A Positive Experience

slice of life

I have learned a few things over the last month. The past month has been such a positive experience for me in many ways. This is my first time participating in the Slice of Life Challenge and I enjoyed every minute!

Here is what I have learned:

Take time to do something you enjoy…I started doing yoga (not just this month, but started in January). It has been so relaxing and calming. Yoga is such a great stress reliever! I also began running through an app called “Couch 2 5 K” at the first of this month. Another great way to help me not only physically, but emotionally too. Take time for yourself! It may not be yoga or running, but something you enjoy whether it is 30 minutes or an hour. It is well worth it!

Take time to observe…Being aware of your surroundings makes you notice things you might not notice otherwise. Blogging daily has helped me to stop and take the time to enjoy the world around me.  My observations (after taking the time to notice) sparked many of my ideas for my posts.

Take time to write…I write at school with my kindergarten writers daily, but never really took the time to write outside of school. Over the last month, I did not always have my writer’s notebook so I used post-it notes, the note app on my iPhone, or just jotted down my thoughts on a piece of paper. I lived more like a writer this month and it has made me a more confident writer! Thank you Two Writing Teachers (and Lynne for encouraging to do the SOL challenge)!

Take the time to breathe…Life gets so busy. Things get hectic. Always remember to BREATHE! Slow down and take a deep breath. It all works out in the end!

    Good advice, Shelly. I’m glad you were part of the writing community this month. That Lynne! She surely is the pied piper of writing, isn’t she?
