I’ve been feeling more and more like this version of myself as I continue to stay committed to self care tools I practice daily. In this version of me I feel grounded, alive, connected, self satisfied.… ✨✨Here’s my go to AM self-care routine tool kit.
1. Meditate
2. Quad in my journal (swamp, brag, gratitude, desires)
3. Lions mane coffee
4. Listen to an uplifting interview or podcast while I prep healthy meals
4. Workout with my Zoom crew
5. Wim Hof
6. Spiritual Mind Treatment to call in my desires and intention for the day
7. @sunlightensaunas Sauna if I have time
8. Cold shower
9. Make getting ready a ritual by slowly rubbing lotion and oils on my body temple, adorning myself with curated, handmade, quality clothing and jewelry - step out the door feeling my full self to serve humanity and represent my brand as a Beauty Maker.
10. Call one of my close friends to offer support, gratitude or practice a @MamaGena tool on my way to work.
11. Make the world a more beautiful place by being a boss who leads from the feminine as we create beautiful home interiors for our clients @LMBInteriors.
✨✨Feel free to borrow any and all of these tried and true self-care habits I’ve been using and curating for many, many years. Layering quality, consistent self care habits one on top of another is like building up a gorgeous painting, or home interior. It’s how we can fall deeply in love with ourselves. You don’t have to wait till you are 53 like me 🙂 If you start now and you are in your 20’s or 30’s you will enjoy your wisdom years so much more. You don’t need to do ALL of these if you have young children. Maybe you only have time for one or two of them. Don’t worry, your time to yourself is coming! Either way it’s never too late to prioritize you.
✨✨Even with tools there are some days (like this morning!) when I wake up wondering where this filled up version went. But then I remember I’m only one workout away from a good mood. Or maybe a walk in nature, or a sauna with a Wim Hof session.✨✨What are your tried and true self-care habits that help you feel like the queen or king you know is your most alive version? ✨✨ Comment below and tag a friend you know has tools to add.

But there are days when I wonder if I’ll ever feel that way again. Yesterday was one if those days. So I rest. I rest and I wait and I get still. When I get contracted and go inward I feel my soul is asking something more from me. If I honor that quiet tempo which is hard for type A me, then I often find new growth. The gushing geyser is fun, it’s so full of energy but the quiet, slowness is a part of the equation too. Learning to love ALL the phases of me and not just the ones I deem “right”. I’m a doer do when life slows me down I think I’m not optimizing it, but part of optimizing is savoring the slow down. What stories to you tell yourself when you aren’t functioning at full throttle? ✨✨

When we desire to live a woke life with more connection, joy, abundance, opportunity and adventure and we just aren’t sure how to make it happen- that’s when it’s time to create an alter ego. Then we act as if and before you know it you have become that next version. Wash, rinse, repeat. Practice making the process the prize. And it’s as simple as that! No, not easy but definitely simple.//✨✨

I used to hold my voice back thinking the field was already flooded with so much information about how to heal, grow, transform. And then I realized that’s not how it works. ✨✨ humans connect through stories, sharing wisdom. We never know where one thing we say could transform a life. What are you not saying that we need to hear? ✨✨Tell us in the comments below..

Human behavior fascinates me. I love how stories connect us to each other and I love how stories connect us to life. What kind of life are you creating with the stories you tell? A wild, joy filled adventure? or are you spinning tales of fear about the condition of our world? ✨✨We can stay connected to the Source that fuels our creativity by writing stories that keep us empowered or take the victim route and complain about what is, staying stuck in our shitty stories. I’ve got one word for that- boring!!✨✨I thoroughly enjoy watching peoples lives transform when they begin to tell themselves new stories of what’s possible. We don’t have to stay stuck there.✨✨What kind of story do you want to write about how today is going to go? ✨✨I woke up with a story about how hard it was going to be today because I felt a little headache and my eyes were puffy. Then I started doing the behaviors I know will allow me to level up to a more energized place. Meditation, breath work and a heavy dose of lions mane.✨✨One way I like to co-create an amazing day is to choose my self talk carefully. I tell stories to myself with a game called “remember when?”. ✨✨From this lens we can tell the story of our adventurous day or life as if it’s already occurred so we can send out a higher vibration signal. It sounds like this...”remember when I woke up feeling headachy and tired but then I remembered I didn’t want to waste a single day of this precious life so I powered up with meditation and lions mane and went out and kicked ass? I was in such a can-do attitude that miracles started to pop up and the perfect new employee walked through the door, issues with construction resolved effortlessly and my husband found the answer to something that has been plaguing him. It was so uplifting and joyful!” Looking for what you desire to happen is infinitely more productive than complaining about what has already happened. Give it a try. let me know how it goes for you!

May you tap into your highest, most Supreme Self and answer only to yourself and your higher power as authentically as @ruthbaderg did. Be fierce. Be honorable. Be audacious and most importantly be YOU. Thank you Queen for your service. You left the world a better place and you are such an expander for me. ✨✨

It’s never going away. You can ignore it and it will turn into a life of feeling victimized or you can feel it , heal it and live life feeling in love with your beautiful Self. Either one is fine but let’s be clear- it’s up to YOU to change. You can’t control the circumstances but you CAN control your responses by witnessing, owning and healing those triggers. ✨✨One thought leader I follow who wakes me up to how to alchemize triggers into self awareness and compassion is @mastinkipp . If you need to do some deep work and not sure where to start his work is super impactful and easy to digest. ✨✨The most important thing is to not ignore it. The most loving thing I’ve done for humanity is healing my own trauma. There is freedom on the other side and the difficulties of being human never goes away but it does get much easier when we heal the things that trigger us.✨✨#comehometoyourSelf ...
