De-Stress Your Life

Most of my clients come to a yoga class with the goal of leaving some stress behind. This past Tuesday, my friend Paula Guilbeault-Roballo, a classical homeopath, came to the studio and did a talk for us and the tips she shared were amazing!

Why do you want to keep doing yoga? Yoga is the modality that comes closest to a homeopathic treatment, Paula says. Focusing on the breath, and sending the breath deep into the lungs has an instant effect on your autonomous nervous system.

But in addition to yoga, Paula suggested that some of the food we eat may alleviate stress, but some others may trigger it.

Strategies for increasing your motivation

Self-sabotage and strategies for achieving your goals
How many times have you woken up in the morning, full of good intentions, only to find yourself at the end of day having done a million things but none of the things you wanted to get done?

You ask yourself: How can this be? Have I not planned properly? Was I not motivated enough?

The answer is: you may have planned properly, but somewhere inside, something stronger than your desire sabotaged your efforts to accomplish your goals, leaving you disappointed, frustrated and critical of yourself.
