It’s August and I can’t quite get my head around it. The past month has been a blur with life revolving around my hip surgery. But I’m now three days past the 2 week mark and am so happy to say I’m doing well!
I often find myself dreaming of how things used to be, but what I’ve learned is that it’s not about going back—it’s about moving forward and one of the best ways to move forward is to celebrate the small things (which really are big things).
So today my musings centre around savouring the small things .. wonderful small things I’ve discovered in the past couple years .. like listening to podcasts. But it’s not self-help podcasts or how to be creative podcasts or relaxation podcasts, nope. I listen mainly to True Crime podcasts (hides face in embarrassment : ) but there you have it! Do you listen to podcasts? If you do please share your favourites .. I’m all ears!
What is “Forest Bathing”
In 1982, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries created the term shinrin-yoku, which translates to “forest bathing” or “absorbing the forest atmosphere.” The practice encourages people to simply spend time in nature — no actual bathing required.
So what are you savouring these days? I’d love to hear! Thank you for being here xo
