It is when the truth is slapping in the face that you always stop yourself in your tracks. Your all awesomeness start to dip down and you start to be worried, concerned and put yourself in the guilt box. Because you knew. You knew that it was time to slow down, disconnect from the digital world and make yourself as a priority.
Self care is good but Self Love is even better. If you love yourself, you will take care of yourself, if not it’s time stopping, dipping your toes in the distraction sauce and focus on the essential stuff which is only YOU.
Yes, no need to find reasons not to, excuses when your doctor ask you to have an ultra sound to check if you have a disease that you’re not aware.
Was it scary to hear that ? Yes !
Did I go into the drama rollercoaster that my dear ego wanted to ? No.
Did I feel down and needed some time to reflect ? Yes.
Did I change my habits straight away ? Yes
The result of it, today is my last day before to go on holiday for a well deserved break ON MY OWN. Don’t wait until the last minute, listen to your intuition and have the courage to change for good. My friends, Self Care is good but Self Love is even BETTER !
It is particularly at this time that drinking mulled wine, eating comfort food and baking chocolate pie is the right moment !
It took me some time to get back to it. It’s good to learn about the mind, discover new meditations but, but when my body start to be sore due to lack of intense and regular workout, I knew it’s time to get back to it.
Not only my body crave for it but I wanted to have my good sweat sessions to detox my body and my mind. I wanted to feel the effect of the pheromones and be invigorated and energised. I spent a lot of time meditate and the effects of it have been life changing. But connecting with my body daily is also a must…and this is where you identify/ recognise your needs/ your passions that deep down you need to make time for what you love. I love writing and learning and it involve being organised to keep a flow of positivity and not feel bad to have missed doing something.
It is a struggle to find balance between our needs, expectations and self care. It’s taking time, planning, flexibility and kindness to reach our milestones. Most importantly this is where it is crucial to break your goals : having small, intermediate goals will allow you to reach your ultimate goal without any feeling of guilt or shame.
As any person, I need to feel that I am moving forward my goals, whatever the steps are small or big, the most important is to have the feeling to getting closer to your dreams.
So with this is mind I am back to move my body with Tracy Anderson to feel alive, dynamic and energised. This is not a race, this is a commitment to connect with my body in a healthy manner to feel good. And I have another motivator… I will tell you more about it next week! Have a good day beauties !

One time it didn’t come as usual and it practically ruined my day…for me to reverse the situation and buy it illico presto to enjoy it at last.
I think it’s the first time ever I am so overjoyed, happy to know that with it, I am going to learn more about myself, discover new ways to be stronger, wiser, happier and share their new ideas with my tribe and you. It is truly, because of it, start a new adventure where growth mindset and self care are essential for being myself and keep my curiosity for ongoing learning and authenticity.

If you want to unlock your potential and explore new ways of self discovery, Psychologies is the magazine for You!
Always my savior when things unravel, when I can feel that I am getting impatient, snapping, reacting instead of observing and act accordingly.
Yes when I feel that my inner patience is not attainable, I know that I need to meditate, to become centred, more aware and see what are the real reasons of my increasing impatience.
Sometimes like yesterday it’s just the feeling to juggle so many things that lead me to lose my cool. Between work, food shopping, play and look after my bundle of joy, prepare the dinner and find 5 minutes to eat, I really felt that setting up boundaries is necessary to keep my sanity…and meditate to get back my dear balance.
In these moments, we really need to stop running and this is what I did. I sat down and ate, I took the time to do it and my daughter got it and played alone for a few minutes…and this is only what I needed, a few minutes for myself to slow down for awareness and mindful eating. I also wrote my gratitude list and by doing so, I realised that I had a fantastic day and it was only depending of me to keep it that way. We have to make the choice either to run or to stop. In my case, stopping multitasking was the best thing ever because it was unproductive and self destructive for my self esteem. But this is where we all have this ability to get back on our feet, focus on the positive, be grateful and see clearly what our life is : extraodinary, exciting, challenging with so much love.
So if you feel like you are losing control, stop what you are doing, take a break, meditate, go outside, do something you love and write your gratitude list. I am 100% sure that you will feel much more better after this well-deserved break for your self care.
