What helps create balance in your life? A sense of grounding and center for you personally?
What do you love doing with friends or family that centers you? An example might be preparing a meal and sitting down and eating together. I have found that preparing food with friends/family with my HANDS is very grounding for me. Which is the perfect segue for the next question…
What foods ground you? For me, I always eat a large green salad (kale, spinach, romaine) everyday as I have found that “green” foods balance my brain and my mood. And who knew that spinach and or romaine lettuce taste great in USANA Nutrimeal shakes?! Look out for Live Well “Green Food” recipes coming soon.
What places ground you? Personally, as soon I enter a bookstore, like The Tattered Cover, I feel centered, grounded and “at home.” Palm trees and beaches also ground me immediately.
What personal “rituals” center you? Lighting candles at night, playing a personally designed “iTunes playlist,” meditating or just sitting in silence a couple of times a day (am and pm) can all be extremely centering.
What TWO other things ground you personally? Often, what grounds us personally are the simplest things that are unique to us (laying on the floor grounds me immediately).
Discover the many things that center you and incorporate at least one thing into your daily life. Know yourself and take charge of your life. Every day is your own, create life… make each day a yummy, precious day.
