Affirmation Friday- Are You Up For The Challenge?

What does this mean to you? 

We get caught up in so many other thoughts and thought patterns that we rarely take time to be in the now.

*We mentally psych ourselves out on Sunday nights that we will be miserable the next day because "it's Monday." 

*We try to motivate ourselves to eat healthy or exercise by obsessing over what we hate about our body instead of what we love. 

*We don't notice blessings in our life because we can't stop thinking about the  unfortunate things that happen to us.

Why aren't we sharing the love? Talking, thinking, sharing, or doing what we love? Are we too busy just trying to get through the day that we feel we can't focus mental energy to shift to a more positive outlook? 

Increasingly, there are more people talking about living in the now, but find it hard to put that into practice...
Maybe that's just too vague of a goal to work towards. 

So let's just start with love. I challenge you to join me in participating in the 7 Day Spiritual Gangster Challenge- Created by Natalie Burrage, my dear friend and mentor, and founder of Love Yoga Flow in Columbus, OH. Click on the following link to watch her video explaining the challenge. 

For 7 days, put your energy into building others up, being kind to yourself, and transforming those negative thoughts into positives as they come up.
Be a badass gangster of love, just for 7 days. It may be just what you need to change your life for the better. And, it's free!

5 Ways to Get to Your Early Morning Workout

Sometimes, the hardest part of getting your workout in is just getting started or getting to the gym! Here are 5 tips that may make it easier to get going.  1. Sleep in Your Gym Clothes.  When we're tired, the more steps it takes to do something, the less we may want to do it. If you wake up already dressed for the gym, that's one less thing you have to do before heading out the door.  2. Set your Coffee Pot On a Timer. When it comes to early mornings, it's not that we hate the morning itself, it's the being tired that we despise! If you drink coffee, have your coffee pot timed to start a few minutes before you wake up. If you  have another favorite caffeinated drink, prep it the night before or set a cup/bottle of it next to your bed.  3.  Make an Appointment to Meet Someone There.  This should be someone you wouldn't want to disappoint (best friend, trainer, etc). Even if we aren't in the mood to show up for ourselves, we can be much more likely to show up if

Affirmation Friday: Healthy Detachment

noun | de•tach•ment  : indifference to worldly concerns : freedom from bias or prejudice As soon as we look in the mirror, we subconsciously evaluate ourselves, and that chatter isn't usually very nice.  "I hate my wrinkles."  "I look tired."  "This outfit looks bad on me."  How often do we truly just observe ourselves without any negative bias? Why must we judge ourselves, put ourselves down, or otherwise be hard on ourselves?  Being hard on ourselves has traditionally never worked to help us change what we're unhappy with, so we've got nothing to lose if we decide to experiment with just observing- without judgment- our physical or mental selves. I invite you not to judge yourself negatively for the next 24 hours! Print a picture of the affirmation and tape it on your mirror if necessary!  ~The Wonder Vegan   

Affirmation Friday!
