ELLE (UK) - - Elle Promotion -

If you’re look­ing for ways to im­prove your life and well­be­ing, what form does that take? When we’re look­ing to en­hance and en­rich our lives it’s all too easy to think of that as some­thing that needs to be ‘done’ – that the path to any­thing from re­lax­ation to en­light­en­ment has to in­volve some out­ward man­i­fes­ta­tion of that jour­ney: con­quer­ing a phys­i­cal chal­lenge such as trekking to Ever­est Base Camp, say, or get­ting in touch with your ‘au­then­tic’ self on a yoga mat or at a silent re­treat in some far-flung cor­ner of the globe.

In fact, the key to per­sonal ful­fil­ment can lie much closer to home. We’ve all heard about how im­por­tant it is to live in the mo­ment, but for many of us that’s eas­ier said than done. (Hence that ex­otic yoga re­treat – it’s got to be more doable if you sched­ule that ‘mo­ment’ in, right?)

What it re­ally comes down to is ap­pre­ci­at­ing and tak­ing plea­sure in the lit­tle things. Make a prom­ise to your­self to take some time out ev­ery day to en­joy a mo­ment of still­ness alone – even if it’s just dur­ing your morn­ing shower. You might be pleas­antly sur­prised to dis­cover how quickly you reap the re­wards of just 10 quiet, med­i­ta­tive min­utes en­joy­ing the sights, the sounds and the fra­grances around you.

Make a prom­ise to your­self to take some time out to en­joy a mo­ment of still­ness alone
