Social Media Detox

Scrolling, scrolling, losing track of time. What is everyone up to? Where are the cute dogs? Maybe I will find some yoga inspiration. Down time, pick up my phone and find the social media. Mainly Facebook and Instagram. I find myself sitting in the same place after twenty minutes, maybe even an hour. Where hasContinue reading “Social Media Detox”

What Do You Love About Yourself?

Last week, I had a lovely mid week get away, with fully vaccinated friends. We talked, we laughed, we walked, we did yoga, I twisted my ankle, we ate lots of food and enjoyed each other’s company in a super beautiful and relaxing setting. When you are able to hang out uninterrupted with your bestContinue reading “What Do You Love About Yourself?”

Take A Moment…

There is a lot of talk about mindfulness and meditation these days. An opportunity to connect and recenter.

I was stressed, anxious and on edge about the virus, my family’s health, aboutContinue reading “Trust Yourself”

For All That We Love

We love them from the moment they come into the world. We love them until they take their last breath. We love them through struggle and conflict. We love them when it hurts. We give them all our love and ask for nothing in return. The love that we have for ourselves is often overlooked,Continue reading “For All That We Love”

Challenging Days

I had different post ready for today, but in light of the news this week, it didn’t seem appropriate to ignore what is going on in our country right now.  I wanted to share how I am feeling. I am struggling, as I imagine so many others are too. How is this the country weContinue reading “Challenging Days”
