I am in a constant battle of wishing you were still my tiny baby and being excited to watch you grow. Today, you gave me the perfect perspective on that. While crying upon finding this picture, I told you that I wished you did stay little longer. Without missing a beat, you put your hand on my face and said "but growing up is okay. I will still love you. I just get to be a big boy and have more fun and do things by myself. Does that make you happy to hear that?". You are soo wise beyond your years, Ailan Todd. I love you immensely. 💙 #AilanTodd #BabyBoy #SlowDown #WiseWords
Inhale “ok,” exhale long. I’ve found myself doing that a lot lately. It’s getting pretty serious (3X in 5 mins. kind of serious). In the time that it took me to walk to the kitchen to start making food, I had “okayed” myself 3X!! . Boo👎🏾 . And this is WITH morning slow yoga, prayer, epsom salt baths, and ALL of the tea. 🙀Imagine where I’d be without all that! . ANYWAY, I’ve talked to a few others, and they’re experiencing the same thing, so let’s talk about a few physical signs of stress so we can start moving through it together. . 1. Tension in the body 2. Tongue orientation change 3. Shallow breathing . These are all PHYSICAL warnings signs—#clues about what’s going on INSIDE, so look there first. Is there something you need to change your perspective on? Is there someone you need to talk to? Do you need more #youtime ? Go get it! . Maybe you’ve done all this, but these responses still exist. If so, check out these tools. . ~Tension Relief: Get into a place where you can fully relax. That could be at a stoplight, your desk, or on your couch. Scan your body for tension. When you identify it, release it and then breathe in and out slowly, imagining that you’re sending your #breath to that place to #soften it. Repeat as many times as you need. ~Tongue Release: Notice whether your tongue is on the roof of your mouth or (like mine lately) rolled. If so, lower it away from the roof of your mouth + allow a soft #smile to spread on your lips even if you’re not feeling it. ~Breathing: Perform alternate nostril breathing by breathing in through 1 nostril for 4 counts, holding both for 1, and then releasing to the count of 4 on the other side. Repeat for 4 breaths at least.

Seven billion people experienced today in a different way. Let that sink in! Slow down. 🖐🏻 Take a breath. 🧘🏻‍♀️ Let it ALL sink in. 🙏🏻 YOU are 1 in a billion. Believe in yourself a little more ❤️. You’re doing better than you realize. 👊🏻 #grateful #slowdown #thankful #blessed #fitness #fitlife #fit #fitnessmotivation #bepatient #bekind #bekindtoyourself #breathe #oneinabillion

Caught practising hard by a six-year-old 🎶
One of the best ways to slow down your mind is to get all of your thoughts out on paper. Whether you want to go the journal route or merely do Morning Pages, choose what fits best in your life and stick with it. If you’ve never heard of Morning Pages, it’s a sort of stream of consciousness writing exercise you do first thing in the morning. Google it and learn more if you’re not familiar with it, but it’s a simple process that is quite powerful. You could also do traditional journaling if that’s more your style. Whatever you choose, just choose something and stick with it. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor by allowing yourself time each day to slow down and sit with your thoughts. Are you more of a journaling person or a Morning Pages type? 💋
. “It’s very important to take care of yourself. Everyone's lives are so busy. Take at least an hour a day to recharge and do whatever makes you better. For grown-ups, whether it's a spa, sitting in a park with a book, or coffee, take time for yourself.” —Ana Ivanovic . Slow down, relax, seek calm, recharge, breath, journal, take a walk in nature, read a book on your patio, sip on some herbal tea slowly in the comfort of your home, have a glass of red wine with a good friend, go for a massage........... . Do something relaxing for yourself EVERY SINGLE DAY. . All this contributes to your Spiritual Health. . Without Spiritual Health, there’s no Inner Peace (Permanent Happiness). Without Inner Peace, you can’t fully thrive in life or be the best version of yourself. . Without You being present for yourself, how can You then be authentically present for others❓❓ . #driyabo #permanenthappiness #ilove #peacefulplaces #peacefulpeople and #calming things. #slowdown and #breath #youwillbefine
The week is almost done, so continue to smile (unless you don't want to), breath, and go slowly. You'll get there. #goslowly #slowdown #smile #breathe #thichnhathanh #almostthere #finishline #madeittothefinishline #believeinyourself #dontgiveup #toxicity #anxiety

