I’d consider our family active. We jog, play tennis and take walks together. We love the outdoors. Even on holidays abroad, they’re always on our itinerary. I do Pilates and yoga almost every day mainly to keep my heart healthy. My cardio says whatever I’m doing, they seem to be working because my blood pressure has gone down over the years and has stabilised.
Movement is vital for our family.
But I know so is stillness…
One fine evening we went to Lower Peirce Reservoir. It’s one of the beautiful nature reserves here in Singapore and which many visit for its hiking trails and gorgeous sunsets.
We walked for a bit, did the Bamboo Trail, but night was fast approaching.
“Let’s just take it slow,” wise words from my hubby. And so by the water, we slowed down, sat, and just watched the sky change colours.
Here are some of the photos I took during our short walk, right before we bathed in the stillness at sunset.
