This is the time for New Year’s Resolutions. And next week we will have forgotten all about them (or is it just me?) I’m not against resolutions, per se. There is nothing quite like a new beginning to inspire change in your life. However, I have found that I’m not so good at keeping resolutions. Often times we make them too specific or too grandiose, and in the end, we give up on them. We focus on outcomes instead of action,
There are many alternatives to the resolution. As a matter of fact, you can always try a couple to see which works best for you. Just keep them simple and focused so you don’t overwhelm yourself into failure.
1. In January, I am starting another bookclub/workshop session on my book 90 Days to Holistic Wellness. The book walks you through making 1 small change each week for 12 weeks. The changes are small and manageable and cover many different aspects of Body, Mind, Heart and Soul. After 3 months, you’ve made many improvements to your lifestyle on which to build upon.
If you aren’t close enough to join the group, simply work through it on your own. That was the actual intention of the book anyway. You can get a copy HERE.
2. Word of the Year. Choose one over-arching word to inspire you and keep you marching in the right direction. The word can be anything that has meaning to you or that you want more of in your life, such as: Compassion, Love, Self-Love, Abundance, Passion, Creativity, Acceptance, Strength, Hope, Health, Family, Friendship, Mindfulness.
Choose a word that resonates with you. Then, journal about it, meditate on it, write it on a postit and put it on your frige…and let it inspire and lead you all year long.
3. Set weekly mini goals, based on balancing your Body, Mind, Heart and Soul. Decide each week what you want to accomplish that week, to feed these aspects of self. I use my bullet journal to keep track of these.
4. Pick up a copy of Gretchen Rubin’s book “The Happiness Project”. It's filled with great ideas and inspiration for creating a better version of yourself throughout the entire year. You can get a copy HERE.
5. Make a list of your top 5 life priorities. Post them on your refrigerator, write them in your calendar and make a point every day of prioritizing these things. When you give them your attention over time wasters like TV, FaceBook or whatever else tends to steal your time, you will see positive change in your life.
The concept of a New Year’s resolution is simply to identify a priority and set a goal toward it. What ways do you have of identifying your priorities and making sure you meet them? Feel free to share in the comments.
Happy New Year – may 2017 be wonderful!
It’s that time…when I like to take a few moments to ponder the previous year.
What went right in 2016? So much!
Simplification has been a key theme for me in 2016. I continue to fight the battle against stuff, finding inspiration in minimalist blogs and podcasts. I have no intention of living in a sparse, tiny house. However, I find that when I am more intentional about the stuff I allow in my home, I end up living in a home that is truly me, rather than in a space full of stuff.
My daughter started her Senior year of high school, got her license and started her college search. If this isn’t a growth opportunity for mom, I don’t know what is. The idea of my baby becoming an adult and leaving the nest is crazy to me and brings about so many emotions! Happiness, sadness, pride, fear, etc etc. Thank god for time in meditation to sort it all out!
My business is growing and changing as an idea took on a life of its own! After a few conversations with a new acquaintance, the universe shoved us along until we partnered up and opened Holistic Hub. HH offers yoga, meditation, nutrition/wellness coaching, wellness and creative classes and more. It’s been (and still is) a whirlwind ride and I am so excited to be a part of it! And, I am so grateful that I have a loving husband that has been supportive and understanding about it all.
I have reconnected with my favorite hobby. I always loved to read, but as life gets busy, reading was one of the easiest things to let go. I did still read, but not as much as I would have liked. Then I stumbled upon a podcast that inspired me to head to the library and grab a book! Since finding “What Should I Read Next” in June, I have read so many books I can hardly believe it. And not because I cleared my schedule and suddenly had nothing else to do. I simply made it one of my priorities…and that is all it took! You find time for what you prioritize. (“Instead of saying ”I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels.” – Laura Vanderkam)
I started a bullet journal, which I have found to be a great tool for scheduling, planning and keeping track of things (like books to read). This tool has a lot more potential, which I hope to harness in 2017.
What went wrong? Luckily nothing too big!
Relationships, sigh. I'm not the best at making time to nurture relationships. I had told myself I was going to be more intentional about reaching out and connecting with friends and family in 2016. I did not do as well as I had hoped. As a matter of fact, I almost failed. Not to say I didn't connect with friends at all...I did. And I did have lots of fun in 2016. But in the end, I didn't make the soulful, personal connections I had hoped for because I didn't truly make it a priority.
