"Simplicity is a state of mind." ~ Charles Wagner How do you prioritize your decisions with respect to simplifying your living spaces, your life activities, your financial choices and how you spend your time? Do you take time to plan out your daily, weekly and monthly basic tasks such as grocery and meal preparation? Regardless of the events around you and how you currently respond to your emotions in the moment, you can influence your state of mind. Simplicity is not always easy to attain in our complex lifestyles and it means different things to different people. But when you take the time to pay attention and start managing your variety of decisions with a different focus, it will likely have a direct effect on reducing your stress levels. When you choose to take time to focus on natures beautiful patterns all around and spend time on the things that matter, you will find more beauty and less chaos. Join us as we explore ways to build a sustainable habit of practicing simplicity.
Mindful Space to Pause(tm)
Friday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Mindful Space to Pause(tm) focuses on savoring moments and balancing daily busy-ness. The show brings together a powerful gift of practicing, discovering time, space and focus to be present. It is like a quick retreat from wherever you are and whatever you are doing. We explore common words, language and how images feel like an oasis of calm when you pause and take a closer look. Awaken to the possibilities when you pay attention, breathe, pause, clearly listen to your own internal GPS system and set your intentions to align your inner thoughts and your word choices with your energetic frequency. Being present with every moment might seem as elusive as chasing the clock to find extra time within an already overcommitted 24-hour schedule. Once thought seeds have been planted and have taken root in your daily habit patterns, you can pause with a sense of discovery, curiosity and experience moments to play, to be thankful, to reflect and be wonder-filled in awe.
d Lee is an author, talk show host and businesswoman infusing her life with positivity. From a very early age, she spent time in her father’s garden where she soaked up the positive beats of this busy environment. She learned the importance of systems, how to explore present moments with all of her senses, embrace inspiring possibilities, and take empowered action with an “I can do this” choice. This perspective has given her greater resilience, creativity, and joy in her life.
As an avid photographer, d Lee has spent years and countless hours walking the streets of her community capturing moments of life and time through her lens. Through this process, and through an immersion in Reiki, she naturally began living with more presence and awareness. Over time she recognized the value of being able to immerse herself in present moment awareness.
d Lee is authoring a series of mindful practice journals that help build habits of being present. She is populating the books with beautiful images from her photography collection, inspiring quotes on the focused topics and coloring pages to unleash your own colorful creativity. Learn how to embrace a disciplined practice focus such as pausing and taking time to appreciate visual gifts from nature. As the habit becomes part of each day, it will transform your life. Be wherever you are, doing whatever you are doing and know each pause you take brings with it many benefits.
