Don’t let anxiety get in the way today! Try this at home and sail through the day. With serene love from me to you.

Eating out does not have to be unhealthy. With so much time on the road I have learned to eat in the #iamyou #detoxtoretox way wherever I go. Here I’ve gone for a trio of salads as opposed to the lamb shank and other heavier, non green options. Same restaurant. Different choices. Very easy.

Let’s tone those abs this weekend, shall we? Promised to be painless.

TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

I am just gonna come straight out and say it - camping and I are not one.  It’s not that I don’t love nature – actually, I adore it, especially sleeping under a huge star filled sky as I do for a couple weeks sailing every summer- but rainy knolls, dirt, and muddy, likely snake and eel infested lakes to ‘shower’ in are not quite my thing.  Funnily, this was precisely the setting for my teachings at the sold out 30,000 person Wilderness Festival this past weekend, and I had a blast.
 
There in my rainboots, stealing extra napkins from any refreshment stand to use as future toilet paper, I pushed the boundaries of what I consider to be “me,” and in doing so became more in tune with my current state of being.  I danced in the rain, slept in a sleeping bag on the wet grass in the middle of the dance floor, and then went to work the next morning, energized and excited. Alongside Sian Sutherland of Mio Skincare, I taught on Positivity, Energy, and Creating True Happiness, led an I.AM.YOU. class on the main stage with her dressed as Elvis by my side (see pics, not kidding), and spoke on the extreme levels of wellness that have permeated our societies.  When I was working, I was in my element entirely…. Even with my neon orange festival headdress and tattoos on… which made me remember that we can all be in the element anywhere, anytime, because of yoga.
 
Yoga, like the Wilderness Festival for me this past weekend, is meant to push our boundaries and take us to the wild side of who we really are.  There, in that space between where we feel comfortable and where we actually are in that moment is where we discover our true selves and our true capabilities.  Only when out of our comfort zone can we clearly see how dynamic our true nature is, and how naturally our inner dynamism exists.
 
If that isn’t a reason to jump on the mat, borrow a sleeping bag, or do something crazy, I don’t know what is.
