Back to Basics

Back to Basics with Sarah Larkin

As I am writing and producing “Fall in Love with Yourself in 2021”, I am finding myself pulled to go back to basics. Many of us are struggling with the normal ins and outs of daily life…add in a pandemic, and for a lot of us we are left feeling mightily out of control 🙁

When we feel out of control, our anxiety skyrockets. Suddenly, the way we’ve always done things is either no longer available, we’ve gotten out of the habit or isn’t working for us in the same way it once did.

Unfortunately, things tend to continue in the direction the are already heading unless we consciously decide to change course. Many of us desperately want change, but we are unwilling to go through the short term hard of changing direction. It’s not our faults. There is a greater force at play here. It is the natural way of the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible!

I find the simple act of awareness and understanding the process of change is enough to remove some of the power fear of change has over us. So, by acknowledging that discomfort is the price of admission for growth, it no longer has such a strong hold on us and we are able to more freely go in the direction that is in the best interest of our highest selves.

So, we are going back to basics. We are focusing on looking at our daily habits and how they have led to where we are now. Most of the time, my clients come to me because they don’t like where they are in their mind, body or spirit. Now is the time to slow down and assess. Do we like the trajectory we are on? If no, let’s lovingly start by making sure we are creating a solid foundation for us to be able to build our new reality.

We start by looking at our health habits.

-Do we get enough sleep?

-Drink enough water?

-Fuel our body so we have sustained energy throughout the day?

-Move our body?

-Say kind things to ourselves everyday?

-Have a community that supports who we want to be and how we want to live?

Have routines in place that create time and space for hobbies, spirituality and personal development?

How do we do this? We shift our awareness and our intention to slowing down our current momentum of anxiety, inconsistency and habits that don’t serve us. We accept that as our current reality and focus on pushing the pause button to really assess. From there, we can start layering in habits that will lead to healthy mind, body and spirit. We practice these new habits and watch as they transform our lives and gain momentum in ways we never thought possible.

This is what Self Love looks like, my friends.

To be truly able to love yourself, you have to be able to look at yourself with curiosity and compassion. From that place, you can build a life that serves you and ditch the life that feels like you’re serving it…

Let’s do it together. Sign up

And we will get back to basics!
