Mind­ful liv­ing: what does it mean ex­actly? I think it’s dif­fer­ent for ev­ery­body. For me, it means check­ing in on how I’m feel­ing and mak­ing ad­just­ments along the way if some­thing in my life needs tweak­ing. I pri­ori­tise things I love do­ing in my free time to en­sure I stay in a healthy mind­set (eas­ier said than done most of the time, but I do try!). In terms of the home, can­dles, lots of plants, flow­ers from the gar­den brought in­side, and brightly coloured linen on the bed are the lit­tle things that make me happy and im­prove my well­be­ing. What are yours?

Tastes and cir­cum­stances evolve over time so it’s worth check­ing back in ev­ery now and again to make new habits or rit­u­als that make you feel good. An­other thing the Your Home and Gar­den team all agree on is that hav­ing pets in the home in­creases hap­pi­ness. Check out our ‘Crea­ture comforts’ shoot on page 35, which fea­tures a few of our furry friends – need­less to say, that was a very good day at the of­fice!
