Our fabulous carer support worker Emma Stewart shares her musings on mindful moments and creating a sense of Christmas calm.
We don’t have to climb mountains to feel a positive change, sometimes it only takes a small step to make a big difference. The pandemic has created a sense of uncertainty for all of us. Finding something which makes us feel grounded and good about ourselves every day can make it easier to cope.
Saying hello to a neighbour, getting cozy with a cuppa and a book, writing down your worries, sharing stories, singing Christmas carols, going for a walk in the woods – all these little things can help us to feel connected with ourselves and others and bring some Christmas Calm.
I’ve loved taking photos this year and connecting a bit more with nature so thought I would share a few images with a quiet reflective poem.
The mountains are my bones
The rivers my veins
The forests are my thoughts
And the stars are my dreams
The ocean is my heart
Its pounding is my pulse
The songs of the earth write
The music of my soul
I’ve also enjoyed these lovely mindful moments from BBC Springwatch. Perhaps watching one will offer you a space to breathe and some Christmas calm today?
Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
