Even as the days go short make sure to embrace the sunshine when you can – it can make your heart sing and vitamin D is good for your health.
Sometimes it is ok to indulge and enjoy some cake or a special meal. However, you should always try to eat some vegetables everyday.
Imagine if all the time we spent worrying about what we looked like or what others thought about us was spent thinking about how to make the world better or to solve some of the challenges we face. So many possibilities. I like to look good as much as anyone but sometimes your energy is better focused on bigger things. Plus most likely all that worry is for nothing and you look lovely already.
You are taller than you think, a kind and wise person once said to me. Not that there is anything wrong with being short of course, but whenever I need a confidence boost I remind myself of those words. Take a deep breath and stand tall – it’s good for your psyche and your spine.

Never let your life be defined by numbers. You and your life are so much more than any arbitrary measurements we falsely subscribe to success.
Last weekend’s harvest moon has really got me thinking about nourishment. As the seasons change, sometimes so do our priorities. The back to school vibe of September is a great time to check in and figure out what best fills you up – nutritionally, emotionally, even spiritually.
Sometimes you find yourself in a hard spot, and there really isn’t much you can do except for make the best of it. Everyday there is something to keep you going, even if its as simple as the sunrise or a delicious bowl of soup.
If you find yourself overwhelmed, take a moment to check in, relax, and just breathe. Find a comfortable seat, close your eyes and listen to your breathe and let the moment pass. Summer can be lovely, but it can also be super busy, so make sure to look after yourself amidst the holiday adventures.
