Retreat and Declutter Your Life

Retreat is a great way to declutter your mind and your life. Are you aligned with your purpose? Many of the retreat guests who come to us are in transition in their life. Many are feeling unhappy with their life but somewhat lost as how to shift; from what is to what they want and dream of.

Here are three tips to shift your life from overwhelm to inner peace and happiness.

1. Practice Yoga at least three times per week. Yoga is a great way to expand your mind, body, and spirit. It is also a good way to break up old patterns and habits and create new habits and patterns that serve you.

2. Meditation has been proven to shift your mind and create new thought patterns. Most of our retreat guests have a challenge slowing their mind down from the hectic pace of their life. The best way to slow the mind down is to practice breath awareness. As you observe your breath, just watch your thoughts. Become the witness and slowly you will notice your thoughts becoming more peaceful. Avoid trying to make your mind stop thinking. This creates resistance and struggle; the opposite of what you want. The key is to be consistent and persistent; your mind will give in.

3. Include something in your day that you love. If you can, take a walk in nature and allow yourself to slow down and welcome peace into your life. If you love dancing this is a great way to release stress. Listen to your inner urges they will guide you to peace.
