Dear Wellness Seekers,

Spanista Friday Wellness Tip To Cultivate Inner Peace is a heartfelt offering.  Right now with the issue of health and wellbeing top of mind due the emerging Ebola fear, it is human nature to feel concern. If you travel a great deal like I do wherein your main mode of transportation is airplanes you can not help but feel an added layer of pressure and stress from the news unfolding. I had the pleasure of seeing the Dalai Lama speak in the US on a couple of occasions. It changed how I see my life. This quote stuck with me and I want to share it with you.

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

Dalai Lama 

This easy Spanista Self Care Practice can offer an antidote with positive compounding effect over time if your stick with it. It delivers a Style of Peace that will calm your heart while improving your health and wellbeing into the winter months to come.
Spanista Inner Peace of Heart Tip:
Spend 30 minutes today doing something you really like to reduce stress without distraction – i.e., soak in a tub, get a massage, play with your dog, listen to your favorite music with your eyes closed, etc. This is something do alone. When you identify your choice of practice,  you will know especially if you feel a twinge of indulgence in your gut. That is perfect! Do indulge yourself in that. 
Ask yourself this question: Inner Peace – What does it mean to you? As you enjoy your Peace Time put the question in the back of your mind. No need to actively ponder and solve it. The idea is to float it – yes let it just gently roll around in your body. Imagine Peace flowing through your blood stream – through every part of your body. Can you feel the reduction of tension and stress. Shoulders relaxing? Shake the tension out of your neck and limbs – your body will just respond and want to do this – let it all flow out of your body. Replace it with the word Peace.
There is a warmth that replaces the tension – you will know it when your body responds.
For me, I find I inhale and exhale serenity and know that where ever I go, I will carry it with me.
Peace is as peace does –  My life is a Peace of Heart. I quietly and intentionally use my breath to saturate my mind, heart, and perspective with peace.
Because my mind is focused on peace, I encounter it in all types of situations. Peace enters the room just before I enter and lingers behind me when I depart. All that I do is infused with peace—my work, my interactions with others, and my time alone.
Contributing to Your Journey To Joy is the little things you do for yourself everyday. This Spansita Inner Peace of Heart Practice can help you. You simply need a bit of self awareness and the willingness to put yourself first ESPECIALLY on Friday.
My Spansita life lesson to share: Do not sacrifice your need to take time to check in with your emotional wellness and gently guide it. It will surface in less attractive ways if you suppress it. Be proactive to check in with your Peace of Heart on Friday’s after  along work week – to relieve the stress one builds up and reboot the tone of your heart, body and mind to one of calmness and peace.
