Hi my dear ones!
I am trying to get back into the swing of blogging again and I figured that sharing a monthly wrap up in the form of questions and answers, would be a nice way to do it. This way you can perhaps get to know me a little bit better and see what I was up to in April! 🙂
APRIL WRAP UP
Favourite book(s): “The Likeness: by Tana French (paperback) & Becoming by Michelle Obama (audio book).
Favourite music: “Hope” by Tom Rosenthal. A great tune that fits the period we’re living in just right.
Favourite movie: “The Aeronauts” with Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne
Biggest highlight: Moving out from the house where I lived for nearly 3 years and moving out to a brand new house with a big sunny balcony!
Three things that made me very happy during the month of April:
- Starting the Easter Sunday with an online live Yoga class and getting my sister to join in
- Seeing my boyfriend after like 6 weeks
- Getting to appreciate nature more as a result of of my regular runs outside due to quarantine
Biggest realisation: There is this self-principle that has been ruling my life for as far as I can remember: “It is all okay as long as I do my best.” I apply this principle to everything I do and this is what, countless times, has helped me to succeed at achieving what I’ve set my mind to. However, even though this is what pushes me forward and helps me to power through difficult times, this also puts me under the constant pressure of having to give it my best every single time; which, in all honesty, can be extremely tiring at times.
The best habit I got into: Doing a live Yoga Nidra session with a friend of mine every Sunday evening. For those who don’t know, Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that induces that “going to sleep” feeling. The idea is to enter in the stage between waking and sleeping whilst remaining conscious. I seriously can’t tell you how relaxing Yoga Nidra is. I love how “whole”, grounded and peaceful I feel after each session.
Something I absolutely loved to: Make my house feel more like home. A few examples of how I did this was to declutter the space around me and to plant some herbs and flowers.
The best thing I did for myself: I was very consistent with my yoga practice and deliberately carved out time for it 2-3 times a week.
.. and this is it guys! I hope this post has also somewhat served as a reminder of how important it is to do things that spark joy in our life. Now, would you like to share some of your favourites from the month of April? As always, would love to hear from you! 🙂
