Slowing down & enjoying life!

One of my New Years resolutions was healthy ways for healthy days, I was beginning to think it really wasn’t going that well. Then I was reminded how fast, dramatic and stressful life can be. However this January I have been feeling relaxed and rested. I eased my way into the New Year. January  has been a month of camping, walking, reading and relaxing with family. It has been the best way to enjoy the summer, especially when it is the long school holiday break . My slow and relaxing month of January has been good for my mental health. Also I got to try something new,  barefoot bowling  and was challenged with some bush walking at Wilson’s Promontory.   Now I need to set a SMART goal to get me back to the gym in February. I have been exploring goals for this intention of healthy ways for healthy days, and coming up with a goal and action plan.

 

I sat outside today on this blissful summers afternoon writing this blog post. Two birds sat on the tv aerial musically tweeting away, it seems they had so much to say. My dog Little Miss Popularity kept me company and enjoyed rolling her fluffy self in the grass. It was blissfully  relaxing sitting outside under the leafy  lipstick maple tree with a light breeze blowing past me. I think this quote by writer Henry James sums it up perfectly.

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
― Henry James
