Thoughts i’ve been pondering the last few days...⁣

how do you take care of yourself during fuller times of life, whether that be seasons when you have more on the go or just day-to-day managing your priorities? ⁣

how can you build your daily resiliency so you can really thrive during these times and not burn out? ⁣

i believe it’s not about striving for balance or fighting against the fullness of your schedule but rather striving to build small moments of self-care into your day or week that have big impact - practices that help to build your emotional resiliency and resiliency to stress.⁣

we can put pressure on ourselves feeling as though we need to be balanced but for most of us that’s not realistic all of the time. we may go through phases of life where we do feel balanced and then others where our lives are more heavily weighted towards career, family, self-growth, healing, etc. and thats ok! it’s all ok. ⁣

what about reframing it to finding ease in the effort (something @kait.hurley talks about a lot), like learning to breathe deeply and mindfully throughout a demanding day or taking 30 seconds to shift your mindset from “i have to do” to “i get to do” ⁣

creating and implementing mini self care moments is something i work with my clients on and can be such a powerful tool because it’s a practice that is realistic to integrate into a full schedule, making it sustainable for the long term. ⁣

if this resonates with you, and you could use some support in building a lifestyle of wellness, please reach out - i’d love to connect🥰 ⁣

I’m going to be 30 in less than 3 weeks! 🙋🏼‍♀️⁣

yes, i’m so excited about it and you may think i’m crazy 😂 but guys seriously this is the overall happiest (yes i still have many up and downs - case in point my stories yesterday) i’ve been in my whole life and the most i’ve ever felt like my true & authentic self. ⁣

this past year or so i’ve worked through and identified so many limiting beliefs that have held me back since i was just a lil baby jam (if you don’t know, my nickname is jam - it’s my initials and as a kid i was called jenny jam 🍓) i’ve made major breakthroughs especially around not needing to find approval or validation from others to just be myself. ⁣

leading up to my 30th bday i’m reflecting on things i’ve learned and major growth points. i wanted to share a few i have on my list so far:⁣
💫 know that to make things happen you can’t wait for someone else to come to you, you can’t will something to fruition by overthinking about it. you have to take actions! even small baby steps ⁣
💫you don’t have to wait for someone else to recognize something in you before you feel worthy of it - you can be worthy all on your own without anyone else’s validation or acceptance ⁣


i’m in major reflection mode this month and i’m loving it. what are some of your reflections or things you wish your younger self knew? ⁣

I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with so many incredible likeminded women over the past few months, through workshops, events or 1:1 coaching 🥰 ⁣

i’m starting to feel the momentum pick up in my business and it feels good! i’m honestly blown away every single day that i get to do the work i’m doing and feel so genuinely aligned with it. i feel like i have such purpose along with passion, and i’m in such flow! ✨ bring it on world, let’s friggen do this 👊🏼⁣

the in-person connection i’ve experienced has been so powerful and all i want to do is support you with more of that! i have a couple events coming up in april that i couldn’t be more excited about:⁣
🌷 girls night in, wellness style - april 5th @theweddingstudy (i turn 30 the next day so i’ll be feeling all of the good vibes! yes, i’m stoked to turn 30 💯)⁣
🌷 a holisitic approach to building stress resiliency - april 14th @junction_9
both events are open to absolutely anyone! i’ve had a lot on the go lately that is bridal wellness focused so i’m excited to open a few things up to any lovely lady (or gentleman) who feels called to joining me 💓⁣

Over the past few months i’ve been putting myself outside of my comfort zone like crazy. as a new entrepreneur there are a million new things coming my way every single day (mostly in the best way, sometimes not 😂) ⁣

all of the newness, uncertainty and growth has really tested my nervous system but has also shown me how much resiliency i have. ⁣

the more i speak at events, facilitate workshops or coach clients 1:1, the more i get into my flow and can be grounded and feel present while doing it. as i do these things, i’m building up my trust muscle with myself and am toning my nervous system - proving to myself that i’m worthy of being here and i have value to add. ⁣

with all of that said it’s been so essential that i have a solid self-care routine and know how to support myself during this time of growth that tends to bring on more stress. ⁣

one of the practices i’ve started integrating is taking cbd oil ✨ i’m so grateful to be collaborating with @icaria.co a canadian company out of vancouver who advocates for women’s health and empowers women to put themselves first💯 in trying it out this past month, i’ve already noticed some incredible benefits like:⁣
▫️ reduced inflammation and pain (i had a sore wrist for a few weeks and couldn’t go into a plank or put any pressure on it - i took a good dose of cbd and the next day the pain was gone. i’m not kidding!🙌🏼 this was a total surprise to me bc that wasn’t my intention when taking the dose the day before. it’s also helped me with headaches and p*s cramping❣️) ⁣
▫️lowered anxiety and better stress resiliency (i’ve been taking it anytime i’m anxious or nervous like before events or workshops, and i’ve noticed that i’m way more grounded and calm - let’s be honest i’m still sweating like crazy 😂 but my mind is much more still) ⁣

have any of you lovelies tried cbd? what was your experience? ⁣

Sometimes we all need a little reminder to just.breath ✨⁣

the power of a deep inhale / exhale can transform our state from stressed and anxious to calm (i.e. parasympathetic) in a matter of seconds. it’s one of our greatest most easily accessible tools and we need to use it more.⁣

