As the year winds down I have been reflecting on what it means to have abundant health. In so doing I believe having abundant health is all about self care. Radical self care, actually.
What do I mean? Well, when you make the time to understand your natural bodily rhythms and then take action in that direction, you are practicing radical self care. You begin to understand how your body wants to move, what it wants for food to feel deeply nourished from within, and overall what YOU need to feel ALIVE!!
Why is practicing self care so radical? Let's face it- we are so busy!! As a result, we put ourselves last on the priority list often neglecting even the most basic of needs. When you practice radical self care, you commit to re-arranging that priority list with your needs at the top. You learn how to be compassionate with yourself. You begin to make decisions that light you up and inspire you to move towards your greatest potential!
Stagnation, dullness, and insecurity arise while being too comfortable for too long. Abundant health is created when you are rooted in self care and have the energy to step outside your comfort zone, into the spaces that cause curiosity, presence, and joy. Life truly becomes an awesome adventure!!
Here's a simple practice to help you get started...
Take a deep inhale. Notice the space at the top of your breath.
As you exhale, ask yourself the following question...
Where have I been too comfortable for too long?
Notice what comes up. Decide what you want to do about it.
