To experience the beauty of a moment, you must be present to accept it. When you “stop to smell the roses,” the challenge is to smell those roses in that moment—to be open to the uniqueness of the now.

The week of July 28, we'll be collaborating with mindfulness educator and publisher More Than Sound to explore mindfulness as it relates to the senses. More Than Sound will be sharing photos we’ve curated on this theme via Instagram tagged with #DrHbeauty.

We invite you to share your own photos on this theme on Instagram using the same hashtag. Early next week, we’ll have a random drawing of all the people who submitted photos, giving five people a gift package of a Dr. Hauschka Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence and More Than Sound’s CD “Relax: 6 Techniques to Lower Your Stress.”*


The Beauty of Every Moment: Trust Your Senses

With so much of our time spent engaged with phones, tablets, computers and TV screens, our experience of the world and ourselves feels both vastly more vivid, but removed—as if at a distance. Being able to exchange our thoughts and feelings with others in real time is exhilarating, and can benefit our lives in many ways. But the volume of information we’re juggling at any given moment is often overwhelming and can stand in the way of an authentic experience of the here and now.
 
 
Dr. Hauschka Skin Care was developed in the 1960s, when our modern world was being born. We were racing for the moon, the flickering image of the television had become commonplace, electronics were transforming our everyday lives and fast food was revolutionizing our eating habits. As the world was busy speeding up, Dr. Hauschka Skin Care asked in its quiet way for people to take the time to live in the moment with care and reverence for the self.
 
To experience the beauty of a moment, you must be present to accept it. When you “stop to smell the roses,” the challenge is to smell those roses in that moment—to be open to the uniqueness of the now. The same is true of those moments of reflection and caring for oneself. The key is to find the beauty—to find your own beauty—right here, in this moment.
 
 
Whether cleansing your skin, standing barefoot on a beach, or even while typing a text message—when you give yourself the freedom to let your senses offer you the benefits of their natural skills, the beauty of life’s moments opens up to you, surprising, remarkable and profound.
