Terrific Tip Tuesday!

Welcome to TTT! This week, we’re going to talk about taking a moment to yourself!

We live in such a fast paced world. How can you take a moment and slow down?

Right this second you can…

Rub your hands or feet while you’re reading this post
Breathe. Open a window (if you can) and breathe in some fresh air!
Name 5 things you are grateful for, or 5 things that make you happy.

Other activities to try…


Paint! Use whatever you have available in your area. Take even a few moments and just dive in!
Take a bath. There are some great “bath teas” that you can make. L loves lavender, mullein, and activated charcoal in her baths.
Stop and smell the roses…literally! Get outside, go for a walk, stop and smell the flowers!
Eat a meal with someone. Your spouse, family, or even a complete stranger.
Take your shoes off and walk in the grass. There are great grounding techniques! (Imagine yourself as a tree, with your roots digging deep into the ground, feel the Earth beneath your toes!)
Meditate
Yoga! (There are several great YouTube channels out there – L recommends “Bad Yogi” and “YogaYak“)
Read a book (bonus points if you visit your local library!)

….. and SO many more other ways!

What are some of your favourite ways to unwind? Let us know in the comments!
