As summer winds down, the nights and weekends start to include fire pits and heartier foods to keep warm. It’s still very pleasant outside but there is a growing hint of a new season approaching, complete with slight touches of turning leaves and cooler nights.
These cooler nights give us a chance to take a minute to enjoy the scene from our porch or deck and just enjoy the time we are blessed to be given.
As we take in the sights and sounds of that around us outside we can use this as opportunity to include a moment of self-care as well.
Since most of us are uber speed busy these precious times when we can just sit a minute and look at the scenery are often few and far between. We may even find ourselves so hyped up and stressed we can’t easily switched to a relaxed mode.
When you have the chance to sit outside in the warm yet refreshing coolness of a September evening, do it. Even if its for 5 minutes.
Let your mind drift and relax your facial muscles and the tension between your shoulders.
Here are some ways to enhance this quiet yet incredibly short time you may have to enjoy some quiet outdoor meditation and relaxation.
Even though the weather may be shifting, mosquitoes and other pests are still out in force in many areas. Don’t let them ruin your time outdoors.
