The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR HEALTH -

You can ei­ther see pre­par­ing your evening meal as a source of stress in your life, an­other task that needs to be com­pleted or an op­por­tu­nity to nour­ish your­self/ your fam­ily. Pre­par­ing a beau­ti­ful soup, casse­role or slow cook can be med­i­ta­tive if you per­ceive it that way. Or pre-pre­pare meals or snacks on a Sun­day when you have space to cook with calm. It is amaz­ing how dif­fer­ent pre­par­ing a meal feels when you con­sider it a vi­tal part of your nour­ish­ment.


From the more in­tro­verted among us there is of­ten noth­ing more re­plen­ish­ing than a good read. Fact or fic­tion it doesn’t mat­ter – this time spent by your­self can be in­cred­i­bly restora­tive. In the age where ev­ery­thing is avail­able dig­i­tally you can’t beat pick­ing up a phys­i­cal book, hav­ing a break from screens and in­tro­vert­ing for a while. Read­ing be­fore bed is an­other won­der­ful way to help tran­si­tion the ner­vous sys­tem into rest.


When you take the rub­bish out at night, you might like to also spend some time out­doors and soak it up. No­tice the moon and the stars or the cloud pat­terns as this can be so nourishing for your soul.
