Happy #WorldMeditationDay! Alright, let’s get to it. I am sharing a lot of information with…
I would love to invite you to try something new this week. Setting daily intentions. I invite my yoga students to do it, and I suggested it to my hubby yesterday morning.
When you wake up tomorrow morning, set an intention for your day, first thing.
I intend to ______ today.
Here are some good ones to get you started.
I intend to…
Hot out of the oven, my latest meditation on Insight Timer.
Enjoy this guided mediation for compassion, self-love and self-care. You have everything inside of you that you need to live a rich life full of joy and abundance. So, go ahead and find a quiet spot, grab your earphones, get comfortable whether sitting or lying down, close your eyes and press play. ?
Happy Monday! I am thrilled to share my latest SELF-CARE Infographic with you! My prescription is 30-60 minutes a day of self-care activities.
This is all part of my new talk coming out in 2020 called The Diamond Edge: How To Get What You Want While Giving Yourself What You Need
If you enjoy it, please feel free to share it with someone who needs the reminder to care for themselves.
Have a wonderful Monday, and an early Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!
Happy International Self-Care Day!
And I couldn’t think of a better day to discuss mindfulness than on this day. After all, mindfulness (a form of meditation), is indeed a form self-care.
Mindfulness has almost become THE word of 2019. But what is it, and does it work?
Well it does, and as a yoga instructor and life coach, this morning I shared some mindfulness exercises you can teach your children to help them feel calm when they feel stressed or anxious. What we teach our kids now, become their tools for life.
Simply put, mindfulness is bringing your awareness and breath and attention to the present moment and your surroundings, allowing thoughts to come and pass without judgement.
Growing up, every time I’d leave the house for an exam, and even today, among many other things, my mom would always tell me, “Don’t forget to breathe!” Probably because during exam days, I was usually on the verge of a breakdown and too stressed out to relax and take a deep breath. Back in the day, I used to laugh it off, because honestly it felt like a joke. I’d roll my eyes as it sounded so unbelievably clichéd.
However, one day, while sitting down during my Introduction to Political Science exam, I actually followed her supposedly funny and mainstream advice and set out time for “breathing.” Every once in a while during the exam, I would put my pen down and follow a systematic breathe-in-breathe-out pattern. While a few students around me did look at me in a funny way, I continued with my breathing exercise, so I could go home and tell my mom how weird and impractical her advice was.
WE’VE HEARD OF FOMO, BUT WHAT IS JOMO? IT’S THE JOY (NOT THE FEAR) OF MISSING OUT AND MANY ARE SAYING JOMO IS THE NEW FOMO!
Before Snapchat and Instagram, we had to use our imaginations to dream up all the cool things our friends were out doing. Or better yet, we didn’t even know we weren’t invited to the party! But now, thanks to social media, we actually have the cold hard proof of the incredible lives people are living (or so it looks that way), hence giving us FOMO. Now we actually get to SEE what we are missing out on – and that can feel pretty shitty for kids AND adults alike.
The average teenager spends around six hours a day refreshing their social media feeds and the average adult spends about four.
YUP, LET THAT SOAK IN. OR SINK IN. WHAT’S THE CORRECT EXPRESSION?
The fabulous times people are having is being shoved down our throats… by ourselves.
Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference.
In a FIXED MINDSET, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong.
In a GROWTH MINDSET, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.
I help busy women (like you!) prioritize self-care so you can experience less stress, more calm and greater joy every day!
