It’s a bank holiday weekend, again! With Easter only two weeks ago, it feels so deliciously decadent to have another long weekend.
We’ve got our fingers crossed for at least a little sunshine over this weekend, and a chance to get outside and enjoy the warmer spring weather as summer gets even closer.
With it being a bank holiday this weekend, now could be a good time to try out a digital detox. This week on the blog we’re talking about what a digital detox is, and how to go about starting one. It might sound incredibly rebellious to do something like switch off your mobile, or just not be contactable for a few hours - but it can be incredibly liberating. Did you know that the average person spends 2.4 hours per day on their smartphone? When you add in other digital gadgets such as tablets, laptops and TV screens, it soon adds up to a large chunk of the 24 hours we get each day. Why not have a go at cutting back over the bank holiday and see how you feel?

Shel Silverstein is my childhood hero. I would go to the library to xerox the poems with my lunch money, so that I could read them to my little sisters and mom, who was learning English. This one is my favorite and gave me perspective at a young age. So, for people like us, in places like this for #greatpoetryreadingday I'll be reading this 🌳🌹🌳🌹🌳 #shelsilverstein#theoakandtherose#lifelessons
It's truly remarkable to watch the growth in artistry & technique of our Advanced dancers💜While they receive the highest awards at competitions, the true rewards are intrinsic and come from hard work & commitment combined with passion. Contemporary Line group Ascension last night was awarded ELITE GOLD & 1st place with a special judges award for lovely technique "clean & crisp". However, even without the awards, we are proud of them because each dancer is special & they came together as a TEAM👊🏼Enjoy these opportunities for the experience and cherish the journey together😊We do! Thank you for this magnificent piece of art @lindsaynelko #teamwork#lifelessons#experience#sssod
When the ocean calls, you must go 🌊
I've been thinking a lot about what yoga means to me and how it's changed my life. I wrote a new blog post https://flourishandbloomsite.wordpress.com/2017/04/28/feel-it-to-heal-it/ that talks about my journey.
Spontaneous solo beach trips are a must. I've worked hard the last several days with teaching and networking. It's nice to have quite/alone time, truly for me. Tomorrow I'm seeing one of my favorite artists perform in Philly with some of my favorite people. Yoga opportunities are on the rise for me. I taught a kids class for the first time yesterday and they LOVED it. I was so nervous because I'm so used to yoga being so serious- how was I going to let go of control and be playful? But I did, and it was the best. You learn something you need in every class you go to- whether you're a teacher or student. ⭐️ Life is good. I'm inviting change.
Don't make change too complicated, just begin! Don't try to envision the entire journey, just keep taking steps! You may get it right, you may get it wrong, and that's ok! U-turns are completely acceptable! You might come face to face with a dead end street. You won't feel ready for it. Even still ... pause, re-adjust, and make a turn! There may be bumpy roads ahead that will require you to slow down and adjust your pace at times, but keep going, you'll be just fine! You may encounter detours and road closures that will shunt you down a different path without warning. They'll leave you feeling lost & unsure, as you travel down an unfamiliar road. But if you keep taking steps ... slow ... steady ... persistent steps ... You'll find your road! Promise! Cross my heart! Much Love! XO ❤️😘#change#slow#steady#steps

I was feeling self conscious when my friend asked if she could take pictures of me, then I remembered it's ok not to be perfect. All we can do is strive to be a better version of the person we were yesterday. ✌
