First off, all I can say is: Wow.
I was so inspired last week reading everyone’s #storybehindthephoto. I hope everyone is feeling empowered in their vulnerability and truth- telling. The world is in desperate need of more of that these days, so thank you for your bravery.
After a challenge that felt so public and exposing, it was nice to take on a more private, quiet challenge. Scaring your soul can look like big, bold moves but sometimes the smaller actions can be just as powerful. In order to successfully and continually show up in the big challenges like baring your truth to the masses on social media, we first need to fill our own cups.
We need to really be with ourselves, and nurture ourselves, and set ourselves up well. In my opinion, we can make or break this in the opening moments of our day.
This week’s challenge is to SLOW DOWN, and begin your day with a focus on breath.
Bonus: participate in some new centering activity, like morning pages.
Here are some helpful resources:
A 3-minute mindful breathing meditation
