I wanted to check in on you and see how you're doing. These are such strange times and to be honest, it's been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. Some days are peaceful and easy and then, wham, life feels like someone switched on the emotional blender. How about you?
I hear from so many of you at the shop and a common thread emerges in our chat. You are taking the time to take care of yourself in simple ways that, over the weeks, has contributed to your emotional and physical well-being. You are a healthy bunch of folks! I, of course, attribute that to the fact that you turn to herbs, healthy foods, and supportive plant healers to fortify your immune system and to give you vitality and energy to face trying times.
Here's the other thing that I'm seeing. My local customers are getting outside. They are hiking, biking, playing in the garden, or even just walking their furry friends more often. And the healing beauty of the sunshine and fresh air is doing its work. When frustrations rise and anger and helplessness seep in, you are choosing to take it outside for a good airing out. I love this!
One dear customer came to the shop with something I think we all wrestle with from time to time...she was feeling low and sapped of energy. I recommended sunshine and our Reishi Vitality formula. I just heard back from her....
"I am so thankful for the Reishi Vitality Formula! On the third day of taking it, my energy level really increased and I felt a renewed vitality. I had been feeling flat and lacked motivation and now my energy is restored! I look forward to taking this formula everyday and the way it makes me feel.
I'm so glad to hear this. It's a personal favorite and I love taking it in the morning before heading out into the garden with a cup of tea and Zephyr (my big black dog). And speaking of my garden, next week I'll share some fun garden tips and tricks. It's one of the things that is making me happy these days!
