Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and even when we are doing our best to live a more mindful life, time can still seem to fly right on by, yes?
During this busy time of year, it becomes even more important to make sure we are taking care of ourselves. Becoming too busy and stressed can lead to a lack of sleep, and illness. While it seems counter-intuitive to some of us (calling all Type-A personalities!), slowing down when we’re the busiest may just be the best thing.
Part of living a slower and more mindful life is making sure we are paying attention to the food we eat. For many, this means more fresh fruits and vegetables and less packaged and processed foods. It means preparing foods at home rather than hitting the drive-thru.
Amazing Planning Power – our Monthly Planners pack a lot of power. They cover September 2017 – January 2020. 32 pages of pure planning power. Each page spread features one month, daily spaces are generous, and there’s a bit of room for notes. Sweet mini grids for the next and previous months are also included.
Easy to Carry! They measure 5″ x 7″, feature just 32 pages. Perfectly-sized for any bag.
The covers are made from smooth, matte-finish, thick paper. While not waterproof, you can definitely get a few drops of water (ok, coffee) on these and not worry about it – just wipe it off and keep going.
Price! At just under $10, Brush Dance Monthly Planners are perfectly priced. Talk about value for your money – for $10, you can be organized through 2019.
Here’s a closer look at the planner (no audio = safe at work!). If you can’t see the video below, click here.
Life is Beautiful is the one I have in my bag right now, but if that’s not your cup of tea (pun intended!), we have five other covers – definitely something for everyone.
Finally, I can’t let today pass without acknowledging the importance of this day in American history. I am grateful for the first responders of NY and beyond, sad for all of the senseless loss, and hopeful for the future.
Our Mindful Eating calendar for 2018 is one of my favorite new titles.
With thoughtful and inspiring quotes combined with beautiful food photography, this 12″ x 12″ Wall Calendar is perfect for any kitchen.
In a very non-pushy way, this calendar reminds us that it’s important for us to pay attention to how we are feeding our bodies. A very wise woman once told me that we have to pay attention to how we are eating in order to make changes. Being more mindful about food has definitely helped me make better choices for myself (most days, anyway.)
We’ve made a video that shows each of the inside pages just a bit bigger. If you can’t see the video below, click here.
It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is this week – and yet here it comes – the kick-off to the busiest time of the year for many of us.
Let’s take a big deep breath and remember to give thanks.
Let’s live a more mindful life – paying attention to the small details that make our lives so special.
Let’s remember to have a crazy good time with friends and family. And let’s remember to take a little time for ourselves, too.
Like most other retailers, Brush Dance is having some pretty incredible sales going through the holiday season. We are grateful that you spend some of your hard-earned money supporting our small business.
The end of summer is in sight. Most of us have taken our summer vacations and the kids are returning to school. It’s around this time of year that our focus turns to home and taking care of ourselves and our family.
