Where my female entrepreneurs at? In a world where we’re all hustling hard for our dreams, here’s your friendly reminder to pause, take a breath and make sure you’re still doing things you love outside of work (even if you love your job!). Despite what you might think, it’s possible to run a successful business and still have time for things you do ‘just for fun’. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you probably know I passionately believe that having more fun makes you more successful. But how do you take a step back and remember what those passions are?
When I found out Whole Foods Market 365 was coming to my neighborhood, my entire being lit up with JOY. I’ll be the first to admit that a large part of my happiness stems from having access to a healthy and affordable grocery store nearby. When I moved to another part of Brooklyn, I gave up the convenience of my neighborhood Whole Foods, which was a challenge for me. I’m SO happy with the new 365 Market – I love how it is more affordable, and yet I still have access to the brands I love like Kite Hill and Kombrewcha.
Photos by Candace Molatore + Outfits courtesy of Beyond Yoga Hi friends! I’m very excited to share that I partnered with the one and only Kait Hurley on a Feel the Love Movement + Meditation Flow! Kait and I met in Arizona last year at MindBodyGreen’s REVITALIZE, and since then, we’ve become fast friends. She’s one of the sweetest and most loving people I know with such a fire for what she does. She’s really the whole package, and someone I deeply admire. I love Kait’s approach to combining movement with meditation, because it makes meditation much easier after working up a sweat. Meditation helps give your body deep rest to recover, so after you workout, you are less antsy and it’s easier to sit.
By the end of March, I will have flown in and out of 5 different cities in a span of 2 months! That’s the most back-to-back travel I’ve ever done in such a short span of time. While traveling is exciting, it can take a toll on your body if you’re not careful. Especially if you’re flying, you’re more prone to catching a virus since you’re trapped in a metal tube of canned air that’s definitely chilling with germs and bacteria. I’m doing everything I can to stay healthy, so here’s what has been working for me SO FAR!
Introspection and self-reflection… it’s an art, and we all could use more of it. Let me ask you: Does your brain feel cluttered? Do you often feel as though your days are spent trying to keep your head above water? The good news is you’re not alone. However, it’s time to make changes. Being swamped is not something to take pride in. Let’s create space for self-reflection, so we can examine our own internal thoughts and dissect what they mean and how they make us feel.
