Remember how our mothers use to chide us and say, "You should try to stop and smell the roses once in a while honey." Well, advances in technology have combined with advances in our stress!
We look forward to summer as a time when we can relax, unwind, and enjoy ourselves. As the song goes, “summertime and the living's easy.” So…how’s it going? Is your expectation of summer aligning with your lived experience? Or are you noticing that more than half of summer is gone, and you don’t know how that could have happened?
Many of you have heard me tell the story of how my hubby and I attempted to mindfully eat. I was simply trying to stop multi-tasking, which I know lessens my IQ. I thought it was a double bonus that research was telling me that if I could not multitask while eating I may actually be able to lose weight. Without dieting yet!
