Sitting in Stillness


Happy Friday, Friend,

It’s been so long since I’ve connected with you and I hope you’re doing well. The past few months I’ve been focused on putting the finishing touches on my book which I’m excited to share with you soon! 🙂

When we’re fully consumed in a project, or in a busy season with our family or personal lives it can be easy to feel like we’re constantly in motion. Sometimes it isn’t until you stop for a minute that you realize how rushed you really were.

It’s important we allow ourselves moments to sit in stillness. Whether it’s taking a vacation or simply sitting in silence for a few minutes in your car before walking in the door after work, we need time to slow down and be still. Quiet time allows our minds to process, unpack and get creative. It gives our bodies a chance to breathe deeper and our souls a moment to recognize how much we have to be thankful for.

Take a moment to be still with yourself this weekend. Let your mind stretch to where it wants to and take in the scenery around you. 

Pay attention to what stands out. We often hold the answers to the questions we most seek, but we need time to be still to invite them in.

Wishing you a still and peaceful weekend,

Emily and the EveryDay Happy Team

Even when we have the best intentions, life happens, and it’s easy to find ourselves feeling like we’ve gone off track or fallen behind. We may even be tempted to throw in the towel and give up on something completely.

Give Yourself a Break

With so much on our plates, it’s easy to forget to prioritize our own well-being. But self-care isn’t a luxury reserved for special occasions — it’s essential to our daily lives.
