Hi!

I feel that everyone needs some sort of creative outlet, or passion project. This is mine. I share original and curated content of everything from photographs of my home, to my love for plants, to my carefully curated playlists. My hope is that this blog will serve as a source of inspiration for you as well. 

The Rituals App: Quieting The Mind

The Rituals App: Quieting The Mind

If you're anything like me, then there will be times when you'll just want to shut completely off from the rest of the world, if only for a few hours, to enjoy a bit of "me" time. This means enabling the Do Not Disturb feature on your iPhone (which I do quite often), or even shutting your ringer completely off. Lately, I have been focused on learning how to quiet my mind, and although it's been challenging, it's a practice that's definitely beneficial to gain that inner peace.

If you have trouble meditating like I do, the Rituals app is a great start. Meditating is not easy, and I'm still figuring it out, but I have noticed that when I take those few minutes to mentally shut down and tune in to the meditation sessions on the app right before bed, I feel a lot more relaxed, and I find that it actually allows me to have a better night's sleep. For someone who's easily distracted, and struggles with being present at times, this app has become by best bud. Rituals also has a line of home and body products that I would love to try, especially their candles and fragrance sticks!

The Rituals app is available for both the iPhone and Android.
