This is how we make life work while saying peace out to the ‘HOT GIRL SUMMER’! We talk about our insecurities in our mind and body as we worry about judgement from others. How do we give ourselves the freedom to be who we are today as we combat the craving to rewind the clock. How do we stop doing this to ourselves? Simple solutions that we try to implement and hope YOU will put into place!!! Control What You Can Control! Thoughts, food, movement, habits, etc. You can CHOOSE to have a strategy to shift things or to keep going down the same path. Feed the Positivity! Have you ever written a list of the GOOD things about yourself? What about seeing your favorite quotes regularly?  What is seen on the outside is not always what’s happening on the inside! Ditch the Extremes! It’s not about all or nothing, it’s about keeping it realistic.  Small things lead to BIG things, so keep the focus real. Just end the day well!  What Legacy are You Leaving? Our challenge to you this summer is to take a picture with your kids in a swimsuit…it’s about the memories not the body.  Some of our favorite scriptures to keep handy: Hebrews 12:1-3 Luke 12:48 Psalm 139:14   We love these quotes: “I Am Worthy” “I am learning to love my body and I can CHOOSE to make choices that respect and honor my body today” “I am perfectly imperfect” “I like me, she gets me” “You are enough” “What others think of you is none of your business” “Outward appearance is nothing without inner growth”   Tanologist Tan Drops: https://amzn.to/2SHLfar Honey Bead Stacks: https://honeybeadstacks.com/ Sign up for our newsletter HERE!!!!!

This is how we make life work when planning summer travel!  Natalie sits down to talk with Dori Reuber of Vincent Vacations to learn some common misconceptions and her top travel tips. Life is tangled, so here's how we can make it work a bit easier!  Is it more expensive to work with a travel agent? That's a typical misconception! Some do charge a plan to go fee but not all do...like Dori.  Her agency is a fee free planner which is SO helpful.  It's comparable to buying a house...those realtor fees are built in just like travel agent fees are always built in whether you use them or not.   Why would someone use a travel advisor instead of booking on their own? They spend their own time and money to tour destinations for their clients. They have first hand experience! They have access to promotions and deals that the general public doesn't. They all share information and help each other so that they can help their clients in the best possible way. They do all of the leg work for you and take away a big chunk of stress! What are some great booking tips for summer travel? Use a travel advisor!!!!   Buy an insurance policy on your trip...there are several ways and Dori gives us guidance on those. Google flights is a great resource to see what airlines are pricing on what days Premium flights are on holidays   What are some great packing tips? Lists Carry on only (is quart size toiletries still a thing??) TSA Pre-Check vs. Global Entry options Minimizing packing and wear dry fit material to keep compact in suitcases and possibly use the packing cubes Sunscreen is crazy expensive at resorts to pack as much as you can If you do check your bags, take a backpack with swimsuit, first change of clothes, toothbrush and meds What are some helpful booking strategies when working with a travel advisor? Be pretty specific with dates and what is important to you.  Let them know what type of room you want and what your preferences are.  This helps them to tailor something for the best experience for you! Also give them a budget...without that it's very hard to make sure that you get the best trip and so that they can do their job. They don't work for free and don't get paid until you have taken your trip...BIG misconception!  Specials are based on supply and demand so if you book at a different time than someone in your group, there could be a price difference. Tickets can be put on hold for 24 hours unless it's last minute.  Rates are going up so don't be surprised when booking!   Connect with Dori and get some great deals through her private community at TRAVEL BY DORI with Vincent Vacations!!!!  She shares some great specials in there but know she can take those and tailor to you specifically.  You can also email her dori@vincentvacations.com !  Resources recommended: www.google.com/flights Favorite Resorts: Family: Xcaret Couples: Ateleir, Secrets, Excellence, Grand Velas Packing Cubes

This is how we make life work when unraveling our fitness during the summer !  It’s hard to fit workouts into our day, we get it... it’s hot, procrastination takes over and there are a million things pulling at us.  But we have to make it a part of our day and here are  simple solutions  to make your fitness journey work so that you can end the day well.     It should be a part of your daily to do list!   We all have crazy schedules right now, so how can we fit in our workouts during the busy summer months?  We suggest picking 3 days to workout at a higher intensity, always being in motion by adding simple movement patterns to your daily routines, and scheduling it out. Having the right space is crucial!  It isn’t a one size fits all and it doesn’t mean a full spread of a gym, but having a few simple things in place will give you the right headspace and space for movement.  We even give some of our favorite items to help!  Our favorite playlist?  Hip Hop BBQ on Pandora is the big winner!!!!  Prioritizing is KEY!!! We make a 30 minute workout just as important as showering and brushing our teeth on most days.  It can’t fall off the list, so having a plan together and not compromising your day until this is conquered will help to make it a ‘1’ in your appointments. Your overall health is more important than what we give it credit for. Start taking care of yourself NOW so that you are set for any other battles that may come your way.   At the end of the day, it is about being PROACTIVE in your fitness journey instead of being REACTIVE! Keep it simple, keep it realistic and end the day well!   Product links mentioned during this episode include==> Mini Loop Bands (10% discount with code MYTHINKFIT) Hip Bands (10% discount with code MYTHINKFIT) Equipment bundle (10% discount with code MYTHINKFIT) Jump Rope (10% discount with code MYTHINKFIT) PopSugar  Beachbody on Demand MyThinkFit LIVE   FAVES  Face: Glow Screen  Fashion: Shein swimsuit top Food: Blueberry Watermelon Feta Salad

