I think there is power in not taking yourself too seriously. I definitely feel like it’s a part of a persons DNA 🧬 Not taking myself too seriously has definitely got me in trouble a lot, especially growing up, I just never understood rules and didn’t really want to be apart of the “norm”. I was always distracting others, making jokes, I just wanted to laugh and make others laugh. “Why was everyone taking things so seriously!?” Is the constant dialogue that ran through my mind.
I’ve always been into blazing my own trail and not necessarily giving a sh*t about what anyone thinks. Once you hit adulthood I think those childlike traits fall away and you lose contact with that person you once were.. it sucks! I feel like young me is who I aspire to be more and more everyday. I was fearless, courageous and above all genuinely put myself first without even knowing it! I always followed my gut and went with what felt right for me. Young Loz is making a comeback for real though 👏🏼 SHE IN HERE 🤣
Whoever thinks staying in the same place is easy has never done an isometrics workout.
An isometric contraction is a type of movement where the muscle doesn't noticeably change length and the affected joint doesn't move. For the first 10-20 seconds, you’re comfortable - then the burn creeps in & kills until you break whatever hold you’re in. In every isometric workout I’ve done, I’ve noticed that HOLDING the position is always harder than moving within it. Holding a squat burns MORE than doing squat jumps. Holding a halfway curl burns MORE than doing curls.
These isometric workouts taught me that staying STILL & HOLDING ON to our shit burns us MORE in the long run than just DOING something about it.
When you find yourself THINKING about doing something for months, you’re carrying that weight around with you. The headspace you give it, the resentment you feel towards it, the excuses you have placed around it - that’s the WEIGHT. The longer you THINK about it, the heavier that weight becomes & the deeper the burn goes.
Imagine if you took all the time you spent thinking/complaining/worrying about how you want to get in shape, eat healthier, read more, spend less, make more - WHATEVER - & spent all that time actually DOING something about it. You would have changed your life by now.
While it takes strength to hold that weight up & stand still, it’s not BENEFITTING you as much as PROGRESS & MOMENTUM could. And by making the choice to stay there, you’re PUTTING that pressure on yourself.
STOP THINKING. START DOING.
🌸 10 days binge free 🌸 I can’t quite believe it, last month I couldn’t go 10 hours without binging and I was getting to the end of my tether with it all. I know it’s something I’ll have to manage for the rest of my life, but I’ve just gotta keep counting the milestones 💗

This trip has been so profound in so many ways. I’m leaving here so grateful for every moment, every conversation opening up my heart more. I felt,before going on this trip that my faith was going to be challenged. And it most definitely was in more ways than one. My commitment to prayer and meditation every morning kept me strong tho. And I am leaving here so grateful for what is placed on my heart right now... Throughout this trip, I have been surrounded by people that have opened up to me about their anxiety and depression. Using alcohol and other means to escape that feeling. One saying they don’t want to live. One saying this homeless life is the best they see for themselves, to one who holds a normal job, and I would never guess, telling me he wants to commit suicide everyday. This breaks my heart...There is more depression and anxiety than ever before. And I have experienced it myself. So believe me when I say this.. You are not alone. It is the loneliest feeling one could ever imagine. A lot people are trying to fill this void with external things and there’s only one thing that fills that hole...God. God is greater than it all. Some of the darkest, most confusing times in my life, when I surrendered to God, instead of temporary fixes, have transformed my life.
But God also gave us a beautiful mind to use.. Practice gratitude. Even if you don’t believe it, start telling yourself you are grateful for the smallest things. This trip was so rich with the nature’s beauty and connection with others but it’s bc I’ve trained my mind to truly believe in that beauty! Our mind can be a wonderful servant but a terrible master. And we have to take captive of our thoughts!
Don’t self medicate. It’s interesting when you strip out all the distractions, the busyness, the drinking, drugs, anything you rely on for happiness besides your soul, how much beauty you find in the simplest things.
Accept your emotions and know it will pass! It’s okay to not be ok. Don’t deny what your feeling, but know that you will be fine. It will pass and with every battle that you fight through with integrity, you are getting stronger and stronger! *continued in the comments*
New blog! After I graduated high school, my OCD became increasingly unmanageable. It could be because it stuck around for so long, or maybe because it was present before and after a few personal milestones like attending college and securing my first job post-graduation. Whatever the reason, I survived. Now that I've spent some time in therapy learning how to cope with my OCD, I want to share a few tips that have helped me manage anxiety in high-stress environments like the office or class. Link in bio.
Those with OCD and anxiety - what has helped you manage OCD in school or the workplace?
Practice gratitude by remembering the things we have now were once the things we prayed for. Gratitude is a mindset and a mental state that will bring about more positive things into your life. Positive vibes yield positive results and negative vibes yield negative results... Change your thinking, change your life. 💜🐛🦋💚 #positivevibes #positivethinking #gratitude #grateful #kimlothetherapist #lifebeginsheretcs #changeyourthinkingchangeyourlife #changeyourlife #atlantatherapist #manifest #manifestations #practicegratitudedaily #mentalhealth #mentalwealth

Last night was one of those nights where after waking up at 2pm (coming off night shifts) I could have done one of two things: A) stay in bed or B) get up and go for a run.
Given I woke up after the usual recurring nightmare in a cold sweat and it being the first day where I didn't have any commitments, my brain decided to just dump everything on me at once.
Old me would have formed a cuccoon and stayed put, but I know by doing so it's just going to reinforce the negative behaviours and make it easier to do again - Something which I have had to learn the hard way.
Needless to say, I sobbed the entire run but I just got on with it to have a "mental wash" and be in my bubble, taking on the world. Boy did I need it.
Times or distance didn't really matter this run - this was for my mental health and I was fully in autopilot while I figured things out ❤️
Never forget what makes you happy or even techniques which can help pull you out of a Funk, I did mine and I feel so much better for it! Plus I bloody love this @buffofficial 😂

