Unfinished Sentence. Last week was a bit chaotic with Lockdown 3.0 and trying to find new routines and rhythm for many of us. This week is a new week! So here is an unfinished sentence to reflect on how you would complete it.

Tuesday 12th Jan

soul moments.  At some point this week pause as you begin to make a hot drink. Turn off the auto-pilot and think about each step of making the drink. Watch the water as you pour it in, watch the drink swirling around as you stir it with a spoon. Watch the steam rising from the surface and feel the warmth. Then as you sip your drink, stop and savour the taste, the feel of the liquid and the warmth, really saviour it.

These small moments are soul moments they are good for our wellbeing.

"STOP, SAVOUR, REALLY SAVOUR, wellbeing"
