The Speed of Spring!


“It’s spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.” 

- Rainer Maria Rilke

With winter in our rearview mirror, the stress of busyness abounds! Need stress relaxation? Try slowing to the speed of Spring! Follow the suggestions below to release and let go of your need to control:

* Spend even several minutes outside with an acute awareness of the sounds of Spring!

* Take a walk around your yard, or around a park to notice the variety of ways that plants are awakening, budding and emerging.
* Spend time not just cleaning your yard from winter, but tending to an area that you will soon plant!

Sound simple, exactly!! Enjoy all of the uncomplicated pleasures that Spring has to offer!!!
