August Intentions + Cultivating Joy
I'm super excited for this new month. I was up early this morning and took some quiet time to set my intentions. It's birthday month for both Greg and so I'm calling in fun and cultivating joy. I've also set a big goal for my business so I'm declaring August the month of celebration!
+ Read more fiction - I used to be such an avid reader but these days I rarely take the time to pick up a book, unless it's personal growth or business related. I want to make time to read stories that I can get lost in (let me know your fiction recommendations below!).
+ Daily walks - I'm setting myself the challenge of getting up earlier to go for a walk. I walk the dogs each day but I want to make time to go for a walk by myself to move my body and meditate.
+ Cultivate Joy - I'm definitely guilty of being quite a serious person and I often find it hard to fully relax, so this month I'm looking for ways to allow myself to experience more joy. I'm thinking afternoon dance parties for one, listening to country music whilst I work and making more time for play.
I also have an overall intention for the rest of this year, to make my wellness a priority.
If you've been around these parts for a while, you will know that not too long ago I was diagnosed with PCOS and I'm working on managing the symptoms naturally (post coming on this soon).
A huge factor in all of this is lifestyle and I've set an intention to make some key changes. The last 5 years have been all about my business, and as a result I've let my approach to whole wellness slide. So I'm on a journey to reintroduce movement and fitness, and nourish my body with healthy food choices.
If you want to follow along, I've created a new Instagram account where I'll be sharing my progress - you can find me @gem_wellness
Here's to a month of magic! <3
