Self Care Monday
The Antidote - Your Weekly Remedy
Glimmers, unlike triggers, are a wonderful tool for promoting and maintaining good mental health! And we love that. These positive stimuli have the power to uplift and bring joy to our lives. When we encounter glimmers, we often experience a surge of happiness, gratitude, or excitement, which helps to boost our mood and overall well-being. That kind of instant serotonin boost is exactly what a girly pop needs in these harsh winters!!
Glimmers can come in various forms, such as a stunning sunset, a cute gesture from a loved one, or achieving a personal goal! Something as simple as doing yoga for a week or whatever else you’ve set your sight on, if you accomplish it, you give yourself that small boost that can then grow bigger! By actively seeking out and embracing glimmers in our day-to-day lives, we can cultivate a more positive and resilient mindset, making it easier to navigate difficult times.
The presence of glimmers can have a profound impact on our mental health by counteracting negative emotions or thoughts throughout the day. When we consciously focus on and appreciate the glimmers around us, it shifts our attention away from stressors, worries, or anxieties, allowing us to experience moments of peace and contentment. It’s so rare that we just sit back and really enjoy and appreciate the moment. Glimmers act as a reminder that there is always something beautiful or uplifting to be found, even in challenging situations. By incorporating glimmers into our daily routine, whether through practicing gratitude or engaging in activities that bring us joy, we can change everyday from an okay one to a great one, and every week, we will have something to look forward to. Start with a small, uplifting thing to change your day, just to get used to giving your body and mind a moment of peace, happiness, and that boost to better your overall self!!
Your Monday Mantra to start this week is:
I am one with my body, my mind, and my soul, cultivating only love and light.
Song of the Week: New York City - Among Savages
