Nourish Your Spirit With These 5-A-Day Habits

nourish your spirit

There has been a massive campaign all over the media to promote the eating of 5 fruits and veg a day to maintain a healthy body. That’s great, everyone wants their body to stay healthy and everyone knows how to create a healthy body. What about our Spirit? What about the things you need to do to nourish your spirit?

Looking after the body is incredibly important but there is also a 5-a-day rule for keeping your spirits high.

Nourish your spirit with meditation or prayer

Some would say that meditation and prayer are two different things but I say that both those actions can create the same result. What do we do during prayer or meditation? We create thoughts, listen to ourselves, initiate a conversation with God, work on our self development. Either way, whatever your preferred choice of method, meditating or praying every day will create a balance within the self.

Nourish your spirit with smiles

A smile goes such a long way. Give a smile to a stranger. Or, if you’re not feeling confident enough about smiling at strangers, smile more with the people around you. Smile and initiate a conversation with someone at work that you’ve never met before, you will be amazed at the reaction you will get! A smile creates warmth and love in your surrounding environment.

Nourish your spirit with laughter

One of my links you will see on the right links to a site about “Laughter Yoga!” Laughter is such a beneficial thing for the mind and body alike. It’s a release but also it supplements greater energy and zeal. Laugh as much as you can during your day, tell others a joke and make them laugh. Laughter is contagious! Also check out the “Motivational Humour” blog for further information on employing more humour and laughter in your daily life.

Nourish your spirit through giving

What you require for yourself, give to another. If you want happiness, give happiness to another. If you want peace, give peace to another, if you want understanding, give understanding to another. The more you give the more you will receive. The giving must be without expectation and must also be a humble and genuine gesture out of love or compassion for the people around you.

Nourish your spirit with Gratitude

Appreciate all that have and all that you are. We, as human beings, have a wonderful gift. A gift to experience anything that we choose. If you are blessed with abundance, then appreciate all that you have. Supplication closes the door to abundance whereas appreciation creates even more abundance.

So remember to meditate, smile, laugh, give and appreciate throughout your day to create a powerful and uplifting experience for yourself every single day.

    I have experienced wonderful relief from regular relaxation/meditation. So much so, that I have now developed a program that runs on the computer to help create the space for a short relaxation break while in the workplace, and includes simple yoga stretches.
