How To Create Your Own Perfect Daily Practice

How To Create Your Own Perfect Daily Practice

Once she stopped rushing through life she was amazed how much more life she had time for.

Slowly Golden is a reminder of where we’ve come from, with an honouring of the styles and slower pace of yesteryear; beckoning to the times when summer days feel endless, and simplicity is a way of being with who and what we love most. Cherished memories made and kept for years to come in polaroid and grainy film become etched on hearts and minds, so that long after the ink has faded the laughter remains. We believe in the benefits that come with creating a daily practice, helping to cultivate presence, joy, and a deeper connection with yourself and your surroundings.

Grab a cuppa and dive into our step-by-step guide to creating your own perfect daily practice:

  1. Morning Ritual:

    • Begin your day by perching on your porch steps with a cup of coffee or tea in hand. Take a few moments to savor the aroma and taste, allowing yourself to be fully present in this experience.
    • Journaling: While enjoying your drink, spend some time journaling. Reflect on your intentions for the day, write down any thoughts or feelings that arise, or simply let your pen flow freely on the paper.

  2. Connection with Nature:

    • Plan a daily activity that allows you to connect with nature. (My favourite at the moment is definitely surfing) but it could be going for a bike ride, hiking or simply taking a leisurely walk along the beach. Embrace the slower pace and immerse yourself in the beauty of your surroundings.
    • At sunset, head down to the beach for a stroll. As the golden hour paints the world in a soft glow, allow yourself to be fully present and soak in the peacefulness of the moment. Feel the sand beneath your toes, listen to the sounds of the waves, and appreciate the beauty around you.

  3. Mindful Living:

    • Embrace simplicity in your daily activities. Choose to do less but with greater intention and presence. Before engaging in any task, pause for a moment to ground yourself and bring your attention to the present moment.
    • Take breaks throughout the day to nurture and nourish yourself. Set aside time to sip your favorite hot beverage from a beloved mug. Wear your comfiest sweater and create space for conversations with loved ones or simply enjoy solitude.

  4. Cherishing Memories:

    • Capture moments that evoke a sense of joy and wonder. Keep a polaroid or film camera handy to document special moments in your day-to-day life. Take photos of people, places, or objects that hold significance to you. 
    • Create a physical or digital memory keepsake where you can store these cherished memories. Reflect on them from time to time, allowing the nostalgia and gratitude to bring you joy.

Remember, the goal of this practice is to cultivate presence, joy, and a deeper connection with yourself and your surroundings. You can adapt and modify the practice to suit you and your lifestyle. Allow yourself the freedom to embrace each moment with wonder and to be fully present in the beauty of everyday life.
