For a limited time, we are offering a free workshop on "How to deal with stress, anxiety, depression, etc." All you have to do is register. See you there!

Having experienced many challenges in my life over the years, I have been on a journey of growth, spirituality, self-care, forgiveness, and personal development. Many of the topics in the Mandala Journal are techniques I have used to help me through some of my darkest days and to invite more joy and gratitude into my life. Now I want to share them with you!

Mindfulness and meditation are incredibly powerful tools for taking control of our emotions, managing stress and allowing ourselves time to unplug, breathe, and focus on what is most important to us. These practices can also help our minds relax and work through the challenges we just can’t seem to find the answers to on our own. I hope these posts will help you in your personal journey as much as they have helped me in mine.

If there is a topic you would like me to cover, a technique you can share with others, or a story you want to tell, please reach out to me! If your idea or story gets published, you will receive exclusive hand-drawn mandalas just for you.

Happy reading!

Your first thought when choosing a travel companion is compatibility. You start to sift through your list of friends and think back to trips you’ve been on before, and rack your brain for reasons to – or not –extend an invitation to experience the world together. Now put all of those pros and cons towards one of your parents: You already know what you’re getting in to with them, you’re both familiar with and can handle each other’s quirky habits, and finally, perhaps best of all, you know how to have an argument without destroying your relationship (or the trip). You can truly be yourself and have a great time!

Are you looking to boost your immune system, lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation, increase your happiness, and have stronger emotional relationships? Seems impossible to make all these changes in your life by introducing one habit, right? I promise this is not the transcript for an infomercial.

For something that happens naturally to your body, menopause sure feels like it’s trying to destroy you. Like you’re mutating from within and when the metamorphosis is complete you’ll be a whole new you: or maybe have superpowers, at least. Right?!

For several years now the self-care Must-Do’s seem to focus on 2 actions: mindfulness, and writing things down. Mindfulness is a no-brainer by now, right?

It’s hard enough to carve out some me-time during the day to sit still and let your mind focus, and rewiring our brains to think positively is instantly rewarding, but do you have to pick up a pen and scroll something down in an honest-to-goodness journal or sticky note to truly succeed?

A mantra is a creed, a sentiment, or a principle that is repeated, often during meditation, as a point of mindful focus. Mantras can be said aloud or within the mind, and you can use them anywhere at any time. They are a ready-made tool that you can use immediately when anxiety, stress, sadness, fear, or anger take over your thoughts as you find your way back to rationality and peace.

Typically mantras are quite short and if you do a quick search online you’ll find tonnes of common unattributed examples like:

How often does the thought, I just need a moment to think cross your mind? We’re taught as children to stop and think. We spent so much of our youth being trained to stop and think, why can’t we do so as adults? Life experience isn’t the same as muscle memory, sometimes it pays to just stop and compare prices in the grocery store!

Everyone has this thing about cleaning the house before the guests arrive – after breaking an ankle, I couldn't care less. If people are judgemental, they don't belong in my home.

Have you ever had a turmeric latte? That’s the western world word for it, it’s more commonly known in the east as golden milk or turmeric milk. Essentially, it’s hot milk with a teaspoon, or more, of ground turmeric stirred in thoroughly.

With all of Ontario being in lockdown and no end to the global COVID-19 pandemic insight, it can be challenging to stay positive.

While some very organized people start planning for the holidays in June or July, most of us are not thinking about it until we see every commercial and window sign reminding us that it’s time to start spending.
