Today is …. #38

Standard

….. a day to do write a letter….. to your future self

Sit sown today

and write a short encouraging letter to your future self.

Include a happy moment you experienced recently,

give yourself some advice, some inspiration,

write something which will make you smile in a years time.

You can include a goal you want to achieve if you like.

This was a letter I wrote to myself 5 years ago and I opened it 1 year after.

Keep it safe somewhere,

It is great fun finding the letter a year later.

Today is …. #37

Standard

….. a day to enjoy my home…

Today I am going around from room to room and

look at all the beautiful pictures on my wall,

the plants I have,

the little nicknacks I have displayed.

I look at them consciously with different eyes

and a thankful heart.

I really cherish what I have

to make me feel happy in my home.

Today is …. #24

Standard

….. a day to smell…..the world.

 

Wherever you go today

wherever you find a flower,

put your nose closer and smell the scent.

Soon you will notice that even different roses have varied scents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A feast for your nose today!

 

Live simple,

love well,

and take time 

to smell the flowers

along the way.

Heatwave – take good care of yourself

Standard

There is a heatwave in Europe

In the Black Forest are 35 degrees Celsius.

 

Separated by the Channel, us here in England have it very pleasant with 21 degrees.

Only Saturday will be hot with 29 degrees, then back to 21.

Thinking of you, all my friends who are in this heat,

Do stay safe and keep cool!

Some tips to help in this heat.

  • Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. You can open the windows for ventilation when it is cooler.
  • Avoid the heat: stay out of the sun and don’t go out between 11am and 3pm (the hottest part of the day) if you’re vulnerable to the effects of heat.
  • Keep rooms cool by using shades or reflective material outside the windows. If this isn’t possible, use light-coloured curtains and keep them closed (metallic blinds and dark curtains can make the room hotter).
  • Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.
  • Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol – water, lower-fat milks and tea and coffee are good options. You can also drink fruit juice, smoothies and soft drinks, but they can be high in sugar. Limit fruit juice or smoothies to a combined total of 150ml a day, and choose diet or sugar-free soft drinks.
  • Listen to alerts on the radio, TV and social media about keeping cool.
  • Plan ahead to make sure you have enough supplies, such as food, water and any medications you need.
  • Identify the coolest room in the house so you know where to go to keep cool.
  • Wear loose, cool clothing, and a hat and sunglasses if you go outdoors.
  • Check up on friends, relatives and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.

 

Sending you cool thoughts, love 

and some Iced tea!
