5 WAYS TO SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY LIFE A LITTLE MORE

I work full time in a job that is often hectic, and I’ve often experienced high pressure and felt very uncomfortable because I had way too much on my plate. I’ve therefore become extremely conscious of how I spend my days. I embrace the quiet evenings. Taking time off from the world and better care of myself. I found out that this was exactly what I needed. To slow down, making no apologies for what my body and mind needs. Assuring that I take care of my self and that which makes me the person I am and want to be. And because of that, figuring out my own limits, I want to share 5 things that personally helped me bring calm into my life.

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO:
  • Candles. Create a calm space with pillar candles or scented candles. I personally love scented candles with the smell of the outdoors.
  • Take a bath. If you are so fortunate a person to own a bathtub, this is the perfect way to unwind. Put on some soothing music, light a candle and enjoy the moment.
  • Go for a walk. This is a great way to breath in and let go of the pressures of life.
  • Add more greenery to your home. Plants can do wonders for our well-being, and the environment around us.
  • Spend time in the kitchen. Bake from scratch and make an afternoon of it. The smell of fresh bread or cake will fill your home. What’s not to like?

 I love to put on some soothing music that gets me in a cozy mood and makes me feel relaxed.

MY PERSONAL PLAYLIST:

So Good At Being In Trouble & Necessary Evil – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Mystery Of Love – Sufjan Stevens

Just Like Heaven – Katie Melua

Dusk To Dawn – Emancipator

From The North – APSE

Still Beating & This Old Dog – Mac DeMarco

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!
