Over 50s Lifestyle Zen Tip Tuesday

Creating your own Zen space at home to reduce stress

Creating your own Zen space

Today I’m at Write of the Middle with my thoughts on creating Zen

I’m a guest this week for the lovely Min Gillespie for her Zen Tip Tuesday series. When Min asked me to write what Zen means to me, I had just finished listening to a podcast. I’ve just discovered podcasts (late to the party, I know!) and love that I can be doing some mundane task whilst listening and learning.

I was recently listening to ‘Your Dream Life Podcast’ presented by Kikki K., the founder of the Kikki K Inspirational Stationery, Journals, Books and Gifts.  Her Guest, Dr Hazel Wallace, The Food Medic, discussed ‘Habits, Positive Rituals & Believing Anything is Possible’.  During the interview Dr Wallace explained the importance of relaxation and including a Zen corner or space in your home. 

Zen is a word that many of us think we know the meaning of, but as I’ve been reading Min’s Zen Tip Tuesday posts, I realise that there is more to this three-letter word. I have learned from previous guests, that Zen can mean different things to each of us. There are so many ways we can bring Zen into our lives and I’m delighted to be part of Min’s #ZTT series and contribute my thoughts.

If you would like to read how to create your own Zen space at Home pop over and read the rest of my post at Min’s Gems of Zen . While you are there say hi to Min and discover other ways to bring Zen into your life.

    I love podcasts Sue. I have a 50 drive to work so listen in the car. I hadn’t come across Your Dream Life but have now subscribed. I have the Your Dream Life Book. I’ve read it quickly but haven’t yet done the exercises. Thanks for reminding me.

      Podcasts are great aren’t they Jen? I’m so pleased Rachel introduced me to them. I have another that I like ‘Fit Strong Women Over 50’ that I listen to regularly. x

    Hi, Sue – I’m on my way over to Min’s now. See you both there!

    I love podcasts too! Always good to know another one to add to the list, thanks Sue. On my way to read your post on Min’s blog.

      Thanks Deb, I think podcasts are great because you can be doing something whilst listening to them. x

    Thanks so much for not only your wonderful support of my Zen Tip Tuesday series but also now participating with such a great post Sue! As for podcasts – I’ve recently discovered some that I really enjoy listening to! Love to listen as I do jobs around the house and even when I crochet! I’ll have to check out this one by the founder of Kiki K! Have a wonderful week! 🙂 xo

      My pleasure Min and thank you for the opportunity to contribute. Podcasts are great because you can be doing something else while you are listening to them. I’ve found some really good ones but the Kikki K ones are always interesting. x

    I absolutely loved your post, Sue. Finding our Zen no matter where we are is essential. My entire home is now my Zen. 😉 Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Bren! We have just moved to a new home near the ocean so I can walk across the road to the beach and that could be my Zen place 🙂

    I really enjoyed your post Sue. Thanks for sharing some wonderful tips. xx

      thanks Miriam. We have just moved so I need to work out where I am going to have my Zen space. Living across from the beach means I have a huge Zen space just outside my door! Have a lovely week. x
