Let's Talk About Fatigue

Physical, emotional, chronic, adrenal fatigue or just plain exhaustion affects most of us. Auto-immune and thyroid disorders are on the rise. The stress of our lives is catching up with us. Who here remembers how fashionable it was in the 90's to say "I'm so stressed out" or "I have so much to do". It was said like a status symbol. The more you were stressed, the more important you were. I still have friends that talk this way. I believe that the current rise in the self-care industry is due to this way of thinking. The pendulum is swinging, which is GREAT, but we still have a lot on our plates. It is a fact, there is so much to do. Work comes home with us, the kids have activities to be shuttled to, groceries, errands, dinner, get that workout in, take a workshop to expand your skills, go back to school, take care of aging parents, maintain relationships, visit friends, pay those bills, do all the fun things.....I'm tired just thinking about it all.

Finding Balance on the Quest for Self-Love

If you've been following me here or on Instagram for a while, you know I declared this summer the Summer of {SELF} Love. What I love about my personal yoga and breathwork healing practice is that it connects me back to love. BIG LOVE. Through doing the work, whether that is yoga movement (Asana), meditation, or emotional breathwork healing (all of which is yoga) we find ways to move stuck energy and connect back with our true selves. The portals that open lead to love. This will further lead you to taking better care of yourself. Perhaps by continuing to practice. This will lead to more forgiveness and more patience for others but especially for yourself. That will lead to standing up for yourself, being able to see what is right for you and what isn't, and being able to let go of all that no longer serves you. Self-love is more than just pampering, it is being able to cut through the crap so you can let yourself shine. That takes work. That takes showing up. That takes being able to let go enough so that you can get to the core of what is holding you back.

Refilling Your Well

I was having coffee with a friend yesterday. We were both feeling depleted, bombarded with horrifying current events, trying to make our own ends meet, and not knowing what to do next. Feeling overwhelmed can take hold at anytime, whenever a major life event happens. Personal, political, or otherwise. How we deal with it is what matters.
