How Does Mindfulness Lead to Success?

Self-care is important. Whether it’s quick mini-meditations each morning to your weekly Sunday bath – it’s about time you put yourself on the top of your list of priorities.

As a woman, at times we may feel like we can’t do certain things (like taking care of ourselves and putting ourselves first!) but don’t let the noise put you down. Whether you have kids, are in school, or anywhere in between – let’s dive deeper into ways that we can put ourselves first and still be successful.

Sticking to My Goals and Straying Away from Getting into a Rut | Weekly Reflection #3

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Not only am I coming to you guys on Wednesday with my weekly reflection, but I also have yet to stick to my 3 blog posts a week.

Even though that is still a goal of mine, I also have to realize that in order to reach our goals sometimes we have to fail, which at any other point of my life I would have thought that to be unfortunate. This time is a little different.

Luckily, today we won’t be talking about that! Instead, we’re going to take a moment to reflect on what I felt yesterday and really understand what my body was telling me. Last week I was consistent with practicing yoga and meditating before bed. I also think I was pretty good at waking up somewhat earlier although I kind of fell off there Thursday and Friday (woke up at 9 am, roughly) since I was just lazing around those days ’cause I knew the weekend would be pretty killer.

I don’t think I ever really took into consideration the physical and mental weight that moving across country has on your body. I think that’s why I want to take advantage of whatever it is I’m feeling right now and focus on the good. This week has been a lot of that.
