There are so many things that can bring stress into your life. Whether it be your job, a long commute when you would rather be home, relationship worries or outside pressures. So, choose to fill your soul with things that satisfy.
Fill Your Soul With Goodness
And finding a way to alleviate those stressors – even for a while is well worth it. You may give pieces of yourself on a regular basis, so it is important to fill your soul with a bit of joy each day.
You have probably noticed that certain smells can evoke certain memories. Your sense of smell is one of the strongest emotional triggers.
Therefore, find candles, bath products, oils, or incense that can take you to your happy place. Use it around your home for a bit of stress relief each day.
A Thing of Beauty
Just the viewing of artistic and creative works can invigorate your mind and knock your stress level down a bit, but somehow people put off owning a piece until someday comes. Live in the now and indulge yourself by purchasing something artistic or creative and place it where it can make you smile everyday. If you want something beautiful that is also useful try a custom piece of functional fine art for a hands-on experience.
A Body in Motion
You have had a long day and you are tired, so why in the world would you want to do one more physical activity?
Yoga is more than an exercise, and if fact there are many poses which lend themselves more to meditation than to breaking a sweat. The slow movements and the focus on certain positions helps draw your mind away from worries, can regulate your breathing and potentially lower your blood pressure.
Don’t forget about the power of music to help you relax. Try running a nice warm tub, add your favorite scent, and soak while Adagio for Strings plays softly in the background.
Your mind may just drift away on a cloud of well-being. Yes, fill your soul with good things. Be well. It’s a blessing.
