Stressed? Overwhelmed? What REALLY Works.

  • Supta Baddha Konasana in divine heart opener on a folded blanket.
  • Red wine.
  • An authentic connection with a dear, dear friend; feeling truly seen, loved and accepted. Admired, even.
  • Did I mention red wine?
  • A good book. Preferably fiction. 
  • FoodTV.
  • Getting the house really, REALLY clean. 
  • Cooking Network.
  • Imagining running a healthy food truck that serves all gluten free, whole foods.
  • Perfect pan-roasted chicken breasts. Two-nights in a row.
  • Did I mention red wine?
  • Sukasana. Deep, full breathes.
  • A tried and true bedtime playlist.
  • Throwing yourself completely into something you are passionate about - so if you're me: teaching a yoga class, and being truly present for that hour, for my role as teacher, even when everything outside of that hour is truly shitty and overwhelming. 
  • Laughter. 
  • A wee-dram of scotch before bed.
  • And, as my dear friend Molly knows: sometimes you just need potato chips. ;)
