Alcoholism seems to travel through family generations, even by children of alcoholics marrying alcoholics and raising children in alcoholic homes just as they were. Be aware. Break the chain. Talk to your kids about it too. #alanonfamilygroups #alanon #alcoholism #addiction #selfcare #selflove #childrenofalcoholism #barns #blooms #breakthechains

While I am trying to work on myself now both mentally and physically; This is a reminder to myself to not look into the mirror and see flaws and hate - but to instead look and notice what I have accomplished and what parts of me I am happy about. Time to focus on the progress & love myself along the way 🌸 #selfcare #lifestyle #positivity #staystrong #healthy #selflove #reflections

It’s Good Friday and Im reflecting on the story of Jesus and what this day means. I guess what I take from it is that he suffered just as we do. He despaired just as we do. He took up his burden 🙏 There was darkness - but we know that this was followed by light and rebirth 🌟 It is the same for us - we need to go through the darkness and it can be hard - but there will be light and joy 🌟❤️🌟 #trust #faith #rebirth #spirituality #jesus #christconsciousness #light 🌟 #mindfulness #goodfriday #selfcare #yogalife #meditation #gratitude #beautifulsky #easter #christian #justlove #presence #lovingkindness #awareness #intention #selfbelief ❤️ #courage #bekind #kindnessmatters

If you'd like to win this pendant lovingly #handmade by me, all you have to do is our giveaway- I've teamed up with @edoxia to give one winner a scrumptious package. (See last post for details) follow our pages and tag some friends telling them your self care rituals 🌝 My self care looks a little like this ~ when I get the chance I like to run myself a hot bath, light some essential oil scented candles and add some drops of oil into the water+ some dried flowers. I enjoy a warm mug of tea ( especially on a rainy day) and to sit in solitude to drink it. I cook myself nourishing meals & keep my body hydrated through the day. Laying out on the green earth under the trees & breathing in is so good for the soul 🍃

“First help yourself then help the world.” For many, the first thought when hearing this quote is that it is Selfish. For all those hardworking, self-less individuals out there I ask you to please consider this: Do you find yourself feeling worn out, unfit, or just generally unwell? If you don’t have energy and a foundation of wellbeing HOW will you be able to contribute to the people and things you care most about? First and foremost, take care of YOU. It doesn’t have to be a revolutionary life plan. Get more sleep. Get better sleep. Drink more water. Eat a bit less sugar today. Take a couple deep breaths. Find small ways to ✨be well✨ You CAN feel better and massively impact this world! The world deserves to have the best version of YOU! Focus on feeling GOOD in order to maximize your potential to DO good. #selflove #selfcare #beautybloombliss #priority #healthylifestyle #fillyourcup #inspiration #motivation #wellness #grow #shine

EASTER DONUTS 🐣 . Bringing back these bad boys just in time for Easter! Cooking is seriously so much fun and rewarding. I used to hate it, the time it took but I’ve recently been trying to get more creative. Don’t settle for what is quick and easy. Experiment and see what’s possible. Making your favourite foods into macro friendly versions is so much fun. Being a bitching cook can open up some awesome opportunities (aka impress that guy or you friends) + you will save money on eating out 👍🏼 These Easter Protein Donuts 🍩 worked out pretty well! . INGREDIENTS: ▪️1 scoop protein powder ▪️10g coconut flour ▪️15g pumpkin ▪️45g apple sauce ▪️70ml egg whites ▪️2 tsp baking powder ▪️2 tsp sweetener . DIRECTIONS: Mix all ingredients together, spray the donut maker mound and add mix to cook for a few minutes until solid 😉 . SERVES: 3 donuts - 53 calories each (Macros 4C/ 0.3F/ 8.5 P) . SUGGESTIONS: Top with a macro friendly frosting for example cream cheese mixed with cinnamon OR @yopro and mini chocolate chips 🍫

