Happy First Snow Day in Leeds, UK

I just LOVE the magical view of snow on Nature……this morning I woke up to this wonderful surprise!

It was already in the forecast for this week, but still it was a very pleasant surprise to wake up this morning and see this stunning view!

What I really like about this kind of snow weather….it seems so Quiet and Peaceful outside….there is this typical Silence some how….you know what I mean? For me snow has something Magical about itself and can so enjoy looking at it!

Though I do feel it is pretty early in winter for us to having snow already, I also believe there will be more to come this winter. Who knows, we might getting a very cold and harsh Winter this year.

I’m basically not very good with cold, I just don’t like being cold…I like to feel warm and cosy and wrapped up ;-) But I Love to look at the snow on the trees and bushes for ages, and make beautiful photos.

Unfortunately I didn’t had time for it today, but the best thing would have been to go out, in Nature, a Park or so, and fully enjoy the snow in all her Glory and Beauty. Well, probably more days of snow will come before we’re heading to Spring, so hopefully next time I’ll be able to do a bit of Snow Forest hiking ;-)

Keep yourself Warm!

Easy moments of Meditation

“Even a few minutes of a silent and peaceful mind is Meditation”     Angelique Mol ღ

People often think that you Need to “make time” for meditation, to sit or lay down, soft relaxation music in the background, or even a guided meditation to listen to….

But there are so many different ways of “easy meditation”. Meditation is all about Empty the Mind, Silence the Mind and Creating a Peaceful Mind. Getting rid of worries and stress, calm down and relax.

When you’re out in Nature and watch a beautiful Sunset or Sunrise and watch this moment in silence, without any other thoughts on your mind, that’s already a form of Meditation.

When you are being Creative, like drawing, colouring and painting….this is also very Meditative as you let your Mind be free from other thoughts and are connected to the other side of your brain, your Creative side instead of your Logical side.

You don’t even Have to close your eyes to Meditate, though for some people this works the best to relax and empty the Mind. As long as you silence your Thoughts and Create a Peaceful Mind, you are in a Meditative state.

It is in that way also not Needed to Meditate for hours, a simply 10 minutes Meditation can do wonders. You have a stressful moment at work and need to break free from it? Give yourself 10 minutes by yourself, preferably in a silent or peaceful environment, and let it all Go and Flow. After these 10 minutes you feel Much better!

Myself, I like to Meditate for about 10-15 minutes before I go to sleep. This helps me to sleep more peaceful, as I empty my Mind from all the thoughts and attention from the day. It prevents restless sleeping and “weird” dreaming as well. Often we have strange and stressful dreams as lots of thoughts are still running through our Mind when we go to sleep. So why not give your Self a moment of Peace and Silence before laying yourself for a good night sleep.

I noticed, within my experience, when I Meditate every day, even for a short time, I feel totally different, I feel better, more relaxed and don’t even let stress come close to me. It seems I am better guarded to stress and “negative” thoughts. I can think more clear and with Peace which also helps me to make better choices and decisions when I need to make one.

Allow Meditation in your daily Life and enjoy the Inner Peace!
