August is a wonderful month to Refresh, Rejuvenate and Renew the Spirit! It is a quieter month in the year, as many families vacation and kids have some down time before they return to the academic year. There are actually no designated “Awareness of Cancers” for this month, which is perfect! August is a great month to designate as “Awareness of Health”!!
If there is one thing my patients have taught me is that Our Health, Our Family and Our Friends are the most important aspects of Life!! As parents, we put a lot of time, energy and emotional investment into helping our kids to grow into the Amazing Souls that they were born to be. In order to sustain that level of energy and be the best parents we can be for our children, it is helpful to take a break, have fun and recharge our physical, emotional and spiritual batteries so that we can continue to be the parents our children need us to be for them.
I just returned from a wonderful vacation spent with my Mom, some cousins and some friends….it was a great way to connect with the important people in my life and Recharge my batteries!! I made a point of experiencing the sunrises on the ocean and sunsets on the bay to connect with nature and remind myself of the simple beauty that can be found in everyday life which is available for free! I took long runs on the ocean to let go of the stress and have a renewed sense of calm and peace within!! How do you Recharge your batteries and make time for yourself? Hope that you can make your health Priority #1 this August….it will be a great example for your kids to follow!!
To your Good, Better, Best Health through W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S. : )
