H is for Healthful

It is really difficult to keep a positive attitude when you aren’t healthy. Now, things happen for all of us where we get sick for a day here or there throughout the year. I’m not talking about that. Making healthful choices. When I’m at my healthiest and feeling great, it looks like this. Getting a […]

I need more weekend

Saturday I woke up with the headache from hell. It was so bad that it had me screaming and crying. I’ve never felt pain like this in my head before. It simmered down a bit, but after continual vomiting it came back in full affect. I yelled for my husband. It felt like someone was […]

5 examples of My Mental Load

What is a Mental Load you ask?? “Largely invisible work of remembering and noticing.” -Marie Levey-Pabst 1. Noticing household tasks that need to be done. Such as light-bulbs, batteries, garbage, snow removal, laundry, dishes, etc. 2. Taking care of finances. This includes but is not limited to paying bills, managing our bank accounts and filing […]

Dedicate: Liberate

Today was day 30 of 30.  Yes, I had all day that I could’ve completed the 36 minute practice.  As I am home all day with the children for another snow day.  Something about getting it in first thing though, really does it for me. I went to the mat just before 7am.  This was […]

Dedicate: Dedicate

I am on day 28 of my 30 day yoga journey.  Yoga makes me feel different than anything else I have ever actively participated in.  It makes me feel connected, powerful and strong.  I am sure that there are a million people out there who like some other yoga practice better, but my favorite is […]

My yoga practice today focused on power.  The power that we find within ourselves on that mat can lead to power off the mat if we allow it to. Can you imagine how great your day would be if you believed that you held the power to make it great? Whatever you believe about yourself […]

Dedicate: Joy

Today’s yoga practice was focused on Joy!!  I know that I feel more joyful through my days just because I meet at the mat every morning.  My word for 2017 was joy, the idea of choosing joy.  I still work to meet this goal every day.   Joy is a decision.  A really brave one […]

Best Life: Week 3

Holding myself accountable is something that I truly enjoy.  It really helps me to stay on task and focused.  My current accountability is here, you.  Though…I am not really sure anyone cares or would “yell” at me if I fell off the wagon.  Just the idea of disappointing is good enough reason for me to […]

Dedicate: Steady

Steady: Supported or Balanced Man…this should be someone’s word for the year.  Maybe, I will hold onto it and use it for 2020. Foundationally (this should be a word) speaking, I supposed that it isn’t much different from from Purposeful Living.  After all, that is based on balance. The idea behind today’s lesson is to […]
