I really like the new Live Happy app for the iPhone. Read about it here: http://www.signalpatterns.com/iphone/livehappy_std.html. I am already working on my savouring album.What a great and easy way to use those special photos that I already have on my iPhone!
We do a real world version of the savouring album in one of our Purple Mangoes workshops; people created the most lovely things!
My business partner Liz and I did a Purple Mangoes workshop this week. We called it “Comfort and Joy” and made beautiful small glass vessels and toppers, which we showed our participants how to wire-wrap into a pendant. We had 5 different essential oils – lavender, bergamot, orange, pink grapefruit and tangerine – for people to fill their vessels with. When people wear these little creations, they’ll be able to enjoy just the slight scent of something that brings some comfort and joy in the midst of their day. In this hectic season, and in these challenging economic and political times, it seems more important than ever for maintaining health to remember to take time to savour what is good. Here are some other ideas about ways to savour – to enjoy the moment. Enjoy!
