Weekly Practice No. 19
Every week we profile one of the “Reflect to Create! “ practices from my book, they are chosen at random from a jar on my desk. My invitation is for you to try it out if it speaks to you in some way.
This week we are profiling Practice 4: Setting Your Internal Thermometer (from page 53 of my book).
Practice 4 is part of The Prelude to the “Reflect to Create!” dance. The Prelude invites us to pause and rest. I have chosen this practice this week as I know I feel full and need some downtime – and happily I am off to Sardinia for a week for some Mum and Daughter time!
Practice 3 is a way of supporting yourself by checking in with your energy, enthusiasm and tiredness levels, and to take action accordingly. I use this practice regularly. I have made a commitment to myself that I will step back and certainly not make important decisions if I notice that my energy has dropped to below 80% at any point during the day.
This Practice invites you to:
- Start by visualizing your own thermometer or temperature gauge inside of you.
- Decide on the optimum temperature for you where you are working in flow or at your best.
- At intervals during the day scan your heart, mind, body and soul to see if you need to pause due to overheating, the start of feeling a little out of control, a confusion or tiredness.
Have a go!
Start with small steps.
Reflect on what you are noticing.
Please do share your stories so we can all learn together.
