I feel the pace increasing as the last vestiges of summer slip away. How can we embrace more ease as we step into this fall season?
In today’s article I want to explore the topic of ease. Specifically we’ll look at what ease is and how we can translate this into our personal lives.
What is ease?
To help us get started, let’s look at how the dictionary defines the word ease. Here are just some of the definitions I found on dictionary.com:
Ease defined: “freedom from labor, pain, or physical annoyance; tranquil rest; comfort” Click To Tweet
“freedom from labor, pain, or physical annoyance; tranquil rest; comfort”
“freedom from concern, anxiety, or solicitude; a quiet state of mind”
Synonyms for the word ease include: calm, content, satisfaction, serenity, restfulness, & enjoyment
With this definition and synonyms in mind, let’s take a moment to explore how we can translate this idea of ease into our own lives.
Let Go to Embrace
As I read through the definition and synonyms of ease, I found I was most struck by the words “freedom from…” There was a sense that I needed to let go of something in order to make room to embrace more.
Ease needs us to create space in our lives in order for it to exist. With this in mind, I want to invite you to use the following journal prompts to explore how you can create space for more ease in your life.
