Listen In

Where are you in this moment?


It's so easy to get distracted and disconnected from ourselves with so much going on around us, between the busyness of daily life and the turbulent times we are living in.

I invite you to pause for a moment. Take a few slow, deep breaths, filling your whole body with the deepest breath you've taken all day. Feel the breath all the way down through your legs to your toes. Ahhhh! Do this as many times as you would like.

As you breathe, scan every area of your body, from your head to toes and back up to your head.

What do you feel in your body? Do you feel tension, constriction, aches and pain, anxiety, fear, elation, gratitude, expansion, ease, softness, relaxation, or something else? Are you experiencing different sensations in different parts of your body? Be curious.

What is your body communicating to you through these sensations? What does your body want you to know?

Listen deeply.

What is the first thing you hear? Do you need food, more rest, exercise, some quiet time to yourself, a hug?

Do you trust the wisdom you are receiving from your body?

The body is a magnificent container and a messenger. In addition to our physical functions, the emotions, thoughts and energy we experience also manifests in the body. One example that you might relate to is the "gut feeling" that often happens when something feels really off.

I encourage developing a practice to tune in to the body regularly. Being aware of the body's messages gives us an opportunity to choose how to best support our well-being from a spectrum of healthy resources that are available to feed us physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Many resources that sustain us daily and support our foundation of health are:
* eating a variety of colorful whole foods
* being in nature
* engaging in movement that you enjoy
* water
* connection with a friend, partner, loved ones or a pet
* sleep
* healing and nurturing touch
* meditation, prayer, quietude
* less doing, more being

You may add some of your own healthy resources to this list as well.

It is essential that we remember to listen, nurture and nourish all aspects of ourselves in all situations so that we are more resilient to stress, healthy and whole, and present for the journey.

What is ONE healthy resource you will integrate into your life today?

There's more to come on this topic. In the meantime I'd love to hear about your experiences in the comment section below.
