‘Peace of mind is not a goal I need to achieve. It is a place inside I never want to leave’ Robert Alan.
No matter what our personal situations may be, let us be reminded this Christmas of the importance of peace and gratitude. Peace to give us a rested body and soul, and gratitude to help shift our focus from what life lacks to the abundance that is already present. There is a growing amount of research that suggests cultivating an attitude of gratitude has been linked to many things including better health, higher long-term satisfaction with life and kinder behaviour toward others.
For some practical tips on gratitude don’t miss Charlotte Thaarup-Owen’s article on Practicing Gratitude and her recommended Meditation on Gratitude; a powerful way to enhance all that is good over the festive season. And speaking of ‘festive’, one of the hardest things to manage at Christmas can be sensible feasting so don’t miss Mel Overall’s fabulous tips to help keep you on track. This final edition of PATH for the year is jammed packed with great ideas, health tips and scrumptious healthy recipes including one of my favourites, BBQ Whole Fish with Coriander, Lime and Mango from Executive Chef David Hunter. Enjoy!