@mygirlfriendvoice

”I am my first priority.” I’m conditioned to give more than I receive. I am a generous nurturer. I have also run myself ragged believing that It was selfish to put my needs before my family’s needs. My needs, wants and desires were secondary. NO MORE. You can agree with me or not but I’m my first priority. My health, my happiness.....it’s my number one. Can you say the same about yourself and be telling the truth? #affirmations #mygirlfriendvoice #over50andfabulous #wisdom #priorities #iam #lovingmyself #selfcare #playingbig #innermentor #innercritic #ihearvoices #priorities #mefirst at Oakland, California

The girl is back... 🙌🏽 Day 2 of #liiftformation for me... missed 2 days due to a stomach bug/bad food. 🥴 But today I got back in the game. A little strength training (back and biceps) 💪🏾 And my fave things: cardio (and @shaunt )😃 I’m excited to see how this combo works for me... how my body changes. 😁 I’m curious: what do you prefer: #cardio or #strengthtraining?? Or a bit of both?? 🤔

Meu painel favorito da última edição da @beautycon, que rolou em NY no início de abril, foi sobre Representatividade na Beleza. Nele, a incrível @nabela comentou sobre a sua relação com as redes sociais, e deu um ótimo conselho: “Sempre que você sentir que está sendo sugada pelo vácuo das comparações das redes sociais, SAIA. Dê um log off, conecte-se com humanos reais, passe um tempo focando em coisas que vc ama. E pratique muito auto-cuidado. Self-care é NECESSÁRIO, não é apenas uma palavra da moda. Você tem que praticá-lo. Você tem que se focar em se amar.” ❤️ Para conferir quais foram as minhas impressões sobre esse que é O evento do mundo da beleza, acesse o site do Cherry Gloss 🍒 (link no perfil ☝🏻) 🎥 @cherryglossbr . . . . . . . . . #nabela #beauty #selfcare #advice #socialnetwork #selflove #selfcarethreads #amor #autocuidado #beleza #autoestima #redessociais #instagram #dica #ficadica #fikdik

Are you looking for some self-care this long weekend? . Could you use a little break from family dinners, easter egg hunts and reenergize with some muscle- and heart pumping fun? 🙌🏼💪🏼 . Note: did you notice that I didn’t talk about burning off the chocolate eggs and big dinner? Yes. Let’s stop that kinda talk now and forever! 😣 Even jokingly. . Eat the food. Enjoy the chocolates. Let’s stop promoting that exercise is punishment or an obsessive necessity because of what you consumed. . End rant -for now 😜-, this deserves a post on its own. . I have a couple of spots left in both my Friday and Monday class. I’d love to see you! Let me know if you want me to book your spot. 💗 . . . . #liveit #liveitfitnessyyc #smallgrouptraining #strengthtraining #onlinetraining #personaltraining #prenatalfitness #postnatalfitness #highfitness #whatsyourwhy #howdoyouwanttofeel #goalsbeyondaesthetics #selfcare #mindfulness #selflove #selfworth #compassion #selfawareness #motivation #growthmindset #empowerment #mentalhealth #yycfitness #yycfitfam #yycnow #yycliving #yyc #calgary

I’m a true Pisces🐠. The Aquarium is my happy place. I love watching all of the varieties of fish, jellyfish, plants, sharks, etc. It’s amazing to see so many unique life forms. We live on a truly amazing planet. I only wish the fish didn’t have to be held in tanks, I’m sure like people they want to be free. Have you ever noticed that some fish even look like people?😂💦🧜🏽‍♀️

Most people develop a set of standard “go-to” coping skills when they are confronted with a problem in their lives. Perhaps you have heard the term autopilot, referring to just falling back on the same skills that in some way feel comfortable but usually don’t help. Usually, these behaviors “worked” in the past, but no longer work in the present. Also, some may continue to “work” in the short term but may be making problems worse in the long term. A few such examples include workaholism, alcohol, drugs, spending money or even promiscuous sex as methods of not having to face problems. Before figuring out healthy skills to use when these issues come up, it is often useful to generate a list of what we have been trying that has NOT been working. Some common “go-to”/“autopilot” problem solving coping skills my clients and patients report are ✅Shutting down ✅Attack/blaming someone else ✅Trying the first thing that comes to mind without thinking through ___ Can you identify some of your autopilot communication coping skills? at West Palm Beach, Florida

