7 Tips for Finding Calm During a Busy Day

Strategies to slow down and smell the roses

Our daily lives are busy, very much so when juggling work and family, and sometimes we forget to take a moment to appreciate the small, special moments as we rush from one thing to the next.

1. Morning cuppa

Don’t rush your morning cuppa, take the time to really enjoy it, it makes for a good beginning to the day.

2. Take a walk in the fresh air

Movement and deep breathing aids relaxation, and if you’re in front of a computer much of the day, this is even more important. It may be a walk down to your local cafe to pick up lunch, it may be that a morning or evening walk is already part of your daily ritual. Being outside you can take a moment to appreciate the seasons, sunsets or sunrises, a jacaranda in full bloom…

3. Meal times

When your preparing dinner and eating your meal take a moment to consider how your food was grown, eat slowly and really taste each mouthful.

4. Take a moment

When you find yourself rushing, really make the effort to be in the moment, stop what you’re doing to actively listen to your child or partner, if you’re busy cooking dinner and there’s a beautiful sunset, pop outside and enjoy it for a moment. There’s unexpected joy to be found in the little things.

5. Bathing

At day’s end there’s nothing quite like closing the bathroom door and taking a bath with Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence or Rose Nurturing Bath Essence, both of which are protective milky formulations. After bath stay away from your device(s) and take yourself off to bed for a restful night’s sleep.

6. Active relaxation

Find out what works for you, it may be coffee with a friend, yoga, sport, baking, creative endeavours, a good book – there will be something that provides active relaxation for you and helps clear your head from busy thoughts.

7. Skin care rituals

Be in the moment during your morning and evening skin care rituals. This is a time when you take the very best care of your skin and look after yourself. Also take a moment to deeply smell nature’s aromas that are contained in every bottle or tube. When we take time to nurture ourselves we feel more able to nurture others.
