The Month of April
The Energy of April
The month of April holds the energy of Inspiration. This is the month to find ways to be inspired and motivated in your life. What motivates you? What inspires you? Take time this month to find inspiration and move forward.
As we move into the energies of Inspirations, you are being asked to find motivation and to move energies forward in your life. Take time to ask yourself these questions:
- Who is an inspiration in your life?
- Who do you admire? Why?
- What gets you motivated?
- Where have you been stalling or what have you been putting off?
- What do you need to do to start jump start your life?
Spring is in the air. You have been indoors and refueling your tanks. It is time to get out and get moving. Here are some ideas to consider:
- Find a way to get outside: go for hike, take a walk, jog around the lake, take your bike for a ride, etc.
- Spend some time in nature: take a drive up to the mountains, hug a tree, check out the zoo, etc.
- Set a date to do some tasks that you have been putting off: clean out the garage, set up the patio, clean out the car, organize your storage area, etc.
