00It’s a trend in our society that many people want to slow down their pace, live more in harmony with nature and have more gratitude for life’s simple pleasures.
A friend once said to me when I was complaining about my lack of time for what I really want to do, “Everyone has the same amount of hours, 24. It’s what you prioritise.”

“Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, Is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.” – May Sarton, poet/memoirist/novelist

Summer will soon transition into autumn… school runs and work will bring back routine into our daily lives… Use your garden, terrace or nearby park as a source to practise mindfulness and bring back the energy of summer into the autumn. A place surrounded by flowers or nature can be a place for recreation, relaxation and joy. Watering plants, removing the weeds and being amongst the butterflies or bumblebees…

Don’t forget to bring some self-picked flowers, greenery or branches indoors to bring that peaceful energy inside (better not from the park though…).

If I made more time for mindfulness, I imagine it’d go something like this: chilled evenings sitting on blankets in the garden by candlelight.

This would be a beautiful palette inspiration for an interior, don’t you agree?
