It has been on my mind for a while. That a lot of things seemed so much simpler, when I was younger. It probably wasn't, but that's how it feels now that most of my days are full of work, kids and no time to rest properly most of the time.
As I went for a walk with our youngest one, it suddenly crossed my mind that he is such an amazing source of inspiration to me. I study him and the rest of my kids with astonishment every day and have honestly learned som much from them.
The kids often know exactly what they want and need - and they express it, if we just let them. They ask for what they want, when they need something. No filters.
Not so long ago, I attended a local yoga teacher Magdalena Mecweld's workshop about restorative yoga. A great and much needed experience on a Sunday that I would normally spend with the family, but I took a whole day on my own to explore new ways to rest and recover. The best idea I have had for a long time.
My biggest learning from Magdalena's workshop was that you can meditate anywhere anytime, you don't necessarily have to pose or sit in a specific way to benefit from a moment of rest and focus - and I absolutely love that!
The learning actually goes hand in hand with my youngest son's directness and immediate action that I watched the last time we went to the sea. He got tired and decided to take a nap on top of a garden table, where we had put our towels to dry in the sun. Just like that because it felt right to him.
