When we think of retreats, an image of a tranquil scenery pops up in our minds. Yet, we do not need to go anywhere if we let our minds rest and pay attention to our breath. Returning to our breath is a retreat in itself.
My transition to vegetarian/vegan wasn’t overnight. It took about 3 months for me to make the decision to finally switch. And I find it extremely fun because I can experiment with foods I have never tried before, what with all these constraints.
Life can be broken down into days, and days into moments and moments into micro moments. I’ve decided to use this concept in goal setting. Instead of being fixated on a particular goal, I want to chase the feel-good effect after pursuing a particular micro moment.
Looking at how women are portrayed these days on magazines, movies and media, it is almost impossible to be unaffected by it. We all forget one thing as we go on a quest to look our ‘best’, or when we try to fit the mold of societal beauty standards. Who is this exactly for? Yourself, or the world?
Whether you're a full-fledged vegan, flexitarian, or a meat eater, incorporating more vegetarian meals into your diet can be incredibly beneficial. So, why not select one of these vegetarian cafes for your next dinner date?
