#WellnessWednesday – Some of my scents I find soothing and relaxing

dav

These are just some of my different scents in the photo above, that I find soothing, that helps me relax:

  • Yardley rose perfume
  • The Original Champneys Health Spa – Summer Dream Rewarding Body Lotion
  • Relaxing lavender and coconut oil hydrating spritz
  • Relaxing lavender temple balm

 

As well as the above, I also like my scented candles, or scented oil in my diffuser.

And I find the smell and taste of Earl Grey tea comforting too.

What scents do you like, that feel soothing and relaxing?

Blog post re-share: Morning has broken — Peacock Poetry

A great post. Do take a read and get inspired.

Every morning is really a fresh, new beginning to live life according to your values. In the last couple of months I have developed a ritual of doing a short meditation before getting out of bed followed by setting myself an intention for the day ahead. This habit is really helping me to feel grateful […]

Blog post re-share: My Mind’s Junk-Drawer — Untangled

I love this post when I came across it and it helped to look at myself in a different way. It made me smile at what was my irritations, until now. It gave me some perspective and not to get too annoyed with myself. My mind has a junk-drawer and I sometimes cannot find, or lose stuff in my junk drawer.

Do you have a junk-drawer?

We have a “junk-drawer” in our kitchen. It’s the drawer where coupons, batteries, a hammer, screwdriver, pliers, tape measures, a flashlight, matches, lighters, cat-nip, and the assorted 1/2 used birthday candle packages lay scattered about. It’s a small drawer, but it seems, it has the room of Mary Poppins magic bag. It holds everything and […]

My other two colouring books

So here are my other two colouring books I said I would mention, since this post, “Adult colouring books.”

“Enchanted Forest” and “Secret Garden,” are both by Johanna Basford.

The pages are so detailed inside and these two are going to last me for some time. They are worth the money. As well as colouring, there are things to find, or do. I’m doing the colouring first and will go back to the puzzles after, except for the pages that involve adding more detail them, which those I will do as I go along.

This photo below, is a couple of pages out of the “Enchanted Forest” colouring book.

The photo below, is a couple of pages out of the “Secret Garden” colouring book.

I have mostly used felt tips when colouring these pages, but at times I have used pencil crayons. Although the paper is good quality, I would not recommend Sharpies felt tips, as these will bleed through to next page. Felt tips I have been using that are really good and do not bleed through are Staedtler and Stabilo.

Adult colouring books

Adult colouring books have been out a few years and they are still popular. They can help towards better mental health, because they give you something to focus on. I have been using colouring books for a couple of years, or slightly longer and towards end of last year, I was relying on them heavily after tragic events, to get through the day. (The last picture certainly reflects that very dark period in my life.)
These pages out of my colouring books were single-sided, so I used mainly sharpie pens for colouring in, but at times I used pencil crayons too.
I said last year that I would share some of my colourings one day. Although later than planned, here they are.

 

In a later post, I will share two colouring books I am now currently using.

Blog post share: “The Four Elements of a Balanced Life” — Perpetual Change

A blog post shared. Do visit this bog and continue reading there, a very interesting post.

As a kid, I used to love watching Avatar the Last Airbender, a cartoon series about a young avatar who had to restore balance in the world. Although it was just a TV show, one of the lessons it taught me is how there is something we can learn from each of the four basic elements […]
