2. Use Motivate Oil

A blend of mint and citrus oil. The ‘Encouraging Blend’ by doTERRA will help you to replace negative emotions like guilt and pessimism with confidence and courage. Diffuse 4 drops throughout the day. Apply one drop on the bottom of your feet with a ¼ tsp of coconut oil to cover the surface area of the feet – three times per day!

[As a member of our 889 commUNITY watch my ‘how-to’ video for using the Motivate Oil here]

3. Move Your Body

Choose two classes that you will attend each week where you move your body. If you’d like to deepen your practice with us, choose one of over 85 classes per week. If you don’t live in Toronto, go to your favourite place for moving your body! Put these classes in your calendar as a meeting with yourself. Honour them as you honour a very important meeting. These classes will strengthen your physical body and rinse your emotional body (i.e. anger, impatience, jealousy, fear, perfectionism). Release these feelings that do not serve you by rinsing them out. We love 889 Vinyasa Flow All (or Levels 1 or 2/3) classes for this. If you’re new to yoga + pilates, come to Yoga Basics and Pilates Basics at 889 to get started.

4. Breathe

Reorganize your energy by moving your breath through your body. Here’s a 4-minute breathing exercise. Try doing this once per day – or more! It’s only 4 minutes and it will make a HUGE difference.




5. Practice Gratitude & Send Love Beams

Reverse the flow of negative thought patterns. Use this worksheet each morning and each evening. It will take a few minutes to complete. The simplest of mindful tasks can be life-changing. Print it out so you can have it ready at your bedside to make it easy for yourself to stay committed.

We’d love to know how to worksheets are going. Feel free to share in the comments below.


Join us, Christine & Emily, for our New Moon Intention Setting class on January 27th. This day marks the first New Moon of 2017, bringing us a new cycle where we can plant seeds for a brighter, more compassionate, more abundant, more cooperative future.  In the darkest night on the eve of the New Moon we will gather together to relax and restore, and set intentions for the beginning of 2017. This will be a sacred evening of restorative yoga, breathwork, angel cards, crystals, Essential Oils, sound bowls, and intention setting. Together we will set personal intentions and release them to the Universe, our guides and angels, to help them unfold for the highest good; in perfect divine timing.
