Mindful Monday: Spring Mindfulness Practice

Happy first day of April, dear mindful ones!

The Spring Equinox has come and gone. As the days are longer and warmer, we tend to get even more busy and active. We are naturally drawn to spending more and more time outdoors.

“Sorrow prepares you for joy”
-Rumi

As the seasons change, so too should our self-care practices, maintaining harmony with Mother Nature. We literally watch as nature and the world around us comes to life!

Use this opportunity to acknowledge your own journey. This is the perfect time to release what no longer serves you and take the first steps towards your goals.

This time of year is all about new beginnings and rebirth. Ask yourself: “How do I want to bloom? What will help me blossom?”  What seeds of intention will you plant to allow for your growth, and what conditions will help nurture this growth?

Of course the image of the flower makes sense for spring. But we often forget that the flower isn’t just a blossom. It’s made of many parts. It’s created by deep roots that have been nurtured in soil and dirt. Without the mess, the flower could not exist.

April is about beauty and looking forward, but it’s also about acknowledging the “dirt” that has allowed for your growth. This includes your pain, sorrow, and heartbreak. These experiences form the base of your transformation: they’re the moments that offer the most growth.

Have a great week, my friends!
