Today I want you to start thinking about how to create space in your day to just do nothing! What I really mean by that is to step out of your To-Do list, all of the things that you feel like you have to get done before the 24 hours is up and really find quiet time. This could be 20 minutes, this could even be 10 minutes. Start to cultivate some time throughout your day that you could be quiet and still. So many of us are going through life busy, going from one event to the next, getting the kids to this practice and school and career balancing and we are losing the essence of what life is really about. The enjoyment that life is there for.
So to create space in your day to just be and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, that's where I really want you to get. It can be 20 minutes a day, even 10 minutes to start, but just come into stillness. If you are inside during winter, snuggle up to a fire with a good book or allow yourself to drift off. If you are somewhere where you can enjoy nature, go outside and feel the earth under your feet. Sit on a park bench or watch the ocean waves just crashing one after the next. Follow the flow of your breath. Do something to quiet your mind and allow yourself to come into stillness and really enjoy breath and life's beauty.
That is this week's task, not to put it on your To-do list, but I want you to focus on how to step away from the context of your busy life and really find a moment, 20 minutes is what I'm calling a moment, where you can enjoy the peace, the quiet, the serenity, the rejuvenation that allows you to enjoy that moment. That is what you are going to do this week. You are going to focus on creating a space for you, a certain room in your house with a candle, quiet music or a good book, or it may look like coming outside and taking a nice walk. I want you to make it something you don't have to do but something you look forward to doing. This is one of the best gifts you can give yourself throughout your day.
The healthy benefits to this are so great, because we are all going through life at such a fast pace. We forget to slow down and look around us. Half the time we don't even know what the weather is outside because we are so connected to our electronic devises. So turn your devices off, connect with yourself, quiet your mind, enjoy 20 minutes. That's all I'm asking. I promise you it will have a beautiful impact in your daily living.
