#TEA Tea is a great way to increase your water intake, and use herbs to elevate your mood.



Find your trail.  Life is dynamic, and so is our environment.  Pick a local route that is easy to get to, and will take you between 30-60 minutes to complete.  I live in Boulder, CO, so these types of trails are abundant.  If you are not sure about what is around you, check out.. TrailRunProject.com (link below)  or your local county park trail maps.  Walking in your neighborhood works too.  The point is to get outside.  First things first, start with once a week, if you go more, great!  I like to notice the clouds and local trees.  The same trail can change overnight with temperature, so that is always fun.

 "What would you attempt to do, if you knew you could not fail?"

"Yesterday, you said Tomorrow."

Find your daily mantra...  The word mantra itself is a word or sound repeated to aid concentration in meditation.  I find it incredibly helpful for each day to have a phrase I come back to.

I read Mark Nepo's, "The Book of Awakening" daily, and also follow the I Ching.  Carol Anthony, "A Guide to the I Ching" is another place I seek out inspiration.  Where do you find inspiration?  The Daily Word?  The Morning Show?  There is not right answer, only yours.

Nature is the ultimate source of inspiration for me, but a little nudge in different directions is always helpful. 



 "Decide what it is you want, Write that shit down, Make a F*cking list, and work on it every single day."  I love this phrase.  Creating a journal, is some of the best advice for perpetuating change.  Why? Well for starters, it forces you to begin with a perspective.  I write down my feelings about situations, add photos of things I love, and write down my dreams.  It is like writing a list for Santa year round.  I do believe our thoughts and dreams become us.  Letting the universe know via, getting things out of your head cannot be bad either.  If you get stuck, watch Bridget Jones Diary, she does it well.  For a digital version, my top 5 are: penzu.com, fitday.com, livejournal.com, google.sites.com, and diary.com.  Below is a link to one of my travel blogs/journals.
