With everything that life has thrown our way lately, many of us are in need of some wisdom and refreshment.
Join host Barb Roose on this episode of Better Together Facebook Live, for an honest conversation with guest, Susan Seay, on how to refocus our lives on what truly matters when we get out of alignment.
Practical Ways to Reclaim Center
1. Listen to your body.
Are you feeling tired and overwhelmed? Has your personality or appetite changed? Do you just feel like isolating yourself from others instead of being in community? Susan encourages us to take the time to listen to what our body is telling us in order to see what areas have fallen out of alignment.
2. Alignment looks like being still.
Susan reminds us that being still is more than just not moving our bodies, but choosing to relinquish our minds, emotions, and will by resting in God.
3. Focus on the right things!
It’s easy to get overwhelmed when we are focusing on our never ending to-do lists. Susan encourages us to reign our thoughts in and focus on what is good, true, honorable and life-giving.
4. Determine your 3 core values
Susan describes core values as our guiding systems that help us to make decisions for ourselves and our families. What areas are most important to you? Choose your 3 core values together and make sure everyone in the household knows them. When you feel like you are getting out of alignment, review your core values and assess where you may be getting off track.
