Whether your day is hectic and filled with work, caring for children or other relatives, or whether you are retired or can make your own schedule: We all need dedicated time to just kick back, relax, and be. Time where we are not "doing" anything. Although Yoga is "doing," many people find that a yoga class or their own yoga home practice, with asanas and savasana, is their time - a break from giving outwardly and a time for receiving restoration and energy from the great Universe around us.
Others find that a nice walk, gardening, or watching a good DVD with a cup of tea to be, well, their cup of tea. What ways do you take time out to nurture yourself? Perhaps you like to snuggle up with a good book, take a cat nap with your cat, lay down in savasana for an entire 30-minutes, go bird watching, or just sit in quiet meditation with or without candles, incense and soothing music.
Perhaps a hot bubble bath, a massage, or sitting on the sand at the beach watching the sun go down?
How do you nurture your soul and restore, especially after periods of intense activity or stress?
May you discover (or rediscover) ways to nurture your soul, take time out to be with yourself, and rejuvenate and feel restored.
