In the morning of the 3rd day of the 100 Day Self Love Affair I woke up tired. Probably because I woo'd myself too much the day before by taking a yoga class, a Zumba class and a ballroom/latin dance class all in one day. I was sooo sore! I guess I was getting too much action right off the bat? Ha!
Anyway, I asked myself - "Darling, what would you like to do this morning before going to work?" And what I heard myself wish for was some time in the sauna. Then as I was reading my morning emails, I read this quote:
"Make up your mind that nothing is more important than how I feel now, because now is everything. Now is the whole enchilada. Now is the power of me. Now, now, now, now, now... You might as well start somewhere, and it might as well be now. Why not start improving your life now, now, now?"
Because I am dedicated to loving myself up, I didn't waste any time and went downstairs in our building to turn on the sauna.
It felt very good to sweat, but more than that it felt good to relax. To do something relaxing first thing in the morning instead of waiting for the evening. Before I would wait until I "deserved" this relaxing time, but not today. I felt worthy of relaxing activity first thing in the morning. Why wait postpone joy?
While in the sauna, I felt inspired to record the video below and after sauna, I took myself for a green juice and had a chocolate Shakeology shake for lunch. After work I indulged in a mediation and stretch yoga class with one of my favorite yoga teachers and it felt amazing to center my mind and get quiet. Lastly, the evening concluded with a fabulous raw vegan BBQ Guacamole Collard wrap and I am about to watch a silly movie, cuddled up on the couch with Snoop Dog (my yorkie-poo pup).
So, what are you doing to love yourself up? How are you clearing space to nourish yourself? Please comment below and let know how I can support you!
One of the biggest challenges my clients face when they start working with me is discovering that deep inside them there is a voice that sabotages their successes. Somewhere deep inside there is a voice that keeps telling them that they are not good enough… Continue reading here.
One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast. Little girls from an early age are taught to look through the looks and love people for who they are. I think we all consciously try to do that. Except for one person. In my line of work I often see women who can't fall in love with themselves. Continue reading here.
