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.

O – Own a pet. Observe beauty

This is my pet Thomas, a very relaxed and loving cat.

He gives me love, warmth and many purrs to keep me happy.

A pet does wonders!

See the beauty!

Often we walk around not seeing the beauty along the road.

Have a look here!

A thank you to my sister for being able to use her Beauty – ful pictures.

Beauty is all around us.

Lie on the grass and observe the birds flying,

listen to the rustling of the leaves in the wind,

see the little bud of a small daisy flower coming out,

follow the bee how it travels through a flower,

watch the flower move in the breeze

enjoy the colourful butterfly circling round in the air.

☼☼☼

Watching a flower grow is an amazing treat with timelapse

even what we regard as a weed looks wonderful in nature.

 

Let’s look out for the beauty around us!

The ABC of Genuine Happiness

M – Meditate daily. Make goals

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future; live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Mindfulness is Buddha’s word for meditation. By mindfulness he means: you should always remain alert, watchful. You should always remain present. Not  a single thing should be done in a sort of sleepy state of mind…. you should move with a sharp consciousness. – Osho

You are never too old to set another goal

or to dream a new dream.
