I have missed my blog and wanted to write something fun, so here are a few of my favorite things!
1. Tulsi Tea
It's Vata season. Vata, is a concept from the science of life, Ayurveda. My dosha, or constitution, is a Vata type. This time of year, when the weather cools off and the winds start to blow, is Vata time. That means my Vata can get a little...spinny, for lack of a better word.
Tulsi Tea is a great way to balance Vata. Right now I'm drinking the Ginger (decaf) and the Pomegranate (caf) that I purchased at my local health food store. I drink a few cups a day and it helps to pacify my Vata and slow down the spin.

I read a ton of non-fiction around higher education and spirituality, but there's nothing like finding a novel that you can't put down.
A couple of months ago I sat down with all of my journals, notebooks, and post-it notes and realized I needed a new system. I have a great planner where I keep tasks and goals, but I was in need of something to write down ideas, great quotes, or any other thoughts that I didn't want to lose track of. Several of my students had recommended Workflowy so I decided to give it a try.
Workflowy is a free list-making system. You can use it on your computer at www.workflowy.com or download the app. Right now, I'm taking an online course on stress management and I use Workflowy to keep all of my notes on the course. It's a great resource to keep everything in one place, yet separate. And did I mention that it's free?
4. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
This is my current solo binge. My husband and I are watching Quantico at night but I need my girl time too. This show is the total package: hilarious, smart, bittersweet, and relevant. I love it. When you watch "The Sexy Gettin' Ready" song, please let me know.
This blog is focused on exploring ideas around yoga, career, intuition, purpose, and passion. Please leave a comment. Namaste.
