Mindful Skincare Routine – Monat

I recently realised that skincare routines could also be another opportunity for me and anyone who is "too busy" to meditate or relax, to actually pause, slow down and connect with your presence in front of the mirror. A time to practice positive affirmations and to boost your self-esteem. It was the beginning of the year when I decided to...

Your body is your temple

We all know our body is what allows us to experience this physical experience in this particular planet. Doesn't make sense then to take care of it and nourish it in the best possible way? That is why I want to share a little bit of what I've been learning in regards to skin and hair care. I didn't have a...

The rules of the heart

I have never been a fan of rules. I understand that society needs them to agree on certain things for sure. However, sometimes I find myself doubting the decisions made by our leaders (especially during these Covid-19 months). Am I the only one? I don't think so but I do know some people take these rules more seriously than others....

There were many instances during my childhood in which I would feel deeply sad, not knowing what else to do but cry...

Listening to the whispers of the soul

Sometimes I need silence, just to be present, feeling my body and emotions while I breathe and stay still on my yoga mat. Sometimes the thoughts are just noise from my ego trying to explain how I feel and creating new problems to solve. I also ask big questions: What is my purpose? Is there any profound meaning in all this? How...

We’re all a bit sad (and that’s ok)

“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.” Thich Nhat Hanh About 3 years ago my life changed completely. From the moment I gave birth up until now, I've been becoming a different person. As a first-time mom, I constantly try to make my daughter feel happy every day. I also wonder a lot about the true meaning of...
