Spring Rejuvenation Tips

Even though it doesn’t seem like spring here in Minnesota, these are our top ways to rejuvenate, renew and refresh yourself just in time for spring: 

1)     Tub time - drink a cup of tea while soaking in a hot bath with your favorite fragrant bath soak. 
2)     Take a mini vacation in your head - visualize yourself on a warm, sandy beach soaking up the sun as you hear the waves crashing.
3)     Make Some Daily Personal Time - take some time each day just for yourself, even if it's just 15-20 minutes. Meditate, sit quietly or say affirmations. Just 20 minutes will energize you and help you maintain a better frame of mind. 
4)     Express gratitude - remind yourself of all the things you're thankful for: your family, friends, your home, and your work. Remember to say "thank you" to those who help you.
5)     Perform small acts of kindness - Performing acts of kindness will help you to feel better about yourself too!
6)     Remember to laugh - laughter can be great medicine. Watch a funny movie, make plans with your funniest friends, or just laugh out loud at nothing!
7)     Breathe deeply - after an especially stressful situation, take a few minutes to breathe deeply. Inhale and count to five and then exhale slowly. As you exhale imagine all your tension leaving your body. 
8)     Permission to be you - Take a break from the image that you have of yourself and the image that you project. Just let yourself be whoever you feel like being in the moment. Give yourself permission to be you!
9)     Eat a healthy lunch - instead of making do with eating fast food, eat something simple, healthy, colorful, fun, and exotic or with wild flavors and textures. Enjoy!
10)  Host a gathering with girl friends - we saved the best way to renew yourself for last. How about getting together and doing facials or pedicures? 

Love to get your hands in the  earth  ? Then don't forget to care for your most important garden tools---your hands, feet and back.

Ten Thoughts on Whole Living

1. True power comes from internal strength, not muscular signature

2. Every interaction has an emotional impact. Handle each one with awareness.

3. A healthy diet is a vibrant, flavorful one.

4. Passion, like fire, requires stoking. Find new ways to intensify it.

5. Personal fitness emerges when you confidently inhabit your body.

6. Know your worth--and accept nothing less.

7. Celebrate the milestones that mean the most to you, not someone else.

8. Simply being present is often the most valuable gift you can give.

9. Solitude feeds your soul, but that doesn't mean you always have to go it alone.

10. Misery may be contagious--but so is joy!

Who Will Remember You?

The following quizzes, and the subsequent paragraph, are attributed to the late Charles Schulz, creator of the comic strip, Peanuts. I'm passing along his thoughts because I think it's important that we realize what is really important in life.

Quiz 1
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

6. Name the last decade's World Series winners.

Quiz 2
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

6. Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.

"The applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners. The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones who cared."

- Charles Schulz

Who will remember you? What will they remember you for?

Thoughts for Thursday

I saw this quote and wanted to share it with you.

"I’ve learned that happiness comes in different forms. It can be found in the blackest thunderclouds or when the earth is withering from heat. It is also in the warm rays of the sun in the midst of pouring rain. It is in the first green leaf of spring peeping out of the cracked bud of a poplar tree. It is in the little white petal working itself out on a branch of an apple tree. It is in the darkness of the night sky with thousands of twinkling stars. It is in the tender look of a loved one. It looks out through shining eyes in family photographs."

it is everywhere
find happiness right where you stand
