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 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?

Toeing the line of balance with jammed piggies

This week, I jammed 3 toes. Just in time for dance camp . Yes, on my feet all day, dancing, for a week.

That’s the beauty of life though (moderate sarcasm). It always gives you the opportunity to toe the line (see what I did there 😜) of balance between self care and commitments.

We all have our own things that need nurturing, but the world doesn’t stop. So you have to work it in.

In my particular case, I will be armed with Rescue Remedy and Aches & Pains salve. Also, when the kids take a break, so will I, meaning I will actually sit down with them. Lastly, I will let them know my plan because kids make REALLY good accountability partners 😂

What are you nurturing today? How can I support you?

Leveraging my 2 hours of willpower

I have gotten into a really bad habit.

Did you know that the first couple of hours of your day is when you have the most willpower and clarity?

Despite knowing that, I’ve let myself fall into the bad habit of checking emails and messages first thing in the morning. This kills my productivity, creativity, and leaves me feeling scattered and unaccomplished.

Through some gentle encouragement from a program that I’m participating in now, I’ve decided to reclaim my good habit of morning goal cards.

Goal cards are single handedly one of the most powerful tools I use. You write your goal or mindset shift on the card as if it has already occurred, and read it every morning.

This is actually how we found our family car that I still love! Reading my goal card every morning about finding the perfect car for my family that I could easily afford magically led me to it. Seriously, it was magic!

I missed a turn on a route that I took all of the time, which led me a different way where I ended up passing the car, and it immediately caught my eye. I knew that I had better not ignore this coincidence, and stopped to look at it. When I met the person selling the car, he turned out to be an old friend of my husband, and sold it to us for the auction rate! Magic!

Even knowing how powerfully effective something is for you, you can still fall off track. It happens to all of us. If you want support to get back on track to your goals, feel free to reach out. We can do a quick call to get some clarity. I’m doing it for me too 😘
