I recently stumbled on a grounding exercise that has to do with the 5 senses, for good use when feeling generally disconnected from myself as I tend to often always feel. And it has been of great help. So this new month, I thought it would be good to plan grounding exercises for my all round lifestyle, not only my senses. The whole point is to make me very conscious and in the moment many more times than just when I feel disconnected.
Our daily lives and activity can take a huge toll on us such that we forget the tiniest things that actually constitute huge parts of our daily living. Hopefully this helps my all round lifestyle and I can literally engage in the common saying – stop to smell the roses, or coffee, or whatever it is that needs smelling really.
So this month I plan to;
Feel the water in my hair on wash day, watch the part of my head that it trickles down the most from and not just bounce off too quickly from the shower. (I hate bath time)
Wait for my food to cool off evenly so I don’t have to waste energy blowing on each spoon (not that I’m a greedy eater)
Stop listening to all these “successful people don’t sleep” talk that’s very prevalent on social media and take my 15 minutes nap every time I need it.
Memorise the name of my perfume so that when people ask me what I’m wearing I can stop saying I don’t know. (it’s ridiculous that I don’t know isn’t it)
Drink more water (as long as it is flavoured with lime please)
Sing aloud when my favourite music comes on my iPod during my workout. I always want to go for it but “shyness” in the gym. No more.
Actually laugh out loud if something my friend sends me on whatsapp is really funny, not just type LOL with a straight face.
Watch Kiss Daniel’s Jumbo video over and over and laugh at his facial expressions like it’s the first time.
Clean the red nail polish on my toes that has been there for too long and began chipping off.
Turn tetra packs upside down to get the most of the yoghurt or drink inside. Can’t be wasting all the ones that hide in the corner of the box, in this recession :p
I’ll like to hear about your conscious decisions if you have any.
Have a Happy November ahead. 🙂
