Back to Nature

Happy Monday, faithful readers-of-my-blog!  I'm writing earlier in the week than usual to guard against the insanity that I know is in store.  I'm working all day at Karma Kids tomorrow and then starting on Wednesday, I'm back into the wonderful world of Thai Yoga Massage, where time - mainly free time - seems not to exist.  I'm doing well so far on my one-entry-a-week thing I've got going on, and I don't want to spoil it.  I'll also do a Monday entry next week, right before getting on a jet-plane to sunny California!  I'm super excited about that, and to celebrate I'll be doing an entry on Bolthouse Farms.  The why's and wherefore's of which you'll just have to wait for...

I got such a wonderful response from my gluten-free entry - I can't thank everyone enough for the support and encouragement!  It's been an interesting week and a half so far.  On one hand, I'm making an effort to include more fresh fruits and vegetables an…

Meditation & Sleep - A Lazy Entry

Good almost-afternoon!  You know that feeling when your alarm goes off and you can't stop yourself from moaning, "No..." in protest because you're tired all the way down to your bones?  I've felt that every single morning this week!  Aside from being annoying, it's making me nervous for the upcoming Daylight Savings Time Change - which I'm really looking forward to, aside from the challenge of adjusting to it.  It'll be so nice to get another hour of sunshine in the evenings!

Anyway, this morning I gave myself the rare indulgence of sleeping in...and I kind of wish I was still in bed!  So today's lazy bones blog is me sharing some very interesting articles from Huffington Post this morning.

This article includes some tips on how not to be miserable during the time change:  How to recoup that stolen hour

This one goes back to the touchy-feely basics of the benefits of meditation, giving modern science a rest:  The best non-scientific benefits of me…

You are what you eat. Whatever that means.

In developing this blog, I’ve often debated with myself over how personal it should be.  I didn’t want to it to veer too far from yoga into random whining or pontificating about myself and my own life.  On the other hand, I simply cannot be authentic or a halfway decent writer if I don’t let my personal life – let alone my personality – through  to a degree.  As a person, I don't think I've ever had a problem letting my guard down with people or opening up in an instant - sometimes to a fault, as too much of anything can always cause issues.  A friend once urged me to, "Stop spilling your soul to everyone!"

However, as we’ve seen every time I have a, “So I was sick this week…” post, I just can’t help myself.  Yoga (and blogging) is such an intensely personal practice.  That’s why I love it and was drawn to it and in my opinion, you just can’t be a teacher without sometimes letting your life leak into your teachings.
The original plan for this week was to do a book repo…
