We all like to live life to the fullest, that much is clear. We spend every day in pursuit of experiencing the things we love most, but our routine’s don’t make it easy. From early mornings that make us lose sleep, to traffic jams that stress us out and make us late for work, to multitasking at home because we’re halfway through making a meal and we need to get the kids ready. At Velarte we know you that enjoyment is key and that’s why we want to help you leave aside the daily stress and replace it with the good things in life.
How exactly do we do that?
There are many ways to achieve this. One of them is to focus on the present and let go of past and future worries. A philosophy known as mindfulness. At Velarte we put it into practice to charge our body and mind with positive energy and so we get to enjoy the best that life has to offer.
How can we get started? To get you started, here are a few tips to carry out during your daily routine:
- One minute of deep breathing: focus on your breathing for just one minute. This is an ideal exercise to connect with your body. To achieve this connection, follow this simple exercise: breathe slowly and deeply through your nose, sucking in air from your abdomen and holding your breath before expelling air through your mouth. It’s as easy as that. Repeat the exercise several times and go about your day in full mindfulness.
- Sensory eating: enjoy food and take a conscious tour of how it activates your senses. A great way to put this into practice is with Velarte’s baked goods. Take a snack and think about how its ingredients are mixed, take note of the unique texture, awaken your sense of smell with its natural aroma, listen to the crunch when you bite into it and enjoy the taste of goodness.
- Physical exercise: This is a perfect and healthy practice to get started in mindfulness as we focus our attention on three key aspects such as breathing, posture and movement. Focus on breathing correctly to be able to train smoothly, feel the movement of your body and adopt the correct posture at all times. Enjoy your favourite sport and connect your body with your mind.
Don’t hesitate and put our advice into practice. Enjoy the moment and accompany it with a delicious baked snack to recharge your body and mind.
