Cherish every moment

Recently, I've been working on being more mindful, enjoying each moment, being good to myself and being grateful for my friends, family, the CFM community and all my blessings. I challenge you to do the same. Don't waste a day without counting your blessings, loving yourself, sharing your love and making someone smile. When I met with Anna Russ last week, she taught me about using Ayurveda to achieve these goals.
I am SO excited to have Anna join us at CFM next week to teach us to incorporate Ayurveda into our lives to achieve balance, feel better and enjoy life to its fullest!
BOLD STATEMENT: I predict this will be one of the best CFM events of the year. Top three. I know. It's early in the year. That's how sure I am this stuff can change your life. More details below...

Finding Your Zone:

A Lifestyle Overhaul using Ancient Wisdom and Modern Science
Are you in a winter funk? Ever feel out-of-balance or so stressed out and overwhelmed you just don't know what to do?
Has it ever occurred to you that self-care (taking time to nourish and nurture your body) will enhance your quality of life and improve your well-being?
Ayurveda, the science of self-healing, will teach you about your natural tendencies, how to tune into what your body needs, and how those needs change throughout the seasons of the year and various times of life. Anna Russ will lead us through a two-hour workshop with a basic Ayurveda overview on the following topics:
-Passion = Purpose
-Focusing on You!
-Nutrition for the mind, body and soul
-Taking your fitness to the next level
-Stress management tools for work and home
This workshop lasts two hours and costs $20 for CFM members and $30 for guests. Read more about Anna & register here.
