Not every moment of every day is perfect, peaceful or extraordinary. But we can carve out tiny boxes of time that are quiet, and only ours. Thirty minutes spent mindfully on something simple that we enjoy, be it a book, some music, gentle deep breathing, meditation, the perfect cuppa, or just staring into space is enough to create a positive change in our mental and emotional wellbeing, and the sheer quality of our lives. Try it for just 10 days and see the difference it make
It's the nature of the mind to think. Thoughts arise like waves in the ocean, you can't stop them, but you can accept them as the inherent nature of the mind. But if you drop down, still the mind, go further down, it's like going many feet under the waves, where it is all gentle, quiet, present and awake. So, you don't have to shout anything down or out, you have to dive deeper into yourself, to just notice...observe, without judgement. That is mindfulness, the awareness that
Home -- where love, hope and dreams reside. A sanctuary where beautiful memories are created, close people always feel rested, and the heart-to-hearts and laughter never ends. Where it's not the bricks and beams, or the furniture and comforts one loves the most, but who we share it with, be it a person, an animal or just our very own higher self. Wish you all that special feeling called "home". #gratitide #mindfulness #nilgiris #india #Mindfulnessretreats #mindfulnesstrainer
In the hectic rush of daily life, how do you integrate the gift of spirituality into the lives of your children? As you juggle between school, tuitions, birthday parties, sports practice and guitar lessons, how do you find the time to teach and encourage your children to develop a spiritually strong core? How do you instill faith in that can help them navigate through the toughest storms of life? You can start by simply being mindful of the opportunities that your daily life
The most soothing sight in the summer is the lilac tide of Jacarandas, bursting through the sharp heat of the mountain sun. The most romantic, is to walk on a path lined by Jacarandas, softly showered by their pristine petals...fully aware of how that moment was created just for you. #mindfulnessexercise #mindfulnesstrainer #benefitsofmindfulness #mindfulnessspeaker #Mindfulness #mindfulnessworkshops #mindfulnesstraining #nilgiris #HealingHideaway #Retreats #top10spiritualret
The truth is, you and I are in control of only two things : how we prepare for what might happen, and how we respond to what just happened. The moment when things actually do happen belongs to God.

In moments like this one wonders if God has showed up, or we've showed up for God. #mindfulnesstrainer #Mindfulness #mindfulnesstraining #mindfulnessspeaker #mindfulnessworkshops #7PointMeditation #guidedmeditation #ecotherapy #consciousness #God #FindingGod #spiritualpractice #Nilgiris #Indianbuddhists #meditationretreats #top10spiritualretreats
Trees offer the most amazing lesson in individuality, each one fully comfortable in it's unique being and appearance, yet so harmonious in the collective. Unlike humans, trees have the amazing ability to be hyper individualistic, and yet harmonious with others of all shapes, shades and stature. Look at the trees around you, it could be in the neighbourhood park, on the road, or a forest. Each and every tree is different from the other, even if they are the same species, much
The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things, the more they become invisible to us. That's why we often take for granted the beauty of this world : the flowers, the birds, the clouds, even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. #mindfulness #digitaldetox #digitalwellness #digitaldetoxretreats #mindfulnesstraining #healinghideaway #bindiyamurgai #digitalwellness #speaker #mentalhealth #mentalfitness #gr
Green is the color of nature and health. It represents growth, nature, money, fertility and safety. It's a relaxing color that is pleasing to the eye, and is said to have healing powers. It is often used to represent anything that has to do with health, and is also the color of the heart chakra. #healinghideaway #nilgiris #thambatti #bluemountains #healing #chakrameditation #chakrabalancing #meditation #mindfulness #happiness #arttherapy #counselling #therapist #bindiyamurgai
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Eastern countries devised some beautiful rituals around tea. These were about more than just drinking tea. They were about bonding, mental health and emotional well-being. The Japanese made it an art form…a carefully crafted practice of mindfulness, best summed up in the Zen phrase "ichi-go ichi-e", which means "one time, one meeting". The phrase encapsulates the beauty, uniqueness and impermanence of the present moment. According to researchers at Yale, holding a warm cup of
Life is a journey, and we don't always chose the people with whom we travel that journey. But the path always begins beneath our feet, with every step we take...Where we stand right now is where our journey begins. #healinghideaway #nilgiris #mindfulness #meditation #mountainretreats #bindiyamurgai #counselling #lifecoaching #mentalhealth #mentalfitness #digitaldetox #wellnessretreats #retreatsinindia #workshops #personaldevelopment #india #spirituality #Mindfulness #happines
Glowing full moon on Guru Purnima!
This is a tradition dedicated to spiritual and academic teachers, or evolved, beings who have shared their wisdom with you in a manner that has enriched or deepened your knowledge, or life experience. Though it's traditionally celebrated by Buddhists, Hindus and Jains, anyone can partake in this wonderful tradition. If you have ever had a guru, which simply means someone who has "taken you from darkness to light" (could even be a parent/ b
This is a way of measuring anxiety and depression which gets away from the use of language. This might actually be a better way of capturing a patient's mood than questions, especially when gauging the moods of children, and other patients who have trouble communicating verbally. Colors are often used as metaphors for moods, but no one had systematically researched color associations. This study found that people with depression or anxiety were more likely to associate their
