Hope you had a wonderful weekend and your Monday is off to a great start! At the beginning of the year, I shared how I am following in Gretchen Rubin’s footsteps and setting out to spend 2015 on My Happiness Project. Really, as I have realized through my Institute for Integrative Nutrition work, I am living out this year with Radical Courage (or at least that’s the goal).
Some things that have happened to me this past month:
-I had multiple interviews at various jobs
-I taught to a class of preschoolers
-I got a new job, a “real” job
-I have spent more time in the kitchen, and have been moving my body in ways that feel good
-I have reframed my inner dialogue, and said kinder things to myself
-I shared my blog to family and friends, which was really scary to me, but felt really awesome at the same time. Thanks for all your support! ❤
This month has really been about building up my self-care practice, finding routine, going out of my comfort zone, and following my intuition.
One thing that I did not end up doing this month (well I have a week left) was volunteering at a local animal shelter. This is something I just never got around to doing, unfortunately, but is still on my radar.
Another thing that I have been working on is getting back into my personal yoga practice. I have been super into Barre workouts (and still am! Went to a class this morning) but I also want to maintain my yoga practice.
With all the self-care and self-love this month, I really am feeling pretty great. I feel stronger, healthier, and I am able to see more beauty in myself. I have noticed a huge confidence change, and I feel really at peace with my body, and my food choices.
I am also working my way through Gabrielle Bernstein’s 40-day May Cause Miracles guide-book to focus on releasing fears and negative though patterns.
All in all, I feel all the work I am putting in, and all the help and support I’m getting from my beautiful coach Amanda Gyuran is deeply changing my life in a positive way.
What are you doing to amp up your self-care and self-love this week? Or what were some of your goals for February and how do they make you feel?
