Year End Reflection by Stephanie
Looking to reflect on the year and seed intentions for 2018?
If so, get cozy and carve out some time to do this 3 part year end reflection practice: Connect, Reflect and Redirect...
First, find a place that nurtures you. It could be sitting up in your bed or at a local coffee shop. Put your phones on "DND" = do not disturb. Take 10-20 breaths and center yourself.
Next, sit quietly and reflect on the past year in the key areas of your life such as: health, relationship, career, life purpose, overall well-being.
As it relates to these areas, ask yourself questions such as:
What am I proud of?
What have I learned?
What am I grateful for?
What was challenging for me?
Where are my growth opportunities?
Write down anything and everything that comes to mind, as it comes. No judgment.
Based on your replies above, consider what you desire in 2018 in each of these areas.
Ask yourself questions such as:
What do I want more of?
What do I want to improve and or change?
What do I want to let go of?
What support will I need?
Write down your replies. Choose one area you would like to focus on starting in January.
As the year progresses, revisit your notes and gradually adjust as needed. Keep in mind that sometimes priorities change and that too is part of life...growth. I support you!
Everything you need to know in order to Give Mom Sanctuary
Feeling lost on how to choose? You are not alone.
FAQ's to know so you can give MOM the perfect gift of spa...pampering...Sanctuary...
What exactly is it that I am giving when I give a gift certificate?
When you purchase a gift certificate from Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary, you are purchasing credit to be used toward any of our services, packages, or series.
For example, a dollar amount lets her choose for herself. Or, you may prefer to give her a specific Sanctuary Service, Package, or Series. When you purchase a Series (the more you buy, the more you save) it's a gift that lasts all year!
What amount should I give?
That's up to you! We are pretty sure Mom is going to love any amount that gets her closer to her relaxing massage or rejuvenating facial. To give you an idea, our basic one hour massage or facial is $105.
Others choose to purchase an amount that matches the package they intend for Mom to receive.
Here is a brief rundown of our most popular packages for Mom:

How do I purchase? Can I purchase online?
Gift certificates can be purchased online or in person at the Sanctuary. If you have any questions call us at 914.337.9356.
Purchasing online is simple. Choose to give a specific service, package, or series. Or, choose a custom dollar amount to let Mom decide how to spend it at Bronxville Wellness Sanctuary.
You may also choose the card design, and the message that will be sent with the card.
Online gift certificates can be emailed to your recipient, or printed and taken with you instantly upon purchase. This flexibility makes them a great choice for last minute gifts. They can also be mailed through traditional mail. The choice is yours based on your location and timing.

Gratitude Practice, by Stephanie
Gratitude isn't something to celebrate only on Thanksgiving.
For many of us, it's how we live, or strive to live.
Being grateful is being joyful! Easy, no?
So, I decided to come up with a simple game to help keep me on the path of gratitude.
As I speak about in my book, Reclaiming JOY, how we are being (grateful or not, loving or not...)
determines the quality of our doing...and this is how we experience life. It's a big deal!!!
Here's the game:
1. Grab paper and pen (or your cell phone).
2. Set a timer for 5 minutes.
3. Write down as many kind words as possible about yourself that begin with theletter of your first name. (I.e. Stephanie: Still, Silly, Self-Loving). The key is to write words you "know" you are...and even more importantly, write words you wish to become.
4. For the rest of the year, look at this every morning and night. Add to it!
Extra Credit: Share and play this game with a spouse, partner, child, friend, co-worker...etc.
We have a variety of specialists and people who offer a wonderful perspective on topics that relate to our services and clients' needs.
