Creating a consistent and sustainable self-love practice will keep you connected to what life is all about. When you are in a place of grounding and trust, your relationships, money, and health all benefit. When you are in a place of worry and anger you are eating "emotional" junk food.
Tracy's Tip: 5 Steps For Emotional Grounding
Gratitude Practice: take a moment every day to chart what you're grateful for in a journal. I like to do mine at night.
Mindfulness: whether you want to sit in meditation or just being present with the task at hand (i.e. brush your teeth and do nothing else).
I love Chopra.com meditations.
Find your emotional community. For me, it is not a church, but for you, it may be. I have my yoga community and meditation community. Finding people that "get you" and also love what your like to do can be empowering and motivating.
Try Heart Opening Yoga Poses to release any negativity in your body. Our physiology can dictate our feelings, i.e. how we hold our bodies. Are your shoulders rolled forward or up to your ears all day? How does that make you feel? Do yoga for 5-10 minutes every day to feel vibrant and happy. Try this sequence.
Use essential oils to keep your mood lifted. They are best on your sternum, temples, and wrists. I like Grapefruit, Orange, Bergamot, and doTERRA blends Elevation, Motivate, and Cheer.
