‘I want to continue being crazy, living my life the way I dream it and not the way other people want it to be. ‘
In today’s world of busyness and distraction, where society even places a value on how busy we are. Have you ever had the crazy thought, what it might be like to have a day where you did only what you wanted, no distractions, just Be. Is that thought a little scary, have you worked and lived by timetables and schedules, quotas and agendas all your life!
Why experience a Be in sync day
Its been proven scientifically that your heart is your most amazing muscle and your resting heart rate is vital to reducing anxiety and upregulating your immune response, keeping you focused and your creative mind vital.
Taking a Be in sync day is good for the heart
Your heart beats about 100,000 times a day that equates to 60 to 100 beats per minute. Heart disease is still the number one killer for both men and women. Stimulated all the time with mental stress. Overloaded workloads, these common lifestyle norms, increase our heart rate and cause subtle damage in the body. It’s so subtle you don’t even recognise it, because it becomes your norm for you.
A Be in sync day goes against the norm. Giving you a restful joyful day, that encourages the heart rate to be at its normal resting rate.
It’s time to change societal attitudes about long working days, taking your work home and never feeling fully rested.
We can make this crazy concept of living our dreams just like Paulo! Just a little preparation perhaps for mums, with help from partners, dads, grandparents or friends.
What does a Be in sync day look like
A be in sync day can be anything you want it to be, as long as it is slow and restful. You decide the day it will be, and arrange for the kids to be picked up and looked after.
Your first task is to hand everything over to others, so you can be totally free for the day.
Wake up and decide whether to lie in bed longer, read a book, listen to meditation music, perhaps have a late breakfast.
This is your day and it’s a slow day.
Being in sync with what the body needs.
Sit quietly, what are you being called to do? Follow your instinct and you may find yourself thinking about some of the dreamiest things to do. Give yourself permission to claim your space to feel and to explore and experience. Allow the body to unwind and the mind to feel rested.
It’s time to do something different with our self-care, not just go to the gym, yoga or sport. Start the busy year planning how you can also take time out be with you and rest. You deserve it.
Give it a go and let me know how you felt at the end of that day.
