Breathwork for calming and easing anxiety
The breath is mighty powerful and has such a huge impact on the way we feel. It can transform a very anxious situation to something more easeful (ever been annoyed by someone who tells you to "just breathe" when you’re stressed out? There’s good reason for their intentions even though it surely makes for an eyeroll bonanza 🙄!)
So here’s a video of a breathwork practice i use regularly (especially at airports after problematic moments transitioning through the unnecessarily exhausting and dehumanising process of immigration 😒 looking at you Bergen Flesland every damn time 😞) , which I hope will be centring and meditative + useful for relaxation and grounding. It could also be useful for anxiety and stress, so feel free to try this out at any time and see how you feel.
You will need: Floor space to lay down - feel free to luxe it up as you like with blankets, cushions etc. 🧖🏽♀️💅🏾
Really hope that this is useful for you.
Let me know how you go! Thanks for practicing with me! 💗

fancy a gigantic “lately” scrapbook update + diary of my summertime moments? expect a behind the scenes gander at my inner landscape (not a euphemism), news updates, resources, personal photos, peach outfits + a playlist!
resilience as action.
hope as practice.
Slow jam Sunday. Even though it’s not raining, still a forever fave + we get the metaphor, right?
So back in 2016 i was going through a particularly tough time. not so hopeful to say the least. some are often surprised to hear that, in light of the work i was doing those years. but to anyone reading who is moving through dark days, i know it might seem naff for me to say, but i’ma say it anyway, i hope you can read this and believe things will get better. i believe in you, and i admire and cheer you on for showing up to meet this day. i know things can feel hopeless, perhaps dark and frightening, but you will get through this. i promise, you can and you will.
A side effect to the gathering of copious amounts of things i love, admire, respect and adore, is that i wonder if it’s too much. Replace “it’s” with “i’m”. Cause that’s at the root, right?
I wonder if i overwhelm with sharing. I- just- get- SO - enthusiastic about things.

In the last few days alone, Gatwick airport air traffic control computers went down, the internet was out in our entire district for the day, numerous apps and platforms with glitches or completely down across the world (the last time happened on the last Mercury Retrograde in March) and is the sat nav issue resolved yet? I mean...the energy is quite something! Have you observed anything?
Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.
What do you think - should we take a trip?!
