A barrel of sadness lives in my belly. Like all of us I have had my share of sad events throughout the years. Like many others I have not solved this properly and I have been coming to realize that certain upbringing rules still rules me at this age.
I was born a crier,  I’d cry to express my pain but mother hated my tears and I learned to suppress them. So when sad events happened I’d swallow them without even knowing why, the pattern of pleasing my mother was so deep I didn’t even realized that I was just following her rules, old outdated rules that did not apply anymore into my life.
I have swallowed so many of these tears that my belly is full of them. Thanks to some breath techniques I have been cleansing my gut but I still have a way to go or so it feels. I want to let go this sadness, I want to cleanse and dry it and let it go for good. I know a residue will still remain but it won’t be that heavy sigh that goes wherever I go but the gentle reminder of a bittersweet life.

Well Being Practices Everyday

Hi best friends!

What kind of routine do you use every day to make yourself feel better? There is the morning coffee ritual or the quick (or long) shower, exercise? Etc. But what can we do every day to uplift our spirits? To feel vital and energetic? Is there anything at all that can be done to achieve this?

I have a few techniques that would like to share with you and please! if you have any, please share it back! One is the toe tapping. for 5 minutes, laying back on my bed as I wake up I separate my feet for about a feet apart and roll them inwards from the heels until the big toes touch and then separate them back in a constant motion for about 5 minutes. The trick here is to tap both big toes on intervals of about a second.

It is amazing how well it makes something this simple makes you feel! In my case, after I finish my 5 minute routine there is a rush of energy/vibrations running up the center of my body going from the feet to the top of my head that relaxes me completely and helps me reach a state of silence for a minute or two, very relaxing and refreshing.

There, this is one simple action that you can do for yourself every day to help connect with your body, relax and invigorate your mind for the rest of the day.
