Day 2 of the Reflect & Refresh Photo challenge is my best new discovery and that has to go to my Amazon Echo Dot. I was originally in the market for a Bluetooth speaker and saw a great deal I couldn’t pass up for #blackfriday. I love how my calendar syncs and with a tailored “good morning” routine, Alexa will run through the weather, top stories, and my calendar. I can easily add items to my #todolist and my 3yo loves playing hide and seek with #elmo. @amazon #amazonecho #echodot3 #reflectandrefresh2018 @anchoredwomen #photochallenge #planningfor2019 #purposefulliving #intentionalliving #mindfulliving #plannercommunity #planneraddict . . . . . . . . #momlife #workingmomlife #teacherlife #teacherssupportingteachers #momssupportingmoms #womensupportingwomen

Bay leaves have a long and storied symbolic history. In ancient times, the leaves were made into wreaths for illustrious poets and to crown heroes. Bay laurel is the symbol of wisdom, both learned wisdom and that which we have intuitively in us. Bay leaves can also symbolize prosperity and honor.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've included bay leaves as part of the Winter Solstice Bundle (which you can purchase if you tap the link in my bio!) to invite wisdom and great prosperity into your life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #leafandtwig #handcrafted #winterwonderland #mindfulliving #liveintentionally #liveinthemoment #nourish #warmandcozy #looseleaftea #smallbatch #organic #teaexperience #teaenthusiast #organicliving #organictea #teaenvy #shoplocal #shopsmall #womanownedbusiness #smallbusinessowner #womeninbusiness #creativepreneur #teaforme #herballifestyle #herbsforhealth

When travels lead to connections, and connections become new projects and beginnings. After working on this for the past two months, I’m excited to announce SEED — a retreat for self growth, care and love. Join me and Aila Nordin from NIAT and Subba from BeingMeMindfulness next April 25-28, 2019 for a weekend of new learnings, business and personal coaching, healthy living and intention setting at BeingSattvaa Luxury Wellness Retreat in Bali. . . We’ve put together a 4 day/3 night program that helps connect you back to you in beautiful Ubud. Vegetarian food, spa treatments and other activities including bodywork, acupuncture and sound healing will be offered in this experience designed for those that would like to devote more meaningful time to themselves and their personal growth. It’s basically everything I’m super into, and want to share with you! . . Ideal for first time travelers to Bali, corporate leaders and entrepreneurs who are looking to reflect and reset, and for those that simply want to enjoy a little time to plant a new seed for themselves. . . First six sign-ups receive a special early-bird rate (and going quick!) Spaces are first come first serve for Single-Occupancy and Shared-Double Rooms at BeingSattvaa. More information will be made available with full program details and brochure to come. . . The Seed of Life is a powerful universal symbol of creation, and we have been inspired to create programs, experiences and meaningful encounters centered around seven themes, all inspired by intent.

Frank and Priscilla had had another great run of it in the communiity theatre production of A Christmas Carol. The show reminded them that it was never too late to take the time to be kind or generous. It didn't mean that every moment had to be happy, either. There was sadness in everyone, just waiting to burst out unexpectedly over a cup of cinnamon spiced eggnog at a Festivus party. Frank knew the lost potential of all those eggs could be hard on a person. Holidays were lovely but the highs and lows made for a few tears in the wrapping paper every year.

create your own happy life with little things 😊😃😇🤩

A little update on how I’ve been doing and how mindfulness has been helping me navigate the end of year 💜 Especially as a parent x #mindfulness #mindfulliving #intention

As we move towards the end of 2018, it’s time to start reflecting on what we have achieved, and look ahead to our goals for 2019. How was 2018 for you? For some of us it was magical, for others it was challenging. 2019 is a year to bring in new dreams and inspirations… a time to be more playful, yet focused. A year to take action. The energy becomes easier and real improvements start materializing. This January, I’m excited to share that along with my good friend Donna, Master Spectrum Healer and Teacher, we will be running a one-day workshop to let go of the energy of 2018, and set intentions for 2019.

