10 of 40 Day 20

Connecting the Dots....

These past 10 days I have discussed meditation, connection with others, finding your inner artist, your inner critic, mindfulness, TED talks, cardiac rehab, balance and forest bathing.  If you watched the TED talk by Jill Bolte-Taylor you will recognize that each of these areas are lighting up our brain.  Igniting a spark of life and connection to our body.  As discussed in the cardiac rehab blog our minds and our bodies are connected in ways that I do not feel we yet fully understand.  And as such we need to flex, stretch and exercise all of the different quadrants of our mind.  Whether we are opening ourselves up to expression in the arts and sciences, to learning new recipes, noticing a forest with all of our senses or sitting quietly in meditation or mindfulness.  Exposing our mind to concrete facts and to the possibilities can not only give us more purpose and presence in our daily lives it can also make us healthier, happy people, living longer more productive lives.  Think about the ways you can light up your brain today and then do it!  Visualize the electricity and appreciate your ability to do so.  

β€œTo experience peace does not mean that your life is always blissful. It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life.”
— -Jill Bolte Taylor, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey

Life Coaching is not for everyone, and I write these blogs for a multitude of reasons but if you are interested in Life Coaching as a way to grow in thought, mind and experience, please contact me.  Coaching can be done in person, via FaceTime or on the phone.  I hope to hear from you - focusing on our overall health is the greatest thing we can do for ourselves and all of the people in our lives. 

Wishing you Grace, Peace & Healthy Living,
