The benefits of bare feet and bare soil…

🪴 Wednesday Wellness Tip!

Better than caffeine…
Bare feet and bare soil
Time outside in the sun
Reconnecting with the earth
is good for the soul

🌍Our planet holds an incredible amount of energy. Spending time barefoot on the earth is a grounding technique I use to settle anxious energy or elevate a depressed mood.

✨ There are many possible health benefits of reconnecting with nature, including but not limited to….

-reduced stress and anxiety
-relief from chronic pain
-improved sleep
-better regulated nervous and endocrine systems
-enhanced mental focus
-strengthened immune system
-heightened creativity
-lighter and/or elevated mood
relaxation and calm
-more balanced energy levels

Bare feet and bare soil are good for the soul. @nursehealingadvocate

☀️ I love to go outside everyday for at least 20-30 minutes. After I go for a jog or a bike ride, I take off my shoes and socks. I choose to walk barefoot as I water the plants in my garden.

I spend time in awareness of the beauty around me, using all my senses to breathe it in. I am able to set aside my worries and focus on my connection to the earth and to God.

🥰 I use this outside time to let go of the stories in my head, to connect to the present moment, and focus on gratitude for the beauty around me. I thank God for the the gift it is to live on this beautiful earth.

Warmly,
Ruth Renee RN

Resilience, not perfection…

In our society, I often hear the saying “progress, not perfection.” But these words do not resonate for me.

Being a recovering perfectionist, I often see progress as needing to be only forward moving.

To me, “progress” says mistakes are okay as along as they don’t set me back, as long as I remain in forward motion.

However, when I hear the word “resilience,” I think of being brave and getting back up every time I fall.

I think of how it’s okay to take 1 step forward and 3 steps back.

To me, resilience says it doesn’t matter how far or fast I go. The only thing that matters is that I never give up.

“Resilience, not perfection.”

Meditate upon these words. Be aware of how you receive them. Allow grace into your heart and soul.

—-

Growth is messy. Action over perfection is messy. Resilience not perfection is messy and imperfect, and that’s okay. It’s actually quite a beautiful thing.

To my reader, where has focusing on perfect progress held you back? Where can you give yourself permission to be imperfect and resilient?

If you’re a perfectionist interested in growing your resilience, please email me at nursehealingadvocate@gmail.com. I would LOVE to coach you!
