It’s no news to any of you that life is busy!
Whether we are busy parenting, working hard in our jobs or doing both, it’s very full on.
Over the coming months Circle will be encouraging you to “take 5” as part of our aim to raise awareness around mental health.
This week I’m tasking you some self care homework! Next time you are in the supermarket or ordering your shopping..”take 5” to choose a really nice tea! One of those calming ones that you keep meaning to buy or have run out of! The ones that feel a bit more self indulgent and not your typical go to brands.
Next….each day “take 5” to make that tea and take a few deep breaths..you might be at work, home or even in town where you could take 5. Nothing is that important that you can’t “take 5” and just give yourself a break.
Think about yourself, watch the messages you are giving yourself, your inner voice, is it kind or critical? What do you observe when you stop?
I would love to hear what teas you buy & like! Also I want to know if you struggled to take this 5 minutes? Did you feel guilty? Or put it off? What was your inner dialogue?
Could you be with yourself for 5 minutes? Often we fill our day as much as we fill our minds, what are we escaping? If you can just be, just breathe and take 5 not only can you reduce your stress levels, you can gain space in your head that it may be crying out for.
keep me posted!
