5 Easy Ways To Find Calm In Your Busy Day

Gentle reader, welcome to today’s blog post 5 Easy Ways To Find Calm in Your Busy Day where I share with you 5 relaxation techniques you can use to reduce stress and find some calm in your busy day.

When was the last time you felt at peace?

You know, that feeling where your mind is totally at ease and your body relaxed. You feel content and satisfied with the world?

Also, what does “being calm” mean to you?

Maybe, for you, being calm represents a state when you totally chill and relax on a sunny beach; or when you are in the flow, for example, making bread, baking cakes, crocheting, reading or just chilling out in the park or nature.

However, if your life is so busy, maybe you can’t even remember what it feels like to be calm and not worry about anything.

Naturally, being human and given the pace of modern day life, you will always have something to ponder and worry about. In fact, according to my dad, if he didn’t have something to worry about, he would be worried! Read more…?


Here’s My Bedtime Routine 2016 Goal Update

Hugs and blessings gentle readers and how are you today? Welcome to this week’s vblog “Here’s My Bedtime Routine 2016 Goal Update.

Well, we are now into the 7th week of 2016 and I’m wondering how you are getting on with sticking with your 2016 New Year Resolutions. Did you make any?

One of my 2016 health and wellness goals is to have a “Restful Bedtime Routine and Be In Bed by 1030pm.

Over the years, I have become a night owl and these days, my body needs the rest. So, I thought, making 1030pm my bedtime, would be a good habit to aim for. However, as you’ll see from last week’s vlog and today’s video, I’m kinda struggling to be in bed before midnight.

This week, I’ve managed to be in bed before midnight on only two occasions (11.08pm and 11.45pm) I’m going to keep making “being in bed by 1030pm” my One Thing because when I do, I always wake up feeling rested and naturally full of energy the following morning, which has a positive effect on the rest of my day.

I have been doing quite a bit of reading and research around the whole topic of sleep, which I am looking forward to writing up as one of my Kindle eBooks.

Like most women over 50, I’m very aware of my health and the need to Read more…?

Greatest Lessons In Life I Learnt Over The Summer

Bless you dear friends and how are you and your loved ones ?

Today’s post is to give you a quick update about the greatest lessons in life I learnt over the summer.

Basically, life hit me a curve ball and once again, I realised how vulnerable I am, how precious life is and how important it is for me to listen to my body.

For the longest while I have been ignoring a gnawing back pain. I have “too much to do” and just disregard the stiffness and pain in my lower back.

This denial ended on Sunday 20 September 2015.

I woke and couldn’t move. My back had had enough and screamed out STOP.  Read more…?


Daily Prayer to Reduce Stress

Blessings and hugs dear friends, and how are you today?

Each and every day, I allow my soul space to breathe and nourish the goddess within.

Over here, I am in an “interesting phrase.”

Over the weekend, after weeks of ignoring this “niggly pain in my lower back”, my back finally decided “enough is enough.”  I woke up on Monday, with a gasp and, with a slow, disbelieving head shake realised I couldn’t move my back.

Yep. My back felt like it was on fire. Every time I tried to move to find a source of relief, I let out a slight moan.

So there I was, Monday morning, 5.30am lying in bed, pondering how do I get up and go to work…

Hurricane Ivan – A Prayer for Calm from the Storm

Waking up this morning I had a rush of energy.

I said my prayers and instead of doing my normal morning routine, I strode over to my bookcase and glanced at the pile of papers and books hanging precariously by their spine on the shelves.

As I sorted the wheat from the shaft, I came across a selection of poems, prayers and blessings I wrote many moons ago.

So many of them, sitting there waiting to be read and serve their purpose.

Sooo, I thought, instead of cluttering up my bookshelf, why not copy them out and publish them on my blog? One a week, and allow the magic to unfold!

So, over the next few weeks, every week, around Wednesday, I’ll publish a spiritual poem or prayer from the archives of papers in my bookcase, to inspire, heal and nurture your soul 🙂

And here is this week’s offering, a prayer for calm and harmony in our world.

I was moved to write this poem, following the destruction caused to Grenada, the island where my parent’s hailed from, by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.

Hurricane Ivan, is recorded as the 10th most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded.

And as news of the hurricane became public, like most people with friends and family living in the wake of Hurricane Ivan, I watched the unfolding destruction with a trembling chin and lips.

Time stood still. I remember the fear and anxiety in mum’s voice when she finally managed to get through and let us know they were ok.

Times like this, when Mother Earth reminds us of her power, it is easy to feel dis-empowered and stuck. My remedy is to write. To pick up my pen, tune in and write. And here is the prayer I wrote whilst taking deep breaths in an effort to calm myself.

Hurricane Ivan – A Prayer for Calm from the Storms

Oh, Great Spirit,

Cover the Earth and all who dwell within;

May all souls see the power of your grace to give life, to restore and destroy.

May all souls feel the depth of your love and knowledge of the cycles of life.

Let those who are able to give their time, love, energy in re-creating an honourable society, where truth, justice and trust reign supreme turning this tragedy into a victorious purging of past wrongs and injustices, inflicted on self and by others.

Let us remember the birds, the bees, adversely effected by the roaring winds of change, let us pray for calm to the seas as the fragmented waves seek union with the shores.

As Oya rises and Kali wipes away, so may Sri Rama and Maha Vishnu restore peace and prosperity to our beautiful land and souls residing there.

May all beings reading this prayer feel the peace and calm nestling within the eye of the storm.

Thank you.

 

Closing Words

Well, Hurricane Ivan, Prayer for Calm from the Storms, kicks off this mini-series of Wednesday Words, a prayer, poem or blessing from the bundle of papers I found this morning whilst decluttering my bookcase! offered to inspire, nurture and heal your soul.

I’d love to know what you think of this idea of publishing a weekly inspirational prayer or healing poem.

Till next week, take special care and be gentle.

How To Love Yourself First – The Power of Self-Care

What do you do to “love yourself first?”

How do you know when you are “loving yourself?”

And, how often do you show love to yourself?

Is self-love something you buy? Something you are born with or a gadget or app you can buy and download via Google play store?

I believe, self-love is core to your existence. The more you learn to take responsibility for your personal care and well-being, the easier it becomes to nurture yourself and therefore others.

I don’t have all the answers, but invite you to watch the video below where I share a few words about the power of self-love, loving yourself first and taking time to nurture your soul.

 

Love Yourself First

So, as you can see, taking time, every day to do something you enjoy, which nurtures your soul, is the perfect way to enjoy loving yourself more!

Closing Words

And if you thought the video was useful and have a friend who is going through a tough time “loving herself”, please forward this video to her and make her day.

And as usual, what tips and inspirations do you have to share with our readers, which you use to boost and strengthen your “self-love” muscle.

Feel free to share your suggestions in the comment box below

Thank you.

All the love
