    I’m going to get ready like I’m going out! I often roll out of bed and sit in my pajamas. By the end of the day not only do I feel tired and exhausted from working since 7am, but I also feel gross!

    I’m committed to giving myself a little pampering in the morning. (:

      Yay, Marrissa! I’d love to see a picture of your sexy self. If you feel up to it. post something on Instagram or on my Facebook page so we can all cheer you on (just make sure to add #FreedomAdventure and #FierceFabulousFree so we can find you). Can’t wait to see it!

      I am going to sleep earlier and get dressed up as if I am going to work. I usually work from home and often stay in my pjs. It makes me feel blah.

      Being the change means being in communion, not isolating myself, but being fearless and knowing from my heart, leading from my heart, connecting…even if it is only with a smile. A smile is universal and a conversation starter. A smile is a gift that is universal and free.

    Thank you, Nisha! I loved this video and I love you. I am working on creating more sisterhood in my life. I know I need to connect with more women on a daily basis. Your definition of sisterhood is so beautiful. Can’t wait to hear more about Fierce, Fabulous and Free!!! xoxo Michelle

    Instead of working in my yoga pants all day and letting myself get bogged down by technology that is not my strong suit, I’m going to get dressed up and head out for a lunch date. I am also going to find a smarter way to work around tasks that take up all my energy with and leave me behind on other more important items.

      Brilliant, Gina. You’ll be amazed at what those small steps will do for your entire day and how much it begins to shift everything. <3

    Nisha! this video was sooo helpful. for so long i wanted to create a morning routine that included relaxation and meditation before starting my day. i often felt that i was being selfish by wanting those things, especially after a long nights sleep. i felt that i had to constantly be on the go to get as much done as possible. but watching this video shows me that it is possible and ok to balance the two “lives” i know setting a routine is essential to be productive, and have used that method when working with children, but never did it for myself. thank you for encouraging me to do the same. self care is essential.

    Just wanted to share that I have enjoyed doing all the exercises. Almost didn’t make time to view this one before I got into “being busy” for the day. Started it and stopped the video a few times, thinking I don’t have time right now. Grateful that I did pause, for your share about how you go about your day was a great reminder to do those things that matter most. SelfCare is crucial to being the change that we seek in the world.

    Forgot to share that a lot of what you mentioned I already have as a part of my practice. A few things that you did spark for me was to have ‘it’ be more of a beautiful experience – special mug, cup, goblet for tea, clothing that I wear while working at home can be spruced up, incorporate play (listening to music or strumming on my guitar) – never thought to do this before work (what a new concept). I really got … make ‘my’ time an experience versus tasks to complete before work. Thanks for flaming my fire. Blessings!

    This was such a helpful video! I’ve been wanting to incorporate more fun into my life, and this has given me some really great ideas. I’m going to start putting some play into my mornings by taking some time to re-teach myself how to draw (which I’ve been wanting to do for awhile) or doing a quick yoga/pilates session.

    As a single mom, the universe has been screaming to me lately that I need to find time to take care of me. I focus on my work and my 4 year old son, but I get swept under the carpet all of the time…..this video is one more reminder that somehow I need to find space/create space for mommy – but not as mommy – just as Cassia. I am not sure how I am going to do this…..but I need to carve out some time.

    Reply
    • Nisha Moodley

      Try starting with just 10 minutes of Cassia time and work up from there. Even the smallest amount of time makes a huge difference in your day. Best of luck and much love.

    Nisha- what are your thoughts about us mamas, who need to not only care for ourselves, but also our children? I hear you on your message and love the delivery. I am wondering what your vision is for the modern mama, on the day to day… how we are to be financial leaders in our family, fiercely care for our children, and stay centered and grounded to provide meaningful leadership and products for our tribe?

    Reply
    • Nisha

      That is a great question you ask Marika, and I feel the beautiful gem of an answer it is within you. I have a feeling that Motherhood has in many ways already provided you with much wisdom, much insight, and many creative ways to navigate your life today. Ways you probably wouldn’t have thought were possible before you had your precious children. So here you are now sister, becoming a soon to be mother again, this time…expecting a “baby” full with ideas, with possible projects, with a sacred and powerful vision yes? Now it is time for you to see and ask yourself: How can I gracefully allow myself to be shown what would be the best way to birth this vision, and allow my life to nurture all of my relations? How I can be of best and most loving sacred service to all? And ask this until you receive your most delicious inner guidance. It is in there Marika, I can feel it coming for you xo

    Oh Nisha, thank you so much for your beautiful, thoughtful & practical video. Today I am on a “daycation”…the one that I planned for myself on day 5 of our Freedom Adventure. I just finished up an art class and am heading off to the beach to read, swim in the ocean, and contemplate some of the messages from your latest video. I am so grateful that I took the time to plan this day for myself.

