Honouring and Nurturing Your Self
We spend so much of our time focussing on issues, people and things outside of ourselves, that we often ignore our own needs. Simply giving yourself a little loving attention is a beautiful way to affirm your self-worth.
Often we feel guilty for taking time out for ourselves a little "me time" to do something that we enjoy just for the sheer pleasure of it. We feel guilty because the pressured life styles we lead demand we should be busy, busy, doing, doing.instead of just being.
Being and doing no-thing is often viewed as being lazy, or wasting time, when in fact the most loving and productive gift we can give ourselves is to simply sit quietly in meditation for a few minutes every day. It doesn't matter how long you spend in this calming silent space, or what time of day you choose to do it, it's your personal time and should be a pleasure, not a chore.
Taking time out to still our minds and allow our physical body to relax and release tension is a wonderfully calming feeling. Afterwards, you will feel re-energised and your thoughts will be clearer.
Often when our minds are busy all the time trying to cope with a hundred things, we find it difficult to make decisions. Stilling the mind and gently placing the chatter in the background may give you the space you need to make the best decision.
Meditation is not something that requires years of practice. To begin a meditation practice all that is required is for you to gently focus on your breath as it moves in and out of your body. Beginning with a few deep breaths to cleanse and rejuvenate your body and mind will help to oxygenate your entire body at cellular level, including your brain.
