Finding mindful moments in a busy schedule
In the rut of everyday life, brief pauses of calm can make a big difference. Here are some easy tweaks that can help you enjoy summer, even when you (almost) don’t have the time.
Create a balcony feel by the window
Grab the opportunity after the kids have fallen asleep, but there’s still a bit of summer sun outside. Slide some seating together over by the light, drape a net over it all and feel the relaxation spread. And since you’re there, why not take turns reading to each other?
Make laundry time me time
While chores don’t take summer vacation, you can still turn them into sunny moments with a bit of self-pampering. Set up a provisional vanity corner with nail care, a herbal hand bath and some time to yourself in-between everyday cycles.
Lean back in your garden nook
When a busy day hasn’t allowed time for getting out, arrange a bit of nature time on your own. Gather your greenery to a spot by the window, sink into your seating of choice, and enjoy a soothing cup of tea surrounded by your floor garden.
