Begin again

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style.” ~ Maya Angelou

Tomorrow the first day of Spring arrives, and it reminds me of a seasonal ritual – spring cleaning:)

Over the years I have realized spring cleaning rituals are essential for creating ease, balance and harmony in life.

Here are 3 ways that help us loosen up as we lighten up.

1 – Clear your space. Time to let go of any accumulated clutter. We do this to free up space and make room for fresh new energy to come into our lives.

2 – Breathe deeply. Breathing slowly and deeply in seated or moving meditation practice oxygenates the blood, cleanses the lungs of old stagnant air and sets a peaceful tone for the day.

3 – Move your body. Be creative. I stretch while waiting for tea water to heat, practice Qigong between cups of chai, and keep a 2 lb. weight in the kitchen for arm exercises while my smoothie whirs. Dance!

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~ Gandhi

Excited to lead our first Saturday Workshop tomorrow that targets arthritis and joint pain relief. Less pain and more ease please:)

All righty that’s it for now…Happy Equinox, Happy Spring and wishing you a beautiful weekend.

Spring blessings
