Can The Next Month Be Both Frantic And Lovely?

“Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten”

All too often the end of the year is filled with squishing in as much as possible before the Christmas break, that we neglect finding time for leisure.  

Regular readers would be familiar with Nala my golden retriever. Some may even know that on the last Sunday of each month, I have a non-negotiable commitment to the golden retriever meet-up. This past weekend was the final get-together for the year, and as always, it lived up to expectations. Spending an hour surrounded by golden retrievers who just want to play, receive affectionate pats and chat with others who are equally besotted with my favourite dog breed truly warmed my soul.

While I don't suggest you neglect your responsibilities, such as addressing new business inquiries, planning for the upcoming year, and fulfilling current client requirements, it is crucial not to overlook your leisure time.

Researchers have found multiple benefits to leisure, (click here for my blog) savouring moments (click here for my blog) and taking time to smell the roses (click here for my blog). 

Over the next month during casual conversations instead of describing how hectic things are, I challenge you to think of a little moment where you were able to find delight in something simple and share this with your colleagues and team. To increase your accountability please email me the details of your delightful leisure experience.
