2 Grounding Rituals To Calm Your Mind

Hello Sunshine!

During this time of year, as nature slows down and takes a quiet breather to restore and replenish. How about revisiting our own daily rituals and inviting simple yet effective ways to refill our own energy tank?

Heading into the holiday season as well, this can be a time of year that may heighten our nerves and trigger deep emotions. An ideal time to implement daily rituals to ground ourselves, and help us "restore and replenish".

Ultimately, these rituals help to prime your mind for success as we turn the page and step into a New Year refreshed and able to handle its opportunities, challenges and stresses.

I want to share with you two of my favorite daily rituals and invite you to try out adding these tiny rituals to your day too. 

2 GROUNDING RITUALS TO CALM YOUR MIND

So often in our fast-paced world, we seemingly forget to relax! Even low-level activities which we may be thinking are ways to relax often serve more as a mental distraction and aren't truly relaxing at all (watching Netflix, anyone?)

What if we were to allow ourselves to drop into a state of quiet neutrality, where all of our hurried, harried, frazzled parts can come back together and rest?

Savasana or final resting pose is typically reserved for the end of a yoga practice but works just as blissful as a ritual on its own.

It's a 5 to 10-minute easing into the floor or ground upon which your body is placed - on your back, with legs comfortably apart, arms opened, palms facing upward. Eyes are closed. Breathing is calm, slow, and deep.

Adding a moment of savasana to your day helps to prime your mind for success as you return to your day and all its many challenges, opportunities, and stresses.

Another way to return to calm and combat the day to day stresses we all face is to add a simple, yet effective 2-min breathing ritual

Take a slow deep breath in, for a count of four. Hold the breath for a count of seven. Release the breath out for a count of eight. Repeat this 4-7-8 breath cycle four times.

You can add this breathing ritual at any time and multiple times throughout your day. It will help you relax, get centered, grounded, and calm before you react to any stressful situation.

Both of these rituals serve as forms of physical and energetic surrender, in all the best ways. It’s a conscious and powerful choice to grant ourselves devoted time to recharge and receive the bliss that comes with sweet surrender.
