I wrote in my blog before that if we allow ourselves to feel negative feelings we create more space and positive energy in our body. How else is it possible to build this healing space and energy? By indulging our 5 senses. It allows us to pause and to stop the world around us for a few seconds or even a few minutes. It is a good way to reconnect with our body in order to sooth and nurture it.
We often think winding down, relaxing needs to be planned and we need to make big time for it. Making little time a few minutes a day just for ourselves is always possible. It’s all about sensing your 5 senses mindfully. It can be the taste of your coffee or tea, the walk you take wherever you go or the view out of a window you enjoy wherever you wait or sit. Any feeling. It is not about the best taste or the best view it is about your awareness. About taking a pause from any situation. It is the key to bring more ease and peace into your life.
Indulging yourself means being kind to yourself. A lot of people have a hard time with it, because most of the time we keep pushing ourselves to accomplish faster, to be better and to work harder. We become quickly disappointed and critical with ourselves. We would never treat our friends the way we treat ourselves.
Think about it. Are you kind to yourself?
