Using Your Space as a Tool

Hey guys, I hope you are all well! Recently I've really been thinking about little changes we can make to help us feel better. I think we've all noticed how keeping a tidy, organized space is really calming, and helpful to not only our mood, but our productivity. Our homes are usually a mirror of ourselves, and things that are going on in our lives. If we can learn to take a spiritual inventory of our space, and also upkeep it, there is no reason that our homes (and work places for those of you that have that option) can be not only a sanctuary but a tool for our personal healing. So here's some tips on how we can start transforming our spaces....

Mindful Moments: Then + Now

I love those mornings when the sun is rising in all of its glory, but you can still catch a glimpse of the moon floating in the sky. I love seeing pastel sun sets, and those glorious, vibrant sunrises. I love taking a moment to appreciate them. Most of our days start off in a rush, congrats if you've managed to wrangle a short 10 minutes to yourself in the A.M. A lot of people I know are rushing, worried that they may be late for work, rushing to get food on the table for the kids and usher them off to school. Rushing, worrying, stressing. Then we wonder why these emotions carry on throughout the day! Well the answer...
