I have been working on a method of pursuing goals that is centered on the three areas of Self; mind, body, and soul. The idea is to do one thing, minimum, every single day to satisfy each of these three areas. Beginning September 24th, right here, I will begin posting what I like to call simple “Daily’s.” Each day I will post suggestions on small and simple things you can do to satisfy your Self. It’s important to remember that the numbers shouldn’t be your focus. It doesn’t matter how long, how many, how perfect. What matters here is that you do it and remain consistent. Each small step over time will add up to a great distance.
Daily’s for November 20, 2018.
Mind - Meditate for 45 minutes. If you’ve never tried meditation before, all the more reason to give it a shot right now! Meditation and focused breathing is one of the best ways to get yourself into balance. If you are experienced, do your thing. If you’re new, I would suggest finding a short guided meditation on YouTube, finding a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, and putting on your headphones. Relax and breathe.
Body - It’s snowing where I am right now so if that’s the case for you as well, GO PLAY IN THE SNOW. Take your kids out and make snow angels OR if you’re a big kid like me and the snow is right, build a snow fort, have a snowball fight! There’s no need to curse the snow, it’s fun. If you’re somewhere warm and sunny, then you have no excuse to not be outside. Get out and go for a 45 minute walk in the park!
Soul - Do you have any hobbies that you don’t usually have, or make, time for? For me it’s really as simple as putting on my headphones, laying back and listening to an entire album. Especially one I have never heard before. Set aside a portion of your day today and dedicate it solely to that one thing you love. Maybe it’s knitting, maybe it’s crossword puzzle, maybe it’s crafts, or carpentry. Whatever it is, put everything else away and focus on your soul.
