Listen to you

listen to you

  • Flat out? Furloughed?
  • Lonely in a household? Crowded in a household?
  • Frightened? Stressed? Peaceful? Even relaxed?
  • Short of sleep? Plenty of sleep?
  • Emotionally drained? Emotionally stable?

It feels that there are different worlds at the moment, not based on the country we live in but the demands on our skills and our time – and the wellbeing of ourselves and those we love.

We may not have any choice over the cards we are dealt, but we can learn to play them as skilfully as possible.

Learning how to pace ourselves in whatever situation we find ourselves is a vital skill.

Take a minute today, sitting or walking, to notice messages your body is giving you. Our physical make-up tells us so much, if only we will pause to hear.

Listen to these messages, with gentleness. Don’t judge yourself. Accept what you find.

Just by noticing – listening – you will be the wiser; you will be better equipped to approach whatever situation you find yourself in today.

Be well.

Refresh

I love greenery. I love the outdoors. And I also love waterfalls. And I got all three in plentiful measure on holiday recently.

Whether you are able to actually go on holiday or not, we can look at nature wherever we are. And as we do there is refreshment, almost a healing within.

There is something about the natural order – even the divine order – that we connect with as we look and see. In the everyday of life, we can look, see and be enriched. At times of confusion or a lack of wellbeing, we can find clarity and peace. We can sometimes catch a glimpse of the glory of God himself, whether we choose to use that phrase or another.

Be refreshed: look and see.

This is Mindful Monday on 23 July 2018.