I may have made time for reading, but another passion that I have been ignoring is writing. I had intended to spend more time writing in 2016, even if it was simply writing thoughts in a journal. I didn't write even a fraction of what I had hoped to.
A new year brings new opportunities to grow and expand, I can't wait to learn what 2017 has in store for us. But before it gets here, I highly recommend that you spend just a few moments contemplating 2016. Then, thank it for all the lessons it offered, and set your sights on 2017.
Here's to 2017! May it be the best year we've experienced so far!!
~ Namaste ~
Something about this time of year always makes me want to purge my belongings, simplify, get rid of all the excess stuff. I am inspired by The Minimalists, Joshua Becker (from Becoming Minimalist) and my friend Diane, who is writing a blog series on decluttering (check it out here).
I do truly find that neat, uncluttered surroundings make me feel more comfortable. I do not feel at home in the midst of chaos and clutter. I prefer my sanctuary, my home, to be filled with things I love, but not to the point that it’s busting at the seams. I have spent years trying to find a balance of having things I love, but not too many. I used to have many more tchotchkes in my house. If I saw something and liked it, I wanted it, I bought it. But then I realized I had so much stuff, that even in a pristine state, my house was almost cluttery. So then, when just 1 or 2 things were out of place, it tipped the scale to feeling cluttered. Over the years I have slowly but surely purged many of my possessions and given away a lot of stuff. When I think of how much money I spent on that stuff, I get a little nauseous.
But even after years of attempting to simplify, and many big bouts of decluttering, it seems stuff always finds a way back into my house. Don't get me wrong, my house is still pretty clutter-free by most standards. However, it still feels like a never ending battle. Why? Mostly, I blame Amazon.com! LOL – seriously. That 1-click, free shipping with prime is my downfall! Okay, it’s not just amazon, it’s Thredup (an online used clothing store), Target.com, Wayfair and it’s facebook ads showing me things I didn’t even know I needed! We live in a very consumer driven society, and the internet puts a whole world of shopping right at my fingertips. Sometimes I’ve hit buy before I even really think about whether I need it or not..or what I'm even going to do with it. And may family is no help! Last night we were talking about an underwater camera for an upcoming vacation. Within moments my daughter had some pulled up on Amazon and my husband was saying “just buy it”. In this instance I was the voice of reason; "Wait…I think we need to think about this purchase for, oh I don’t know, more than the 5 minutes it took to scroll to a decent priced option with good ratings!!" I managed to press the pause button on that purchase! Yea me!
Then, later in the evening, I was reading through some facebook posts that I follow from my favorite inspirational minimalist people and I found one that spoke to me. (and then I proceeded to lose my place and now I can’t find it! ) Grrr. Sometimes Facebook and my phone don’t play nice. Anyway, I think it was from Joshua Becker, but it could have been someone else (sorry if I’m giving the wrong person credit for this)…but it was a post about The 30 Day Shopping List. It is an idea to curb these impulse purchases. The idea is that if you see something you would like to buy, but it’s not something you absolutely need, you put in on a list, and revisit it in 30 days. If you still want it, go ahead and purchase it…but often by then the excitement about the item will have waned, you will have had time to really consider whether or not it will bring you a benefit and chances are, you will chose not to make the purchase. Honestly, I can’t tell you how often a package arrives at my house and neither my husband nor I can even remember what it is. How bad could we want it if we already forgot we ordered it just 2 days ago?
I don’t know if 30 days is really the best number. I’m afraid I could talk myself out of using the tool by rationalizing that it may not be available in 30 days. Even a 1 or 2 days would be plenty. Often all we need is just a little time gap to stop the impulsive purchase.
As I sit here, I think maybe a 2 day rule is good enough for me. I know how my mind works…too much time and I will buy it anyway for reasons stated above. Too little time and I will justify the purchase by telling myself I know I’m still going to want it tomorrow, so why waste the time. My plan then, is this… If I consider purchasing something, I will write it down in my planner. I will revisit the item in a couple of days and see how I feel about it then. I expect most of the things I think about buying, I will not buy in the end. I expect this tool will work well for me because I'm primarily an online shopper.
