Kick Back It’s Summer!
Summer is finally in full force, and the living is easy! Do you notice how everything seems promising during summertime? The plants are in full bloom and the sun feels great on your skin. The longer days give you boundless energy, and our bodies crave more raw foods. Why not harness this energy, ride the wave of summer, step out of your comfort zone and try something new?!
Throughout the year we live at an intense pace (physical, emotional and mental), and we often get stuck in routine, either for the sake of efficiency or out of fear of unfamiliar territory. The lack of variety in doing the same things over and over stagnates not only our minds, but also our bodies and hearts.
Are you hesitant to break your routine? Fear and excitement have the same physiological expression in our bodies; it is our mind that classifies the feeling as either positive or negative. So the next time you consider a change in routine and your mind says “I’m scared!” Feel the fear and do it anyway!! You will feel proud!
What is something you have never done before or that you have wanted to do for a long time? Choose your own adventure: organize a bike trip, take a dance class, do some exotic traveling or set a goal for a new personal challenge. This summer, I am joining the 5 men in my life and learning to play golf! For my birthday, we are attending a 3-day camp as a family. I am very excited.
Whatever adventure calls to you, use this summer to make it happen and enjoy your life. Increasing new experiences and excitement in your life can decrease your dependence on artificial stimulants like caffeine and sugar, leading to more vibrant health.
