#3 Slow cooking a meal
Instead of our slow cooker, microwave or instapot let's cook a meal from stratch. Find your favorite recipe or cook show. and buy the ingredients to cook alongside of the cook. Take the time to chop, dice, and marinade and see what delectable food you can create. A simple chopped salad layered with fresh veges and a simple balsamic dressing. What will you create? Take a picture of your ingredients and then plate your food and take another picture. Be sure to tag #dpiselfcareslowdown
#4 An homage to the meal
Have you every slowed down your process of eating to think about the hands that gathered the wheat or churned the butter from your favorite place. i love the smell of fresh bread baking and spreading soften butter on the warm sourdough bread. Take a moment to plate a meal or snack and then eat it slowly remembering how it came to be. Wild Rice and chicken soup bringing memories of the rice fields where workers gather, knelt down picking the rice as tigers lay in the distance. This brings a new level of gratitude to the food we eat.
#5 Walking in nature
The act of walking in silence and taking in all our senses can experience brings rest to our minds and vitality to our soul. I recently joined Theresa Horne's 30 day challenge to walk in nature. Purchase her book and take a journey that will change your life. Aware of our surroundings and our breath takes on the very meaning of self care
