Here are some easy tips to help you bring yourself into balance:
Free Yoga Online
Don’t have time to make it to yoga class? I love the site Do Yoga With Me. It’s free (though you can give back and make a donation) and it has hundreds of classes to choose from, including 10-20 minute options for when you’re short on time.
Neck pain has been another thing high on the list of client issues lately. My friend and Thai Massage therapist Pam Herrick wrote this helpful post on how to find the best pillow to alleviate neck pain. If you’re ever in the Hudson Valley, go see her! (I personally love the Bucky pillows.)
EFT for Money Blocks
As most of you know by now, I’m a huge fan of EFT (otherwise known as tapping). This free e-book, “103 Disempowering Beliefs About Money and Success and How to Eliminate Them in Minutes” helps you clear money blocks and worries about your finances.
I know, I know, I’m late to the party, but I’m finally starting to use Instagram.
I just discovered Overheard New York. One of the things I love about living in NYC—lots of crazy things to overhear. Humor and laughter are good for the soul, after all!
And on a completely different note: National Geographic Travel for breathtaking inspiration.
Reduce Holiday Shopping Stress: Gift Certificates
Give the gift of balance and relaxation with a Reiki, Reflexology, and/or Hypnosis session or class gift certificate.
I’ll email you a Gift Certificate PDF and you can forward it to the recipient. If you prefer, I can mail you a hard copy gift certificate card with matching envelope, just give me your address or the address of the person you’d like me to send it to.
Less stress for you in terms of shopping, and you’re helping reduce stress for a loved one!
As the warmer weather approaches and we shed our winter layers, it’s time to get excited about Spring Cleaning! Spring signifies the rebirth and renewal of nature, as well as an end to those slush puddles. While Spring Cleaning is often thought of as dusting your living space and scrubbing your fridge, we can reframe our expectations of this wonderful time of year.
Read below to discover simple spring cleaning tips for true health & balance.
Declutter, Organize, & Donate
Not only will getting rid of clutter in your closet and pantry renew your energy, it’s a great way to give back. Take a look at your closet – anything (gently used, of course) that you haven’t worn in the past year is fair game to donate. In your pantry, restock your shelves with kitchen staples, and stop by your local soup kitchen to donate any unexpired goods.
Reevaluate Your Goals
How have you been doing on your New Years Resolutions? Spring is a great time to revisit the commitments you made on January 1st. Grab a buddy and take that class, start that job hunt, or plan that trip you’ve been wanting to take. Make a mental note of the things that may have gotten in the way these past few months and get started!
If you’re having trouble overcoming a bad habit, letting go of a fear, or making a big life change, hypnosis can help.
Take Care of Your Body
Winter is the time for big sweaters, sweatpants, and blankets. Not only is fresh produce harder to come by in the winter, but the weather makes it harder for us to want to get up and out. Renew your energy by stocking your fridge with fresh, whole foods and getting outside to enjoy the warmer weather. Take the dog for a walk, do yoga in the park, or just read a book under a shady tree. (Here are some of my favorite books for transformation.)
Open the Windows
There’s nothing worse than a stuffy, dry living space. Open your windows and let the fresh spring air reinvigorate your senses. Grab some fresh flowers from outside and bring the season in.
Get a Reiki Session (or hypnosis or reflexology)
Spring is a great time to get centered. Schedule a session to invigorate your mental energy, stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal, and transition into this new season.
Learn Something New
If you’re looking for an empowering, easy way to take care of yourself, the next Reiki I class starts Tuesday, May 3rd. Read more about what you’ll discover in this Beginner’s Guide to Reiki Training.
Take Your Time
Finally, be gentle with yourself and allow yourself the space to enjoy this transformative time of year. Surround yourself with positive people, experiences, and goals to boost your creative energy.
