Hello,
How are you today? Are you feeling relaxed and peaceful within you? Or maybe you feel overwhelmed and a bit stressed? Either way, it is so important to take your time and relax. Make space to listen to the inner voice that constantly is trying to guide you. Don´t ignore it.

We have both been on a conscious spiritual journey for a good while but it´s in fact only recently we have taken it one step further and started to meditate. Honestly, we can´t even describe what a shift it has done in our lives. We highly encourage you to take the step.. if you haven´t already. There are plenty of guided meditation sessions you can find online for free. That is specially a good idea if you are new to it and mostly feel like the man on the pic above 😉 YES – we all know that feeling!

We also wanted to share a little story we found online with you.

“A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses. As early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the evening and into the night. Remember to put the glass down!”

Indeed, let´s put the glass down and enjoy the evening!

With love,
Julie & Katrin