This is how we make life work when the honeymoon of summer comes to an end.  Our patience is running thin, the kids are restless and we are craving routine.  We give our strategies on keeping our mental health on point so that we can be better for everyone around us and feel like we have finished well.    As the summer winds down we can feel more stress creeping in as we get a longer list of things we need to get done before school starts.  So how do we begin???   Having a to do list is KEY to making sure that we keep order. It helps us to navigate the most important.  When our heads are in order, it helps to keep our lives in order.  Whether you like pen and paper or a digital planner, it’s so important to focus on what lies ahead  Personal growth is something we just cannot let slide by.  Making even 5 minutes to take care of ourselves is crucial to being the best for ourselves and for others. Some of our favorites are plugging in great podcasts, listening to books on audible and just old school sitting down with  a good book to help us grow. We touch on social media and how it can be somewhat of a detriment to our headspace.  We don’t want it wrecking our worlds with strong comparison games so we strategically follow those who inspire us.  Surround yourself with inspiration and motivation to keep on track. Borrowing trouble from the future might seem like it’s a crazy strategy to keep us on track, but is it?!?  Not necessarily!   Big decisions and little decisions, what affect will it have on our future selves?  Is it going to make us feel more behind or help us get ahead of the game?  By borrowing trouble from the future we can avoid issues while also making great gains in our mental health worlds.    Resources mentioned:  When Less Becomes More Emily Ley 8x11 Simplified Planner Emily Ley 8x5 Simplified Planner   This Episode's FAVES: Face: I Am Love  Fashion: Kimono and This one too!  Food: Costco Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry

This is how we make life work through a bit of rest.  Let's face it, neither of us are real 'restful' souls, so this is a really hard subject for us.  But we also realize that there is renewal amongst the rest that we allow ourselves.   We don't enjoy when people tell us to rest! Why?  It makes us feel anxious and lazy.  But that's NOT how it should be! We love fitness but we also know that our results don't come if we work our muscles 24/7.  The growth comes when we rest our muscles and allow them to recover.  That doesn't mean sitting around all day while they recover, but it DOES mean allowing rest.  How can we help YOU to grasp onto more rest so that you are the best version of yourself?  Flip the Script... RESTORATION...rest is at the root! It's a renewing of something that has been lost.   Rest is taking a break from the stressful and strenuous activities Be true to you... What does 'rest' mean to you? What would YOUR ideal rest period look like? Communicate with your loved ones... Define your perfect 'rest' period  Share that with those in your household We challenge you to REALLY take a step back and look at how you can rest more. Your mind, body and soul ALL need that restoration!!!!

This is how we make life work when tragedy strikes!  We believe that God places us in the EXACT places we are supposed to be at all times...good, bad and ugly.  As a Breast Cancer Survivor, Natalie knows that her responsibility is to now pay it forward!  But how?? Natalie shares her story and message to #washwithyourhands! By finding her own mass, she now shares her message with anyone she can to wash with  your hands!  Even if you aren't comfortable doing a self exam, make it your monthly habit to wash with your hands on the first of every single month.  Pay attention to what you are feeling and take note of any differences from month to month.  YOU are your best advocate!!  She encourages you to educate yourself! What's with all the pink?  Sure we know it stands for breast cancer awareness, but it's what's behind all the pink that matters.  How do fighters feel about it?  How do survivors feel about it?  It can vary from person to person but one thing remains...the color is pretty but the disease is NOT.  Educate yourself on the disease, on the foundations your money goes to and the slogans that stand.  At the end of the day we are ALL doing our very best at any moment, so try to relinquish the judgement! She champions the cause to make sure you take care of you NOW! Natalie is SO passionate about making sure YOU know that you can't wait for tragedy to strike before you start taking care of yourself...physically, mentally, spiritually.  By knocking on death's door, she was and is so grateful to have been building her strength all these years.  We will all face a battle and we can't wait for that to come along. If you start taking care of yourself NOW, you will be stronger for whatever comes your way!!!

This is how we make life work when we UNmask!  Are we sharing the REELs of our lives or the REAL lives we lead? We know that all of us would rather share that highlight reel as we seek to avoid insecurity, but what does that lead to?  Envy, comparison and a spiral of mental health.  But what do we do? Before you post it or say it Do a gut check!  Is this living your most authentic self? Are you hiding behind a mask or unvailing who you truly are to your core?  Legacy building We always talk about ending the day well!  Each day adds up to a life well lived and leaving a legacy to those we love and those who know us.  What are we doing with the in between moments?  Get off Social! Yeah, we get it, we get sucked in too!  But get off of social when it doesn't matter so that you can live your REAL life vs. your REEL life Start your day well We want to end the day well but what about how we start?  Are you reaching for your phone first thing or having a bit of introspect time?  Setting the tone for your day is so crucial!  Go check out the BIBLE APP!!!  It's YouVersion and is one of our most favorites and what we both use on the daily.
