Nature-Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Hey Lovely Souls,

With weather being hot in some areas this time of year or simply lots to do and he distracted by it’s easy to sort of spend all your time indoors!

This weekends empowerment challenge is to get outside.

Go to the park or beach

Go into your yard (or balcony or patio)

Go for a stroll around your block or community

If it’s too hot sit outside when the warm evenings happen

Just give yourself at least 5 minutes to soak in some nature.

Even if you are a city dweller you likely still have trees or flowers and you definitely have a sky!

Connect with nature even for just a few moments.

Are you in?

Let the words find you… creative prompt

Hey beautiful Souls!

Most of the words above were collected “randomly” over weeks+

I finally sat down with my journal and glue stick and let the messages emerge. It’s a simple journal page that can be powerful.

This week let the words find you and see what messages emerge for you.

Grab a magazine or a few , glue stick, and a journal (or index card or..) and rip out/cut out words that you are drawn to, no overthinking.

Then glue them down , just trust the process and see what unfolds.

Messages-Tuesday Truths

Get it done (or at least started!)- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Hey Lovely Souls!

If you are anything like me, you have some (or a lot!) of stuff that sort of lingers in the space of it needs to be done or I really want to do it and I don’t have the time, space, energy, money etc…

We forget that we have to make it ourselves! I have a list of things that are undone, that linger and tug at me, yet I have not made the time to just get them done or at least started.

That’s my challenge to you this weekend. Start or complete something that has been bugging you, something you have put off. Ok technically the intention for these was to complete something each weekend. But if it’s just not feasible for this prompt then that’s ok the intention is to start to shift the energy around that project, task etc..

It’s likely as soon as you see this post something will come to mind. If it doesn’t however, I have some ideas to spark your list.

Take that donation stuff and drop it off, get the haircut (that’s mine this weekend!), Make that call, try that recipe, get the lab work done or scheduled,  write that post, work on that class, choose the date, print the photos, start the memory keeping project (perfectly imperfect!)

Are you in? What’s your get it done or start it this weekend?

Intentional Connection – Weekend Challenge

Hey Beautiful People!

I hope you are enjoying the Weekend Empowerment Challenges!

With so many devices to stick our faces in (phones, tablets, tv’s) it’s really easy to go there constantly and mindlessly. Most all of us do it. We tell ourselves that we are connecting, and to a degree that might be true, depending on what we are actually doing in these devices. However, it’s also very easy to disconnect from those surrounding us.

This weekend empowerment challenge is: 

Look at those you interact with (in the store, in your home, yes even if you see them every day) and look them in the eyes, slow down to really see them and listen to them, smile at them.

10 in 10 – Holistic Living

Hey Lovely Souls!

We can explore and accomplish (or start) more in 10 minutes than we usually realize.

So often we think that we need to have big blocks of time to get healthier, read more, explore our creativity, declutter. etc…

While big blocks of time are awesome,  they are not always easy to come by (or shall I say to carve out the time for) However, most any of us can carve out 10 minutes (and likely many times throughout the day).

Here are some things you can do in 10 minutes to support yourself in living holistically.

  1. Meditate for 10 minutes (or 5 in am, 5 in afternoon/evening)
  2. Spread paint in  your journal or on a canvas  (or glue images, add some stitches etc.)
  3. Journal, braindump, make lists.
  4. Be still, no looking at the phone. Just allow yourself to be for just 10 minutes.
  5. Move your body, walk around your house, neighborhood, do yoga, dance. Move your body! (if you are currently getting no movement and you can squeeze in 10 several times a week, isn’t that better than nothing?!)
  6. Plan meals for your week, make a menu
  7. Set up your supplements for the week.
  8. Read something inspiring  (book, blog, magazine)
  9. Do a blitz (this can be done in as little as 5) Maybe it’s doing a quick pick up in your living room, desktop (digital or physical!) unloading the dishwasher, wipe down of the bathroom or kitchen, shifting things around your space, putting stuff away. Set a timer and go for it. Don’t overthink it, just start on the space that’s bugging you the most or that you would be able to see the most progress in for that amount of time.
  10. Call and make the appt, check your balance etc. set up reminders on your phone or in/on your planner.

Life IS a special occasion- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Weekend empowerment challenge

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Welcome to the weekend Empowerment Challenge! This weekends challenge is to:

Use something that you have been saving for a special occasion. Life IS that special occasion. Many of us tend to hang onto so many things that we are saving for that “special” occasion.

Your life is a special occasion. The things you have made it through, created, learned this year are things to celebrate!

Maybe for you it’s those fancy dishes, outfit or accessory that is just for “dressing up”, the journal you want to have the perfect words or images to put in.

My challenge to  you is to use something even a little tiny something this weekend. If that thing you have is something you really can’t use right now, my challenge to you is to plan something where you can use it (plan it this weekend!)

Remember , this is for you, so it does not matter if you are “overdressed” to go to the diner or to run your usual weekend errands, it doesn’t matter if the meal on those dishes is for 1. Choose something and just go for it!
