How much time in the day do you spend on your phone?
Are you on it right now?
Working from my laptop and phone means I spend a good amount of time in front of a screen myself . . . but I had a funny little thought the other day that helped me out since I love what I do.
Treat your phone like a C h o c o l a t e B a r! haha yeah!
It’s good to have a little, but don’t over do it. And if you’re gunna go for it, DO IT . . . it’s all good . . . but forgo the next day. ( <– that parts important guys , self discipline )
When was the last time you really looked at a tree and watched a gentle wind move the leaves in every direction?
Did you hear the birds nearby?
Did you feel the slight breeze on your cheek?
When was the last time you heard silence? Silence of your surroundings, but also silence of your own mind.
Words on a page are simply words – until we D e c i d e to let them bring about A c t i o n.
Nature has such a brilliant way of bringing back that silence. That place of calm and peace where we feel comforted by the beauty all around us.
Find your silence – your presence today.
Whether it’s for 5 minutes, an hour, or even just a split second. If its been awhile since you’ve felt completely present in the moment that split second can be life changing.
A split second today, can turn into a minute the next, and 5 minutes the day after.
Our minds follow what we tell them to do. Retraining them to be present in every moment leaves us feeling satisfied and less jumbled, less forgetful, less stressed and tense, and more able to relax and enjoy the world around us.
More present to make good decisions. A feeling of being grounded and stable instead of wired and chaotic.
I choose to follow the example nature gives me. I am apart of nature just as much as it is apart of me. The more I relax into the moment and feel present and aware of all my surroundings the more joyful and full of life I become.
And you can too.
Let your goal today to be to find your p r e s e n c e.
your silence . your time . your space .
you deserve it
