Do you know what part of your body to move to tap into creativity?

Me dancing with………. ummmm, me

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 ❤

Do you listen to your gut?

Do you listen to your gut?

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 😉

You have to be willing to stretch to grow

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!

Doubts don’t have to derail you!

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.

Move your body to clear your mind

Movement is more than exercise.

Sure, you will receive the physical benefits: cardiovascular, strengthening, flexibility, agility, etc.

However, movement is so much more than that. You move your body to clear your mind. You also move your body to clear your life.

Did you know if you are feeling unstable, not grounded, or struggling with money you can focus on moving your feet and legs to open up this area of your life?

Did you also know that I have a video series that will guide you through a movement experience of your entire body and life?

It’s amazing what you can accomplish so simply

Calming my nerves so I can be a Happy Mama

I’m a happy mama

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

Not the great friends you thought they were

Please don’t tp my house!

I’m about to share a wildly unpopular thought about coffee and alcohol.

64% of Americans drink coffee every day, and 66% have at least 4 alcoholic drinks per week.

We use coffee to wake up and get going. We use wine to wind down from a long day. Yet this daily use is creating habits, and it’s causing our bodies to be dependent on something outside of us to function. This is considered self-medicating.

The problem is that the very thing we are using it for (usually anxiety or depression symptoms) is what it actually creates more of.

You don’t need coffee to kick start your brain and body, you don’t need wine to relax. You can feel amazing without it!

You don’t have to be busy to be successful

I feel like a total hypocrite right now.

I’m about to tell you that busy is not something to strive for. It keeps you in fight or flight, which creates anxiety and health problems.

Yet, I am wrapping up a very busy few weeks (see the bags under my eyes).

Busy happens to the best of us 😳, however, if you stay in tune with yourself and your schedule, you can manage it so it doesn’t take over.

In my case, I was scheduled well in advance, and anticipated it’s arrival, so I scheduled some recovery time.

How are you keeping busy at bay?

Anxiety is not the inheritance we are hoping for

Anxiety is something we pass down.

Not the inheritance we were looking for, but there it is. 
4.4 million children are diagnosed with anxiety.

We were shown how to react to stressful situations from our parents, we model it, and pass it on. Every time we stress out about money, or traffic, or being late, etc., we are teaching how to react with stress.

If we don’t want to teach this, we have to unlearn it for ourselves, so we can model it for our children.

Let’s start a plan for unlearning!
