When I finally craft the perfect body, I'll be happy.⁠ ⁠ If only I could find true love, then I will be happy.⁠ ⁠ I'll get a better job that pays me more money and then I'll be happy.⁠ ⁠ Once I have that big house, I'll be happy.⁠ ⁠ These are just a few of the misconceptions that so many of us carry through life as goals to aspire to, believing that long-lasting happiness awaits us once we attain them. Professor Laurie Santos from Yale University has some bad news for us. These goals do not make us as happy as we think they will. In fact, pursuing these goals might even make us feel worse. ⁠ ⁠ The good news is that Laurie can teach us about several other practices, or "rewirements", including gratitude, meditation, savouring and sleep, which have been scientifically proven to improve well-being. I have just completed her 10-week programme, The Science of Well-being, which is available on @coursera for free. This is a simple to digest, highly flexible course with the potential to connect you back to habits that promote your day to day health and happiness. ⁠ ⁠ To read more of my reflections on the programme, visit the link in bio for the full blog post.

This is a photograph from our last short break together back in October. We were lucky to have such a beautiful view of the sea everywhere we went. It was a great two days of rest and recovery.⁠ ⁠ I'm ready for that feeling again of truly switching off. I'm taking a week long break in July and, although it will be spent in the house, I'm intending to break out of the usual routine and plan a flexible schedule of activities that are all about maximising R&R. This includes having a ditigal detox.⁠ ⁠ If you have ideas to share on how to replicate those holiday vibes from home, I'd love to see them in the comments below.⁠ ⁠ #holiday #rest #recovery #holidayplanning #schedule #itinerary #digitaldetox #mindfulness #mindfulnessblog #mindfulnessblogger #blog #calm #zen #relax #simplicity

There is no time like the current to explore the ideas behind mindfulness. Being in the present and living from day to day is exactly what we are forced to be doing. 🧘‍♀️ ⁣ ⁣ What can we take with us into the future? Read through the link in my bio why and how it can help you out!

If we let our mind choose what we focus on, our life will be filled with fear and frustration as we will be at the mercy of our thoughts. When we step into our awareness, we begin to notice our thoughts and choose the ones that create the best life we can imagine.

If you haven't checked in with yourself this week, this is your reminder to reflect.⁠ ⁠ Here is a very simple and quick well-being reflection that you can do every morning.⁠ ⁠ How was the quality of your sleep last night?⁠ Did you hydrate well yesterday?⁠ Did you move around enough?⁠ Did you eat well?⁠ Have you had enough meaningful social connection?⁠ ⁠ Score the quality of each of these areas from zero (awful) to five (great).⁠ ⁠ Which area needs some attention first?⁠ Choose one priority. ⁠ What one action can you set for yourself today that will improve it?⁠ It doesn’t need to be huge, it can be be something small. Make it tangible and manageable. ⁠ Write it down, put it in your calendar, guard it and do it. ⁠ ⁠ Future you will be glad that you did.⁠ ⁠ #reflect #checkin #wellbeing #selfcare #wordoftheday #mindfulness #mindfulnessblog #mindfulnessblogger #blog #calm #zen #relax #simplicity⁠ ⁠ Star design by Kirsty Pargeter

You will be “too much” for some. But, what if we allowed ourselves & each other to be, to own & to celebrate that “too-much-of-whatever-it-may-be” because that is who we are? // #NamasteOkay #BeBig

How often do we disappoint ourselves in fear of disappointing someone else? We try to save ourselves from the uncomfortable feelings of speaking our Truth and each time we do that we lose faith in ourselves. When we listen to our heart and follow those little intuitive messages, we find that standing in our authenticity is so powerful that we can easily withstand those feelings of discomfort from disappointing someone else. Each time we speak our Truth and choose authenticity over fear we step into our power, and in doing so are encouraging those around us to do the same. Spread the love. Be yourself 💗 • • • • #bettertogether #gratitudechangesourperspective #tuneintoyourintuition #getintotheflow #mindfulnessforthegood #lastingchangestartswithyourthoughts #followyourjoy #savourthegood #bestill #bekind #itfeelsgoodtobegood #liveintentionally #selfcare #selflove #mindfulnesspractice #mindfulliving #mindfullife #nadiakovacblog #mindfulnessblog #thoughtscreatefeelings #goodthoughtscreategoodfeelings #choosethegood #openyourheart #changethewayyoulive #becometheobserverofyourthoughts

