CHECK BACK ON THE 13TH JANUARY AT 12 MIDDAY FOR THIS ARTICLE!
WE’D LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE INVOLVED, THE PEOPLE READING OUR SELF-HELP JOURNEY AND ALL OF THE SMALL BUSINESSES THAT HAVE HELPED US THRIVE. WE ARE THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU, AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO EXPAND IN THE FUTURE!
Thank you for embarking on this journey with me. Hopefully, like me, you like structure. This is going to be a structured journey with pit-stops in between every milestone. I hope you find this productive like I do, and I think this structure of self-improvement will prove most effective in many people.
- Let’s be conscious. Self aware. Comfortable. We’ll focus on the mind, and what we need out of this. Do you need certainty? Closure? A schedule? Is your life hectic, or boring?
Meditating is a wonderful way of gathering your thoughts, you don’t need any materials and you won’t have the stress of having to gather everything together. Here are some great articles on meditation that will help you embark on this journey.
“Most first-time meditators find it strange to sit in silence, to sit with their innermost thoughts and feelings, to sit and do nothing — the very things that, funnily enough, the mind tends to resist. To a beginner, meditation might initially feel a little alien, perhaps even daunting, but that’s okay. People have been meditating for around 3,000 years, and many have doubtless experienced the same reticence, trepidation, or wonder that first-time meditators often feel.”
“Maybe you want to start meditating because you want to be less reactive, feel less stressed, or be more focused. Maybe meditating is part of a wider personal development plan of some kind. Or maybe you’re looking to improve your relationships with those around you. Whatever the reason, training the mind through meditation is training in awareness, and training in awareness offers the potential to fundamentally transform your perspective on life.”
The Headspace app is amazing for meditation…
The goal for the self-help period is to slowly assess your situation and raise the boundaries you set for yourself subconsciously. Hopefully, throughout this period you can take a step back at reassess any problems that you’re perhaps dealing with.
My experiences with yoga:
As you might know, I have muscle weakness and joint inflammation associated with joint hyper mobility disorder. I like to use cannabis to alleviate my symptoms, and I self-medicate with micro dosing and regular intervals + breaks to maintain my low tolerance. I have a fast metabolism which is useful because a dab will reduce pains, anxiety and inflammation within my body – and it won’t even affect my mind.
Yoga allows me to release tension in my joints and maintain the flexibility that is so imperative to keeping my pain levels low. Alongside this, I also find it helps with regulating my breathing – and it’s quite a mindful thing to experience.
I hope we can embark on this journey together, and if you need any further help/guidance shoot us an email or message us on the instagram and we’ll be glad to help. YouTube is also an awesome place to watch videos about this sort of thing!
Thanks for reading as always.
