15 Ways to savor summer

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Over in this part of the world it’s Summer solstice today. I feel a bit in shock that we are actually talking about summer already! Each season it’s easy to have big plans and then not check many of them off. (hello Spring list) This summer I would like to do things differently! Here are 15 ways to savor summer.

  1. Open windows and blinds, let some sunshine in!
  2. Go to the farmers market, fairs visit the local goodness you have around you.
  3. Create a summer photo series: You can make it themed in so many ways. Mornings, light, by color, general snapshots of your day, nature.
  4. Clear some space: In your schedule, in your surroundings, choose a select number if items to pare down to for a set number of days (the entire summer, a week, a month etc) This could be art supplies, clothing, projects etc.
  5. Choose a book or three to read. Make it something you really want to read no shoulding on yourself!
  6. Get some sidewalk chalk and play (this works if you have kids or not!) Put tic tac toe, hopscotch (note to self, be mindful of your knees lol) write out sayings or words and photograph them (bonus for doing a where I stand foot shot with them!)
  7. Start a new journal (sometimes we just feel we want a fresh start so start a new one, you can always go back to the one you might be sort of using now, or not!)
  8. Blow bubbles, let it be a meditation to you, just watch them as they float around or if you are feeling energetic chase them down!
  9. Lighten up: Eat lighter food (experiment with salads) , get a haircut or play with the color, wear breezy layers, add some fun color or pattern to your current wardrobe, change around your linens a bit. This list could go on and on!
  10. Look up what fruits and veggies are in season and add those into your meals more, sit and savor the sun (safely of course)
  11. Choose a project to start and finish.
  12. Create a summer playlist
  13.  Create a holistic first aid kit (but make it for prevention and solutions so essential oils, ointments, sunscreen, aloe etc. )
  14. Plan something, maybe it’s a summer stay-cation, road trip, a trip you want to take. Spend some time planning (and if you can following through on that plan)
  15. Notice, if you were to take nothing else except for this one from this list that would be a beautiful way to savor your summer. Notice the sounds, the laughter, the creative chaos, the breezes, the flowers and fruits of the season. Simply notice the goodness and even the struggles that are surrounding you. Open yourself to what they have to teach you.

What’s on your summer bucket list?

Connect- Friday 5

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Even though we live in a world that is hyper connected, it’s easy to feel disconnected in so many ways. I want to share 5 ideas of ways to connect.

  1. Connect to yourself, Just breathe. When we stress or are really distracted we tend to hold our breaths. Be intentional and notice your breathing.
  2. Put your device down and look at people you are interacting with. When you are at the store and checking out, make eye contact, when you are asking your loved ones how their day was, look at them.
  3. Ask yourself (in a journal or just ponder) what do I most need right now?
  4. Go outside, connect with nature! It doesn’t matter where you live, I bet you can find a flower, a tree and you can always find the sky! Take a moment to just connect, notice the sounds, colors, feelings of nature.
  5. Reach out, notice people. Reach out to a friend or loved one just to check in. As you are walking around doing various errands notice people, smile, say hello… simply notice others.

15 Inspired Spring ideas

 

Hey Inspiring Souls,

Over in this part of the world it’s Springtime (even if the weather seems confused some days!)

It’s really easy for the seasons to zip by and not to have even slowed down long enough to really savor it.

Here are 15 ideas for an Inspired Spring  (and stay tuned through the season for some more in depth ideas!)

  1. Eat seasonally , find one fruit or veggie that is really in season and savor it
  2. Grab your camera (phone) and capture signs of Spring
  3. Buy some flowers or plants to put around your space. (air plants and succulents are fairly durable!)
  4. Plant something
  5. Start a journal for the season, let it capture your thoughts, ideas, images, seasonal wish list etc.
  6. Do some releasing, create some space. Unsubscribe to things that you always delete anyway or that make you feel bad, unfollow , clean stuff off of your desktop or phone (or put into folders if you rarely use or are unsure if you want to keep) Donate books that feel like shoulds, get rid of that thing that really doesn’t fit you anymore but you keep just in case.
  7. Choose 1 or 2 natural cleaners to start using in your cleaning tasks.
  8. Create a Springtime music playlist
  9. Get outside
  10. Choose a book or 3 to savor
  11. Move some things around, refresh your space, your wardrobe. Use what you have to create more of what you want!
  12. Learn something new or restart something you miss that you haven’t made the time for.
  13. Go to a local farmers market and take in the local goodness. I like to get flowers, a little bit of fruit or veggies depending on what looks good and tacos at ours!
  14. Notice how what you are eating makes you feel. If you notice that things with a lot of sugar or gluten or… make you feel off, bloated, lethargic. Try cutting some of those out of your diet.
  15. Create something, spread paint, stitch something, write, dance, sing. Create something, birth something!

Truth to be… Soul Note

Do you approach yourself as if you are a problem to be solved or a truth to be revealed? These hold very different energies within them.

You don’t need to be fixed, maybe what you need is your truth of where you are in your body and mind to be revealed. You have to reveal it to heal it (and the person who we need to reveal to is ourselves that’s where truth and healing start.
