Looking after Body and Mind

Standard

To keep your body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

Buddha

Because I felt so stressed recently I booked myself a SPA weekend in a hotel about an hour away from my home.

It was a package and started with a revitalising massage on Saturday. It was beautiful and so relaxing with sweet smelling oils and soothing music, I loved it!  Then I could use the facilities like the swimming pool, the steam room, Sauna and the gym. There were heated tiled lounging chairs to relax on.  I had some meditation sessions in between for relaxing the mind too.

The hotel was beautiful, the staff was amazing, the food was super (included was lunch and dinner and the next morning’s breakfast) and I enjoyed this weekend thoroughly. It was total bliss!

Sometimes we need to treat ourselves and forget about everything.

Let go off all worries,

stresses and plans and

just be, enjoy and relax.

I wish you all a great start to the week

and I hope you feel energised and refreshed!

The ABC of Genuine Happiness

R – Read. Relax. Reinvent yourself.

“Let us read and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” Voltaire

I love reading and could get lost in bookshops.

Relax

Everyone relaxes in a different way.

My favourite is the hammock between the palm trees…. which one is yours?

Reinvent yourself

It is never too late to start again, reinvent yourself, change, take risks, get out of the comfort zone, be a new you, follow your dreams, do what makes you happy.

You are in control of your life and happiness.

Be irresistible,

be amazing

be you!

I haven’t been around as much as I like on the blogs and I hope I eventually have more time to myself again soon and  I hope I can visit you all again.  Life is extremely busy but good!

I did  manage to have a wonderful walk with friends as the sun was shining and Spring seems to be coming. I loved the blue sky , no cloud in sight:

Be Thankful

~ Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire. If you did what would there be to look forward to?

~ Be thankful for such a beautiful Day

~ Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

~ Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement.

~ Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character.

~ Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

~ Be thankful when you’re tired and weary, because it means you’ve made an effort.

There are so many things we can be thankful for, simple things we take for granted, but without them we would feel lost.

gratitude

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”

Eckhart Tolle

“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” –Meister Eckhardt

“Gratitude is medicine for a heart devastated by tragedy. If you can only be thankful for the blue sky, then do so. ”
Richelle E. Goodrich

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
Epicurus

“An attitude of gratitude brings great things.” –Yogi Bhajan

If you concentrate on finding,
whatever is good in every situation,
you will discover,
that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude,
a feeling that nurtures the soul.
~ Rabbi Harold Kushner ~

Don’t smile! Really ?????

Standard

This is what I was told today…..

unbelievable and impossible.

She said “look straight, don’t smile and shut your mouth.”

You guessed right, it was in a photo booth to have new passport pictures taken. On those you are not allowed to smile. It was rather hard!

Needless to say I didn’t like that picture.

Can you think of a life without smiling…. no way!

A smile is the best curve on a woman….

A smile brings people together…

A smile makes happy…

A smile is free….

A smile can make a big difference in someone’s day…

A smile is contagious….

A smile starts conversations……

A smile makes the world a happier place.

“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.”

Mother Teresa

The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

Sending you big smiles and enjoy the gift of today!
