If you’re still with me on this, allow me to ask:
Is it possible you’ve been in your head too long or too much?
1. Certainly, if you have headphones or earbuds, the podcast is a quiet tool. When you give yourself a few minutes to gain new concepts, insights, or even perspective, you can create a shift in feeling and/or outlook. You can also repeat, regenerate, and recreate, or increase those shifts.
Ask yourself, “How else can I apply this?” or “Where else is this message relevant in my life?” Each episode has some or many options… delivered with a gentle approach and even some laughter.
2. Consider engaging in a writing practice. Pen to paper, old school, 100%. For a few minutes. Daily if you can. Imperfectly? Yes! Absolutely. It can look like picking up your pen and making a solitary mark on a page. This can count as showing up, especially if you’re feeling totally resistant to the idea at all.
You may be thinking something along the line of, “I can’t possibly add one more thing to my day,” or, “It’s not that important that I make time for myself or my feelings, my healing or some peace… I’m fiiiiine.”
I would offer that maybe you need time for care and settledness even more, if those are your initial kinds of thoughts.
Feelings come to be felt and then they get to move on once we’ve experienced them. The thing is, we’re encouraged to not feel… much to our detriment. We get more wound up, tighter, and pressure ourselves more. We can’t get to peace or healing with pressure. We get to peace and healing with presence.
And it can be simple. And it doesn’t have to take all day, or an hour, or even half-an hour… it can take a few minutes. And it can count. When you count it.
I have 2 brand new options for you below, in addition to the latest podcast episode. Scroll on down and know that you are invited to either and both: Pen-to-Paper Daily and Going Inside.
