RELAXING EVENING WIND-DOWN
1. Inhale slowly through the nose to the count of four. Bring your awareness to the expansion of your chest and to the sound and rhythm of your breath.
2. Pause at the end of your inhale for seven seconds. Rather than focusing on holding your breath think of it as resting your breath. (The idea of holding the breath often causes us to tense up, the goal is to relax before the exhale).
3. Now slowly exhale and let go of all of the air in your lungs for a count of eight, keeping your face, mouth and jaw soft and relaxed.
Repeat this exercise for at least three rounds or until your stress, anxiety, fear or overwhelm starts to dissolve.
Tips: If you are struggling with the number of breaths or find it to easy then experiment with different counts and find something that feels energising and nourishing for you.
THE OM JOURNAL: MINDFULLY CURATED MEDIA
The OM Journal is an invitation to meet your life with presence, enthusiasm and curiosity. Our articles and free guides are there to encourage you to self-reflect and discover more about yourself and the world. It’s not about getting it right, but rather checking in with yourself and deepening your self-awareness.
Deepen your practice and foster mindfulness beyond the mat. Yoga will create space in both your body and mind - the expansion will leave you with a deep sense of freedom within.
Meditation comes with many benefits. It calms the mind to help with stress and increase focus. It has immediate effects when seeking better sleep, inner peace and more energy.
There are various aspects to good health, however the two major players are a nourished body and a calm contented mind. If either become unbalanced they both become unbalanced.
When we are accepting of who we authentically are, while speaking to ourselves kindly, it is then we can expand into our highest and brightest selves and start living life on purpose.
Choose quality over quantity. Avoiding the clutter of un-necessary burdens, expectations and stuff that often leads to overwhelm, stress, fatigue and dis-contentment.

CONSERVATION + CHANGE
Common sense tells us that the way we are dominating and destroying the planet is not sustainable. Proactive people are choosing to be part of the solution rather than the problem.
When travelling tread lightly. When profits are chosen over ethics, then animal cruelty, below living wages and planet destruction becomes the normal way to do business.
