I am a little late posting this but I wanted to let ya know that I did finish the challenge! I came down with a nasty cold/cough on Tuesday so I have been laying low this week. There might not be much to post in the food department come Monday but we will see how I’m feeling on that front!
Rewild Your Life Week Challenge Day 7
” For today’s activity find a piece of cloth to use as a blindfold. Go to a quiet natural space and make yourself comfortable. Blindfold yourself and begin to let go of your need for vision- which is probably your strongest sense. Open your ears and tune in. Listen to what the natural world has to say. “
Ok – So…I must admit…I didn’t blindfold myself as I didn’t want to scare my neighbours lol but I did just sit outside and close my eyes. It was peaceful. To be honest…I usually find ways to fit something like this in my days.I feel so much better for it.
I love getting outside with my Lola gal.
If you are trying to find ways to disconnect from social media and lower your stress levels or just looking to change up your routine a little bit I definitely recommend checking out the 7 day free challenge from We Are Wildness. Get outside and have fun!
” Today’s challenge is simple. Find a place that allows for a view of the whole sky… the more the better. Lay a blanket down. Put on some sunglasses if it’s really bright and sunny. Lie on your back and look up at the sky. Watch the clouds or the clear blue sky. Try to spot any flying creatures. Look at the tree tops if there are any around you and imagine what it would be like to be up there. Do this for at least 30 minutes today. “
I felt like a kid again 🙂 My buddy Lola was with me. It was nice to get outside for 30 minutes and just lay down and let the stress leave my body. I definitely have to continue to incorporate sky watching into my days!
I’m a little sad that the last day of the challenge is tomorrow but definitely thinking of trying the paid for 30 day challenge.
Beautiful Lake Huron. Isn’t she something? We have been close since I was just a baby. I am never away from her for too long and so glad I have family that live so close! To be by the water is so soothing it always brings my nerves right down to ground zero. I always leave feeling better than I felt before.
I sat under this beautiful tree for over 30 minutes. I honestly do this almost daily as I find it quite cathartic and calming. Trees have wisdom and mega healing powers. And best thing of all? It’s free to do.
When I am feeling anxious, anxiety, or getting that urge to binge eat or eat foods that probably won’t make me feel my best – I simply take some deep breaths and remind myself how great I feel after spending some time outside and usually it really does the trick! Try it out!
Sit outside in silence, observe your surroundings, try not to make yourself seen or known.
I sat under our beautiful old black walnut tree and enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. I enjoyed the birds coming and going and the squirrels tending to their walnuts.
Losing weight, getting healthy, getting fit – is so much more than just nutrition and working out. That is a huge part of it yes…but so is balancing and healing your emotions, feeding your soul and being well mentally. I believe the more one can get outside and enjoy the peacefulness of it all, the better off we will be on our healing journeys.
