In our divided world, now more than ever, we need peace and unity. That’s why I’m grateful to partner on this #sponsored post with @pkconsciousness, who is hosting #EkamWorldPeaceFestival2019, the world’s largest meditation gathering to initiate global consciousness towards peace. World-renowned transformational leaders, Preethaji and Krishnaji, have organized Ekam World Peace Festival with the intention to uplift all of humankind to a beautiful state of deep connection and awareness. Swipe up in my story to virtually join the festival through the Breathing Room, and meditate with over 1 million like-minded humans on demand or via live stream until Sept 22. The festival is covering a variety of topics including: children, nature, youth, animals, race, family, women, and the future. I don’t meditate as often as I’d like, which is a bummer, considering that I find that there’s a direct correlation between how often I meditate, and how often I experience positive synchronicities that affirm my chosen path and strengthen my connection to my own well of inner peace. I’m ready to change that reality, and create a new one. I’m starting to build my daily meditation practice by committing to tuning into the Ekam World Peace Festival everyday until it’s over. The more we find inner peace individually, the more we can collectively radiate that peace outwards to truly impact our world together. I hope you’ll join me in this transformative collective meditation experience!

Maybe you’re not tired because you’ve done too much, but because you’ve done too little of what sparks a light within you.

I read a trippy @vice article today (link in my story), about how documenting experiences for social media sharing, can impair our ability to commit those experiences to long term memory. This is especially true with the story function of Snapchat or IG, and I think I’ve always intuitively felt it. My distaste for stories began when my friends discovered them, and all of a sudden, every experience we had was being documented separately on 10 accounts at the same time. Nothing kills a group vibe like everyone being focused on showing everyone who isn’t there, how amazing their experience is. The whole thing has always felt fairly narcissistic, invasive, and generally pointless to me. That’s why I story so little, even to the detriment of my account engagement. But there is one saving grace: documenting experiences doesn’t always ruin your memories of them. It depends on your intention during the process. In order to deeply remember something, you need to experience an emotional reaction to your surroundings, that happens from being present and taking in all of the sensory information that memories are made from: the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and the tactile sensation of touch. You miss these if your face is buried in your phone. Whereas, if your intention in documenting something is derived from the significance of your emotional reaction to it, then the long term memories are still made. But how often are we really being intentionally present while storying? Not often, at least in my own experience. Let alone while adding filters, text, GIFs, and all the other “tools” that are super effective at disconnecting us entirely from our surroundings. I’m not saying don’t ever story again. I’m sure I’ll story again, and so will you. Don’t feel bad! I’m just sharing this as a reminder to be intentional as we document and share, as well as to increase our collective awareness of how often we leave the present moment to share it with people who aren’t present, and how detrimental this can be to the quality of our experiences, and even our memories of them. I’ll leave you with this question: How often do you story with the intention of being present?

Shoutout to everyone who is trying right now. Trying to stay afloat. Trying to let go. Trying to hold on. Trying to find your way. Trying to stay open. Trying to do the right thing. Trying to apologize. Trying to forgive. Trying to connect more deeply. Trying to love yourself. Trying to transcend your past. I feel you, because I’m trying too. We’re in this together. .

Between all the serene and meditative facial expressions I was trying to pull, this real one snuck in. And you know what? I like it the best. I almost didn’t share it, because my inner critic said “but this doesn’t look yogic enough.” LOL. Writing that just now made me laugh. I don’t like to make myself the judge and jury of what is or isn’t yoga, but I feel pretty sound in asserting that a genuinely deep and contemplative practice, doesn’t involve wondering whether your exterior expression will be perceived as “yogic enough”, or not, by onlookers. That is, in fact, the opposite of yoga. So I told my inner critic to back off, because this is yoga too, whether it looks peaceful or not. And here we are. Sometimes my practice is angry. Sometimes it’s sad. Sometimes it feels confused or lost. Sometimes I barely move. Sometimes I blow snot everywhere when I’m trying to do breath of fire. Sometimes I smile. Sometimes I yell. Sometimes I cry. And sometimes my practice makes me straight feel myself, like I clearly am in this photo. Such is life, and such is yoga. It’s often a lot messier than the IG version, and I’m starting to like that the best. . Outfit is @aloyoga

Repeat after me: My current situation is not my final destination. Let that sit for a moment. Then say it again. And again, and again, if you need to. When I’m struggling, I keep repeating this until it starts to feel true. Then I remember that it feels true, because it is. My current situation is not my final destination. Whether your current situation is incredible or terrible, it is temporary. This reminder helps me both in good times and in bad. Savor the good times when they come. Taste it, smell it, feel it, live it, and commit it to memory. Keep those memories close when times get tough, because they’ll help sustain you through challenges and keep you grateful. When times are tough, savor that too. Feel it, live it, and commit it to memory, because nothing lasts forever, even tough times. Keep these memories close when things start going well, because they’ll keep you humble, and grateful too. Whether life feels stormy or sunny right now, it’s temporary. The weather will always change with time. My current situation is not my final destination. Keep going.

