The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #5

What a week! There must be something in the air lately because I keep hearing of people stating that they're in a funk they can't seem to shake, and I, too, have just not felt good! That being said, I have found solace in reading, and have managed to grasp snippets of time here and… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #5

A Year of Mindfulness – 25 – Smells

This week, I had to select some strong-smelling objects and at moments throughout the day close my eyes and breathe in the scent, focusing my attention purely on this. Now, there was nothing on the task card to ascertain whether these should be enjoyable scents - but given that I was to revisit the scent numerous times… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 25 – Smells

The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #4

I don't know what's going on lately but life feels as though it's going faster than I can keep up with.

Happy Wednesday! We're halfway through the week, and if that's not an excuse for wine, I don't know what is! Seriously, I am aware that it's not great to wish away the week like I do every Wednesday, and technically I don't really do it, I just love weekends so much that I get over-excited as… Continue reading The 5 Minute Coffee Corner: July #2

A Year of Mindfulness – 23 – Music

Here it is. The DREAM task. Week 23 - the best week of the challenge so far! I am not exaggerating when I say I live for music. It is such an integral part of my life, and when I pulled this task from the jar, I felt like I'd hit the jackpot! Play a… Continue reading A Year of Mindfulness – 23 – Music
