Our Directors living their best lives at the Mind . Body . Balance event last weekend. 🙂🙂 . Repost • @simonerootsyoga Well done for putting on such a great day and event in support of Mental Health Awareness Week @aqartslondon and @mindbodybalanceuk!!! Grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it and get to know so many beautiful, amazing and inspiring people! Still feeling all the love 💗 . .

Don’t give up! We have all been in that place, learning to be comfortable being uncomfortable can take time! But you learn to adapt and overcome, both in the mat and off the mat. You will get there one step at a time, every minute on the mat is an investment in your Jiu Jitsu. Best part is you never stop learning and there is still always someone who can make you feel like this no matter what colour belt is around your waist! 😆🙌🏻🙏🏻👊🏼🥋 You can join the mission and help support REORG Jiu Jitsu Foundation! Go to 👉 www.tatamifightwear.com The full range of REORG kit is available produced by Tatami Fightwear! Proceeds of the REORG Range directly support the REORG Jiu Jitsu Foundation through Tatami Fightwear.

Lunch is a laughing cow and cucumber toasted sandwich with cherry tomatoes, penguin biscuits 🐧 and a passionfruit alpro yogurt. Thank you so so so much for all of your support yesterday, I am still trying to reply to all of you and I will today I don't want you to think I am ignoring you. All of your kindness means so so much to me. I will be heading back to the unit this afternoon. Since Wednesday I have been having one night at home and then one at the unit so alternating. It has been ok but I have found it a bit unsettling. I find myself doing nothing at home because I feel like there isn't time to get into it as I have to leave again shortly. I guess mostly I am just anxious. But this morning I decopaged a cat 🐱 that was good but I feel a little low now because this morning was the first time of me being settled enough to do something and now I have to go back again and I don't like that environment, its very busy. Oh well, I don't know if I am making sense. Hopefully it won't be for too long now. I hope you are all having a good day and if not then try to focus on one tiny positive even silly things like I always know my day is brightened when I where my avo socks 🥑

Made the mistake of lying down having got home from retreat and I may never get up again 😬 Had probably the best hot stone massage of my life to round off three days of non-stop phys, and I’m more relaxed than I’ve been in months...even years?? Definitely taking a few things forwards from this weekend: 1) I’m going to find the time to do more yoga myself, 2) Epsom salts are the one, 3) I’m going to eat more - I’ve eaten way more than usual and I’ve had the energy for 3 x workouts a day, 4) I’m going to have more faith in my body to do as much exercise as I want to instead of being afraid of overdoing it, 5) I’m going to relax more. I just don’t do it enough. I worry too much and it’s got to stop! Life is a gift and I want to make the most of it 🙏

I am a doctor and I am proud of it. But I want to take a moment and tell you something that is currently happening in this country. Despite doctors having the appearance of confident, smart and joyful people, our profession has one of the highest incidence of suicides. Especially males, anesthesiologists and emergency physicians. I just want to send a message to medical students and new residents: it’s ok to feel sadness, frustration and confusion. Despite what you see, we ALL experience it. Please, speak up. Talk to someone. We should. Help me spread the word about this issue. Thank you for reading this message and thank you to @wearfigs for allowing to spread this important message. Let’s fight this together ——————————————Soy médico y estoy orgulloso de ello. Pero quiero tomarme un momento y contarles algo que está sucediendo actualmente en este país. A pesar de que los médicos tienen la apariencia de personas seguras, inteligentes y alegres, nuestra profesión tiene uno de las mayores incidencias de suicidios. Especialmente varones, anestesiólogos y médicos de urgencias. Solo quiero enviar un mensaje a los estudiantes de medicina y a los nuevos residentes: está bien sentir tristeza, frustración y confusión. A pesar de lo que ves, TODOS lo experimentamos. Por favor, alza la voz. Habla con alguien. Ayúdame a correr la voz sobre este tema. Gracias por leer este mensaje y gracias a @wearfigs por permitir difundir este importante mensaje. Luchemos juntos —————————————

Negativity never does any good! Not in business nor in private life. No matter how difficult the situation, allow your self to cry about it for a limited time, but then stop! Let go! Find ways to change what bothers you, but lamentation over and over again is toxic to you and your environment!

