Be energized – an invitation to breathe…

Hiya,

A little question for ya: when last do you remember taking a full, deep, and refreshing breath?

Today? Yesterday?

No need to be tough on yourself if it was longer than you’d like. How about taking one now… Far too often, we can be so focused on what we have before us, that we can forget to pace ourselves, and take moments (throughout the day) to consciously slow down…and fill up…to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the many gifts in nature, and be energized.

Nowadays, these paradoxical buzz words seem to come in pairs and they’re the topic of much discussion: “hustle” and “calm,” followed closely by “stress,” and “wellness,” “success” and “anxiety,” then “challenge” and “contentment.” These pairs of conflicting words pretty much reflect the struggle many of us have with finding (or feeling) peace amidst a list of to-dos and goals of to-bes.

Here’s a little video I made for you, as a visual invitation to treat yourself to those refreshing moments starting once a day, even if it’s for 5 minutes at first.

Hi, I'm Indra, blogging from Barbados. Here you’ll find content tips for the creative, refreshment reminders for everyday life, and beautiful nature views from around the island. Get ready to nurture your gifts and shape a thriving business that aligns with your wellness. I'm a writer, singer and blogger who now mostly works from home, balancing house & yard work with creative career tasks. On a quest to grow more grateful each day. As a teen I almost gave up on life; now as a woman saved by grace, I'm living joyfully with purpose, encouraging the overwhelmed and overworked. This blog was launched when I pressed pause of travelling and being busy on the road and moved to a farm in the countryside, where I started growing food, hiking and fishing. Now, I'm on the west writing, cooking, recording, and creating content daily. Thanks for joining the journey, and remember to follow 'Joy within' blog for firsthand updates on new posts.
