On February 1, 2020, 108 Yoga and Self-Care Practices for Busy Mamas turned 1 years old.
I am so incredibly grateful I carved out time every night for three months after my kids were in bed to write it. I am grateful for my powerful yoga and meditation practice during those months to give me the courage to write it. I am grateful for the readers who took the time to learn more about self-care, and I am grateful to those who have yet to read it.
The birth of my book was a result of my intention to inspire other busy moms to live well by prioritizing self-care. My own experiences as a full-time working mom, yoga teacher and writer merged together to bring this book to life and into your hands.

In the first year of the book's life, I drove hundreds of miles with it. It came with me to bookstores, fitness centers and libraries when I’ve led Self-Care Practices for Busy People workshops. I’ve taken it into yoga classes to share practices from it with my yoga students. My book has connected me with people I would not have otherwise met if I didn’t write it.
I am proud of my book for receiving the following recognition in 2019:
As with babies, books need lots of nurturing attention, care and love. And to be able to share your creations with the world—children and books—is an incredible privilege.
Thank you, book. Thank you for being part of my journey. It is an honor to be your author. You continue to teach me that the effort to make a difference, to inspire other busy moms to live well and lead the next generation to wellness, is worth it.
Since then, I wrote another award-winning book, How to Stay Calm in Chaos: An Everyday Self-Care Guide, in 2020.
