Staying safe and sensible⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It’s been a VERY hard and overwhelming start to 2020 for most of us especially on the big picture front. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Bush fires. Floods. Corona Virus. Scary stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And I know it can feel overwhelming and futile and depressing AF – especially if you are about to bring a beautiful new little human into the world.

But here’s what we CAN do. and – what I would argue, we MUST do; to stay safe, sensible and sane !⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • We can make OURSELVES strong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  • We can respect ourselves and our bodies.
  • We can slow down – here is a special poem for all the Mama’s⠀⠀⠀
  • We can train our resilience by challenging ourselves to do or say the hard stuff and then keep doing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  • We can gift ourselves with the energy and vitality to fight for what we believe in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  • With that energy and vitality we will also be able to help others that are struggling.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  • We can avoid contaminating the planet further by not contaminating ourselves with crap food, negativity and click bait ! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  • We can chose our sources of information wisely⠀⠀

  • We can move our bodies safely and effectively – especially during pregnancy

This made me stop and think…

These fabulous words by Chip Conley shared by @lisamessenger really made me stop and think …⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“I believe there is a yearning for real wisdom in moments like this—perspective, meaning, and hope. And all I know is love and wisdom need to spread as well. And just as fast. Loneliness and isolation are also an epidemic. So is lack of unity.” #coronavirus ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I know that sometimes it feels selfish to take the time for your own physical and mental health and fitness – especially as a Mother and Mama to Be.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

But I’m telling you – if you are going to change the world (or even just weather the storm) you HAVE to feel good – there is no other way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And when you feel good being a parent is easier or journeying through pregnancy or simply life is easier⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So this week – what’s going to make you feel like you can conquer or survive in this world? Because we need you to !
