One Essential Ritual For A Mindful Morning

One Essential Ritual For A Mindful Morning

Today, I wish to share one essential ritual that I have been exploring recently to create a more mindful morning. I hope that it gives you something to try tomorrow morning to bring a little more connectedness, calm and mindfulness into your day. 

What do you do as soon as you wake up in the morning, as soon as your eyes blink open? Do you reach for your mobile, switch off the alarm and then proceed to check your emails? Do you find yourself on Facebook or instagram, eyes squinting to focus on the screen, amidst the darkness of the room? 

Or...Do you take a few moments to reflect and sit in stillness with yourself before you begin your day?

6 Lessons I Learned While Travelling Alone

6 Lessons I Learned While Travelling Alone

Last month, I went to Japan for four amazing weeks. I spent two of those weeks travelling alone, making my way through small country towns, staying in an eco log cabin in the mountain and spending a night in a yurt on the beach.

I was brought to my knees by the natural beauty of the Japanese landscape; from the rivers and valleys to the smattering of tiny islands along the Seto Inland sea. And in the two weeks alone, I immersed myself in the beauty of the language, the delicate flavours of the food, their tireless dedication to tradition, and all the cultural nuances in between.

Free Printable Self Care Reminder

Free Printable Self Care Reminder

Since the beginning of this year, I have been feeling a strong pull towards creating, doing, moving forwards, and taking action. This energy is incredibly motivating and exciting, and as a result I have found that my mind is often racing with new ideas. Sometimes it feels like my mind is constantly planning where I will be 6 months or 12 months.  

That is why self care is so important during these times where we are inspired and in flourish; to stay present, to stay grounded and to maintain awareness. Self care reminds you to take a step back and perceive the world from a more internal place. It helps you gain clarity over what it is that you truly want in your life versus something which isn't completely right for you.

I ensure that my daily dose of self care starts in the stillness of the morning, when I do my yoga, or when I meditate, or when I enjoy a cup of tea to myself.
