If you’ve felt like me lately it feels like your schedule is attacking your life. You have no control and are an innocent bystander in the craziness.
On a positive, a lot of fun happenings have been presenting themselves to me and of course I want to say YES to them all. I want to say yes to teaching new fitness classes, yes to dinner n drinks with friends, yes to all of the workouts n workshops, yes to girlfriend gatherings and so on but my personal health is on major OVERLOAD.
It’s been too much eating out. Too many nights where drinks are offered and I say yes. Too much cramming thing after thing and not ENOUGH rest, awareness, yoga, morning walks with Stuart and so on.
THE BEAUTY BOOST: “Less Do. More Be.”
My friend Nina, co-creator of Wine & Shine podcast AND owner of Nourished with Nina wrote this IG post this week which I friggin loved!
She said, “I used to live my life on hyper-speed. Moving so quickly and filling my days with so many things that I never had a chance to just BE. To sit and and tune-in to the messages my body was sending me to slow down. Until … my body literally stopped me in my tracks and FORCED me to make some changes. I had no choice!
Even now, I LOVE filling my days with a ton of activities, but this time I know when it’s time to hit the pause button. Getting in my yoga, journaling, and meditation are all non-negotiable items on my to-do list. They balance out my high energy and that’s the big piece that was missing before. I needed a dose of yin energy to compliment all the yang!”
Can you relate?! I sure can. Follow her IG: @NourishedwithNina
