Hey Nourished Ones! Did you Show Up today?
Showing Up means connecting with myself by pushing my body, listening to my mind, and nurturing my soul. To me Showing Up can be done in a variety of ways.
I originally had “Wellness” as another page on this website but when I started to reflect about what Showing Up actually means to me, I realized that wellness cannot exist without a healthy lifestyle. I believe that Showing Up incorporates both health and wellness practices on a daily basis to live an abundant life.
My top 3 ways to Show Up include: Exercise, Podcasts, and Reflection.
- Anything that makes me break a sweat. Getting in a daily dose of movement is a part of my daily routine. It not only makes me feel energized but it also puts me in a good mood and reminds me that I am stronger and more resilient than my mind allows me to believe.
- My 5 favourite ways to move are:
- Resistance band training
Below is a Leg Circuit comprised of 3 exercises that you can do anywhere with resistance bands to really feel that burn:
- Listening to a podcast about something I want to learn more about. Podcasts are a free and accessible way to learn something new. I love listening to podcasts as I cook or do laundry. Listening to podcasts reminds me that there is so much possibility in this world and that I have so much potential. It is so humbling to know that we are just a speck in existence and that the world is so much greater than us and that there are endless experiences to be had and explorations to be made.
- Any action that allows me to reflect on how I’m feeling and to check-in with my physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. As humans in this digital and increasingly fast-paced world, we rarely have time to cook our own meals let alone to breathe deeply, and ask ourselves questions. Making time to reflect on my well-being and purpose allows my goals to stay at the forefront of my daily tasks and work towards them.
Just like any new task, Showing Up needs to be done consistently. I don’t do all of these actions in one day, let alone in one week or even in one month. I choose a few things to focus on that really help me feel my best and then change things up once in a while. Every day I do some type of movement, I journal, and I take at least 10 super deep breaths. Everything else is a bonus and a treat for me because I have to be mindful of making time for it and to schedule it in.
Whatever Showing Up means to you I can attest that incorporating these practices into my life has changed it for the better. I have learned that no one can nourish your mind, body, and soul but you. I encourage you to pick some of these techniques, to schedule it in daily to create a routine in order to live a nourished life.
As always, I look forward to feedback so please feel free to connect with me. What did you want more or less of? Or simply let me know how you Showed Up today using the hashtag #intheno so I can find you.
