Say this: "Today, I thrive." I'm done with survival. Yes. I am a survivor. I am a fighter. That doesn't change. What changes, right now, is this; I will no longer just survive. I will rise. I will thrive!!!
The wind was howling outside as I did my yoga this morning. The trees swaying, sometimes intensely. And I thought about the balance in both my yoga practice and the trees outside - how their strength against the storm and my strength against stress is not merely to be strong, but to be flexible. Our ability to survive and thrive is a combination of dancing with the flow, stretching and readjusting, while simultaneously holding strong to our roots and foundation. Learning to bend can help keep us from breaking.
Jason saw his 100th check-in with CG today! Even though he's always late (which really means about 95 hours of exercise, instead of 100 ), he gives his all when he's present! Big congrats to this guy #thrive#BetterTogether#KeepAmericaWarm

"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied."
Well, when you break it down like that, it seems pretty obvious if not urgent to tend to our bodies carefully and constantly! I'm not talking about resolutions, I'm talking about cultivating lasting changes through supplemental ritual and practice that actually feels good. Today, let's resist the urge to fight our way through the Mondays and slow down enough to listen to our bodies. As I've learned over the last several years, our bodies will never lie to us, they simply can't. Our thoughts and emotions may play some pretty sly tricks on us, but our bodies remain true. Check out my latest blog post unpacking some of my absolute favorite wellness tools and rituals. It's time to partner with our bodies. #linkinbio
