When is the last time you left your phone, watch, or the ability to know the time of day, the date, day of the week behind?
Have you ever felt what it’s like to lose all sense of time?
If not- it’s a wonderful way to re-set your mental self. A way to bring yourself back to the mindset/mindfulness that allows you to function more effectively.
As you can see with my site. I took a mental “check out”.
IT WAS PERFECT!!!
Yes- I have tons of material to share with you.
Rather than my device to log my mindful activities, recipes, ect. I logged, old school style ❤️.
Can you believe it? Paper, and pen!!!!
This activity is not always one that some have the ability to do. But if you do, I beg you to try it.
You don’t even have to leave your home. (Although I prefer to.)
Plan an escape. Arrive. And from that point forward, literally live in that moment.
Even if the escape is a part nearby, or your backyard.
No phone, no TV, no watch, no google, no electronics!
You want to know where to go to eat, ASK a stranger!
You need directions, ASK a stranger!
(No- I don’t want the stranger danger talk - let’s be adults. Learn to socialize with your peers, in your communities)
You need to eat….. no there’s no need to follow standard meal times. Eat when your body tells you to eat.
Our bodies, and minds are amazing.
They regulate us without us even acknowledging that it’s happening.
Take advantage of this.
Embrace living in that exact moment.
Tomorrow doesn’t exist, yesterday is over.
The above photo is this morning. A moment that I sat outside, realized as I stretched, it was dawn. My body was saying it was time to get up and move. The air was thick, and humid. Silence everywhere, as I imagined I was a lonely soldier rising before the rest.
I felt rested, and in this moment embraced the power of understanding my ability to love myself, my life, and this gorgeous earth.
I could feel the ground beneath my feet as I stood there. Soft, mildly moist. Maybe from the humidity? My feet were bare.
Still nothing, absolutely silence, as I continue to try to tune into anything happening.
I could hear myself breathing in, and out. A slow, easy pace. My arms began to feel heavy, as I stood there. How long would I be able to enjoy this before others would wake? 3 minutes-4,5 maybe….
In such a short time. So much can be obtained. In such a short time you have the ability to change your whole day.
Take a time out.
Create the environment that allows you to thrive🌱
Create, and grasp that lingering idea in the back of your mind.
You are the author of your story, make your story so uplifting other will want to tag along.
