FIND­ING SOLI­TUDE

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Fortis Surgical Hospital Special -

Michelle shares four habits that help her to en­joy the quiet mo­ments in her life.

1 Get an Early Start

“I wake up be­tween 6am and 7am ev­ery day to pre­pare break­fast – my favourite meal of the day. On week­days, I make a berry smoothie, boiled eggs, ce­real with al­mond milk, cof­fee and juice. Week­ends are for big­ger spreads – bread, cheese, ham and fruit. I en­joy us­ing the time to read, un­wind and savour my meal.”

2 Work Up a Sweat

“I go for yoga classes once a week. I also head down to the pool to swim a few laps and chill out on a deckchair. I ap­pre­ci­ate the peace I get when I’m con­cen­trat­ing fully on th­ese ac­tiv­i­ties.”

3 Seek Pam­per­ing

“Once ev­ery two weeks, I visit my reg­u­lar spa for a re­lax­ing fa­cial. They’re so quiet and con­sid­er­ate when they open the doors or cup­boards, that I feel like they should be on my new game show, Si­lence! I al­ways get rest­ful sleep when I’m there.”

4 Be Cre­ative

“For me, paint­ing is akin to med­i­ta­tion – it helps me to quiet my mind. I haven’t had time to cre­ate an art piece in a while; the last time I painted was about two years ago with my girl­friends dur­ing an art jam. But I’d like to go back to paint­ing again.”
