Soul Healing

Today was a beautiful day. Not because I did something crazy but because I didn’t really do much of anything. That’s what made it so beautiful and captivating! For the first time in 3 months, my husband and I didn’t have commitments, a schedule to keep or really much of a plan at all. I was able to wake up at my own time and pace. A morning coffee and my reading happened before I truly left my bed and my sweet sick husband took a nap shortly after waking up this morning. These days have been few and far between with us opening our yoga studio, running another business and me being in school. Today was definitely welcome and refreshing! The funny thing was, it kind of happened by accident. We had originally thought about snowboarding today up at the family cabin, but wanted to play it by ear. There wasn’t enough snow! Normally, we would have been devastated and even though we were, I feel like it was only slightly. It was like nature knew we needed this day. I liked the idea of holing up in our apartment, shutting our phones off and enjoying the silence together, and we did. We laughed, napped, worked out, made delicious food, caught up on our shows, talked about which country we wanted to visit this year and simply enjoyed whatever came next. Today, I feel like our souls were healed. I love that because being healthy isn’t just about how you look on the outside, it is so much more. Having sound health, starts from within your body; from the food you eat, and the thoughts you think. My mind needed rest today more than my body needed to be pushed to its physical limits.

Be present and aware of what your body needs from you, on every level.
