It’s Quite Alright To Go With The Flow

It’s ok to be fluid! Alright alright alright! It’s wonderful to set goals and plan but it’s ok to fluid and go with the flow too. It just depends on how you are. I’ve always been more ok I’m doing this oh! No I’m gonna go do that now, just depending on what’s happening or what’s come up. Raising a child with autism has made me have to be that way and I’ve kind of always felt like that’s not good to be that way no I need to plan it all out and follow it perfectly but that’s not me. And that’s ok. Feeling good about myself or you feeling good about yourself is what’s gonna lead to better productivity anyway and help you enjoy life  more! So yes, set goals, make a plan, then allow yourself to work through that your way. You’ll actually get more done.

10 Yoga Poses for Faster Weight Loss (This isn’t one of them LOL!)

That’s right, these ten yoga poses for weight loss will help you achieve your fitness goals faster! Most people don’t connect yoga with weight loss, yet if you step into an advanced class at a yoga studio you’ll see the crowd is full of toned, healthy individuals. This is because yoga, when done routinely and correctly, is actually an incredibly powerful weight-loss tool. You’ll notice your muscles burn and shake with energy as you hold a balanced position, which means that you’ve engaged the muscle, in much the same way you engage it while lifting weights.

These poses engage large muscle groups that are very effective for burning calories. Some of them are also quite challenging, so they’ll help you build lean muscle throughout your body. See them HERE.  

Is Turmeric the New Prozac?

Having struggled much of my life with what I would call “very severe” anxiety disorder, I deeply appreciate anything that contributes positively to our mental health. I don’t think depression has been a big problem for me unless having to deal with the anxiety gets me down OR something painful happens, however, as I age and realize more about myself and life, I know it’s best for me to keep my brain as happy as possible! I’d love it if you’d read this article and learn more about Turmeric and how it can help you greatly improve your mental health. Read it HERE.

5 Steps to Take When You’re in a Funk and Can’t Imagine Getting Any Work Done

We’ve all been there. I actually just came out of what was like a two year funk! I thought my drive and creativity would never return. In my case, I was going through something really hard personally but many things can contribute to a funk. One thing I knew to do was hang in there. Sometimes you’re in the kind of funk that requires a major change but in my case I knew I should just hold steady because I still loved the idea of what I do. Read this great article from The Daily Muse HERE on tips to help you get out of a funk.

7 Spending Mistakes You Keep Making

Though I’m hoping for spring to come sooner, I don’t have too much trust in the shadow or lack thereof.

The Bookshelf: Fight Like a Girl and Dancing Naked in Fuzzy Red Slippers

So I went on the opposite ends of the spectrum here. Fight Like a Girl is definitely awesome but also more intense while Dancing Naked in Fussy Red Slippers embraces letting yourself go and making a little fun of life. I really enjoyed them both. Fight Like a Girl has been out for quite a while and many of you may be familiar with it but it is really inspirational and Lisa Bevere certainly nails what it’s it like to be a woman who feels displaced in life.
