It has involved:
- getting in touch with my inner self,
- working towards acceptance of my circumstances and myself,
- increasing my awareness of the little things
- and living with intention.
I have a selection of tools which help me work towards a sense of peace; tarot, self check ins, art journalling, creating, writing etc. and I have a few things I aim to do at least once a week to help as well; creating, checking in with myself, resting, going outside and seeing people who aren’t my carers.
I have been following the moon cycles and trying to use the new and full moons to prompt my self reflection.
My life has changed significantly in the past 12 months and these changes have caused some stress but I think they have helped me move towards a more peaceful life. retirement and moving house have both made my everyday existence so much easier, considerably less exhausting and freed up my mental energy.
