We all have times where we’re stuck in a rut and it feels hard to pull ourselves through. During these times, it’s important to remind yourself of your goals and why you started. I’ve put together a goal setting worksheet that will help you stay motivated and get focused!
If you’re interested in turning your goals into a vision board, join me and Joriki Yoga on April 28th for a Yoga + Vision Board Making workshop. My viewers get a special discount. Purchase tickets here and use promo code GEE10.
With Valentine’s Day approaching this week, there’s a lot of talk about love. Whether you are celebrating love with your significant other, family member, friend or even your furry pet, any kind of love is beautiful, but the relationship we need to focus on is with ourselves. The media talks a lot about self-care rituals (which looks different for us all) but what we need to prioritize is self-love and actually speaking positively to ourselves internally.
I recently took a spin class where they put our stats up on the board and showed us our rank a few times throughout the class. This is when I realized the importance of self-love and having positive internal conversations with yourself. When I switched to a positive mindset, it made pushing through the class a lot easier, versus having negative thoughts and telling myself, “You aren’t good or strong enough.” andguesswhat… duringthatlastsprintinclassIkicked my name afewspotshigherupontheranklist.
If there’s ever a time where you doubt yourself or are maybe feeling down/overwhelmed by all of this Valentine’s Day talk this week, I have come up with a few journal exercises to help you remember you are loved and that you truly are a total badass. Grab your journal and start writing: Today I have accomplished _____
There are many things that can occur in one year’s time. Those things teach us lessons and help us grow. While mental health awareness increases (which thank goodness for this), more people are ditching New Year resolutions and are starting to cultivate intentions. Intentions can be things that you want to leave behind from the previous year, things you want to continue doing/bring into the new year, setting boundaries for yourself/relationships, or maybe it’s coming up with a mantra that will help you focus on your goals and being happier.
I’ve come up with a list of things I want to leave behind in 2018 as well as positive things that I want to continue to work on and bring into the new year. I encourage you all to spend some time meditating and doing the same!
Things to Leave Behind:
-Always saying yes to stuff I hate
-SO many memberships that I have and barely use (this is because I’m a “yes” person. I’m kind of like Ross and Chandler trying to quit the gym).
-Comparing myself to others
-Control and the need for perfection
-Mental health stigmas
Things to Bring into 2019:
-More charity work and giving back
-Good belly laughs
-Quality time with loved ones
-Tea drinking habits
-Celebrating all things both big and small
-Supporting small businesses
-Getting rid of things I don’t need (one step at a time with this, especially the shoes and purses)
