Self Care Monday
The Antidote - Your Weekly Remedy
Counting your steps obsessively? No? Well, let’s start!
Have you heard about this silent walking thing? It's like the latest self-care trend for the mind! Now, before you think I've gone all zen-obsessed, hear me out. This is legit.
Silent walking is basically taking peaceful strolls all by yourself without talking or checking your phone. I know, shocking concept these days, right? But get this - it's said to be super good for mental health and reflection. A solo, tech-free walk? A perfect recipe for getting our minds right!
See, when we walk in silence surrounded by nature or somewhere chill, it creates space to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. No convos, no notifications, just us and our thoughts getting some much-needed quality time. And in this nonstop, crazy world, don't we all need that?
Silent walking lets you tune in to your feels, get introspective, and maybe uncover some inner wisdom. No need to fill the space talking - the silence holds the magic! It's like hitting the reset button for your brain. And who couldn't use that?
Now more than ever, we're searching for calm and clarity, am I right? Well, research shows silent walking can reduce stress, improve concentration, boost creativity...all kinds of good vibes! It's the perfect mindfulness practice for queens like us needing to take a healthy break from the pressure to always be stimulated and "on".
So why not give it a try? Set a time, grab your fave sneaks, and walk out your worries, girl! Silent walking just might lead you to a brighter, more centered you. Your mind will thank you. This is self-care for the soul! Loving this practice for us!
Your Monday Mantra to start this week is:
Progress is better than perfection. Perfection is unobtainable, but progress is always possible.
Song of the Week: Harvest Moon - Poolside
