HTC: December 31, 2005

Greetings! Welcome to the 13th edition of the hip tranquil chick podcast: a girl’s guide for living a luxe lifestyle on and off the yoga mat. Back in the Pink Palace, Washington, DC.

Today’s podcast is on setting intentions in the new year, along with a soothing pose of the podcast that helps detox a body full of holiday sugars, and more festive podsafe music! View our shownotes at hiptranquilchick.blogspot.com.

To get 2006 started on the right foot, use the following 3-part hip tranquil chick practice:

1. Reflection

2. Intention

3. Action

  • set goals that are SMART: specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and time bound.
  • make a collage, list out actions, draw, paint your “ideal.”
  • put ideas on notecards.
  • reward progress–a few of my fave “rewards” include: hot baths complete with lush bath bombs and a tall glass of water with lemon to sip, browsing at a bookstore, walking my dog through rock creek park, a restorative yoga practice, eating a meal that nurtures my insides, dancing to Madonna’s latest tunes, sharing ideas over herbal tea with a good friend, a massage or pedicure, taking a new class—hip hop, knitting, sewing, ballet.

Pose of the Podcast: thread the needle
