There is a little Zen proverb that goes like this:
“You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day — unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.”
Today when I was opening up my February Yogi Surprise box, I thought of that quote.
Slowing down and being present does wonders for my soul. I love Yogi Surprise because when I see that lovely lavender box on my doorstep, that’s what I do. I stop for a moment, I take a deep breath, and I smile.
Usually I even eat one of the snacks just after I open the box (because they are always so yummy!), so that puts me in a good mood, too ;)
This month, the box was filled with all sorts of goodies that couldn’t have come at a better time…
Sprouted granola, for a healthy sweet treat instead of leftover Valentine’s Day candy…
Lovely all-natural facial cleansing cloths – perfect for after a sweaty yoga class!
Keen-Wah energy bars which are now in my desk drawer at work, ready to fend off any ‘hangry’ afternoons.
The box included a few more goodies, including a hot yoga headband that I shared with one of my sponsored yogis and a charcoal water filter that I have yet to try.
If you’re in need of a little mini-retreat and the chance to become blissfully present, I recommend checking out Yogi Surprise. So much goodness in one little box! xo