    Hey Nisha, I LOVE that you take some time for yourself in the morning! I’d love to light a candle and really connect with myself every morning, too… and maybe even make my own altar πŸ™‚ it seems an indulgence, but then again, it seems like I can’t afford to miss this. It seems really important to get in touch with my intuition in this way. Thank you for this most wonderful video.

      You are so welcome, Roshni. I am so glad you enjoyed the video. If you can add just a few minutes of “you” time to your morning, it doesn’t have to be much, you will be amazed at how it transforms your day. Try it and let me know how it goes. xo

    Loved this sneak peek! I work a standard 9-5 job but have recently begun taking more breaks throughout the day. I take short walk around the neighborhood and try to seek out nature. I find it brings me more clarity when I get back in the office.

    Oh, and I couldn’t start the day without some me time in the morning. I’ve been doing that since my boys were very young (they are 22 and 17 now). I started it just so I had some time alone and it has become my favorite time of the day. Even if it is just 15 minutes, I need my time. As caregivers we are so quick to neglect ourselves that it really does start to impact our lives. One of the bravest things we can do is to take care of ourselves.

    Thank you for the wonderful videos and spreading your message!

    Great video Nisha! So many good reminders – take aways from LiveFree – I am in the middle of recreating and relaunching my brand and offerings and have so many things on the go (including my little ones). I struggle to create a supportive routine. Every morning I have the intention to meditate, but I let something else slip in the way. Thank you for reminding me to reprioritize. xo

    Hey, I see Jen Blackstock in your sister group. πŸ™‚
    As I have posted before, I left my job (which was being on-call 8 hours a day), and now work for myself. This is terrific, but now I must shape my days. I have joined Erin Stutland’s online Shrink Session, and that has helped with physical movement, and online sisterhood. I am still deciding how all the components of self-care, quiet time, and getting down to it with the self-employed biz work will come together. I feel guilty when I am not tackling my lists, but know that I have such a need for self-care. Thanks for these video tips.

    Nisha, thank you, thank you, thank you! I am ready to create space and time in my day, each day. I run around too much, hurrying through practically everything. I live in a small apt with my sister, and it’s very tight and confining. Right now, I am preparing to find a place of my own. I feel like my life and the things I want to do in my space are on temporary hold. I am up at the crack of dawn just to have peace, quiet, and privacy. I am so ready to be truly fierce, fabulous, and free! I am building a sisterhood of girlfriends, family. My own family has unfortunately let me down so much. I have had to let them go. Both my mom and dad passed away over the last few years, and I have had to redefine and start recreating my life. I am so happy to be part of your sisterhood, my sweet sister!

Thank you for the beautiful reframing. I will continue to go within… you are right it is all right there. Much love to you. ~~~

    I have to thank you, Nisha for this video. It wasn’t so much the tips, as the overall gift you just gave me in a powerful mindset shift. As our online business in serving women around the world in mental, emotional, and physical restoration thru diagnostic nutrition, environmental and lifestyle change has truly grown, and my team has grown, over this past year, I’ve been able to at least start to welcome a few of the things back into my life I had done as a child that fired up my creative self, like my art, my spiritual practice, taking a walk of solitude with our two dogs in the morning to connect with the sunrise and nature… yet, as am ambitious by nature woman, I’ve struggled with the guilt of doing that being a NY’er from NJ born & raised, I was brought up with this ideal of climbing the ladder, nothing was ever “enough”, consumption, drive, that as I’ve been going through my own rebirth in my 30’s & now 40’s while building my own creation in this world for women, I’ve slowly been releasing. I’ve often felt, gosh if people saw me doing this, they’d think her life is so easy (which it’s not, I work quite hard too) or she’s a phoney. I’m still on my own healing journey, and doing work around my mind body connection to tap further into my own voice, and without going deeply into that point, it’s ways I’ve been investing into myself to further tap into my gifts and expression to connect with and server others still at a deeper level. Your video really just clicked for me, and I finally got what you’re saying… that I can release that guilt for the time I”m taking each day to connect with my self, my world, my environment, b/c in doing that, I’m actually living the truth of creating our lives the way we all can as women to heal ourselves, and this world around us, yet not sacrificing all our goals even in work in the process. And, you’ve encouraged me to show more of that side of my life now, as I’ve created a platform that helps to restore women’s spirits through the physical, because in not showing it through our online business, I’m being inauthentic & limiting the connection I could be having with our tribe. Beautiful, thank you for this transformative mindset shift today! There is no guilt in experiencing ourselves at a fuller, deeper level the way we are created to be by our creator & showing the world there is a much more fulfilled, connected way of being & living our journeys while we’re here. XOXO

