Pause & Celebrate the Small Wins Too!

Today I got a certificate in the mail to mark the completion of one of my yoga therapy trainings.  Usually I would just acknowledge it and move right on to the next thing on my to-do list.  I don't celebrate as much as I could.  Right now, I'm recognizing that I tend...

It’s Time to Declutter

I've always liked to do a deep clean and get rid of the things that I no longer use or need.  It sounds a bit odd I know, but when I take the time to declutter, I feel as if a weight has been taken off of my back.  Maybe it's because summer is winding down & the...

How often do you use the word ‘should’?

Recently, I've had multiple conversations where people are saying that they should do this or they should do that.  In that same conversation, they'll talk about feeling stressed because they feel they have to do something even if it's not something that they like or...

It All Gets to Be Here

I was feeling a little irritable this morning.  The root of this irritability was that I felt tired & needed to rest after a long day yesterday.  I didn't think that I really had time to rest all day, so I took it slow and did a few things instead of all of the things...

Feeling Overwhelmed

My life has a way of filling up.  From about mid-May until now, I've felt a bit like I'm treading water and just trying to keep up with the current.  No matter how much I do, there seems to be way more left undone.  I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that...

Noticing My Stop & Go Life

Last weekend I was hiking with my dog, Max.  Now, Max is a small dog and he weighs only around 11 pounds.  Because he's so small, I didn't think he'd like these long walks, but he loves to go out on the trails with me.  This time, he couldn't decide how fast he was...

Life Transitions…Big & Small

It seems to me that life is a series of transitions.  Some are big like your child graduating high school and then leaving for college.  Some are much smaller like when you've been on vacation and you have to transition back into your worker mindset.  Is one easier...

Listen to Your Own Intuition Again

When was the last time that you listened to your intuition?  I mean really listened to it?  It talks with you all of the time, but most of us aren't in the habit of paying any attention to it.  We're so busy reacting to the outside world, that we often miss those...
