Interview: Mari Jasmine
We spoke to #Faithfullgirl Mari Jasmine about her rituals that assist in maintaining a balanced lifestyle, and what her outlook is for 2021.
“Mari, tell us about any rituals that assist you in maintaining a balanced lifestyle, and what your outlook is for 2021.”
"For 2021 my resolution was to be more intentional. Whether it be for making business decisions or building on the relationships that are important to me — I wanted to feel like I was living my life more consciously. To feel like I was in charge of my life and how I want to live it."
“For me, I think it’s all about having some form of ritual.”
"I’ve noticed that the way I start my mornings have a huge impact on how my day unfolds, and how I make decisions. If I’m able to have a slower start with enough time to journal, make a cup of tea, light some incense, tidy up and meditate before work, I am so much more focused and at calm. For me, I think it’s all about having some form of ritual, and feeling good in the space that I’m in."
“I am able to live a life that is more balanced and peaceful.”
"By avoiding rushing, giving myself enough breathing space between tasks, and setting clearer boundaries between work and rest, I am able to live a life that is more balanced and peaceful."
“If I’m able to give my full attention to what I’m doing at that moment, I’m calmer and happier.”
"I also find myself in a much better headspace when I’m fully engaged in whatever I’m doing, rather than multi-tasking. Again, this applies to work, relationships and even time alone. If I’m able to give my full attention to what I’m doing at that moment, I’m calmer and happier."
