How to work with the moon

Life is full of cycles. Working with the moon phases creates a cycle of living intentionally.  The more you’re in tune with the moon, the more easily your life will flow.

Meditation for anxiety

Here are some of the reasons I used to talk myself out of meditating:

· I don’t have time
· I can’t sit still
· I can’t keep my thoughts quiet
· What’s the point, anyway?

Do any of these reasons sound familiar?

Why I quit Facebook, and why you should too!
