Are you happy doing what you do every day? I’m not talking about working in your dream job. I’m wondering if you find a way to love everyday no matter what. I never know whether I should say yes or no. I have a hard time making decisions, but I’ve gotten better. All growing up I was taught to never give… View Post
My Happiness Project: Boosting Energy
It’s the first Monday in October, so I thought this was a good day to start the Happiness Project. I know you’re thinking… October? That’s a weird month to start. Why not January? Why does January have to be when everyone makes their resolutions? I want to start now, so I should follow that! If I wait, I might lose… View Post
If it wasn’t for yoga, I’d still be in bed!
It’s really amazing to see how much my yoga practice has helped me through my recovery. If you’re generally healthy like me, the differences aren’t noticeable right away. Don’t get me wrong, the changes are dramatic, but composed of small changes over a long period of time. It’s been pretty amazing to go through a surgery and really experience how… View Post
You’re Not Alone. Here’s How I Know…
Earlier this week, I felt like the world was closing in on me. I’m working on A LOT of projects, and everyone needed my attention. I don’t ask a lot, and I’m pretty giving, but the truth is – my “me” time is important. But, that’s my responsibility. I took on a million projects at once, so of course people expect me to… View Post
Are Spiritual Hypocrites a Thing?
For the last Spiritual Book Club meeting, we read Awake in the World by Michael Stone. It was my second time reading it, and it was liberating to get back in touch with his teachings. Sometimes when I’m practicing yoga, and watching yogis on social media, I feel like I’m not as spiritual as I should be. I see so many quotes… View Post
Sometimes Taking a Step Back is Actually a Step Forward
It’s been awhile since we’ve talked. It’s not you. It’s me. I’ve been on a bit of a sabbatical longer than I’ve wanted, but I can see now it’s something I needed. Have you ever just had so much on your plate that you don’t know where to start, so you just decided to not do any of it? Then,… View Post
How I Found Out I Was Anemic & Why I Broke Vegetarian.
It had been a few years since I had really gone to the doctor, had a physical, and routine blood work, but it was time. I went into the lab to do my blood test, and the very next morning I get a call from my doctor telling me I need to go to the hospital. I’ve always been a… View Post
Flexibility Starts In The Mind – Not The Other Way Around.
Sometimes I get questions about how to become more flexible. How do I open my hamstrings, so that I can touch my toes? How do get my leg behind my head? How can I deepen my backbends? First I want to say that I’ve done all of those things. Two of the most difficult postures for me are Supta Kurmasana,… View Post
How to Stop Judging & Start Loving: 3 Takeaways from Rising Strong by Brene Brown
I recently created a spiritual book club in the city where I live. I did this for a few reasons. Since I left my job, my whole world has been flipped around, and filled with extreme highs and lows. I’ve had to break down walls, own my stories, and fall a lot while building a new foundation. It’s the best… View Post
The 7 Headstands of the Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series (Plus the Learn Headstand in 10 Day Challenge!)
When 2016 rolled around, I set some intentions and traditions. One of the things I promised myself was to make sure I rewarded myself with some self-care each month. I made a list of what I was going to accomplish each month, and it looked something like this: January: Massage February: Manicure & Pedicure March: Buy new yoga clothes April: New… View Post
