If you are wondering how the name PeaceFull Living was created, it was a joint effort between myself and a dear friend. I asked her to help with the business name and she pointed me towards the word peaceful because the signature line in my email messages reads Peaceful Wishes.
There are thousands of businesses registered with the word Peaceful as the first word in the business. As I looked at the words, the word “full” stood out. I asked myself what it would be like to live a full and peaceful life? And so PeaceFull Living was born.
The more I thought about it, the more I realized how easily we fill our lives: with work, taking care of our homes, paying our bills, taking care of our family, getting exercise, spending time with friends, volunteering, and more. We fill, fill, fill our calendars to the point where every precious moment is scheduled. It’s no surprise that we are left feeling tired, overwhelmed and unfulfilled. It’s no surprise that so many people suffer from anxiety, insomnia, and stress.
Just like our physical body needs to be nourished and cared for with healthy nutrition, hydration, and exercise, our emotional and spiritual body needs to be nourished and cared for with quiet practices like meditation, yoga, journaling, and Pilates. Living a full life, or a PeaceFull life, has become my personal mission. I believe there is a need for quiet practices, and that these practices can help each of us restore a sense of well-being and connect us to our inner power and purpose. When we are well, when we feel powerful and purposeful, we are better able to manage stress. With stress being the number one factor in most chronic illnesses, reducing our response to stress allows us to live a healthier life.
Most people are unfamiliar with quiet practices like Yin Yoga, gentle yoga,Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra and meditation. Moreover, it has been my experience that people avoid these practices because they find them uncomfortable. It feels intimidating to start something new, and when you are all on your own, these practices can feel frustrating. A fidgeting body and racing mind are enough to turn the quiet into an agonizing experience.
What if I told you that a fidgeting body and a racing mind are part of the process? What if said that it’s perfectly normal to feel unsettled and uncomfortable when you try to get quiet?
The good news is that I’ve made these practices part of my life. My purpose for creating PeaceFull Living was to help more people learn to become comfortable in the quiet. I’m here to help you. I will guide you through your discomfort. I will answer your questions and help you find the practices and techniques that work best for you. I will help your body manage the fidgeting. I will give you clear and simple guidance to help soften your racing mind and let go of frustration.
Now is the perfect time to begin your journey into PeaceFull Living. Think of it like training for your first 5K, marathon, or triathlon. It won’t happen all at once, but it will happen, with patience and practice. Come practice with me.
