Yoga : Staying mindful over Xmas

Yoga Xmas

I’m writing this on a Sunday evening with warm feet and kind soul; soon I’ll put together the finishing touches to a comforting Sunday Dinner and eat with the man who makes my eyes sparkle.

This is what mindfulness over the most busy, expensive and sometimes stressful time of year feel’s like to me. The thing I take the greatest delight in is the fact it’s wholly unique and we don’t have to settle for another persons idea of ‘a happy place‘.

Fruit : Weight loss friend or foe?
