It seems like I keep recommending these books over and over again when it comes to mental health! Have you read them? Brene Brown is so practical when explaining what it means to live in your own skin and lead in whatever capacity you find yourself in unapologetically. Please, if you haven’t read (or listened to) these, friends, start NOW!
Have you heard of HIIT? It is something I try to “hit” when I miss my morning yoga or running and it also gives me another dimension to my workout. It keeps me engaged and, the best part, it is QUICK! Here is my “go to” video!
My quiet time is of utmost importance to me, BUT I find it super hard to get it in AND work out all before the world wakes up! Enter Lara Casey’s Write the Word Journals! I LOVE them! There is space to write the scripture of the day and journal your refection of the scripture or whatever you are lead to pen! I have the Refresh All Seasons Collection and cannot tell you how fun and inspiring it is to grab a journal of where ever my season finds me.
Well, if you know me, I am not a huge “actual” reader, unless I need it for reference. I am more of a listener to all things, so that is why I entitled this “What I am listening to lately” because I listen to books, video, podcast, ect…I am always learning and growing and I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t learning something.
I am juggling all the things right now and need more of me, so of course this book grabbed my attention. Ya’ll it is SUCH GOLD! I have learned to know how to say “no” in a kind and respectful way and give to myself what it needs balanced with serving my family, friends, and community! I have also streamlined my work, allowing space to create more content for YOU! Yay!
Lately, I have started to put my phone down. What I mean is, I find that I am setting my phone face down when I am with my children, with Shad, and with friends. It makes me look into eyes and be fully present. I have to admit, it was hard at first. I found myself grabbing for it for no particular reason. I have learned to love this practice. Crosby, our youngest, even inquired if Instagram was broken. Ouch. It was my escape when parenting, marriage, or life got hard. It was easy to go to my “happy place” when all along my happy place was right in front of me.
