Life has a tricky way of convincing us that rest is impossible. We can get so caught up in the rat race that we feel like we have no time. We may convince ourselves that we don't even need to unwind, recharge, or practice self care. Worse yet, sometimes we are sold on the idea that we haven't earned the right to rest.
Prioritizing rest is challenging if you're stuck in any of these mindsets, so it's important to create irresistible opportunities to restore your inner battery.
That's why I've created Mindful Minutes.
Mindful Minutes are practices that allow you to rest in a minute. Just a minute to slow down. A minute to come back to the present moment. A minute to put yourself first.
They are the perfect entry into the world of self care for even the busiest people, because we all can find minute-long pockets in our days.
Today I'm sharing the first Mindful Minute, a Self Compassion Mantra inspired by Dr. Kristen Neff. It's my go-to when I'm experiencing emotional stress, overwhelm, or pain. I hope you love it, too.
