Dear Friend,

My phone is changing my life. Sounds silly, so let me explain. I was the last person to get a smartphone (or at least it felt like it), so I had a lot of time to think about how I needed it to be more than just a phone. I needed it to change my life to justify the cost. And it hasn't disappointed me yet!

First, I downloaded a meditation app. And now I have regular meditation practice.

Then I set an alert to remind me to practice yoga every day and now I have a regular home practice.

With my timer I learned how to stop avoiding dreaded tasks because they really don't take that long.

Now I'm using this app to help me build healthy habits. It's free and it is super easy to program. I simply took all the items from my wellness prescription, decided the frequency I wanted to do them (I started slowly in order to get discouraged) and now I check in several times a day to see what other things I could be doing to take remarkably good care of myself. Basically I am giving myself gold stars and high fives with an electronic chart and BOOM! Healthy Habits on the daily.

While I don't believe in New Year's resolutions, I do believe in creating better health habits all year long.

How about you? Does technology help improve your health habits or do we need to stage a Facebook intervention?

I hope you are well.

With lots of love and compassion,

Restoration Not Resolutions 2015 - click here to register

Wouldn't it be lovely to start the new year with some serious self-care, relaxation and intention setting? Let's spend the day together relaxing, rejuvenating and not even thinking about New Year's resolutions.

In this 3.5 hour restorative yoga workshop we will first lounge and get good and relaxed. Then we'll spend some time time exploring questions which will lead to choosing a word or touchstone for the new year.

You will need to bring:
- Favorite comfortable stretchy outfit including cozy socks.
- Any yoga props you have: a mat, blankets, bolsters, eye pillows etc.
- Somewhere to write your ideas on how you want to feel in the new year.
- Your favorite writing tool - a pen, mechanical pencil, sharpie, water colors...

We'll provide:
- A relaxing and refreshing restorative yoga sequence.
- Tea and homemade dairy free cookies.
- Writing exercises to inspire intention setting for 2015.

I am looking to work with people ready for something different. People who want to feel do a little bit of yoga every day instead of a lot of yoga once in a while. People who are willing to try new ways to get new results - like feeling good at the end of their work day and letting go of anxiety and depression. 

Send me a message if that is something you'd like to do and feel in 2015. I work with people locally and via Skype, so let's see if we are a good fit for each other.
