I’m seeking your little gems of zen!
We all have them – little tricks (activities, places we go, lifestyle choices) that help relax us; make us feel more peaceful; restore some balance to us physically, mentally and spiritually; and these generally result in a feeling of enhanced wellbeing!
You may have noticed that I started a new guest post series in late January this year, called Zen Tip Tuesday (#ZTT).
I have noticed that far too many people are living in a state of stress. I was one of them. Living with chronic stress is a very serious health risk. I will write more on this soon.
In the meantime, the truth is that life is wonderful but let’s face it – life can be tough. Some people are thrown more curve balls than others but ultimately none of us get through life without challenges. There’s all manner of things that we could be faced with during our lifetimes: stress, anxiety, grief, frustrations, worry, sadness, illness, pain, trauma, and more.
I think most of us would like to be able to handle these challenges that life throws at us better and most of us would like to feel more peaceful, relaxed and calm. Agree?
So my hope is to create a lovely collection of gems of zen, as a resource and to inspire and help people going through difficult times or just wanting a bit more calm in their days and an improved ability to manage stress. You never know what little gem might strike a chord with you and make a world of difference! I would like to run this series at least until December 2019 and to do that I will need more guest posts. So this post is me standing on a box (cos vertically challenged) with a megaphone calling on anyone interested to come forth and fill my Tuesdays with their gems of zen!
The graphic below provides more information and detail, but you can also read more at these links:
ZTT Link-Up – I’m trialling a ZTT Link-Up Party – it’s got a few loyal supporters so far (thank you!) but please help spread the word! BTW – there’s some great tips at this link on what kind of posts fit the ZTT theme.
Here is where you can read all the featured Gems of Zen (ZTT guest posts) published so far: ZTT POSTS
WHO CAN GUEST POST AS PART OF THE ZTT SERIES?
Anyone world wide. Bloggers. Business owners. Anyone who lives and breathes (you don’t need to have a blog or a webpage) and has some gems of zen to share. Your gem of zen does not need to be fancy or a popular trend (but if it is that’s ok too)! I want to hear of all the little simple things that people of all walks of life do to help themselves obtain some sense of zen.
WHAT’S THE GUEST POSTING PROCESS?
I’ve got the routine all sorted and make it as easy as possible for you. You are given a date that your post is due to me and that date is 3 weeks prior to the publish date. I will send you a reminder email 2 weeks prior to your due date, if the post has not already been received. All information you need about writing a guest post for ZTT and what you need to send me can be found in the graphic above and at the links provided above.
Good stuff for me: your unique gem of zen as a contribution to ZTT!
Good stuff for you: I will include a bio about you and links to your blog/webpage and social media within the post as well as share the post on all my social media.
WHEN IS THE NEXT FREE GUEST POST DATE?
At the time of writing this post, I have guest posts for every Tuesday up until mid-late April. I would like to try and have posts for every Tuesday up until December 2019. If you’re reading this post at a date later than which it was published (7 March 2019) go here to see the current next free guest post publish date.
GOT A GEM OF ZEN TO SHARE?
I’d love to read your gem of zen and have you join the ZTT train! If you’re interested, send your suggested topic to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll go from there!
If you want to test the waters a bit first, why not link-up to the fledgling ZTT Link-Up? It opens at 6am on a Tuesday and closes at 5pm the following Friday.
If zen is not your thing, that’s ok too! I hope that you’ll enjoying reading some of the ZTT posts on Tuesdays and thank you for reading through to here!
Peace out & ciao for now,
