Take A Gratitude Walk

Today’s focus is Gratitude for our feet that walk about 7,500 steps a day! According to WikiAnswers: “The average moderately active person takes about 7,500 steps a day. Assuming every day the person walks, an eighty year old person who began walking at one year of age, would have taken 216,262,500 steps in their lifetime. An average person, with an average stride, living to this age of 80 will walk about 108,131 miles.” I learned how to really appreciate every step while trekking the rivers of Costa Rica. It’s not easy. If it rains in the mountains, the water down by the ocean is unclear and muddy. But if the mountains stay dry, you’re in for a stroll in the beautiful blue waters. Regardless of the path and the water…

Journaling Prompts for Peace, Happiness and Focus

Having a clear vision of your day saves 40% of your time and makes you more productive. Instead of simply charging into your day going in a million directions take time to get clear on what you’ll do to look after yourself. I’ve put together a simple worksheet checklist for you to use. This begins with a “brain dump” that will clear your mind to focus on other things. Whether it’s the small distracting thoughts that can take our attention or bigger, more challenging issues that can at times hijack our thoughts, this will make mental space. The most common brain dump exercise you’ve probably heard of are Julia Cameron’s “morning pages” or “stream of consciousness journaling.” In it’s most basic form, this is simply waking up, grabbing your journal,…

Aren’t You Tired of Being Perfect?

By Silvia Mordini While out walking last week, I saw a handwritten sign someone had posted on the sidewalk. It read, “Please forgive them, they are doing the best they can.” On the other side it read, “Everyone has something they want to be forgiven for.” This sidewalk philosophy was a great reminder of a lesson in Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements. The lesson is that we should always strive to do our best. And our best is going to change from moment to moment. Which is a very different idea that some people have regarding doing their best, and being perfect. Aren’t you tired of being perfect? So what is the difference between doing our best in a spiritual way and perfectionism? One is always the same…

AWAKE

You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup – #SelfCare First By Silvia Mordini I’m a recovering workaholic who used to be totally ignorant of my most valuable resource, my health. I wore my workaholism like a badge of honor. I was in constant competition with myself and didn’t even consider there was another way to exist. I was winning! But it came at a cost. I did everything “right.” I proved myself successful in the ways most people define success like making more money and fancy job titles. What happened next was not just one thing but a series of moments of enlightenment that made me realize I had everything I was supposed to want, but I wasn’t happy. One of those moments that woke me up was being in…

What is your emotional and mental health worth?

Super Namaste! Silvia here, Alchemy of Yoga Founder. Let’s get really real for a moment. What’s your emotional and mental health worth to you? If you had to put a dollar figure on this. What would it be? Of all the things you invest time and money in where are YOU on that list? Sadly, for most of us we prioritize the health and well-being of our car as more important than ourselves. That doesn’t make sense to me. Does it to you? As always I’m going to tell you the truth. This is not a rehearsal for a better life. THIS IS IT. You are not in a trial run. You’re not going to be able to trade in your body for a newer model. This one is it….

SPRING Forward into New Beginnings

By Silvia Mordini Spring is quickly coming, starting March 20, 2019. On this day in the Northern Hemisphere, we have 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. Winter’s shadow moves on. Even so, a lingering bit of heaviness may remain, like the spring jacket you wear or the tiredness you feel in the air. It’s okay to acknowledge the darkness of Winter and see it as the fertilizer making our souls more fertile for the new beginnings of Spring. This seasonal transition serves as a reminder that we can only make new beginnings to the extent we appreciate the endings in our lives. To make a big change and begin again isn’t always popular. As you change yourself, your energy towards those around you changes, and if they…

How To Escape Scarcity Mentality, and Believe that You Are Enough

By Silvia Mordini I often meditate on trusting that I will have enough. Enough of what? Well, enough courage, enough inner strength, enough wisdom, enough energy, enough love, enough happiness, enough peace and yes, enough money. When life becomes intense, the prism of mental scarcity often grows and distorts your view. You start to think that you are going to run out. This feels real. However you cannot attract abundance if you think this way. Abundance and Scarcity are mutually exclusive energies. Do you suffer from what Stephen Covey describes as a scarcity mentality? Do you frequently have feelings of jealousy? Do you often compare with your colleagues, friends or family? Do you constantly measure what you have? Do you have any sort of loss aversion? Let’s find out how…
