This is a mantra that I’ve been using lately.
I can be calm
I will be calm
I am calm
Have a stress-free week,

I tried out a new recipe last night for healthy samosas. Cleverly, the pastry was replaced with rice paper roll wrappers, and rather than deep fried, they were oven baked. I adapted this recipe slightly to suit what I had in the fridge (added in roast pumpkin and a red capsicum). Such a delicious meal, and I even have a few left over for lunch today.
You can find the recipe over here at: My New Roots.
And if you have your own healthy recipe you’re keen to share, feel free to add a comment below!

You can use positive affirmations as a pick-me-up during the day, or during meditation.
Repeat any of these affirmations. Try to believe them; if you hear things often enough, you do start to believe them.

Apologies for the lengthy delay between blog posts! My daughter who helps me manage the blog just started her master’s degree in primary teaching this year and there has been little spare time for… anything! But you can definitely look forward to more regular blog updates from now on.
Stress in daily life can be the big things or the little things. Stress can keep life interesting, and can provide us with motivation, but too much stress can have a negative impact on your body and soul. Meditation can remedy stress and allow us to stay centred and grounded. There are many ways to meditate and trying a variety will allow you to find the style that works best for you. Here is one that you can try:
1. Choose a simple word or phrase, like love, calm, peace…
2. Repeat that word to yourself, either out loud or in your head, every second or so.
3. Continue for 10 to 20 minutes.
4. Block out everyday thoughts when they pop into your mind.
It is important to treat our minds with a little time off, and meditation is the perfect way to do it.
Other techniques to try while meditating:
I will post some more positive affirmations next time.
Yours in yoga,
