You’ve probably heard of The Secret, also known as The Law of Attraction?  Well, there is another secret that many don’t know about, and it has to do with your very own body.  To be specific, we’re talking about your hair and the reason you have it.  Oh, you’re probably thinking your hair is just for show, but generally, there is nothing on the body that is extraneous. And if it appears that way, it’s only because modern day scientists haven’t figure out its true purpose.

Yoga is a practice that invites inquiry, which can help in the creative process. By asking questions, remaining open and stating intentions, we find clarity and answers and our Dharma or purpose unfolds. Yoga can be the vehicle to pave the way, stilling the mind so that the inspiration needed to move forward in a project emerges from within. Yoga brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve peacefulness in the body and mind. The practice helps one to relax and manage stress and anxiety.  Stress in the body can inhibit and block inspiration and creativity.  When barriers are moved away from our body and mind, we benefit from our ability to focus and concentrate, releasing the creativity within. Through yoga, you access what may be suppressed and through writing, you are able to articulate your thoughts and ideas.

If you’re a military spouse, you already know how challenging life can be.  And if you’re a mother, your primary focus is usually your children’s well-being:  are they doing well in school, are they participating in the right activities… are they getting enough social interaction? The checklist for your children is endless, however, have you stopped to check in on yourself?

There’s nothing better than biting into a fresh, juicy apple that was grown on a local farm in your city, is there?  Shopping at farmer’s markets is fun.  It’s almost sensory overload, all of the gorgeous colors, fresh produce, artisanal food products… and you’re getting fruits and vegetables at the peak of the growing season. This means produce is at its freshest and tastes the best. The food is typically grown near where you live, not thousands of miles away or another country. And shopping at farmers markets also support your local farmers and keeps the money you spend on food closer to your neighborhood.
