#TrainforLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 114: NEW HABITS - Have you ever considered letting go of an old habit that is not serving your greater good to make room for a one that is? Habits can feel like Velcro because they are familiar patterns of behavior that are sticky. When you repeat patterns of behavior over and over again they become deep-rooted and imprinted in your brain. Behavior can become so ingrained that you don't even know you are doing it. It is like moving through life on autopilot, and in some cases you are. Like information on a computer, habits become hardwired. Unfortunately, you can’t “wipe” your brain like a computer but you can upload new behavior and begin integrating new habits into your life. So, think about one thing that is not serving your higher good, and consider a new habit you can do when you find yourself falling into that sticky familiar territory. Example: If you tend to reach for unhealthy snacks late at night see if you can pause and redirect your attention to a new “replacement habit”. You could call a friend, go outside for 5 minutes and spend time in nature, journal about a positive experience you had, take your dog for a walk, or just pause and take 10 deep breaths and notice how you feel. None of these actions require a lot of time or effort and all could be considered healthy habits. Replacing old habits with new ones is part of the equation, but there are a few more steps to consider. The first step is awareness. Learning to observe your actions as part of a behavioral pattern and identifying what initially triggered it is key. Imagine a wave of dominos falling one by one. What put the wave in motion? Getting to the root cause requires you to look a little closer, which is where a lot of people get stuck. Need help getting past this phase? There is a change process to follow that will help? Click the below link to access a Harvard article called, Trade bad habits for good. It is a 3-minute read and it will provide a solid roadmap to follow if you are ready to take action. Changing behavior isn’t easy but it is possible. It takes about 90 days to create a new habit but isn't the quality of your life worth the effort?

#TrainforLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 112: SUPERPOWER – We often dont pause long to acknowledge our gifts and to celebrate them. So, I have an important question for you in celebration of Mothers Day. What is your moms superpower and what is yours? My moms superpower was kindness, and mine is probably encouragement.

#TrainforLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 111: INFORMED – We are facing an invisible enemy and a global pandemic. So, how can you show up? Don't be a bystander, be the type of leader you want to follow.

We may have to practice social distancing for a while, but that doesn’t mean emotional disconnection. We are all adjusting to a new normal, so staying engaged with friends, family, and life is more important now than ever before. There may be more distance between us, but the most important force on the planet LOVE, can't be quarantined. Exercise your heart by reaching out to someone who might need your support.

What we can all spread right now is a VIRUS of COMPASSION. #RisingStrongerTogether

Safety tip: Rather than shake, try giving a greeting that is thousands of years old... Make NAMASTE your new handshake.

Important reminder: Pause, process, and proceed with greater intention.

My family is sending your family love 💛 and light! ✨

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 98: INTENTION -“Setting an intention taps into the desires of your heart.”
– Terrie Elizabeth Reeves

New Year’s is often accompanied by people making personal resolutions, but those resolutions are frequently short-lived. Why do 80% of New Year’s resolutions experience a fast fizzle. I think far too often we place unrealistic expectations on ourselves, and all that does is add more pressure. 😝 Rather than goals this year, think in terms of intentions.

What do you want to do this year that will improve the quality of your life and WHY is that important? Let your answers guide and fuel your 2020 intentions.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 93: ALIGNMENT -WHEN IT FITS IT FLOWS 🌊 might be your ticket 🎟 to greater happiness. Most of you have experienced being in flow or in the zone and you might even remember the associated feelings you had while there. When you engage in activities that align with your values, tap into your talent, spark your creativity and feed your soul, it is hard not to find yourself in flow. It is a state of being which feels in some ways effortless. How are you spending your time and energy in ways that move you into flow? It is a healthy place to be, so pause and consider what you are doing when you are there. Consider doing more of it and find people who value and enjoy the same things. Life is more fun spending time in flow with like-minded people.🙂🤸‍♀️ Busyness can rob you of flow.... don't let it.

