I want to create my life as a continiously reminder to live in consciousness. Love and curiousity are my fuel to satisfy my spiritual needs. Human connections are essential for me I enjoy to be in the nature and with myself, being and spreading happiness.
Enjoy being with family and friends and doing Mindfulness and Yoga practices :smiley:
I tried all kind of incense sticks. But finally my favorite incense is the blue Nag Champa. It makes me happy and relaxed and feel like home. I also like the smell of Palo Santo but I'm always struggeling to keep it burning.
Those are my favorite helpers so far. Like @Calvin77 mentioned I also try to use a tote bag to go shopping. Also, I use a bag to buy vegetables without plastic, a bottle that I fill with filtered water, a cup of bamboo when we do a picnic and straws made out of metal. I also stopped using liquid Read more… soaps. Most difficult for me is to reduce packaging from food like cheese, tofu or yogurt. My kids love yogurts but not that much the one with glass to make my own one I didn't find the time yet. For the other items, I still need a solution.
Now that I went I also need to say: yes it was really hot! So the other years it wasn't like this? Thanks for sharing @Thergreen
0.5-liter coffee sounds a lot @Enriqueto. Do you feel ok with it? I used to drink a lot of coffee in the morning, too. I thought that I wouldn't be able to wake up without drinking any. However, for several reasons, I changed that and I'm drinking now green or white tea in the morning. I realized Read more… that I have much more energy in the day.
Over time I tried out a lot of things to add in my morning routine. But it's difficult to keep up with a time-intensive morning routine, especially as I am having small kids that require my attention. So I finally stuck with waking up consciously (becoming aware of my body and mind) and stretch in the bed, later I also make my bed for the same reason like @gre 😆I love to eat 9 soaked almonds in the morning, which was recommended by my yoga teacher. after this, I brush my teeth and take a shower. If I wake up earlier I also do a bit yoga or meditation in the morning.
Thanks for sharing Steve. It completely resonates with me. happiness arrises after appreciation of the things that I have and be grateful for them. In the past, I mixed it up and thought I need to get somewhere to become happy.
