Slowing down


It has been a while since my last post. I have had an urge to reorganize my life with my main focus being to slow down. I do not have to do it all. I love everything I do but I have noticed my tendency to overdo things. So the last few weeks have been wonderful as I continue to simplify, slow down and live a mindful life.

Here are some of the things that I love doing: Many of the habits are not new but are done more consciously now.

Sleep early, wake up early 

Greeting the new day

Abhyanga – more in another post

Sun Salutions

Walking my daughter to school instead of driving

Drinking and eating more mindfully, without distractions and with love and gratitude

Herbal teas with grounding spices

Calming activities before bedtime

Prayers, visualizations, blessings

A rhythm to my day and more rituals of appreciation for the gift of life


Peace and Blessing to all.
