Against the gloom nourish the soul

 nourish the soul

Nourish the soul is important. That gloom, that  thin feeling of malaise that takes you during the day, maybe on Sunday or Monday morning, of which you can not free yourself, melancholy, sadness, restlessness is nothing but a signal of the soul. Essential nutrition is lacking. Goofing on twitter or playing on the phone for hours even though it may seem like a way to release the tension, it is not the solution, is instead comparable to junk food for the soul. You worry about feeding yourself, maybe training yourself, you worry about the appearance and how you dress, maybe you forget that the soul is nourished, but how and with what? Soul loves being free, loves music, holidays, art, being able to swing freely without limits of time and space. So it is necessary to devote space and a suitable diet, and when necessary to do a work diet, from social. However, it is not enough to put one show a week on the calendar, switch off the phone and put on some music. The soul desires attention and quality time, wants to be at the center of your attention, for her the most important thing is not the what but the how. Imagine an encounter with your beloved or loved one, you must know each other, and that time will be for you alone. With this quality put on some music, take a walk, whatever the insight suggests, but it is essential that time is all for you. The gloom is a signal that is sending you the soul.
