Why you can RELAX on STARTING goals in the New Year…

Why you can RELAX on STARTING goals in the New Year…

I love the energy of possibility, freshness, and the sense of starting over that a new year brings. This time of year often inspires a renewed sense of purpose and determination.  I also like the idea of setting resolutions and goals for the new year, but if you were to ask me what my 2016 resolutions were, I’d tell you, “I honestly can’t remember!”.  For many people, it’s things like “lose weight”, “enjoy life to the fullest”, “fall in love”, “spend more time with family and friends”, “save more money”, “travel more”, and so on.  And although these are all beautiful goals, winter is actually a time for setting goals, not starting goals.  Winter is a

How to Enjoy the Energy of the Holiday Season While Staying Vibrant and Stress-Free!

“Let us cherish the gift of life, love, family, friends, health and peace of mind this holiday season” – Beachbum Wisdom

I can hardly believe that 2017 is almost here!   The holiday season is officially in full swing all over Mother Earth and it is such a treat to spend more time with family, cozy up with warm tea and a favorite blanket, and be in the spirit of the holidays and celebration. Allow me keep it real though… the holiday season also comes with less sunlight (those that personally know me, know that I’m not feeling that at all), stress, crazy busy weeks, and overwhelm for so many people… self included.

A Dream Come True… I Hosted My Very First International Travel Retreat in Bali, Indonesia!

 

Earlier this year, in partnership with a dear friend and spiritual sister of mine who shares the same love for sacred travel, exploration, healing, nature, sisterhood and holistic teachings, I launched Holistic Goddess Retreats.

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

“Find joy in taking care of yourself… Mind, Body, and Spirit.”

In a recent interview by Chelsea Cooper of Lean Body Fit Camp here in Long Beach, CA, I was asked about the basics of holistic living and weight loss.  More and more individuals are becoming aware of the mind-body-spirit connection (yay!) with all of our interconnected parts, and are now seeking products and activities to participate in that make them feel good all over – Chelsea’s clients are no exception, and have been interested in learning more about what they can do to naturally achieve greater health.

Honoring the Energy of Summer

“Summer summer summertime… Time to sit back and unwind… Here it is the groove slightly transformed… Just a bit of a break from the norm…”

It’s almost time!  The season of Summer has always been my favorite.  It’s when I feel most alive, free, and in tune with… EVERYTHING!  The warmth of the sun, beach visits, the smell of sunscreen and coconut flavored body oils, flip flops, minimal clothing, late nights, adventures with my daughters, vacations, no alarm clocks…ahhh, I could go on and on!  Spiritually, there are rhythms of activities connected to the upcoming season change as well.

Your Daily Spiritual Nourishment

“It’s not what we do once in awhile that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.”

Taking time to nourish your spirit is just as important as anything else on your daily calendar.  Not only is this something that I tell every single client I’ve ever worked with, it’s also a personal mantra that I live by, daily.  Every single day, I am devoted to a practice of personal and spiritual development.  Depending on my schedule and how the day flows, it could be a 10 minute guided meditation just before bedtime, an hour long nature walk, or a variety of other rituals that resonate with me.  Whether it’s 10 minutes, or an hour, consistency is far more important than
