How do you Mind Your Melon?

I love swimming – specifically sea swimming.

I also love going for walks & hikes and getting fresh air – it helps clear my head and helps me ground myself.

How do you Mind Your Melon?

Giving myself a break and allowing myself to ignore my responsibilities for the evening so I can fully relax with a fluffy blanket, all of the pillows in the house, fairy lights and a lit candle.

I go for a walk in my local park and the beach and focus on my breath and be very present in the moment and try not let my mind drift

I like to go for a long walk to unwind or sometimes sit down with a cup of tea and have a chat (:

Deborah

How do you Mind Your Melon?

Going for regular walks is a great way to clear your head. I usually go first thing in the morning, it wakes me up and sets me up right for the day ahead.

How do you Mind Your Melon?

I find it’s really important to get out of the house, especially on days when you don’t really feel like it. Even if it’s just a short walk, being somewhere new can be really refreshing.

Liam

How do you Mind Your Melon?

Sit and listen to your mind and your body. Take even just 5 minutes in your day to just sit with yourself and see if you need anything, even as simple as a cup of tea or a good chat!
