It’s 2016!

The beginning of the year is about making resolutions and setting intentions that will add value to the quality of our lives.

This year ask yourself these three questions. They are guidelines to making the best possible choice:

  1. Does it calm my emotions and nervous system?
  2. Does it vitalize my body?
  3. Does it give me mental clarity?

The answer to these questions will not be an emphatic “yes” all the time, nor should they. There is no room here for judgement or a preconceived idea of what is “right” or “wrong” for you. It’s all practice. It’s all experience. Using these questions as guidelines can help you balance your mental, physical and emotional systems — enhancing the value and quality of your life.
