10 Silent Warning Signs You Are Stressed

Have you been suffering from chronic fatigue lately? Find yourself tossing and turning at night unable to shut off your brain? Feeling at a low… emotionally, physically or spiritually? Have you lost your appetite? Or are you binge eating from stress or boredom? Been looking for your mojo and can’t seem to find it anywhere?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Many women today are running on empty. November and December are tough months – that low-energy feeling that can accompany limited amount of daylight hours just kinda creeps up on you.

21 Ways To Spring Clean Your Mind, Body and Life

Whenever March rolls around (my husband’s birthday), and then into April (my birthday this weekend), I always know it’s time for me to take stock of my life. It’s the time I start sweeping out the cobwebs; literally and figuratively. Winter’s snow melts away, and all the things you have been ignoring in your life, start to present themselves again. Aaah, I forgot about you! Spring is a great time to deal with these things head-on.  And that’s not a bad thing– spring is about rebirth, renewal, regeneration.

If you’re like most of the population who have been walking around not living at your optimum, there’s no better time than now, springtime, to internally and externally cleanse and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit. With the fast-paced society we live in, we even eat fast too – fast food, canned foods, processed foods. Why? It’s easy and quick. Why buy fresh corn on the cob and waste time boiling it, when you can just pop open a can of corn and serve it no time? Right? Wrong! And I will tell you, that although you may not see immediate results in treating your mind and body well, the long term results are astounding.

What dust-balls are lurking in the corner in your life?? Time to clean up, ladies!

Motivation Monday Announcements!

Happy Motivation Monday! Also, Happy World Kindness Day!

I am coming off an empowering weekend doing my next level YogaFit teacher certification.

A highlight from Saturday: learning how to replace negative thoughts, emotions and judgements in our OWN lives with positive ones so we can radiate it outwards to our yoga students when they get on their mats in class and then into the world.

A highlight from Sunday: learning the art of surrendering to the universe and having faith that what is meant for us will happen at the right moment (ishwara pranidhana), making the best out of our situation and accepting what is and the concept of being present and in the moment (santosha), the willingness to be disciplined and committed (tapas), letting go of expectation and competition (stay and astray).

Anxiety in Kids, Teens and Us

Let’s consider this kind of a Wordless Wednesday. 😉

This past Monday night, I, with great guilt, missed an event that I go to yearly called Choices. It’s a beautiful gathering of 700 women who come together in one room to eat and drink and celebrate our community, and listen to an inspirational female speaker who has made some tough choices in her life. Hence, the name of the event Choices. I have chaired Choices in the past, and I fully support everything CJA related, but our school sent us this flyer a few weeks ago.

And I made the choice to put my family first Monday night.
