An introduction to slow living - Chllenge gratitude: from discouraged to amazed in 30 days

If you ever want to refine your ability to see the beautiful, but don't really know how to go about it, it's super simple.

Here's a little challenge that will help you incorporate one of the best positive habits of your life ;)


Would you like to be more satisfied with your life?

Tsé, going to bed at night while going over the course of your day and feeling that that's it, that's good and that's perfect! It's not always easy, with all the stress, the mental load and the pressure that we are under, we have such a full head. Again, it would be necessary to be able to know how to do it.

You know the brain is capable of extraordinary things, but unsuspected. We could reach them, but sometimes we simply ignore the instructions.

How it works?

Every morning, or evening, take a little 5 minutes for your gratitude journal, by making a simple list of the things you are grateful for.

It is not a question of quantity, but of quality.

It can be things that happened during the day or in your life in general.

From the support and love you receive from loved ones, to the recognition of having something to eat in the fridge.

The goal of this challenge is to start making a habit of seeing how lucky you are every day.

Week 01


So we start today! Not tomorrow, or when it's going to happen. Today! Procrastination, we know full well what it gives, so...

To get started, choose how you want to show your gratitude.

Personally I have a completely separate journal, just for my gratitude lists. I prefer it that way, because I find that the diary, once started, reflects in itself a vibration of all beauty and I can refer to it on cloudy days.

Some people prefer to keep their gratitude journal on their nightstand and take notes before bed, others while sipping their first morning coffee. That is unique to you! The important thing is consistency; always going there at the same time during the day will facilitate the integration of the habit.

Week 02

You will already have seven entries in your journal, so try to take the time to think about each one. to see what this experience brings you so far. That should motivate you to keep going.

You can stick to five minutes of gratitude a day.

There will be days when nothing good comes to mind. In this time, try to turn the situations into positive ones.

For example, maybe you spent 1h15 in traffic and your boss was furious that you were late, but it gave you 75 minutes to think about your file. So one thing happened, everything was settled in less than 5 minutes or else, you finished this project which did not obtain the desired results, but you had the courage to go through with it and dare unveil it.

There is always an advantage to everything. Even to bad. By practicing gratitude, we develop this muscle that sees life on the bright side and we can only be better off.

Week 03

Your gratitude journal is always going to be good, so this week keep brainstorming and adding new things you're grateful for, but also adding pictures and affirmations to go along with your entries. Nothing complex! Just to deepen the experience and put your senses into action even more.

Week 04

Now is the time to put your gratitude into action.

It's nice to be able to feel that satisfaction inside of us, but Demonstrating it to the people around us increases the happiness felt tenfold.

So, as you continue to record your thoughts daily in your gratitude journal, be sure to also write down acts of kindness that could be done to thank those around you.

Maybe your colleague took over to help you, or maybe your sister brought you coffee at work, or your son took the time to empty the dishwasher!

Write a little thank you in your journal about it and don't forget to thank them in person and let them know how much better they make your life!

IN PRACTICE THE CHALLENGE?

Teach a trick to the little wild monkey that lives in our head.
Basically, that's the challenge.

We must first tame it and then show it how to behave in our own house.

By directing it, you will begin to become more aware of all the good that is around you and to focus your energy on it. Because we know: what we focus on expands.

The more you see the good, because it's often just a matter of perspective, the more you'll find that feeling of satisfaction.

But, like anyone else, the little monkey has to practice before he can do his trick perfectly. This is why habit and repetition will be your allies.

So, ready to marvel?

"...in addition to being the most Pinterest of all beverages, the relief it brings to face the changing seasons, its beneficial powers for your health, and its spicy aromas uplifting for the morale will offer you the pinnacle of self-care! »


Phew! The winter temperatures are beginning to be felt more and more. I don't know about you, but the colds don't end here. My little wool is no longer enough to keep me warm and the desire to go back on vacation is omnipresent.

On the other hand, I discovered THE natural product you need to face the cold season, coupled with a generous, and oh so comforting, dose of self-care.

If you haven't heard of golden milk yet, this is THE DRINK of the hour. A fantastic recipe that you can prepare in less than 10 minutes.

Normal, with all its properties, this creamy, latte-like drink I promise you will provide you with the warmth you need on those extremely cold or mild, but humid and uncomfortable winter days.


