girl, you got it goin’ on… let’s amp it up today

I couldn’t wait any longer to drop these wisdom pearls into your lovely brain today.

I dropped my sweet angel face off at pre-school, (no…  I wasn’t kicking my heels in the air as I walked home… by myself!!) and had this instant intuitive hit that I needed to share with you.

You can’t play small anymore.

You can’t not do the thing your heart is telling you to for anymore.

Stop talking yourself out of making a choice that will change everything.

Book the ticket.

Take the class.

Stop looking at the recipe and make the damn thing.

Drink the water.

Lace up your shoes and hit the ground speed walking.

Wake up the first time the alarm goes off.

Dance like a crazy person… like I did to Beyonce this morning while my toddler boogied along with me.

Go outside.

Sit down and read the book.

Close your computer.

Get the juicer out.

Eat a banana and stop worrying about all the sugar.

For god’s sake…. put your life in motion girlfriend!

Here’s what happened to me when I decided to go for it…

  • I became a 5 time sold out retreat leader… (6th coming up April 2020 in California!)
  • I went from charging $150 an hour to more than $5,000 for 6 sessions (rates increase every year because my value continues to go up!)
  • I went on two retreats last year… for myself! (retreat leaders need to be a participant… it’s vital to filling up the tank)
  • I stopped having auto immune symptoms because I followed through and trusted the process (no more thinking I knew better than  a trained Chinese herbalist!)
  • I stopped seeking and started receiving (now I’m repeatedly asked to speak at events, go on radio interviews and more!)
  • My confidence to put together outfits that fit my body, my style and my personality started surfacing and girlfriend, I feel damn good at 35!


But if I never went for it, like full 100% in, I’d be waking up with extreme fatigue wishing I knew what to do with my life, continuing to go from job to job, training to training.

Not this girl and not you either.

Put yourself first.

I promise you, it’s life changing.

THIS IS WHY YOU OVERREACT…

So I’m getting ready to create the next Break Free Mastermind training and the lesson is about stress and overwhelm.

As a Certified Happiness Life Coach, I’ve learned a thing or two about the brain, habits and wires that are created from experiences and how to change pathways.

Overreacting is your body’s response to the things going on in your life or in your mind that you feel are stressful. We have wires that connect to stress. Experiences connect us to joy or stress wires. The more stress you have, different things build on each other and it creates chronic stress effect.

  • Noise
  • Chemicals
  • Food
  • People
  • Job
  • School
  • Things

Stress builds up. The more stress we have in our lives, the closer we get to the edge of our emotional cliff. One small thing happens – huge reaction (close to cliff). Find a way to reduce the stress. Stress is caused because of patterns and wires in our brain that connect to experiences in our life to feeling bad. Rewire stress to bring more joy.


3 ways to experience joy, have less stress and to literally rewire your brain


1. Stress Avoidance:

  • Negative coping strategies: substance abuse, love/sex/shopping addiction, ocd social media checks – we avoid things we should be doing and this causes more stress.
  • Positive: people, actions, behaviors, things, places that stress me out. I’m aware of them and plan my life accordingly to not come in contact with those things and avoid those things, I reduce stress. #boundaries #people #situations
  • Consciously choose a way to give yourself a productive break: do something you love, go for a walk, monitor your own thoughts, you have the power to choose.


2. Give yourself a joy boost:

  • Creating more pathways of joy, if you keep using these, your brain creates a sheath around it and it gets strong. More experiences of joy – you’ll create very strong connections of joy.
  • Stress starts to weaken.

Pay attention to your breath + hold your body at one – stand up straight, head up, shoulders back, hands open, smiling (mountain pose) tells your brain you’re supposed to feel good+ think about something that brings pleasure to you: thinking about something you love like walking through a field of flowers

Create 5 of your own joy boosts.


3. Retrain the pathway.

Choose something that triggers a bad memory. Imagine the thing. Allow it to bring up the negative association. Pick something that you’re going to replace it with, must be something that’s going to bring you joy.

HERE’S HOW:

Imagine the trigger —> switch to think about the joyful thing —> do it 10 times every day for several days —> you’re associating this bad memory with the joyful thing

There you have it, the quickest way to stop overreacting, plus it doesn’t cost a thing, just your mindfulness.

If you’re ready to reduce the overwhelm, break free of emotional roadblocks and start living your most desired life, apply here.