“Winter reminds us that everyone and everything needs some quiet time” - Katrina Mayer ✨ I’d completely forgotten that I bought this gorgeous print by @stacieswift (check her out - her stuff is gorgeous and my house contains many of her prints/postcards/artwork) from @theblurtfoundation back when I first moved in. I found it today whilst cleaning. So I’ve hung it on my bedroom wall because I think it’s a good reminder. ✨ Things feel a bit ick right now. Work is going well. It’s very rewarding and I’m enjoying it. I’m just exhausted the rest of the time and keep finding myself curled up crying on my bed. Both my appointments this week were cancelled which probably hasn’t helped. But I think I’m generally just really exhausted and so much has happened these last few weeks. It’s rough enough coming home after months on an eating disorder ward. But it feels even harder when diagnosed with a new intolerance and trying to balance budgeting, cooking and energy levels pretty much alone. On top of going back to work and everything else. I have a couple of things on tomorrow and Saturday but the rest of the weekend will be spent sat down. I then have one more week of work before a week of annual leave where I have very few plans. I need to slow down. (PS - sorry for the weird angle. I was trying to avoid showing you my whole room). ✨ #slowdown #quiettime #fox #hedgehog #print #art #interior #decorating #mentalhealth #recovery #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #edrecovery #depression #lactosefree #dairyfree #lactoseintolerant #lactoseintolerance #project365 #365project
Slow the fuck down. NOW IS ENOUGH. HERE IS ENOUGH. We have all been convinced otherwise. We’ve all been convinced we’re missing out on life if we slow down when everyone else is bulldozing their way through life. That couldn’t be further away from the truth. One thing we often have no clue of is that there’s information we are literally NOT ABLE TO RECEIVE while going at the fast pace we’re usually going at. That’s why people are often SO confused, look outside of themselves for answers and have no inner compass game at all. When you’re confused you’re also scared. You live from victim hood. You’re in your reactive survival brain and have no clarity. WISDOM vibrates at a slower frequency than our brain waves do when we experience anxiety or we buy into drama and scarcity mindset. So we’re literally not able to be receptive to the informations that we need in the first place because we’re not a vibrational match to them. So when you feel confused and fearful just do one thing. Slow the fuck down. Slow down before you run forward. Try this and let me know. You’ll be amazed by what happens. • • • Keep in mind this I never read anywhere. It’s just intuitive notions I’m picking up. So that is why I am not citing articles. THIS is the wisdom we ALL have access to as soon as we: SLOW DOWN. #slowdown #growth

Meditation practice isn’t about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better, it’s about befriending who we are. – Ani Pema Chodron . . Day 18 of the @melting_point_hotyoga challenge brings in peace and reflection through meditation. While it may difficult to let your mind and body slow down-meditation is a great way to remember why you practice. For me, it’s a reminder that my body does amazing things every day and it is ok to give it grace and permission to rest and restore. Trane and I love to sit in the beautiful October sunshine and soak it all in. #findyourmeltingpoint #yogachallenge #meditation #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #labsofinstagram #slowdown #peace #myyogabody
The past is already gone. The future is not yet here. There’s only one moment for you to live. It’s NOW. Remember to invite stillness into your life. 🙏🏻

Always a great reminder to be gentle with yourself and give yourself permission to be.

Giving myself ‘self care’ in learning to do this now as after so much sickness I’ve realised how you got to look after yourself inside and outside. I had a Turkish hammam, a scrub and massage and facial Turkish style. It was intense laying there wanting to move but taking moments to breath and become more connected with my mind and body is what I need. What have you done for self care today? #selfcare #selfcarethreads #selfcareday #wellbeing #wellbeingwarrior #wellbeingcoach #slowdown #toughgirl100 #london #londonspa #spalondon #crystalpalacespa #marylebone #londonblogger #wellnessblogger #selflove #hammam #turkish

Last week we posted a video tour of the bus and someone asked about our clothes storage, so here’s our response. We each have a cubby of some sort. Above our bed, Philan and I each have a small cubby for all of our clothes (Philan gets the extra little cubby on the left for her sweaters). My cubby is the middle one, I prefer to roll all my clothes, shirts on top). Philan folds and rolls and has them arranged in a custom order. The boys each have a deep sliding drawer under our bed and Freya has the bottom drawer in our open wire storage bin/dresser thing. It’s not a lot of space but it works. If it doesn’t fit in your space, you don’t need it. We also have a storage container under our bed that has our rain coats and winter jackets...🚌
Slow down ! Ralentir ! Pensez aux enfants en traversant notre village... #slowdown #ralentir

