    It is Time to Trust

    I've been walking this path for a long time now. I've been trusting (and not trusting) myself for a long time now. It's funny looking back over the years. I wanted to become a yoga teacher, so I did. I wanted to solely teach yoga, so I did. I wanted to write a book, so I did. I wanted to stop writing that book and change direction, so I did. I wanted to stop teaching yoga and focus solely on writing, so I did. I have manifested many things into my life, almost effortlessly, it seems, though I know that's not entirely true. I've worked hard. I've had setbacks, and I'm still here, more committed than ever to my path.

    Conscious Writing

    I've been a technical writer, content strategist and copywriter for the bulk of my professional career. It's not what I planned; it just happened. But as I look back at my college days I see the seeds. Getting older offers the gift of clear-er seeing. When I began teaching yoga over a decade ago, I felt a distinct pull to do more personal writing -- for myself and others. That practice has been a mainstay ever since. I'm calmer and more focused in the process. I understand myself in a deeper way. I see how my thoughts work (for and against me). Personal writing -- conscious writing -- makes me more me. For about the last five years I've wanted to author a book, not because it's what I want to do professionally (I like my job), but because it's a bucket list item I want to check off. I want to call myself an author. Is that dumb? Maybe, but it's the truth. And I've discovered that reason is not good enough. I actually wrote a book during my yoga teaching years but never published it. I've been trying to get it over the finish line for the last year but it's not in…

    The Power of a Morning Ritual

    Ever reach the end of the day and wonder where it went? Do you feel exhausted by lunchtime? Or feel like all you do is run around catering for others when you get home from work? Family, school, work and extracurricular activities fall top of the priority for most of us. But what about you? Shouldn’t YOU be at the top of YOUR list too? How are you meeting your self-care needs?  “I don’t have time,” or “I guess I never really thought about it,” are the top answers I hear the most with my students and clients. My immediate response? “If you aren’t taking care of yourself, how well you are really taking care of everyone else?” Constantly going, working from a never-ending to do list without any rest is taxing on the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Our bodies are beautifully designed to achieve balance and the ANS is a fine example of it. On one side is the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) which elicits a ‘rest and digest’ response, and the opposite is the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), aka the “fight or flight” response that automatically kicks in during an emergency or a crisis. Unfortunately, in our Western culture, many of us constantly…
