Summer in NE was short but amazing this year. Weather wise for sure. Now that we are in full stride with fall, I thought it important to take note of a few things that will help the transition into this next, notoriously hectic season.
Essential Activity Only
Do things that help you to stay in the "why" state. What do I mean by "why" state? Good question. I mean, "why am I working so much?" "why am I so busy?", "why are there so many things to do?" If you can justify the level of business activity with noble and purposeful things, then by all means carry on. For example, I'm working a lot to provide for my family, and other loved ones who have less. I'm busy now because I want to create more time in the future to do nobler things. You get the idea. If you try to put yourself in the "why" state, and cannot come up with sound reasons for the level of business activity, then it's time to strip things down. I'd suggest reading a great book like Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less, it surely helped me.
Body Care With Natural Products
There's also the practical things to do to settle your mind, so you can do whatever the things are in front of you, better. Use products that assist your body, not harm. We all use products daily, for cooking, cleaning, hygiene, etc. Make sure your products are as natural and safe as you can possibly control. The cleaner the product, the better it is for you. Environmental toxins are like "the invisible elephant in the room." It's very rarely considered in questions by your doctor when asking about why you are not doing well. Audit the things you put in, on and around your body. Use products, that not just smell good, but are good to smell. Like my lotion line. Take Sporty LIFE for example. Besides the great effects it has on your skin, muscles and physical benefits, there's the happiness factor it aids in when you take a wiff of it while your rub it on. Most folks who use it say "It feels uplifting" to "I just love the smell" after doing so: with a big smiles on their faces.
Health Begins With Family
Finally, take time to notice changes in the family, for example in my family, as soon as school starts, many people get sick, and my son and I are usually prone to bringing home something. So I boost our immune systems with extra supplements, take extra precaution in sleep, and cleaning items around the home. These steps are just a few. The bottom line is, I know it's coming and the proactive planning helps us to stay a little healthier. Who doesn't want that?!
Best to you as the navigate this ever so busy time of year.