Confession- I hate selfies 🤳 I have been realizing more and more how tense I hold everything- my shoulders, my neck...even my face. I laid outside in the beautiful sun for a few minutes and the sun hitting my face just made those muscles relax. I was curious what my face looked like when it felt like it was melting away in relaxation so I snapped a shot. Even when I think I’m relaxing I can still see the tension - especially between my brows. This is something I’m working so hard on- my husband has told me for 10 years that I always look tense, either tapping my feet or biting my nails, scrolling mindlessly through my phone, even my toes look stressed he says 😝 How crazy that I’ve held them tension for so long and not even realized it. What would happen if I was mindful of this tension and worked to release it??? #mindfulness #anxiety #healthanxiety #ocd #anxietyawareness #2bmindset #fitby40 #slowdown #enjoythejourney
If you feel too much, it's okay to slow down. Breathe. Learn to rest. Talk to someone who loves you. There is still hope. There is still help. There is still time. Be gentle with yourself and with others too. We are made to mend one another. 😊😊😊 #bepositive #quotes #color #purpose #bright #slowdown #god #pain #aestheticgrunge #reminder #aestheticgrungetumblr #tumblraesthetic #niche #peachy #grungetumblr #tumblraesthetics #grungeaesthetics #peachaesthetic #nudecolour #tumblrpeach #nudecolours #tumblrgrunge #nudeaesthetic #nudetumblr #feedaesthetic #aestheticfeed #nudegrunge #feedsaesthetic #aestheticfeeds #staypositive
This tree had the sun's rays shining brightly on the coloured side of it, making seem like the leaves were on fire. I love the fall. The trees prepare for dormancy while the leaves lose their chlorophyll and eventually fall, the animals stock up on food to prepare for hibernation, squirrels scavenge and hide as much food as possible close to home. Fall for humans seems to be the time of the year we go in hyper mode, school starts again, we prep for Thanksgiving and Xmas, running around like chickens with their heads cut off while the world around us slows down. This week I decided I should slow down too and practice some much needed self care. Proper, easy and dense nutrition paired with cleansing and adaptogenic herbs make my life much easier so that I can focus on sleep and exercise, as well as rest and mindfulness. What's in your self care tool kit?
Moments of clarity will come and go like tides of the ocean or phases of our moon. However the beauty of nature will always remain so long as dont forget it's there. As long as we can remember to be kind to our beautiful planet, our clarity will always come back. Take the time to ground yourself, smell the flowers, take in your surroundings, and detach yourself from the cluttered noise of metal and smog. Not for the rest of your life of course, just for a time, small breaks in daily routines can and will make a difference. #LittleMomentsMakeABigDifference #NaturePhotography #Flowers #Clarity #JustTakeAMoment #Breathe #SlowDown #StopForAMinute #GroundYourself #Nature #Green
This sweet little vintage teacup makes me smile for so many reasons! Bachelor buttons are one of my favorite flowers, I loved planting them as a child. It also reminds me to slow down, to truly enjoy my coffee rather than gulp it down (before it gets cold 😆) to savor a few still minutes.... Life is too fast paced, too busy, too hectic....take a few minutes to remind yourself what's truly, deeply important and never apologize for taking time to slow down! P.S. the keto "oatmeal" is delicious 😋 #vintage #slowdown #ketobreakfast #coffeeforthewin #workingfromhome #monat

Making a wish. ✨✨✨ Let’s continue to use whatever tools we have gathered through life thus far to discover and rediscover ourselves. To be in awe of what we discover. Again and again. This past weekend I was asked to teach in Tennessee for an amazing non-profit raising money on behalf of children needing organ transplants @cota_org 🙏🏼 @southernbendyogaandfitnessfest @heathershawdendy 💜🌈💜 @cfmiller62 🙏🏼 One of the classes I got to share was called “Artful Yoga” and it took place INSIDE 😳 of a large brass and bronze sculpture in the trees. Reflection... I LOVE the fact that - if given the chance - a tree...a sculpture, a painting...and YOGA will inspire us to sloooow down, to PAUSE...to look more closely, more deeply and to look again and again and again. We learn, we grow, hopefully we can come to see the beauty of it ALL. The sweet stuff and the not so sweet stuff. Ugh. I’m learning more this year than I can ever remember at any other time in my life. Slowing down and looking WAY more deeply. Got some good growing to do this 49th year on the planet. Feels like I have new eyes. Sending you well wishes and LOVE. ❤️ #neweyes #newlens

What is happening this second? We are being bombarded by about 11,000,000 bits of information from the senses. Our brains can only process 60. This means we experience .000055% of reality. Reality is in fact subjective. Our attention is limited. We can train our minds to attend to what we want it to. Today I walked the boardwalk downtown Christiansted for the couple hundredth time. Tempting myself to stay in the moment, I quietly and slowly looked for things I had never noticed before. It was the most peaceful walk I’ve had in town for months. What are we doing with the precious natural resource of our own attention?
