People describe me as being a positive person so I thought I would share some tips I use to stay positive.  Of course, sometimes I also find it difficult to stay positive and upbeat about things – sometimes you just have to feel down and let yourself have a good cry.  But on most days, I think that I push myself to be positive.  It’s a habit that was passed to me be my parents […]

It’s the simple things that make me happy… Infinite cups of Dilmah tea. Currently, Darjeeling and Ceylon Supreme are my favourite teas. I’m convinced that my obsession with tea stems from Sri Lankan heritage.  It has to be in my genes or something! If I don’t have a cup of tea first thing in the morning, don’t expect a happy version of me! Naps on the weekend. A long workweek plus blogging and exercise makes […]

Exercise – start by walking, then work up to jogging, running […]

Books

These are books I read and loved a little while ago.  Nothing makes me happier than a good book and a beverage or platter of food.  So I have paired each lovely and heart warming book with a delicious beverage or meal to devour while reading.  It’s not good for your mindfulness practice to read and eat/drink at the same time – but it’s good for your soul and happiness. 1. ‘The Help’ by Kathryn […]

When I was really little I didn’t eat a lot.  My mum says I only ate when I was hungry and had small portion sizes because that’s all that would fit in my little stomach.  I also ate what I was given – most of the time.  Somewhere along the way, that changed and I began to eat more.  I gained a little weight, started eating and exercising and lost it all, and gained weight […]
