    Growing in Resilience Part 2

    Growing in Resilience Part 2

    Last week on Epsiode 56, I started to explore how to grow in resilience and today I’m continuing last week’s conversation with 8 juicy examples of how you can grow your own emotional fortitude reserves.  
    What I love about these suggestions the most? Aside from helping you to grow in resilience,  they are essentially practices that are well worth your time, any way. It’s amazing to me how having high serving practices in place enrich your life and mutually support each other. 
    >>> If you haven’t listened to last week’s episode, yet I encourage you stop what you’re doing and listen to it first and then circle around back to this one. It will just make more sense to you that way.

    Here are the 8  ways to grow in resilience discussed in today's episode:
    Adopt a religious or spiritual practice.Be that social butterfly more often.Become a lifelong learner. Tap into your physical fitness. Be present, not distracted. Practice Gratitude.Don’t be a cavewoman when it comes to your cognitive and emotional flexibility.Find your true purpose and calling in life. 
    The Weekly Journal Prompt of the Week is BACK! Make sure to take some time to reflect and journal on this:

    WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU LIKE THAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T?

    Growing in Resilience Part 1

    Growing in Resilience Part 1

    I originally wanted to talk about Growing in  resilience a year ago when we were already a few months into the world falling flat on its face. Fast forward one and half years later and we’re still on shaky ground. I want to hold space for those of you who are feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. 
    >>WHY GROWING IN RESILIENCE IS IMPORTANT
    It's been a tough time with a lot of heartbreaks, and a lot of global suffering.  It takes courage and grit to wake up and still keep moving one foot in front of the other towards your dreams. Having emotional fortitude and growing in resilience can help.
    Today’s episode is all about resilience and offering practical tips and perspectives on how you can build upon your own reservoir. In fact, there are many things you can do to actively grow in resilience that there’ll be two episodes to cover it.
    GROWING IN RESILIENCE PART 1
    Specifically, this episode will cover 3 ways you can grow in resilience. Those ways are rooted in:
     realistic optimism, facing your fears and following a moral compass. >>> My aim is to help you to release some of the overwhelm that you may be experiencing by giving you tools for your wellness toolbox.

    Harmonizing your divine energy with Nadi Shodhana

    Harmonizing your divine energy with Nadi Shodhana

    Breathing in a purposeful way does more than just fill your lungs with fresh air. It can reduce overwhelm by calming your nervous system down as well as harmonize your divine masculine and feminine energies. 


    Nadi Shodhana  is a simple breathing practice you can adopt to help attract more balance and alignment into your daily life. 


    Nadi Shodhana is a pranayama (controlled breathing technique) that harmonizes our divine energies by alternating inhaling and exhaling through each nostril.

    This is a bonus training to accompany my "What's your divine energy mix? Quiz. 

    Your Divine Energy Mix  is your personalized mix of both Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine Energies.  It is a reflection of your own unique tendencies, behaviors and way of thinking. It’s your energetic secret sauce! 

    While many would say the ideal is to have both equal parts Divine Masculine with Divine Feminine, most of us fall within different areas of the divine energy spectrum. 


    Once you know your divine energy mix you can unlock your Muse Method which is your perfect self care ritual and wellness pathway.  Understanding your own muse method is like having an internal compass to guide you towards your greatest potential.  Do you naturally flow with more feminine energy?  Or does a higher level of masculine energy propel you into action?

    Should you exercise during your period?

    Should you exercise during your period?

    Friend, should you exercise during your period? I know it’s tempting to push yourself and ignore how your body feels. BUT, is that really in your best interest?
    Diet culture encourages us to workout as intensely as possible so that we can rev up our metabolism. And it also shames us when we can’t keep up.  It's easy to feel defeated when you're body can't keep up with these rigid expectations.
    Your body is working extra hard during menstruation. When we consider that exercise places added stress on your body, that means exercising during your period really taxes your system. 

    So should you rest during your bleed? Maybe. Tune in to find out more!
    >> In this episode, I talk about Alexandria King's The Moon in You: A Period Book for Girls. To find out more about Alexandria's work as well as how to purchase this book go to: www.littleredslibrary.com
