The Holidays are a wonderful and busy time of the year, friends, family, holiday parties and so much more...

During this time of the year, it's important to take time for yourself.
Finding ways to stay stress free will help you go through the season and make for a joyful time.
  • Meditation: take some time for yourself everyday. Find a quite space and time at least once a day for 10-15min. You may find that guided, mindfulness, mantra or clearing the mind meditation works for you. Explore and find the one that connects to you. 
  • Healthy Eating: As we enjoy our holiday parties, food, wine, many tempting treats make sure your are getting some healthy alternatives in. Check in, make sure you are eating balanced meals and plenty of fluids to keep the body nourished during this time of the year.
  • Enjoy a nice cup of tea or hot cocoa and just sit back and enjoy.Herbal teas can be nourishing, healing and calming, find the tea that speaks to you (I go towards my meditation tea during this time if year). I love a good hot cocoa, I enjoy creating and sipping chocolate and adding herbs, yes I add herbs to my hot cocoa. When I have time to relax with a cozy hot cocoa I have two blends that I pick from, one is a heart balancing cocoa with rose and hawthorn and the other is an immune boaster (perfect for this time of the year.

Ayurveda, lets dive deeper

So what is Ayurveda?

I get this question a lot, or I hear - Ayurveda is to complicated. Yes, Ayurveda can be complicated, but I don't feel it should be and doesn't have to be.

Lets dive into Ayurveda.
First, how did I get to Ayurveda, lets go back a little ways. In 2006, I started my training at the Maharishi Ayurveda Center in Lancaster, MA. I had just finished a program at Dana Farber with Energy work and massage for cancer clients, when I started the training at the Ayurvedic center. The similarities between the two made for the perfect transition. Both looked at the importance of balance, digestion, proper sleep and the positive outlook of the emotions. As I dove into Ayurveda it was clear that being in balance with yourself and your environment effected every element of health. This was the beginning of a path in a  holistic lifestyle.

Trust in Self

This has been a practice for me this past year. Learning to trust in self is key to allowing my personal and business to continue to move forward and grow.

As we move out of 2018 and are into 2019, we where welcomed with an incredible lunar eclipse of the blood wolf moon. This is energetically a time to stop and reboot, to speak to your true self.

Like the Mantra on my foot, it is the lotus coming up from the mud, patience, and beauty comes through. This is for me powerful. Metta Wellness stands for "loving kindness", with the lotus this is always a symbol for me that working through and staying on your path beauty opens.

Metta Wellness has been in a process of change, always moving forward, learning, and exploring along the way. As we moved into a new location, adding a second location and launching Metta Herbals into the online market and general public. Change, patience, and trust is my Mantra for this opening.

Lets step back a little. In May Metta Wellness moved into its new location in Shrewsbury,calming, easily located and just the right size.  This space also allows for the growth in Metta Wellness and Herbals. Taking time to set up and shift into this space (still organizing a few small details), adjusting and refocusing on the space and the path for Metta Wellness & Herbals. Change was our Mantra in May, …
