WQWWC :: Relax

journaling routine

Relax. Pockets of ‘me time’ during the day, sometimes not easy to find room for self-care in the middle of the daily business, but it’s a must to be able to do so. Early ‘me time’ sometimes starts with morning pages and a cup of coffee, other times it starts with a run by the river.

Either way, these are moments for relaxing and organizing my thoughts before getting ready for the day. As an introvert, it isn’t easy to be in contact with people and socializing at the work place. I need down time, to think and recharge.

Your calm mind is the ultimate weapon against your challenges.

favourite corner in my garden

My garden is my private paradise. Taking care and admiring the flowers and the vegetables or just sitting down and looking at the sky and feeling the breeze washing over my face and my hair. When at home I make sure I have a garden walk at least 3 times per day, generally after each meal.

Nothing more relaxing than spending a hot summer afternoon with a book and a refreshing drink.

Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.

Sharing with WQWWC, this week’s theme is Relax. And you? What you do to relax during the summer?

Square perspective – From the garden

morning walk

It’s already noon here! I had a busy morning and nothing better than letting go of unpleasant thoughts and worries than keep the hands occupied. I started the day early than usual, I didn’t sleep well, so instead of being in bed I got up and walked in the garden, saying hello to my flowers. After that, I had breakfast and cleaned up the house. I’ve just finished and I’m exhausted but feeling better, mission accomplished!

Hope you had or are having a loving day!

Coffee time

Flowers and coffee! My garden is blooming in beauty these days. Here are a few photos of it. I’ve taken many photos, all the time there is a little surprise in there. Mornings are my favourite time of the day. I make a strong coffee, fill up my cup and have a walk between the flowers and plants. I try to use this time, my ‘me time’, to focus on nothing, only to be! I forget the long day ahead, the past and the future. I say hello to all the flowers and of course, I take a pic with my cup of coffee.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday and a few moments of ‘me time’.
