A few weeks ago, we launched our newest Labels of Freedom collection- Make All Things New. Several of the items had special sayings printed on the clothing or on the straps. We want these sayings to be more than a fun catchphrase. We want these sayings to be a mantra for women everywhere to believe in.
One of our hoodies says: "Restart. Renew. Refresh." This is a reminder that we always have ability to start new. You don’t have to wait for a new week, a new month or even a new year to start fresh. Maybe you woke up this morning with a plan to be productive and accomplish five goals. You look at the clock and see that it’s three in the afternoon- yet you haven’t even started! Don’t be hard on yourself. Take a deep breath and restart, renew and refresh.
Whether it’s something small- like procrastinating on your tasks or something big- like failing to forgive yourself for mistakes in your past, you always have the choice to start fresh. Here are three ways you can clear your mind and your heart to Restart. Renew. Refresh.
- Breathe! That’s right. Just breathe. It’s so simple, but taking slow deep breaths can lower stress and have a soothing effect on your body.
- Be still. Take a moment to sit still, quiet your mind and be in the moment. When you are overwhelmed or emotional, stillness can help you put things in perspective.
- Exercise. While being still can help you be calm and centered, getting a move on will get your blood flowing and put you in a good mood. Exercising can relieve tension and help you take your mind off your worries.
There is so much you can do to be refreshed- taking time to journal, talking with a supportive friend, listening to calming music, and so much more. Each day you have the choice to make all things new!