Does anyone have a similar trick they use to curb impulse buys when out shopping in the real world? I would love to hear about them.
Wish me luck with the 2 Day Shopping List! Try it yourself and let me know how it works for you!
PS – It also occurs to me how blessed I am that this is my problem. I have access to more than I need and would like to stop consuming so much. This is clearly a 1st World problem. I feel a little embarrassed to think about how so many in the world struggle for basic needs, live in war torn countries, struggle with disease and death…and here, I am so blessed, that
having too much is my problem. Remembering this on a daily basis is also a great way to avoid buying stuff I don’t need.
I am spoiling myself this December, which I try to do every year. So many people find this time of year stressful; and it can be, if you don’t start early and make an intention not to stress out!
Every year, I schedule vacation time around the holidays. Sometimes a few days before Christmas, sometimes it’s the time between Christmas and the New Year. This year it’s both! I find having a little down time, to relax and spend time by myself really sets me up to enjoy a stress free holiday season…which allows me to really cherish my time with friends and family!
I am currently sitting by the Christmas tree, drinking a cup of tea, listening to Christmas music and writing this blog. I can’t tell you how happy and spoiled this makes me feel. During this time off, I am being productive. I am doing laundry, blending tea for customers, working on my business plans for 2016 and more; but I am doing those things in between reading a good book, watching cheesy Christmas movies, journaling, meditating and doing yoga. I have this time to myself because the final gifts were purchased and wrapped days ago, the only task left is to grocery shop for Christmas dinner, which I will do tomorrow.
Do I feel a little guilty sharing this with you? Absolutely not! Because if you are one of the many people who are stressed out and feeling overwhelmed, I hope that I inspire you to do something different next year. It’s not difficult, it’s all about planning. The holidays come every year…it shouldn’t be a surprise. Don’t wait until they are upon us before you start to prepare.
I wish you the best for the remainder of this year and I am looking forward to all the possibilities 2016 will bring!
I recently went on a lovely, week long, tropical vacation with my husband and a couple of our dearest friends. Before I left, I promised myself that I would spend the week in the moment or in a good book. No mindless internet, minimal email and absolutely no Facebook. Why was I so adamant about this? Because more and more, I find myself filling every down moment cuddled up with my smart phone. Standing in line? Better check my phone. A lull in conversation? Better check my phone. Sitting at a stop light? Better check my phone. You get the pattern here, right? I bet you do, because I see many of you doing the same exact thing!
I realized awhile back that this pattern was becoming my new normal, and I didn’t like it. So I started paying attention and realized I turn to Facebook every time I get a spare moment. All the time! I find this rather funny (in an odd way), because I love quiet and solitude. Why would I fall into a habit of avoiding it?
Truthfully, I have no idea why. There is just something about the constant contact that is addictive…maybe it’s the fear I might miss something “important”. But it really doesn’t matter why…the point is that I decided to take a break while I was on vacation. But I was seriously concerned that I wouldn’t be able to do it.
Are you wondering if I was successful? Are you a bit curious? Did I struggle or cheat? What did I think of it? You probably know the answer already...It was awesome! I checked for emails once a day, twice if I thought there might be something from my daughter. But I did not open Facebook, despite several emails from them. Facebook quickly became aware of my absence and started emailing me…to be sure I was aware of the growing number of notifications I was missing out on. LOL. I was pretty sure none were too earth shattering!
Vacation came to an end and we returned home. A day later, I finally logged in to like something I knew my husband had posted. I didn’t care to look at anything else, so I didn’t. The next day (2 days after return) I logged in to acknowledge a post I had been tagged in, but I didn’t care to look at anything else, so I didn’t. 3 days after my return I logged in, did a quick 5 minute scan of my notifications, liked a couple pictures people posted for Father’s Day and that was it. I am really loving less Facebook in my life. Over a week later, I am checking Facebook 1-2 times a day, for 5-10 minutes. Does this give me time to see everything in my newsfeed? Nope…and I’m okay with that.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think Facebook has some wonderful qualities!! I love seeing pictures of friends and family I can’t visit often enough, I love my friend’s inspirational posts and I love some of the funny ones as well. I love learning of new books from my favorite authors, meditation programs offered by my mentors or herbal tidbits posted by other holistic practitioners. All of this stuff is great! Luckily, I have made it a habit to unfollow people that post things I don’t really appreciate, so my newsfeed tends to be pretty positive and happy, but it still seems like many of us are falling into the trap of confusing Facebook with real life.
