15 Tools for a Happier and More Connected You

What elements of the creative feminine do you need to play with (listening to your body, honoring your emotions, feeling what you feel)? The list below are tips that are helpful for men and women, because we all have a feminine side.

Here are some things I do to tune in:
 
1. Journal writing and affirmations: I am flawed and fabulous (for self-acceptance)

2. Develop my inner coach – write a letter from my 80 year old self to me now

3. Fire the Inner Critic and let negativity be overridden by loving messages from Inner Coach

4. Time alone, quiet time in nature, more attunement to inner self

5. Get some soothing rest, nap, gentle music, breathing and centering, find my core again

6.  Dance and sing, celebrate life with movement and song

7. Dialogue with my Wise Inner Self:  when I’m in a quandary, over a decision

8. Self-love – practise compassion, loving kindness, forgiveness for mistakes (my own & others)

9. Soothe the frightened child in me by rocking my fear and anger

10. Patience as a practice – move at the slower rate of my body than my overactive mind

11. Whole body healthy eating: happy healthy whole

12. Increase intuition and body guidance, listen to the body

13. Wean myself from my addiction to adrenaline rush, speed demon - the art of slowing down

14. Inner peace – finding a daily practice I can live with

15. Make a written vow to Self: commitment to conscious self care
