As the days get shorter and darker we find ourselves cosying up on the sofa with a warm drink in hand, going for brisk walks on frosty mornings and enjoy observing the seasons change from the comfort of inside our homes. This year has been a challenging one and as the seasons change, it reassures us that we can rely on natures effortless seasonal transitions.
There's nothing in nature that blooms all year long, don't expect yourself to do so.
With each season brings new lesson’s for growth and new opportunities. Winter inspires us to reflect, relax and show gratitude for the previous month’s that have passed. Now is the perfect time to retract and focus on growing your self care, before the manic time of Christmas and sometimes stressful family gatherings. To help prepare you why not create a sacred space where you can relax, turn off and focus inwards. We like to call this our ZenDen, need some visual inspiration on how to create your perfect space?

Suggestions on creating your zenden:
Choose an area of your house which is undisturbed from the rest of the household and warm.
For a balancing space Include each of the elements:
Try to include all the senses; Taste, Touch, Smell, Sight, Hearing
Soft cushions, yoga mat, blankets, Rug, pillows-any fabric which you like the texture/touch/sensation it creates
Journal, pen, books
For taste, smell and hearing you can use the ideas of the element suggestions
Sight: Images, photos, art, any item you find inspiring, beautiful, relaxing and encourage positive feelings
Create a space unique to you
How time has flown by, a year in the planning and six months down the line since ZenTribe launched. The road has been far from smooth but we are so grateful for all the bumps in our path as this has seen ZenTribe grow and made us more determined to share our vision and spread our mission globally. So many lessons and opportunities have arose for us, meeting great like minded businesses, creating an amazing community and the nitty gritty bits of running a business day to day. Who knew that running your own business was so tricky and add a sprinkling of a global pandemic on top of this, is a challenge but all worth it.
This month we are reflecting on how far our journey has taken us and wanted to share the people, events and love that has been shared with us. It is so important for us at ZenTribe to show gratitude to all the support we have received from fellow businesses and individuals, it inspires and motivates us on our down and happy days.
