Time to Just Be. can get busy sometimes. With work and other commitments, we find ourselves running on overdrive, feeling drained both physically and mentally. We forget to slow down and just breathe. To take the time for ourselves to recharge, reflect, reconnect, play and enjoy Spring.

When we are constantly in action, it's easy to forget to check in with how we feel. It is easy to get caught up in the idea that there are things we have to do. But really, if we decided to take a break, what is the worst thing that can happen? 

There is great value in taking time for ourselves. Making time to recharge and reflect allows us to become strong and focused. When we do return to work or a busy schedule, we feel renewed and our strongest, most grounded selves. We make better decisions.

Society often undervalues the importance and benefit of spending time alone. What I believe is that time alone can be an incredibly positive and enlightening experience. Of course it is important to spend time and share our experiences with people who we connect with- deep and supportive relationships are very soul satisfying. But who says we can't enjoy some time in solitude? Being alone without social and technological distractions gives us the space to think and connect with our truest selves.

"We have the power, within a single day, to transform our lives."
In one day, we have the ability to recenter, refocus and become grounded, despite what the days before looked liked. 
I am a firm believer in planning and creating goals for ourselves, but there is also a certain magic found in allowing the day to unfold. In letting go and being spontaneous. In allowing opportunities to unfold. In being open to what the moment has to offer us.
