August is a great time to let the last warm rays of summer soak deep into your bones. Let’s make the most of this transition from summer to fall by taking some ME-Time or ME-Treats!! Taking time for yourself is not self-indulgent, actually it restores you so you can be your best self for others.
When you change your thoughts or feelings from Ho Hum to Happy, Fulfilled and Peaceful then the people, places and things around you change too and that creates situations that are aligned with the happy, fulfilled, and peaceful YOU.
You can see why HOW YOU FEEL is really important. Wayne Dyer says “NOTHING is as important than that you FEEL GOOD”!!! Everything that comes to you is in direct relationship to this inner energy so.. why not stop for 5 minutes and give yourself a reward for being you! This time does not need to be a week-long retreat or a daylong seminar or anything out of the ordinary. It is taking your normal ordinary day to do what you love or what makes you smile. As Mary Oliver says, “Let the soft animal of the body love what it loves.”
Some ideas for your personal ME-Treat!
First thing in the morning I invite the sun to fill my body as I breathe in the warm light. Sunlight and fresh air are health-giving and uplifting and what’s more they are completely FREE!! Follow the rest of the day with quickie small indulgences that remind you that you are special. They can change your focus instantly from blah to Yee-ha! A dab of rose oil on your heart chakra, whipped cream in your coffee, wildflowers for your bedside table, a glance of a photo of your loved ones, the Victory pose in the bathroom mirror, all are simple ways to invoke the inner smile.
Take time to gather your repertoire of ME treats this month!! By the time Fall rolls around your good energy factory will be in full production. Not only will the vitality and serenity create happy molecules for you but for the whole planet and those around you. A little selfishness can be the most generous act of all!
