It’s such a prolific saying, the idea you can feed your soul and feel content, happy and full.
But you really can do those things, we get so caught up in living and making a living that we forget to nourish your soul, take time out and feel good about ourselves. Life really can get so busy, work, family, friends, that we forget that it is ok for us to do something for ourselves. It’s not selfish by any means and it can actually sometimes be necessary to take that time.
So what is it that makes you happy? Write a list, right not write out a list of all the things that make you happy and content, the things that bring a smile to your face and warm your heart (no matter how simple those things could be) Now right next to that list write down how many of those things on that list you actually practice or allow yourself to do….. big difference right!
So why aren’t you doing those things? I get that some things on that list arent a part of every day life but how many of them are, how many of them are simple pleasures you could easily fit into your life. You really do have access to so many things so why arent you allowing yourself the luxury? No matter how simple some of these things I want you to try to find a way of fitting them into your life and know that its ok, that you deserve it.
Take a long bath with candles, get your hair or nails done, ready a book, watch a movie, even something as simple as doing your make up a little different or wearing an outfit that makes you feel special. When you do the things that make you feel good your body releases serotonin (the happy hormone) Seratonin flows when you feel significant or important, when you feel happiness or satisfaction.
You can increase your serotonin levels in so many simple ways, eating right, getting active, getting outdoors, getting a massage. All of these things are simple and easy to fit into your life and will release ‘the happy hormone’.
Do things that feed your soul, not your ego and you will be happy. If you are doing things you love every day the universe will gravitate towards you, this is how the world works, don’t waste time impressing others or doing something that doesn’t make you feel good.
So from today I want you to do at least 3 of those things on your list that make you happy, release the happy hormone and ‘feed your soul’
