1. Live in your day!
Drop “yestermorrow” Create an August of no regrets
2. Get to a farmers market.
Buy something you never tasted before.
3. Create happiness.
Use my happiness formula and let go of expectations and focus on hopeHappiness = Reality – Expectations + Hope
4. Move your body.
Your body and mind are intimately connected. Remember your brain is the master control system for your body’s movement, the way you move can also affect the way you think and feel.
Dr. Srini Pillay states that “Working out, going on a meditative walk by yourself, or going for a synchronized walk with someone, you may gain access to a “back door” to the mental changes that you desire without having to “psych yourself” into feeling better.
5. Walk outside barefoot for 10 minutes each day
Walking outside is also known as “earthing” which means walking barefoot on soil, grass or sand. Sidewalks don’t count.
Studies are showing the health benefits of “earthing” by reducing inflammation, improving sleep , decreasing blood viscosity which is a risk factor in heart disease and regulating your endocrine and nervous systems.
Savor the last days of summer and when the snow is flying like here in Minneapolis you will have no regrets!
What is on your wish list for August? We can’t wait to hear!
