I recently did a takeover on Sweetgreen’s Insta-Stories to share mindful tips to jumpstart your day. I absolutely love this topic, so I wanted to piggyback off of that to share more insight into why I do what I do every morning! I hope you can apply it to your own life and see how it truly benefits you. So, let’s cut to it. Do’s & Don’ts to Mindfully Jumpstart Your Day DON’T Look at Your Phone Right When You Wake Up Your first instinct when you wake up is to reach for your phone. RESIST. Just purchase an alarm clock or use a Misfit or Fitbit watch that sends a gentle buzz to your wrist. Starting off your day with incoming notifications and emails you collected overnight is not an empowering way to get moving. Although, we are all a little addicted to social media, we can wait jusssst a little longer to play catch up. Trust me. It has drastically improved my productivity in the morning.

Why hello there, New Yorkers! I’m so stoked to be hosting a FULL MOON GATHERING in a few short weeks! This has been on my wish list since I experienced my very first full moon ceremony back in Nicaragua. It was such a mystical experience, and I wanted to bring some of the magic into my own little event! Spots are limited, so snag a ticket here.
Hi my little loves! And hello there new readers! Thanks to a repost from @liketoknow.it, I’m experiencing a growth spike, and I have to say it feels amazing to have my content reach an even wider audience now.

Has it seriously already been 3 years since I launched Om & The City? I cannot imagine life without this space, and I feel very blessed to have started blogging back when I did, because it helped me cope with so much. Om & The City started out as a creative avenue for me to share my wellness knowledge with the small group I acquired through guest blogging for Your Zen Life. Flash forward 3 years, and it has evolved into a little business, but with the same integrity as it did when I first started.

Thinking back two years, 2015 was the year of transformation – the year I made big changes in my life, which set my path into motion. 2016 has been all about the aftermath of that transformation – planting the seeds and building out the foundation. Now, this bright & shiny new year – 2017 – is firmly focused on taking action. This will be a pivotal year, I can feel it!
All photos by Victoria Jane Photography You remember how I said the winter bums me out? It’s because I feel trapped inside all season – I really love exercising and practicing yoga outdoors, but the bone-chilling windy weather usually keeps me locked in. 🙅🏻 Well, you know what, I’ve decided come 2017 I’m done hibernating. I live in New York City where it’s cold more often than it is hot, so I just need to embrace it! And part of embracing the cold is finding the right apparel that moves with you.
