So what’s a modern, health-conscious person to do?! Take baby steps and see what works for you, is my answer.
I’m trying on new habits to see how they fit, and you’re welcome to try them out too. Every two weeks, I’ll try another. If I like it, I’ll keep it. If I don’t, I probably won’t, but that’s how I’ll know. That’s how I’ll begin living with more healthy, happy, whole life habits.
Why every two weeks? We’ll change habits on the New and Full Moons, as energy builds and recedes. And, lore says that it takes 2 weeks to adopt a habit. The timing is perfect!
We know that the Full Moon is a time of heightened energy- talk to anyone who works in an Emergency Room, or anyone affected by high tides, to see how their lives are impacted by a Full Moon!
What we don’t always pay attention to is the opposite effect- at the New Moon, energies are lower, quieter, as they have ebbed away since the Full Moon.
At the Full Moon, I’ll pick a habit that has to do with releasing, clearing, cleaning or reducing, as the energies recede. At the New Moon, I’ll change to one that builds, strengthens, supports, or increases, and keep it up until the height of energy, at the Full Moon.
Read along with me as I experiment my way through as many potential new habits as I can manage!
