The Calming Ritual of Tea

Making Tea a Ritual ~ 5 Minutes to Mindfulness

As simple as this may sound, and as cheesy as this video may be, there really are a ton of benefits in turning the act of drinking a cup of tea, into a mindful ritual.

Of course I shot this video BEFORE the days of quarantined life, and now drinking tea is something I do with my kids running around me squealing lol! However, it doesn’t take away the enjoyment of such a simple act.

Lastly, remember you can do anything for 5 minutes so why not to do something positive for your well being. 💕

Stay mindful my friends.🙏🏻

Why Floating is Therapeutic!

I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year that I start craving some Vitamin Sea!

Did you know that floating in nature, or feeling weightless in a hammock, or even utilizing a “flotation tank”, also known as a “sensory deprivation chamber” has many benefits! It is most often used as a method for relaxation and to boost creativity. It can allow one to engage in a deep meditative state, regardless of meditation experience.

Watch this video to feel some summer vibes and a taste of serenity.

Lastly, remember you can do anything for 5 minutes so why not to do something positive for your well being. 💕

Stay mindful my friends.🙏🏻

The Importance of Walking in Nature!

I get it, it’s hard to get outdoors when you would rather stay cozied up inside where it’s warm, but did you know that walking in nature can decrease depression, improve your wellbeing and mental health, and lower perceived stress???

Sometimes all we have is 5 minutes!! So this is just a friendly reminder to try and spend those 5 minutes doing something POSITIVE for yourself!!

Imagine how you would feel if you implemented walking in nature for 5 minutes a day, 7 days a week!!!😊

For more Benefits of Walking in Nature, watch this Video!

Why YOU Should Create a VISION BOARD

Happy New Year everyone! Since we have entered into a new decade, I have been fired up to set intentions, put goals into action and manifest my wildest dreams. I kicked the new year off by creating a Vision Board for my “2020 Vision” and hung it up by my bathroom sink so I would see it every day!

Did you know that a vision board is a concrete representation of your desires and aspirations for a compelling life? They are also fun to create and can serve as an invaluable tool to motivate and inspire you towards concrete daily action in pursuit of your biggest and most important life goals!

A vision board is a sacred place that displays what you want in life. When you hang it in a space where you see it daily, your vision board brings your goals and aspirations to life…

So check out my latest episode on 5 MINUTES TO MINDFULNESS and take 5 minutes to create a vision board that will give you a clear picture of where you want to get to!

How to make a Vision Board!
