We can all become overwhelmed in the work we do or the life we lead. It happens. Often, when we take on too much or fail to give ourselves time to step away and recharge. Life can become super-fast paced, and we sometimes believe that we need to keep up with the speed. It is like the accelerator pedal is stuck on maximum. Each day whizzes by in a flash and we become casualties, as we burn the candle at both ends. It is OK to take a break.
This month I was inspired by an action – to list the things I am grateful for. As part of my regular morning routine, to set myself up for the day, I affirm three things I am thankful for in my life. So, I decided to take the calendar action one step further, to consider why I am grateful for COVID 19, and focus on the positives I have achieved during the crisis.
It was during the delightful tea ceremony that we were able to find joy in the moment. What I noticed was the world seemed to slow down so we could savour every second. Sitting in an ancient temple, away from the hustle and bustle of the street, it was an almost automatic transition to a place of calm and reflection. Our surroundings welcomed us to step in and switch onto the joy of the moment.
