The next blog post in my Nourish series is about feeling overwhelmed. Overwhelm can happen for many reasons, it may be a case of having too many things to do, too many people making demands on your time, challenging and tough situations, or emotional overwhelm to name a few. Learning to find your place of calm during times of overwhelm is an important aspect of self-care and nourishing yourself.
This next post in my Nourish series will be looking at small ways you can nourish your mind, body and soul to practice self-care during those really busy days.
The next post in the Inspire series is about control and responsibility. ‘The one thing you can control is your reaction’ is such a powerful message. Often, in the past, I have thought it is incredible difficult to control my reaction, particularly in situations which result in strong emotions. However, I have recently been working on this as a way of helping to lower my stress levels.
Create Nourish Inspire Interviews is a new blog post series, where I interview people who inspire me because of the way they follow their heart and seek to do what lights them up. I find out more about the journey they have taken and discover how they embrace their creativity, nourish their soul and find peace in everyday life.
This week, I’ve been talking to Gabrielle Treanor, who created gabrielletreanor.com. I’ve been reading Gabrielle’s blog for a couple of years and I love her down to earth approach to dealing with worrying and overwhelm.
Our next topic for the Inspire series is Peace. ‘Choose peace and fiercely guard it’ has become an important affirmation for me over the past couple of years. I have found that by making peace my priority – happiness and contentment come much more easily as I had a realisation that in order to feel happy, I needed to be at peace. I also re-evaluated my definition of success and moved away from the idea that in order to be a success I had to be constantly busy and stressed and that actually for me, having peace of mind was a huge success and largely benefited my health, wellness and wellbeing.
