For our #BookstravaganzaHomecoming series, we asked our authors about a few of their favorite things. Here are Lisa Unger’s favorite home rituals.
I find that when the chatter in my head is too loud, when the world is too chaotic, when there’s just been too much input, it’s time to close things down. I live on the beach, so a mindful walk with my toes in the sand is always centering. A yin yoga practice can be a kind of moving meditation. I don’t have a ton of rituals per se, but I do have a mindfulness and meditation practice. So just sitting and mediating, being with my breath and stilling my mind can act as a reboot. I also enjoy a good cup of peppermint tea with honey — that’s kind of the magic elixir for extreme stress. Just sit and drink a cup of peppermint tea —most things make more sense after that.
