Happy summer, everyone! I can't believe the year is half over. It seems like just yesterday we were making resolutions/setting intentions for the year to come. Some of us were making vision boards and others were taking it to the next level with action plans.
Now, here we are just a couple of days shy of the summer solstice - one of my favorite days of the year - and it's an auspicious time to pause and take inventory.
For those that aren’t familiar with the celestial event, summer solstice is the first day of summer and the longest day of the year, and from then on out the daylight hours grow incrementally shorter.
I think it's the perfect time to reflect, celebrate and make changes as needed.
Here are some questions to think about as you begin reflection:
After you've taken inventory, think about taking simple steps to reprioritize where needed. Schedule time for the things and people who matter; as well as assessing what supports you need to show up for the life you want to live. That support may look like therapy and coaching or may be rooted in spiritual practice, a support group, relationships, community or ideally a mixture of some of the above.
In my own life, I've just decided to work with a personal trainer because they will have the expertise I need to take my health goals to the next level. The right support is everything.
Most of all, it’s important to remember this process does not need to be shame-inducing or stressful. It can be creative and joyful as we pause, assess and re-plan accordingly. I'm here to help!
Till next time,
