Forest Bathing: A WOW for Me: Shinrin-yoku



Yesterday I received an interesting email  from the Pinterest Blog about 'Forest Bathing'
I thought, "What the heck"!
Then I read a bit further. I'm sure glad I did.
It wasn't about necessarily bathing in the forest. lol

'Forest Bathing' = being outdoors unplugged.
The pin makes reference to 'digital detoxing searches' are +200% and 'Forest Bathing searches' are +152%.
Look at those numbers for searches.I believe lots of folks are looking to detox and relax.

Now this is a WOW for me. I've been spending a lot of time outdoors the last 2 weeks doing just this-digital detoxing, unplugging and getting away from the stress of what I do on a day to day basis. I love what I do and am very passionate as I'm growing in it yet I can get stressed like everyone else.

I've been enjoying the birds, squirrels and rabbits. Even built a bit of a sanctuary for them(and me) to enjoy.
When I can't be outdoors I have my work area set up so I 
can watch them and enjoy. 

I was a bit disappointed this morning I didn't video the hummingbird on the feeder and flowers. The picture I took didn't turn out well. 

I don't know what it's like where you are but it's nasty & ugly hot and humid here. I go out early in the mornings 
and late at night many times.
Air conditioning makes life nicer but it spoils us to not be able to deal with the elements as they are. Since I have health conditions worsened by the heat and humidity, I'm frustrated by not being able to go out as much as I'd like----yet!

I encourage you to take some time to unplug. Even if it just for 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Breathe deeply, enjoy what's around you and be amazed.
I'm looking forward to more time to unplug and detox on a daily basis.
How about you? 

I've shared below the information from the Pinterest blog if you'd like to check it out.
Until next time...Cheers
~Cindy~

Here's what Pinterest found:
"To combat the always-inside, always-plugged-in epidemic, Pinners are following the Japanese practice Shinrin-yoku, which translates to "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing" (+152%). It's the process of absorbing everything about nature--the sights, sounds, smells---to promote physiological and psychological health."

The Beauty of Hummingbirds



I love the beauty of Hummingbirds and it's no wonder I  appreciate this beautiful Hummingbird Warmer.
This is a electric 'touch' lamp for wax melts or oils.
You touch to control the light and heat intensity.
I have even more on order and think these are fab.
I'm used to warmers with a simple light bulb but these I can adjust. It's absolutely beautiful at night with the 
lights out as well. 

I will also being ordering a supply of replacement bulbs for these. I've been using mine for a month and still have same little bulb. If your in another country it may be necessary to
purchase an adapter for your outlet. (Something I recently learned of and will find out correct terminolgy as well)


I'm sharing a video below I'd shared on facebook about gathering rose buds for soaps but I also included part of the clip on the Hummingbird Warmer.


Thanks for reading/watching, do order yours today & don't neglect signing up for updates below the video.
Cheers

Remembering the Fallen and Loved Ones



Good Evening

How was your day? Is Memorial Day significant to you?
Did you honor those who lost their lives in service to our country? 

I realized not only do many honor the fallen but this is a day and weekend to remember loved one's who have passed away as well. I apologize and no offense intended.
Some have a BBQ, maybe a keg of beer and a hot dog of a time with friends & family as well as put flowers or crosses on graves of those who have been lost to war, service to our country and put flowers on graves of loved ones and friends, regardless of their service to our country.
Today for many is significant to remember our loved ones.

I realize there are some of you who live in the US and some who don't and your not into Memorial Day.
No problem! How was your day?

A few facts about Memorial Day thanks to my friend, Sybil Jones!

Morning, Coffee and Hummingbirds



Good Morning!

It's a cool and rainy Wednesday. I'm enjoying it rather than despising it. 
I was sipping my coffee and sitting watching the birds at the feeder, squirrels & rabbits nibbling at the seed on the ground.
I was concerned the hummingbirds wouldn't find the first feeder I put up but lo and behold two were at the feeder!
I wasn't fast enough to get their picture but hope next time I'll be ready.

Earlier this month I found this post below from 'Save Our Hummingbirds' and want to share.
I've learned a lot hummingbirds & about not adding color to their nectar. Here's a simple recipe to make your own.
Hope you find it helpful.

I'm curious what interests you most to know about in regard to natural disasters:

2. What to do in regard to certain calamities your area is prone to
3.Something I haven't mentioned

Welcome Warmth in May


Good afternoon.
I'm glad to keep warm when it's so cotton picking cold. 
It's May, wet and too darn cold to my liking.

I'm going to snuggle up and take a nap under my quilt.

No worries I'll be back in awhile.