I love this parable so much, as I think no matter who you are, you can relate to it on some level.
I don't want to keep banging on about the election in the UK but you can see this in action.
A lot of hate, anger, resentment and superiority on display and it's bringing a lot of negative energy to people and ultimately causing bad feelings for many.
We can all strive to be more mindful about doing out best to put out the positive energy into the world. To show compassion, understanding, love, kindness and serenity.
Perhaps most importantly we must remember to treat ourselves with all of the positive emotions and that will enable us treat others that same way.
Have a great day, and remember keep feeding the good wolf ❤️🐺

Not many will know the historical significance of this little bar in Philadelphia, but me and my partner felt that it would be the perfect spot to have a celebratory toast to the closing of a very important and significant deal. The wheels have been finally set in motion and this train has taken off. The crew is all in place 2020 , a few letters ago in which we exchanged as he wrote me while I sat in a federal prison we outlined the plans that today we see come to reality. 2020 a new era time to DOMINATE!

Last week someone told me “you doubt yourself too much.” .
I felt resistance within myself when I heard that. Honestly, I thought to myself, “you’re just telling me something you say to everybody, because that’s not me. Look at all this work I’ve done on myself!” .
But let’s look back at a younger version of myself. I used to chronically self-doubt. I was stuck in this self-perception of never being good enough. The only exceptions were when I received validation or praise. Only then I felt relief that I finally performed well or achieved something. This had me in a cycle of constant chasing, chasing the “evidence” that I was good enough. .
But now I had done all this self-work. I’ve learned a lot. I don’t doubt myself anymore. I’m not the meek and timid younger version of Chalice I used to be. I’m much more confident. .
After giving it more thought, I realized they were right. .
I opened my private practice only a short 15 weeks ago, and finally stepping into this world I’ve dreamt about for years had me stressed. Everything I’ve been working toward the last 10+ years has led up to this moment, where I can finally take what I’ve learned and help the world. That’s when the doubts started subconsciously rolling back in. What if I don’t know enough? What if I’m not ready? What if... I’m just not good enough to be successful?
Then I realized it. This struck me so hard. We all have this inner child in us that comes out during moments of stress and overwhelm. And here she is. #insightislife .
Healing happens in layers. .
Now it’s time to focus on this layer of healing. My last #fullmoonintention of this decade is to focus on noticing when self-doubt starts creeping back in, to allow myself to release it, so that I can become even stronger in the self-confidence that I knew was always in there.
We are constantly becoming more ourselves.
What old thought habits do you slip back into during times of stress?
✨Some things just don't go to plan...✨ ...and that's OK!😆 Can you feel my pain in this pic? (taken by the hugely talented @shuvaseeshdas )
I had this idea of a photoshoot where I looked I control, where I looked smart, glamourous and all those things we love to look like in photos. The weather, on the other hand, had other things in mind!🙄 This festive season It is all too easy to put pressure on yourself to buy the ‘perfect’ gifts for everyone, decorate the house and tree ‘perfectly’, keep everyone in the family happy and entertained… and to keep looking glamorous in your sparkly festive outfit while cooking a ‘perfect’ Christmas meal!
Oh, the pressure! And to make matters worse, all these expectations must be met on a single, 'perfect' day.
Well, I'm calling time out on it!
Comparing your life unfavourably with the perfect lives you imagine other people are leading on Insta can lead to total burnout.
Isn't it time we all stopped trying to be perfect?

Benefit number two if you like. When we think about something that is bothering us on our own, it seems to be the worst problem in the world. We over-think and create future stress by making the problem unsolvable.
What if you opened up your problem or dilemma and another person or maybe 2 said oh yeah that happened to me... I did this, this and this.
Or it took me 2 days to get over it but then something great happened.
Or yeah it happens to me all the time.
How would you then feel, a problem shared is a problem halved.
Let's talk as men and be open and vulnerable as that's where the power is.

If last week’s podcast with @johnnynelsonsky was about emotion & the power of belief, this week is all about education & finding inner peace. It was my privilege to have a man who I consider to be both a teacher & mentor to me @sandynewbigging join @mattjohnsons & I on @thenakedprofessors_podcast . Sandy practices as a Ishaya monk in the Spanish mountains, that means he has spent thousands of hours connecting with his internal wisdom through meditation as part of his practice to live with inner peace. He now helps others to do the same & he kindly sat with us to share how to have a more peaceful mind, & as a result, a more fulfilling life.
During the conversation we chatted about how society encourages us to make ‘doing’ more important than ‘being’. What I mean by this is that we live in an age where we tend to be defined (by ourselves & others) by what we’ve done / achieved, rather than how we feel on the inside. This leads us to chase instant gratification, rather than aligning our behaviour with our deepest values that matter most to us. The net result is we tick a lot of societies boxes, but we miss out on an internal feeling of aliveness & true self love, without these things we’ll struggle to experience true fulfilment. For me this is a key area where we go wrong in hindering our mental health. Inner peace really is the new success in my opinion.
Amongst other fascinating topics around mindset & human behaviour, we also looked at how emotions work. Sandy was the first person to allow me to understand why & how we unconsciously hold onto negative emotions for much longer than we actually need to through unhelpful thinking patterns. This alone is such a key thing to understand if you want to gain more influence on how you feel.
Sandy is a special man with so many powerful insights to share. Once again I’m grateful to share a conversation with someone willing to share so much wisdom on mental health. I hope you both enjoy & learn from this podcast. Link is in my bio & story 🙏🏼
Ps - we want to get Sandy back on to specifically discuss anxiety as he has a huge amount to share on this subject, how does that sound to you?
