Checking in and focusing on the beauty around me is one of my low key, completely free self care activities. If I’m feeling tired or noticing that I’m very ‘in my head’ I bring my attention back out to the world around me. I often use flowers as a focal point – what flowers can I see in my neighbourhood that completely capture my eyes and lift up my heart? The more I set out to notice, the more I see. I then shift into feelings of awe, appreciation and wonder. I notice myself slowing down. I feel more abundant and expansive.
Here’s your invitation to notice something beautiful this week.
Flowers not your thing? Try looking for striking shadows, or amazing angles and lines in the urban environment, or colourful tiles, or maybe the changing colours in the sky. I find having just one thing I’m looking for keeps the project feeling more fun and do-able.
To create a permanent record of your noticings try making an album on your facebook page or in your phone and saving photos into that.
Or print your photos old school style, and make a huge artwork of them for your wall.
A simple creative recharge project that is free and you can do anywhere.
Let me know how you go!
