A Moment of Calm
A Moment of Calm
Sometimes, life can be a bit hectic. It can all get a bit much. And in those times, often the thing to do, no matter how much you might want to fight against it, is just stop. It seems frustrating sometimes though, doesn't it? Quite often the point when you need to stop is when you might feel like you've got far too much to do. But hey, you can't pour from an empty cup.
This week has been Mental Health Awareness week, and so perhaps on this Sunday morning of all Sunday mornings, you can take this as your sign to at some point today take a minute for a cuppa, or read a chapter of a book, or even just take the time to cook yourself a lovely meal. Whatever a moment of calm might be for you, we find that it's always helpful to set the mood. Maybe on some peaceful music or a podcast, pop some fairy lights on, or our favourite: light some candles.
St Eval's aim as a brand is to bring a little piece of the outdoors inside, which we agree they do extremely well. Nature can be so relaxing, so choose a scent and get that flame going! The Tranquillity scent would be a great one to choose in line with today's theme (that one is Lizzie's favourite at the moment), as would the Lavender tealights. But all of the scents are glorious. Lindz' favourite is the Apple & Elderflower, Em's is the Grapefruit & Lime, and Amelia loves the Vintage Rose scent. Although we all love the wildly popular Bay & Rosemary too of course.
Other ways that we at Daisy Park like to 'take a minute' are: having a cuppa! We always try to make sure we make time to whack the kettle on mid-morning and stop for a minute to enjoy it if we can. Then there's going for walks, listening to music, putting a good TV show on, reading, having a nap, just to name a few.
