It's so easy to run yourself down while trying to help others so much that you find yourself in the need of care. Sound familiar? I previously listed ways you can live more intentional in 2017 by staying fit & removing the distractions in your life. Now it's time to seek out the #3 way to live more intentional in 2017:

Practice Meditation Type Activities

I will admit that I am still working on being in a quiet peaceful state. But I am learning when to say "NO" to tasks or activities that disturb the balance in my life. Some tools that I use to get back on track are:

Listening to spa type music that I find on my cable station Music Choice and of course they have an app to download so you can take your slice of serentity with you on a hike.

Practicing yoga by subscribing to my favorite yogi Rodney Yee at Gaia.com. Mr. Yee has been apart of my yoga experience for along time. I still consider myself a beginner but his training is great no matter what stage your in.

Finding quiet time first thing in the morning & just before I drift off to sleep at night to pray to God. This is my time to thank my Lord & saviour Jesus for waking me up in the morning and bringing me back home in one piece at night. Sometimes I listen to worship music to get my mindset in the right direction or a sermon. I like Pastor Rick Warren, John Gray, Joyce Meyers, Steven Furtick & of course TD Jakes. They all provide me with a different perspective on how to stay connected to my faith that feeds my soul.

What about you? What are some ways that you seek to establish more peace & balance in your life so that you can continue to serve others? Sharing is caring.
