The wood for the trees. . . . 
Sometimes the details of a situation are ALL we can see - and as we focus upon the minutiae -  we can easily miss the relevance of the whole picture. 
Life is full of distractions that make us lose our way in the forest if 21st century life, getting bogged down in the quagmire of detail, or no longer being able to evaluate a situation clearly, as we are too involved. 
The simple practice of walking meditation, helps to free the mind and begin to consider what the bigger picture looks like. A chance to gain a fresh perspective and focus the thoughts on a positive and desired outcome. -

Regrann from @harvard_business_review -  Being put on the spot during a meeting can be ... uncomfortable. But you can turn it into an opportunity if you’re prepared to speak up and say something useful.
Before your next meeting, look through the agenda and write some questions you have and any points you might raise. If you’re called on, speak slowly and confidently, and introduce your comments with some context so that colleagues know where you are headed. Of course, if someone asks you a question that catches you off guard, don’t be afraid to say you don’t know the answer.
Practice some simple responses for these moments: “I don’t have that information, but I will get it to you by 1 PM.” And here's one more valuable tip: always end by asking, “Did I answer your question?” Adapted from, “How to Respond When You’re Put on the Spot in a Meeting,” by Paul Axtell.

Yay for the menopause! It is a new and exciting phase but it doesn't often feel like that when you are floored by the symptoms.....find your way through. Hypnosis is a proven method for tackling stress, anxiety and hot flushes. Message me for more information.

Before Young Living, I didn’t understand all the ways these oils can be used! I need to go to work soon, and I’m so happy I have a little soothing arrangement to prepare me for the days adventures 💗 Frankincense has become a favorite🌸

🔥SUGGESTIONS FOR SELF CARE🔥
-
Health is not only nutrition and training, it is also taking care of yourself. 🍽
-
This includes allowing yourself some rest, getting checked regularly at the doctor and planning fun things for yourself.👨🏼‍⚕️
-
Keep life fun and take care of yourself. Otherwise you can eat as healthy as you want and train as much as you like. 😨
-
But it still won't give you the happy healthy life that you expect from it. You have to do some self care as well!☺️
-
And this can easily be forgotten with busy jobs, social life and having to take care of another million things. But try to prioritize this!💪🏼

Sometimes cigars with the girls is what you need after a long week. #adventureswithnilda #stressmanagement #cigars #withmygirls #chillaxin #weekendvibes
Everything is so much hard work when you're tired. My clients tell me they don't have time to do what they need to do because they're just to tired to be efficient and I say to them - "Are you sleeping well and regularly?"
.
Usually the answer is no because they're sooo stressed out and they have far too much to do, so I remind them....
.
Good sleep will give you the energy to tackle your day head on and be the efficient person you know you can be.
.
It's not Snooze and You Lose, It's Snooze and You WIN!

🧡🧡🧡 Yesterday I took my son to the park to have a run and play. He really needed it after our long flight🌟🌟🌟. We've had a full on start to our trip to Spain, arriving 10 hours late with delayed and cancelled flights, delayed luggage, and of course, the usual full on Spanish family welcome (I'm used to it now!) 😉😄 Yesterday, for the first time, we stopped to take a breath and pause in the moment.🌟🌟🌟 After his play,  my son was sitting in his stroller and we took a few moments to listen to what the present moment was offering us. Once we paid attention,  we could hear cars, birds, someone building something,  music far off,  an airplane above, a dog barking in the distance...it's incredible what you can hear once you stop to listen. 🌟If you take a moment right now to listen to everything around you,  what can you hear?🌟 The hum of life. If you can become aware of it without getting involved in it,  you will calm the nervous system and most likely gain perspective on anything that is troubling you, because it is a reminder that you are alive 🧡🧘‍♀️

Functional medicine is considered the future of medicine and we seek to continually treat the underlying cause of a disease and not simply it's symptoms. We take into account that these elements can include physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and spiritual factors. We are bombarded with numerous stressors in our everyday lives, for instance, relationship stress, which can be with our significant other, family and friends. 
It's important to identify these types of stressors, so we can better address our patients and work with them in order to make healing possible.

