Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

Be Mindful of National Garden Meditation Day

Walk into your garden. Take a seat and take a deep breath; as National Garden Meditation Day is the perfect time for a refreshing, well overdue, mental reboot. We’re a few months into self-isolation, so what better time to start your mindfulness journey than now. 

Being around flourishing nature and in the fresh crisp air can make each breath through meditation so much purer and more relaxing. Everything feels so much clearer being out in refreshing air – it’s the perfect way to clear your mind of any negative thoughts. 

Meditation? But isn’t that just some silly thing hippies do? Absolutely not. Adding meditation to your morning routine has been scientifically proven to change your life. Yes seriously! As someone who used to think it was all bogus, I cannot stress enough the positive impact meditation has had on me.  Exploring this annual day could be the start of your mindful journey! 

Surrounding yourself with nature is proven to help relax our minds, so where better to meditate than in our gardens? Being in a safe and private space will help you unravel your thoughts and reconnect with your inner self. Meditating allows us to observe our thinking/thought process, completely unwind and take control of our mindwhich as we all know can be a busy place sometimes. Let’s think of it like this, you wouldn’t leave the house without brushing your teeth so why would you leave the house with an unclean mind ready to take on the day?  

Meditation allows us to be more mindful and present during our day. Having the ability to be fully present in any moment relieves us off any stress or sadness, whilst also increasing our focus. It allows us to take a step out of the constant stream of thinking. Its also incredibly useful for anyone struggling with mental illness, as it allows you to stop overthinking and take control of your thoughts!   

Rochelle Fox, a meditation teacher and influencer has her own kind of affirmation… ‘Don’t be your brains bitch’ teaches us to be in control of our mind, as we create our own reality through our perception. 

It’s time to be the one in power of your thoughts, listen to Rochelle, you are not your brains bitch! 

It’s time that we all start living and being more present in each moment.  

So, are you going to use this National Garden Meditation Day to become the best version of yourself? I mean, there really is no better time than now, to consider what you can do for your mental wellbeing. All you really need is your garden or a open space (with no one around) to explore…
