HAVE MY HEAD UP IN THE CLOUDS… ALWAYS!
By: Heather Hooke
Happy Sunday Funday trubeautys! Without a question, Sunday is my favorite day of the week! I love everything it stands for… Relaxation, peace, play & simply enjoying life. Sunday is a time for letting your hair down and just letting go in every way! So what, the bed’s not made and you skipped watering the plants in favor of updating your social media status, eating naughty food and catching up on your new fav show mid-day… It’s all going to be okay, your To-Do List can easily take a back seat for a day!
For some Sunday is a time to connect to their religious or spiritual center; for others it’s to catch up with close family and friends celebrating the latest holiday or birthday; and others it’s simply a time to bum around blowing off all “shoulds” and “adult” day-to-day responsibilities.
Whatever or however you choose to spend your Sunday doesn’t really matter. What matters most is that you allow yourself the time to really let go and relish in some much needed R&R!
I’ve always been a busy body and someone who is always “doing”. This ambitious side of me is probably what has lead me to be so passionate about my Yoga and meditation practice, because it forces me to slow down and me in this moment connecting to my deeper thoughts and feelings. It allows me to fully relax and let go and connect to my source of energy and power!
While this might seem like common sense to some, being able to relax and fully let go without guilt is something, us women especially, really struggle with. Maybe it’s the fact that we live in a world of women who are somewhat expected to (& often) “do it all”… The amazing mother, organized house wife, prepared PTA president, giving volunteer and successful business woman – all while taking care of ourselves and aiming to stay as balanced as possible. Sure, done… easy! Who needs to sleep?! Lol.
But the point is, while I’m totally “pro” women doing it all and the feminist movement overall, at the same time I think women really struggle with giving themselves permission to simply let go, to toss all responsibilities for what they truly want to do – and, most importantly, to do it without guilt!
I decided this was a challenge I would take on and I gotta tell ya, it feels AMAZING!!! Sure, like any over-achiever, modern day woman I easily slip back to old ways of thinking, but weirdly I’ve found that by allowing myself this full day to completely let go; to relax, day-dream, read, write, connect, and be creative – I actually am more productive later in the week! My batteries are charged.
In addition, I find that I’m more organized, less drained, and have this wonderful “freedom day” to look forward to!
So if you are one, like many of us, who has a hard time letting go of your schedule or ever-growing To-Do List, I ask, toss the guilt and just give it a try. Just blow it all off starting now! See how it feels and where your time and attention go. This will give you insight on not only who you are, but also allow you to focus more fully when you do go “back to the grind”
Allow yourself to connect to your inner child and discover the dreamer within – you might surprise yourself!