So I am making a commitment to myself, to increase my mindfulness…and the only way to do this is to decrease time spent in mindlessness. I am committing to minimal Facebook. I encourage you to do the same. Maybe your Facebook isn’t your thing. What is your mindless poison? Too much TV? Twitter? Pinterest? Instagram? Snapchat?
Could you spend a little more time being present in the moment rather than reaching for your computer, tablet or phone every time you have a moment to yourself? Maybe instead, just sit and enjoy that moment of peace. That is certainly what I’ve been doing, and loving every minute of it.
Here in the U.S. we have a holiday weekend coming up. Consider putting social media in timeout for the weekend…to just relax and enjoy living in the moment. Try enjoying real, live socialization with friends and family, or get out in nature for a solo walk. Enjoy some introspection, read a book or watch some fireworks. Often, life is better when you live it unplugged!!!!
Enjoy the peace!
Some include outerwear, some don’t…usually PJs and workout clothes are not included. Some people include jewelry and sunglasses, some don’t. Bottom line, the “rules” of a capsule wardrobe can vary a lot, as do most things “minimalist”. It is always best to personalize them. You are unique, after all.
There are a couple reasons I like the idea of a minimal wardrobe…
1) When I was first bitten by the minimalist bug, I did a pretty severe pruning of my wardrobe. I donated a good 1/3 of my wardrobe.
2) Decreasing my wardrobe was awesome, because after the pruning, everything I pulled out of my closet looked good on me and made me feel awesome.
3) Because of reason 2, getting dressed in the morning was much simpler. None of that putting something on, deciding it didn’t look good and hanging it back in the closet. If I didn’t think it looked good, it was no longer in my closet to begin with!
4) Just like reason 3, getting dressed in the morning was much simpler, because there weren’t nearly as many choices.
My wardrobe is fairly minimal in comparison to that of many of my friends and even what it used to be. However, I find things have a way of sneaking in…that great sundress you found for a steal at $5, the skirt your friend gave you because it didn’t quite fit her…the sandals you found buried in the hall closet that you forgot you owned. New stuff comes in, stuff gets worn and decisions need to be made on what stays and what goes. Committing to a capsule, means you are less likely to shop, unless it is to specifically replace something in the capsule. Ex, if you are committed to only 33 items, you will shop less and think long and hard before buying anything new.
It seems like a capsule wardrobe would be fairly easy if you live in a consistent climate. For myself, thinking of a spring wardrobe, I’m reminded that today I am wearing shorts and a tank top, while just 4 days ago I was wearing long pants, a sweater, wool blazer and 2 pairs of socks. This makes planning a capsule wardrobe a bit difficult. I worry that the concept is too rigid. I wouldn't want to exclude clothes I love just to hit an arbitrary number. However, because I love the idea, I don’t want to poo-poo it. Maybe I just need to remember that my goal is not minimalist…it is enoughalist.
What would I put in my Spring capsule? Without looking in my closet, I did a quick listing of pants, shorts, capris, long sleeve shirts, sweaters, t-shirts, tank tops, dresses/skirts, jacket, shoes, scarves….my quick and dirty number is 60. That seems like a respectable number considering that I have to dress for 40F – 90F, work and casual. I’m sure I’m forgetting about awesome pieces of clothing that I will want to include, but that’s okay. I think I will take a look and see where I am now…and then decide where I want to go. I'm sure I'm currently above 60 items, but maybe some of those need to go? I shall see...
Do you own so much you feel like you never have anything to wear? I challenge you to check out one of the blogs or books below and take a closer look at what’s in your closet. And please, share your thoughts on the size of your wardrobe in the comments below.
I am intrigued by the concept of minimalism. I read blogs and books on the subject. I have donated and tossed boxes and bags of unused stuff. I would love to get rid of more. I feel stressed and uncomfortable in messy or cluttered space. I find the less cluttered my home is, the calmer my mind.
