Journal prompts

Journal prompts

To consider each day this week.

Are you keeping around folks who criticize, judge, or say no to you?
Are you keeping company with those who encourage, motivate, cheer you on and applaud you?

To schedule time (an hour) to dive in deep and contemplate. 

What are your health and wellness goals this coming year?
What are you working on with your kids or your family?
What is your biggest concern with your own health?

To keep in mind throughout the season.

As we transition into the Kapha season, follow your feelings of wanting to hibernate, stay warm and close to the hearth. Family time is some of the best medicine for growth - revealing ourselves to each other, learning to navigate deep seeded habits and triggers. Be gentle, be kind, be polite, but be willing to be true to yourself - showing and teaching your kin how to love (you) by loving your own self well.
