Carpe Diem, “Seize the Day!”
It’s a new year. And today is a new day. A perfect day to see life unfold, feel joy, hear nature, smell fresh air, and taste something new on your palate. Take 10 deep breaths and journal/write your intentions for today. Create your own mindful moment. Right here. Right now. Go!
Ever feel anxious, unsettled, or just off? Here is a powerful grounding practice using your written words. Close your eyes for a few moments. Describe on paper in detail:
Five things you see.
Four things you feel.
Three things you hear.
Two things you smell.
One thing you taste.
When finished, take ten slow deep breaths. Read what you wrote. Re-evaluate how you feel.

Just for Now, without asking how, let yourself sink into stillness.
Just for now, lay down the weight you so patiently bear upon your
shoulders. Feel the earth receive you, and the infinite expanse of the sky grow even
wider as your awareness reaches up to meet it. Just for now, allow a wave of breath to
enliven your experience. Breathe out whatever blocks you from the truth. Just for now,
be boundless, free, with awakened energy tingling in your hands and feet. Drink in the
possibility of being who and what you really are – so fully alive that the world looks
different, newly born and vibrant, just for now. ~ Danna Faulds

The time in between is the best time. It is a time to take in every moment, every gesture, every sight, sound, smell, and taste. It’s holiday time, it’s always. The time is now. Savor it. Pause and draw your awareness to the moment. Fully in it. Breathe in the life force. Live life now. Make your “dash” count.
