Let us be present!
As you all know, self-care is essential for our happiness. Eating well, getting a good night’s sleep, and meditating helps us stay centered, happy, and healthy. Nowadays, it seems almost impossible to stay away from our devices. When I’m not working on a writing project, I truly enjoy unplugging from technology.
Yes, I hear you. In our society, we can’t function without our computers/technology. I get that. However, let us make an effort during our off-time to enjoy some relaxation without having our eyes glued to a device and our brains somewhere else. It’s like staring at a yummy looking chocolate doughnut right after a workout. Even though it looks delicious, keep in mind it is also loaded with trans-fat, which is not that great for us. It takes hard work, daily, to resist the addiction (and it is an addiction) of checking our phones every five minutes, to get updates on the imaginary world of social media..
Social media is a place where everyone is trying to make their life look so perfect. I will be discussing more on the pros and cons of technology and social media in my next article called “In the Moment.” I will keep you posted when my new piece goes live
The joy of organizing the closet
It is one of the best and most mindful activities. Everyone should do it every new season. Getting rid of old clothing in your closet must be one of the best feelings ever. Even if the item is not that old, or if you just have not worn it in a while, it needs to go. Remove it from your closet. The feeling is great. It is like letting go of old memories
My closet cleaning project is almost complete. I have been shopping for new dresses and casual jean skirts to wear with boots during the fall. I will be sharing a few links where you can update your closet without spending a fortune.
What is it about fall that makes everyone happy? Maybe it is because the holiday season is not that far away.
This cozy season brings us so much fun and beautiful holidays, such as Halloween, Thanksgiving in the US, and my husband Patrick’s birthday. Then, right after Thanksgiving, a new Holiday season begins. I love Laura Vitale’s Pumpkin Spice Latte
during this time of year.
I have already started to decorating for Halloween. I know it is still a month away, but this cozy weather makes decorating easy. Just last week, I purchased this adorable scarecrow. When I brought it home, Claudio welcomed this cute little doll to our house with a bark and a gentle push to the floor.
I will be back for my next blog update soon. Until then, smile and stay Zen!
