Trust your body
Your body is your temple, it is best to be aware of your body, to take time, if only for a few minutes, every day to just sit quietly in a private place where you won’t be disturbed.
Sit, listen to your breathing, listen to your heart, close your eyes and concentrate on your whole body.
This can take you into sleep if you are not sleeping as well as you need, so make sure you change your routine, ideally 8 hours is best for everyone, but we need more under stress; the time of year can effect you too, as often winter keeps you attached to bed and summer allows far less sleep. Give yourself some “me time”All year round.
Remember that each and every cell is alive, and your muscles and organs all work together to keep you fit and whole
Concentrating on breathing is the first step into meditation, which is one of the best practices for clearing your mind So keep going, even when something slows you down, be it long grey days or personal disappointments, just keep going step by step, baby steps are best.
Be kind to you
Be your own best friend, see yourself and accept yourself just as you are – not easy I know unless you’re already very wise and beautiful,
One of the simplest ways of being happy is to banish any negative thoughts, if you have a negative voice in your head, this is the best place to start, don’t let that voice control you – challenge it instead. Do what you really want to do as much as possible, and make sure that “no” is firmly in your vocabulary, so you don’t get bullied by others
Remember the good times, think of the things you love, and keep things that remind you of loving times close.