i wish you lovelies many deep breathes this weekend 🧘🏼‍♀️✌🏼 ⁣

Negative self-talk is basically the negative voice in your head that makes you feel bad about yourself or tells you that you can't do things. as @melissaambrosini would say, your "inner mean girl".⁣

at our @yycgather event on monday we were joined by 20 beautiful ladies to discuss this theme and man, it’s something that deeply impacts all of us so much. ⁣

i felt so compelled to share that shifting this negative self-talk isn't about just "thinking positive" (which can actually encourage us to mask the root of the issue), it's about getting curious with ourselves as to why we're having these negative thoughts, where are they coming from? is it a limiting belief? for example, is your self-talk saying that you can’t do that because you’re not as good / cool / confident as that other “better” person? well where is that coming from, maybe it’s the limiting belief that you’re not worthy or maybe it’s a fear of rejection. diving deeper is essential!⁣

it's also about being compassionate and gentle with ourselves when negative thoughts come up - the more we beat ourselves up and believe we shouldn't be thinking this way ( i.e. "you know better!"), the more of a negative downward spiral we can get into. no matter how much we work on this, we will all have days where these thoughts take over. and that’s ok! it’s all about gently shifting back into a more positive space and knowing that these thoughts don’t have power over you - you aren’t them and they aren’t you! ⁣

This spread is 💯😍⁣

one of my favourite activities is going to @chaptersindigo to peruse the wellness / food / self-help sections. 100% of the time i end up buying more then i came for and sometimes (more than i care to admit😂) i don’t fully read the books i bring home 🤷🏼‍♀️ ⁣but they still make me happy so i’m ok with it!

these two books will be different though! they’re two i’ve had my eye on for many months now and actually can’t believe i haven’t read the untethered soul yet. it seems to be a classic and i have a feeling it’ll be a go-to for me, similar to @gabbybernstein the universe has your back✨⁣

the highly sensitive person by elaine aron is work i’ve been following for a long time but i wanted to get my hands on the book for some client research 👌🏼 and let’s be honest...for my own benefit too #hsplife⁣

are you a hsp (highly sensitive person)? do you have one in your life? i’d love to hear your experience. ⁣

I talked on my stories this morning about meditation and how i’ve started using the @insighttimer app ✨⁣

i’ve already experienced benefits from using it before bed and first thing in the mornings. at night i’ve found it helpful in calming and relaxing not only my mind, but my body physically. my favourite is a yoga nidra meditation for sleep because it goes through a body scan that brings me out of my head (not an easy feat 😂) and into my body, mindfully relaxing it one area at a time. ⁣

my relationship with meditation has been one of knowing it’s good for me and trying it out here and there but never really getting hold of the benefits or truly understanding it from an experience perspective. i’ve had pockets of experiencing a meditative state like in acupuncture sessions or a yoga nidra class but not so much on my own at home - until i started using this app. ⁣

for me having something guided is essential. it helps to keep my mind focused on something and it tends to wander less than if i was trying to meditate in silence. ⁣

there are so many powerful benefits from meditating but one of my favourites is that it helps to build our resiliency to stress and lowers reactivity to triggers (i.e. helps us to take a breath in a tense moment and be mindful before reacting) ⁣

i’ll be integrating this new habit into my everyday and am excited to keep you all posted with how it goes🙏🏼 ⁣

i’d love to hear what your favourite ways to meditate are? ⁣

Everyone has mental health. just like we all have physical health. it’s another component of our holistic being. we are not one dimensional, we are not only a physical body. ⁣

caring holistically for our own wellness to me means putting just as much emphasis on our mental and emotional health as it does our physical health. ⁣

it means taking the time to bring awareness to how we’re feeling and asking ourselves why we might be feeling that way. and it’s about reaching out for help and support on a regular basis whether it be from friends/family, or a practitioner you trust. ⁣

my experience with my own mental health and with those i love is not one of labels or that can easily be explained - as it is for most of us. it’s complex and only we’ve lived it and know it. yes i’ve experienced things like anxiety, stress, emotional distress etc but those things don’t define me and they don’t define my experience. there’s so much more colour to them that can’t be put simply into words or labels. ⁣

i think it’s important to recognize that and know that even if you can’t label or put clear words to what you’re feeling but you know you don’t feel good or happy in whatever way, then you deserve to reach out for support. you don’t need to have perfect words to explain it. you don’t need to even understand it yourself yet. i can guarantee the person on the receiving end will listen with compassion and will likely surprise you with how much they do understand you. ♥️⁣

...and all you have to do is access it babes✨⁣

i find so often we reach for things external to ourselves to try and become whole or worthy.⁣

but really we’ve already got it all inside. it’s just a matter of tapping in...peeling back the layers and trusting yourself and your intuition. ⁣

we’ve been so programmed to not listen to our gut and instead stay cerebral & analytical. which has a time and place. but what happens if next time you get quiet and see what your intuition is telling you? what pings are you getting? ⁣

you might be surprised with the wisdom that lies within 👁♥️⁣
