Yourself

Remember, to take care of yourself!

Give yourself a goal, every week to reward yourself. A couple of weeks ago, I started to garden. Although I probably wont see the results for a couple more weeks. I am really proud of myself. I think the spring onion and chamomile bush, are going to do well. Although I know everyone has told me that you can’t kill spinach. I think I may have…

This week, my goal is to get back into exercise. I was actually doing quiet well during Summer here. Then I lost focused, so I want to start again. I’ve been even wondering if I should just start in the home. I’ve still got all the stuff. It’s Winter here right now, so the thought of going outside for a run, or heading to gym is very off putting. Though I have never actually gone to a gym to do exercises.

The biggest reason that I’m doing it is because although I’ve been taking cholesterol tablets. Apparently my cholesterol has not shifted. It’s neither gone lower or higher. Which I’m not entirely sure that’s a great thing. So my Doctor wants me to go from 20mg to 80mg. The next couple of weeks, he wants me to take the 20mg, but twice day (becoming 40mg). When I feel there are no side affects, to then go up to 80mg.

What harm can a little exercise do?

What can you do to take care of yourself? It doesn’t even have to be anything that exciting!

Nurture Thursday – Returning to Yourself

Nurt Thurs – Returning to yourself

We’ve been talking too ourselves and each other, about this new “norm”. We have to start doing things to make sure that these feelings and emotions, don’t stay the norm. Try to keep things as normal as we can, so when it’s all over, we don’t feel empty.

Nurture Thursday – Start with Yourself

  • If you need a good cry, you have that good cry.
  • If you need to tell somehow you feel and you don’t know how, write them a letter.
  • Sometimes even half an hour of doing what you want can make a huge difference.
  • Although completely boring to some, eating healthy can actually make you feel good. Especially if you have been doing nothing but eating badly.
  • Start each day repeatedly telling yourself something very positive.

Nurt Thur – LOVE YOURSELF

Nurt Thur – LOVE Yourself

I have always felt like the below quote, should have stopped after. “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love”.

The best thing I think, I personally have felt with life, is to truly learn how to love. Love everything, love yourself, love the planet, love your soul, love what you have in your life at every moment. Then to be loved in return (truly loved) is just the cherry on the pie…

My Mantra

I have been hearing a lot lately about Mantra’s and I have not only been wanting to figure out what they are, but what are they meant for?

How to create your own personal mantra – Oprah

A Personal Mantra is a sound or a group of words that are personal to yourself and yourself alone. You repeat them to yourself…They can be syllables, a sound.

Spiritual Mantra’s are a sacred utterance, a sound, a syllable, word or phonemes, or group of words in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers. A Mantra may not have a syntactic structure or literal meaning.

Mantra – Wikipedia

The most well known Mantra is “OM”

OM

Om is said to be the first sound heard at the creation of the universe. When each syllable is pronounced fully, you should feel the energy of the sound lifting from your pelvic floor all the way up through the crown of your head. The droning sound of the Om is said to unblock the throat chakra, which can lead to more attuned communication with others.

Why am I writing all this?

I want to find my OWN personal mantra…The best way I’ve discovered that most people do this is too:

  • Write in a journal for 30 minutes, write in the mornings as your mind is usually clearer at this time.
  • Rewrite what you have to written, put more a pertinent focus on what you’ve written.
  • Write a focused, declarative statement.
  • 10 minutes a day…Say this statement. You can do it walking, you can do it eating…
