SEASON OF CHANGE

Spring is finally here in NYC, season of transition. An impassioned full moon just passed this Sunday, also bringing to light things that need to be shed so new seeds have room to bud and bloom. Transitions are a wonderful time to evaluate your priorities and how you spend your time.

 

PRACTICE

My private practice, which I opened in January, is growing! While this is a truly thrilling change, the 1,440 minutes in the day that each and every one of us have aren’t expanding any time soon. As my focus shifts more steadily to patient care and cultivating my practice, I am evaluating my time and finding ways to use it more wisely (time audit!). I am also working on folding more intentional learning into my life. 

Starting with my next post, only a small blurb of the weekly Year of Yes blog post will be found on my Instagram page (to pique your curiosity!). The full posting, links and all, will always be here. You can also follow my doctor page on Facebook, where this blog updates weekly!

 

AWAY

There will be no post next week - I’ll be at the national Academic Consortium for Integrative Medicine & Health Member's Meeting and International Congress in Baltimore, Maryland. 

 

FRIDAY

Upon returning, THE YEAR OF YES is switching to FRIDAYS (beginning 5/18).

 

YOU

During this season of change, I urge you to take stock of your life as well. What are your values and priorities? What is essential to you? What are some things you need to let go? How do you plan to do that? The more we learn what is meaningful to us, and find ways to make space for these activities (or non-activities), the richer and more vibrant our lives become. 

Comment below and let me know if you are in the process of any changes, transitions or transformations and how it is going for you! 💚🌺
