Beach Fire Treat
Treating yourself to an occasional and safe fire on the beach can be very calming for the soul. Focusing on gathering dry drift wood and finding a suitable location to enjoy your fire. Putting all your attention to building a safe, small pit away from any flammable areas. Getting it started and keeping going ~ Naturally mindful contentment follows. Appreciating the changing day or evening around you. And finally, ensuring that the fire is put out completely taking care not to leave any hot coals

Savouring the Beauty on Daily Short Walks
‘We can maximize the benefits of the good things around us by consciously savouring them rather than taking them for granted. As you walk, try to notice as many positive things around you as you can. These can be sights, sounds, smells, or other sensations. Pause for a moment as you hear or see each thing and make sure it registers with your conscious awareness, really take it in.’
