Mondays Mindfulness Message SIT WITH YOURSELF IN INTENTIONAL SILENCE . . When was the last time you sat, no phone in hand, no music, no fidgeting, no hot man or lady massaging your shoulders 😁 no distractions - just you - sitting with yourself? Still. Have you ever done this? . . Find a spot & sit. . . 💓Tune in to what you hear, listen deeply to sounds close to you & then those far away. 💓Tune in to what thoughts you have - is your mind overcrowded with junk & negative thoughts or worrying thoughts - let them go. If you do this often silence will help you learn to shape your thoughts. . 💓What do you notice about your surroundings? 💓What sensations do you feel in your body? . 💓What emotions come up for you? 💓What challenges arise? . It takes courage to be still. To face yourself. For some to not talk or not move. To tune in to what is going on internally. To not be stimulated for a time. . . But the benefits are epic. If you ever need a mood boost or some clarity of mind then sit in silence for a bit. When we give our brains time to rest we access a more intuitive form of thinking. Do this especially if you have that "monkey brain" going on. . I love it & do this most mornings before I meditate. . . Tim Kreider wrote in The New York Times recently, "the space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration — it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done". . . Give it a try everyday this week, just 5 minutes a day then name 3 things you are grateful for & 3 things you want to call in for your life. See what things silence will teach you.

Your ultimate travel hack for comfy flying - STRETCH pre, during & post flight & pranayama. Doesn't matter where you are in the airport even the @airnz #kor#korulounge or in your seat just get it done. . . . Make sure to release hip flexors, piriformis, groin/hip area before your flight & after so a good pigeon pose, frog pose, a few downward dogs & walk them, low lunge, thread the needle & a butterfly will help. . . Also take a tennis ball to roll on. Def do your hip flexors with this & glutes. You can use it on your seat. . . On the plane always grab a pillow for lower back support & do alternative nostril breathing once you sit to settle in. (Sit straight spine - relax. Using the thumb and ring finger of the right hand, close the right nostril with the thumb, exhale, and then inhale through the left nostril. Close the left nostril with the ring finger and exhale and inhale through the right nostril). . Here's just a few easy stretches to do on the plane; ✅seated cat cow ✅seated twist - plant your feet firmly on the floor. Extend your left arm and place your left hand on the outside of your right knee, and slowly twist to the right. Then do the other side. ✅seated figure 4 to release your back and hips. Bend your right knee, lift and place your right ankle - flex foot on your left knee or thigh, and begin to fold at the hips. -alternate knee lifts ✅neck side to side ✅eagle arms (yogis) - self hug - wrap arms around body hands touching shoulder blades and hug hard out ✅forward fold ✅rotate ankles & flex & point . . Or if you feel like a good Ab workout do a few pelvic tilts . . And skull the water - more than you think you should have. . . . 👍If you have any stretches you do while flying drop it in the comments.👍 . . . . . . . . #wheresjoholley #wheretonext #korulounge #airnz #travelhost #travelblogger #planetips #iflyoften #flighthacks #health #wellness #fitness #ilovemyjr #traveller #aroundtheworld #tipsforlife #lifestylespecialist #howtofly #flybetter #betterliving

Shoutout to all the buddies around the world doing the #f45#f458weekchallenge Yaaaaaas let's get it team. I'll be there in amongst my travels cranking away with my massive "2kg" weights & modified moves. Just goes to show buddies that even with a wrist injury (which is healing wooohooo) & a lower back "change" 🤣👌you can still get in the mix, get a workout, be a part of the fun vibe & a part of the team. You just have to listen to your body & modify. Stop, go slow, go hard out..stand around and talk like @augustinebykellycoe & @makaiacarr @shavaughn_ruakere 😂😂 it is all cool. Just get in there & start. (Hahaha they go hard) Injuries - tell the trainers so they can make moves up to suit you. And ask your specialists what moves to avoid & which will help. Also, compliment this training with stretching, yin yoga, pilates & your rehab. Nutrition is key & I know my body loves healthy food - when I eat all the things all the time It shows me with some wonble wobble 🤣🤣🤣 Loving the meal plan! My body loves gluten free, dairy free & super low sugar = no acid reflux!!!! Wanna try #f45 & train with us then follow the link in my bio for a week free See you in the morn @f45trainingtamaki team! Can't wait to hotstep it in there 🤣🤣 . #fearlesslyfemale #wheresjoholley
