Why practice mindfulness?
Why I practice mindfulness? I am not a naturally positive person. I used to focus on the bad, negative, and wrong. I spent so much time worrying, ruminating and loads of time over planning.

Try if you can to maintain a fine thread of awareness, listening to the teacher’s voice and instructions. During yoga nidra you enter aContinue reading “What is Yoga Nidra?”

This one seems to always need a bit more help sticking, adding more honey- or sometimes a bit of water helps. The good news is this one seemsContinue reading “Healthy cookie recipe”