        Thank you, work in progress πŸ˜‰ and thank you so much for sharing your message. I really connect with it, even the journey you courageously share with your relationship with your marriage during your work goals, as my husband and I do our business together and it has put an entirely different dynamic on our relationship. It’s pushed us to grow in ways we hadn’t anticipated. He supports me in how connected I am to my mission for other women, but he wasn’t super excited about the weeks on end of seeing his wife still at the computer in her pjs unshowered, who forgot to brush her teeth b/c she was so intensely working constantly to the point all else got lost. My overly male energy when I’m in that mental work state def doesn’t resonate for my husband. πŸ˜‰ I’ve spent a few years doing the over-isolating, relentless work schedule, and have just been realizing lately at 40 yrs old, I can’t make myself a martyr in order to save people from what we went through when my health took a dive in my early 30’s & sacrifice all the things in my own life on that path, that’s not who God/the universe put me here to be, and in doing that I’m dis-serving who I’m here to serve, and myself. I am learning to trust that I’m right where I’m meant to be, and I will never be able to save everyone, I can just keep doing the best I can each day & help those the universe leads to us. Super grateful for your message, it resonates for me so much. Thanks for sharing this course. Really enjoyed the videos. πŸ™‚

    I am guilty of having days where I allow myself to get so stressed out by my workload that I feel I don’t have time to take breaks. Just this past week, I worked a full 8 1/2 hours with only two 5 minute breaks to run to the bathroom. I was so exhausted by the end of the day I was out of breath, out of focus, and even skipped my favorite part of the evening, my workouts. I went to bed feeling less than accomplished and that is a feeling I hate. I am setting the intention to remember myself in my workday and take my breaks. Even if its just to stand up for a moment, I will let myself breathe and be. I believe this will make my week days feel much better. Not to mention, it will increase my productivity.

    Thank you Nisha! Meditation has been a life saver when I do it in the beginning of my day! As a freelancer and running my own business things can get overwhelming and worry tends to take over sometimes. Your #freedomadventure challenge has reminded me of a lot of important things such as self love and self care. As of today I promise not to be so hard on myself, and that to do list will still be there after I come back from the beach with my son and hubby :)))) energized to tackle the everyday tasks!

    It’s amazing how much more energy, clarity, focus and productivity you have when you take time for yourself – even if it is just a few minutes in the morning to connect with your why. I encourage you, Erika, to find ways to build that into your day. I promise it will make a huge difference. xoxo

    Hi Nisha (and new sisterhood!),

    First, I also love your definition of sisterhood! I plan on reaching out to more friends more often in my week.

    Second, being the age that I am and with 3 children, I am encouraged to share morning rituals with those friends. I can’t tell you how much I could have used that special time for myself while raising young children. Now that they’ve become more physically self sufficient, I can take those few extra moments to dive into my book or do some yoga stretching.

    I plan on talking about this with my clients as well….the importance of self care~

    beYOUtiful, Thank you!

    I loved watching this video. I recently made the transition from working a full-time job to focusing on building my own business. With the change in schedule I was feeling a little lost and unsure how to structure my time. I have found creating a morning routine where I wake up, meditate, do some yoga and then have a nourishing breakfast to be a very grounding way to start off my morning. It also helps me get intentional on what I want to focus on for the next few hours.

    Then once I am done with my work connect with friends and go on an adventure, a wise woman once said, “live everyday as if you are on vacation.” πŸ™‚

    So, I am going down the path I am on is to help others but for myself I want a life of freedom and adventure.

    I always love seeing strong, creative women living this type of life, it inspires me.

