Breaking Out Of Character
Are you anything like me? They call us Type A. Driven. Go getters. Reliable, hard working & caring. Always excited for the next project, person or experience. It makes for an interesting and exciting life. And then there's the darker side. The side that doesn't know how to (maybe doesn't even want to?) stop. The part of us that likes to spend a few hours or maybe a day in a little village called "satisfaction" but hasn't been able to find a house to settle in to. Or perhaps you're the opposite? Type B's certainly seem to have things figured out when it comes to enjoying the moment!
Whichever type you are, one way to access the less available parts of your personality is to pay closer attention to your senses. I'm learning what it feels like, looks like, smells like and tastes like when I'm not thinking about the future or something other than what's happening right now. Tuning in more acutely to my senses has turned out to be an excellent barometer for gauging what my body, mind or emotions might benefit from in the next hour, day or week.
What I'm finding is that when I'm present, I know exactly when to harness my productive nature and when to kick back, relax, and let ease, grace and creativity flow. You have a personal and natural rhythm in a day, a week, a month and a year. It's not rigid. It's fluid. If you learn how to respect it, there are rich rewards in your level of satisfaction. And here's the best part: sometimes relaxing is actually the best strategy for achieving results! I often notice a measurable bump in my financial realm during or after focusing on my own relaxation. Cool, right?!
As with most aspects of life, my lived experience is showing me that it's a good idea to have access to both extremes. To be able to be super productive is certainly an asset. But to then be able to tune out of the outside world and pay attention to my world can be equally as rewarding.

Let The Sun Shine In!
A generation ago, sunscreen was a luxury. For this generation, it's become a necessity. Hello ozone depletion! Now, there's reason to second guess our collective fear of all thing solar. It turns out, some sunlight does us a world of good in the Vitamin D department. Educate yourself and enjoy these glorious sunshine-filled months!
