SPRING TO MINDFULNESS

Our regular contributors share their ways to keeping balanced and grounded in these challenging times.

Sunsets

Appreciating sunsets like this.
Simple things can bring the most peace.

Digital Drawing

I discovered digital drawing a few years back but learnt to love portrait drawing since quarantine started. When I draw, I enter another world feeling calm and good. As each drawing takes days to finish, I get a few hours a day not to think about anything and go into my own world of imagination.

Looking Up

Taking the time to look up.

Self Care Day

One of my favourite ways to wind down is to give myself a bit of a 'self care' day where I just let myself wind down with something like a sheet mask. I love taking time to do a bit of a skincare routine after a shower or before bed as the process is really relaxing and my skin always feels so lush afterwards.
