Do you ever have days where you feel like you have lost a bit of your soul? Feel like you are completely just going through the motions of day-to-day life.
How can we continue to pour our everything from our “cup” if our “cup” becomes empty? We must refill our “soul cup!”
Simple tips to refill your Soul Cup:
-Cut the wine and late night TV and rise early and enjoy a cup of coffee and a uplifting book in silence.
-Leave your loved one or kids with your partner and take a drive while blaring your favourite tunes.
-Put a few of your favourite, uplifting quotes on sticky notes and place them around your house where you frequently view them. Repeat them to yourself once you see them.
-Take an extra long hot shower or bath.
-Put on your favourite music and head out for a run or walk (alone if possible.)
-Fill your body with healthy, nutritious foods.
-Simply breathe. Inhale for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 5 seconds and exhales slow for 8 seconds…
-Look in the mirror and compliment yourself.
-Go dance in the rain.
