Today is Wednesday, September 14, 2022. Feeling inspired by the majesty, strength, and resilience of nature.
A quote by: Queen Elizabeth II. “We all need to get the balance right between action and reflection. With so many distractions it is easy to forget to pause and take stock.”

September, marks change and the final third of the year. It’s a great time of year to check in with yourself. Is it time to pivot? If you are feeling that you have run into a road block, it may be time to let go or reframe a situation so you can move forward.
Practice this Mindfulness Activity to Re-energize your Body and Mind whenever you need a moment to reset – while waiting, before, after, or to transition between activities.
Establishing a regular practice of pausing makes it easier to reset when you need it the most. You can start your practice at any time, even now.
- Straighten your spine. Roll your shoulders back and down, smile to yourself, & relax your jaw.
- Take slow deep belly breaths, allowing your stomach to rise with each breath in and relax with each breath out. You may find that each breath gets better and better. Allow your shoulders to relax on each exhale.
- As you exhale, picture blowing out bubbles.
- Exhale your gifts to the world in those bubbles.
Recharge yourself, tap into your strength and share positive energy when you repeat:
“I am [*Name*]. I can do this. This is temporary. I have successfully handled difficult challenges in the past. As I connect to my inner self, I am open to the Happiness and positive energy around me. I send loving kindness and compassion to all people including me. Together, we can do great things.”
With gratitude and appreciation for all beings,
