5 Ways to Foster a Confident Daughter

I definitely want to empower my daughters to avoid what I went through at such a young age and celebrate the way they were created. They are so uniquely and wonderfully made and I want them to embrace that. In order for them to embrace who they are, I have to start the training right here in my own home. The media, their peers, and even our daughters will tear down their confidence, but I am going to fight to build them up. Here are 5 ways to promote a positive body image in our daughters:

Hone Your Intuition: How to Thrive in the Mind-Body Connection

Hone Your Intuition: How to Thrive in the Mind-Body Connection

Practice Gratitude:  Every morning when I wake up, before I get out of bed, I either write down or make a mental list of 3 things to be grateful for that day.  One of the last things I do before I fall asleep at night is list 3 things again I'm thankful for that day, whether the same or different from that morning's list.  This shifts your perspective, keeps you present, and really boosts your mood.  Gratitude is proven to lower stress, since neurotransmitters like serotonin inhibit cortisol overproduction.

5 Minute Face: The Best Minimalist Makeup Routine.

5 Minute Face: The Best Minimalist Makeup Routine.

I believe that my mood for the day is solely determined by how put together I look. I can be having the best day ever but if I don’t feel confident then I just can’t enjoy myself. Before pregnancy, during pregnancy and now with a one year old I never allowed anything to affect my self-care routine. It is the little piece of me that I wanted to hold on to. Luckily for me my approach to makeup is a minimalistic one.

Self-Care for New Moms: How to Give Your Body What it Needs

Self-Care for New Moms: How to Give Your Body What it Needs

Even though I had read the books, questioned my mother friends and imagined many times what it would be like for my body to make a new life, I was entirely unprepared for the realities of the change my body would undergo. Early on my body began to ache. It hurt to receive the many congratulatory hugs from friends. My boobs went from feeling like bricks to being sensitive to the most gentle brushing. By month four, the relaxin hormone had done its work to get my body ready for the expansion; however, it left me in excruciating pain when I walked.

Invitation to Self Love

Invitation to Self Love

You are invited to love yourself so deeply, take such good care of yourself, that others can see how deeply you deserve to be loved. Especially to love the not so likable parts, even at times when you don’t feel loved so much by others. Self love is not about being selfish, but exactly the opposite. It’s about taking good care of ourselves so that we can offer the best us to the world. As cliché as the saying “you have to love yourself first before you can deeply love others” sounds, it makes sense that the more things we accept and learn to love in ourselves – the better we feel in our skins, perfect or not – the more things we’ll accept and learn to love in others.

Nourishing Self-Care Rituals to Show Yourself Some Love

Nourishing Self-Care Rituals to Show Yourself Some Love

As we continue our journey into this new year of embracing wellness and positivity, let's take inventory of our current self-care situation. How many things do you do in a day, or even a week, that are just for you? Hopefully you can list at least a couple, if not more. But if you're in a busy season of life, whether caring for young children, working in a challenging career field, caring for sick relatives - or all of the above - self-care may sound like a distant memory; a vague idea that sounds nice in theory but holds no place in your current reality. Let us encourage you today with some simple, practical ideas for implementing your own nourishing self-care rituals into your routine and making them work for you:

Moving Forward When We Feel Stuck

Moving Forward When We Feel Stuck

What happens when we set our intentions to mindfully move forward and let go of a negative habit or belief, only to find ourselves pulled back toward the thing we declared we were ready to let go only a few days (or even minutes) later? This feeling of being stuck does not indicate that we are not strong enough or not serious about moving forward to embrace better things. It's simply an indication that we are human, and that sustainable change will not happen overnight.

Let Go of Self-Judgment to Embrace Self-Love

Let Go of Self-Judgment to Embrace Self-Love

As we continue our journey of letting go of negativity and unneeded excess in the new year, may we become more aware of our internal dialogues and the judgments we place on ourselves. Self-judgment is sneaky and insidious; we sometimes don't even notice when we are judging ourselves. But a critical inner voice that is constantly bossing us around, stating that our thoughts and feelings are "good" or "bad", and telling us what we "should" and "should not" think can wreak havoc on our self concept and limit our ability to truly love ourselves well.

LOVING YOUR BODY

LOVING YOUR BODY

The desire to feel better, have more energy, and take care of our bodies is a beautiful start to a life-long journey of health; however, the resolutions are often much more focused on how we can look like the model on the magazine, not on how we want to feel.  Contrary to what society wants us to believe, resolutions should never be about changing ourselves.  We are all born unique individuals with unique qualities to offer the world, and we should focus on embracing those beautiful gifts and using them to positively impact the world.  An intention or resolution should be about discovering our passions, pruning things in our lives that do not serve us, and unleashing our potential to live messy, imperfect, but purposeful lives.
