Life tip #22: Be nice

I hope you’re all having a very nice Monday so far! I’ve got to say I was so pleasantly surprised by all of the comments on my eat mindfully life tip last week. It’s great to see that others care so much about food/eating and that many of you already know what mindful eating is. […]






Life tip #21: Eat mindfully

Happy Monday and week to all of you! Lately I’ve been thinking about eating mindfully on a daily basis, about midway through each meal. I first heard about mindful eating in an article on Care2 (I’m betting it was one of these great articles: How to Become an Intuitive Eater, Mindful Eating and Tuning Into […]






Life tip #20: Drink plenty of tea

Good Monday to all of you! A little while back I asked for you to share your life tips with me and the lovely Brandi of Not Your Average Ordinary shared quite a few! One she suggested was “take time for tea” and, if you know me or have been around here on Four Leaf […]






What’s your life tip?: anger

I’m going to start off by saying sorry, this isn’t my usual life tip. I have many life tips lined up to share with all of you, but the past few days I may have had a couple of real rainbows, but am far from rainbow or even sunny moments. This morning I woke up […]






Life tip #19: Think positively

Happy Monday, I hope your weekend was a happy one! I was (and still am) so pleased that I finally shared photographs of the village I live in with all of you and that you’ve all left such lovely comments – thank you!

Life tip #18: Trust yourself

I enjoyed that as well, I just wish I’d been able to spend more time out in it. Unfortunately, laptops don’t do […]






Life tip #17: Make time

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! I was busy the whole time, but it was a very good busy and I imagine this week will be just as busy, if not more. This image is of a flower, in case you were wondering. I love how some of the petals look […]






Life tip #16: Do less/more

First, I have to say thank you so much to those who commented on my last two posts, especially on my vineyard walk travel post. You’re much too kind to me! That’s another do less/more I could have written: criticize less/thank more. Which made me think of take less/give more. There are so many things […]






Life tip #15: Respect

Every time I write, see, think the word “respect”, I want to bust out in song (which, now that I’ve found the song to link here for this post, I’ll gladly listen to while writing this out). “R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Find out what it means to me!” Well, respect has a lot of meaning to me, and […]
