Kick Start Your Wellness: A Guided Meditation

When Life Gets in the Way

Reconnecting when life gets in the way 

 
 

It’s been a while.

Too long, in fact.

Life got in the way.

I sound like my clients.

Because I am like my clients.

Like you, there are things I love.

Things I enjoy.

Things that fill me up.

And like you, life happens.

When life gets tough, everything but the bare necessities of life gets pushed aside.

The irony of course is that when life compresses us…

when the oxygen starts to escape the room…

at the very moments when we need more air…

we choose not to breathe.

When we most need to practice self-care, we self-sabotage.

When we need tenderness, we criticize ourselves.

When we need space, we take responsibility for everything that went wrong.

When we need refueling, we let go of the parts of ourselves that feed us.

When we need self-acceptance, we seek external approval.

So what to do when life feels like too much?

Breathe… 

 
 

 
 

INHALE

WHAT ARE YOU TAKING IN?

No matter how small, do something nurturing for yourself EVERY DAY.

Take in something that fills you, even a little.

You must.

You cannot bleed the well dry.

For me, it’s a run or a walk in the fresh air with my music, writing, one of my ‘world-famous’ coffees on my coffee couch, a talk with a trusted friend, a guided meditation, or hugging my kids.

If you don’t know what it is for you, carpe diem.

That’s your project for November.

Experiment and see what feeds you, bolsters you, nourishes you.

Just make sure that whatever you choose is easily accessible and dependent on no one but you.

(Running off to a tropical paradise for a month would be nice but….)

EXHALE

WHAT ARE YOU LETTING GO OF?

Dump toxicity from your life.

Toxic people, toxic relationships, toxic food, toxic habits, toxic thoughts, and toxic self-talk.

You know what and who they are.

Don’t be afraid.

We owe it to ourselves to be conscientious stewards of our life force.

Be selective.

Be kind.

Be forgiving.

Be gentle.

And all that starts with you.
