It’s August! Wow – the last month of the summer. Shame the weather here in England hasn’t been better!
New month, and new focus for my Health & Happiness Project. In August I plan to explore and write about everything to do with sleep.
I’ll be darkening my room, trying to have a consistent bedtime, cooling my bed down, walking outside every day before midday, bathing in Epsom salts and lavender essential oils, taking magnesium and a few other strategies which I will write about in due course.
Some of my favourite books about sleep are shown here in this photograph:
- Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
- The Sleep Book by Dr Guy Meadows
- Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson
I am going to purchase another book I have been wanting to read that fits with this month’s theme – The Circadian Code by Satchin Panda.
I’m going to explore ways to reduce stress in August. Stress is one of the biggest impediments to happiness and finding ways to reduce stress can have a huge impact on our daily lives.
I’ll be writing about some of my favourite stress reducing activities such as meditation, gratitude, 10 minutes of peace and calm, walking, foraging, mindfulness, baths, essential oils and candles.
I’ll also be using Action for Happiness’ August focus and calendar: Altruistic August 2021 – daily actions to help you be kinder to others (and yourself too).
Altruism is vital for the human race to survive and thrive; and each of our lives is supported by countless kind acts from other people. Yet in our world today, so much is directing us to think only about ourselves – and we often forget the happiness that comes by caring for others. We want to change that. This August Action for Happiness asking everyone to take one kind act per day. Let’s create a wave of kindness to spread around the world.
Taking in the Good
Also – since I find it so helpful to boosting my happiness and mood – I’ll also still be ‘taking in the good’ like I have in previous months – noticing and savouring the good things that happen each day, whether big or small, and writing three good things down each day.