“He who lives in harmony with himself lives in harmony with the Universe.” The Earth element represents our center of gravity. It is the axis from which everything else–our dreams, our career, our relationships–orientate from. A home with a strong center gives us a sturdy base. Summer was intense, the qualities of Earth can help us find our balance again. If you have lost a sense of serenity, want to reestablish harmony or aspire to feel whole again, I believe these five insights that I have culled from Professor Yun Lin’s teachings will you help you realign with your purpose and regain your peace of mind. http://shenmenfengshui.com/the-restorative-power-of-harmony/

A memory popped up on FB today with one of my first videos.The start of It all. It reflected when everything changed for me.

Do you remember your aha moment?

I was coming out of the grips of depression and the power it held over me. I wanted to help other woman beyond my blog. I was changing. People and resources started coming into my life to help me heal and share with other woman. It has been an amazing journey so far.

I saw what stress and busy was doing to me and other moms. Busy is promoted with ideas of how to get more done and in less time. It's leading to burn out, low worth and a one size fits all approach. People think differently. They have health issues and other challenges to add to it all.Its not one size fits all and we need to know and remember our worth.That we are enough.❤ Since then: I started my FB group Motivated Mamas. Link in bio 
I started a business to help busy moms navigate through chronic stress so they can create their best life without guilt and build resilience in themselves and their children.  I also started a book. Resources and people keep coming too for both my business and book. I tell you I didnt see it happening this way while still living with Chronic illness. 
I can't wait to see what the next year brings and looking back a year from now.

How have things changed looking back a year? How will they change a year from now?

Imagine a rock the size of a tennis ball  bouncing off a truck going the opposite way, a rock coming at your windshield at what amounts to 130mph.  C).

[밀가루의 문제가 아니었다...]
이제 거의 한달동안 여드름 때문에 밀가루, 당도가 높은 음식 (가공식품)을 아예 안 먹었는데 이번에 강릉 가서 엄청나게!!! 힐링을 했더니 턱드름이 다 가라앉고 피부도 전반적으로 건강해 보이는거 있죠! 최근에 생일이라서 케이크도 먹고 밀가루 음식도 안 먹다 먹어서 피부가 뒤집어질까 걱정을 했는데 아무런 일이 일어나지 않았어요...😅 역시 스트레스가 가장 큰 원인이었나봐요! 근데 스트레스 관리가 제일루 힘든데 어떠카죠😭 여러분 일상에서 할 수 있는 스트레스 관리법 공유해주세요!! 제바류🙏

When I went on a mini vacay this week, I de-stressed HARD (as you can tell by how relaxed and at peace I am in this photo😆) and my skin got SO MUCH BETTER👏 It was my birthday this week and so I had a bit of cake (less than usual😇) and lots of yummy delish food (=white flour based food) and I thought I would break out hard since I had stayed away from those  for quite some time but nothing happened - NADA😀 Although having a healthy diet is important for the overall health and does play some part, I guess stress was the biggest culprit which kinda sucks cuz stress management is the hardest😫 Let me know how you guys deal with stress on a normal basis, por favor🙏 .

Long post but worth it, I promise. 
It’s funny. I get all excited 😆 about wearing smaller clothes or fitting into clothes I haven’t in a long time, but then I go somewhere where I’m surrounded by thinner people and my confidence and self image takes a dip. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have a cupcake 🎂 and feel like everyone is judging me like “look at the fat girl eating all that sugar” or “and she calls herself a wellness coach” and that narrative starts running in my head. And that’s the thing. It’s in my head. It’s all me. Everyone is eating th same cake and ice cream and could really care less about me indulging. 
Now normally, I’d let this self bullying just completely derail me: Have the cupcake, judge myself, throw my hands in the air and get derailed for a week. Or weeks. Or a month. Or more.

Today, I enjoyed the cupcake and ice cream, came home and started planning out my meals for the week.

I started to hear that voice try to creep in and I’m just choosing to build myself up rather than tear myself down and sabotage the progress I’ve made. 
I’m getting my curves back. 
I’m getting my confidence back. 
I’m LIVING my life. 
Friend, I’m here to tell you that we are our own worst enemy. That voice in our head is just the enemy trying to keep us from becoming the fiercest of warriors. 
So do something today that will move you toward progress. It doesn’t need to be perfect, it just needs to happen. The smallest step forward will continue to build your confidence and before you know it you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

It was such a beautiful day outside so we all went to the park. We all had a great time playing soccer and football. I'm surprised I still have my moves.

