April is now upon us and I have to admit that the one thing I do love about this time of the year is the rain. I know that, for some, rain seems depressing but for me I find that the consistent sound of rain drops on the ground is like this hypnotic, soothing white noise that gets my focus on. I always tend to get more productive when it’s raining out and when I’m not being all productive I find that the need to go within, to either reflect by journal writing or read a spiritual book, is incredibly strong. I use rainy days to work on ME and I always find that I come out of them happier, clearer and better able to manage the things that come my way!
Here’s wishing us a productive and soul-searching month! Enjoy this week’s health links and be excellent to each other!
