Tip of the month:
“Be content with what you have. Rejoice in the way things are. When you realise nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” Lao Tzu
It can be all too easy to get caught up in what’s coming next – the job, the house, the holiday – that you lose sight of all the amazing things you already have right in front of you. Take a minute to appreciate a highlight of your day, whether it’s a an inspiring quote, a good friend, a beautiful place, a moment in nature, or a delicious meal. Whatever brings you joy in the moment is worth recognising and feeling grateful for and it’s sure to attract more of the same to you. Remember: where focus goes, energy flows! Energise what fuels your soul!
Wishing you health and happiness,
