The harder your work for something, the more you need rest. In our physical bodies, the time we spend resting after a difficult task allow our body to heal and our muscles to become stronger. So rest up – you’ll be stronger for the week ahead!
Never let your life be defined by numbers. You and your life are so much more than any arbitrary measurements we falsely subscribe to success.
Last weekend’s harvest moon has really got me thinking about nourishment. As the seasons change, sometimes so do our priorities. The back to school vibe of September is a great time to check in and figure out what best fills you up – nutritionally, emotionally, even spiritually.
Sometimes you find yourself in a hard spot, and there really isn’t much you can do except for make the best of it. Everyday there is something to keep you going, even if its as simple as the sunrise or a delicious bowl of soup.
If you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment to check in, relax, and just breathe. Find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and listen to your breathe and let the moment pass. Summer can be lovely, but it can also be super busy, so make sure to look after yourself amidst the holiday adventures.
I have said it before when I am running late, and I will likely say it again in the future. Sometimes, if you save something until the very last minute, it only takes a minute to do.
A new study from the Queen Mary University of London indicates that goats lead rich emotional lives. Their research has shown that goats can recognise the calls from their goat friends and distinguish those calls from the sounds of unfamiliar goats, an ability scientists call emotional contagion. The study even showed that goats respond to specific emotions of other goats, for example when their friends are happily enjoying a meal, illustrating that goats have empathy. Empathy is an amazing trait that goes hand-in-hand with compassion – aren’t goats amazing?
If you are confused about how to answer this week, try just saying yes and see what happens. You never know, it might end up being an amazing experience!
I hope that you all are having a fabulous Friday and have an amazing weekend ahead.
Take some time this week to nourish yourself – whether that is through delicious and nutritious food, enjoying some self care, or relaxation. I especially like to nourish myself this time of year with gelato.
