Happy Sunday Funday!  Have you ever seen a poster or t-shirt that says, “Just be.”?  What does it mean to “just be”?  Apparently by existing, we’re being, right?

To “just be” is to participate in the creation of your life as it’s happening by breathing, focusing, and loving.

When we let ourselves exercise patience, we have a greater chance to allow the Universe to unfold in our favor.

I like to make the analogy of watching a pot with water and waiting for it to boil.  You can’t do anything other than be patient and allow the energy to manifest and the water to heat.  Life is the much same.  We can make choices and take actions to create opportunities and circumstance, but we have no control over the outcome.  If we let things be, they will be ready for us when the universe feels we’re ready.

Intention:  Be.  

Don’t try to predict or control the outcome.  Let it be.

Practice patience.

Breathe and then breathe some more.

“My point is, life is about balance. The good and the bad. The highs and the lows. The pina and the colada.”
― Ellen Degeneres

In the healthy living world, we talk and debate about balance constantly, but a balanced life isn’t just about eating and moving in the normal confines our hectic daily lives.  It’s  about living a life where our priorities and relationships receive the care and nurturing they need.  Balance is also caring for yourself so that you can fully care for others.

Sometimes it can feel impossible to “do it all” and the reality is, we don’t need to do it all.  We need to do what is right at the moment and what will bring us peace of mind.  Often, we put off things we need to do because we have so many other things that take more of our attention.  To put the intention of balance into practice, we need to evaluate what we have been making our priorities and ensure that they are in alignment with our goals and needs.  True, at times we have to do what we would rather not, but many of us lead lives that doing things we feel “have to be done” rather than taking a step back and realizing we don’t have to do them.

What do you want to do?

What can you suspend doing right now in your life to give you time to do what you want?

Which of your needs will you meet by making your desire a priority rather than a perceived luxury?

Balance is about experiencing both sides of the coin so that we can truly appreciate both perspectives.

Happy TGIF!  What a week!  So far this week, we’ve created the intentions of laughter, possibility, freedom, and connection.  I’m hoping that you have spent the week laughing more, feeling all things are possible, and focusing on ways you can connect with yourself and other people.

Today’s intention word is action.  

Is there something you’ve meant to do, but just haven’t made time for it?  Is there a change you’re looking to make, but you’re not sure how to approach it?  Your intention of action comes into play as you take the first steps towards what you want to accomplish.

Perhaps you want to start running, knitting, writing a book, or start a course.  Whatever it is you are looking to do, take some time today to figure out what your next step will be or just go ahead and jump right in!

Inaction breeds doubt and fear.  Action breeds confidence and courage.  If you want to conquer fear do not sit home and think about it.  Go out and get busy.

-Dale Carnegie

Happy Wednesday and Day 3 of my February Daily Intentions Workout!  Were you able to work possibility into your day yesterday?  Hopefully, your mindset allowed you to get through all that you needed to do and more!  I know it’s only day two, but isn’t it amazing how much more positively our days go when we are putting intention and energy into our minds?  I hope that you are truly noticing the power of intention already!

Today’s intention is Freedom. What does freedom mean to you?  Is it freedom from self-doubt, money, or fear?  Is it the desire to feel free from resistances within your life or to make the choices you believe you should?  Whatever freedom means to you — work those desires into your day.

Wear that shirt/dress/hat you’ve been thinking about returning.

Apply for a job you feel qualified for and make that career change.

Join a fitness class or group you’ve been thinking about joining for ages.

Do something new and do it because you wouldn’t have normally done so.

Freedom is living a life where there is trust.  Belief in yourself and that the decisions you make are what makes your life meaningful and fulfilled.   Freedom is the comfort in the knowledge that everything is as it should be.

Happy Monday and February, guys! I know we’re all thinking it and saying it, but we’re already entering the second month of 2016!

I know many people are against resolution making, and let’s be honest, there are probably MANY people who have already fallen off the wagon with theirs. Especially with the resolution of fitness, which is probably why many people don’t bother with resolutions.

Sometimes what we intend to do and what we end up doing don’t align. So, this month I’ve decided to create something that will help you set conscious intentions for yourself as well as workouts that will leave you feeling motivated.

For some folks, setting intentions works much better than setting long-term goals.  Intentions force us to connect with our desires as well as what we may be subconsciously resisting in our lives.  By focusing on one intention daily, it can lead to a greater sense of accomplishment and happiness.

I have created a workout legend to coordinate with each daily intention for February (and it’s a Leap Year, this time, you guys — 29 days!).   If you subscribe to my blog, you can receive an intention action to apply to your day along with a workout you can perform with it.

Awesome, right?

So, as today is the first day of February, let’s kick it off with our first intention of the month:  Laughter.  

Laughter is truly one of the most healing mental health tools at our disposal.  Laughter decreases stress hormones in our bodies and studies show individuals who regularly laugh have stronger immune systems and produce pain-reducing endorphins.  Today your intention is to find the humour in things.  If something stressful comes your way, try and find the funny side of it.  Even though not every situation is appropriate to start laughing your “ass off” at, there are certainly ways to take much less offense to them.

Here’s the February Intentions Workout legend!  Find the exercise that corresponds with the letters in today’s intention and go!  For beginners, start with one round and work your way up to 2-3 as you go through the month.  For those of you who are more advanced and want to add this to your workout routine, go for 3-4 rounds!
