Thought I’d take advantage of this beautiful weather and start my much needed garden make over.
Clearing leaves, cutting back ivy, and washing white stones.
Remember to keep well hydrated, try this fresh watermelon summer breeze drink that’s easy to make.
1 kilo cubed watermelon
250 mls coconut water
squeeze of fresh lime
Sprig of mint
Ice if needed
Put all ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth. Chill and serve.
What better place to relax, soak up the rays and meditate
Once all that hard work is done.
There’s a part of us that wants to find peace from all the chaos in our lives,
to “go within”, and to find the stillness and quiet inside of ourselves, not outside of ourselves.
Tending to our garden, connecting in nature, feeling the heart connection with all around us is food for the soul
Make time to unwind, release anything that does not need to be in this space at this time and allow yourself to let go of all worries or stresses and just “Be” in this moment.
Find somewhere comfortable to sit, where you feel grounded.
Close your eyes.
Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, a gentle breeze on your face.
Become aware of your breathing, as you gently slow and deepen each breath.
Check how your physical body feels right now.
What sensations can you notice?
Is your posture upright and relaxed?
What emotions are you feeling in this moment?
Then check is your breathing relaxed?
Keep your attention on your breath for a few moments.
Breathe in for a count of 3 and out for a count of 3 in your own time.
Now expand your awareness beyond your physical body.
Can you feel the energy of the garden around you?
What does that feel like? If thoughts come in and your mind starts to wander just notice that and gently come back to your awareness of the present moment and focus again on your breathe.
When you are ready open your eyes, feel your feet connected to mother earth, so that you feel grounded and refreshed.
