The most commonly asked question from my colleagues is “How do you introduce your students to mindfulness?” I always start with the breath. Why? Because what is more foundational, responsive and relatable than the breath?
It's been awhile friends, but I'm always up to something... so I'm finally ready to share what that is!
Over the Summer I've been creating a website/concept/vision board for this project... but I took my time as needed as this project sits close to my heart and is worth taking time to create.
I formally welcome you to the LIA project!
Have you ever experienced a rush of memories or a sense of calm after smelling something particular? When we smell something our olfactory system triggers brain and has a direct impact on our emotional state.
Knowledge is power of course... by knowing how our own brain is affected by smell we can use essential oils as a tool to guide our emotions into positive and relaxing state.
Q: "Not to ask a too-personal question, but was it hard for you to get journaling? I always find it difficult and I tend to focus on recalling negatives that happened during the day because it "feels" like I need to document my problems. I also find it hard to be motivated, whether I've had a good day, or just to pick up the pen, sometimes I just don't know what to talk about. Do you have any tips?"
My mother always made breakfast a definite priority and yes somehow years later, it can be one of the meals that easily slips and get substituted by a quick coffee. Well, I'm determined to keep the power of breakfast going in my morning routine. Of course the trick is just simplifying it along the way.... especially during report card season!
We’ve all been there… redeye flights, long layovers, overly salty airport food. Traveling is absolutely wondrous, don’t get me wrong, however it can definitely be tough on the body!
