‘Sometimes we need to let go of the old ways to discover the new…’
What I have come to know:-
When we have been given the precious gift of movement let’s use it daily with purpose.
Yoga & Pilates
Helping us to find that balance, focus and remaining centred;
Early morning and before the sun sets gentle mindful walks in the mountains of south-west Turkey or by the sea.
My time to become aware of my surroundings,
the sounds, smells, the air I breathe, how I feel as I walk.
The ‘Sea’ is my healing therapy. I lie on the stony beach, the lapping waves my music. Swimming…. ‘Being’ in my infinity flotation tank, I focus on each stroke.
When we exercise with purpose, our experience changes. The rewards are immeasurable, our bodies, mind and emotions, uplifted as we gain strength and confidence.
Mornings I like to get to the page to write with inspiration, armed with a timer. Crucial breaks; every 45/50 minutes. I sip green tea, stretch, step outside for short bursts of fresh air.
The Energy Thieves
As a creative, whether I am in my writing cave or working on the business as a creative or developing my brand/raising my profile; it is essential to engage with my followers.
My windows to interact with my audience:-
Disciplined in how I choose to use these platforms, I ensure they are not my ‘Energy Thieves’
When I write, I need a peaceful environment.
During my creative hours, my mobile and social media outlets are a strict ‘no go’ area.
On a roll, when I have ignored that timer, to my detriment, I pay the price later.
On my noticeboard hangs a Sign;
‘What can I and only I do right now that will move me forward in my work today’
From ‘Eat that Frog’ by Brian Tracy
Those lines pull me back to focus.
Meetings/conference calls are carefully planned and timed.
My work day finishes at 3 pm. At the point of resting, I remove myself from the office, laptop, my mobile remains on silent.
I surround myself:
With people who are positive, who serve me well as I do them. Those who motivate, inspire, raise my spirits and energy.
Noise, stimulation; mindless, endless chatter, TV, loud music, crowded areas, traffic, shops, lighting are my energy sappers.
‘When we tap into our power and choose a life that truly works for us, only then will our lives flow as it needs to.’
Join me for Part 3:- ‘Recharge and Sleeping Rituals.’
