Day 18: nourishment
In the busyness of the everyday, taking time to nourish the soul doesn’t reach the top of the ‘to do’ list as often as it should.
What nourishes your soul? How would you like to incorporate more of this into your life in 2015?
Yes, I know. I used this picture in an earlier post. But since this prompt is about nourishing the soul, I thought I would show you one of the things that nourishes my soul – hugging trees.
Hugging a tree, I can feel its warmth – its life. I am transported to a haven of tranquility as I close my eyes and rest against a tree. The energy coming off it is indescribable. Hugging trees is something I highly recommend to everyone.
Anytime I spend out in the woods rejuvenates my spirit for a good two weeks or so. It settles me and helps me see things more clearly.
Other ways I nourish my soul:
Music – either listening to music or playing the piano and singing.
Photography – being outside – taking pictures – time vanishes and I am in heaven.
Reading books that enlighten me helps feed my soul as well as my mind.
Anything creative nourishes my soul. Whenever I spend time drawing, crocheting, sewing – making something for someone else – I am nourishing my soul.
Allowing myself to be still from time to time is nourishing – embracing the quiet and allowing our minds to just be in the moment without distraction.
I hope to do more of these things in 2015 and remember to slow down and just be in the moment rather than rush about.
