Meditate your stress away.

      A new year! A new fresh start! Have a lot of stress built up with the expectation of the new year? Loosing weight, new career goals, new children, relationship changes and maybe starting a new one. Financial goals to get out of debt, saving money,buying a house? Moving?
       Whew! I feel exhausted already. How do I manage my stress? I recently have been trying meditation practices whether being guided by youtube videos online or contemplative prayer or just sitting still for 15-20 minutes with no noise or distractions. Try to tear yourself apart from the noise of life for just a few minutes each day and see what kind of positive difference it makes in your life! It has done wonders for my anxiety and depression levels as well as energy! You don't have to sit in perfect yoga monk poses. Just the separation from the world for a time to focus on yourself and observing your feelings and not judging them as good or bad or taking hold of them can really help you relax. Just observing your feelings as a leaf floats down a stream. Just try it out! I hope you find some release of stress and positive energy for the year ahead!

How can you get motivated out of your creative rut?

       I often hear people talking about how they have a block or are stuck in a rut of some sort and can not seem to get their creative juices flowing again. Help! Well don't panic whatever you do. This is the opposite intuitive to creativity. There are many factors that cause us all to have that stuck feeling at times. I can not even cover them all in this one post. Sometimes you just have to get out of your normal element to find inspiration.
 When I find that I have come to a weird dry spell I see what other creatives are doing and talk to them. Whether it is about painting, dancing, writing, gardening, or even making dog clothes, you can learn something from everyone! Go to an art museum, a concert, take a walk, sit outside, go to a poetry reading, thumb through instagram or etsy, interview a complete stranger, sit in a park and people watch, do something extremely out of your comfort zone, write lists of things you enjoy, make a bucket list or vision board, read, read, read, watch a documentary. I take my journal and sketchbook with me everywhere. You never know what or who you will run into! It sounds weird but I actually come up with my best ideas while taking a shower. Sometimes we have to relax and just be  long enough to let the creative come to us instead of trying to force it to be captured and enslaved against it's own will. A book for all you creatives and even inspiring creatives out there that I recommend you read is called  "Big Magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert. It is a great inspiration to just...stop beating yourself up and create! Don't be so hard on yourself. Enjoy your work and the journey and it will take care of you. Check the book out here! Relax. Get out and learn something new about anything and have a great day!

Make your delicious fruit and veggie smoothie at home!

What to eat when you can't chew? Obviously my mouth is still sore from the wisdom teeth removal.
This is my good morning fruit and veg smoothie. It tastes amazing! Very fresh and tropical. Try it out!
2 cups Guava fruit juice,
1 1/2 cup Dole frozen mangos carrots and bananas mix
1 ripe banana
1 avacado
Two hand fulls of spinach
1/2 a cucumber.  Sometimes I leave out the cucumber to make it a little more rich.

Blend it up! Enjoy!
