If you’re struggling ~ hit the pause button

If it triggers you ~ stop doing the thing

Pinterest saved from google images (I think) w/out finding the original photographer which really sucks, ’cause they deserve the credit.

If you feel overwhelmed or too out of sorts ~ stop doing what you’re doing

If you can’t regulate your emotions ~ step back, sit down, just breathe

We live in a world that demands and insists that we go, go, go, go, go ~ our six senses are drowning in being overstimulated all the time.


Turn it all off

There was a power outage this morning. For three hours when I was supposed to be in a virtual conference that already had a speaker that triggered my “furious” buttons. I didn’t even care that I was missing the others. I needed to find my center.

I decided to lean hard toward NO electricity or connection with anyone anywhere. Except my dog, who is not feeling well.

Green space (new age talk for go outside) 😉

Drink a lot of water

Appreciate the sun (or shade)

Get creative with reimagining life ~ during stressful or hurtful times, it’s the BEST time to think about what your life would be if you were doing exactly what you wanted to do.

Do no harm to self or others but get into your own headspace & go camping there for a while.

Thinking about all the people who have to work in this hot mess of a world right now ~ hit the pause if you can and if you can’t ~ shut off your emotional attachment to your job and embrace the audacity to be happy even if you’re having a shitty day.

We all have ’em

Here’s to the fog that hides the feels and the sun that warms it all back up again.
