I’m pleased to have joined the team of a newly launched online magazine. Honest to Goodness is aimed at people seeking to nurture authenticity, abundance and joy in their lives, deep connections with family, friends and colleagues, and a healthy, sustainable planet.The magazine is the brainchild of founding editor, Amanda Brown. When her favorite lifestyle print magazine recently folded, Amanda decided to take matters into her own hands and set out to recreate some of its best features in an eco-friendly online publication. I hope you’ll check it out and subscribe!
I will contribute a regular column on topics that complement the theme of each issue. This first issue is about creating space between working and not working. This subject is near and dear to my heart as it’s so common these days to see people tethered to their technology and never really separating work time from family/play time. This is not limited to people with jobs, by the way. If you want to observe busy, look no further than the typical “retiree!”
In my inaugural column, I suggest creating a homecoming ritual to mark the end of the working day. If you do create a ritual for yourself, please let me know how it’s going in the comments section.
By the way, not only have I joined the team as a regular columnist, but the cover story on the first issue is about my journey from corporate publishing executive to yoga therapist. Mine was indeed a twisty path, as I’m betting yours has been. That’s the thing about life–you simply never know with any certainty what it’s about to throw your way. Cultivating the ability to ride the waves through the good stuff as well as the bad is one of the best benefits of a regular yoga practice.
See you in class!
