When we ignore our spiritual hungers for play, for pursuing our passions, for connection, we become imbalanced.
This lack of “soul food” leaves us vulnerable to body disease and lends itself to less than mindful eating. The food behaviors can go either way. A new cycle of dieting begins or we eat past physical needs for a false sense of satisfaction. In my work with clients, I always integrate a piece on self-care that goes beyond the body to the true self, the soul self. This week, pay attention to what nourishes you deep inside and put THAT at the top of your to do (or better yet TO BE) list. Here’s some inspiration:
*Commune with nature-the body is the earth element so honor your longing to be
close to the natural world.
*Connect with friends and family-forget Facebook! Get real and actually be with
the ones you love.
*Let yourself dream and even make a move towards it-maybe it’s getting back to
the sea or starting that small biz. Only you know what you really want out of this
life and you deserve those experiences.
*Create - paint, color, write, whatever, just do what you love!
I wish you fullness today and always!
