Yoga for Vacations

A REBLOG from Stacy M. Porter. I may use these stretches every morning, vacation or not. Really wonderful!

Also a great way to get ready for a good day of writing.

Thank you Stacy!

Namaste.

Hi Everybody!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did! Me, Mom, and Pat drove down to Chincoteague Island for a few days and, while none of us really got any sleep (I got a grand total of 5 hours the whole time we were there LOL), we had a fantastic time!

There is always a certain amount of stress on a vacation, though. The drive was long and the crazy drivers often left us stressed out, frazzled, panicked, scared to death. Even if it’s just that you can’t seem to get your mind into the present and away from the work that’s waiting for you when you get home, it can be hard to let yourself relax.

So, I made a video for you! Monday Moves presents Yoga for Vacations!

Enjoy and even if you’re not on vacation, I hope this little routine can bring some…

A Free Spirit Life

A REBLOG FROM PURELY PLANT BASED: (Thank you!)

This works with the concept/idea of my blog. A recipe for life.

This picture shows ACTIONS we can take everyday to live a happy, giving, fulfilled life.

I don’t know about you, but for me a reminder never hurts…

juliet 🙂


This is not a recipe for a meal, but instead a recipe for a happy life. I wish I could give credit to the artist but I have no idea where I found this- it was in my downloads folder saved from a facebook post several months ago and I just stumbled upon it and wanted to share. But to whoever created this beautiful artwork, thank you.

Happy Thursday!

50 Excellent Novels by Female Writers Under 50 That Everyone Should Read

I’m re-blogging this article from FLAVORWIRE, 50 Excellent Novels by Female Writers Under 50, so that I will have a permanent record of this list. Plus, I think you should have it too.
Have you read any of these books? If so, I’d love to hear any thoughts/comments about them.

Flavorwire

It’s pretty much been settled that everyone should read more books by women. But when looking for recommendations, it’s often all Woolf, Morrison, Lessing, Austen, Brontë. Of course, these are essential authors for a reason, and you should definitely read all of their books. That said, there’s something to catching a writer at the beginning of her career and following her for years that is supremely satisfying — not to mention the fact that young female writers need readers rather more than Jane Austen does. So in an effort to get you in on the ground floor (or at least, like, the third floor), after the jump you’ll find a compendium of 50 novels written by 50 female novelists under 50 that are worth your time. But these aren’t the only 50 books that fit this description! Read through and add on as you will in the comments.
