Woookay. Events are pretty and all but today I want to focus on life and progress. Yesterday, a long time friend of mine reached out to me ( we barely talk but when we do it's like time never slipped, those are awesome friendships btw) She was telling me how she felt so drained, depression was setting in, and she's been giving and giving as a mother, wife, friend and a full time professional, but never has time for herself. I knew that story all too well. I walked and talked the same challenges for 15 years!! 😩 Anyway, I shared with her, as I am sharing with you all today the steps I took to rebuild my mental clarity, and livelihood again.
1) MEDITATION, ENERGY HEALING AND POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS: are so so important. We spend our days being wrapped up in our responsibilities we don't really LIVE in the present. I'm always thinking ahead, thinking of issues and how we can solve them, I forget to just be present in the MOMENT. I spend about 10 mins repeating things that I am thankful for. From my loving husband, my awesome SK team, to even my teenagers who drives me nuts sometimes. I am thankful for an amazing neighbor that baked us Rice Krispies yesterday! I couldn't imagine a thing that we can't be thankful for! And then I focus on my goals and what I intend for each one. It helps me stay focused and I don't veer off with my ADD and digress.
2) EXERCISE: its embarrassing to admit that I have only been the gym < 10x's my whole life. This past 45 days I made it a habit to work out ( just 15 mins a day with Betty Rocker @makefatcrychallenge ) and it's done a world of a difference for my energy level and kicking anxiety and depression to the curb. I saw an article that a friend posted on how this one entrepreneur put exercise in front of work. And when I finally implemented that principle in my life, oh goodness me, I am finally seeing itty bitty baby lines form for abs! Whhhhat. Never ever have I had this happen. I am no gym rat or fitness model, but this change started my day off right! 💪👌👊🏻
It's so important to feel awesome guys! If you want to feel accomplished, you MUST see progress! SWIPE 👈🏻 to see my progress! ❤️😍🤗
