In my post yesterday, I wrote of the need to make good choices on how to spend time and also to choose activities that nourish the sacred within you.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.– Dr Jean Shinoda Bolen
Nourish The Sacred Within You
I made a short list of activities that will help me (and perhaps you) to get the spiritual vitamins to nourish my heart. This is apart from the time I spend on spiritual reflection and writing.
- Spending time outdoors. There’s nothing like being in nature to increase feelings of wellbeing and refreshment. 15-20 minutes a day will give me a good boost.
- Walk or engage in some sort of focused movement. Since I don’t do yoga, I’m settling for a walk but I need to make sure I do this joyfully.
- Listen to music and sing. I love music. I love to sing. But often I get so caught up doing routine stuff that I forget to listen to music or sing aloud. (Sounds sad, but it’s true!)
- Waste time daydreaming. I need to stop doing, stop reading and just spend 10-15 minutes just daydreaming.
I’m sure there are a lot more things I can do to nourish the sacred within, but for now, I’m settling on these.
Please add your suggestions on what you do to nourish the sacred within you.
Today I’m joining Kate Motaung’s Five Minute Friday. The prompt is ‘Nourish’.