    Thank you soul sister for being you and sharing your gifts with the world <3

    Ok. I’m definitely ready for this! (I’m telling myself, building up strength to believe in it)

    I always get up at the same time as my kiddos, and my husband gets up half an hour earlier so I don’t have the time to fix and take care of my self in the mornings. I’ve been thinking of how to make it in shorter time without stressing the kids and the answer is kind of obvious. I just need to do it! GET UP earlier! Ohh my. So tomorrow I will set the alarm for one hour earlier. Just to do the focustime for myself without distractions. Awesome! Wonder if I hve to go to bed earlier tonight then …. well I’ll think about that. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for some great ideas about how to change up my morning routine (iphone in bed–no! no!) and how to use my best work time (morning) to greatest advantage while still starting the day with some fun and incorporating fun throughout the day. I have that “isolationist” thing going on that so many entrepreneurs have so seeing how others incorporate people and community into the day helps me a lot.

    I do need to get right up, and I love the idea of being outside and contemplating the day (instead of being really lazy and doing it in bed). And playing music in the a.m. instead of trying to fit it into my evening is great. Thanks for those ideas. Love this series.

    I just finished the Be the Change video. While I think it’s charming to start slow in the morning and take afternoon breaks, it is a completely unrealistic view of a day in the life of any woman who has children. Mothers are trying to cram in as much work during the work day after a crazed morning of getting kids fed and off to school, only for the after-school chaos to start the minute the kids get home. As much as I have tried to smooth out my day, children always need something and need it now! This is all totally out of reach for any mother.

      Shelly I had a very similar reaction to this video however it has really challenged me to see where a can reduce the frantic pace. I am challenging myself to have my kids be a part of the break… like just to be more alive and awake and unscheduled with them at a more frequent basis and letting them rest more too.

      Reply
      • Nisha

        That is a beautiful way to frame this Marika, as children do require all of your attention, I love your invitation to yourself to allow it to be a part of your break and time of connecting. Thank you for your very valuable insight love xo

    • Nisha

      Thank you Shelly for sharing your thoughts and I can really appreciate your honesty and words, as Marika offered below, I would recommend for you to consider the options and possibilities you may have to create the space you need with your children, and around your time with them. Invite them to engage with you in meditation, or create activities for you and them where you connect with your inner being while sharing admiration of where you may be walking, gratitude for what is, children tend to be our greatest supporters if we allow them the space to participate. I am eager to hear about what ideas or options may show up for you as you inquire within. Lots of love to you and the amazing mom I know you are to them xo

    This video was so beautiful and inspiring. I loved seeing how you spend your day, especially what you did in the morning. I live in such a small space, but I hope to find somewhere to place an altar, I just need to be a little creative.

    I’ve been reading the Miracle Morning, and feel eager to get up earlier every day even on weekends. I’m going to give myself more time to be quiet, to read, and journal, to get myself into the mood of working.

    I want to work on listening to what I need. Sometimes I just need inspiration, time in nature, time to read, but I’ve felt guilty about doing that. I also want to get off the computer in the evening, and be more comfortable sitting with myself, feeling what I feel.

I have placed burdens on myself that has created a feeling of sinking. What I want is to be anchored to my souls path, yet to be buoyant and free.

    Hi Nisha! I feel like I have the opposite issue……I am just beginning with my business idea and feel so uncertain, lost and overwhelmed that I stay stuck. And completely unproductive! I am aware that my life works best when I am taking care of myself….making time to meditate, visualize, exercise….and I know I need to create a morning routine including these self-care practices….but when I sit to meditate in the morning, I can barely sit still because my mind is like a whirlwind. And, I know, ironically, that meditating will help with that! But instead of making any progress….I do nothing. And I cannot seem to get out of this rut….

      Hi Kara, thank you for bringing this forward as I feel we all get to fall into this space from time to time as new ideas and visions come in for us to consider. I feel that visiting the other 2 videos, and checking in with yourself daily, with love, with patience, and full acceptance of your process as is right now can be beneficial. The journey of finding ourself where we want to be can take us a while, but it is so so worth it. You are worth it sister! Remember that each day, whatever step we take in the direction we intend to go in, matters in big ways. Honor your rhythm πŸ™‚ xo

    I do practice meditation in the morning, but sometimes it’s a “means to an end” – like “I should meditate so that I’m more productive in my work”. This way of meditating specifically shows up when I am stressed. I’ve considered creating a “work uniform” and even a meal plan all laid out so I don’t have to make so many decisions and be more productive. The problem is that when I do that I lose connection with life – and that is what I’m truly craving. I want to feel like I’m actively part of this big puzzle of life and I’m mentally here (not in the future…) and contributing. I’ll take the time in the next few weeks to create an altar that’s really inviting and inspiring, and even claim the whole experience of building it as essential to my every day happiness (instead of another thing to get done).

