In a world where it's so easy to fall into a trap of comparison, it's no surprise that a lot of us have that feeling of being under pressure. Why do we have to strive for more and better?
There is so much power in being present, so much freedom when letting go of what happened or might happen. Simply focusing on the seconds as they tick along. We then start to appreciate what is happening right now and the opportunities we are given each and every single day to be ourselves.
Journaling can be such a powerful tool to reconnect with yourself. Maybe you have tried it, maybe you are doing it, or maybe it is something completely new to you. Here are three simple steps to help you with your journaling journey.
Besides all the goal setting there is one thing that I find much more important: GRATITUDE.

How great would it be if more people were just happy with who they are? Not comparing to others, not talking down on themselves, not doubting themselves? But instead have the inner strength, the trust, and love to look after themselves and live life simply as the wonderful human being they are...?
If you haven't already considered biking, I highly recommend giving it a go. There are so many benefits to it and it's heaps of fun! You really can go places with your good old pushbike.

Nusa Lembongan - a tiny island, yet so beautiful and full of life that it's definitely worth a visit. Spending an entire month there while doing my Yoga Teacher Training was an experience I wouldn't want to miss.
What’s more important than being healthy? In a recent yoga class a lady in her 90s opened my eyes even more to what it means to truly looking after ourselves.
Sometimes a little doubt can do magic! Listening to our own inner voice is often a lot more helpful than searching for an answer from someone else.
