I made this virtual present for you… Its a list of some of my most favorite things, tools, resources, and inspiration from this year. If you feel the urge to share some of yours, I’m so down for that. We could create a new favorite things tradition! We could change each other’s lives!
So here it is:
Ashwagandha – An Ayurvedic herb AKA Indian Ginseng. Its an Adaptogen supplement that promotes & supports vitality, strength, sleep, Adrenal health, calming the mind & combating stress. I put a half tsp in my coffee every morning it’s also good in warm milk and honey a few hours before bed.
Bullet Journaling – A simple analog method for organizing ideas, task lists, and everything else. I’ve created one of these each quarter of the year. Everything from my monthly calendars to journal entries are in one composition book making it easy to keep track of and use as a record and writing companion. If you like designing your own planners you might love this method too.
Blue Lotus Chai – I’m a chai drinking machine in the winter and this spiced black tea is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up. It’s just so yummy with some vanilla creamer or eggnog.
Alison Armstrong’s Celebrating Partnership workshop recording on Audible. A’s work has changed all my relationships this year not just with my partner but with my children and friends and coworkers and everyone! I am so grateful for her passion and insight.
Dr. Teals – Epsom salt and essential oil-infused body wash and massage oil. So goood! Give yourself a soak or massage with this stuff and you’ll be feeling like your own BFF full of gratitude and self-love.
This song Everlasting Light by the Black Keys.
Hoopla Digital Library – I live off this free app. You can barrow free audiobooks, movies, and ebooks by setting up a free account with your library card and downloading the app on your mobile device.
This song Let Myself Flow by The Avener. The Avener Pandora station is now my go to when I am craving bass beats and chill vibes.
Manifestation Maps – a list/meditative practice that clarifies and leads you towards your deepest desires.
Wins Celebration – This year I added a new ritual to my monthly calendar. Around the time of the new moon, I gather with a friend to share and celebrate a list of wins from the previous cycle.
All the Love in the Universe,
Ps. I hope one or more of these things is like a gift to you. Please feel free to share yours in the comments! It’ll be like a virtual New Years’ party!