    Reply
    • Nisha

      Yes Victoria, creating an altar can be a beautiful space for you to sit and tune in, and you may also want to consider changing places around the house where you would like to meditate in.

    I do think is important to have morning rituals. I am also noticing I will benefit from more flexibility and a change in routine every so often.
    One thing I will like to incorporate is morning smoothies (yep) And maybe going on for some adventure some week nights maybe a museum or something like that!

    Nisha, Thank you so much for this peek into your daily routine. It’s so insipiring and mirrors what I’d like for myself–going with my natural flow of energy and not jam packing everything into a day.

    I work at a full-time corporate job, and there are days when I’ll take walks and get up out of my desk, but a lot of the time I focus on the freedom I don’t feel I have. And it’s frustrating. Can you relate at all? Is it possible for me to do these things without feeling like I’m going to get fired for not being at my desk at all times?

      Hi Courtney, I feel that creating the small space to stretch, to walk around the office for a minute or two while you are working long hours can be of assistance to you, as it merely an invitation for you to step away to take a deep breath, tune in with yourself, and allow you to feel connected with you. Begin exploring doing this in small ways, and give yourself permission to become creative in how you would like to make it work for you given the current needs and schedule you are asked to show up for. I know you have your soul whispering ideas to you right now πŸ™‚ xo

      Thank you Justyna for sharing, and give yourself an extra 30mins to begin each morning for now if you can, see what practices you would like to create for yourself and try them with love and patience until you find what feels supportive, and what fully aligns with you. You’ve got this sister! xo

    Such a brilliant series of videos, Nisha! I love the look of your days πŸ™‚

    I switch between having beautiful mornings, and having so much to do that I skip the routine and dive into work straight from bed! For some reason, my mind tells me that’s the ‘smart’ thing to do, but of course, it isn’t more productive in the long run. Right now it’s 7am and I was going to start work in my Pyjamas… but I’m off to get dressed instead. You rock. x

    I love morning rituals. I used to wake up very early 5:45 with a lot of energy and after drinking my tea, doing my yoga and meditation, I was all set up for meaningful work.
    Truth is, you have to focus on that kind of self care, because it is easy to let this me time slip away from you, especially when you have children. I am looking forward to see what fierce fabulous and free will look like (I am following your work for two year with amazement) because I feel like I need support to go back to this deep self care after having a 4th baby and creating my business. The thing that I am going to incorporate is dressing up and making me pretty: I won’t wait that the baby weight is gone to go back to my sexy me πŸ˜‰
    I have 4 daughters and there is nothing that I cherish more than the ideal of sisterhood. I teach them to cherish their special link and to find it with others. I love your energy and there’s a gentle light around your work.

    I am going to continue showing up for self, trusting that arriving for self each and every day, one may cultivate a greater sense of knowing their path, intuition and clarity. Whatever thoughts or emotions may arise- doubt, fear, contemplation, inspiration, insight- through showing up, is an invitation for the opportunity to connect with the divine.
    And continue to connect with breath!! Easy to forget this sometimes, hehe.

    Nisha, I’m so grateful for your wisdom that you passionately impart on the world!! Your compassionate strength is an inspiration and I feel so blessed that the universe has connected us!

    This is definitely something that I’ve brought back into my life these past few weeks Nisha and I love seeing it re-enforced here πŸ™‚ Bringing meditation and practicing being present in every moment during the day has helped ground and reconnect me with my intuition so that I can make some big changes in the direction my life is going. It’s so very freeing to not only listen to my intuition but to trust that it will take me in the direction I want to go. I’m also extremely lucky to have two sisters that live so close to me and who can support me in the decisions that I make. What I would like to incorporate back into my day is taking the time to do my hair and possibly my makeup every few days. I’m in the process of competing in my first bikini fitness competition and I train so much during the day right now that doing my hair and makeup seems like a waste of time rather than something that could help me be productive. However, I do know that when I take the time to take care of my appearance I do feel better about myself in a way so perhaps that’s a good idea πŸ™‚ Thanks Nisha! xo

    Well this couldn’t be any more perfect, considering I’ve allowed myself to get a couple of days behind on my Freedom Adventure! It was a good reminder that I have gotten away from my Self as I think I am doing better by pouring my support, work, and energy into my clients. Of course, I love them all dearly and just by seeing their transformations I feel fulfilled (in a sense), but I forget to take care of me and my relationships.

