"O God help me to believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is." -Macrina Wiederkehr
It is officially fall and I wanted to take a second to remind you to put your shrug in your purse. It really comes in handy when the temperatures change by the hour and you’re not sure what layer to bring along.
My favorite way to wear my shrug this time of year is in the “cowl neck” style. It looks great under a loose fitting sweater or a jacket. It really keeps your neck warm. If you need a hoodie it can be wrapped around your neck and the thumbholes provide fingerless gloves. In your Infinity shrug you will look fabulous and feel warm and your purse won't be overstuffed with a sweater or jacket. If you don't have one yet you can get yours here.
Thank you everyone for the positive feedback from the last meditation newsletter, it inspired me to share another little meditation.
Sit quietly in a comfortable position. Inhale in four parts while counting to yourself one, two, three, four and then when you are full of breath hold it for a second. Exhale in four counts. Push the breath out and start again.
- Besides calming you down this meditation allows the lungs to extract more oxygen from the air.
- It Strengthens the lungs breathing muscles.
- Affects the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
Have a great rest of the week and a great weekend. If you are in NYC this weekend, I will be in Brooklyn at The Atlantic Antic, the coolest street fair in New York. My booth will be somewhere between Smith and Hoyt street.
