Time to retreatThe Daily Exhale: Time To Retreat

I was on my yearly business mastermind retreat this weekend. I cannot tell you how important taking time out of the day to day routine is in being able to think and plan for my life. If I don't have a plan, then I become part of someone else's plan!

Taking time to retreat gives me clarity and focus that I just cannot get when daily life is rushing on around me...too many distractions keep me from really digging deep and allowing the time to dream!  

Do you think it is time for you to give yourself permission to take time to retreat and dream? Time to release the past, dream of the future and learn to breathe in the NOW!  If you are woman who is ready to say yes to yourself, your dreams and your life then check out my upcoming Women's retreat March 30 to April 2 2017 at White Point Beach Resort. www.CampExhale.com

Be Like a CatTake a NapThe Daily Exhale: Be Like A Cat...Take A Nap

Todays daily exhale is brought to you by Dusty the cat...who as most good cats will agree, loves to nap.  I was getting lots of work done in my office when I was interupted by a soft rumbling noise.  Take a moment to listen I realized it was the car snoring...yes snoring!  So what else can I do then get out my phone to record it hehe.  That lead to todays daily exhale and my quick little power nap!

Don't forget to take the time to BREATHE today!  xox Kim

Take a Beauty BreakThe Daily Exhale: Take a Beauty Break Today

I am sharing my break time with you as I breathe in the sea air of the Northumberland Straight before a clients appointment. Take the time today, even if it is only a couple minutes to take in the beauty of nature, even if it is just a picture on your computer, a memory of a beautiful place or watching this video and the beautiful sights of the straight in winter.

It is important to give you mind and body those few minutes to reconnect with the inner you, to breathe fully and release the stress and anxiety that can be building up inside.

Take the time to BREATHE! You deserve the break!!

Mindfulness while eating

How many of you reading this rush through your day, skipping meals or woofing down your food in between your 'to do list' doing?  

Today's daily exhale is about taking a few moments during your eating to be fully present to the experience of eating.  To acknowledge the food you are eating, taking a moment to be grateful and pay attention to your body eating.  Lunch time is a great time for some mindfulness while eating - turn off the distractions, take a breath in and long breath out and be grateful for what you have and what you are about to eat.  

Exhale all that stress around you before you eat and stay for a few minutes in the state of gratitude!

Take time to BREATHE today!

 

Chill out while driving 1The Daily Exhale: Chill Out While Driving

Being in the car is a great opportunity to take a few extra breaths and calm down. Pay attention to what you are listening to and if you need some chill out time put some nice calm music on and do some breathing.

if you are sayiing 'yeah right Kim, the kids are in the car and all heck is breaking lose' then you need to listen to this more than anyone. GET KIDS TO PLAY ALONG! That is right you heard me...get the kids to play with their breath too, make it fun, make it silly. 3 breaths in...4 breaths out...fast, fast, slow! instead of duck, duck goose hahaha!

The point is that you can take the time to mindfully breathe no matter where you are and the car is a great place to do that!

Keep Breathing Folks!! xox Kim
