Slow Life

Macramé workshop with Atelier by Vintidui (you should try it too!)

Lately, in my nomadic journey, I have included more regular visits to my birth country, Mauritius island. The primary reason stems from my desire to witness the continuous growth unfolding on the island. You have to be blind not to see the positive changes taking effect. For instance, you might have been entertained by my stories of how I visited the island in a conscious way, or how I got

Brushes and Botanicals Watercolour Workshop – a treasured morning

Each year, I receive one word that sets the theme for the next 12 months. This year’s theme is Treasure , and so far it’s been fun looking out for treasures. Today, I will share the story of another treasure that I uncovered. If you’re a creative, I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy this post. It is a long read so grab a cup of your favourite tea and join me as we

My digital detox and what I’ve been up to

If you follow me on social media, you might have seen that I shared about my intention of a digital detox for the month. This came about because when I was in Mauritius (May- July 2017), I realized I spent too much time on my computer or social media working. I had a good flow going in terms of content writing for this blog, as well as taking care of

Crafting morning rituals for everyday living (even abroad!)

Each day that we open our eyes truly is a miracle. For those who recognize this as a blessing, it would be wonderful to live the day well. This could mean making the most of the day. While trying something new and exciting would be amazing, we know that it’s not possible for us all to live like this every single day. Life happens. We have responsibilities. Kids. Pets. Spouses.

The number one advice I follow against anxiety (on days where I’m fine)

I like to believe that I’m a perfectly healthy and balanced individual. Of course, we will never know. I mean, what is ‘normal’? What is ‘balanced’? In a world with people having different personalities, quirks and character traits, how are we to measure that? Anyway, I have a confession. For those of you who met me and know me personally, you would know that I have a history of anxiety

Purpose and meaning in life and the work we do

You know that question we all seem to get asked when we are little. “So, what would you like to be when you grow up?” I wanted to be three things when I grow up. (As one does). I wanted to be a Princess. Because they seemed to have a lifestyle that I would love. Having tea in the palace gardens, with a lady-in-waiting, wearing a beautiful gown and glass

Are we women harnessing the full power of who we are? (this relates to our cycle)

(My dear women readers, this one is for you. Men, perhaps a post you could recommend to the women in your life?) Have you ever had something amazing happen to you and you couldn’t wait to tell this to your best friend? I feel like this today – I’ve been longing to share this with you. Harnessing our full power as women We as women are complex creatures. We have

Slow-travel: paving the way to mindfulness

The first time I heard the word “mindful”, it didn’t go down well with me. It actually irked me because here I was, being told off for being inconsiderate because I was 20 seconds late to my desk after my tea break. Granted, I should not have been late. In my defense, it was a lovely cup of Rooibos. “Please be mindful next time”. I loathed that word for a long time

Time to unplug (even if the nature of your work is online)

As I sat in my bed, about to go to sleep, I felt my breathing becoming heavier and heavier. What was going on? Did I not have enough time to digest my food? No, it’s been a couple of hours since dinner. What was it then? And then it hit me. The dreaded panic has set in. I was in a frantic state – my heart was imploding under my

7 Ways to connect with people

As an introvert, there’s nothing more I enjoy than spending time on my own. To reflect, recharge, and have time to myself to ponder and analyze stuff. Connecting with people As a slow-traveller and nomad though, nothing brings me more joy than to connect with people along my journey. It’s often said that we tend to gravitate towards people like us. The gist of that is we are more likely