It is a healthy place to be, so pause and consider what you are doing when you are there. Consider doing more of it and find people who value and enjoy the same things. Life is more fun spending time in flow with like-minded people.🙂🤸‍♀️ Busyness can rob you of flow.... dont let it.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 92: GRATITUDE - A friend of mine asked me if I knew what vitamin G was, and despite being a health nut I was perplexed. He smiled and said, the G stands for gratitude. But, when gratitude is practiced can it actually be good for your life? That would be a research affirming YES! Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is definitely worth the extra effort because studies conclude it is good for your health and happiness.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 91: SELF-CARE -
Self-care, a word that is often revered but less often practiced. A lot of people wake up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee and plow into their day headfirst. How do you start your day? Does your “to do list” start ruminating in your head the moment you wake up causing your mind and body to move into overdrive? Ever wonder why this fast start occurs? Your brain is always processing and when you wake up it attaches to a thought that can move you immediately into action without any regard to how you are feeling. This thought centered processing often moves you straight into go mode. There is a reason this happens. Your brain gets a hit of dopamine (a happy fix) every time you complete a task, so the more you do the more hits you get. Has your “to do list” become a drug that fuels your addiction to busyness? I don’t know about you, but I can get so focused on completing tasks that I forget to enjoy the moment, and isn't experiencing the moment where life is supposed to be lived? Unfortunately, not a concept that is highly regarded, encouraged or rewarded in our society.

So, what if, you paused daily to get grounded and more in tune with your thoughts and feelings? Consider taking a few me-centered moments in the morning to take personal inventory. Checking in by asking yourself how you feel emotionally and physically is a great way to gauge if your tank is full, empty or somewhere in between. Becoming more aware may actually point you in a healthier direction which certainly includes self-care. Two statements I hear a lot that can hijack you on the road to self-care are…. I feel guilty when I do things to take care of myself and I can’t seem to find the time to fit self-care into my busy schedule. If this resonates with you join the club because almost everyone is a member. So, how can you get past these barriers? Answer the next question and see if it helps move you in the right direction. What can you do more of in your life that makes you feel physically healthy, emotionally happy and spiritually whole? Awareness can be a great catalyst for change and it often fuels intentional action. Consider one small thing you can do each day to practice self-care and get clear on why being nice to yourself is so important. Understanding your WHY can take you below the surface of thought to a deeper place where emotions live. Tapping into emotions like self-love and compassion are great motivators. We are all busy and time and energy are precious commodities and so are you.

Self-care is like giving yourself a big emotional hug and who doesn’t need a hug.

Fact: Hugging someone for more than 30 seconds will shift their energy and yours from a thought lead transaction to a HEART centered experience.

This Thanksgiving try hugging friends and family a little longer. It will make them feel better and you too.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 86: STATUS QUO - Take an intentional leap of faith.

"Embracing change requires being open to new possibilities. To have the capacity to see beyond the obvious and the desire and courage to walk into the unknown. Change requires letting go of the familiar, stepping beyond what is comfortable and trusting the process”. – Terrie Elizabeth Reeves

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 84: PAUSE - I am sure you have heard of Stop, Drop and Roll, the fire safety technique that is taught to children. These types of educational phrases can help us remember a few simple things to do especially when under stress. In this case, following this process could save your life. When you are under stress you can lose the ability to process rationally because the frontal cortex, often referred to as the “executive” part of the brain gets hijacked. Emotions take over and you may find yourself in auto pilot reactionary mode. There are many reasons you land in this place but too much to discuss in this short FB post. However, I want to make a very simple stop, drop and roll suggestion for you to consider.

If you find yourself triggered, getting irritated, feeling out of control, or ready to fire back at someone consider taking an extra minute to Pause, Process and Proceed. Give yourself time to pause and breathe, the time to process what you are experiencing, and once your emotions have settled you can proceed forward with greater intention, or you may even decide to do nothing for a while.

If you begin to notice patterns in your behavior, dig a little deeper and ask yourself why you are being triggered. Your emotions are like icebergs, the tip is the reaction but what lies under the water is what makes up the power and mass. Be curious and inquire by looking underneath the surface. Avoid the collision… pause, inquire and perhaps change course.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 83: RESILIENCY -
“There is light on the other side of darkness, believe in yourself and trust the process”. – Terrie Reeves Posting this for anyone who is feeling alone. Pause and give yourself permission to feel. It's the thing about pain, it demands to be felt or you will silently shatter inside. The good news is you are not alone and the heart is resilient. It can be broken into millions of pieces but it will heal, and the tiny cracks left behind add character and contribute to this beautiful and sometimes messy experience called life. There are no shortcuts through struggles, but you don’t have to go it alone. Reach out to your tribe and they will help you put the pieces back together. #TrustYourself #ArmorOff #Resiliency #Empowerment #Tribe

