Thank you Sal xxx
Spend time with Nature
Like a child, let your inner child shine through, skim rocks, drive into the sea, roll down a hill. Plan activities outside – meals, exercise, sex, socialising, work even.
Get out and see the Stars!
Go outside after dark, connect with the world around you at night. The cosmos, the big universe, it will get you connected to a greater picture. Take an evening walk with your dog, or a beach walk on a Full Moon. If you do this often you will be guaranteed to see shooting stars!
It’s really the simplest exercise but it opens you up to endless happiness.
Pay attention…Be Mindful
The sound of the birds in the morning, the flower facing the sunlight. The change of weather and seasons. Look at nature adapting changing. Notice the tiny things. The colour of the petals on flowers, Then bees visiting them daily. The lizard visiting a rock in the sun. The sunset littering the sky with golden light. The small miracles in nature are happening every where every day. The reward of paying attention to these things is healing, connecting us to the world around us. We become part of the grand creation.
Grow your own herbs, veggies, fruits. If you have the land begin planting trees, or even make a veggie patch and watch it grow. Enjoy the rewards of cooking and looking after your own food. If you have a tiny flat or apartment, grab some pots, plant your favourite herbs, a tomato vine and enjoy adding them to every dish. There is something so beautiful about eating your own food. You instantly feel apart of nature your feel the exchange of giving and taking from the earth. You begin to under stand that this earth has provided us with everything we possibly need. You begin to ask questions. What is it everyone is actually working towards ? If there is fruit on the trees and greens in the gardens what are we actually working towards? You then make more conscious decisions about your career and consumer purchases.
Go somewhere Different
Get in the car. Drive somewhere you have never been before – a river, a beach, a mountain or a forest. go for a walk around. You will be surprised how inspired and recharged you will feel when you return.
Watch the Sunrise
This is my favourite time of day. The world is kind. Untouched. Un disturbed. Drink it in. Watch the light wake up the entire world. The early morning is indeed a time for insight and gratitude.
