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!
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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?
