I dag skal jeg være heilt ærlig å si: I dag har jeg hadd en skikkelig crappy dag!😏
Brukte 2 tima på å kave meg ut av senga, og kjente at depresjon va tilstede. Lurt seg inn i hodet mitt mens jeg sov. Og når den er der, er ikke ting bare bare. Da tar ALT lang tid.
Kom meg ut av senga på sikt, og brukte 1 time på å få treningsklærne på og mat i kroppen. Og kom meg på en liten treningsøkt likevel.
Eneste som hjelper når depresjonen har overtaket.
Ganske fornøyd etterpå da! Og hodet en del lettere🙂
Blir lite med trening i helgen, da jeg skal kjøre opp til Tromsø i morgen og hjem til mamman min på lørdag. Mange som skal ha en "bit" av meg, når jeg først er på hjemlige trakter før jul, da jeg ikke skal være der i julen i år heller🙂

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

Current mood: Low tide/small dose of festive cheer/a lot of mud. Reminding myself of the importance of silence, stillness & observation amongst the madness 🍃

As much as we are addicted to travel... it’s nice to be home just for a few weeks and take time to breathe .. and enjoy our local friends and family .. what are you up to these holidays?
Are you breathing?
I want you to pause for a second and be mindful of your breath. Are your breaths shallow? Are you holding your breath? Are you hyperventilating? Or are you taking deep belly breaths? Asking if you are breathing may seem like a silly question, but you’d be surprised to know how many people are not taking deep breathes.
If you’ve never heard of belly breathing, than today is your lucky day because I’m about to break it down for you. Belly breathing allows you to take deeper breaths which helps lower your blood pressure, increases alpha brain waves, decrease anxiety symptoms, and releases serotonin. Belly breathing is amazing for anxiety! Panic attacks? Belly breathe!
Are you a shallow chest breather or a deep belly breather?
1. Sit in a chair, with a straight but comfortable posture
2. Place one hand on your chest and the other hand on your stomach (below your rib cage and above your belly button)
3. Take a few “normal” breaths. Which hand moves? If you are not sure which hand is moving, you can sit in front of a mirror or ask someone to watch you.
4. If your top hand is moving, you my friend are a chest breather. If your bottom hand moves, you are a belly breather (yay!)
Now lets practice belly breathing together. Slowly breathe in through your nose and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Feel your stomach rise and fall as you breathe. Imagine your belly filling up like a ballon as you inhale and deflating as you exhale. With each breathe, notice how your body feels more and more relaxed. I suggest you practice this 1 minute, 3 times a day. If you find yourself feeling anxious or stressed, belly breathe for 1 minute. I promise you it will help!
If you are struggling with belly breathing, send me a DM and I will share tricks on how to retrain your breathe.

“To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence." -- Sydney Smith
Last night my meditation teacher was talking about all that we can learn from young children. They haven’t yet learned to breathe a heavy sigh of sadness or a shallow breath of anxiety or a huffy breath of true anger. I thought of my own son who lives a life of love, happiness, encouragement, and wonder. Here he is—with his loyal companion!—so thrilled to see Grandma coming up the walk. He is full of so much joy, true excitement, and pure love. Taking a lesson out of his book sounds like a brilliant idea... .

✖FOODIE FRIDAY & COPING WITH CRAVINGS✖
Quick stop at Dumpling King at @adelcentralmarket
✅What are you doing for lunch today?
✅What foods are you craving right now?
▫️How do you cope with your food cravings?
🔹️Coping with food cravings is easier than you think...🔹️
▫️Every moment you wait, is a moment longer before you give in to that craving.
▫️Get up & go for a quick walk outside or around the house, have a shower, brush your teeth, tall to a friend, browse insta!
▫️Breathe in slowly through your nose for 5 seconds
▫️Hold your breath for 1 second
▫️Slowly breathe out for 5 seconds.
▫️Repeat for 5 rounds.
▫️Still craving? Time to make your decision.
▫️Remember, you ALWAYS have the choice & power to decide.
✅Don't guilt yourself if you do give in. It's a small lapse or as I like to put it, a bump in the road... Jump back up on that horse because you are totally capable!
✅ Remember cravings are cravings because your restricting urself from having some treats, don't let the craving build and then blow up hardcore.
✅Have your snacks or treats, allow for it in your macros. I like the 80/20 rule.
▫️80% of total calories for nutrient dense, whole foods.
▫️20%for what ever you want.🔹️
▫️Train Smarter, Not Harder▫️

A massive thank you to the beautiful ladies who turned out tonight in the cold for the final evening yoga class of 2018. It’s been a pleasure teaching you & getting to know you. Have a great Christmas & we’ll restart classes in Leitrim/Ballydugan Community Centre on Thursday 10th January 2019 🙏. #yoga #Loughrea #Leitrim

Yep, this morning's training ground.. Why would you train indoors, unless it's about to poor rain of course🤣
Birdrock beach itself is worth the visit, but add a little round fitness circuit and it's a pretty complete training ground.. Most of my training is outdoors, fresh air, open space, less intimidating, and more mind cleansing.
Stop and look around, there are beautiful, magical things happening every day. You just need to pay attention

Are you afrique-ing kidding me?! $13?!
do you realize i have to get gifts for other people for Christmas?? I CAN'T BE BUYING MYSELF STUFF, OK. This sale is RUDE

Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.
