Relaxing. Do we Fit Girls know what that word means? Well, it has never been on the top of my to-do list. Until now, that is. Maybe it’s that I’m getting older, or maybe it’s the phase I’m currently in – mother with number two on the way. I’m not really sure, but I needed some true peace and quiet. I really had to recharge my batteries and I wanted to rejuvenate my inspiration. So I treated myself to a mindfulness weekend. I would love to share some mindfulness exercises with you that I learned and that are really valuable and special to me. And that are really easy to integrate into everyone’s daily life.
Mindfulness is one of those fashionable terms that you see being used just about everywhere. I did a quick Google search, but the huge amount of hits made my head spin. I didn’t want to go to a monastery and wasn’t looking for something that was very spiritual. Fortunately a good friend of mine had heard positive reviews of Lighthouse works. The weekend program contained yoga, meditation, mindfulness workshops and guided walks. And the weekend was in a really good location, in the middle of the forest, in a luxurious spa hotel ;-). I was sold and booked immediately.
Just me, myself and I
Most weekend trips I go on are with my best friends or with my family but I had to go on this weekend alone. It was pretty scary in the beginning, because I didn’t know what to expect and what if I was the only one not that spiritual inclined or yoga minded? Surprisingly (to me), most women were just like me. Modern, hard working, ambitious, in love with life, but also struggling with issues like pleasing others, always wanting more out of life, not aware of the moment we are living in now and always busy with tomorrow. I was so ready for this.
