When I was 21, I prepared for birthday parties with lots of hair straightening, doing make up, dressing up in a nice dress and heels, going for pre drinks with the girls, and generally in a state of excitement. These days I'm preparing for my oldest friend's 30th birthday by sitting quietly, in a skirt and a band t-shirt, minimal effort taken to look good, taking all anxiety medication I can with a glass of water, and sock knitting for half an hour. Changed days. I hate this so much. #anxiety#mentalhealth#deepbreaths#fightorflight#mindfulness#takebackcontrol

Did you know that beautiful memories can be used to change your brain & help reduce #foodcravings ? . This is a photo from my former garden back in the Santa Cruz mountains. I can look at this and let it fill me with joy. 💕 . When I do this, I reduce my stress hormones on the spot and increase serotonin & oxytocin, the bonding hormone. Plus, it just feels good 💕 . I teach this to my clients & patients. You can evoke a good feeling ANY time you want, you don't need cake to do that, though there is nothing wrong with cake! 🍰 . When you evoke positive feelings throughout your day, you will be able to reduce or eliminate cravings & make choices that feel good 💕 . Note: Stay tuned for more later about truly enjoying desserts & not wasting desserts on stress!

Do you blog? Find it hard to find the time to sit down and write a blog each week? Planning out your blogs can really help if you're struggling to find the time to write them. When you're feeling creative or just in a blogging kinda mood, jot down the ideas of a few blogs at once, write down the key points and any key sentences or key points, so it's easier to write the finished product later on. Otherwise, block out some time every few weeks to write a few blog posts at once. This way it doesn't have to be a weekly task and you'll always have one or two blogs up your virtual sleeve for when your having one of those weeks. #doyoublog#vlogger#blogger#virtualassistant
