Blogs to Create New Habits

High Performers

6.25.20

I found that by setting intentions throughout my day, that I was more productive, focused, and joyous. I began by setting the intention of my ‘perfect day’ in the morning. In a perfect world, what would a perfect day look like to you? And I envisioned that day from me getting out of bed to me going to bed. I filled the day with focus, productivity, and happiness. And that is what I ultimately received at the end of each day. I also set an intention every time I began to work on something, whether it was writing a blog, doing homework, or going to practice. Every time I began to work, I envisioned having tunnel vision focus and being highly productive…

Circus Life

5.17.20

Throughout quarantine I have found myself stuck at my desk, doing work, wanting to do something fun during my brain breaks. So, like any other average teen I turned to look at the circus. My favorite, fun brain break has been learning how to juggle during quarantine. Trust me, I know how it sounds. We won’t even mention that I want to learn how to unicycle and love trapezing either. But as unusual and strange as all this sounds – like I want to run off and join the circus – it’s incredibly awarding and beneficial as it is fun. Not to mention, it’s a great party trick that will leave your friends in awe. One of my favorite benefits of juggling, is that people who juggle quite literally, have bigger brains…

The Breath of Sleep

5.14.20

Today I wanted to talk about two vital things, breathing and sleeping. In today’s blog I am going to let you in on a few of my secrets that help me feel revived and excited about each new day. Let’s first talk about deep breathing. By taking deep, full, conscious breaths throughout your day you can increase your focus, productivity and mood drastically – it’s actually crazy how effective this is. So, try every hour-or-two to take a few deep breaths, not only is it stress-releasing but it will clear your mind of any fogginess helping you to focus on the task ahead. On top of the 2-3 deep breaths I take hourly, I do Wim Hof’s breathing technique at night before I go to bed…

A Reflection of a Yogi's Journey

5.3.20

This week I thought I would take you on a journey of reflection. A few days ago, I finished my first 30-day yoga challenge, with “Yoga with Adriene”. I began this journey because I wanted to deepen my experience of being a yogi. I want to master the practice of yoga and teach it to others as a practice of self-discovery and healing. I decided to use this gift of extra free time that quarantining has brought me, to prepare me for my future goals in life…

The Benefits of Journaling

4.27.20

Journaling has many benefits; it lowers stress and anxiety, it helps create a clear plan and vision of what you want to accomplish in a day, week, month etc. It also is proven to increase your quality of life and happiness levels. You do not need to journal 20 minutes a day to get these benefits, it can just be a quick 5 minute journal in the morning or at night. Most likely you will need to start with less time. Or maybe this is the sign you have been waiting for to scribble words unapologetically on a page for twenty minutes, to free your mind and heart from whatever you were holding on to. Either way, the amount of time does not matter, its quality over quantity, always…

Meditations

4.23.20

Today I would like to shine a light on meditation, as I am a big practitioner and believer of it. Especially during the times that we are now facing, it is important to remain physically, emotionally and mentally healthy. Meditation can help you in all these categories of life depending on what kinds of meditation you are interested in. I personally use meditation to relieve baggage, manifest my future, mantras, ground myself to the earth and connect to a higher power, access states of alpha brain waves (for creative projects and ideas) and to become one with my mind, body and spirit…
