Thoughts – Tip Two

2018-03-25-Muttz_87

As we move into the holiday season (gulp) I will post a few health tips, and gentle reminders to help keep us present and focused on those things that really matter. Life is crazy enough, so if you need to move inward, give yourself permission to do so.

Thought number two – Take walks, often with friends, partners and alone.

I have been walking a lot these days. It helps me to clear my head, adds a splash of color to my cheeks and reminds me what a beautiful city I live in. Don’t be afraid to walk alone, or to leave your family for a few moments to breathe in your surroundings and return with a renewed sense of self. Walking has the power to re-frame our mindset and walking or hiking with a great group of friends can lift the spirit beyond measure!

Thought number One

Eat more food from the Earth and less food from a package or a box.

 

What are you grateful for?

A few nights a week, as we gather around our family table, we pose the simple question, “What are you grateful for?” It is very basic, but it provides us with a nice daily practice to focus on as a family.

As we all state three things we are most grateful for that day or in general, the answers never cease to surprise me. We have come to realize that our children are never grateful for the things they have, but rather the simple aspects of their lives that bring them joy, comfort or stability.

On a regular basis, you can hear our children, or us saying the following:

I am grateful for….

having enough.

for my family.

for living in Switzerland.

that there is no war in this country.

that we have pets.

for a warm bed.

And so, we encourage our readers to take a moment to place gratitude in the forefront of your lives and witness what happens.
