This morning as I was sniffling away in bed, gulping my medicine and feeling pretty sorry for myself I decided that it was probably best if I spent a bit of time with my head in OM Yoga Magazine (which has always been a sure fire way to perk me right up).
Low and behold I come across an article entitled "Positive Vibes - Seven steps to the feel good factor".
Thanking the Universe (it's always ALWAYS spot on) and thinking that I could really do with some of that amidst my snotty nose situation I got to reading.
Two of the seven steps screamed out at me. Dance and Focus on the present. I'm gonna share how I bring these high vibing steps to life.
Trust me on this one. When I'm in a funk the surest way that will get me out of my head and into my body and having fun is a dance party for one. I shut the door on my yoga room, put on some of my favourite tunes (this, this, this and this are my favs) and go for it.
I LET EVERYTHING GO and I don't give a damn what I look like in the process.
All I care about is what feels good. And dance is the perfect way to do this.
Now take yourself off and have a dance party.
Focus on the present.
If you've read my blog for any length of time then you'll know that I'm a massive advocate for meditation and mindfulness. My meditation practice is how I remain connected to the present moment and it's in the present moment that I'm most powerful.
It is in the present moment that you are most powerful.
If you haven't tried meditation before then a simple way to try it is through the Headspace app or you could even head to Innerspace in Covent Garden for free guided meditations!
Fancy finding out the other steps?? Head over here and have a read for yourself!
