Summer is a celebration for many. Something about the way the North Pole is at its maximum tilt toward the sun, allowing the sun to reach its highest point in the sky for the year, which allows more light to reach our planet, making many of us feel festive, alive, hopeful and happy.

"How do you feel?" asked my teacher B, after I concluded my final one-hour practice teaching to become a yoga instructor. I was overwhelmed with gratitude for all that I had accomplished during the past 16 months of YTT 200 training at Lourdes Institute of Wholistic Studies in Camden, NJ.

It can be hard to find time to exercise when you have kids. However, when you become a mom it's more important than ever to take care of your body—and that means finding time to exercise.

Recently, my husband, while picking up the newspaper that sat outside our door, untouched for the entire day, asked me why I still subscribe to the print version. "Isn't so much easier just to read it on the computer, especially since sometimes you miss a day?" he asked.
Apologies to all the trees and ink and eco-conscious among us, but I'm a holdout for the real thing.
Maybe it's not so bad. Maybe I'm doing my eyes a favor.
