Deep Level Self Care Series: Becoming The Master Of Your Emotions (Activity included in post)
This week’s topic is another powerful lesson I learned in my life where without it, nothing would have changed. I would still be in victim mode, still be in a constant state of stress, still battling health issues.
Learning how to experience difficult emotions and move through them without letting them take over my whole life experience was what helped me heal from years of being in a horrible relationship, and be able to control my stress levels and stop my panic attacks.
One of the most empowering things I learned through this is that every person is different and every person needs to figure out what works for them.
It’s very similar to eating a healthy diet, every person's body is different and they have different nutritional needs to help them create health.
What works for me to control stress might not work for others and that goes for anxiety, sadness,...
(Exercise Included in this post) Originally the topic of this post was, Eating Real Food, sounds so silly, right?
I have to tell you though, the next time you go to the grocery store tell me how much “real’ food is there.
The answer is, not a lot
That is if you define real food as something that comes from the earth or a food that has 5 or less ingredients…real ingredients.
For real, the next time you go, pay attention to everything around you. There is not a lot of real whole healthy food.
When someone asks me the way to get healthy and lose weight, I just say, Eat Real Whole Food. I also eat plant-based but I leave that for another post. For now, I want you to just agree to focus on this for your health.
Most people think it can’t be that simple. Well, putting any other serious health issues aside that some people might be struggling with, yes, it is that simple.
It’s just not easy to do. The food industry makes it...
Do you always find yourself saying " Why does this always happen to me?"
Then this blog post is for you!
Whenever I talk about what I call re-framing, turning your setbacks into success, I always label it as one of the most transformational lessons of my life.
The reason I say this is because I spent so many years in victim mode. What I would give to get some of that time back.
I was a victim, so it was hard for me to understand why I shouldn’t act like one. It kept me small, it kept me safe. Safe is the keyword. This is why so many of us stay in victim mode instead of taking responsibility for ourselves.
So what is victim mode? It's when we are a victim of some sort of mistreatment and we make excuses for ourselves to stay there by saying things like. Why does this always happen to me? I have the worst luck. Why do I always get treated this way?
This is where you can make the shift. Instead of asking why is this happening to me, you start asking,
Deep Level Self Care Series: Declutter Your Space To Create Flow
Some of you might think that I’m nuts talking about decluttering around the holidays but hear me out. I have a little bit of a different approach than others when it comes to decluttering space.
First, it’s not just physical space, I’ll explain in a second.
Secondly, I love the saying, baby steps lead to big changes.
Before I get into this practice, let me explain what you can expect from any type of decluttering.
When we declutter, we create space and flow in a space. This helps us reduce stress and anxiety and changes the energy of the space to more of a positive which then raises your energy. When we create this space, we also make room for new things in our life.
So if you’re looking to manifest something into your life think about where you need to create space for that thing or situation.
I’m going to start with...
Deep Level Self Care Series: Declutter The Mind
So those of you who have worked with me know that I’m a huge fan of decluttering but not in the sense that most would think.
It’s not just about decluttering the space, but I have to say this is part of it. It goes much much bigger than this though.
Decluttering is about creating space, this reduces stress and anxiety and creates more flow in your life. Whenever and wherever you reduce clutter, you reduce friction. When you reduce friction you create flow, peace, and space to breathe.
Decluttering can be magical if you're like me and tend to do too much and get stressed and anxious easily.
It helps you identify what is important and essential in your life. The things you have to do or have and the things you really want to do and have and ditch the rest.
Can you feel the space this creates just talking about it?
That's why it feels so good when you declutter a closet, for me, It can make...
