How to RE-START

restart.jpg

“WELCOME BACK!”

We’ve all heard that term before and sometimes you can catch a hint of, “Where have you been?”

More often then not there’s questions, wonderment & even concern, but often we hear judgement.

Take fitness classes for instance; you start off strong and somewhere in the middle a distraction pops up then you stop. You want to go to class but you’re concerned about what others will say or think about you.

WHY?

Why do we assume the worst? Honestly… what’s wrong with our brain? Are we self-sabotaging?

First of all nothings wrong with your brain but a few adjustments might need to happen to your thoughts. Let me rephrase, “Stink’n think’n will hold you back.”

Now that we’ve cleared the path, by identifying the clutter [stink’n think’n], let’s dive into the title of this blog. So if you’ve ever set a goal and failed, no worries, because this is how to re-start after a break.

I am open to receiving good things into my life.
Good things are meant to happen to me.
I deserve unconditional love.

#1 Ignore Negativity

From self-talk to nay-sayers, just ignore them. In my eBook, Walk In Beauty, I share strategies to help you realign and re-fresh your thoughts.

TIP: Create a Pinterest board with positive words and quotes. Commit to reading them daily. Here’s an example.

#2 Move Your Body

Sitting still in negative thoughts is counterintuitive to reaching goals. So if you have a desire to tone-up, sitting in a pool of failed attempts will not serve you.

TIP: No matter what type of goal you have commit to doing one [1] thing daily. That’s one small step towards _______. [You name it.]

#3 Feed Your Soul With Happiness

Don’t wait for someone to make you happy or give you purpose. Get around happy people, reflect their joy and create purpose

TIP: Write down several reasons as to WHY you’re glad to re-start a project or fitness challenge. Post it on your fridge and read it daily.

#4 Allow Nature To Inspire You

How many times has it rained, stormed and thundered? Yet a tiny seed finds a home then sprouts a leaf. Nature has to overcome human occupation and it never relents. Mother Nature is an amazing resource of strength.

TIP: Grab a planner, I use a Make Mahalo Planner, then head outdoors. Feel the sun, breeze or raindrop on your skin and create a plan-of-action.

#5 Think “Longevity”

We mistake failures for death. We fail and assume that the dream or goal is dead. Often sweeping it under the rug of unfulfilled ideas. However, life goes on. A failed attempt is just a minor set back.

TIP: Adjust your plan and swap your schedule around. Make TIME, don’t wait for TIME. Because TIME is eternal, it never ends.


REVIEW

  1. MIND - Ignore Negativity

  2. BODY - Move Your Body

  3. SOUL - Feed Your Soul With Happiness

  4. NATURE - Allow Nature To Inspire You

  5. ETERNAL - Think “Longevity”


Fortunately each of the five areas mentioned come from the, “5 Realms Of Beauty” a teaching format which is written into Walk In Beauty. There are so many details that would not fit in a blogpost, which is why I wrote the eBook. Also, if you purchase the eBook it comes with printable[s] for every chapter. It’s sort of a workbook/manual to guide you on your journey.

ONE MORE THING

Keep looking up, things will get better. Mahalo for reading and please share this post with someone you care about. Let’s build a fit community together.

How to FEED your Mind, Body, Soul & feel content.

IMG_6091.JPG

I'm going to keep it plain and simple. In fact I'll share the entire point of this blogpost in this first paragraph. You feed/nourish your Mind, Body & Soul through habits & rituals.

The end.

Okay, I'm not really through because I have some pictures and a few videos to share, in fact producing these two minute videos took all of two hours each. [WHY] Because I was in the middle of my habit when I realized, "Geez I should take a picture of this!" 

I'm not going to explain why you need healthy habits or the purpose of a ritual, since I've written about it before. You can click on the highlighted words above.

Habits become a part of your subconscious living. Rituals become a part of your soulful living.

FEED YOUR MIND

I know this might sound cheesy but yo have to nourish your mind with positivity, inspiration, daily motivation. The same way our bodies need hydration your mind requires a healthy heaping of good thoughts. No one, not even Oprah, can exist without connecting, hearing or repeating something positive. What feeds your mind? [comment below]

FEED YOUR SOUL

I do this thing called, "mad art" where I shut out the world and create like MADNESS. I don't stop to take pictures of my creation process and rarely share what I make. [WHY] Because I set apart this time to nourish my soul. Art, for me, is a private moment to feed my soul through colors, textures and art supplies. Come to think of it art and nature share the spotlight in this arena. What feeds your soul? [comment below]

FEED YOUR BODY

We misinterpret this so much but never on purpose. There are industries who thrive upon our misinformed ideas concerning food. "Eat salt, don't eat salt" the list is endless and it will always contradicts itself.  I started a FIT-FOODIE Program to help my fitness members reconnect to FOOD and not fads. It is important to create habits around this area of your life because it will sustain the other two areas. Your mind and soul will excel in rituals of self-respect and self-expression but it is your body that requires a dedicated habit of self-care. What feeds your body? [comment below]

5 TIPS TO FEEDING YOUR WHOLE BEING

  1. Get your habits in check. Find out what is serving you and what isn't. Watch the tutorial and download my habit tracker here.
  2. Create rituals around the SOUL nourishing moments in your life. Do you start your day in prayer or end with a gratitude journal?
  3. Schedule your inspiration! Nourish your MIND on a weekly, even daily basis. Because the mind is a terrible thing to loose.
  4. Slowly adapt habits that will improve your BODY. Take time to introduce these habits so that your lifestyle will become accustom to it.
  5. Influence someone else through your consistent self-nourishment. Your example will speak volumes to someone else so just keep swimming. [Dori's the ultimate positivity guru.]

The contentment happens when you're doing 1-5 on a regular basis, all of your needs are taken cared of. Therefore you have more energy, time and health to serve others and make a significant change in this world. Ready to feel content?