I would love to consider myself a minimalist, but I just can’t. Why? Because despite my efforts to rid my home of junk, it seems like I still have way too much stuff to be considered a minimalist. My home is fairly clutter free…just the typical trouble spots (the transient papers that pile up in the kitchen and in my office, the hallway closets that became the catch-all for anything without a home, the garage which catches any outdoor clutter, etc). I look at people I consider true minimalists (Leo Balboa, Joshua Fields Millburn, Ryan Nicodemus, Francine Jay…just to name a few) and I think “Wow, I’m not even in the same league…I’m still surrounded by stuff”.
Then just recently I was reading a book, “Essays by The Minimalists”, written by 2 of my favorite minimalists Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus. In the book, there was an essay about not relating to the title “minimalists”. Apparently there are many of us out there that love the concepts, but can’t quite connect to the term, minimalist. So what do The Minimalists suggest? Pick a different word.
After a bit of soul searching, I decide I subscribe to the concept of enoughism….I am an “enoughalist”. It has a nice ring to it…sort of sounds like a character from Sesame Street, right?
Why did I choose this word? Because, it helps me put my belongings in perspective. For example, when thinking of my wardrobe, I don’t want a minimalist wardrobe. I could never have the clothes I love and feel like a minimalist. I don’t want a closet crammed full of clothes either, I want just enough…no more, no less…just enough, for me. Given this new concept, do I have still have too much stuff? You betcha! But I am now on my way to being the perfect enoughalist, which is a much more realistic goal for my life. I only have to figure out, "what is enough for me?" Should be simple, don't you think? (sarcasm)
But how about you? Do you want to be an enoughalist too? Stay tuned for a few more blog posts to inspire you on becoming an “enoughalist”. ;-)
Recently I have been contemplating how connected I am. I’m not talking about my connections with friends and family, I’m talking about my continuous connection to the world via social media With my wonderful smart phone, I am constantly connected via email, text and Facebook. It occurs to me that while I have made many changes in my life to increase my mindfulness, my smartphone continues to be a hindrance to this.
I cancelled my cable to decrease my TV time. I have committed to my daily meditation practice and have incorporated mindful moments into my day. However, I still find that when moments of downtime arise, rather than sit with myself for a moment, I instinctively reach for my phone to see what’s happening in Facebook-ville. I have done a pretty good job in designing my newsfeed to pump in lots of uplifting, spiritual and happy posts, but even so, this habit interferes with my ability to just sit in silence. I often find myself so distracted by my newsfeed that I lose productivity in areas of my life that I truly enjoy. Now, Facebook isn’t all evil. It has allowed me to reconnect with people that I may never have connected with and it is a great vehicle for sharing pictures and stories with family and friends. However, I have realized that, overall, I allow the negative to outweigh the positive.
As I contemplate this, I realize that I give up moments of my life to Facebook. It is almost an addiction; that I might miss something…and because of this addition, I miss a whole lot…of real life.
Because I think there is a positive side to Facebook, both personally and for my business, I am not considering deleting my account and forgoing it completely. I am, however, going to seriously alter my use of it.
My first thought was to allow myself to check Facebook only 3 times a day, but I fear that might be a bit too severe…and I believe in making small changes (we tend to be more successful with small baby steps). In order to know where to start, I need to get an idea of where I’m starting from. For the next couple of days, I’m going to keep track of how many times I check Facebook. I will simply put a sticky note on the back of my phone and mark it every time I pick up my phone to check Facebook. Once I have a base line, I will slowly start to decrease the number, until I’m down to a fairly low number that I think is more appropriate. (I have no idea what that number will be).
Do you have an addiction to social media…Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or your RSS feed? Would you like to join me in decreasing the distraction and increasing connection to the real world around you and connection to yourself? I urge you to make this change. It doesn’t have to be big, in fact it’s better if you just start small! Disconnect, just a little at a time!
Ironically, I urge you to connect with me on Facebook. Where, during the specific time when we mindfully chose to connect, we can support each other in making better choices for ourselves!

Yet another post in my blog series to inspire small steps toward holistic wellness....because large, grandiose changes rarely stick. For long lasting change, baby steps are the way to go. So today let's talk about a way to decrease some of the toxins in our lives.
