Happy woman!
Happy week to you, amazing people.

That’s a good way to start this week’s note, actually, because the topic is happiness.

Specifically, what can we all do to be happier every single day?

No, I mean, really. Truly. Practically.

Creating more happiness, well-being and a better quality of life aren’t new concepts to you, of course (otherwise, you probably wouldn’t be reading this) and these popular themes aren’t just the primary goals of my Core Care and Business Care curricula for busy women who crave more meaningful lives… these ideas are discussed in many programs around the world.

So why aren’t we all as happy as we want to be? How do we get there? (more…)

Our Cat, Doing Nothing

Our cat, Addison, is the queen of doing nothing. Such a great reminder!

How are you feeling? How was your weekend? What’d ya’ do?

Me?

I’m feeling amazing, weekend was great and, actually, I did nothing.

I mean, I did some things… like spend some truly sacred time with one of my meditation teachers, Karen Maezen Miller, and my lovely DC sangha (Don’t know what a sangha is? Don’t worry. More on this coming soon).

But most of what we did together was simple, blissful nothing.

(If you missed yesterday’s pose, head over to hear Betsy Rippentrop, Dr. Yoga Momma, discuss “5 Tips Every Yoga Teacher Needs to Know” from her unique perspective as a psychologist and yoga teacher, and stay tuned tomorrow to check out Julian Walker of YogaTeacherGradSchool.com!)

Accordingly, this love note is designed for all of you private yoga teacher readers… but even if you’ve never taught or practiced yoga, it’s a message we can all relate to!

The idea came to me last week. I was in the middle of a conversation with a client in my Business Primer program for yoga and wellness teachers, and we fell into a topic that is often dreaded amongst business owners (and particularly private yoga teachers!)… (more…)

Bird Girl Statue from Frontgate

Hello, amazing you. I hope that you’re starting your week in a calm, peaceful mood. Or, at least more calm and peaceful than mine.

Say what? Kelly’s stressed?

Um, yeah. A little. But the big culprit isn’t at all what you might think. (more…)

Glass Half Empty, Half Full
So, mission accomplished. Last week, we moved out of our apartment into our new condo!

At this point in my life, I’ve lived in around 40 houses (true story), and I learn something from each transition.

Last week, I saw a self-care lesson tucked away in my interactions with the various people who delivered all of our stuff. (more…)