Your thoughts impact your emotions and they influence your behavior and the way you view yourself and the world. If you have ruminating thoughts it is worth noticing and more than that, how your thoughts are impacting your life. Awareness is powerful and so are your thoughts, so make sure you are talking to yourself the way you deserve.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 81: SELF - The word “SELF” creates different mental constructs for each of us and can be combined with other words that give it even deeper meaning. I share this because our Westernized society doesn’t encourage us to slow down in order to do introspection. So, I invite you to consider how the word SELF can actually point you in the right direction.
1. Self-refection – pausing to take personal inventory
2. Self-awareness – waking up to your own intuition
3. Self-discovery – opening up to new possibilities
4. Self-care – giving yourself down-time, grace, compassion and love
5. Self-selection – spending your time and energy wisely
6. Self-actualization – landing in a place that feels like home

Stay in tune with your heart’s desire, practice self-care and choose with greater intention how you spend your time and energy. Intuition is powerful but it does require you to pause, and to trust yourself and the process.

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside dreams; who looks inside, awakes." Carl Jung

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 78: PAUSE - Days that mark something significant like anniversaries, birthdays and holidays can often prompt self-reflection. In a world that tends to trigger busyness, applaud performance and fuel consumption, self-reflection can be a get place to land. The ability to be present in the moment is a good way to ground and to check in with yourself. When you are moving at lightning fast speed trying to keep up with your to do list, life can become a blur. So, hit the pause button this weekend and give yourself permission to slow down and to be grateful. Be present and open so you don’t miss the things that you are intended to experience. You cannot get time back or buy more of it, so be intentional about how you spend it. Life is short so stop rushing so you don’t miss it. Sometimes I share things that I need to work on myself….

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 76: PAUSE - Pausing is so important and when you do it the benefits can be life changing.

The PAUSE is that sacred space between stimulus and reaction. Mindfulness lives in the pause, and it is in this space that we allow ourselves the gift to process what we are thinking and feeling in order to respond with greater intention. "Pause to breathe. Pause before you react. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing or defending. Pause before judging yourself and others. Pause to seek the truth. Pause to get clear. Pause so you can choose your path wisely. Let the pause be the bridge between thought, emotion and action.”
– Terrie Elizabeth Reeves

Life is made up of the sum total of your actions, so take yourself off auto pilot by pausing and waking up in the moment. Begin to notice… What are your default behaviors? Next time you find yourself triggered see if you can pause and resist the urge to react. Meet yourself with kindness and choose your path with greater care and intention. What habitual behavior do you have that is not serving your higher good? Pause to notice and consider a new path. A path that may lead you to healthier possibilities for your life.

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 75: SURRENDER - I heard this quote yesterday and it was a great reminder that how we process things shape our reality. The word surrender can be viewed in different ways. What does it mean to you? I love this compassionate way of thinking about surrender. Sometimes it is healthy to just let go without the pressure of thinking you have failed. What can you let go of today that is holding you back? Pretty cool question to ask yourself. #trainforlife #JoinThePause #bemindful #LiveAbundantly #IdealBeing Check out more memes I have created and consider new possibilities for your life. www.empowerhealthamerica.com/tfl-empowerment-campaign ...

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 74: MOOD - Do you sometimes find yourself in a mood and you are not exactly sure how you got there? Have you ever thought about what creates your mood? Here is the 60 second skinny on the subject. We are all impacted by internal and external stimulus (situations, experiences etc.) that trigger our emotions. Feelings/emotions over an extended period of time create our mood. So, if you want to change your mood, pause and ponder what is causing me to feel the emotions I am feeling and ask yourself, do I like the way I feel? If you do, notice why you are experiencing positive emotions and pause to be grateful. If you are not, do the same thing and notice why you are experiencing negative emotions and consider: 1. First, meeting yourself with kindness 2. Pausing, breathing and connecting with the sensations in your body 3. Asking yourself more ”why” questions to better understand what is at the fulcrum (center) of your negative experience 4. Taking intentional action by doing something that will shift your mood. Just noticing your mood.... good, bad or indifferent without judgement is a good place to start. The only way you can appreciate something or change something, is if you aware of it. So, pause more and wake-up to how you are feeling and reacting. To read more on how to pause with greater intention consider reading. www.empowerhealthamerica.com/blog/practice-the-pause-exercise

#TrainForLifeEmpowermentCampaign Post 72: GUIDING PRINCIPLES - We all have a moral compass and a set of values that help guide us through life. These values have been influenced by our family of origin, teachers, mentors, friends and life experiences. Our perspectives and opinions are often formed by some of the same influences that shape our values. No doubt, we are all different, and we move through life with our own set of ideals, and we live our lives according to our own guiding principles.
