    Starting a New Journal

    The time has finally come – my first bullet journal is full. I started my journal back in April, about halfway through the month. And by the end of November, I was out of space. I didn’t jump right into a new journal, though. I took about a week to make the transition. Even now, my new one isn’t 100% set up, but it’s almost there. I love journaling and find it helpful for a multitude of reasons, which you can hear about in my How & Why I Journal…

    Wellness Gift Ideas

    I always put a lot of thought into gift giving. I love sitting back and taking the time to really think about each individual person in my life – what are they like? What’s going on in their life right now? What do they need, or what’s something they’ve really been wanting? I like to make it personal too. What is something only I would think to get them? What defines our relationship? This year, I’m less interested in materialistic gifts that “so-and-so” might not even use. I want to…

    Alcohol and the Holidays

    As I’ve been incessantly going on and on about, the holiday season is fast approaching. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and from there, it’ll be the end of the year before we know it. With this time of year comes holiday parties, celebrations, brunches, and then New Years Eve, all of which alcohol can be a big part of. Let me go ahead and say it up front – I rarely drink alcohol. If I do, it’s usually for a special occasion or on vacation, and even then it’s one and done.…

    Heat-Building Flow Yoga Class

    Temperatures are starting to drop, and it’s getting harder to get out of a toasty bed on a Sunday morning. Honestly, the thought of pancakes were the only thing to get me up and at it this morning! As we move into winter, to stay warm we have to build our own heat, ignite our internal fire. This month’s free yoga class, that is now on my channel, will help you do just that, with a heat-building flow practice. This is a slower flow, so it’s perfect for a variety of…

    Seasonal Self Care Suggestions

    The weather has been very unpredictable lately. One day it feels like Fall, the next it feels like Winter has come early, but then a couple days later it goes back to the autumnal warmth. I’ve been thinking and speaking about transition lately, and it now feels like we’re in the thick of it. What season is it? Do I need a sweater or a coat? Are my energy levels high or low? Do I feel like staying bundled up inside under a blanket or frolicking amongst the fallen leaves?…

    Lessons from the Moon: Part 2

    Days later, I am still riding high off this weekend’s Full Beaver Moon in Taurus and a full moon yoga class at Tough Love Yoga. Therefore, I am back with another Lesson from the Moon! This lesson is all about transition. I think it’s safe to say a lot, if not most, people don’t like change. We feel comfortable when we feel settled. I know I thrive on all levels – mental health, productivity, and general well being – when I have my routine down. I did have a brief moment…

    A Few Hand & Wrist Stretches

    The temperatures have been dropping, slowly but surely. Plus with a lot of good shows on Netflix (Mindhunter and Stranger Things 2 for the win!), I have found myself in full on knitting mode. Binge watching and crafting just go so well together. The only downside is that my fingers not only get tired, but they also cramp up. For some reason, my pinky fingers decide to curl in on themselves every time I knit. And after working on my latest project for 3 or more hours at a time,…

    Getting Back in the Groove

    Life happens. Unexpected situations occur. We get busy. We become stressed. And then our healthy habits and routines get thrown out the window. We have all been there. Last week was one of those for me. I was in good company with out-of-town family, but my routine was thrown upside down. I personally thrive on a routine, so when it’s out of whack, I very easily fall into bad habits. I stopped meditating. I drank more soda in a week than I have in at least the past two months. This…
