and bright eyed children go a'scrambling in search of hidden Easter eggs.
Easter Weekend can be jam packed with activities and social commitments.
As I am still blogging in bed I thought a post on how Flopsy might put HOP back in her life might be timely!
This little bunny is going to take it easy this weekend.
I'm on top of most things but admit that I now I need to let some things go....
give in and put them out of my mind.
Look Chester got into the act!
You can see him in the right of the image taking a nip out of bunny's ear.
OUCH Chester that hurts!
Hang in there Flopsy.
Some days you are on top of the world and other days you just have to go with the flow...
On these rather difficult days one needs to be kind and be gentle.
Taking special care to tend to focus on a restorative practice.
savour the beautiful
eat healthy food from a pretty plate
anoint the body with rich lotion or oil
put on some comfy cozy clothes
light a scented candle
brew a pot of tea or coffee
enjoy a small square of chocolate let it slowly melt in your mouth
lie down in a comfortable position and rest
have a nap or doze
look at beautiful images from a book that speaks to you
soak your feet in scented salts
massage them with cream and then put on some socks
read inspirational quotes or poetry
listen to your favourite music
look at your photo albums
write in a journal
let your creativity flow without judgement
arrange or rearrange a vignette of things you love
clear out clutter ~ if that junk drawer is driving you crazy be ruthless
iron some linen, stand back and admire the pile after you finish
fold the laundry and put it away
watch a classic film
paint your nails
Listen closely to what it is that you need.
What is it that works for you personally?
Give yourself permission to indulge in a day completely devoted to calming and soothing.
Tomorrow you will be better prepared to rise up and greet life with a smile and accept the challenges.
I hope that you have a joyful weekend.
