Every year, summer blind sides me with it. Then next thing I know it’s time for fall activities again.
Busy is not ideal. It keeps you in fight or flight mode, which leads to stress, anxiety, depression, adrenal fatigue, and all kinds of subsequent health problems.
The first step is awareness, so you can create boundaries around your time. I, for instance, will go back to not scheduling meetings during family time. Our family time tends to be early in the day since we homeschool, so it’s easy to break this boundary. I have to be strong, but flexible, and forgiving of myself.
Do you feel like you’re “to do” list is getting longer, even though you’re busy all the time?
We’re all guilty from time to time, but if we become aware that we’re doing it, then we can stop it.
When you are constantly saying or feeling like “I should be doing …” you create stress and overwhelm in your body, which over time will lead to anxiety or depression.
A great way to stop shoulding all over yourself is to have a plan. Create time strategies by prioritizing your values, so you feel like you should be doing exactly what you’re doing.
I can tell you that it’s a lifesaver, and something that someone gifted me when I was in tears from overwhelm. So, I decided to pay it forward. You can get the tools free at www.imperfectlyamazing.comalong with a free meditation to get you centered before you get started.
I continually use these videos to get some movement time, and to open up the areas of my life, even with kid and dog underfoot.
Today, I am tapping into creativity. Creativity sounds like one of those things you only need when you’re going to create a work of art, or even more ambitiously, dare attempt a Pinterest project. Yet, it helps with so much more. It gives you a new way of looking at things, so you can creatively solve your problems. Suddenly the answers becomes clear.
Today’s reveal: As I create boundaries, I gain respect.
Do you know what part of your body to move to tap into your creativity?
Ask me about it this Saturday 8/17 at 10:30am at Raleigh ACT when I talk about how to strategically move your body to improve your life. I would love to see you ❤
The scientific explanation is that the instinctual messages you receive can be subconscious signals of information you haven’t cognitively processed yet. It can also be the hundreds of millions of nerve endings that connect the brain and the gut.
Either way, even science is saying it’s time to start listening.
A couple of months ago, I kept getting a feeling that I should visit my NY family in August. I was definitely (past) due for a visit, but it kept resurfacing to go in August. Here we are at the beginning of August, and I received a call over the weekend with bad news about the health of a family member.
My trip is already scheduled. There is no way I’m going to ignore that!
Sometimes, it’s hard to hear the messages though. We have to clear out the other noises, and practice self-trust. I can support you when you’re ready to start moving in this direction, and it’s really not that difficult.
By the way, the picture is of mint, which is calming and soothing for the gut 😉
The group at Actor’s Training Ground (minus 1). We finished up Movement for the Actor last night.
Most of the people that participate in this class have no dance experience. They really stretch their comfort zones, which feels challenging in the moment, but by the end they are victorious and accomplished.
You have to be willing to stretch to grow! Congratulations to another amazing group!
I had some doubts and blocks come to the surface late last week, and over the weekend, as I am pushing myself to my next level in a program.
This morning, I used my own movement program with reflective journaling to get to the root of the subconscious doubts, and…. it worked. Now I am addressing my doubts head on. I’m so glad to have this resource. Feel free to ask me about it if you want to see if it’s right for you.
Steeping a cup of Happy Mama tea, one of the Kalusion tea blends. This blend contains oatstraw, which calms the nerves. It’s been said that everyone living in modern society should have oatstraw in their life. It also contains herbs for hormone balance and energy.
Not to mention, I actually enjoy it. Check it out at the BouTEAque
