My Top Tool for creating balance, peace and clarity in your daily life
Have you been feeling chaotic? Overwhelmed? Anxious? Pulled in a million directions? If you have, then it is time to start your daily practice.
What is a daily practice?
A daily practice is something that you do every day to help find greater balance, clarity and peace of mind. It is a small amount of time that you take out every day just for you. This is you time! Much needed and very important. Some examples of a daily practice can include: meditation, yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, breathing exercises, visualisation exercises, stretching, being in nature or simply moving your body in a way that feels good.
Why is a daily practice important?
From my point of view a daily practice is not only important but vital for your mental, emotionally and physically wellbeing. We live in a time where we are constantly on the go, never taking a moment to stop and be. We live off caffeine to keep us going and alcohol to calm us down. This is not sustainable and there will be negative effects from not taking enough time out for you. These negative effects can be stress, anxiety, depression, overwhelm, irritation, emotional outbursts, emotional breakdowns, and physical illness (which can be a result from stress). It is not enough to do something once or twice a week, you must bring in a daily practice to keep you in balance.
What are the benefits of a daily practice?
Having a daily practice is like pressing reset on your life. It’s a space that you create for yourself everyday to release, reset and rebalance your mind, body and emotions. A daily practice will help you experience greater balance, perspective, clarity, peace and ultimately freedom. Your daily practice is the ultimate preventative medicine.
Who does a daily practice benefit?
If you are someone who takes the world on your shoulders, who feels everything deeply, who gets overwhelmed and concerned about the wellbeing of the people in your life and the planet, then a daily practice would greatly benefit you. The truth is, every single person would benefit from taking time out of their busy lives every day, but for the more sensitive souls, a daily practice becomes vital for your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical wellbeing. You can’t afford not to.
Where do you do your daily practice?
Find a space in your home where no one will disturb you. Create a mini sanctuary space just for you. Clear out this space so that you feel relaxed and at ease in it, or at the very least, clear out the area that you are sitting in. But don’t let a messy space be an excuse not to do it!
How do you do a daily practice?
There are many practices that you can do on a daily basis to create greater balance, clarity and peace of mind. I highly recommend that one of your daily practices be meditation. If you only have time for one thing, then start with that. Even better, include a practice that gets your body moving as well, such as yoga.
Decide how much time you are going to dedicate to your practice every day. I would suggest a very minimum of 20 minutes. Start small and think about building up from there. Find an amount of time that is manageable and that you can commit to. 10 minutes a day is better than no minutes.
Decide what time of day that you are able to dedicate to your daily practice. I highly recommend doing your daily practice in the morning and at the same time every day. This will help you to stick to it. Start your daily practice before you look at your phone or your computer. Once the day gets going it is very easy to let your daily practice slide. Doing your daily practice first thing in the morning will help you to prioritise it. You may need to wake up earlier in the morning to fit it in. Don’t worry, your daily practice will ultimately help you to feel more rested.
How to do a Daily Practice
Wake up your body
I personally like to do some yoga. You can stretch or dance. Move your body in whatever way feels good to you.

For the last few minutes, think about everything that you would like to welcome into your life.
how would you like to feel in your day?
How would you like to feel at work?
how would you like your relationships to be/feel?
How would you like to feel around your finances?
Make a list of how you would like your life to be and how you would like to feel. Look at this list every day. Feel the feelings of what it would be like if all of this were true. This helps to get you into alignment with how you would like your life to be.
