30-Day Self-Care Challenge – Day 19

The benefits of trimming back…..

I received the following email today from a colleague describing precautions a popular speaker in the EveryDay Qi speaker series is taking to prepare for Hurricane Fay.  I think it’s great self-care advice.

Dr. Sears is preparing for tropical storm Fay, which could well reach Category 1 hurricane status by the time she reaches the Florida coast…

Now Dr. Sears is no stranger to the destruction these storms can bring, as he lost some 200 trees on his property over two years and three storms…

What did he do to prepare this time…?

He trimmed and pruned all of the 65 species of trees and shrubs on his property, piling up branches as high as his house…

How exactly will this help…?

By trimming back all that foliage, Dr. Sears reduced the amount of surface that could serve as a wind trap, reducing the chance for damage from high winds…

Let me ask you this…

What can YOU trim back in your life that might serve as a trap for destructive winds that could come your way?

How about trimming back on letting
negative emotions control your thinking or cutting back on the amount of unhealthy snacks you are consuming…

Pruning just one or two negative things from your life can potentially save you from a bad storm down the road…

But there’s only ONE catch…

Be sure to start trimming well
before the storm arrives at your door!
