I am Carrie-Anne Moss and I warmly welcome you to Annapurna Living! I hope this will become the place where you feel nourished, uplifted, and inspired. Annapurna Living is not just something I want to do, but something I feel called to do. I know deep down in my soul it is needed—for you, for me, for all of us.
We all know the desire, expectation, or need to nurture our children, our partner, or our career—yet in the process, we often neglect to nourish ourselves. Here at Annapurna Living I will share inspiration to help keep your mind, heart, and spirit full and fed. I will show you that the loving care and feeding of your body and soul can be achieved in the most simple and beautiful of ways.
Set an intention
I created this space for those of us looking for a community of soulful women devoted to living an intentional life. I want to show what’s possible for us and help you discover what it means to be fiercely and gracefully you. One thing I invite you to do with me each week is to set an intention for the days ahead. This practice lays a foundation for our desires and values. It’s a way to stay grounded and make aligned choices to nourish us, our lives, and others close to us.
In November, the temperature in L.A. begins to dip. The cool nights beg for chats beside the fire and I crave the smells and tastes of the season. It’s also a month full of gatherings and longer-than-usual grocery lists as we begin to prepare for the upcoming celebrations. It’s a month where we open the doors to our hearts and homes even wider and it can be so easy to forget to fill ourselves up with the nourishment we need.
This week I will honor the needs of my body. I will eat foods that comfort me and foods that heal me. I will create space for Kundalini yoga because it opens my heart, gets me breathing, and allows me to live with less chatter in my head. Creating this intention now helps to guide my days—I can plan ahead, I can stay present, I can remember that taking care of myself keeps me healthy and able to care for others.
I invite you to set an intention for the week. Bring attention to what is important to you. What is your body craving? What does your spirit cry out for? Maybe this means drinking more water or allowing yourself to stretch after a run. Maybe you need to say yes to a friend’s offer to babysit so you can have a long overdue date with your loved one. Maybe this simply means taking a nap. Pick one thing you know will make a difference in your everyday that you can do without feeling overwhelmed. Give yourself permission to be nourished. And if you do? Consider sharing an element of your experience on Instagram using the hashtag #annapurnaliving to connect with others giving themselves permission, too.
