There’s more than one way to let life in. Embrace them with new HERBAL ESSENCES BIO: RENEW, inspired by nature
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.
