New Year’s Rituals
The fresh start of a “new year” can be a natural time to create a new, supportive ritual for yourself. One definition of ritual is: a ceremony or action performed in a customary way.
What are the things you know support you in being your best self?
Here are some research-based activities that have been shown to improve our health, well-being, mental functioning, emotional resiliency, physical fitness, and energy level….not to mention bring a sparkle to our eyes and increase our sense of humor!
– eating whole, fresh, unprocessed foods
– deep breathing
– listening to/reading inspirational words
– hearing good news
As you go through the challenging time of a career transition, which of these are you committed to giving yourself the gift of each day?
One of my favorite motivational quotes is, “small things done on a consistent basis produce big results over time.” Build any of these seemingly little things into your daily habits and notice what improves over the weeks and months.
Here are a couple new resources that friends and clients have been finding helpful to make meditation and yoga easier to fit into their daily ritual:
Insight Timer — meditation app for your phone, free
http://www.gaia.com — daily yoga videos of varying lengths, .99 first month
May you be a supportive friend to yourself : )
May 2017 be the year in which you shift into the work & life that excites you!
All my warmest wishes and support,