Where does the golden milk come from?

Golden milk is a traditional Ayurvedic drink made from turmeric root (or ground turmeric), milk, black pepper and oil.

However, most recipes also add other healthy ingredients such as fresh or ground ginger root.

GOLDEN MILK RECIPE
INGREDIENTS

.

- 2 ½ cups of vegetable drink, or milk
- 1 cinnamon stick (or 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon)
- 2 inches sliced ​​fresh turmeric, or 1 ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 inch sliced ​​fresh ginger, or ½ teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- A pinch of black pepper
- 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or honey (or more, to taste)

OPTIONAL: A pinch of cardamom and star anise

STEPS


1. Place milk, cinnamon stick, turmeric, ginger, coconut oil and black pepper in a small saucepan.

2. Cook, stirring frequently, until hot but not boiling. *

3. Taste and add your favorite sugar, to taste.

4. If you used turmeric and fresh ginger, pass your preparation through a sieve.

5. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon and enjoy!

PS You can make it in larger quantities and keep it for a few days without any problem, in order to reheat it later.

IMPORTANT NOTES

*DO NOT BOIL: This is intentional because, according to this article, long-term cooking of turmeric can lead to a loss of curcumin, an important molecule in turmeric.

PEPPER : Our bodies are unable to absorb curcumin well when we consume it alone. Combining it with black pepper makes organic turmeric available, that is to say, better assimilated by the body thanks to one of its active components, piperine; hence its importance.

OIL : For millennia, in the practice of Ayurveda, golden milk has been made with a little ghee because curcumin has low water solubility. So, for us to benefit from its full potential, turmeric must come into contact with oil or another fatty substance. We use coconut oil because it's more readily available, but if you have ghee, don't hesitate!


Why should turmeric be your BFF ?

The secret of this recipe is mainly due to turmeric, the spice that is the star of Ayurvedic medicine* thanks to its incredible properties. It is because of curcumin, a molecule contained in turmeric, that we owe it its health properties. Here are some properties attributed to it:

  • Anti-inflammatory effect,
  • antioxidant effect,
  • Fight against various infections and strengthen the immune system (thanks to its antibacterial properties),
  • Help maintain glowing skin
  • would improve the intestinal flora,
  • Could have a preventive effect in the fight against the loss of cognitive functions (memory),
  • Would help with digestion.

Turmeric has a nice warm, earthy taste with a bit of citrus bitterness. It tastes very soothing to the throat, especially when mixed with other ingredients like ginger, cinnamon, milk and oil, but has a comforting effect too!

If you want to learn more about its benefits, this article will teach you a lot. However, like most things in life, turmeric should be consumed in moderation. It is therefore recommended not to consume more than one teaspoon of ground turmeric spice per day.

Although called a "superfood", it should also be noted that turmeric is difficult to absorb. However, this thousand-year-old recipe has managed to offset its greatest weaknesses by adding other ingredients (see important notes at the bottom of the recipe).

MARSEILLE SOAP
The reputation of Marseille soap (made with 72% olive oil) is well established, it is probably the most popular of all the soaps in the world. Extra pure and biodegradable, it has been made the old-fashioned way by hand, in a cauldron, for hundreds of years. There are endless recipes on the web for natural cleansers based on this soap, as much for laundry, home, shaving, etc!

Without palm oil, without animal fat, without perfume, without dye. What else do you want?

For the recipe, it is important to use a real Marseille soap, because regular soaps (with added glycerin) will not allow your laundry to remain liquid.

Week 01


So we start today! Not tomorrow, or when it's going to happen. Today! Procrastination, we know full well what it gives, so...

To get started, choose how you want to show your gratitude.

Week 02

STEPS



1. Boil water in a saucepan.
2. Add grated soap to boiling water, stir well.
3. Once the soap has completely melted, turn off the heat.
4. Off the heat, add the baking soda and the soda crystals.
5. Leave to stand and stir occasionally to loosen foam and prevent mixture from settling.
6. Once the detergent is very cold, remove the excess foam and pour into a jug.

OPTIONAL : Add a few drops of essential oils.

LITTLE TIP: Shake well before each use and enjoy the happiness of a homemade product, made with love! Looking forward to hearing your impressions :)
