When was the last time you just laid still or sat still and just allowed yourself to Be?
I know, it sounds weird, right?
Especially in this day and age. Who has time for that?
Well, none of us may actually have time for it. But that’s why I’d like to pose a challenge to you!
At some point in your day. Whether it’s in the morning before you actually get out of bed, during the day when you’re driving somewhere or last thing at night before you actually fall asleep. Allow yourself to just Be. Take a deep breathe and settle yourself for just a moment.
Here’s a second challenge for you 🙂
Being present with those around you.
What does that mean, you ask?
When was the last time you went to eat a meal with someone and you had your cell phone out?
Do you spend time with friends and/or family but are thinking about other things?
I find myself caught up in what I ‘need’ to do, ‘should’ do that sometimes, and maybe too often, I am not truly being present with those that I’m with.
Whether it’s with your loved ones, your little ones, family, friends or co-workers. For that matter, the cashier, pharmacist, etc. Try to remind yourself that being present is important too.
We owe it to ourselves and those around us to be and to be present, even if they are not. (role modeling is a great thing :))
Have you taken any time lately to just be? I hope so! Enjoy life 🙂
