New Meditation App Totally gonna try this one out tonight. If you have never meditated it really is easy and completely refreshing. I started out by just sitting still with no phone, no TV, no music, no nothing...just me and my breath. Started out setting a timer for 5 minutes...worked my way up to 15 or so. Totally helped me throughout my pregnancy :) It may seem difficult at first, but don't be too hard on yourself... the benefits are amazing and there really is NO RIGHT WAY. I kind of fell out of practice once Parker was born....I resorted to doing most of my meditating in bed and fell asleep :) Trying to get back at it and this app just may help... a daily dose of meditation can only do me and family good :)
Yogamazing = one of my fave at home yoga practices Plain and simple, I NEED yoga in my life. Thanks to Brian Granader and all of the people at Red Lotus Yoga (Rochester Hills, Mi), I have learned so much about myself, who I want to be, and how I can become that person...all through yoga. Unfortunately Red Lotus Yoga Studio is about 30 minutes from my house so I have hard time getting out there these days because of my little sweet pea Parker. However, I think of the people and use what I have learned from them daily. Plus I get to keep in touch and follow them all on facebook :) So to keep yoga in my life I frequently do at-home practices with Chaz on YOGAMAZING. Chaz is also amazing and has a great app for the i-Pad that I use. He also has some wonderful DVDs which my hubby got me for my birthday last year. Here is his website with lots of other great info.
I bought Simple Abundance back in 1999 right after I graduated from MSU. My college years weren't so easy for me... had no clue what I wanted to study or pursue as a career, lacked self-confidence, and was a very unhappy & anxious gal. This book was one of the first tools I bought to help redirect my thoughts and attitude. I leave it on my night stand and read a few days worth from time to time. Always brings a smile to my face and reminds me just how blessed I am. Sarah Ban Breathnach has an entire series of these books. Check her website out here.
My random posts on this blog help me grow, stay connected, and network.
It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for teh sun. All I can do is reach for it myself. ~Joyce Maynard
