What Will You Do To FEEL The Way YOU Want


I love writing lists.

So New Year’s Eve is usually an excuse for me to write another list!

But this year is different.¬†Starting with the fact that I could drink a glass of champagne last night! Woo hoo! It was almost like we were celebrating the end of my breastfeeding journey with my 28 month old girl rather than NYE. That’s a whole other story for another time…

So instead of writing a list of goals yesterday, I sent my hubby with my toddler to buy the champagne (she got her own special ‘bubble water’) and I got out my brand new “Desire Map Planner” by Danielle Laporte.

I cranked up “Brave” by Sara Bareilles and started listing how I wanted to FEEL this year. And what I needed to do to feel this way. It feels so good to approach my life this way! Thank you Danielle ūüėČ

Because no matter what your goals or intentions are for 2016, the reality is, we are chasing a feeling that we associate with our goals/achievements/bucket lists.

One of my core feelings is VIBRANT. And for today I had written down that I wanted to go for a walk and play outside with my husband and toddler to FEEL vibrant. It’s in the baby steps. The micro changes. That bigger things happen.

Let me know how you want to feel this year! And what you are going to do to feel this way.




Yoga & Deep Relaxation Retreat

I can’t think of a better way to start a new year. A whole weekend of Five Element Yoga and deep, restorative relaxation with Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra!¬†When I did my Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra training with Jennifer I was in my first trimester. I was amazed at how the morning sickness disappeared while I was doing her relaxation practices. BRILLIANT! I’ve been a convert ever since. So if you are wondering about how to kickstart your new year…think about how you want to feel. If you want to start the new year feeling calm and centred, go check out this retreat.

If I could leave my toddler with a babysitter that could breastfeed her and fly overseas I would! But that ain’t going to happen. So I’m going to continue with my daily dose of yoga nidra from the ‘comfort’ of my kitchen floor (yes, you can do it anywhere). Try this 10 minute meditation based on my Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra training. It’s 100% free.