💚🖤💚P.S.A: PAY ATTENTION TO your friends🖤💚🖤You never know how something is affecting someone or what they would do to escape the pain they are in. 🖤💖🖤💖🖤Good friends are hard to come by and you don’t want to lose any especially to something avoidable like suicide 💖🖤💖🖤

It's a little quiet over here at the moment with final exams but here's a friendly reminder that FOOD IS FUEL. One thing I always struggle with around exam times was justifying eating a lot when "I'm sat around all day". Well guess what girl? Your body still needs food! I have not spent four years at university only to fail my final exams because I'm too hungry to concentrate. You have permission to eat, you don't need to earn it. You don't need to do exercise, be in a good mood, wait until a certain time, weigh a certain amount, blah blah blah... Your body still needs food. YOU. NEED. TO. EAT. That is all. ✌🏼

May you listen to the voice within the beat even when you are tired. When you feel yourself breaking down, may you break open instead. May every experience in life be a door that opens your heart, expands your understanding, and leads you to freedom. If you are weary, may you be aroused by passion and purpose. If you are blameful and bitter, may you be sweetened by hope and humor. If you are frightened, may you be emboldened by a big consciousness far wiser than your fear. If you are lonely, may you find love, may you find friendship. If you are lost, may you understand that we are all lost, and still we are guided—by Strange Angels and Sleeping Giants, by our better and kinder natures, by the vibrant voice within the beat. May you follow that voice, for This is the way—the hero’s journey, the life worth living, the reason we are here. -Elizabeth Lesser

New grip socks = more motivation... right??? Not like I'm addicted to buying new socks or anything.... 😳

⋆Covering my butt with a butt! As if the world wasn't confusing enough 😜 I keep thinking back to when I went to Siberia this autumn, I was supposted to study electrical engineering at this prestigous university here in Stockholm, which would have lead me to a pretty straight forward career path with high salary and you know... Stability? Security? So it seemed pretty damn appealing, especially when you try to prove to yourself and everyone else that you ARE stabile and you ARE normal and you DO have things under control, which is what I've been trying to do an entire life time (it's sort of an reflex you get when you grow up in a family with various mental issues, including yourself, and you try to 'cover up' for that fact). So it was the bravest decision I've made so far in my life when I decided to not study, and instead go pretty much across the world to Siberia, to be with the love of my life in this crazy new environment that's pretty much the opposite of everything I had experienced so far. Aaaand if you're someone with CRAZY, CRAZY trust issues, especially in relationships, it's a PRETTY big challenge to be isolated and dependent on a partner like that in a different country, both me and Mark knew it would be a great challenge but holy crap 😂 I remember sitting outside in the cold and rain for HOURS because I was so fucking anxious I couldn't even feel my body or me freezing, and as soon as Mark tried to get me back to the house I just started screaming and freaking out, and at the time it was a nightmare, but now I can't help but laughing about it 😂 our compromise that night was to put me in his tractor with a bottle of Kahlua hahaha. And amongst all of those outburst I got, we also had time to sleep right under the out of this world freaking night sky they have there, climb up mountains, chase away cows from his house, hang out with his kitty, plan for the future, take aroma baths together and take care of each other and just being US with no distractions. And slowly I just stopped trying to be normal, like a therapist told me a few weeks ago, I'm FLAWLESSLY instabile 😂 and that's fine for now I guess haha? 😂⋆ ⋆ Peace, Sophia

Monday Motivation! Be still today and let the Lord make it great. Do use Monday’s or Sunday’s to set the tone for your week? What does “setting the tone” mean to you?

Back to bacon.

Home Style Workout 🥵 ******* When you get delayed and miss your normal Monday morning boxing class 😣 instead of missing out on my exercise all together I opted for a home based workout. ********* Quick 15 minute workout 👇👇 ********* Skipping x 1 min (or running on spot) Kettlebell Swings x 1 min (Push Ups) Box Jumps x 1 min (use the stairs if you don't have a box) Kettlebell Squats x 1 min (just use bodyweight) ********* Rest x 1 min ********* Repeat x 2 ********* Give it a try. ********* If you don't have equipment don't worry try the alternatives in brackets 😁
