October 2020
As we enter the last quarter of the year, how can we do so with a fresh mind and a sense of optimism?
We certainly have all been tested this year in many ways.
Autumn can be a time to liberate yourself from outdated beliefs, resentments, or relationships.
Ask yourself, "What are my burdens? How can I release them?" Perhaps also reflect on what your goals have been this year, and what benefits have resulted from your hard work.
What areas would you like to expand in for your success?
How would you like to deepen your relationships?
How have you grown this year?
Please see below for opportunities to use the tools of yoga and meditation to help you with these reflections.
And remember that counseling is also available virtually as well.
You know where to find me!
