Soulful September

Soulful September has arrived. I have been thinking about this day for months.
I originally wanted to jump into the deep end and try to do everything with the peace and mindfulness of a zen monk but since the day has finally arrived and its not a distant dream anymore, I may have to be a bit more realistic.
So what nurtures my soul the most?

No 1. Nature. -Tomorrow I’ll be embarking on my first road trip along the iconic Great Ocean Road and getting reacquainted with my tent and the great wilderness during our camping trip in the Grampians. I’m quite lucky that this coincides with the start of Soulful September as I don’t have to put a lot of effort in to get my daily nature fix for the next few days.

No 2. Exercise. -I would love to confidently say that I will do yoga every day of September, and I will give it a shot but won’t make any promises that may cause me guilt later on.

No 3. Mindset. -On that note: stop feeling guilty -this is one of my major barriers to inner peace. I’d like to be content, or at least present at each moment. If I want to have a day to myself- feel joy in that. If I want to have a ‘lazy day’ -relax into it. Stop thinking about all the things I ‘should’ be doing and just be grateful for the opportunity that has presented.

I will start with these intentions and build onto it as we delve deeper into the month.
How will you honour yourself this September?
