There is always something so satisfying about the act of about layering and it is not driven by the seasons. Being entwined in a throw creates an immediate sense of comfort, peace, calm and safety. You find yourself feeling secure and see your body and mind slow down into a sleepy meditative state.
The cosy cocoon created by the throw is the ultimate slow activity reminding us to stop and wind down be it at a stressful time in your life or a reminder each day or night to stop and disconnect from everything that you are doing to find your centre. Throws can also instantly add texture and colour changing the whole dynamic and energy of a space. On the bed, on the sofa, at your desk, in the car, on a picnic; the throw is your constant companion.
As time waits for no-one, it is so important to not wait until tomorrow but try and find the slow moments in your present day and focus on the elements of simplicity that are important to you and the intention behind those moments. My simple living moment I love is being wrapped up under my charcoal throw with a cup of herbal tea watching the flicker of a single candle listening to music that moves my soul - the charcoal is my favourite colour throw as it reminds me of the dark beauty of shale rock and the fragility of life.
