All week, I am offering quick ways to help you get to your CALM state.  The quickest path to CALM for you might be different than the quickest path to CALM for your sister or maybe for me.  But tools for CALM are primary, helping you shift your mind and metabolism to a more restful state that will feed your health.  And therefore your relationships.  And therefore your success in life.  Now, if you prefer to be excited all the time, that’s a different personality, and you are burning out your adrenal glands.  This is not healthy.

So today, I’m recommending three forms of indoor visuals that will remind you of and take you to CALM.  These apply in the home and also in the office, if you have a separate office you go to.

  1. Images.  Paintings, prints, sculptures, framed photographs, silk flower arrangements:  these are familiar decor items.  As you look at each item on your walls or coffee table, or pedestals, do you feel calmed by each of them?  For example, as in the photo above, we have a deeply serene scene of the ocean, looking out from a beach, where a person is meditating.  For more CALM, consider switching out artworks that are not calming for new ones that are.  Have you ever seen a calendar that had a different inspiring image for each month?  These are plentiful in the Fall, but they also are available throughout the year.  These are inexpensive and offer themes of gardens, garden paths/gates, skies, mountains, artworks, Zen gardens…the array is endless.  And if you fall in love with a monthly image, you can always take it off the calendar and get it framed.  I did that with an image of a garden gate.
  2. Signs.  From post-it notes to notebook pages with favorite quotes, to well-designed slogan art, this is your chance to keep restating something that re-inspires you to return to your CALM.  Leave yourself informal notes, stuck to your grooming mirror (morning inspiration) and above your pillow (night-time inspiration).  Little notes are great on your car’s dashboard, also.  The calligraphy artwork piece, below, lives on my therapy office wall.  It reminds me and everyone that we *are* on our best path, right now.  Very calming.  Do you have signs up already, that you find inspiring and calming? 2021 LifePath poster by Carolyn
  3. Mugs.  The humble mug can be the greatest carrier of a message we need to see over and over again.  While we hold the mug with our favorite beverage, we see the design and any message, many times.  So, what if your mug displayed a calming message?  Here is one, telling us we need not worry.  What a calming message.  Look for more message mugs that are meaningful and calming to you!

Did you notice your body relaxing and calming as you went over this list?  Read my posts each day this month, and be rested, revitalized and amazed!  And that’s you, being more and more Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!