Awhile back, I wrote a blog post about natural cleaners, because I believe this is another easy way to detox our lives. The cleaners we often clean our homes with are nothing more than toxic chemicals. Sure they kill bacterial and viruses and make the house smell nice, but what we are really doing is filling our homes with toxins.
Now, I’m not saying to toss all your cleaners today. Start with this….remove all cleaning products from your KITCHEN. Get an inexpensive spray bottle and fill it with white vinegar. This is an inexpensive and much healthier option. (If you need an abrasive cleaner, us a sprinkle of baking soda.)
The kitchen is that last place you want to use store-bought cleaners. While spraying the cleaners around the kitchen, you are not only breathing in those chemicals, you are also contaminating counters, cutting boards and ultimately, your food. Who wants that?
Now, if you are like most people, you are worried about the smell of vinegar. Yes, it is likely to remind you of coloring Easter eggs. However, as soon as the vinegar dries, the smell is gone and you are left with the clean smell of…nothing.
If you don’t like the smell of nothing, dab a little lemon juice or a good essential oil on a rag or paper towel and wipe it around on your counter or the sink faucet. Just be sure that whatever oil you use is suitable for ingestion (many aren’t). Another option to freshen the room is simply to create a potpourri pan on your stove. All you need is a small pan of water and some smell good items such as an orange slice, cloves & cinnamon or lemon & rosemary. Let your spice rack scent the kitchen!
Making this one small change, will decrease toxins in your home and therefore from your body as well…taking you one more step in the direction of holistic wellness!

Do you have a nice set of china, a fancy dress or nice bottle of wine that you are saving for a special occasion? Do you have an actual specific occasion in mind or is this just your mind talking you into saving it vs enjoying it? I have been battling “special occasion disorder” for some time now. Some days I win, some days I lose, but it’s a battle worth fighting.
Many years ago, my grandmother wrapped each piece of her milk glass dinnerware set in newspaper, boxed them up, and gave them to me. I had no idea if they were valuable or not, but they were simple, elegant and I loved them. So what did I do with them? I lovingly placed them on a shelf in the basement and continued to use my everyday Corningware that I didn’t care for at all. I actually forgot I even had those dishes that I loved so much…until one day while searching in the basement, I came across the boxes. “Oh yeah, I remember these!”, but in the basement they remained.
One day after reading an article about minimalism, I started to think about all the stuff I have in my house….I could certainly get rid of a lot. I thought of the set of dishes sitting in the basement; too nice to use for everyday dishes. Then I realized the absurdity of my thoughts. I have a set of dishes I love, but they are just too good to use on an ordinary day?? Isn’t every day special? Isn’t every day a gift? Don’t I deserve to surround myself with things I love rather than burying them in the basement? I marched to the basement and hauled the boxes upstairs. I washed and dried them all, then pulled out my CorningWare, boxed it up and donated it. For the last few years I have been blessed every day with my grandmother’s beautiful dishes. Reading about minimalism has shown me that this is a pattern in my life, and I suspect it may be in yours as well.
The easiest and most common place to start when trying to minimalize your life a little bit, is your wardrobe. When I first tackled my closet, my disorder became evident again. I found in my closet some of my favorite clothing items…all pristine and never worn…to be sure that when that special occasion came along, it would be clean, wrinkle free and ready to throw on. The clothes I cared less about, were worn all the time…I suppose because I didn’t care if I ruined them or not. Once I realized this pattern, I knew there was work to do. I started with a purge of things I know I didn’t really like (no matter how often I wore them)…maybe the color just wasn’t right, the fit was a little weird or the style just wasn’t “me”. That was a good start, but where to from there? I found a box to become my donation box. For the last year or so, when I put on an item of clothing and I realize that it’s shrunk and the fit is now off or that I just don’t feel great when I’m wearing it, it goes right into the donation box. I have also tried the rule that if I don’t wear it during the season that it is appropriate for, it has to go in the box. This has me rethink the idea of not wearing my favorite things; I don’t want to give them away!! I’m not perfect at following this rule, but the switch in mindset has made all the difference in the world.
Are you suffering from “Special Occasion Disorder”? Do you have a nice set of wine glasses you never use because they are too special? A beautiful journal you never write in? A great smelling candle you never burn? Cologne you never bother you use? If any of these are true for you, what are you waiting for? Every day is a gift; you get to live this day…is there a more special occasion?
