Finding something that feeds your soul, is just as important as the food we eat.
To nourish our inner being can bring about peace and tranquillity in our lives.
When you have hit rock bottom and struggle to get out of bed and can only divide your day into bite size pieces, to manage your day, the last thing we want to do, is dedicate even more time to something else.
For any of us who have struggled with Mental Health equilibrium, life can be challenging but if we can just start with 5 mins a day of something, that makes your heart sing...it can bring huge benefits to our mental chatter.
For me it was Gardening, I have loved the smell of the earth and the feel of plants since my Dad taught me how to garden many years ago. There is something very grounding about digging the ground and weeding. It was for me, as if I was de cluttering, not only the garden but my mind too. With every weed I pulled it was as if I was preparing the ground for new shoots, not only in the garden but in my mind too...clearing away all the negative thoughts to enable new growth.
For those who may find that too daunting, start small, find a packet of seeds of a flower that you love and plant them, nurture, water and feed and watch them grow.
When they are big enough to transplant to the garden, you will see them blossom and bring colour and a sense of achievement into your life.....#lovegardening #feedyoursoul
