Attract positive energy in 60 seconds

You can attract positive energy anywhere at any time.

Find a quiet corner to sit comfortably…

Or don’t (because again, you can do this anywhere !!! like in a busy store or restaurant, during work, at home, in church, at the gym, on the toilet).

We could all use a little more positive energy throughout our busy days…

Especially when we start experiencing negative thoughts and feelings.

So here’s my quick checklist on how to attract positive energy in 60 seconds:

Play some music if you can / desire to.

And when you are ready, begin…

  1. Deep belly breaths
  2. Give thanks
  3. Draw positive energy in
  4. Get loose and stretch
  5. Dance / bust a move

May positive energy be with you always.

Have a bike? Ride to get fresh groceries

What’s a FUN, health conscious thing you could do today? Ride your bike to get fresh groceries 🙂

I’m blessed to have a grocery store and produce shop right down the road…

And I can use my bike to get there!

Exercise, sunshine, snacks, nooo car needed.

If you do have a bike at home, are you taking advantage of it or letting a great way to work your heart and mind slip through the cracks?


PS – omg y’all! This is my 100th post on the blog😭 my 2022 personal goal was to post 100 healthy living blogs and weee got it done!

My writing consistency was looking a little rocky in the beginning of the year (weekly/biweekly blogs) but with picking up the daily snippet goal recently – I’ve accomplished my goal well ahead of schedule.

Always and forever grateful. Feeling blessed. Appreciating the good times. Learning and adjusting along the way. Working on doing what I said I’ll do.

Stay blessed my friends!

5 breaths per pose

Tight muscles? Have thought about doing yoga or some type of stretching for a while now but don’t know where to begin? Want to get back into a yoga practice?

A great place to start is 5 breaths per pose.

For each pose you do, whether it’s basic stretching or a yoga sequence, hold that stretch for 5 deep belly breaths.

Fill up your lungs – all the way in, all the way out.

Feel your muscles and nerves relax with each exhalation.

Move onto the next pose.

Ask Joey Diandrea, he’s recently implemented this tip and is seeing much success with it!

Morning movement

If you’ve been feeling low energy lately – here’s a tip that most definitely will help: MORNING movement.

With morning movement, you’ll be feeling all types of good early on, and that good will ripple into the rest of your day!

Here’s a basic structure for your reference…

  • Upper body: arm circles, arm lifts
  • Lower body: leg kicks, leg swings, squats
  • Chest: push-up variations w/ cobra, downward dog
  • Back: hang from a bar
  • Abs: v-sits, russian twists, leg lifts, sit-ups

Set a timer (10-60 minutes) and knock these out shortly after you wake up in the morning.

How many reps to do? Just go until you feel it burning and then some! Switch up the exercises as you please. Throw on some music and roll with it.

Stay active my friends and keep your energy flowing 🙂

Spend time in nature

Hi all! I’m writing to you from a tree hammock that I set up in Pennypack 🙂

I just finished up doing my daily mile – today was hiking hills!

The park is so refreshing with all the plants and animals, the fresh air is unmatched.

I always leave feeling happy and inspired.

Whether it’s a hike in the park, doing some gardening, taking a walk around the block, deep breathing…

Spend time in your inner world. Nature.

Find your sacred spot

It could be a little nook in the corner of the house, your bedroom, a writing desk, where ever you feel relaxed and inspired.

Fill your space with things that bring you joy…

Plants, pillows, a candle, blanket maybe, some good books, incense, a journal.

Use your sacred space to set morning intentions, as a retreat to decompress, when you need a lift in spirits, when you want to ponder or create.

Play some Classical Relaxation or Native American Flute on Pandora to set the mood…

And enjoy this sacred place you created for yourself.

Make time to be creative

When was the last time you created?

Building something out of nothing.

Finding a solution to a problem.

Doing art, organizing, writing, thinking.

Are you living day to day neglecting your creative muscle?

Or are you making the time to ponder and build?

How do you deal?

When something bothers you, how do you deal with it?

Do you stomp your feet?

Do you accept without resistance?

Do you pop off at the first sign of opposition?

Or do you keep your reactions in line with your values?

Growing up, my mom taught me to express myself physically and verbally (the Philly attitude that we all know and love lol) but as I got older I realized that I can choose how I react… and my life changed forever.

I don’t get into altercations with others like I did before, things that used to bother me no longer have the same effect. My life is evolving for the better because my reactions are better.

I now take a second to breathe and think how I want to respond. I accept and do what I can in the moment. I try to see it from all sides. And I try to hold compassion and empathy forefront.

So how do you deal?

Legs on the wall

Hi all! I’m currently writing to you with my legs up on the wall. 🙂

When we sit or stand for long periods of time, it can hurt our blood circulation. Our legs and feet can even become swollen, or worse…

So when we put our legs above our heart we are encouraging happy blood flow.

I love this pose and you can do it pretty much anywhere – floor, bed, couch, outside, etc.

No wall? No problem. Elevate your legs above your heart using pillows or something similar. Even a slight elevation will work magic.

Getting our legs up and moving them more…

Improves blood circulation, our lymphatic system, sleep, and energy levels…

Relieves pain, swelling, and headaches…

And helps with digestion, inflammation, and bloating.

The more you can do it the better.

Like when you’re reading, watching your shows / vids, creating content (me right now!), pondering about life, napping, & so on.

Leg health is real! Take care of those babies.

Taking a walk

Hearing wind chimes, birds, lawn mowers.

Smelling fresh air, the flowers and greenery.

Seeing houses, cars, people, stores, streets, animals, plants.

Feeling my phone in my hand, champ’s leash on my arm, and socks on my feet. Also feeling grateful, a little hungry, sweaty, and inspired.

Tasting peppermint.

Thinking about the moment. Grounding myself in the now.
