Friday Digs

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m inclined to say it’s been a long week. I am looking forward to a weekend of family visiting and relaxation.

It’s Friday Digs.

Mindful Eating Practice

An old teacher of mine taught me this mindful eating exercise—I try to incorporate it into meal time 2-3 times per week. Every time I do it I feel strongly nurtured and fulfilled from my meal.

Monday Mantra: The Push

Our culture for many years was one that valued the push, the drive, the over extension of our days in order to achieve success. And make no mistake, our culture still values those things. Though recently, another message has been taking the airwaves—the message to slow down, to enjoy the moment, to be easy on ourselves.

I am all about slowing down and enjoying the present, but this week’s mantra is going back to the push. But, the push with awareness. The push that so many of us crave. It’s the internal push that encourages us not only to listen to our inner voice, but to act on it.

Friday Digs

A busy week calls for a busy weekend filled with fall goodies, hiking, and some downtime to celebrate the official change of season!

It’s Friday Digs.

Your Inner Compass

Creative living – when we make choices based on our inner compass as opposed to from a set of rules of life we were taught as kids. I’ve gotten pretty good at following my inner compass but one of the hardest struggles I find in choosing to live creatively is justifying my decisions to others.

Friday Digs

It’s the weekend and I find myself looking back to the days that I worked nights and weekends and got mad at all of the people who celebrated Friday. Wherever you are in your schedule, I wish you a happy day. But first, it’s Friday Digs!

Move Past Lack Mentality

Creative Living – to move beyond what you feel you “should” do according to outside pressure to live in a way that truly feels right.

Lack mentality – when you are hyper-focused on what you have lost in the past or what you are going to get in the future.
