MEDITATION TRANSLATED | = mini break. Anything where you find your focusing on one thing, everything stops, you're only thinking about that. Is meditation.👇If you find your mind is going ten to the dozen, either to-doing, worrying, assuming, mind reading etc. Take regular mini getaways.
Getting away from all the thoughts
You don't have to be closing your eyes, in a group, with silence to experience meditation.
Places I find help my mind to take a mini break.
By the lake
By the sea
On the balcony listening to the birds
On my bike
On the bus watching the world go by.
YouTube, find a guided meditation. .
Mini breaks help prevent stress.
Help you to see you don't have to spend the day in thoughts. Give you space to think logically & not emotionally.
Scenes from this morning’s workout. Still pleased with my progress, especially on dips, pull ups & barbell curls. 💪🏻✌🏻

3 seizures in a week. I can feel myself falling into a muted state. This will pass. Don’t be numb, don’t be numb. It’s an attractive feeling. Not feeling anything is better than feeling this. I don’t really mean that. I’m a mess but I’m leaving my apartment anyway. I can’t live in fear. I’m not afraid. Fear only feeds into the seizing. It’s a slippery slope. I can do this. I need to do this. -
#FlexFriday - When you’re feelin’ good as hell as the Player of the Game.
If this video would have been taken one year ago - the mom behind the camera would have been dreading going to hockey.
Not because I didn’t like it, not because I wasn’t excited for Payton...
But because I felt so cruddy, all the time - that it irritated me to have to go out and do things outside of the house.
I literally would have rather sat at home, and been crabby than gone to a hockey game and watched Payton have SO much fun.
𝐈 𝐀𝐌 𝐒𝐎 𝐓𝐇𝐀𝐍𝐊𝐅𝐔𝐋 for having been presented the opportunity to STOP being that person. Looking back - I 𝐍𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑 want to be anywhere near the person I was then. I never want to stop growing, I never want to stop being a better, mord present parent in Payton’s life - and had I not 𝐒𝐀𝐈𝐃 𝐘𝐄𝐒 to something that scared the crap out of me.... I would have missed hockey yesterday - and I would have missed getting to see Payton do something that made him so excited and brought him so much joy, because I was selfish - and let my feelings about myself affect my whole family.
Cannibidiol (CBD) is a compound extracted from cannibis plants. Around 500 phytochemicals have been identified in hemp plants with hundreds of them being terpenoids. Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their pleasant aromas, flavors and other medicinal properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids. There are over 100 cannabinoids found in hemp and marijuana plants.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Friday Fact: Everyone Gets’ Stress & Triggered Around Holidays
Studies show that the 3 main causes of stress during the holiday season comes from: * Financial Demands
* Lack of Time
* Negotiating the interpersonal dynamics of family
* Keeping up with personal health habits (like exercise)
When stress happens or you get that automatic “gut” reaction of anxiety or dread (trigger reaction), adrenaline and cortisol are surging through your body. These are the stress chemicals. These chemicals send the message to your brain that there is a “threat”. Symptoms include rapid heartbeat, sweaty palms, a “pit” in the stomach. This reaction causes your frontal lobe (where we do decision making and rational thinking) to go “off-line”. Making it more difficult to think clearly, rationally and contributes to impulsivity, and disrupted sleep.

This is a great book with lots of amazing lessons to be learnt & applied. I could have finished it faster, but I had to take it one bite a time to make sure I'll absorb it all.
I was hesitant at first I thought I won't be able to relate because I was never into art. But after the author pointed out things like, being carefree should never be looked at as being irresponsible, I honestly took a deep sigh. Let's just say I've lived a dull life and I wish I've done things differently in the past even if it would've hurt me. I also like when he said, “Don't let the last day be the day you figure life out.” At some point I needed those words to hit me in the face. I've been reading a lot of self-help books especially when I'm emotionally down and I have to say I need to start doing those things mentioned on the last chapter. This is a must read book especially when you feel like Life seems idle, hard or meaningless. But regardless of your current situation and circumstances this book reminds you that anyone can live an artful life. It's a choice to treat this journey you’re on as an adventure in which you write your own story.
When you start to feel like things should have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that got you here. They are not accidents and those moments weren’t in vain. You are not the same. You have grown and are growing. You are breathing and you are living. You are wrapped in endless, boundless grace. And things will get better, there is more to you than yesterday -MHN

Here are 5 ways music can help you through the #Christmas season:
1. Introduce new music into your personal #soundtrack . With today’s technology and on-demand music services, Christmas is a great time to access brand new music in order to massage your auditory cortex and your imagination. We often feel happiest when we embrace our creativity and music can help get us there.
2. Listen to seasonal music with no lyrics and perhaps a new rhythm. If you are a non-preferred-Christmas-listener (NPCL) but your mom is coming over to bake her best #shortbread , try instrumental Christmas music with a unique beat (e.g., reggae). Changing a negative or resistant emotional state is at the root of getting into a positive, productive state. This can be particularly helpful during cookie baking season.
3. Listen to music that soothes you and that can help you de-stress during this high-stress season. The right music relaxes the mind and lowers cortisol levels. When used intentionally, there is ample evidence to suggest music can make a difference in lowering anxiety and reducing your #stress .
4. Use music to feel connected to those you cannot be with in person. Music is a powerful anchor and roots people into the moment, helping their memory to maintain important data for later, and helping them feel more connected to those they care about, even when separated by death or distance. Music can boost memories while allowing our brain to access its reserves and remember important events and information.
5. Socialize to your favourite music of the season – whatever that may be. Music inspires us and creates a clear passage to health. Take time for live music (making or watching), singing together, and enjoying one another’s company through music. Focus on creating new, more positive memories for future years to come. *For those who are struggling to face the season; feeling overwhelmed; or sinking deeper and deeper in a state of sadness, #anxiety , hopelessness, worry or guilt, it is really important that you talk to someone, such as a counsellor, therapist, nurse or doctor. This life is tough to get through alone. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Love you friends
Couldn’t finish it all ...... but MAN did @watercoursefoods knock this one out of the park 😋 .

It is so important to eliminate bad food, and add digestive enzymes, probiotics and prebiotics to your health routine. The most important part to remember is to utilize the education that you gain and get quality, clean supplements that help you get on the right track! I love the wellness products I take and the thousands of testimonials of lives changed by making that commitment to better health!

Square off those hips. Find length in your spine. Lead with your heart. Always. In yoga. In life. Lead with your heart. And if you start to falter or get discouraged because at first you’re shaky, or if you encounter resistance and fall down, remember, strong muscles are built tear by tear. So falter. Tremble. Stumble if you have to. After all, this is how it must always begin.
