As we near the end of May we finally are encountering some warm weather. It is starting to feel like summer!
The lilacs are finally blooming and the lily of the valley are making an appearance as I clear away the weeds and debris from the garden. Gardening is therapeutic and is akin to clearing the cobwebs from your mind. It allows you to focus on the task at hand and only that. All the issues and dramas of the day fade away as you mindlessly pull weeds or plant some new herbs or flowers.
In times of stress it is often helpful to take stock of what makes you feel better and not what you should do...Sometimes it is a matter of trying various things like going for a bike ride...shopping in a mall anything that takes you out of your regular day-to-day experience and puts you in a new environment is helpful. it is a time to take advantage of that nice sunny day, even if you don't feel like going outside...sit on the back patio and just sit. Make time for yourself to unwind and settle so you are ready to tackle the next challenge that emerges.