    I will create a simple routine to start my day and end my day so that I may more evenly manage my time to promote my health and wellbeing so that I can support my clients in the same manner. It’s easy to give advice, but now it’s time to take my own! Thank you SO much, Nisha! Can’t wait to hear more about Fierce, Fabulous Free!

    Wow…thanks Nisha for yet another awesome video which really touched me to the core. I am one of those who has been sitting around in her pjs all day say by the computer all day claiming that I’m working, only to find that I haven’t really accomplished much at all…yikes!

    I am going to wake up early tomorrow and start off with meditating which I have neglected for a while. I will then sit in silence and write in my journal with what I am grateful for that day and what I will accomplish that day. Then I will do some yoga, have a shower, put on a favourite outfit of mine and prepare a light breakfast. I will work on my computer for about two hours – productively – then take a break to go for a walk.

    Wow….I am feeling the energy and excitement building up inside of me now! I am going to treat myself to a lovely relaxing candle-lit bath tonight and read my fiction book…..thanks so much Nisha, I have loved every moment of this 14 Day challenge. Big hugs to you girl xxx

    I love sneak peaks in real life! Thank you so much for sharing and putting the effort into making this video of how your day flows. I have been having such a hard time getting up in the morning, if I have a trainer at the gym waiting for me that gets me out but if not I snooze and start work 10 or 11. Bad habit I cannot seem to get out of. I always take the first 90 min or more for me alone with that said. After this video I am commited to giving myself that time in the day to go outside the house and also connect with friends in person. I sometimes stay home 3 days in a row working and yes it does feel blahh afterwards. I know mindset plays a role in how much you need to sleep as well as nutrition. I am curious when do you get up in the morning Nisha and how many hours of sleep is normal for you? Thanks again xx Julia

    I watched this video last week actually and have been expired ever since. However, as soon as I said, “Wow. This the life I want,” life has gotten so hectic.

    My husband’s life keeps changing, & feel like a character in his play. Today I realized that I have to take charge of my life. He can’t fulfill my happiness completely. He’s going to fail every time because it’s not his responsibility. In the end, he’s going to do what he thinks is best for me & our family. But I’m the only one that knows (not think) what truly makes me happy. Well, who can discover what truly will make me happy. Lol….I need the “security” of knowing. I’m ready for that journey of discovery.

    As I have grow more and more, I find myself not enjoying the girlfriends I had – they are not aligned with my values and ambitions. So I left them, and now have moved into a smaller, much calmer, amazingly beautiful city which feels amazing like starting a clean slate. But now I often find myself wondering how do I go about forming a sisterhood – I naturally love deep connections but with the ones who don’t bring toxicity in my life and are there for uplifting me, enriching me and I am there for doing the same in their life. Any tips Nisha ?

    Nisha, I love the point you made that by nurturing ourselves we can be more powerful and aligned Ambassadors of our message and can make an even BIGGER impact in the world <3 I find it's easier to 'give myself permission' to nurture myself when I know it will have an impact beyond me. I've started working with a self care coach and set aside my Sacred Morning Time to pray/do daily devotionals + prepare myself for my day + and actually EAT! By labeling it Sacred it embodies the power this time holds for me… Also starting to enjoy my hobbies again, drawing/art + reading + horseback riding and overall PLAY! Thank you so much for this video series.. it has been a true blessing to me.. and from the comments, countless women!!! Sending you heartfelt gratitude <3

    Thank you for sharing a beautiful day with us, Nisha. Your day is actually almost identical to what I’d like to see for my own, although I’d probably spend a lot of time at the Chinese herb market! πŸ™‚ I work from home, and it’s so easy to get in the habit of wearing yoga pants, tanks, and flip flops all day long. My day typically begins with a 108 mantra in front of a window overlooking the woods. I light an incense (rose or nag champa), a white candle, and my favorite stones (rose quartz and malachite). I meditate for about 10 minutes, write in my journal and then do about 40 minutes of yoga (or walking). I make breakfast, get ready (meaning put on another pair of yoga pants,haha) and then sit down to work. This has given me so much more clarity and softness to my day. I do, however, wish to cultivate more sisterhood…with sisters all over the globe!

