❇️Confession! I’m one of THOSE people 😱😱. I’m obsessed with all things Disney. I went for the first time when I was a teenager and the magic of Disneyland captivated me ✨ Since then I’ve visited Disney world and Disneyland as often as possible. Next week I head to Disney World and I am SO excited!! Where are my fellow Disnerds?! 🙋♀️🙋♀️
Day 7 of 80DO -foam rolling ✔️ First week is in the books! WHOOHOO! This foam rolling was amazing! Even though I was improvising on a swimming noodle 🤣🙈I was still feeling all those sore tender spots in my muscles and I’m sure it’ll be even better with a true foam roller! I am absolutely blown away by this program already and so excited to see where it can take this Mom Bod! 👊🏻 #trustingtheprocess#believeinthemagic#hurtssogood#sosore
Happy Sunday - GO VIKES! 🏈 #skol#skolvikings#purplepride
Magic... magic may mean different things to different people... perhaps for you it may mean coming out of your comfort zone and trying something new... a new route to work, a new food, a new way of doing things... and yet for others it finding someone or something you really connect with.. finding a book that feels really talks to you...realizing you are enough, finally knowing your worth and not willing to settle for less.., so many moments, possibilities and opportunities that are magical ✨ I hope today you will live in the moment and realize that you are capable to make magic happen. Have a magical day✨. #magical#magicallife#magicalmoment#takecareofyoursoul#takecareofyourself#southflorida#miamilife#beliveinmiracles#believeinthemagic#believe#faith#namaste
Neurogenesis - what does this mean?
The birth of neurons in the brain.
The part of the brain where this happens plays a key role in learning, memory and cognitive behaviours such as anxiety, depression, addiction and also neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and alzheimer's. 🤓
On learning this I decided to grow more neurons and brain cells to stay happy and to keep my sanity (what I have left of it anyway! 😉) So I am challenging myself to do different things. Things I have not done before. 🙈
(To make the changes in your brain, it is about making changes in your life! eg. get rid of habits. For example, we all usually tie a specific lace on our shoes first? - so instead start to tie the other shoe instead, change it up each day. If you take a certain route home but there is another way, then take the other route - change it up! Get rid of those habits and comfort zones. 👀) Learn something new! 🤗
Challenging your mind and body will create these new neurons.
So join me in the monthly challenge.
Do something or learn something new and different for each month of 2018.
I only began mine yesterday.
I took part in a yoga class -
And I loved it! It was definitely challenging and I could almost feel the new brain cells growing. The way I had to stretch my body and balance.....and remember to breath! 😥
My brain/body was almost fighting for survival so it had other choice but to sprout out a new neurons and get on with what I was forcing my body to do! 🤣
So let's all stay happy and sane.
And enjoy it!🤘 Namaste 🙏
This was taken during a full Moon. And altho we have a new Moon tonight and you cannot see New Moon's I wanted to remind us all of the Magic of the Universe. I was blessed at this very moment to capture a Shooting Star!! ☄ And I exposed it to see it more clearly, as I happened to have my phone out. I was born of this.., belief that there is something greater than us. And being reminded here how precious this moment of exact timing was for me! How blessed I was., am for all the gifts that God has bestowed into my Life. As hard as times can get, and I've definitely had my share of battles, I don't ever lose faith of the Magic that will again come. Today's New Moon is a time to release what's done is done. And I know what I will bring forward what I have been working on so hard, what I am manifesting in my life. Will Come.. ❤☄🌚⭐✨ #mooncycle#newmoon#givethanksforlife#servantofgod#believeinthemagic#releaseandrenew
The sun is shining, making everything brighter and so much better. No matter what I’m going through I always try to appreciate the little things and to look around me for a reminder of how beautiful life can actually be if only we stop to notice.
Life is hard.
Life is unfair.
Life is painful.
But life is also magical.
Life is full of beautiful moments.
Life is overwhelming in the most amazing ways.
Each one of us is special and we are all here for a reason.
We don’t have to do anything profound like become prime minister, or discover a new species, or be a self made millionaire.
The fact the we wake up in the morning every day is a miracle in itself. And each day is full of new possibilities and the chance to make a difference. Even if it as simple as bringing a smile to someone’s face.
Life could be a whole lot better, that’s true...
...But it could also be a whole lot worse.
The power is in your hands to choose which you focus on.💪🏻💫💖 #life#lifeisbeautiful#believeinthemagic#believeinyourself
