Far away from everyday life, on top of the world at home

Where are you with your thoughts at the moment? Longing for a deep snow-covered mountain slope with skis on your feet in Ski amadé, the next project at work or cleaning the kitchen, which is still so messy after cooking.

Your thoughts have a lot to do with how you feel in your day-to-day life

And maybe your everyday life is a bit like Groundhog Day at the moment? If that's the case, then I would like to invite you on an exciting adventure. Adventures begin in the mind and with how you are feeling. So that's what we're going to "tap into" now. Only because you're not standing on a sunlit powder slope right now, doesn't mean that you can't "beam" yourself there on the spot. I'll tell you how. Let's start the adventure.

You would have certainly experienced many wonderful ski days in Ski amadé over the past years

Some were enjoyed with sunshine and glistening ski slopes and some were perhaps a bit dull and grey. Take a moment and think about a ski day that is still fresh in your mind. You still have the pictures and memories of it in your head. Because we have memories stored forever, if we want to, and we should fall back on the beautiful ones as often as possible. Have you already recreated that one super nice day of skiing? Can you recall the images and feelings of it? Very good.

Then it's time to start "beaming"

I invite you to carry on with a paper and pen. It is not absolutely necessary, but it is a good help if you want to quickly put yourself in the situation or the memory again. Write down everything you can remember about that ski day. How did the day start, what excited you about it, what appealed to all of your senses, what images come to mind, how was the snow on the slopes, the weather, the view? How were you feeling on that day? Just write without putting too much thought into it. When you write or think about it, do you already notice how the perfect skiing day felt, how much joy you experienced? If so, then go one step further.

Here's what to do first:

After writing or thinking, lean back in your chair for about 5 minutes and close your eyes. Now, as the ski racers like to do before a race, go into "medias res" and go through the ski day completely, inwardly. Start at the highest peak, visualise the view as you perceived it, feel the snow under your skis and then let yourself go with the feeling you experienced. Let your mind and feelings sink into this one day of skiing. Let go of all other distracting thoughts and let yourself go to that sublime feeling on the mountain. 

After these 5 minutes, you can make notes again about the images, thoughts and feelings, so that you can be beamed far away from everyday life at any time. In this way: Far away from day-to-day life, high up on the mountains at home. Anytime and anywhere.

If you want to share your impressions with others, just share your thought pictures here on the blog.
