Our lululemon STC welcomed a new location to call home in December and are enjoying the benefits of a refreshed space.
The beginning of a new year often signifies a fresh start, a new adventure for many people and while resolutions are sometimes a lofty endeavor, here are 4 ways to manifest a more mindful 2018 – with a little help from our friends at lululemon.
1. Find your breath
“You have to want to give yourself a tool. Look at your life and notice when you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and out of breath—almost like where you’re stuck. Make a choice to start noticing your breath.”
Most of the time we don’t even notice our breath, or how important it is to our sustainability.. Finding the right breath is an important tool to bring awareness to your sense of self, we recommend reading this article by Marika McKenzie on how to practice intentional breathing.
2. Make time to workout
The gym may not be for you and that’s OK because you can take this workout anywhere. It requires no equipment and, most importantly, can be practiced anywhere you choose. A fitness routine should empower you to embrace your body and accept it for what it is, whether it’s a quick stretch or an intensive cardio session, this workout will work for you.

3. Practice meditation
We can all get lost in daily routines and hectic schedules, but it’s important to centre oneself and one’s mind. We are what we practice and this article defines all the emotional skills you will achieve if you find a quiet space to take a few minutes out of your day to calm your mind through meditation.

4. Try something new
Whether you are challenging yourself to commit to that thrill-seeking adventure you’ve had your heart set on for years or deciding that you’ll take up the practice of yoga, this is your chance to try something new. No new endeavor is miniscule and whatever it is that you choose to begin, do it with intention and purpose.
