A Morning of Affirmations

The alarm goes off in the morning and you jump out of bed. You didn’t jump in excitement, but in an anxious panic to take on the day. Anxiety could be the silent killer to all of us. The constant need to feel like you are doing enough, earning enough, and just being your ultimate best is daunting. Anxiety about your personal life and work life could be stripping you of your overall happiness as a human being. But how do we remind ourselves that we are good enough? Remember this one word..Affirmation.

Having daily affirmations set for yourself, and on repeat in your mind could be the most useful and helpful tip to dealing with your anxiety. Stating what you will achieve, how you will feel and what you expect of yourself is an example of healing.

Take an extra 10 minutes in the morning to speak to your soul about how you want to live your life. Set your affirmations, revisit them daily, and revamp them for new dreams, expectations and goals to better your future.

Here are a few examples of daily affirmations you can implement to strip anxiety and be one step closer to a better you.

1.) I am feeling strong, healthy and beautiful today.

2.) I am grateful and content with my life.

3.) I have the strength to have the best day today.

4.) My work has purpose and improves my life.

5.) Everything I do works towards my best self.

 

Sunshine and Your Best Self

Sunshine and Your Best Self

Bad mood? Bitchy? Angry at the world?

Do you feel yourself thinking you are any of the above things? Quit it, happiness is in your near future.

There is an easy fix to your overall mood and it is a natural fix, no medications, only good old sunlight.

The sun is a powerful star at the center of the solar system. Not only is it to most important source for energy on earth, but it affects our state of being mentally, physically and emotionally. Imagine a rainy day that is dark and gloomy. Do you feel your best self on those days? With the lack of sun, there is a lack in the amount of seratonin the brain releases, which leads to a lethargic feeling.

Adding in a balance of sunlight into your day could trigger an instant mood boost to make you feel your best self. Outside exposure to the ultraviolent B radiation in the sun’s rays causes a persons skin to create vitamin D. Exposing yourself to vitamin D on a daily basis increases bone health and overall wellness.

So make the change! Get outside and go for a hike or a bike ride in the sun. Take a simple vacation to a naturally sunny place during winter to adjust back to your sunny self. Or, just open the window and let in the sunshine, every little bit helps (with sunscreen added) so implement new outside activities for a healthier future.

The Art of Mindful Awareness

The Art of Mindful Awareness

The introduction of spirituality into your life is transcending. Across the globe, aside from religion, people are connecting on a spiritual level through meditation, reiki, yoga and various other practices.

Your Ultimate State of Being

Your Ultimate State of Being

Feeling tired, sad, alone or just not your ultimate best? We could spend our entire lifetime just trying to figure out how to achieve our “perfect” true self but it is easier said than done. Let’s re-align ourselves to give a little extra everyday. 

1.) Feel fulfilled in every moment

Changing the negative into positive in everything we do could seem like a task but just nit-picking one positive thing and maximizing it could be a life saver. You 9-5 job might not be all glitz and glam, but pick the one you do the best in your everyday and praise it. Remind yourself that that one aspect of sheer success is something YOU do well, no one else.

2.) Love and Respect to others

The moment someone treats you disrespectful, how do you feel? Take that feeling and put someone else in your shoes to feel it. It’s awful…correct? Treating others with the ultimate love and respect gives them the best you, but also makes them feel 100% as well. No one likes to constantly be put down, so rise up and bring others with you.

3.) Love yourself like no other

Binge eat 6 candy bars, 4 sodas and 2 plates of pasta and see how you feel. This sugar high is really giving your body a depressing low. Not only should you love others and the world, but self-love is you number 1. What you put in your body should nourish, repair and regenerate. Keeping tabs on how you are keeping yourself healthy is the most important gift you can give yourself.

Exercise, eat healthy and remind yourself that you are your best self every day.

Confidence is Key

Confidence is Key

Fat shaming, body bashing and people that are just downright rude need to take a step back and let us powerful women take charge. In today’s society, with the influx of social sharing, and the popular peek we are giving onlookers into our lives, it’s hard to stay confident in a world where confidence is truly lacking. In the normal day to day, it is a task to maintain self-confidence and to be in love with your true self. People spend lifetimes second guessing even the smallest decisions in life that can offer the biggest reward because of self-doubt. Now is the time to stop.

There is no time like the present to stand out from the crowd and stand up to yourself. It’s one thing to try and tell yourself to reek self-confidence, it’s another to implement into your everyday.

Here are a few tips (also reminders) on what you can do on a daily basis to feel worth it and outshine society:

Strut for the Moment:

A good workout, or your daily drive to work always comes equipped with the perfect tune. Incorporating power beats or favorite music into your everyday life allows you to strut your stuff and give you something to step to.

Living for Enjoyment

When do you feel most confident? Is it when you are shopping? Is it when you are naked in front of your significant other? Remember those moments and life for those moments. You must bask in the high moments to outweigh the low.

Accepting Failure

The hardest thing in life is accepting failure. Our society isn’t perfect, and guess what…you aren’t either. To try is the biggest act of self-confidence. Those who keep trying are pre-conditioning themselves to be able to handle setbacks and to learn task management. You learn from all of your mistakes and those are what frame your future.
