Busy much? These tips will help you en­joy each mo­ment.

Sched­ule down­time

When mak­ing plans, carve out what con­sul­tant Sara Har­vey Yao calls ‘white space’. Ei­ther alone or with fam­ily and friends, re­serve a block on your cal­en­dar with no agenda. “The trick is to not de­cide how you’re go­ing to use it un­til it be­gins,” she ex­plains. “When the time comes, ask your­self, ‘What do I need right now? What am I in­spired to do?’”

re­mem­ber your in­tent

Rac­ing against the clock can make shop­ping or or­gan­is­ing seem bur­den­some, says Sara. “Take a quick pause and ac­knowl­edge the pos­i­tive in­ten­tions be­hind all the prep.”

no­tice the de­tails

“Bring your at­ten­tion to the colour, tex­ture and flavour of what you’re eat­ing,” Sara says. Tak­ing note of smaller things can help you make more in­ten­tional choices – and fully rel­ish your ex­pe­ri­ences.
