We can all get stuck in a rut, but there are so many things we can do to nourish and renew ourselves in all areas of our lives.
Some of the new things I am doing this year are the flollowing: Getting better at speaking Spanish (DuoLingo is a great language app), volunteering with Hands On Atlanta and Project Open Hand, trying Cryotherapy at Icebox Cryotherapy, reading more books, getting more proficient at boxing and kickboxing, traveling to new places, making new connections with people in the wellness industry, creating an online course in wellness, cutting down more on waste and continuing to declutter my house, playing pickleball, and playing my ukulele more.
All of these activities will nourish my mind, body and spirit. I want to do a better job of watching my thoughts and focusing on how I want to feel. Our thoughts can sometimes bring us into a negative headspace. It takes practice to notice these thoughts and to tell ourselves they are only thoughts, and that they can be changed.
It is hard to balance all of the different areas of our lives, but it is possible if we focus on how we want to feel.
What are some new things you will do in 2019 to recharge your life?
Create a great year!

We can strive to have our minds, bodies and spirits in alignment, but this state of wholeness can be very elusive.
I think about a loved one who has deteriorated in all three areas, and it makes me realize the importance of a good attitude. gratitude and being resilient.
I think about my body breaking down and know it will be a challenge for me to stay positive when this day approaches because I have always been an active person. That is why the mind and spirit are so important to nourish. Whether it's art, music, dance, writing, cooking, learning something new or volunteering that makes our hearts sing, we all must have something in which we feel a connection or purpose.
Taking care of ourselves is not selfish. If we don't put good food in our bodies, move our bodies, stretch our minds and let our spirits soar, we can't truly give freely and care for others.
Get a massage, go for a hike, take a personal development class, get coached, meditate, go dancing or to a concert.
Balance is the key. I'm not saying don't eat the donut or binge on a Netflix program once in awhile, but become aware of where you are out of balance. Awareness is always the first step to change and wholeness.
What is one new thing you can do starting today to nourish your mind, body or spirit?
