There are 3 words that come to mind when I daydream about the 40 Days of Flow
Connection Presence Miracles
The annual 40 Days of Flow is a reset. Designed to sweep out life clutter, lingering habits, feelings or blockages. The focus is on making a list of daily practices that you want to reignite in your life and commit to spending 1min to 1 hour on each practice everyday. It is not about trying to cram more things into your life, it is about flinging open the windows, throwing the things you no longer need to the wind (figuratively of course; do not throw your unwanted clothes in the street) and inviting in a commitment to taking action on the elements that make life glorious.
So the 40 Days of Flow is about focus. Flow itself comes when we focus on doing what we love in a manner that allows us to simply let go and let flow.
In preparation for June 1 I highly recommend taking a moment or two wrapped up in your own ritual of letting go of what is no longer needed. Perhaps some feelings that are holding you back, some negativity that has got you stuck, some habits that are weighing you down. Need some help with that?
Next you will want to choose the habits you need to reboot. I am choosing 7 core habits and staying open to new ones that come through.
What are the habits that you spend time “shoulding” your self about?
“I really should do yoga every morning” “I should get up an hour earlier everyday” “I should take my vitamins everyday” “I really should pick up my hoop each day” Actions you can take daily.
Also think about the times when you have felt the most authentic and alive in your body and mind. What practices helped these feelings?
Make a list.
Last year I had 7 habits I wanted to roll with.
- I will meditate daily. Exploring various practices.
- I will hydrate my cells with shitloads of water daily.
- I will hoop daily.
- I will create a daily positive mantra and say/sing/chant/scream/whisper it to myself morning, noon and night as well as anytime I am feeling a little off.
- I will write something, anything with my hands in my journal everyday.
- I will try one new thing everyday. Yikes!
- I will feed my body nutrient rich foods every day.
This year I will be using the Habit Clock app again and I am going to make my mornings powerful so miracles can unfold throughout the day.I am also going to put a time limit on everything so I condense the power habits into a morning time slot and let the magic filter through for the rest of the day.
It will look something like this…
- 7 minutes of mantras
- 7 minutes of yoga/breath work/meditation
- 7 minutes of hooping
- 7 minutes of high intensity intervals training
- 7 minutes of writing
- 7 minutes of organising
- 1L of water
Now it is your turn, try writing a list of positive habits you would like to reboot, power up or keep in your day. Simple but powerful.
From June 1 together we are going to commit to practicing our list everyday for 40 days and beyond.
June 1 is very soon. I didn’t want to give you too much time to think about it and come up with reasons why it might not be a good time for you (to feel amazing).
Set up your day for success.
Each morning it is vital to set up your desired feeling for the day. In the morning when you wake up take a moment to focus on how you want to feel for the day. As often as you can throughout the day come back to that intention.
Each day I will share a vlog on my YouTube channel
And if you want to share your progress and inspiration you can #40daysofflow on instagram or add it to the Hooplovers group. Invite your friends and family, we all need some good feels right now. Expect magic to happen.
