My weekly nourishment continued this week with a focus on putting down my Smartphone in the evening and ‘doing’ rather than the mindless distraction of scrolling, tapping and ‘liking.’ I’ll write more about this in a different post but it’s something that I intend to continue.
My nourishing moments this week include
An early morning Sunday trail run in the light. I run at 7am on a Sunday morning and for the past weeks it’s been dark and on the roads. No running fills my soul like a trail run through the local country park.
Whilst this week has been about the red moon, I’ve been wowed by the morning skies, the colours have been spectacular, the pinks and greys beautiful.
We’ve had our 6 monthly check up with the dentist and all was fine. I’ve switched recently to a bamboo brush and natural toothpaste with no noticeable difference.
Whilst I’m not watching Marie Kondo’s new tv programme, I have been revisiting her book which I read a few years ago. I tend to pick what I think I can do and one of the best pieces of advice was to organise your wardrobe in colours. I did it before and it worked well but of course without maintaining it weekly it all mixed together. This week I have rearranged my clothes into colours and it does help with choosing outfits for the day. I also donated some clothes to charity and threw away (recycled at the tip) a few loved but worn or damaged items. I love Kondo’s motto of only keeping things which spark joy.
Given the clothes sorting, I did some work on choosing clothes for the spring and summer, courtesy of a few magazines, the Next catalogue and a White Stuff mailing shot. I tried not to go online but to look for inspiration, jot down a few ideas, cut out a few pictures etc..
Finally, Mr S works some weekends so on those that he doesn’t we try and do something together as a family. Today a local attraction was offering half price entry for locals so we took advantage and spent our day looking at the animals, learning about the conservation work and just walking around in the fresh winter air. It did us all good and as we were well wrapped up, I love a hat, scarf and globves combo, it was a pleasant and enjoyable trip.
