To nourish means to supply with what is necessary for life, health and growth. When I speak about nourishing the body, we all get the idea that we need to supply our bodies with food, hopefully good food and maybe exercise. Yet when I speak about nourishing the soul, many people turn a deaf ear! They don't know what I am speaking about and most people don't even want to discuss that topic.

Nourishing the soul is actually vital for your overall good health and well-being. Too many people rely on medication to get them through life. They have turned to a pill to help them sleep, stay awake, cover up pain and experience ecstasy. But once you learn how to nourish your soul, you will be in a better place emotionally and mentally to experience a wonderful sense of inner peace and calm. Connecting with and nourishing your soul is actually a lifestyle alternative because it allows one to connect with their source, their core essence.

What fills your soul? Calmness, inner peace, contentment, laughter, a joy-filled experience all fills your soul. A giggle, a happy smile, a deep sense of satisfaction feeds your soul. An intuitive hit, a gut feeling to do something whimsical feeds your soul. Pay attention to those little signs that nudge you to either do something to refresh yourself or to avoid because it is leading you in the wrong direction.

Here are some tips that will help you nourish your soul, which in turn will add a wonderful sense of happiness to your heart as well.

1.Make a point daily to reserve some alone time. Whether you take a soothing bath at the end of the day with soft music, read a relaxing and calming book or meditate. Too many people work right up to sleep time or text or are on the phone; all those activities stimulate you and that is not what you want to do before bed.

2. Art-music-writing are beautiful ways to get lost within your own thoughts and that in itself is nurturing. It is a wonderful way to express yourself in a satisfying way.

3. Commune with nature - whether walking in a garden, planting or playing with the soil, There is nothing like breathing in the fresh air and feeling more alive yet at the same time feeling the stillness of the earth as you immerse yourself in the peace of quietness and the sounds of nature.

4. Create a sacred place within your home, a quiet sanctuary for your soul that makes you feel safe and secure. This special place should be a refuge from the rest of the world for you and even your family. Make sure that your home reflects what you want to experience. Remove clutter and chaos and surround yourself with beauty, pleasant sound and love.

Our soul is our spirit, which also enables us to breathe life into our minds and bodies. If we make our soul a sanctuary that is loved and respected, it will treat us with loving kindness in return. When we were created, We were given our amazing souls that enable us to express our uniqueness, to reason, to imagine, to dream and to use our intellects to fashion our greatness and individuality just the way we desire. Isn't it time for you to take measures to show appreciation to this marvelous gift before it is taken away from you?
