Happy New Year! 🎉 I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and had a chance to truly decompress and rejuvenate. It feels good to be back. I have a really good feeling about 2017 for all of us. How about you?
Today we're bringing you our Current Mood for January to support the kick off to your best year yet.
What We’re Watching 📺: Minimalism - A documentary about the important things.
This film draws a map from living excessively where we chase the ghost of “more, more, more” to living deliberately – in our relationships, with our spending habits, and with our time. The life they invite us to choose is an intentional life – not a perfect life, not an easy life, but a simple one that involves more meaning.
New Product We Love 😍: Raw Spice Bar
If you’re not into making your spice mixtures, I recently discovered a new spice company that sources top quality spices, grinds them fresh, and mixes them up for you in the most interesting global flavor profiles. Sometimes something as simple as new spices and flavors can re-inspire our creativity in the kitchen (while doing wonders for our health). @rawspicebar
What We’re Making ☕️: Caffeine-Free Turmeric Chai Tea
Reducing caffeine is a great health goal for the New Year and one that will ironically leave you with more energy and balanced moods. I got a new gratitude journal for 2017, and as I was writing in it, I realized that tea makes the list nearly every day. It’s surprising how something so simple can bring such comfort and repose.
What We’re Reading 📚: The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown
In this book, Brown shares ten guideposts on the power of wholehearted living—a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness and belonging versus trying to fit in and live up to our own impossible standards. Read this book if you want more courage, compassion, and connection in your life that stems from self-acceptance and not measuring your value by external things like how much you accomplished in a day. Make 2017 the year for amazing positive change in your life – from the inside out because our thoughts and emotions create our reality.
