Running and The Holidays

Oh boy. Keeping to an exercise schedule during the holidays is rough. Running can be even harder if we're doing it outside. Everything gets so busy, we don't eat exactly what we should be eating, and it's cold and dark. Bottom line: running during the holidays is hard. But what else is new? If you've come… Continue reading Running and The Holidays

Rearrange Your Knick Knacks

We love our knick knacks. That is why we have them after all. We have collected them, been gifted them and because of that, we see them and see the memories they hold. We see the trips we've been on. We've seen the memory of a loved one who has passed. We see firsts and… Continue reading Rearrange Your Knick Knacks

Do It For Fun

Not everything has to be for profit or gain, does it? Are we Ferengi all of a sudden? We can do things just for fun. But do we? No, not really. In our lives, it's very easy to allow a sense of obligation to domineer our activities. We easily allow our focus to shift from enjoying something… Continue reading Do It For Fun

Summer Yoga

Summer is still here! When we think about summer we think about sun, joy, relaxation, and the heat. When designing and thinking about this flow, I wondered how I could put all of those together to embody the feeling of summer. Today's yoga is a special flow centered on heat. First off, if you are eager… Continue reading Summer Yoga

Discouragement

This is a rambling post. But rambling can be good, right? Let's jump right in. No one...and I mean no one can escape discouragement. Whether it's the occasional setback or the constant drone of a buzzing bad hand that gets you down, discouragement will find you. And it'll find you whenever it wants. It's not fun. It's… Continue reading Discouragement

Be Good To Yourself

These happy little plants, watered and fed, sitting in the warm sun are just that....happy. They've got everything they need. Their roots are stabilizing them as they reach their arms to the sky. Or just as they grow and multiply. It's simple for them, isn't it? Sucking water up their stems, turning sunlight into energy, it's easy… Continue reading Be Good To Yourself

When Life Deals You A Bad Hand

Well, first of all, deal with it. Boy does that sound awful. But really, the first thing you have to do is deal with it. Dealing with it means a couple things and it's easier when you know what those things are. Otherwise, you won't know you're doing them. You won't know they're holding you… Continue reading When Life Deals You A Bad Hand

Space and Kindness

Welcome back! Or should you be saying that to me? Let's talk. How long can a hiatus from something go on for before it becomes neglectful? How many months, years, or decades can one spend away from something before it's considered abandonment? Sounds like pretty complicated stuff BUT (luckily for us), the answer is in the intention.… Continue reading Space and Kindness

Clean The Mind

Our minds are too cluttered. Worries, buzzing bees, anger, despair, guilt, resentment, and every other negative emotion we have acquired over the years gather in the corners of our minds and slowly grow until they cloud our dreams, our ambitions, our love, our happiness, and our sanity. And we don't declutter them. We don't clean… Continue reading Clean The Mind

Stop Working

Best headline you've ever read, right? "Stop Working?! Oh BOY! Just what I wanted to hear today." Might not be quite as great as you think. But hey, you decide that, not me. We're overworked. Plain and simple. This isn't news, this isn't a lone opinion, this is truth founded in experience and studies. The modern… Continue reading Stop Working
