You may be familiar with that feeling of walking into your favorite yoga studio and immediately being met with a sense of calm and ease. The smell, the lighting, the sounds, the overall energy of the space does something to you. 

What helps a space feel inviting and safe? How can we recreate this at home? Producing a more peaceful environment, that you want to in leads to more self care. Self care comes through in our relationships, we become better friends, lovers, parents, and human beings. Studies show when we feel at ease in our environment, when we can fully relax our nervous system responds to that in a positive way.

Starting your morning with loving intention is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself. It helps to ground and center yourself before taking on all the things life has to throw at you.

You only need 30 minutes for the following, I guarantee it will have a powerful impact on your entire day. Give it a try! 



STEP ONE - MAKE A COZY DRINK - (5 MINUTES)

Make your favorite cup of tea/coffee/hot water with lemon and find the coziest corner of your home to write. Find and create a space that feels special to you. 



STEP TWO - 10 MINUTES OF WRITING

After the five minutes, pause to check in with yourself and see if there is anything you need in this moment. Write it down. My teacher taught me a trick called “PIES”. You check in with your Physi...
