You know how you feel affects everything. But does the thought of trying to figure out a way to do all the things you want to do to take care of you make your head spin? It happens!

Self care overwhelm is REAL! Which is why in this week's episode we're talking all about it, how to know if you're dealing with it and most importantly: how to shift it!
Have you ever noticed how after you workout or do Yoga you feel so powerful, unstoppable, and ready to take on the world?
That is exactly what I shared about on my latest podcast interview on the Motivation Monday Podcast episode right here!
I'm proud of myself. Funny, that wasn’t as awkward as I thought it would be to say (or write LOL). Do you find it easy to share your wins? It's definitely still a new skill for me. But I think it's one worth practicing!
And that's what I've been doing lately: practicing what I teach and I'm happy to report its working. I’m learning to celebrate my wins, stay focused on my mission and being very intentional about how I’m showing up so that I’m in alignment with the big vision version of me.
And guess what?? By doing that work (in addition to lots more) I just wrapped up my best launch yet...woohooo!
Best in terms of:
Connecting with hundreds of new people around the world and welcoming them into my community of Elevated and Empowered Entrepreneurs
Offering awesome workshops that people loved
Welcoming 12 amazing beings into the first round of my new program ELEVATE
But ultimately best in terms of learning to side step...
By now I'm sure that you have realized that Yoga has a long list of benefits such as relieving back pain and neck tension, lowering your stress level and boosting your productivity to name just a few! But did you know that it helps you build strong and healthy bones too?
Pretty awesome right?
In the poses we are placing our joints in a variety of positions which helps to circulate their fluid and stimulates renewal of cartilage, tendons and ligaments.
Simultaneously, the bones are isometrically subjected to forces many times those of gravity, which causes them to grow stronger.
Yoga uses such a variety of positions that it stimulates the muscles and joints from all sides! Which is also fantastic for building strength AND maintaining flexibility.
This signals the mechanosensor cells within our bones...
At certain times of the year it seems like everyone around us is sniffling and sneezing right? With colds and flus going around like crazy it is so important that we do everything we can to stay healthy and keep our immune systems strong!
Remember the saying: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"? Well it's true! The more that we can do on a regular basis to keep our vitality high the better, which means we will get sick less often and recover more quickly when we do.
Since it effects our body on many levels simultaneously, Yoga is an extremely powerful tool for boosting our immunity and keeping us feeling great. The key of course is to practice it on a regular basis to get maximum benefits and keep everything running optimally.
