My friend Todd Herman is a sports psychology coach. Topflight. He helps people win Olympic medals. Todd has one of the most encouraging theories on resistance and new habits that I’ve come across.
“Your body is just going through a change, and you’re interpreting it as either positive or negative. Really, what you should do is get excited about [resistance]. The change that needs to happen in order for your new habits to take form is taking hold. It’s taking hold inside your body,” says Todd.
“The most difficult part of the journey is the first sixteen days, but then after that, it’s a piece of cake. We don’t need to think about it anymore. It goes from our conscious mind to our unconscious, or habit mind, where it’s happening automatically for us.”
So, instead of shutting down the new habits when they start to feel unpleasant, we need to shift our attitude toward loving the resistance that arises. Because if we can push through the awkward growth spurt—giving our cells adequate time to catch up with our good intentions—we gain prodigious momentum.
Stay steady with your wanting. On really hungry days you may have to whisper to yourself over and over again, I just want to feel what I want to feel… I just want to feel what I want to feel… reminding yourself that you always have the right to desire something more than what’s currently in front of you. Eventually, how you create your most wanted feelings will become a habit of your true nature—instinctively healthy and self-aware.💛
You are the architect of your own fulfillment—and you have so much to give… and receive.
If you use some extra love to help you stay steady, I made you something called #TakingRoot . It includes a collection of perspectives and prompts to help you dissolve resistance, and a Soulful Habit Tracker to help you keep rocking your new rhythm. It’s full of Love (as always), and… it’s free!😁

Do you ever find yourself wanting to shut off from the world because it is all too much? Seeking out some peace and quiet to get back in touch with yourself & your soul.
No doubt the mums out there are thinking "what even is that; peace?!". What I've come to know, through my interactions with many of you, is that sometimes all we need is 5, 10 or 15 minutes to find ourselves and re-center. .
For me, using my Lavender Peace blend during my meditations, midday naps really aids to achieve deep & sound sleep.
Wanna get better sleep? Feel refreshed when you wake up? Give me a holla so Ican hok you up!

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul. 💗
And I believe the most important kind of freedom is to be who you really are.
Freedom to spend time with people you love. Freedom to spend time connecting to yourself. Freedom to spend time enjoying the life that you want to create.
Freedom inside = happiness. 🌼💕 This is my place of freedom. A place where I connect with nature, myself. A place where I can be still & just breathe.
Freedom for me means doing this whenever I choose. Not being bound by other people’s rules, not working towards other people’s dreams, but creating my own & being clear on the life I want to lead.
What does freedom mean to you?
What is the life you want to create & lead?
Are you looking for more time freedom, financial freedom, more time to do the things you love?
Let’s chat & I can help you too. 🙌🏻 Sometimes you have to let go of what’s normality for you & just be free. 🌻🙏
Based on a True Story by Fat Freddy’s Drop. Joe Dukie’s soulful voice over a mix of dubbed out beats and live instrumentation. The influence of jazz, reggae, funk and electronic beats is prevalent but they still maintain an original and unique sound. This album from 2005 provided the soundtrack to many great chilled out days and two amazing live gigs in Christchurch, NZ. Essential kiwi album. 🇳🇿 Remember Canterbury University! @davebascand @bewoken #nzmusic#dubmusic#nzreggae#fatfreddiesdrop#soulful#aeotearoa#thebirdsleytonstone