    I loved this video and that you highlighted the importance of taking breaks and simply enjoying your life. When I envision my WHY for myself and my ideal life/future, it very distinctly includes three breaks throughout the day. After watching all three videos, I dug out some notes I had made for a possible planner page and created the page (FINALLY!). I added my abundance mantra, my self-worth mantra, and a few other key daily devotions to the top. Then, I put my WHY just under that followed by “my ideal day vision” and my life mission statement.

    Beneath that, I have space to list my three most important tasks.

    Then, I added three spaces for actions to connect me to my day and to my own being, space to add three ways to add enrichment to my day (I get so busy that I don’t do those things enough!), and so on.

    I’m going to print a whole bunch and use one per day for the rest of the month. I think it will be a great way to ground myself and bring myself back to my values.

    Hi, Nisha-
    Today is Saturday and I have stayed home to finish Module 39 while my husband goes antiquing. I have been listening to you, doing laundry, getting up from my computer to do sun salutes and knitting preemie hats for a nurse who travels to remote places in the world to help. It is a sunny and beautiful late summer day here outside of Boston and I am feeling calm, productive and inspired. Tonight, my husband and I are babysitting for our 8-month-old granddaughter, but before we go, I will do some work for my day job as a special education teacher for 6th graders. I have to tell you that I too read the Dalai Lama’s quote when he said it and it hit a chord with me. I have been trying to figure out since then what I can do to help “save the world”. The way you express the importance of feeling free in one’s heart so we can help others be free in their worlds says it all. I am hungry for more.
    Thank you.

      Thanks for writing in, Tashe! My day would DEFINITELY look different with kids. I have a few dear friends with children, so I’ve had the blessing to get a peek into life with a family, and I know it brings its own challenges. What I would say is this: Start by looking at a morning and evening routine (even just 10 minutes!) that you can create for yourself, so you feel like there’s more space for you. From there, you might explore what I call “time blocking” – scheduling specific times of the day/week for hanging with the kids, homework, cooking…but also finding a few blocks for yourself or time with a friend. I know it’ll probably be less time than someone without kids has, but I wonder if you can start by incorporating a little bit more and see how it goes?

    I feel like there are soooo many shifts I need to make to life at the moment. But, I’m going to start with what I can commit to. And that is to continue building up a base of sisterhood with some like-minded ladies I’ve recently started hanging out with. I’m single and no kids, which is by choice right now, but as a soon-to-be 35yr old woman, most of my girlfriends are married or engaged,and many have kids. Not that this means we can’t still hang out, but our lives are different. I need to work on developing friendships with other freedom-lovin’ singles. So I’m committing to that, and I’m also committing to going to bed at a decent time so I can wake up refreshed in the AM and have the time available for what I like to call “slow mornings”, where I give myself time to read or just be before coming to a hectic day job.

    Reply
    • NISHA

      Wonderful commitments to yourself, Candace. I totally get that it can be a challenge to find girlfriends to hang out with, but it is totally doable with a little bit of ingenuity. Maybe you can treat it like a mini adventure or an exploration. Where can you go in your town where those ladies would hang out? Are there any social clubs or MeetUps that you could attend? Any organizations you can join? Or heck, start your own MeetUp group so they can find you. It may take some work, but so worth it. Best of luck to you, sweet one.

    Creating a morning routine has been life changing for me. Since I have a busy household I have to get up crazy early to carve out time for myself, but the results are worth it.

    I do a quick workout, dry brush my body, and shower. After slathering myself with coconut oil, I wrap up in a cozy robe and head downstairs to brew some organic fair trade coffee in my French press. I savor the coffee and sit down (on the floor, where I feel most comfortable) for some prayer/mediation/gratitude journaling. By then the coconut oil has soaked in, I get dressed, and take my dog for a walk. It is still dark and quiet, and I take that time to be truly present. I may continue my prayers or just list things I am thankful for. By the time I get home the kids start getting up and the day gets crazy. But that intentional, calm and peaceful routine really sets the stage for my day.
