monday musings

look for TranquiliT's fall collection online early october. my local seamstress is busily prepping the fall collection while my webmaster is putting all the bells and whistles on our updated website. yay for fall! local ladies, join us at greenfestival october 23 + 24 to pick up for favorite sale items from summer and newly launched fall items in person.

soooo excited to share that tranquility du jour's iPhone app is now available via iTunes. ooh la la!

tonight is our seasonal tranquilology teleclass. i can't wait to connect with each of you. yay fall!

before settling into bed last night, i picked up a friend's advance copy of his latest meditation book. i came across his top tips for healthy living and one was getting up and going to bed at the same time each day. really? my schedule has been so flexible over the years that i've taken advantage of it to negative degrees. creating into the wee hours or sleeping until 10am has surely taken its toll. thus, i set my alarm for 8am (must get my 8 hours of sleep!) and determined it was a good way to focus this fall. my internship is making it necessary and my piles of to-dos are too. thus, i'm trying to have computer off by 10 or 11pm and lights off no later than midnight.

do you have a set schedule? it sounds so rigid but i think my body is going to dig it. especially my energy levels!

wishing you a beautiful start to your week. don tall boots (rockin' my fave vegan ones now), sparkly scarves, layers, and hats. yay fall fashion!

can't wait to connect later tonight with sOMe of you and on wednesday with my tranquility project gals!

I am a lover of sleep! I can relate as my schedule is flexible, which means I could sleep late. I started an ayurveda course and have found that getting up and studying at 6:30 has been the best time. And I am seriously lovin' it!

Sat at my desk wearing a TranquilT piece. Had so many positive comments on it, Looking forward to seeing the new collection.

I also LOVE sleep (hubbie is amazed at my sleeping ability). Normally asleep by 23hrs and up at 6:30hrs but I am a morning person. I awake now, not to the alarm, but to my twins talking to each other which is a fab way to start the day.

Looking forward to listening to last nights teleclass on the return trip to work... bring on Autumn.

I turn into a pumkin after 9:30pm, so I'm usually in bed by 9, and I get up weekdays at 5:45 and weekends around 7. Yes, that's 9-10 hours per night. My doctor says I'm probably one of the most well-rested adults she knows! But I need the sleep to function properly- and kindly- nobody likes to hang out with a cranky whiner! -Grace @ Front Porch Yoga

ladies, merci for sharing your input on schedules. 6:30am is sooooo early. doing the 7am or 8am thing and still adjusting but loving it! yay for sleep AND productivity. xx

I've tried dabbling with getting up at the same time. Last week, I was pretty consistent with 6:30-7, including some exercise in the morning. This week however has been draining, and with a sick kitty needing medicine at midnight, I find my schedule to be off.
