Amy Rootvik (thanks Amy!) linked to this video on Facebook, and at first I thought – huh? But as it played, I realised the simplicity with which it delivers a message of calm and peace. The music, the rhythm, the design, lower your heart rate and make you breathe deeply. What a better way to […]

Change yourself and your life by committing to one small ritual each month It seems too simple to actually work. Change means hard work, struggle, stress, doesn’t it?
