Everyday Sacred Self-care

Everyday Sacred Self-care

It can be so hard to think of ways to practice everyday sacred self-care. We all know what self-care is, and that we should do it, but everyday? Today I wanted to speak more about how to bring the ritual into the mundane things we do daily. A few days ago I released a video on my You Tube talking about how it is important to do sacred self care at the end of the year. This time of the…

Working with a mindfulness journal

Working with a mindfulness journal

I have been practicing mindfulness for a while now, hence the name of this blog! However, working with a mindfulness journal had not crossed my mind until Gina Buckney emailed me. They sent me their Daily Mindfulness Journal to review and I was so excited to get a chance to do that. It arrived about a month ago and I immediately started using it morning and evening.

Let’s talk about mobility aids

Let’s talk about mobility aids so that’s things like walkers, walking sticks, crutches, wheelchairs of all the various kinds. Anything that helps us get around in the chronic illness community a lot of people use them not all wheelchair users have to be in a wheelchair full time. Not everybody who uses a walking stick needs it all the time and I think is this big gap between what society expects and what is needed. I’ve heard of people getting…
