Nature: Take a walk. Let the beauty of nature feed your soul. Walking has been shown to be valuable in improving mental health, particularly depression, so it is important to try and walk daily. Be mindful, embrace each step and you will be sure to feel rejuvenated afterwards!
Boundaries: Set boundaries. Protect your precious time and energy. It's important to learn how to say "no" to things that over-extend you and instead make time for things that matter more.
Action: Take action. The journey to find yourself begins with one step. We often loose our sense of identity while caring for others or just dealing with the normal hustle and bustle of life. It's so important to take action to do the things that make you feel alive. Do you enjoy painting? Bike riding? Yoga? Reading a book? It's up to YOU to make those joys come to light.
Power: Own your power. Every storm brings a fresh, new beginning.We are always facing something and because of this, it may feel like we lose our power during the extra tough times. Self-care is how you take your power back! Stay strong and diligent in taking care of YOU in order to weather every storm!
Blessings: Count your blessings. A grateful heart attracts more joy, love and prosperity. The power of gratitude helps us to express thankfulness and appreciation, which impacts the overall experience of happiness. There is always something to be thankful for!
Dance: Studies show that dance can help you lose weight, stay flexible, reduce stress, make friends, and so much more. Dance is so much more than exercise – it's about getting to know you. So dance like nobody is watching and reap the many benefits that come along with it!
