The spoon trick

IMG_3106Six days to Christmas, actually it is only five days for Swedes around the world because we celebrate on Christmas Eve, and people are starting to feel a bit stressed. It is time to recharge your mental and physical batteries, and do the spoon trick. Sit comfortable in a chair, take a deep breath and start counting backwards 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and feel how your body starts to relax. In one of your hands, you hold a spoon. Keep taking deep breaths and let all your worry, and stress float away. Let your mind drift away, maybe to a place in the sun, or to a mountaintop. Keep taking deep breaths, relax and let yourself drift off to sleep. When your hand that holds the spoon is totally relaxed it will fall to the ground and you will wake up. You will now feel relaxed, refreshed and revitalized.  //Marianne

  3. I read once that Picasso would sit in a chair and do that. When the spoon hit the floor, he resumed his tasks! I have the gift of taking power naps, sometimes ten minutes,and I’m recharged.
