Move: Morning Stretches

Say “Good Morning” to your body and mind in a healthy way, every single day! However… these stretches can be done ANY time of day, when you have the ability to lie down on a bed, or a mat, or the floor! Before you begin your day, before a walk, or before bed ~ to take all the kinks out of your body and mind.

New Years RE-Solutions

Forget a New Years resolution! How about RE-solutions? That is… taking who we are; how we are in our daily lives and discover new solutions for self- improvement.

Taking care of yourself with practical, mindful, meaningful and SIMPLE day in and day out practices that relieve stress and spread joy! This approach to self-care will emanate at levels that will astound you for the new year ~ and forever!

Here are 2 tips Carol learned on CBS SUNDAY NEWS to embrace as we RE-solve with intentions for self-improvement. Create beauty and joy from our flaws…

KINTSUGI ~ Japanese for ‘Golden Joinery’
As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of the object, rather than something to disguise.

PENTIMENTO ~ Italian for ‘repent’ with a positive twist. Shed light on our flaws as we repair them.

RE-solve; Repair; REJOICE!