This is a big one that I know we ALL put off till tomorrow. Some of us work through our shit better than others, but some of us don't remember what it's like to go on a journey with the purpose of living a life free of internal battles. We need to admit when we have anxiety, inner conflict, conflicts with others, bad thoughts creeping in, consistently unhealthy, or sick. We are powerfu beinhsl and looking back if I hadn't taken on the things in the way I chose to things could be a whole lot worse. If you make a habit of keeping your thoughts in order through practicing good mental health you can be the champion of your life. Sometimes cleaning out the "attic" can look like a big task. But it is rewarding and educational looking at your past and fix up some of the bad habits that are holding you back. And when that attack is cleared out there is so much room for activities!!! We open up space for people in our lives. We find energy, purpose, self love, compassion, kindness, and Passion. And damn does it feel great to live this way. To those who struggle to do this, it's normal and it's ok. I'm not saying you have to do this, but I am saying it's rewarding AND I am saying there's a better way. When the "attic" is all cleaned out it's easy to maintain. Just dust every now and then so you can enjoy the space.

#tbt - three seesters and a Schuyler. Here’s to the friends who say the words that you need to hear. The friends who give you words of love when you need it. The ones who will tell you the truth when you need to hear that, too. Their words hold no motive, no agenda – theirs are just words rooted in honesty, in love. Here’s to the friends who say words of encouragement as many times as you need to hear it. They’ll continue to repeat themselves until you start to believe it. Here’s to the friends that make you listen to the advice that you yourself have given, and ask you to give yourself that same grace. They remind you that your worth is not tied to a singular role, or paycheck, or characteristic. They tell you that your worth is inherent. It cannot be taken away. It cannot flee. It is within you. Here’s to the friends who say the words that you need to hear, the ones who speak your fears and dispel their power. They make the monsters less scary with their words. They remind you that you do not have to be afraid of the monsters, or the dark, or the thoughts in your own head. They say words that will feel like a hug – and they’ll hug you as long as you want them to. Here’s to the friends who say the words that you need to hear, they speak truth into your tired heart. They give you words that will lift you up when it feels like you cannot possibly climb another step. When your well is empty, they pour water back in. Here’s to the friends who tell you how they feel, always. They do not hide behind fear of judgment – for they know they don’t have to, cause your friendship is bigger than pretense, and pretending, and putting on a show of perfection. Here’s to the friends who tell you, I love you. And when your world feels sad, they decide that word are not enough – and they show up at your door, just to sit in silence. Cause sometimes, with the greatest of friendships, words are not needed. Here’s to the friends who say the words that you need to hear. at 79th Street Boat Basin

@the_new_mom_show

Intentional motherhood is being present enough to make conscious choices about how you care for your child. In this season of my life I’m seeing the great significance of going into the hard, painful, uncomfortable places to find my own healing so that I can go with my daughter into her dark spaces one day. I don’t want her to have to navigate the difficulties in life alone, which means I have to go before her so I know how to teach her to stay afloat in the storms. To raise an emotionally healthy human I have to do so much work to be emotionally healthy. If I’m too busy, if I give into the fear(and I’m often afraid), if I choose comfort over the necessary work to move through my own trauma, she will suffer. And mamas, we can’t stand for that. Don’t get me wrong, I’m tempted to live off of ice cream and check out all the time! But it’s time to leave legacies of hope and healing and freedom for our babies. The storms will pass and then we can enjoy the sunrise with them. And the joy, the relationships with our kids will be more whole. I want that. So I’m fighting for that every single day. And I look forward to seeing the fruit of my labor. It’s gonna be so sweet, and my daughter will get to savor the fruit with me. I’m grateful for His grace which makes it possible cuz girl you know I’m too weak to do this alone😆 I’m in it with you. if you need support reach out via email or dm. For more encouragement listen to the episode called “for the hard days part 1” from the last season of our podcast The New Mom Show found wherever you get your podcasts. Link in bio
