What is compassion & are we becoming more compassionate?

Our Cuppa and a Chat topic this month is: Compassion Compassion is a founding principle of Leaves of the World and something we lead with, both as a company and as individuals. Today we are asking: What is compassion & are we becoming more compassionate? "Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive." - Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness We believe that in these times, now more than ever, the most important message to share is one of compassion.  Fear and uncertainty certainly have the power to divide people, and if there has been ever been a time in which those two things have been prominent on such a mass scale it is now.  However,...

Donating tea to those in need during coronavirus

Working as a Digital Nomad

In the digital age we are blessed with an abundance of opportunity to simply log in, click, and get to work. Businesses can be run from mobile devices, meetings made over Skype, and online stores can have global outreach, with endless possibilities. But what exactly is the lure and attraction of working as a digital nomad? Hammocks and Pina Coladas? Potentially. But there is a lot more to working as a digital nomad than just island hopping in Indonesia in between yoga sessions and having deep intellectual conversations around camp fires with Oxbridge graduates living off a trust fund. It’s about finding a sense of purpose, without having to root yourself down to one place; creating something of value, without...

Cuppa and a Chat

In these strange times of unprecedented global uncertainty, it has never been more important to reconnect with ourselves, our health, and others. Many people may be off work, working from home, or be self-isolating in some form. But it is those who are most vulnerable who may struggle the most; the elderly, those with chronic conditions, weakened immune systems, or people who live in rural areas. So that is why we are encouraging a Cuppa and a Chat. In our busy lives and schedules, we often take for granted the time and presence of people in our lives. In being forced to stop and rethink, slow down and take stock, it is important to remember that it is people who...
