5 ways the Summer makes you more productive

 

So it’s the Summer.  School’s out for how many weeks?!  You’ve got all the usual daily stuff to do (except the school run, hurray!)  and children to entertain or at the very least keep alive and stop from getting bored.  It sounds like a mess but here are 5 ways that Summer makes you more productive.  Yes, really!

5 ways the Summer makes you More Productive

Firstly the days are longer which means there’s more light

Sarah from Digital Motherhood says “The sun motivates me! I find it much easier to get up earlier when the mornings are lovely and bright, and if it’s sunny I’m much happier and less lethargic and lazy. Sometimes I think I’m solar powered”

And more light generally makes us more awake and that means more energy

(at least for a little while. Maybe.)

Victoria at Lylia Rose says “Early light mornings mean I’m super productive in the morning, before the kids get up and thanks to the light. I’d definitely struggle getting up at 6am or earlier in the winter, but in the summer it’s not so hard. I find I’m at my most motivated first thing and get a lot more done than in the day time or evening.

Another advantage of more daylight, says Lyndsey from Me him the dog and a baby is “There is more daylight later in the evening so I actually feel like working until later in the day.

Juggling means that I’m much more focussed with my blog and everything really. 

When I sit at my desk, I zone in, get stuff done and then I can zone out again for a little while.

“Being a mummy of 5, a childminder and a blogger I know my time is more limited during the summer holidays.” says Claire from thismummyrocks.  “I seem to plan out my time more efficiently so I get more free time to spend with my family or self care. Plus the days are longer so I can fit in an extra hour here and there.

 

In between the focussed moments, I spend time outside

Time with our 8yo playing games, reading a book and just zoning out.  I find this brilliant for getting the creative juices flowing and brainstorming.

Jen from Just Average Jen says “I have more of a day to day plan without having to fit in the school run. Mummy friends aren’t as free for coffee so I have more time at home too!”

Jen from MyMummyesPennies says she feels more motivated “during the summer holidays I get to spend more time with my children so what I’m working so hard for is really tangible.

~

And Becky from A Beautiful Space says “Sunshine makes me happy and feels more energised and this is why I am more productive in the summer ( plus I’m not constantly driving kids to activities!)

~

 

The long Summer break makes me reflective and I find myself reassessing my goals which, you guessed it!  Makes me more productive!

Sun, moon, stars ~ essential oils

You may have read how I’ve started my sun, moon, stars journey.
Part of that journey is to use essential oils each month to compliment my monthly intention-setting, manifesting and moon work.  Last month I used Laurel essential oil by literally wafting an open bottle under my nose because I’m yet to get a diffuser!  On one occasion I did use my old oil burner and it’s an amazing scent.

 The search for the right diffuser

I used essential oil burners years ago and got out of the habit.  But then my sun, moon, stars journey began and I found the much more pet-friendly contemporary diffuser option.  I say pet-friendly because you don’t need a candle to heat the oil with the diffusers.  So nothing for the cat to knock over or the dog to swish her tail at!  This month I’m using Patchouli and my next step will be to use an essential oil diffuser, when I’ve got one!  Then to get one of those handy and cute essential oil bottle holders to keep them in!  A tidy house is a tidy mind after all.
I’m looking forward to trying one out and also to hopefully feel the benefit, alongside my work with chakras and angels.
  
Do you use essential oils?  Have you got a diffuser to recommend?  I’d love to know!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere. Thanks.

Sun, moon, stars ~ working with the moon

I’ve always been someone who follows my gut, someone who doesn’t necessarily conform to what society ‘expects’ of me but someone who knows my own mind.  Some of this has come with age and maturity (!), some has come with life experience and some of it has come from a ‘need’.
By that I mean that depression led me on my spiritual journey.

A journey to the sun, moon and stars

Reiki opened up a whole new world of understanding of how the energies around us work.  Usually in harmony with us, if we would only let it in….
So, depression led me to self-help and to self-discovery.  Ironically, I’ve got a lot to ‘thank’ depression and anxiety for!  It’s been over a decade since myself and my doctor recognised I had depression.  But the beginning of my spiritual journey didn’t start straight away.  In fact, over 10 years later, I find myself more and more drawn to astrology and the moon and their effects on us all.

Simplifying my journey 

To that end, I’m going to try to simplify my journey (thought I’m certain it’ll go quite deep at times) and share my sun, moon, stars journey.  It’s an exciting adventure that I’m looking forward to.
The first thing to share is how I’ve been using the new and full moon information sheets by astrologer and moonologer, Yasmin Boland.
This is not a collaborative or affiliated post; I just believe in sharing the good work of amazing people.  To take a step back a little further, in July 2017 I attended a new moon manifesting session hosted by Yasmin.  It was a total game-changer.  I can happily say that the moon worked its magic (with my help) and the intentions I set (or ‘wishes’ as Yasmin prefers to call them) came to fruition.  It’s definitely worth adding here that though the moon is most certainly ‘magic’, you absolutely have to put actions behind your intentions too…

New and full moon info sheets

To go back to these info sheets then, we’re now at the start of the zodiac with the new moon being in Aries and I’m about to embark on my full 12 month new and full moon journey for the first time ever.  Of course, you can start at whatever sign of the zodiac you like and this post is just as relevant when the moon is in any sign of the zodiac!  The idea of working on a full 12 months is that I’ll be working on all 12 ‘houses’ in succession and therefore all of  Yasmin’s ‘cosmic extras’ such as essential oils, chakras and angels.
There’s so much more to all ‘this’ of course and over the next 12 months much of it will be mentioned and, to some degree, explained on my blog.  However, I don’t want to risk information overload for you or me!
As I say, it’ll be an exciting and interesting journey.

To find out much, much more…

visit moonology.com which is Yasmin Boland’s site.  It’s through this site that you can also find your zodiac rising sign.
Are you as fascinated by the sun, moon and stars as me I wonder?  If you are, why not share your thoughts?  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere. Thanks.
