After the success of the round-up of self-care activities you can practice during spring, I decided to do a similar article for this season. Because to me autumn is all about comfort and coziness: The perfect time to practice self-care. But I also find it an ideal time to make room for new beginnings after summer. This top 10 is inspired by those themes! I hope these fall self-care ideas will inspire you to do lovely, if not great things.
Last month I have a read a lot of interesting articles which I would like to share with you! September was also the month I went on holiday with my family, where I finished a brick of a novel (one of many in the amazing series) and watched a surprisingly smart comedy.
Last August I realized it’s time to adapt some new healthy habits. A goal I look forward to achieve, as I have fond memories of some of my old routines! I also spent time watching some very good series with the Mister, and I decided to read an old literary classic.
Last year I read an about the joy of barefoot walking. Instead of writing it off as a new-age peculiarity I chimed in that I used to roam the woods barefoot as a kid by days on end, with dark soles and a light mood. From then on I felt I should give the concept another try. This is an article about the benefits of barefoot walking, and how I put barefoot walking to the test!
This July was slow and warm. Although I managed to spend a lot of quality time with my family – a commendable result of being forced to take things easy due to the heat – I am looking forward to easier temperatures! I did manage to type out two heat-related articles and finish a trilogy of books and three seasons of a dramady series. Check it out in this Wellness Roundup for July 2018!
There’s a beautiful expression I try to live by: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” This expression has always appealed to me because:
A) You shouldn’t waste your life waiting for better times to come and
B) I love me a bit of rain, no matter the season
Unfortunately, I can’t really remember the last time the soil around here has seen a little rain. And that in a country which is famed for dreary summers.
Summer has just started, and it has been bringing us weeks of blistering heat already! Although I am blessed with a well-insulated and cool home, I do try my best to keep it that way. So as soon as the temperature rises over 25C I put a lock on both the stove and the oven, and resort to what I lovingly call “cold cooking” – which truth be told, doesn’t involve any cooking at all. It is a sure way to keep the house cool for as long as possible! I’d like to take this opportunity to share my favorite and healthy no cook meal recipes with you, perfect for the summer days yet to come.
June went by in a heartbeat! I struggled to find time to blog – but succeeded by writing both a long article and creating a new challenge. I had some close animal encounters which I shared on Twitter, and I binged a mental-health themed series which will get a second season this August. Read all about it in the Wellness Roundup for June 2018!
