“We tend to think of nourishment only as what we what we take in through our mouths, but what we consume with our eyes, our ears, our noses, our bodies are also food. The conversations going on around us and those we participate in are also food. Are we consuming and creating the kind of food that is healthy for us and help us grow?”

Thich Nhat Hanh

In this day and age of social media, gadgets and mobile phones, as well as a global pandemic that has significantly altered people’s sense of well-being and connection with themselves, we have become increasingly disconnected from our bodies and live much more from overactive minds.

Haven’t we all been there – scrolling mindlessly and fixating on our screens so much that we completely lose track of time. So many of us are opting for the instant gratification of connecting through our phones and whilst that’s easy, it plays a monumental role in the ever increasing detriment to our mental, emotional and physical health as this recurrent behaviour causes us to energetically disconnect from our physical bodies and hearts.

What humans need is to connect – to put the gadgets down and connect to our breath, our bodies, through our hearts, touch, actual person to person connection to replenish and nourish ourselves. Transformative shifts can only happen once someone is back home in their body and this is possible when one is able to feel, be present and breathe.

That is why I’d like to share my 3 pillars with you to guide you back into your body and to begin really ‘being’ with all that lies there. The 3 pillars I share here are simple but not necessarily easy. It will take dedication and commitment to yourself and your well-being for you to be able to see the results of these changes.

The key for us to reconnect and nurture ourselves is to first be aware that there is a need for us to come back to ourselves. Once we can commit to slowing down, creating time and space to tune into what we really want and honouring that desire, we can then turn our attention to actually taking small steps to changing our daily routines to allow us to nourish ourselves as we deserve.

If you feel called to reconnect to your authentic self, and re-create rejuvenation and a fresh sense of purpose and joy in your life, I invite you to join me in The Homecoming Process, an 8 week programme that I created to guide you to come home to yourself on a holistic level, across mind, body and soul.
