HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HEALTHY, JOYFUL NEW YEAR

Hello to all my Inspirational Addict supporters! As we all take a pause from our regularly scheduled programs and sit back to relax and soak up the holiday spirit with family and friends, I am wishing you all so much LOVE, JOY and GOOD HEALTH as we wrap up another year.

Let’s all create a little space for taking inventory of all the wonderful things we’ve accomplished along with the blessings in our lives; big and small and let it flood our hearts with gratitude. May that be the shift, new perspective or continued growth that uplifts us as 2019 is upon us. 

I like to think of this time of year as a good time to sprinkle in as many savasana’s (corpse pose) as you need to reset. In yoga it means to; surrender, let the work go, allow every part of your body, mind and spirit to settle in to the present moment and simply receive with compassion. 

You do not need to seek freedom in a different land, for it exists with your own body, heart, mind, and soul
— B.K.S. Iyengar

I hope you all have a magical Christmas Day and I look forward to sharing a lot more with you in the new year. Thank you for your support and inspiration. Your comments, suggestions, requests… are always welcome here, remember we are in this thing together!

XOXO ANDREA

It's been a beautiful day full of relaxing, great meals, exchanging of gifts, holiday movie favorites, stories and the comfort of being surrounded by loved one's in my parents cozy home. On this very Merry Christmas Eve I've had the time to sit quietly as I feel the warmth of the fire, the twinkling Christmas tree lights, the smell of peppermint oil being misted into the air and the simplicity of just being present. My heart feels so full. 

I love taking time as the year wraps up to write and reflect . As we all know it's easy to get overwhelmed and complain we don't have enough time to get everything done we'd like to do but can I inspire you to take time to do this one thing?  

MAKE A LIST OF YOUR 2016 GRATITUDES

  • grab a notebook and write 
  • sit quietly and think about them
  • use your notes on your cell phone and plug them in

There is no pressure to make it a lengthy list or take more than 10 to 15 minutes to do this. However, I'm going to ask you to enjoy doing it! Praise your accomplishments no matter how big or small and see them physically written or in your minds-eye and honor yourself for all you do in a year. These are the building blocks of joy that shine light into our souls and help us get clear to see what's next for 2017. You're amazing! 

From my family to your's enjoy the Holidays! Sending you all blessings, cheer and all the joys this time of year brings. 

XO Andrea