Spirituality is about finding the miracle in every moment - and you don't have to be religious to do so. Embracing this time of year brings so much magic and joy into our lives! The most spiritual people I know, who often are the most resilient, continually find peace, comfort, and awe in daily life, even within the daily grind. We celebrate both Hanukkah and also Christmas in our home! It's a great way to embrace a variety of traditions and adds texture and dimension to our sense of self. What traditions are your favorite this time of year? #spirituality #resilience

Most of the time, the person who is the hardest on you is yourself. Living with OCD has been more than routines and patterns for me, but rather more intrusive thoughts that have beat be down to some of my lowest points. I recently became a brand ambassador for @ownyourstigma ! They sell positive clothing items that promote breaking mental health stigmas while also donating a portion of each sale to different mental health charities. When I saw this hat it says exactly what I’ve been learning to do this year, “Be kind to your mind.” Speak kindly to yourself because the more you do, the better you will feel. Practicing positive self-thoughts and self-speak has helped me rewire my thoughts!

El post que les estaba debiendo💁‍♀️adicción al azúcar parte 2 Cuantas veces te has dicho que no vuelves a comer azúcar, que la vas a reducir o inclusive eliminar?..🙄.y la siguiente escena eres tu comiéndote un pan o un pastel o un bombombun? 😐Cuando alguien experimenta antojos de azúcar el sentir es que no se tiene voluntad, que no se puede controlar, y déjame decirte que NO ESTAS SOLA. Espero que con estos tips te pueda ayudar: 1.Toma en la mañana jugo de zanahoria sin colar 2. Mantén estable los niveles de azúcar en sangre: Desayuna, almuerza y cena siempre (no excluyas comidas) e incluye proteína y grasas saludables todas tus comidas. 3.Incorpora diariamente vegetales “dulces” cocidos, al vapor, salteados o rostizados: papa dulce, remolacha, zanahoria y auyama. 4.Incluye frutas dulces como banana, dátiles, papaya, uvas, peras, etc. 5.Hidrátate! Lleva tu termo con agua o agua saborizada con limones y frutas a donde vayas! 6.Elimina o reduce al máximo los edulcorantes y/o endulzantes artificiales, estos hacen que tengas mas antojos porque envían señales confusas a tu cerebro. 7. Revisa lo que sientes, porque esta carente de dulce tu vida? Estas muy estresado o aburrido? Te sientes solo? Todos estos sentimientos pueden provocar que necesites algo dulce para “sentirte mejor ” (y allí empieza de nuevo el ciclo eterno de adicción) 8. Duerme! La grelina (hormona que controla el apetito) se incrementa cuando no duermes y te hace tener más antojos de carbs y dulces! Me ha pasado sre últimos mes con Olí 😭 dormir poco desregula todo el cuerpo Espero que les sirvan ❣️❣️ #wellnessjourney #iamwellandgood #holisticwellness #holistichealth #holisticliving #holisticlifestyle #mindfulliving #holisticmedicine #wellnessblogger #wellnessblog #wellpreneur #tucocinatufarmacia #mentesanacuerposano #holisticlifecoach#vidaholistica #momblog #lifeandlensblog #ipreview @preview.app

Skin Care Update: So my lips have been suffering from being dry, cracked, and chapped all last week into this week. Every morning, I keep forgetting to apply the lip balm I still have from @mybutterbarskin from when I purchased some products from there months ago. And where I live, it’s been getting colder and colder. I need to remember that lips should be part of my skincare regimen and that they need love too. Definitely thinking of exfoliating them with honey, sugar, and lemon this week to hydrate, rid of dead skin, and nourish them with antioxidants. • • • #healthandwellness #mindfulliving #naturalskincareroutine #chappedlips #diyskincare #plantbasedskincare

Thoughts impact emotion which impacts behavior. ▪ This is the basic idea behind Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). ▪ I love mindfulness, acceptance, and sitting with what IS, but there is also a time where we need to challenge our thoughts and DO differently. ▪ We don't often get to choose our emotional reaction to things, because it can be pretty ingrained and instinctual. What's cool about CBT is that we know that our thoughts impact how we feel, and we CAN influence our way of thinking. And challenging how we are thinking and start to shift our emotional experience. ▪ So, when you're feeling a certain way, ask yourself, "what am I THINKING that is contributing to this emotion?" ▪ More on this to come. ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ ▪ PC @wellnessstockshop

