Take extra care of yourself as the holidays approach – this can be a joyous time of year but also a time of year that stirs up all sorts of things. Be patient, practice self care and don’t feel bad about eating an extra cookie or two.

Self care isn’t selfish during the holidays

Even as the days go short make sure to embrace the sunshine when you can – it can make your heart sing and vitamin D is good for your health.

Even if there is a chill in the air the sunshine will do you good.

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!

In order to be your best, strongest self, you have to take time to rest.

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.

You are more than just a number.

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.

Be full of hope and gratitude this fall

Where do you belong? Finding friends or family to spend time with has a positive impact. the more social support you have in your life can decrease stress and is statistically correlated with better mental and physical health.

Benefit from the support of your tribe!

One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that my friends living in different parts of the world sometimes send me pictures of goats they encounter during their adventures. My friend Lena sent me a photograph of this goat in France on an island called Noirmoutier near a chévrerie where goat cheese is made. Although only bound to the pasture by a single rope, this goat was content where she was. Take a moment to find contentment exactly where you are – and remember a boundary is only as firm as you want it to be.

Sometimes you find yourself right where you want to be.

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.

Inhale, exhale, allow yourself a moment of quiet rest here and there

Sometimes life can be really difficult and it can feel very unfair. By no means am I an expert in how to handle every challenge, complication or adversity that we encounter throughout our lives. However, even in the darkest of hours, perhaps when it is time to say goodbye to an ideal or a dream or a reality that must end or will never be, there are always glimmers of hope, like streetlights shining on puddles in potholes. For example, tiny, baby goats.

Life is wonderful but hard, luckily we have the internet and digital cameras to make it a bit brighter.

The best experiences I have had are when I have allowed myself to let the odd bits shine out. It is hard to be vulnerable sometimes, and so often we are wrapped up in perceived competitions or over-worried about acceptance that the face we show the world isn’t really our own, but a face we think the word wants to see. Perhaps consider letting that shit go and just showing the world your face every now and then. It might lead to something wonderful.
