As we welcome in a New Year!

As we welcome in the New Year, lets take a moment to reflect and be grateful for the space we hold.

This has been a year of ups and downs, learning, growing and as always many changes.  Most of us start off our new year with many plans to get in shape, eat healthy or make some financial changes, this year will be no different. So as we start to plan out our big ideas and all we want to do this year, think healthy, setting a realistic, wellness routine( yes a routine). 

Setting up  wellness routine helps create a balance and pattern for your daily life in the short term and long term goals. 

Now where do we start:
  • Simple: yes, start simple: look at what your goal or focus is for this year, and start off by adding a little at a time into your routine. This year I'm focused on my wellness routine, I've started with looking at what I do now and what areas I need to work on. 
    • Review the patterns, or routine you have set up now.
      • What can you change, what would you change
    • what is your goal, focus
      • healthy eating, balanced space, self care
    • what steps can I take to make this routine a long term change
      • check in with your family for support, find groups to join to help with your goal, set time aside for self
    • find friends, or a group that is making the same change 
      • take a yoga class
      • find a mediation class
      • reconnect with friends that have goals or focus that is in the same direction.
 As we welcome in a New Year, take a moment, lets see where we can set our goals, and help them stay for the long term. My focus at Metta Wellness is to rework and focus on my own healthy routine, and bring to you what works or doesn't work for me in the new year, and support each other as we find healthy ways to enter the New 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.

In this past year, I moved my business from one location to another location while opening a second location and launching my herbal business into the public online world. While it is all very exciting and quite the learning (and yes mistakes where made, but those are to learn from also), growing and self expansion.

During this growth, I had to learn to trust. Trusting my self, could I do this, how will my clients respond, can I grow enough business and do I have a strong enough support team to make this happen.

Well here I am, three  and a half months in, and taking stock in self, that 'Yes" I can do this. Now, I have not said th…


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, …
