Welcome to this fortnight’s Quest blog. We hope you’ve been enjoying the long, lazy summer evenings so far. Did you know that our summer holidays provide us with the perfect opportunity to practise exercises that help to ground and centre us? Well, in this blog we are giving you our top tips to help you stay rejuvenated and grounded this summer. Kids on school holidays? Fret not. We understand that for many, the school holidays can add to daily struggles as you try to juggle childcare with work and life in general. You can practise these exercises at a time that suits you. You could even get the children involved and teach them the importance of maintaining their well-being. So here are our top tips for staying grounded this summer:
- Practice Mindfulness: Engage in daily mindfulness exercises such as meditation, deep breathing, or mindful walking to stay present and calm amidst the holiday chaos.
- Set Intentions: Start your day by setting positive intentions. Reflect on what you want to experience and achieve during the summer, and align your actions accordingly.
- Maintain a Routine: Create a flexible routine that includes time for relaxation, exercise, socialising, and personal growth. Having a structure can provide a sense of stability during the summer break, especially if you have children at home.
- Connect with Nature: Spend time outdoors, whether it’s taking a walk in the park, going to the beach, or hiking. Nature has this amazing grounding effect and can help you feel more connected and at peace.
- Limit Screen Time: Reduce your time spent on electronic devices and social media. Disconnecting from technology allows you to focus on your surroundings and engage in meaningful experiences.
- Engage in Physical Activity: Incorporate regular physical exercise into your routine. Whether it’s going for a swim, practicing yoga, or playing a sport, physical activity can release tension and boost your mood.
- Prioritise Self-Care: Take care of your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Engage in activities that bring you joy and relaxation, such as reading, listening to music, taking baths, or getting a massage or even some Reiki.
- Practice Gratitude: Cultivate an attitude of gratitude by reflecting on the things you appreciate in your life. Keep a gratitude journal or share your gratitude with others, as it helps shift your focus to the positive aspects of your experience.
- Set Boundaries: Learn to say no and establish healthy boundaries to protect your time and energy. Prioritise activities and commitments that align with your values and bring you joy.
- Connect with Loved Ones: Spend quality time with family and friends. Engage in meaningful conversations, create new memories, and strengthen your relationships. Positive connections with others can provide a sense of belonging and support.
These tips are meant to guide you, just remember, everyone’s needs are unique. You can adjust and personalise them to suit your preferences and circumstances. Enjoy your summer holidays and make the most of your time to rejuvenate your soul and stay grounded and centered.
