Slow Down and Check In – A Time for Reflection

Slow Down and Check In – A Time for Reflection

Fall is here, and the temperature is getting cooler, the wind is picking up, and the leaves are starting to change color. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Time to slow down and check in.

It is time for reflection and transition.

Now is the time to get organized and honor ourselves and the life we want to live.

The woods are one of my favorite places to go and reflect. It is a great place to slow down and notice all that is around me. Nature brings all my senses to life. It is a good time to check in and say, “how am I doing?” and “Am I where I want to be in my life? Am I honoring myself?”

This can also be a time of the year that begins to FLY into the holidays and into the new year. I don’t know about you, but I do not want time to move too fast. I want to soak up every moment I can. How would you like to live a purposeful life and feel in control of it?

Having a morning ritual is a great way to start your day purposefully.

Here are just a few rituals to choose from.

First, get up early on purpose. Set an alarm, so that you have time to have YOUR morning before you go out into our busy world. Wash your face. Meditate for 5 minutes. Prayer time. Journal. Yoga or stretch. You could pick one or two and try this for a week. It is AMAZING how it will change your day.

Something I say in the morning as I get started is, “I am here, I showed up”. It is a reminder that I showed up for ME!

This is the time to slow down and appreciate the small things, like a leaf blowing across a parking lot, a nice aroma, an amazing sunset or making time for a rich conversation.

Morning rituals help you to slow down and notice the simple things throughout your day!

This is a great time to get in check in and see where you are in your daily healthy living. Are you living in the present moment? Is your life blowing by without noticing? Are you where you want to be in your body, mind, and heart? Do you have the energy you are looking for?

Let’s get you on track before the holidays come and go. Let’s love our bodies and fuel them with nutritious food and get into the rituals that nourish your hearts and find the tools to help you find balance, so you can take charge and feel good!
