These days, living well is about taking on less but doing it more mindfully. Rather than ticking things off our to-do lists, we’re now focused on being in the moment, on treasuring the right-here-right-now of wherever we find ourselves. We are doing less, but enjoying it more.
If you haven’t yet embraced mindfulness, you will find it’s a great way to enjoy your life more. Best of all, it’s easy to master. Mindfulness can come through any activity that slows you down and grounds you. It might be a walk by the ocean, paying attention to the waves as they surge in and out, letting the ceaseless rhythm relax you. It could be any activity that absorbs your attention – cooking, painting, even colouring in. Perhaps, soak in the waters of a natural spring. Spending an hour in these thermal springs boost blood circulation, reduce stress, relieve pain and heal skin problems. Or you may find it just sitting, breathing, letting the world spin on without you.