J o u r n a l⁠ ⁠ A friend gifted me a beautiful pause journal from @kikki.k back in 2017, which I'm still writing in today since I'm terribly slow at filling an entire book!⁠ ⁠ At the time I received the gift, I was about one year into a simplicity and minimalism journey, living on my own in a little studio apartment. The pause journal was a lovely complement to that journey.⁠ ⁠ There are lots of little mindfulness prompts that require you to really engage with your senses and feelings in that present moment. This ranges from simple check-ins with yourself to finding creativity, gratitude and inspiration in all of life's simple things. It is a great way to practice being the observer of your emotions and to appreciate the little things in your everyday surroundings.⁠ ⁠ I go through spells of writing in the pause journal each day for weeks and then I can go months without writing in it at all. When I pick it back up again, I take a moment to read through some of the pages.⁠ ⁠ What I love about re-reading this book is that there are lots of simple, joyful moments captured from the past 3 years that would otherwise have been forgotten. Reading these small, forgotten moments brings a smile.⁠ ⁠ What I also love is that the fears in some of the more worried entries, written in times of deep stress, never materialised as I felt they would at the time. It reminds me that all feelings and emotions, as hard as they can be to sit with sometimes, do eventually pass.⁠ ⁠ #journal #feelings #emotions #moments #pausejournal #pause #reflect #mindfulness #mindfulnessblog #mindfulnessblogger #blog #calm #zen #relax #simplicity⁠ ⁠ Journal stack and pencils by Pexels

Growth is such a process.. I will forever stan the comparison to butterflies 🦋 The journey from caterpillar to butterfly is a long one.. Also a really hard one and sometimes pretty disgusting too 😅 Healing is a big part of it all and here as well, we have to go through discomfort & acceptance first, so we can grow out of all of it in the end..its def no linear journey and its not always much fun - but in the end, isn’t it actually the only path that’s truly worth all those struggles and changes? To move on, grow & come closer to a better and higher version of ourself? 🤍 #thoughtsoftheday . . #lililoves#lililoveskale#creativity#art#creating#photography#aesthetics#moodboard#higherself#healthylifestyle#outofyourcomfortzone#trust#viennaigers#lifestyle#lifestyleguide#2020vibes#mindfulness#mindfulliving#fashionblog#beautyblog#mindfulnessblog#photographyblog#photographer#growth#healing#findyourself#changes#blackandwhitephotography#mindfulnesspractice

I'm feeling grateful that I can open the windows of my fifth floor apartment to see the sun bursting through and hear the chatter from surrounding apartments (including my noisy neighbour who is at present speaking loudly on the phone. Yes - I'm even grateful for him!)⁠ ⁠ #gratitude #lovingkindnessmeditation #sunburst #chatter #mindfulness #mindfulnessblog #mindfulnessblogger #blog #calm #zen #relax #simplicity⁠ ⁠ Sunburst design by sketchify

I got snap happy for the first time in a while during last year's solar eclipse. I don't have a lens that's powerful enough for shots of the sun and the moon and I'm also not knowledgeable enough on how to optimise the tools that I do have, but I enjoyed experimenting all the same.⁠ ⁠ The sun would only get picked up when there was some cloud cover. I did come away with some gorgeous shots, which you can see in my highlight. I see the clouds as waves in some of the pictures.⁠ ⁠ This was my favourite shot, right before the clouds opened up completely to clear blue skies, meaning that I had to just enjoy the full eclipse live in the moment.⁠ ⁠ That can make it even more special.⁠ ⁠ #solareclipse #photography #flow #hobby #mindfulness #mindfulnessblog #mindfulnessblogger #blog #calm #zen #relax #simplicity #inthepresentmoment
