Just for you

Let’s think about doing things just for you.

In the same way you would take time to restore your muscles, it’s important to take time to restore your emotions.

Hard core self love.

I take a lot of time to listen to my body and my mind, because I really think that’s where all the answers come from.

I suppose it’s a meditation in a way; the key is awareness.

Knowing what your body actually needs to feel good, the same for your mind, helps you to take responsibility for your own happiness.

Do more things for you.

Things that make you feel good.

Dance on your own. Twerk it all out if you feel like it.

Laugh at yourself.

Be conscious of your personal development.

Of course it’s easier said than done, it’s hard to find the time, but I think you can always make time.

I love taking the time to reevaluate where I’m at. What I want going forward. Making sure I know what actually makes me feel good. Be candid and honest with yourself. Being honest with yourself is damn hard, but trust me, it’s worth it.

I feel like every time I do this something changes. I feel more focussed. More bad ass. 

All the feel good vibes.

Connect to yourself fully.

And trust yourself.

I know a few people who seem to find it difficult to spent time on their own. Give it a try. I take a lot of time to do things that truly serve me – maybe even too much – and they usually involve being alone.

But I’ve found that the more love you can give to yourself, the more love you can give to others. It grows exponentially.

There’s a huge difference between being alone and being lonely.

Love yourself.

And treat YO’SELF.

Know that there will always be aspects of fear in your life, you are only human. I’m my own worst critic too – take a step back and trust.

Life can get a bit much sometimes, we can get caught up in the daily grind. Always having so much to do, what’s the next task, the next move. It sounds cheesy AF but slow it all down, be a bit more in the moment. Take it all in.

I do a lot of yoga (quite often in my underwear … why the fuck not) and I take a lot of baths. I spend a lot of time with my animals, go for walks, take in my surroundings. I dance. I laugh a lot with my friends. I listen to music far too loud. That’s what makes me feel good. When I write, I go into total hermit mode, and sometimes that’s just what I need.

Be aware of yourself,

but be light and go with ease.

What do you do, just for you?

 

Namaste,

  1. Great post and pictures ! I would practice yoga too, with my new yoga wheel 🙂 I love this new prop, the backbends and the abs are entering a new dimension, it feels so good 🙂 Add a smoothie with macha tea to seal the practice, and I am totally and fully ready for the day.
    Taking time for ourselves is vital, and we really need to make the time. THe happier and fullest we feel, the more we can give. Seems obvious, but it took me years to realise !

    1. Thank you so much! 😊😊 Oooh I must get one and try it out. I have to be honest I don’t really use props in my practise but something I’m going to start doing 😊 Will add a new perspective I think! It’s so true – it seems like such a simple thing, both to talk and to write about, but when it comes down to it, it’s not so easy to do for ourselves. My life dramatically changed once I realised the benefits of this! How lovely! 😍

      1. Oh yes it does add a new perspective, it’s really fun plus when you do a backbend, it is all about your back. no need to activate your wrists too much, the sensations are pretty different, yummy 😉
        Namaste dear 🙂

  2. That’s absolutely well written and described, lovely thoughts can’t find a place where I could say you’re wrong and focusing on how important to be honest and real with yourself proves how good this is!!
    I totally admired it!!
