Making A Moment of Calm


Creating time for a moment of calm has been so vital for me at the moment.
Because, I'm not going to lie there have times recently that have been irate, scary and just down right draining! By taking a step back and being in the moment, you can gain some control back. Just taking some time to be with yourself. To catch your breathe and help you move on with your day. Is essential.

Even if it's just for a few minutes before you get out of bed. Perhaps it's a few deeps breathes to quieten a rushed lunch break. Or maybe you have the luxury of creating some time one evening to truly switch off and relax. What ever time you have, make sure you make time to unwind.

It is easy to let the world pile up on your shoulders. The weight of your worries, daily chores and the everyday grind can make you forget that you are in charge of how you feel. You can always give yourself some space, some time to loosen up and lift the weight off yourself. Self care, in my eyes, is like self preservation. You have to make yourself stop sometimes and just. be. calm.
 
My favourite time to enjoy the stillness of a serene moment of calm is on Sunday Mornings. Sunday morning is like a clash of the beginning and the end of a week. The slow start to Sunday's, even if I get up early, means that I don't feel rushed by the day. I'm in control, I have given myself time to move through the morning with ease.

The feeling of calm vibrates through me, as I sip on my warm cup of tea and sit with my thoughts, whilst deciding what to eat for breakfast. I then take the time to pamper myself with my skincare routine. Sometimes I want to wear makeup and other times I don't. Is this going to be day for chores or box set viewing? Who cares? These are moments of calm that I can create for myself, help me to engineer my day to be a good one. I've laid the foundation for a good vibes. And if successful, those good vibes and calm thoughts go on to create a happy week. I do make sure I take a time out for some calm and relaxation through out week, but Sunday is like my reset button.

Sunday mornings are my moments of calm....when's yours?

  1. Great post liz.
    My trouble is I feel guilty if I stop and have a moment of calm... There is always something else I could/should be doing instead. I'm working on it though because making time for myself is important too so I can be my best self for maddie and my other commitments :-)