B l o c k P r i n t is one of my favorite technical crafts. It requires incredible skill, intricate detail precision, and patience. So much patience. It starts with a single solid block of wood. A pattern is intricately carved by hand to create a repeat pattern. The block is dipped in [natural plant-based] dye and then firmly pressed into the [organic cotton] textile. Dip. Press. Repeat. Dip. Press. Repeat. It’s a time intensive process, that’s physically arduous. It requires the artisan to stand for hours at a table, firmly pressing their hand to the wooden block with each pattern imprint. Meticulously checking the alignment of the pattern. Some textiles have multiple layers of color. [like our Paisley + Laal pillows] Like starting all over again, but with a new color. Creating layered beauty. The result is a storied textile, vibrant with passion and heart. — Melinda .

We started off our day with a lovely walk, nature and animals. Was so in need of some quiet us time, after days of running around like crazies before Xmas( it’s seriously like the worlds ending at this time of year 😝) So when I have both my boys home with me for the day I always make sure we have a mindful fun morning together before the jobs. One of them being feeding the ducks at our local canals, plus Zarvi has his morning sleep in the pram and I get a bit of exercise in so win win for us all. And after a busy last nite at the Carols it was a perfect little unwind to start off our busy day again!! .... The kids seriously love birds and I love watching how happy they are when outdoors 😝 But now off to do another million jobs before we head away Friday... And there will be plenty of fun outdoor activities with these two on our camping trip then 🏕😍👏 Super excited!!

💮 As joyful as this time of year CAN be, for many of us, it creates a lot of anxiety. Today, a friend of mine dealing with anxiety reached out and asked me to go to the store with her, as the extra crowds raise her anxious feelings. She felt like having a friend to ground her would be helpful. I was able to go, and happy she reached out for help when facing a difficult day. . 💮 Reaching out for help is one way to help with the stress of this time of year. Here are some other helpful tips. . 💮 And if you are feeling stressed and anxious, perhaps slowing down with us - come in for some yoga and meditation. Check out our schedule and upcoming events, designed to offer the opportunity to slow down and de-stress.

Moments that make you feel powerless, weak, are just illusions. Illusions of the reality. A reality that can be manipulated. So much is hidden from us but it's written that we will find out. You are powerful my friend. The truth is that you are powerful. And once you remember this, everything will begin. #writtenbykatia 💫 #wonderfulawaken

DISCO
(@thisisdisco)

2 Hours Ago

❤️🚘Today I drove around Newmarket and Aurora Ontario donating to my own @discodonates boxes. This year I was so fortunate to have 24 @starbuckscanada locations participate! From Thornhill all the way to Barrie! I don’t think people understand the impact they can have on society with such little amount of effort. I can’t understand why we think this way, but something so small can make such a significant difference in someone else’ss life. I started this campaign 4 years ago with just a single Starbucks location and to see it grow to where it is today is not just incredible, but dammit I want to cry! (I’m a Cancer, it’s something we do). But even more so, there were so many kids that participated this year, so many random humans who reached out (somehow found my phone number) and called just to say they appreciate the effort. Guys, if I could take my name off the campaign I would (but it’s too catchy now). The point of doing these acts is simply to show that ANYBODY on this planet can make a significant difference if they are just given an avenue to do it. Everyday someone walked into one of these locations they were reminded that hey, maybe someone else couldn’t afford $5 for a drink! All I want is for people to reflect. For them to be mindful of their community. We can be SO MUCH more ahead in terms our world coming together as one big ass community and again, I know it may seem like a foreign concept, but I promise I’m not the ONLY one who thinks this way. Nothing in this world will move forward or get solved, without you. No government, famous person, charity, nobody will make that impact, but YOU can. Thank you so much for those that have participated so far! I LOVE YOU. #1love #spreadlove

