Why we all love Autumn so much | Egret Jewellery

  So, Autumn is here again, the summer with its endless nights and days at the beach has been and gone and the crisp air of change returns to us once again. It’s long been pondered upon by greater minds than mine why we love this season so much. Many a great poet has written musing of its beauty. It seems to be a great source of inspiration to us and it’s hard not to see why.   Autumn is a wonderful time to inspire creativity, it has a romantic air about it. Bringing you back to memories of your childhood helps to inspire creativity. When you are child you are not bound by the same rules that apply in...

The Physical, Mental & Spiritual Benefits of Yoga | Egret Jewellery

  Yoga is absolutely wonderful. It is not only an amazing way to keep your body healthy and feeling great but if you connect to it a little deeper it can become a whole lot more. Yogis seek to experience the spirit or the energy all around us, when we are connecting to this energy we are helping to balance out our inner emotions and learning how to harness them. Yoga in its truest form gives us time to quiet the mind and truly listen to our inner selves, really feeling the flow of energy all around us. Yoga encourages the synchronisation between body, mind and the spirit, through meditation, breathing and physical postures, allowing us to form a deeper...

Comparison is the thief of joy | Why do we compare ourselves to others

Comparing ourselves to others is one of the fundamental flaws of the human psyche. Why is it we constantly paw through social media judging our lives by another-persons standards? Or lay in bed at night going over and over how much better someone else’s life is than our own? It is a flaw hidden deep inside all of us, the instinctual human nature of fight or flight negatively gnawing away at our brains. If we don’t monitor and control our thoughts they tend to move towards the pessimistic. Instead of wishing our lives were like someone else we should be finding inspiration in them and letting their achievements spur us forward, not wallowing in self-pity. We need to strive to...

Why we should give love on Valentine's Day | Egret Jewellery

Love is a universal language. It is a language we all understand at an instinctual level – it speaks to us in a way that can navigate great distances through time and space. It is the life force of our beautiful planet and without it we would cease to exist. Maybe we don’t understand it fully but we can all recognise it, it is the feeling we get when we stare up into those big brown eyes of the person we love, that feeling of deep connection when we hold our child for the first time. Or the boiling over of giddiness when you catch someone’s eye and hold onto their gaze, realising that some-how we are one consciousness.   Valentine's...
