Over the last two months, I slowed down significantly. I focused on going out, connecting with friends and family, beach days and long summer evening strolls.
I ate lots of seafood and ice cream.
I read a lot and stared at the ocean for hours on end..
Slowing down and taking an easy pace allowed me to get off the hamster wheel.
I became very connected to myself and reconnected with others around me.
I reset my relationship with my kids..
We stopped fighting and arguing..
And talked more..
I did a lot less.
I become more flexible about doing laundry and dishes.
The high focus was on having fun, relaxing and staying connected.
I realized that this was the way I wanted to live my life.
Not just during the summer months but all year round..
Made me start to wonder what GIFTS from summer can I bring into the rest of my year?
Here is my list..
Once a week, take the time to have a family day (or maybe a few hours) where it is just me and the girls spending time with each other without any distractions.
Read for fun 10-15 minutes before bedtime.
Walk/yoga/zumba at least 3 times per week…
Connect with like minded people once or twice per month.
What’s on your list?