Here's a great example of using leftovers from @allaboutwell. We recently re-posted Leslie's frittata recipe and she tossed them over some spinach and cashew cheese! There's always room for creativity when it comes to cooking! _ Eggs, spinach, & cashew cheese please!🙋🏻‍♀️ Still eating the same mini frittatas I prepped on Sunday, but I’ll be honest - I don’t looove eating the same leftovers over and over. This morning I just revamped the same meal! I threw the frittatas on a bed of spinach & added cashew cheese (I’ll be honest, I just tried this stuff yesterday & I’m about it) + added a side of avo.🥑🥑🥑 〰️ I feel like when people think of meal prep it’s very boring & repetitive. Ya know the grilled chicken, broccoli, & brown rice all portioned out into tupperwares... & I’m here to tell you meal prep doesn’t have to be boring! Make a staple food and use what’s in your refrigerator to mix it up each day. Make your food fun & enjoyable. 🤗 #allaboutwell #mindfulliving #registereddietitian #nondietdietitian #bewell #wellness #mindfulliving #raiseyourvibration #sandiego #feedyoursoul #holisticwellness #holistic #community #selflove #selfcare #nourish #soul #mindbodysoul #mindbodygreen #iamwellandgood #journey #mealprep #feedfeed #eeeeeats #dairyfree #intuitive #todaybreakfast #breakfast #avocado

Do you think Santa has a Bible? -- Charlotte asked my friend, Cindy this question early this week... Cindy's response "sure, they have long days at the North Pole, no TB or Internet, so He reads a lot" Charlotte "My Mom would love the North Pole! She doesn't really do TV" -- Don't you just love the curiosity of kids?? Where does that go?? What if that wondering, curious, imaginative spirit stayed with us?? I find that when we stay curious, ask questions, and just keep wondering-so much more is possible! -- So let's stay curious my friends, as we go forward into the final stretch of 2018, don't lose the wonder & don't focus on the negative (I need this reminder too)! I get caught to often in the negative! -- BTW I love that my girl is always asking questions-okay, so some days the questions are never ending!! But really I don't want her to stop asking them! & glad she doesn't see me as a TV gal! -- Here's to asking questions & being full of WONDER!! When I am stuck, uninspired, or anxious-I turn to the questions I am asking myself... -- Here's some tips: Are my questions lighting the way to where I want to go? Are my questions focused on deficits or limits? Do my questions allow me to grow & learn more -- Instead of "why am I stuck and not happy" ASK "how is it that I am such a great...?" — Instead of "why do I keep failing and messing up" ASK "why am I such an amazing & gifted person?" -- Even if these questions don't feel totally true, it's okay...you are lighting up pathways in your brain to search for the reaons you are so great, amazing, and gifted!! --

{SHOW UP} // “And even if you are late- so late it hurts- so late that frankly, you are embarrassed- you can still *show up*”. - @cleowade • This is what it means to be an adult: to show up, to own our mistakes, to make reparations and take responsibility where needed, to do the work of learning to be a more compassionate, whole, conscious Human, to hold ourselves and the people around us accountable to moving onward and upward. • The power of Shame is that it tells us (quite convincingly, I might add,) that our mistakes or misses or short-comings make us bad, unworthy, unforgivable, unloveable. • And often times, we believe it. • We stop showing up because we reason that “If I’m already afraid that I might be bad/unworthy/unforgivable/unlovable, and then I show up and someone ELSE tells me that I’m bad/unworthy/unforgivable/unlovable, then it’s confirmed- it’s true. I AM that awful thing. • And so, our defense mechanisms spring into action- they keep us small and prevent us from showing up because (we think) if we *don’t* show up, then there won’t be an opportunity to have that deep dark fear confirmed. We “get” to stay “safe” by staying hidden and small. We’ve rationalized that living with the *possibility* that we are that awful thing is better than living with the fear of it being *confirmed* if we DO show up. • It’s a masterful bind that we find ourselves in- isn’t it? Fear vs. Fear. • So what do we do? • We show up anyway.

