    Winter Blues: What You Can Do To Feel Better

    'Tis the season. Literally. The fun and joyous, yet hectic and stressful, holidays are over and winter is really settling in for good. Daylight is in short supply, and blustery weather may make it difficult for you to get out and enjoy some quality outdoor time. Many people get the winter blues each season and find it difficult to combat the feeling of depression that often accompanies.

    So what can you do to relieve your winter blues?

    See the Light

    A lot of what is happening to your body and your mood has to do with the lack of daylight outside. It's dark when you leave for work, it's dark when you come home. That can disrupt your body's circadian rhythms and cause a drop in serotonin and vitamin D levels, which can lead to depressive

  3. Quick Stress Relievers Everyone Can Use

    Quick Stress Relievers Everyone Can Use

    Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. That demand or threat once upon a time was things like lions, tigers, or bears. Now, our stresses are slightly more tame: a looming deadline, a botched sales call, or a tricky office relationship.

    When you sense danger - whether real or imagined - the body kicks its defense mechanism into gear with the fight or flight response in an effort to save your life. Your body either wants to flee from the dangerous beast that's trying to eat you (or your lunch that's in the office fridge), or stand its ground and fight.

  4. 10 Ways to Glow From The Inside Out

    When you’re being kind, considerate, compassionate and giving of yourself, your soul will rejoice. You’ve reached the highest level of self-love in this state of serving others. And even though it is good karma to be kind to others, sometimes we forget to include ourselves in the mix. Being kind to yourself is NOT selfish – in fact, it’s entirely selfless because when you feel good, you are more inclined to help others feel good as well. When I’m teaching yoga, I often reflect on this quote from Buddha: If your practice of compassion doesn’t include yourself, then it is incomplete. Find ways to do small and large things to appreciate those kind and generous souls that not only add abundance to their lives but your life as well. By practicing conscious acts of kindness and giving, you can spread the love while also adding positivity to your life. Over time, you’ll realize that the only person who is responsible for your happiness and positive outlook on life is YOU. Sure, people can AD

    butterfly-picture

    I think it's safe to say that we all have a love/hate relationship with change. If things stay too stagnant for too long, we get terribly bored and start to feel monotonous. When too many things change all at once, we find ourselves desperately seeking comfort in what we are familiar with.

    Whether we like it or not, change is a part of life. More specifically change is something that we all need to learn to embrace in order to grow whether we're referring to our personal lives or our professional lives.

    As a yoga instructor, change is a subject that I talk about frequently with my students. In fact, a lot of my students come to my class with the sole purpose of learning how to embrace change. As I mentioned earlier, change can be downright scary because it forces us out of our
