Life is a journey, but work and screens can take over. Simple daily habits can offer a buffer. A few small routines help to create quality time and moments of contentment that make a big difference in how you feel.
Summer is a busy time, and it’s easy to end up over committed. You feel happy and more calm when you make time for self-care.
The best way to build resilience and immunity is through everyday self-care.
I’m not going anywhere this weekend but I don’t mind. A long weekend at home can feel like a holiday too. Having three whole days off is such a treat. If I’m honest, looking after myself is not always as high on the list of priorities as it should be. Taking care of my home is something I enjoy but don’t always have enough time for. This weekend they are the main things on my agenda.
Sleep, yoga and journalling. Is that it?
They sound simple but are totally worth the time commitment; not easy to find when you have work, family and a personal life to juggle.
I believe we all have an artist inside of us. This book changed my life. I have told so many people about it that I’ve lost count. What surprises me is that I forget and when I see them again, they thank me and tell me how their life has changed.
Reflecting on the mother figures in my life has made me realise how they’ve influenced me in small but important ways and how much I miss them. I wonder how my children, or maybe my grand-children will remember me.
Keeping my Sunday simple makes me stop and feel thankful for what I have., and that makes me feel happier. When I’m happier, I’m more able to enjoy small moments with my family before we all start yelling or someone starts complaining (Yes, that happens in my family pretty much every day!)