This picture is of me, my mom, and my 2 younger sisters. After church one day, we decided to do a little photoshoot, so I could get some pictures for my blog. (Do it for the gram, right?! 😂) We don’t seem to have many photos of all of us together, so we decided we needed to take one while we were there. The only problem is that it was only us 4 and we didn’t have a tripod. So I had them sit down and get ready, I set the camera on top of a backpack and turned on the timer, then I ran to my position and smiled real quick. If anyone saw us in the park that day they were probably laughing. We did this a couple times, but we ended up liking the first shot the best. And if you ask me I think it turned out pretty well. I’m just sharing this little story to tell you that you don’t have to have all the right resources to get started. Use what you have and go from there. 💛

Some of the affirmations I concentrated on this morning are listed below! Feel free to steal them ✨ . 💫 I deserve love, compassion and empathy 💫 I am enough 💫 I am free from worry and at peace with who I am 💫 I am aligned with the energy of wealth and abundance .

Day 2 of our Kids Wellness Retreat underway, the kids loved Yoga and Crystals yesterday 🧘🏻‍♂️ today they are jazzing it up a bit with Dance and Movement, team building 👫 and plenty more! We still have spaces available for January, stuck for Xmas ideas?👆🏼 link in bio to book, let us know it’s a gift and we will send out a personalised invitation to attend 💌

Three Week Yoga retreat ✨ I’m coming for you. ⁣ ⁣ Next week my ladies and I will be working through 3 weeks of yoga to focus inward and set our intentions for the upcoming year. I have HUGE goals for 2019, but those goals START NOW. I think far too many of us get in this mindset where our goals get pushed to the back burner and we say “Come New Years I’ll start ______.”⁣ ⁣ Here’s the problem with that. If you already have in your mind that your goals aren’t important enough to work on NOW and that they carry such little weight that they can be pushed off into the future, the chances of you coming BACK to those goals when the New Year starts are slim. That’s not tough love, that’s just reality. ⁣ ⁣ Journal about that dream. What’s it look like? Who are you surrounded by? Where is that dream taking you? How is that dream benefiting you and your family?...now...DREAM A LITTLE BIGGER. ⁣ ⁣ We all have dreams that we WISH would come true. The question is, what are WE DOING to make those dreams a reality?! Are we sitting here waiting for our dream to come true? Or are we deciding today to WORK to make our dreams come true. I’m deciding the later option. ✨

Apparently starting from the Ming Dynasty, ‘Hong Kong’ was the original name for present-day Aberdeen village, and when foreigners landed in the early 19th century, they mistook the name to mean the whole island and it eventually became common parlance. This is why even after Hong Kong was named, Aberdeen retained part of its origin in its Cantonese name ‘Hong Kong Tsai’, literally meaning ‘Little Hong Kong’.🏗🏗🙏⛩⛩🚤⛵🛳⛴🛥🚢 Aberdeen is famous for its floating village in Aberdeen Harbour. The 'Tanka' are traditionally boat people associated with the fishing industry, and there are still some of them living on boats in the harbour. You can hop on a sampan on either side of the harbour and it will take you on a little tour of the floating village. Beside them is a boatyard dotted with Buddhist and Hung Shing shrines.

This temple started out as an altar built on a rock that stood on what used to be the shoreline, since Hung Shing is the deity who provides protection at sea, worshipped by fishermen, farmers and sea traders. Over the years, land reclamation has ‘pushed’ the temple farther inland. Estimated to be built between 1847 and 1852, it underwent its first renovation in 2015. Despite the dramatic changes to the city around it, the temple is still used by worshippers. Inside is a  Butsudan, sometimes (仏壇, literally "Buddhist altar"), is a shrine commonly found in temples and homes in  Buddhistcultures. A butsudan is either a defined, often ornate platform or simply a wooden cabinetsometimes crafted with doors that enclose and protect a Gohonzon or religious icon, typically a statue or painting of a Buddha or Bodhisattva, or a calligraphic mandala scroll. Outside the svastika was originally a symbol of the sun, perhaps of the vernal sun as opposed to the autumnal sun, the sauvastika, and, therefore, a natural symbol of light, life, health, peace and wealth." The letter was published in Schliemann's book Ilios(1880): "In the footprints of Buddha the Buddhists recognize no less than sixty-five auspicious signs, the first of them being the Svastika ..."
