Getting outside, even for a few minutes, is effective.
This Week's Pondering:
Q: How do you find solace during stressful moments?
A: I go outside.
It’s been an emotional and busy week for me. The hasty days have been a reminder that I need to step away and find solace. I’ve been instructing eleven new life-coach trainees, and we’re talking a lot about developing a connection between our mind & body.
Teaching the importance of developing this relationship reminds me to continue my own work. When I notice a tug in my chest, it’s my cue to step away from whatever I’m working on, and do something as simple as step outside for a walk, or even just a deep breath of fresh air – arms raised like a sunrise over my head.
This single action is enough to connect with myself and creates a calmness moving forward.
P.S. It’s not uncommon that I need to do this multiple times an hour.
