Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. #eckharttolle 🌿
We’re on AEST finally after what felt like neverending jetlag. I find traveling with children very challenging- my children are used to such a strong and simple rhythm in the home and what we’re experiencing now is anything but. I’m doing my best to carve out as many little boundaries and breathing spaces as I can throughout the day in between visiting relatives and friends and tourist spots. Focusing on the three foundations of rhythm (as discussed in the Return to Rhythm eGuide): mealtimes, playtimes and sleeptimes. What does your holiday rhythm look like? What do you let go of and what do you hold on to? And for those of you who are brave enough to travel the globe with your little ones how do you maintain a sense of flow and rhythm in your days?
We’ve arrived in Australia. A bit weary and jetlagged but once we sunk our toes into that sand this morning we knew we were home. #homeawayfromhome #mtmartha
Sharing some of my favourite travel essentials for the 30+ hour journey we’re about to embark on. Lipbalm, facial wipes and hand lotion- always! I use Rescue Remedy and passionflower herbal tablets for stress during the flight. The kids have new novel toys and art supplies packed in their bags as well as healthy snacks and leak-proof stainless steel water bottles. And finally some audiobooks and podcasts I have downloaded onto my phone to listen to with my @sudio headphones. I have partnered with @sudio to offer all of you 15% off of their entire collection with the coupon code WFRSUDIO. They’re beautifully designed and the carrypouch is perfect for tossing in my bag on the go. #partnership #sudio #travelingfamily
Every other corner of our home is turned upside down as we prematurely put away our Christmas tree, decorations and gifts and pack & prepare for our journey to Australia tomorrow. It will be our first time “home” since we moved to Canada 2 years ago. We are so excited to reunite with friends and family but not quite looking forward to the very, very long flights to get there. Hoping you and yours have had a magical past few days together. 💙❄️
We baked crinkles today for the children’s final advent celebration tomorrow at school. (Thank you to @veronikagphotography for making me aware that these delicious cookies existed!) To see some very funny and candid outtakes click on my stories from today. #wholefamilychristmas
