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!

Are you ready to create your masterpiece?

Time for another show!

It’s always amazing to watch the group start with nothing but a script on Monday, and perform an entire show including singing and dancing by Friday.

Yet their process for creating a show is essentially the same as the process for manifesting anything in your life.

1. Be open to learning
Sometimes step 1 is the most challenging. We can get caught up in our own perceived expertise, or we struggle with resistance. Resistance is a side effect of fear, and the fear of success is often greater than the fear of failure.

2. Repeat
Lather, rinse, repeat 😂 Practice what you have learned until it becomes second nature. Anything you do regularly becomes a habit.

3. Receive
You are allowed to receive good things and results. As a matter of fact, you deserve it. We all do, so it doesn’t mean you are full of yourself when you receive. Get comfortable with positive energy moving in your direction, and you will attract more.

Easy as 1, 2, 3! Yet, theory is often simpler than implementation. It takes finding the right motivation, accountability, and support.

If you’re at a place where you want to manifest great things for your health & harmony, let’s have a clarity huddle call – free and just for you ❤

It’s not surprising there’s daily stress and anxiety!

8 out of 10 people experience daily stress.

Anxiety Disorder is the most prevalent mental health issue with 40 million Americans experiencing it.

It’s really not surprising why, but it may surprise you that all of this stress and anxiety is causing inflammation in your body, which is causing digestive problems, autoimmune issues, cancer, and many other health issues.

It’s critical to your health to address your stress and anxiety.

When functional is where the pain is

What does depression look like to you?

300 million people around the world struggle with depression, and 3.5 million Americans experience functional depression.

Functional depression is not debilitating. You carry on with your everyday life, but it may feel like you’re under a cloud. You can see the opportunities for joy, but not feel them.

When I was in my early 20’s, I lost 2 cousins within a year of each other. It was so hard for me, and I ended up with functional depression for awhile. I remember how heavy my feet felt. Whenever I walked, even across a room, they were weighted. The people that surrounded me didn’t get it, so they just got mad at me for not getting over it.

Then one day, walking the same path that I always walked, my feet weren’t so heavy anymore! They got lighter and lighter each day until I felt like me again.

Simple food and lifestyle tweaks can help enormously with mental health symptoms. I’ve seen it in myself, and I’ve had the honor to help others.

You absolutely deserve to love your life! If you are struggling, please feel free to reach out to me, or anyone that will support you.

The Simple Complexity of Being You

We’re so complex and simple at the same time.

If something is out of balance, you have to look at the entire picture – foods, products, sleep, quality of movement, emotions, lifestyle, mindset, etc. There’s a whole tapestry that makes us up. Sometimes it’s even the pull of the planets.

Recently, we had a full moon and Mercury in retrograde, which can mess with your sleep or leave you feeling a little wonky.

Yet when you explore all of the parts of your tapestry, you create an awareness and intuition that allows you to be the master of your health. Suddenly the answers become simple, and you’re not overwhelmed.

Here’s to simplicity!

You may as well love it

When i have seasons in my life of longer work hours, such as this week, it gets me thinking.

If you work full time, you spend half of your awake time at work.

This is a major reason to do what you love, to do it in a supportive environment, and with non-toxic people.

I am feeling pretty grateful this morning to have this. Not only is my work family fantastic, but my nuclear family is involved. They have all been here this week, even Bo made an appearance 🐶

Tea is so good for me

My essentials everyday.

Since I had just recovered from a nasty virus before beginning a busy week, I have been steeping a mug of Get Well tea every morning to keep my immune system strong.

Also, it contains mullein, which supports the throat. Since I’m teaching, I’m doing a lot of talking, and can use that support as well.

Last night, I comforted myself and prepped for bed with a soothing cup of 101 Sheep. This morning I noticed my daughter got in on the action with her own mug to go 😀

I seriously don’t know what I’d do without these teas.

Are you up for a challenge?

The blank canvas ready for magic 💃

Yesterday one of the students I’ve worked with for a few years told me “you’re the best choreographer I’ve ever worked with because you always challenge me”.

First of all, aaaaahhhhh thanks. Secondly, it got me thinking, I do love to challenge people. Whether it be kids learning a dance, adults learning to move to improve their physical and emotional health, or in my coaching sessions. If you’re challenged you’re growing.

I know being challenged can sound scary, but the reward is always greater. You get to reveal to yourself the extraordinary and amazing things that you are capable of.

Are you ready to be challenged?
