Trudy Vains – a Yoga Teacher, Author, and Spine Fusion Warrior – helps us press the reset button with 5 top tips.
So we have said good-bye to 2020, we all have the notion that New Year Resolutions are the way to go, but how about we think about things we are grateful for, and making room for more of that.
If you read ‘Control Your Chaos Over Christmas’ it’s full of ideas that can help control your energy and make sure you know that you are the most important person in your life.
Bring those tips and these ones, into this brand new year, and have the best time ever!
1 Gratefulness/Vision Board
Ask yourself ‘What am I grateful for?’ or ‘What/Where/How can I create more gratefulness?’
Use paper clippings or magazine cut outs, photo’s or even print things off the internet, place them on cardboard or a canvas with glue, and go for gold. Create your board, it’s yours, make it with your own love and nurturing.
You can manifest things for the future, with wishes and dreams on a vision board as well. The world is literally your oyster, go get your dreams.
If you are not crafty or do not have any magazines or clippings around, just write things down. Release to the universe that way. It’s exactly the same thing.
You never know what the universe has in store for you. So put forward what you desire and watch it all unfold, but be patient, as it will take time.
2 Find Your Mantra
Create a mantra for yourself, repeat it many times a day. Something like – ‘I am at peace with my mind’ or ‘I am grateful for everyone and everything in my life’.
Two of my favourites are –
‘What you believe is what you will receive’
‘Where your attention goes, is where your energy flows’
Be grateful that your body moves that way that it does.
Use your energy wisely, release those endorphins. Whatever brings you the most joy – do that.
Try some of these –
Ride a bike
Singing along to your favourite music
Whatever your thing is – did you know that this is also meditation? Yep, it sure is. When you focus on one thing at a time, that is meditation.
4 Kind Words
It’s about time you spoke more kindly to yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror and say ‘I am so grateful to be here’ or ‘I am beautiful’ these words will boost your self esteem and create more kindness into your life, and even more to be grateful for.
Be grateful for your body. What you put into your body is what you can expect to feel. The old saying, ‘You are what you eat’ is most definitely true. If something is not sitting well with you perhaps eliminate it and try something else. There is much goodness out there with food.
Let’s make 2021 about feeling good and being grateful – because you deserve it.
