Happy New Year
I am just back from 3 weeks in Mexico feeling refreshed and ready to embark on the New Year. I admit to being a sun-aholic. I love hanging out on the beach, playing in the water and living practically full-time out of doors and being warm the entire time.
I believe it is incredibly important to determine what nourishes you spiritually and physically and to make a commitment to setting aside time to recharge yourself. Vacationing is certainly one way to do that, but we don’t always have the time or the resources to wander off to the retreat of our choosing. But we can set aside time each week, and even each day to nourish our bodies and spirit.
Take some time to figure out what makes you feel good. When do you find yourself smiling, both inside and out? When do you experience a sense of contentment and well-being? What gives you joy? Make a list, put it some place you can return to easily. And then you have your own handy pick-me-up protocol. Here are some of the things I do regularly that keep me happy, grounded and smiling.
- Daily yoga & meditation
- Walks in the woods and along the beach
- Listening to music and having my own private dance party
- Sipping tea, wrapped in a warm blanket and reading a book
- Hanging out with my friends – perhaps with a glass of wine in hand
- Spending time with my husband and kids
- Cooking and gardening
- Teaching and studying yoga
Okay, so there you have it, you know my list of nourishments. I wonder what you will put on your list.
Good News – I am starting a new Tuesday Evening Slow Flow yoga class in West Seattle at Limber Yoga on February 5th at 4:30pm.
Come Check it out. I am super excited to finally be teaching in West Seattle, and Limber Yoga has a great open light filled space, fully equipped with all my favorite props.
Happy New Year, may it be a year of joy and blessing and good health for you and all those you hold dear.
Shalom & Namaste
