You have got ten minutes. You have always got 10 minutes. How often do you take time for yourself? Do it now, in my garden in Myddfai. You can close your eyes and listen. Welcome to Myddfai.

Ten minutes in a Myddfai Garden

Time away from your screen allows you to stretch, to look at nature or people instead of bright light and text. Ten minutes is a very short amount of time for yourself, so there is no reason not to take it. If you are still coming up with reasons, then you are simply feeding your own drama. You are NOT that busy, you are NOT that important. Take the break, accept that you deserve it. It can be our secret.

Taking a time-out can make a huge difference to your mindset

Ten minutes can make a difference in so many situations When did you last walk away and give yourself a few minutes to calm down before writing an angry response to an email? What outcomes might be different for your today if you allowed for a moment of peace for yourself? Ten minutes spent with the one you love, really listening to them, can transform how your partner is feeling.

Time spent on learning something new each day can be transformative. Starting with allowing yourself to have 10 minutes and not following up with ‘I shouldn’t have taken that ten minutes’ might be a good place to start. These are challenging times. Think small changes if you want to keep them up.

If you enjoyed the sounds of the woodland, then pop back when you want some more of nature’s wonderful top-up. The link below takes you to my ‘Myddfai Minute’ playlist. Each is a minute long and is recorded in our woodland. Enjoy

Take time for yourself and accept it as a gift. Pay it forward too, by sharing it with people who deserve to give themselves a break. Let’s start a little change together. Ten minutes. Every day. You deserve it and you’ll feel a positive change.

From my heart to yours
