When it is time to dive into your craft, mark the occasion by burning a candle with a scent that lifts your mind and transforms your workspace into something sacred.
Doing this repeatedly can also form a new habit that can train your body to enter work mode more quickly while also giving you the mental space to slow down, focus and produce quality work.
A scent can transform a space instantly and powerfully.
Sometimes it can bring you back to a pure moment of your childhood where you remember precise details. Other times it can bring back a fuzzy memory of a person or place you miss or have long forgotten.
Give these memories great care and space by feeling whatever you may need to feel in the moment.
“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
TAKE IT TO HEART
As the days shorten try lighting some candles in the evening to keep the atmosphere low and warm while easing your mind’s transition towards rest. When you take care of yourself, you are taking care of your livelihood as well.
