Recipe: Raw cashew hot chocolate by Green Kitchen Stories. Pure indulgence! Essential oil diffuser blend: doTERRA’s holiday blend ‘Holiday Joy’. Christmas was definitely in the air! Self-care: total internet and phone disconnect over Chrismas. Heavenly! Random inspiration: Insight Timer. Amazing meditation aid! Feel good moment in December: breathing the cold, crisp winter air during a frosty morning walk back home in Germany over the Christmas break. Recently discovered foodie product: Kurkuma Latte by Sonnentor when you just do not have the time to make your turmeric latte from scratch. Super yummy alternative for the real thing. Read of the month: Paolo Cuelho’s ‘Manuscript found in Accra’. Loved it! Smart treat*: Ferrero Rocher. Nuts and chocolate… does it get any better?! Movement routine of the month: walks in nature and weekly Ashtanga classes. With the busyness of December this was most appopriate for my energy levels. Yoga inspiration: Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down. – Jigar Gor.
