👒👒// when visiting a friend feels like a mini retreat, you know you are in the presence of an intuitive teacher 🌟🙏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
for 3 days we frolicked around sun-kissed fields of East Sussex, slowing down to stare at bees on blooming flowers, laying in the grass watching clouds above us, chatting about all the juicy parts of life, sharing mindful meals, and plenty of r&r 💤🧘🏼♀️
I took the train back to London feeling renewed, inspired & more grounded... the latter has been a challenge since flying high on a fruit detox 🧚♀️🍉🍊
I met @emilyreedyoga in May 2016 on her retreat at a magical farm in the hills of Andalusia, Spain. there was a last minute opportunity for me to attend & it ended up being so much more than I expected. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
from sunrise yoga to sunset meals, she shared her living, breathing knowledge of yoga + Ayurveda with thoughtful intention infused into the flow of each day.
I learned practices on her retreat that are still part of my wellness routine over 2 yrs later (sesame oil foot massage before bed !) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you’re feeling called to go on a metamorphic adventure 🐛🦋, she’s hosting a conscious living retreat in Jordan this October w. Vedic astrology🌙 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
& a New Years Ayurveda immersion in India where she has studied for the past 8 years. for Londoners, she has local offerings as well. I’d be at every one if I could !
thank youuu dear Emily I am most grateful for our times together xo 🌸✨💗
This isn't pretty but here we are - one week post-op. The insane swelling & bloating is FINALLY going down a little...and the nausea is starting to subside 🤗 This recovery is just as miserable as I thought it would be but hopefully, after YEARS of suffering, this leads to some pain relief in the weeks and months to come 🙏🏻 For any other ladies who have had this surgery, I'd love to hear your story/experience! Let's join forces against the horrible, unspoken disease and gain awareness for the millions who are suffering everyday without answers 💛 #EndometriosisAwareness
Full story going up on my blog later this week - stay tuned 💛💛
I needed a filter to make me feel a little more comfortable of posting a pic without any makeup after 2 days of only 2 hours of sleep per night. I keep getting messages saying that I must be having so much fun. Yes, I am because I am learning about a passion of mine. But this picture shows the reality of my journey at this current moment. Haven’t slept more than 2-3 hours for several days now. At the same time, to give some TLC to my skin I am going to go about my days without makeup. So yeah, I can’t wait to be where I want to be, but here is a glimpse of my attempt to smile and keep going. So just because I post pictures of myself smiling doesn’t mean I don’t have days where I question my decisions and my stamina. Becoming a physician is one rollercoaster that can only be experienced because while it has its gut wrenching moments, the beauty of it is picking yourself every time you get knocked down and those moments when you look back and have a smile knowing that you overcame that obstacle that not too long ago, seemed like it might break you or maybe it did and you weren’t sure if you could bounce back. So now matter what, it is not the end of the world. Pick yourself back up. If it seems like no one is there to support, I’ll be your cheerleader! You got this! Show ‘em how it is done! #motivation#mdtobe#mdjourney#futurephysician#medschool#medstudentlife#futurepa#futureMD#futureemt#futureRN#bossbabe#keepgoing#yougotthis#futurephd
