    • Brisk walking & light running
    • Strenght (some although minimal)
    • Biking (although less now in the winter)
    • Eat simple, hearty peasant food (just got a crockpot!)

  • In wider context

    • Give Breema and Big Mind session to folks
    • Organize simple living & sustainability related workshops etc.
The last few weeks have been a period of resting from much of this, which seems to be just a part of natural cycles - both individual and seasonal. Resting and integration phases are as important as the more active ones.
