As a mindful meditator, every morning I wake up to practice a grounding, calming, loving and inspiring meditation that helps me to feel centred, nourished, creative, confident, kind and connected. Essentially I practice a chakra meditation for my physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.
Too often in my life I had waken up stressed, anxious about the day ahead and all my responsibilities or worried, rehashing the past. My meditation is a reset button and for me it work best first thing in the morning. Its scientifically proven that you can train your brain to receive these positive thoughts to set you up for the day ahead to be the best version of yourself.
Today was one of those days when not only did I wake up from being physically ill with a stomach bug but also I received a terribly negative phone call 730am giving me one more warning to toe the line or I’m out. I was accused of creating a playground for myself..
As I reflected on the word “playground” it made me smile, as I was grateful to express my child-like self, my true creative self, I pondered that the other extreme is a “prison” which is deeply confined and guarded, constrained, and almost punishing.
Truly grateful to have an attitude that life is my playground and I’m ready explore it with curiousity, to find fun and joy as we connect with life’s other little ants - I feel we all are, busy ants running around with list of things to do, on a path to achieve our goals
Take a moment today, its mental health month & menopause day ,pause ad reflect on whether you live in a playground or a prison…
