We need you 💓
Never underestimate the power of slowing down and giving yourself time to process your emotions.
Sometimes it feels like the world is moving so fast, with a constant stream of unsettling news.
But when you turn off your screens, find a quiet spot, maybe step outside, things start to slow down a little.
Connect to your breath.
Feel the earth beneath your feet.
Feel the vibration of emotion in your body.
Slow and steady, be with yourself without distraction.
Take a moment.
Acknowledge the pain. The sadness. The discouragement.
Hold as much space for yourself as it takes to witness your human condition with love and compassion.
This won’t magically make everything okay. There has never been a time in history when everything in the world has been okay. But it will remind you that, at this moment, YOU are okay.
And in order to help the world, we have to start by helping ourselves. Only when we are okay can we show up and do whatever we can to make sure others are okay, too.
Maybe it will all be okay, maybe it won’t. It will probably be a little of both.
But no matter what, you are important and here for a reason.
Take good care of your precious heart.
Tend to your incredible mind.
Nourish your beautiful body.
We need you.
