Okay, thanks to one of my fellow colleagues (Soulstice Nutrition) for pointing out that the first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week.
However simplifying your life can happen anytime really. It can incorporate various aspects of your life from physical to psychological etc. And at the same time we have to also remember that simplification doesn't have to be complex or overwhelming or even stressful especially when you narrow the list to what needs to be addressed now and what can wait.
Really, there are things in our lives that can wait even through everything feels like it needs our attention right now. Believe me, I know that concept is foreign because I am infamous for this ideal that everything needs to be done right now to the point that I even try to do it all. Does this sound familiar, yeah I am a work in progress too and I am still learning the true meaning of simplification which isn't the norm is it? Especially when the end result for simplifying is to lessen stress and anxiety.
Furthermore, by simplifying one's life you can bring mental well-being and gain a healthier you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually which can have a domino affect by letting you get better sleep and/or better digestion etc. So what are you waiting for?? You know you and you know what needs to be simplified so my challenge to you is to choose that one area of your life to simplify this week....
Do you need some assistance on figuring out that one area?? Here are some ideas to help get you started...
Woohoo.. Now that you have your area or that one place that needs to be refocused or uncluttered or just simplified-- The next step is to keep it simple and focus your full intention on it by asking yourself-
The kicker is it took a lifetime to get you to where you are today... so this change to simplify your life won't happen in just one day...
Would love to hear from you...
Today, I am thankful for my fellow colleagues... especially in the Integrative Health and Wellness Community. This community truly wants to not only support each other but they also want to help those within their local communities along with around the world. There are some really some amazing people out there.
Furthermore, this is the community I was always told to look for when life was in chaos or in need of change-- the helpers and the healers which this community truly wants to be...
So today I am thankful for my community of fellow helpers and healers.... These people definitely make the path more bearable and smoother than what it really is...
Do you have a community of helpers and healers to be thankful for??

I am thankful for the opportunity to grow fruit and veggies in my yard..
Love how it's helping to put healthy foods on the table along with life lessons for my daughter and a great family bonding time for my family unit...
It also provides a way to relieve stress and provide a sense of accomplishment...
Love getting my hands dirty and seeing everything grow..
What are you thankful for today?? Do you have a garden??
Gardens can be small or large or even in pots...
It's time for the Gratitude Project!! Some of you may remember this from livejournal maybe....
The Gratitude Project runs every year from August 1st to September 21st for this year (this project ends on the 1st day of fall..).
Like mentioned above this began over on livejournal by estaratshirai many years ago now, the Gratitude Project celebrates the abundance in our lives. Every day, participants post something they are grateful for. No repeats--you can be grateful to the same person on different days, but it must be for different reasons. Small gratitudes are fine as well. Participation is not limited so If the Gratitude Project rings true with you, go for it.
