Pinned toot


Hello, nice to meet you!

My name is Tingyi, and I'm a yoga practioner, an art psychotherapist, and a lover of cooking and travel. I live and work in London, UK, originally from Taiwan.

I value the power of compassion, kindness, and forgiveness.

At the moment I am planning and preparing to launch my own tiny private practice space (I welcome collaborations in art, design, etc!). You can check out my website for more information: tingyilai.com

Happy to be here πŸ‘‹πŸŒ±

Completely randomly learned about the flow chart by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. To achieve flow or enter the "zone", a state where you deliberately control your attention instead of forcing it on a task, you need this task to be clearly defined, not too hard or too easy, and which can provide instant feedback. Csikszentmihalyi referred to flow as "an optimal experience" which of course is clearly enjoyable.

It seems kinda obvious but it actually helps putting logical explanations behind feelings.

I caught the sunlight that stayed only for seconds.

Choose to be happy than wait to be happy. May you feel loved wherever you are in the world. 🌈✌🏼

It’s never too late to take steps to attempt to repair any rupture that may have happened.

Have a good night, the world. May you all have a sweet dream. πŸŒ™

In other words, having the ability to say β€˜I love you’ in a million different ways even when things get hard.πŸ˜‰

Yes, we argue a lot.

After each emotional storm, I tend to review photos of us and realise how much happiness there is between us. I am then reminded that it is not having a sky without storms, or work without fatigue, or relationships without disappointments that makes you happy. Being happy is finding strength to forgive, to keep faith high in challenging times, and maintaining love and respect in disagreements.
