A couple of days ago I watched a video that really touched me. It made me realize, like many times before, that I take waaaay too many things for granted.
How is it that we get so busy with our every day lives, forget to be grateful for what we have and just run unconsciously?
We get lost because of the incredible speed that we are running at – physically, mentally, and emotionally. That’s why it is crucial to quiet your mind every day, to sit and watch your breath, to reconnect with your inner being. The more regularly you are able to slow down, the more you will be able to enjoy every day and experience a true happiness. Not a quick happiness caused by a sudden excitement, from a new toy that you bought, but a real deep stable happiness.
Try to sit with yourself at least 10 minutes each day. You can start with just 5 minutes and build up to 15-20 minutes twice a day. If you are starting incorporating a quiet time into your daily routine, be gentle with yourself. It might be incredibly difficult at first and your mind might be going crazy. If this is the case, have a paper and pen ready and when you think of something 'super important' during your quiet time, write it down. The mind WILL quiet down with time. Promise.
The more quiet your mind is, the more grateful, thankful, happy you will be and less often you will need reminders such as this one from Emanuel Kelly, Australia. His strength, his spirit, and his courage are incredible. Thank you, Emanuel, for reminding us of the important things in life. Thank you for slowing us down. Thank you for your Spirit.
A couple of weeks ago, we came back from an amazing island of Ischia, where we daily stretched our bodies with ayurvedic yoga and also picked up some ayurvedic tips on staying healthy & happy. The island is even more beautiful than I have thought. It has incredible energy and vitality. The volcanic activity is very visible in the hundreds of hot springs that this island offers. My favorite was Sorgeto,
where the hot springs come directly into the sea. Just a couple of pictures to get you inspired for next year.
