Do you sometimes feel like others are the definition of zen and you just can’t figure out how they stay calm and serene when all you wanna do is flip out? I feel you, it can be annoying to encounter these rare beings… Still, you might feel like you want whatever they’re having! Most of the time, let’s be honest, mindful people have less stress, less drama, fewer health issues, and simply more peace of mind. So, in order to get your own zen mode on, I have compiled a list of simple things you can try to bring a little more peace and quiet into your life. Of course, there is no magic pill for becoming Dalai Lama level mindful but there are things that can make you feel more balanced overall. 896
Happy Valentine’s Day!
“To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.” – Criss Jami, Venus in Arms 833
Where skiing and spa meets conscious sustainability
Living in Switzerland, skiing is a big part of our lives. Martin is an avid skier and snowboarder, always looking for a ski tour or a steep hill to tackle. I, on the other hand, love my skiing to be chill and meditative, preferring slopes that lead through forests and where a helmet is optional 😉 So when we felt the itch to go away for a couple days, we looked for an eco hotel that would offer lots of skiing opportunities, some relaxation time for the two of us all while being green and sustainable. We found it at Biohotel Bergzeit in the tiny village of Zöblen, Tyrol and we absolutely loved our time there! 772
