As we slide into August, despite the hot weather, many of us experience a flurry of activities: back to school shopping, that last vacation trip before schools starts or that big project you’ve been putting off but can put off no longer. Out here at The Cabin, we are trying to keep cool. Outside tasks like mowing the field or even walking the dogs are done early in the morning or in the evening before dark. Inside tasks, mainly working on the magazine fill most of the rest of our time. Our children are grown and have long since left the nest. I no longer teach school so the rhythm of the school year has been replaced by the monthly rhythm of publishing a magazine. We are hoping to break away for a short camping trip in October when the weather has turned cooler.
For those of you who do have children who are still at home, this month’s issue features a great article on 21st Century Parenting. Also, be sure to check out our new Sustainability Section and our growing Plant Medicine Section. When you shop at one of our advertisers, be sure to use your promo code, coupon or just mention you saw them in Natural Awakenings.
This month will also see the unveiling of our new and improved website. One of the new features is the new Community Directory. We have three levels of listings and the starter level is FREE. So if you own a healthy living or sustainability business, we invite you to visit the website and get your business listed on one of Houston’s top ranked sites.
As you are going about your day, getting ready for school or preparing for a last trip before school starts, be sure to take a few moments just for yourself, to meditate or just to breathe deeply. Now go forth and be awesome!
