Mind Full
of Senses

Take A Moment to Be Mindful 
 Engage your senses fully
 Notice each sight, 
touch,
and sound
 so that you savor every sensation.

 Yeah! Mindful Vacation

Alessandra Ambrosio, Just discovered she fell  in love ...   with this island (mykonos),



Senses are essentially the doorways to your happiness.


You can walk through these doors by choosing to attend to the pleasure they bring you and to hold that attention. 


This process of opening up to your senses is fundamentally about opening up the connection between yourself and the world. If you allow yourself to be mindful of one of your senses when it makes you happy, you might notice that you begin to be more aware of your other senses as well. 


The more you pay attention to the joy of your senses, the more the happiest moments

Lesvos was to Aristotle what the Galápagos were to Darwin. Aristotle  and his new wife had to flee in 345 BC from  Assos, Asia Minor, when it  was conquered by the Persians. They made landfall in nearby Lesvos, which is where Aristotle gathered the m...Read Full Post »

Mindful the Journey, That' s Life 

  • How do you feel waking up on a Greek Island every day?
