Challenge Myself: Day #14 Allow Yourself Peace and Tranquility

Today is Day #14 of our Nar Anon Group Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today is Retreat within to clear your mind.

The book says,

Plan a little time off just for yourself to do some inner reflection. The amount of time is not as important as getting the respite that you need. Make your time away a priority. It's a small amount of time just for you to clear your head, gather your energy, and get perspective.

Retreat to someplace peaceful where you can relax and have a break from the responsibilities of work and family. Don't know of any great retreat places?

Take your favorite book and head to the beach. If there's no ocean in your backyard, find a shady bank along the edge of a lake, creek, river or a pond- someplace where the earth and the water meet.

Sink into your beach chair, tune into the sounds of nature, open your book, and lose yourself in the story. Or, just sit back, close your eyes, and let your mind wander. You don't have to do anything while on your retreat but to make a space for tranquility and joy to fill you.

Even if it it just for one day, or just for today  it is okay to allow ourselves the space and the time for peace and tranquility away from all of this. We have to take time for ourselves because if not we are too entangled in the web of addiction to even breath. I found a good link to read,

Just For Today: I will allow myself peace and tranquility.
