Sometimes day to day life can seriously mess with your inner peace. ✌️
A rushed morning, an silly argument with the hubby, a toddler tantrum, a forgotten work pass, a spilt drink, workload piling up and that horrible feeling of irritability that just will not subside. Until finally the slightest inconvenience tips you over the edge – oh hello mode meltdown, goodbye motivation and sometimes even a full on strop!
I find on days like this I need to consciously remove myself from the way I am feeling. I love a good yoga session (not that I get chance to do it much these days) and I especially enjoy the shavasana (the relaxing bit at the end). Whenever the request is to take myself to where I find most relaxing, it is always a beach & my breath becomes the waves – perfection right there 🐚
As often as I can, I try and remember the amazing feeling of relaxation that I feel when being transported off to my happy place in those sessions. I find it doesn’t take much – just a little bit of mindfulness can go a long way.

Might sound a bit wanky – but it’s all about being present with yourself, looking from the outside in. You are not your emotions and you can do ANYTHING, but not everything.
