It’s the start of autumn, a perfect time for crisp walks and warm drinks, and a mindful reminder that change is a natural part of life.
Here are three ways to slow down and savour the season:
1. Focus on one thing at a time. Most of us are guilty of multitasking, but when our thoughts are focused on the ten other things we have to do, we lose the present moment and miss out on small details that can improve our day, like noticing the colour of the sky or the joke our friend made.
2. Get some rest. A good night sleep can have a profound effect on our mood and body. Giving it all the rest it needs is honouring it. This is even more true when the solstice kicks in... nature starts slowing down, getting ready for winter after the high intensity of spring and summer. As human being it's important to mirror nature's cycles by honouring ours.
3. Shift your perspective. It’s easy to “live in the moment” when the moment’s enjoyable but what about when it’s bad, boring or lonely? Savouring the difficult parts of life can bring about a new way of understanding our own experience and what is essential to us.
Love & Good Vibes your way as always,
