Here begins another moon cycle, another month.
April, my friends - April!!
Time and tides are changing for sure. Today is a full moon which always illuminates our inner crazy and keeps things edgy.
Start ten things and finish none?
Got the will to get stuff done so full steam ahead round in circles you go?
Spring is here in the Northern hemisphere and we have our internal impulses all firing up. So whilst we have the drive to 'do', this also means toxins are leaving the system. This can manifest itself in many ways, mental and physical.
The mental loops can get really excessive, and the stress affects sleep, eating patterns and relationships feel the strain.
So now, really, It's time to take a look at yourself and love on you.
Full power loving.
Your vitality, health and wealth depend on you.
So, with that, my favourite topic right now is the importance of making healthy choices and taking responsibility for our own health.
Our daily practices have a significant impact on our overall well-being, and it's up to us to make the right decisions that promote a healthy and happy life.
This doesn't mean be an overnight enlightened yogi or setting your sights on an unrealistic outcome.
The stories in our head don't serve us. The outcome is not within our control. Rooting ourselves is getting grounded, being present, getting into the body, getting well. Getting really, really well.
Then we love the journey, regardless of the outcome.
This all means making conscious choices that prioritise our physical, mental, and emotional health. We can do this by taking a good honest look at where we are at now, and where we want to be.
Getting a clear vision.
Then - yes - take action on the next step, incorporating healthy new habits and shaping a stable daily routine.
Moving the body regularly, eating a balanced diet of fresh whole foods, getting enough rest and sleep, fresh air and quite crucially, being with ourselves for long enough to recognise how we are feeling.
Just a small step every day. Committing to show up for ourselves.
Give ourselves the security we need by choosing how we live.
A question to ask often, with a long deep breath: What do I need?
Creating a balance between time for yourself and time with others.
Maybe even review - who are the others anyway?
Where is your support network?
Making sure we have trusted allies, and being vulnerable when we need to be - really helps along this journey.
Routine & Ritual
Incorporating nature into our daily lives is also such a powerful way to improve our well-being. Spending time outdoors fires up all the good hormones. Whether it's taking a walk in the garden, park or hiking in the mountains, when we include some time in nature it can become the most profound and simple daily ritual.
Giving silent thanks to Mother Nature is a juicy gratitude booster guaranteed.
Getting grateful for all the things you do have - also boosts those happy hormones.
A ritual can be as easy a three deep breaths and some grateful sips of water. It is something that is done often. It is a sacred moment between You and highest You.
A ritual keeps your laser focus and attention - you are present, you are divine.
The more often you train that muscle to focus - the more improved the focus becomes. In every day life.
Having an accountability buddy is amazing to help create and sustain these practices.
There are a few tips in my free 'Rooted in Wellness' download here.
Taking responsibility for our own health is the number one most powerful way to improve our quality of life.
We are training our minds to focus and bodies to heal. How you do one thing is how you do everything. Focus on vitality and we can radiate this vitality.
No-one is coming to rescue you.
No-one is going to take better care for you than you can.
You have the power to decide, and act.
By making conscious choices that prioritise our well-being, we can live a life that is rooted in wellness and filled with joy, happiness, and vitality. We can play, have fun, and run our business without stress.
We can be a magnet for the people we love, and the people we are here to serve.
Together, we can literally create a happier, healthier, and more vibrant life.
