Sometimes life can get the best of us … everyone has a battle they are fighting and it can deeply affect their happiness. At times people are too blinded by what tomorrow holds to be grateful for what they have today. People become overwhelmed easily because people don’t stop thinking in this day and age.  I work in mental health and the anxiety and depression I see is largely increasing. One technique I use myself and always tell people to engage in when feeling anxious is simply taking three deeps breaths. We are all busy and never quiet our minds. The sense of relief you can get from the constant churning of the mind is huge. Our minds are re -visiting the past pleasures and hurts. It darts into the future… escapes to fantasies creating imaginary worlds to fill it’s desires. Just as our body needs rest so does our mind. When you rest the mind it returns to its beginner mind, it’s natural state. As babies our mind has no words and only lives with awareness… as we learn to speak our mind fills with words and begins to think. As adults we can think too much and lose our awareness. Taking three deep breaths can help reset and refresh which will be better than any anti -anxiety or depression medication. Be mindful.  ♡

#tbt to my last competition when I tried #wpd Was this my best physique? NO. Was it the hardest prep I have ever endured? YES….but….I learned how much I can push myself through tough battles. I had a great support system behind me and that is what drove me to keep moving forward. The process was overly rewarding because I learned so much about myself. My heart learned to be kind…..My mind to be fierce … and my spirit to be brave.  Even though it was my hardest prep to date,  I enjoyed it the most. I am ready to bring it next year ♡ #proud #sponsoredathlete #precision @kimtilden @precisionsupps

Challenge yourself to be more mindful towards others. You never know what battle someone is fighting.    #monday challenge …  Compliment someone … not on something such as their hair or outfit, but something about how empathetic they are or how great they are at organizing their day. Brighten someone’s day!  #bekind #inspiration
