Sippin the Tea

Sippin the Tea

Tea is a delicious drink that has so many amazing benefits! I love Tiesta Tea because they categorize their tea so you can choose which function and flavor you’re looking for. Their five different categories include: energizer, slenderizer, eternity, immunity, and relaxer. I love the idea of categories because each day your preferred function could change. For instance, today I am in need of the relaxer function, but yesterday I needed some energy!

Each function has a variety of delicious blends and can even be used to make cocktails. In fact, I’ve teamed up with Tiesta Tea and Joriki Yoga to bring you a fun and exciting yoga & tea mimosas event on March 31st at the Joriki showroom. My blog readers get 50% off tickets!

Things to Leave Behind in 2018

Things to Leave Behind in 2018

There are many things that can occur in one year’s time. Those things teach us lessons and help us grow. While mental health awareness increases (which thank goodness for this), more people are ditching New Year resolutions and are starting to cultivate intentions. Intentions can be things that you want to leave behind from the previous year, things you want to continue doing/bring into the new year, setting boundaries for yourself/relationships, or maybe it’s coming up with a mantra that will help you focus on your goals and being happier. 
I’ve come up with a list of things I want to leave behind in 2018 as well as positive things that I want to continue to work on and bring into the new year. I encourage you all to spend some time meditating and doing the same! 
Things to Leave Behind:
-Always saying yes to stuff I hate 
-SO many memberships that I have and barely use (this is because I’m a “yes” person. I’m kind of like Ross and Chandler trying to quit the gym). 
-Unrealistic expectations 
-Comparing myself to others 
-Gender norms 
-Control and the need for perfection
-Mental health stigmas 
-Overthinking
-Toxic people 
-Overscheduling
Things to Bring into 2019:
-Yoga (obvi)
-More charity work and giving back
-Good belly laughs
-Quality time with loved ones
-Tea drinking habits 
-Wine 
-Meditating 
-Celebrating all things both big and small
-Continued learning  
-Supporting small businesses
-Getting rid of things I don’t need (one step at a time with this, especially the shoes and purses)
-LOVE

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
