This week’s positive word

Taking time out to assess and soothe your body and soul is the key to moving forward.
How many times have you heard people saying, ‘I haven’t got time …’ These are the people who need it more than most.
So if you’re one of those people who feels the need to keep moving, there’s no time for chilling … ask yourself how fast are you actually moving forward? If you feel you simply CAN’T STOP! Even the thought stresses you out. Then you are probably that person that needs to relax.
Here’s this week’s therapeutic creative writing exercise: if you’ve been doing some of the writing exercises you will see that some are best completed over a week. This helps to give you an overall view of events, circumstances, feelings and emotions that are taking place in your life.
So, this week, start writing a journal, look back over it week by week and see how fast you’re moving. While writing your journal put some feelings, thoughts and emotions into your writing, turn your writing into a relaxation technique. It’s an amazing method. If you do this, you’re still ‘working’ as you’re writing down your achievements, but at the same time you are actually allowing yourself to put things into perspective.
You may need to just put on the brakes for a while and tell yourself to just stop and listen.
Listen to what your mind and body wants. Give yourself chance to breathe. Give yourself chance to relax and be able to move forward.
We have a rule in our house, it’s actually one of my favourites:
These are the best nights for me. It brings home what is important. We all have busy lives, but it’s important that we make time for each other, and even if this means crashing on the sofa, watching a film, eating popcorn and crisps, that’s not only relaxing, it’s totally nourishing to the soul.
Wishing you love, happiness and fulfilment always
