‘Meditating is about being in the moment, trying not to think about anything ,’ says Eva. ‘Let go of your thoughts, allow them to fly away and leave your mind clear.’ Create a calm, therapeutic space to practise in and ease yourself into a new day with candles and scented herbs like lavender and sage.
Take comfort in food
Find rituals that soothe you and practise them when you can. ‘When I started baking, every cake failed but I kept trying,’ says Eva. ‘Baking is not just about the finished product, it’s a warm, safe feeling I try to create. The process of getting better at something can be therapeutic in itself. I enjoy keeping everything in the right order, mixing ingredients according to a recipe, and seeing them become a cake or bread.’
Transform your rushed cup of tea into a more nourishing morning ritual. Set up everything you need and allow the tea leaves time to brew. Use the moment to pause, sit and unwind.
