Wanna win the battle of the slouch?

 Did you know that most people sit for more than 8 hours everyday? 

And let’s be real: most of that sitting is actually slouching. So if you spend most of your day working on your computer or phone keep reading!

Lemme know if any of this sounds familiar:
-nagging aches and pains in your body that distract you all day long
-your booty is literally asleep because you sit on it so much
-constantly chasing more energy all day long and then exhausted at end of the day
-you know you could get more done if you didn’t feel so spacey and foggy
-stress, frustration, and overwhelm show up way too often and leaving you feeling stuck and unmotivated

Here’s the thing: I know that you have a lot on your TO DO list and because of that making time to take care of yourself somehow seems to slide to the bottom of the list. Am I right?

I get it!! But what if you had a way to:

-wake up your sleeping booty so you walk tall with confidence
-relax the nagging pains in the neck and back
-tap...

4 tips for working remotely to help you keep your mind sane and your body healthy

The events of the last few weeks have meant major changes for all of us, to say the least! To minimize our contact with others and hopefully slow down and lessen the effects of the corona virus we are now being asked to distance ourselves socially.

And for many of us, this has meant the shift to working remotely from home. As someone who has been doing this for awhile already I would love to offer you some tips to make the best of this experience to keep your mind sane and your body healthy including taking Yoga Breaks throughout the day!

Tip #1: Set up a dedicated work space

No, you can't work from the couch or the bed, you need to be able to sit or stand up properly (ie: stay awake)! This means setting up a dedicated work space at a desk or table so that you can stay upright, alert, and actually get things done. 

Find a spot with good lighting, a proper chair and a surface area so you can lay out all the tools you need: computer, notepad, water, phone etc etc.

Bonus tip:...

Try this powerful Yoga tool for stress relief!

 

You've probably heard that Yoga has lots of tools for stress relief right? IT DOES! 

But if you are feeling so stressed out that your mind is running a mile a minute and your TO-DO list stretches into next month it can be very difficult to sit and meditate.

I can totally relate to that and so can many of my clients! And if that sounds at all familiar to you too I have a powerful tool to share with you called Lotus Mudra.               

                                                                                                                                             ...

Yikes: here's how years of slouching may impact the human body

I'd like to introduce you to someone! Have you met Emma? She is the colleague of the future or what someone is predicted to look like after 20 years of office work.......

                       

It might look like a joke but it isn't. This model was created based on the input of 3000 office workers in the UK, Germany, and France and what they are dealing with currently. They mentioned things that probably sound familiar, such as: 

back pain, neck tension, headaches, eye strain, weight gain, stress, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, skin issues, insomnia, depression and anxiety.

Based on all the info that was shared the researchers created Emma: the colleague of the future.

Doesn't look good does it? Doesn't feel good either since she is predicted to have: a permanently rounded back, carry extra weight, have varicose veins, eye problems, headaches, high cholesterol, insulin sensitivity, and a...

5 reasons to de-slouch yourself and sit up tall right now

Can you breathe normally when you are slouched over? Try it and see.... Not so much right?! 

CRAZY FACT: Your ability to breathe deeply (aka: your vital lung capacity) drops by 30% when you are slouched over in a weak posture.

Here's the thing: whether you realize it or not you likely spend a significant portion of your day in that position. Your body has adapted to breathing in that position out of necessity, but that doesn't mean its very efficient at it. 

Because your abdomen is compressed your diaphragm can't do it's main task of breathing so other back up muscles in your neck and shoulder have to kick in and pick up the slack.

When it isn't moving freely up and down with every breath your diaphragm isn't able to do one of its key other tasks: massaging your heart and abdominal organs. Bet you didn't know it did that right? 

Here's 5 more reasons to de-slouch yourself and sit up tall: 

1) When sitting, your blood flow slows down significantly...

3 tips to make self care a lasting habit

So how did the first month of 2020 go for you? 

I'll admit it was kind of a weird month for me, but I'm settling into my groove again now which feels great. 

If you are like me (and most people LOL) you start the year off with big gusto towards your intentions and then things kinda slow down when routine kicks back in. Sound familiar?

And like for so many people having a consistent exercise, yoga, or meditation practice is often part of the plan each year. Was that the case for you? 

If so, here are 3 tips to help you get into the habit of practicing self care more often:

1) Decide how many times a week you want to do the practice and write it in your day planner at the beginning of the week. Note each time you do it throughout the week so you can see if you met your goal by week end.

2) Schedule the sessions into your planner/calendar as a NON-NEGOTIABLE appointment with yourself! You deserve your attention right? YES!!!

3) Set an alarm in your phone to...
