Take Mini-Breaks Every Day | MINDFUL MONDAY

We always know when our body feels stressed or overwhelmed. However, we don’t always respond to it. Our first instinct is to ignore that feeling. “It will go away.” It is crucial to recognize this response and to change it. It might not go away. Take a minute to let your body (and mind) relax. If you choose to ignore it, it will build and build until it’s too much for you to handle. Don’t let it get that far. Give yourself little breaks every day. Especially at stressful moments. Take a minute to breathe, let your shoulders relax and clear your mind. It doesn’t have to take more than 5 minutes. After this moment of complete relaxation, continue your work.

But today it’s time for homemade hummus! Pumpkin hummus. A while back I tried this store-bought pumpkin hummus in one of my taste tests (Dutch) and both me and my boyfriend liked it a lot. And so I decided to make my own version. A version without added sugar and less salt. It turned out delicious (if I may say so myself). I’ve made this hummus a couple of times now and each of those times the batch hasn’t lasted more than a few days. Gone in a jiffy. That good.
