Spring Clean Giveaway

April is the month we generally start throwing open the windows and doors and doing some good Spring cleaning.  And while our houses air out that stale Winter energy, it's always a good idea to check in with our bodies and see how they are feeling.

I know that for me, I've had to put my foot down when it became sadly apparent that I may be the new face of scurvy.  I've gone days without fruit, and only include a few sad little veggies in my diet.  I can usually be heard saying something like "are garlic-stuffed olives a vegetable?" Or, "I think having Gouda, Havarti and Sharp Cheddar on my plate should count as three food groups."

No.  It's time to Spring clean the body, mind and spirit too.  Add some Spring greens to your next meal.  Get outside and start walking.  Take back up the meditation practice you put aside.  Remember to breathe deep.

I've picked out a couple items to give you a good start.  The first is Dr. Andrew Weil's "Mind Body Tool Kit."  The second is Cheryl Richarson's "Self-Care Cards."  Each of these items will come with a few goodies to help you shake the cabin fever and get your mind, body and spirit moving this Spring.


As always, all you have to do is be or become a follower (or let me know you subscribe to the RSS feed) and make sure you have a way I can contact you if you win.  Leave a comment, and poof!  You are entered to win one of these two gifts!

I will draw the winners names on Thursday April 14th.

Good luck, and happy Spring Cleaning!

I'm a follower who is extremely intrigued about the self-care cards. Even the cover looks relaxing.

I also get the cleaning up and passing it forward. I do it too. As a matter of fact, I might have some earrings I'll throw as a Witches in Fiction giveaway. They are very pretty (a present from a friend) but I've never wore them; they feel too big for me.

P.S. I've tried to copy the html for your button to added to my main sidebar, but your blog's image theft protection is not allowing me ;-(

Oh, gosh, how I can identify. I dislike fruit and eat only one small serving of veggies with my dinner, and it's really starting to take its toll. I'm more than 60 pounds overweight now. This week I've promised to start trying to get a little healthier. Great contest.

Hi Rue,

I definitely have to think of spring cleaning soon. In any case, it just feels wonderful to be able to open the windows and doors widely open once again without starting to freeze. Hah!

It's a good idea to clean one's spirit, too. You are such a sweetheart to offer fantastic prizes to do just that. Thanks for the chance.

Hugs,
Birgit

I don't feel that I should enter for your give away, since I've been gone so much, but I wanted to comment on how wonderful it is, and how generous you are to share it with others! I'm sure that they will go to good homes where they are greatly appreciated!

And yes! On with cleaning out, and bringing in some fresh, new positive energies!
