It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

10 Ways To Stay Grounded

Change is in the air… On a societal level, on a natural level, and — based on what I’ve been hearing from my students and community — on a personal level as well. 

The “nothing is as it was before” feeling we’ve been dealing with for what seems like a lifetime has collided with the natural rhythms of life and the Universe. In the northern hemisphere, we’re well into the fall season, a time full of transformation. Kids are back to school in some way, shape or form (hugs and blessings on parents and teachers as you navigate the ever-changing landscape of education!). And even though we’re developing creative ways to celebrate, holidays are upon us. 

During this period, it’s essential to maintain your equilibrium. The earth is turning, but you can plant your feet firmly and enjoy the ride! 

To help you reconnect with yourself and the world around you, here are 10 ways to stay grounded. 

Choose one to put into practice today: 

  • Go for a walk and look at your surroundings while holding a sense of gratitude. Whether you’re in a secluded forest or a busy urban street, immerse yourself in the environment you find yourself in today. Take in the sights, sounds, smells, and textures. Challenge yourself to notice one new thing each day — a mural on a building, an unusual tree, a birdsong you haven’t heard before. Give thanks for it all.


  • Pay attention to your breathing. Count in 4 and count out 5 for 10 mins. ( set egg timer- you can do this sitting down or lying down). Peace begins with your breath. If you have a meditation or yoga practice, you know the importance of breathing! But you don’t need to be a yogi to experience the benefits of conscious, mindful inhales and exhales. When we become anxious or stressed, we take shallow, quick breaths. Research shows we can almost immediately lower our stress levels by slowing our breathing for just a few minutes.
