Another project for the Austrian magazine Servus Magazin I made this nail art sign. (You can find the tutorial to make your own here.) I took it home and it marks now my reading nook and reminds me that it’s important to wind down and calm down.
Ruhe in german means calmness and silence. Fall is the perfect season to remind us that life is not about the noisy, bright moments but also the quiet once.
We need time to recharge our batteries and that comes for me from a silent place. Sometimes I put my headphone on without listening to music or audio books – just to blend out all noise that’s around. I find that really refreshing.
That’s also one thing I love about long walks in the woods or on mountains – there’s this special kind of silence that’s not at all about the absence of sound but the right sound. The wind, the trees, bees and other animals.
In a concrete jungle you don’t hear those anymore and I miss them.
How do you recharge? Any special places that you visit to do so?