Private Retreat of comfortable silence. This sunday I NEED to retreat into my personal space and unplug from the matrix. I have always been dreaming about going on a retreat in an exotic place and healing there...However this might not always be realistic when time and resources are limited, so I figured out a way to retreat in my own home. And I will share these steps with you now. First I will unplug all electornics (yes your phone as well), exept for my kitchen supplies. I will only use candlelight and nothing else for lightning. Very improtant. I will sleep in, with earplugs & a sleep mask. Then I will do thounge scraping and oil pulling. I foam roll and do some yoga. Then I will start a tea ceremony and meditate deeply with no time limit. After that I will turn on nature sounds on a divice (only use it for the sounds) I prefer japanese forest sounds, because I just can't possibly stand the sound of my city. Dry brushing, ayurvedic Abhyanga and mineral bath following (working on my own formula right now). The rest of the day will be spend with cooking noutritious high vibe food, breathwork, reading books by masterminds, stretching, face masks, eating in bed, more meditation and journaling, reading my horoskope, drinking tons of infusions and getting clear on my manifestations. It does not need to be the fanciest place on earth to get healing. Healing can happen anywhere, because it happens within you. Happy sunday everyone, see you next week. #retreat #bali #forestbathing #ayurveda #yoga #meditation #healingbath #sundaymood #meer #selfcare #selflove #wellnesssunday #selbstfürsorge #gesundheitscoach #gesundessen #oceandip #teaceremony #berlincreative #naturopath #heilpraktiker #mentalhealth #stressmanagement #breathwork #holistichealing #aip #hormonehealth #circadianrhythm #ganzheitlich #consiousliving #darmgesundheit

Your version of happiness, isn’t going to look like everyone else’s. What makes someone else happy, could cause you stress. Feel free to share & RP. Try writing down the diff versions of your happiness, but not as what others would define that by. If there was no limitation, no obstacle, what would that look like? Because while there will be obstacles (that’s life’s balance), you can attain your version of happy. Just have to know what it is you’re headed for. #happiness #selfhelp #spirituality #energy

Recently, both my husband and I have been using Valor to keep ourselves grounded & to assist in reducing stress. I love YL’s roller bottle because it’s so easy to reuse and refill, which I have a feeling well be doing a lot of this in the next couple of months!

SMUDGING // my mom has been smudging with sage for as long as I can remember...lately I’m starting to get more into this practice myself. I’ve recently been burning sage almost daily to cleanse my space, and myself, from negativity. .
I’ve had a busy few weeks at work these last few weeks and burning sage was one of the practices I’ve been experimenting with to manage my stress and empower myself to get through. .
Do you burn sage? What are you smudging rituals?

52. Pace down, find a rhythm where you can FLOW. .

This will give you insights you wouldn’t be able to capture/process, have you been mindlessly taking action on every single thought you have, rushing through life. .

Think of it as the runner who, instead of sprinting at the start of the race, knows him/herself and has learned to control its own ideal pace on all stages of the race: the climb ups, the downhills, up until the finish line. Think about the finish line, and then take the time and necessary steps to get there as the most contemplative winner.  #dasbasic

Don't keep doing the same thing and expect to get different results. Sometimes you have to make a change to get a different outcome.

34 weeks ago, I had posted about women's periods as a self care opportunity.

The positive feedback I received about it was by far more than the criticism, yet it made me feel uncomfortable to an extent.

The issue itself is not very welcomed in my culture, and people would rather convince themselves , including women, that periods don't exist. But the way I presented it, elicited some resistance from women of other cultures as well. 
However, I did not take that post down for I believe in every word I write and it is very normal to have conflicting opinions about anything.

Today I woke up to a comment on that same post from the lady who criticized it the most; saying she intended to revisit her thoughts about it. She mentioned that she often thought about my words although she did not agree with them. And then openly shared her story leading to a point where she eventually believed in what I was saying in that post.

And though I had forgotten all about it, but her new comment made me happy and proud to have planted that seed inside her thoughts. These seeds grew at their own pace, in accordance with her own evolution journey.

So I realized that even if I inspire just one woman to move closer to her highest good,then I know I have done my job well. That is what I want to do. 
I want to inspire women to love all that they are, starting with their bodies.

I want women to wake up to their true power by discovering their hidden treasures and learning all that helps them rise to that level within themselves.

Through acceptance or resistance, I want to lead you into the truest version of yourself, and to inspire you to keep learning and growing even beyond anything you have ever imagined; because darling, I believe in you.

