Recognizing and changing our patterns

Have you ever noticed the pattern of how easily we respond with “I’m ok” or “I’m good” without actually checking in? Maybe this is a result of our culture, how fast paced the world can be.

Vacation from Wellness

Why I’m not taking a vacation from my wellness

I used to be the “taking a vacation from my wellness” kind of girl. I thought that vacations were about doing what I want when I want. A break from my everyday life, responsibilities and goals.

Using Tapas to create self discipline that includes ahimsa

Tapas is my homework this week Last week diving into Santosha begged me to ask one question. What do you do when you begin to believe in yourself?

Using Santosha to be content with who I am today
