Article: Calming Vibes
This is a simple ritual you can perform whenever you wash your hands and feel you need to take a moment to breathe. It's imperative to remember to do so when you least feel like slowing down. Such as when having a busy day at work, when at home with squabbling children, or when dealing with demanding mothers-in-law.
Before you wash your hands, slowly count down—three, two, one—then take a deep mindful breath.
As you pick up the soap and lather your hands, close your eyes while imagining walking into a lavender field swaying in a light breeze. The scent of lavender envelops you as butterflies dance around you, whispering their dreams…
Listen to the sound of the lavender field—silence only broken by the calming sounds of birdsong and the gentle breeze rustling the lavender.
Then step back into your body, and feel the soap and water on your hands.
After that, open your eyes and bring yourself back home—your true home in the here and now.