One of the most common factors I routinely assess when working with a client, in addition to training, diet or cardio, is stress. In a chronically stressed client, with elevated levels of cortisol, the body is essentially working against you – holding onto bodyfat, limiting lean muscle growth and negatively impacting several other key systems of the body including digestion and nutrient absorption. 
_
1- Cortisol can make fat loss challenging. When you have elevated cortisol levels, your body thinks it needs to store belly fat so that it will have easily accessible energy in anticipation of more intense stress.
_
2- Too much cortisol also hurts muscle growth because it increases the rate of protein breakdown and can decrease the rate of protein synthesis. And muscle growth depends on the difference between protein synthesis and breakdown. 
_
Strategic supplementation can't replace sound lifestyle, nutrition and training choices but something like Cort-Eaze from @nuethix_formulations can really help give you an ache. Cort-Eaze contains Ashwagandha and Suntheanine L-theanine. These ingredients support overall wellbeing and mood by balancing stress hormone production from the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. 
_
Another crucial component of Cort-Eaze is Relora, which has been found to help blunt cortisol release. Studies have demonstrated that Relora helps to lower morning cortisol (a marker of adrenal stress), increase salivary DHEA, manage stress-related eating, and help manage body weight. 
_
Cort-Eaze also contains key stress support ingredients such as phosphatidylserine and rhodiola root. These ingredients are scientifically proven to help relaxation, support healthy cortisol secretion, alleviate fatigue and anxiety, and reduce stress related water retention.

NEXT PLACE DAY

A day randomly walking though Centennial Park and we discovered these beautiful swans with their cygnets.  I love unplanned days that unfold organically.

As a Psychologist, I often observe a link between life stagnation, risk aversion, low levels of interconnectivity, boredom and life dissatisfaction.  Life can seem repetitious and uninspiring when the "can't be bothereds" take over.  Research has supported the notion that pleasant life experiences can boost mood and are a buffer against depression.  Many clients say that it feels onerous to incorporate pleasant stimulating activities whilst in the grip of stress or a mental health crisis. Yet I notice that most people intuitively know what action would improve their quality of life, but don't make self caring choices.

I often set my clients homework to empower growth & change, let go of being in control or improve their mood.  One fun option is to have a "next place day". The idea is to start at one known place ( e.g.. eat breakfast at Y cafe), then randomly chose the next few places (let's go left, or jump on this bus, or walk into this museum). Much like we often do when we travel.  Spontaneous & curious choices, versus predictable routines or goal oriented actions.

My clients often report that it creates momentum for change, is enjoyable & creates positive mood states.

NATURAL BENEFITS

Psychological research has shown that access to green spaces, nature-based wellbeing interventions, or a walk in a nature setting, all led to increments in positive affect and better mental health.

A meta-analysis of 32 studies compared the effect of exposure to natural environments and urban environments, and found that exposure to natural environments had a moderate association with higher positive affect (McMahan & Estes, 2015). Reported contact with nature in childhood has also been linked to lower symptoms of depression in adulthood, likely due to the repeated use of nature through development as an emotional regulation strategy (Snell et al., 2016). Overall, studies on the psychological benefits of exposure to nature show: ☺reductions in stress levels as measured by cortisol levels and self-report
☺reductions in levels of anger, stress and fatigue
☺greater positive affect and lower negative affect
☺reductions in symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children
☺increases in happiness.

CAFFEINE AND THE BRAIN ☕

I saw this quirky clock in a Leura shop in the Blue mountains and it made me think of my own love of a good  morning coffee, and those that over indulge in caffeine.

Caffeine is a stimulant drug often used to improve mental processing. There are many effects of caffeine on the brain, as well as psychological effects. Caffeine blocks the neurotransmitter (NT) adenosine's receptors, increasing excitability in the brain. Caffeine also influences other NT's including norepinephrine, dopamine, and acetylcholine. These have effects on mood & mental processing.

Caffeine increases alertness, & many people find that their mood improves because they feel slightly more alert. Unfortunately, as with all stimulants, it also increases anxiety. This is problematic when some people increase coffee consumption during times of stress, as it only stimulates more vs relaxes.

If you use a lot of caffeine—more  than 3 cups of tea or coffee per day—it may be negatively affecting your health, so lowering your intake is worth considering.
