Move your mind, Move your body, Move your soul.
There's a whole lotta shaming going on out there. About how people are parenting, hoarding TP, exercising (or not), eating carbs, making jokes, not staying home, etc.
The fact is, we are all dealing in our own ways with this moment in time. What works for me doesn't necessarily work for my kids. Or my husband. Or for you. We are all dealing with things differently. And that's ok.
People are people. Some of us don't like to be told what to do. Some of us want to be told what to do. Many are experiencing fear. Here's how fear can show up:
Maybe you see yourself on this list? Or members of your family. So when you notice these behaviors it can be helpful to realize the feelings underneath. And to connect with those. The truth is, we all feel fear to some extent or the other. My hubby is probably out of work for a while. While I love spending more time with him during the day and I logically "know" that we are going to be ok, I still feel a little nervous about it from time to time.
So I check in - am I ok right now? Yes. I have sooo many amazing gratitudes at this moment in my life. What do I need right now? On this particular day, I needed a walk. I needed fresh air and nothing but the wind in my ears.
So I did. I went for a walk and here I am in the car before coming back home. See the backseat? No one wanted to come with me. And that's ok.
I counted my steps and synced with my breath. It felt good. What do you need right now? Go do it.
You gotta feel it to heal it.
