Remember to take time to smell the roses.
Summer in the Midwest seems to come and go in a flash. We all run wild to get outside and play, to attend summer events, gather with friends and family, take a much needed vacation or simply get in as much pleasure as possible. This is the natural pace of this season's cycle. Nature is bursting with beauty. Birds are chirping in full song and energy is naturally expanding. The glorious sun extends its light into the early evening hours, which gives the illusion there's more time in a day. Give yourself full permission to ENJOY the light of each day. Make a decision to find your way to nature surroundings, like forests, parks or community gardens. Nature nourishes every cell of your being! It activates your life-force energy and replenishes the spirit.

Another way to get energized in body, mind and spirit is through the foods you eat during the summer months. It's the perfect time of year to break free from processed and convenient foods you may be habitually used to. Nutrient dense "superfoods" of summer are second to none. As a holistic practitioner and coach, I encourage you make time for shopping at local farmers markets, not only is it better for the environment but it's fun! If the farmers market is out of reach, at the very least, purchase locally grown/close to home, in-season edibles at your grocery store. By purchasing local fresh veggies and fruits, you are getting great nutritional value and you will be contributing less to greenhouse emissions on the planet. So eat up! Experiment with summer veggies and fruits as your main course for your meals and enjoy the animal proteins on the side. It is simply shifting your perception about what's on your plate.
