I don’t know about you but my life really does seem to have increased in speed. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. Which is why I often remind myself of what Gandhi said “There is more to life than increasing its speed.”
What can often allow me to slow down and re-connect is the rituals I have built up when making tea. The ritual of starting with watching the water boil – yes I know strange but watching water boil is just fantastic. Through to pouring the tea in the cup and sitting down and taking some time to concentrate on the taste and the aroma through to imagining if vintage items could talk what would they say!
So that is just one of my many rituals, feel free to use it or share your own.