New mantra: If I want to be happy, I have to be happy on purpose. If I want to be productive, I have to be productive on purpose. When I wake up, I won’t wait to see what type of day I’ll have. Instead, I’ll decide what type of day I’ll have, and spend the rest of the day making it so. . Thanks for the lift and the laughs @domdoesyoga! Flowing in @aloyoga

When you’re caught in that stagnant-feeling space between who you are and who you’re becoming, the road you’re traveling can feel endless, dark, and very rocky. That’s the stage I’m at in the journey that I find myself on right now, and I feel as if I end up feeling lost, and metaphorically tripping over obstacles that arise, about twice as often as usual. In case you’re feeling lost on an endless rocky road in the dark, and you need this reminder as much as I do, remember this: the things you are going through now are preparing you for the things you’ve been asking for. Keep going. . : @aubrymarie Wearing all white @aloyoga

After my last epic fail of an ice bath, for my birthday yesterday, I decided to challenge myself by starting this next turn around the sun by conquering my fear and animosity toward ice baths. My goal was to stay in for 1 minute, and I told myself that if I made it that far, or even managed to dunk my shoulders underneath this time, it would be a success. Instead, I surprised the hell out of myself and made it through 3 MINUTES! Besides the breathing exercise that @aubrymarie showed me before I started, and the anti-hypeman hypemanning from @lifeinabeachtown, both of which were super helpful in getting me through, the real game changer was nature’s best anti-anxiety medicine: true laughter. The whole experience reminded me of the value and importance of maintaining a sense of humor and lightheartedness in life, especially in its most challenging moments. Thank you to my friends from near and far who were able to come celebrate with me last night, and to everyone who sent me birthday wishes and were here in spirit. Haven’t felt so much love and gratitude in a long time. I love all of you and can’t wait to see what this next year brings... including my next ice bath, when I’ll conquer my fear of dunking my head under the water. 🥶 . BIG THANKS to @aubrymarie for filming and editing this video! You killed it! Rocking my usual @aloyoga.

Daily reminder that comparison has the power to ruin experiences and accomplishments that you should actually feel proud of. Don’t let it! Instead of comparing your experience or outcome with that of others, give yourself props for showing up accomplishing as much as you did! I wasn’t going to share this, because a big part of me felt like it was a fail, or at least could be perceived as one by people watching. I see my friends like @aubrymarie and @adellbridges jumping right in and hanging out in their ice baths, and it’s so hardcore and inspiring. Meanwhile, I didn’t even get my shoulders under, and I felt like this video made me look like a wimp and wasn’t “good enough” to share. But you know what? This is the real me, not the perfect for Instagram me, and the real me avoids cold water like the plague and never considered getting into an ice bath before. When I thought about it that way, I was able to see that, while I’m no Wim Hof in this video, I did step out of my comfort zone in a major way, just by committing to even giving an ice bath a chance. The verdict? It was paralyzingly freezing, of course, but also way more doable than I had imagined, and VERY exhilarating. In fact, I’m pretty determined to try again and again, until I can go under water and have casual conversations while I’m in there, like @calvmonster. In the meantime, instead of beating myself up and focusing only on how I could/should have gone in further, I’ll be proud of myself for making it in as far as I did, because that turned out being further than I ever thought I would go. Bring on the next ice bath! ️ . : @aubrymarie Wearing my blue haze @aloyoga, and hoping it might act like a wetsuit and keep me warmer (it did not lol).

Just because you don’t know how to do something, doesn’t mean you can’t learn to do it. Sounds simple enough, but this was the mind blowing reminder/lesson of my day today. I’ve heard it 1,000 times: starting a business means learning to do things that you don’t necessarily like doing. For me, that’s spreadsheets and numbers. These are some of my biggest weaknesses, and thus far, I had been able to skate by focusing only on the things that I found fun, interesting, or exciting. Not today. Today was about the dreaded spreadsheets and numbers. My anxiety started last night, because I knew what today held. I’ve mentioned in the past what an expert I am at procrastinating and avoiding things that I don’t understand, and I didn’t want to give in to that temptation today and fail as a leader for my team. The moment I was dreading came, when one of my partners put a blank spreadsheet in front of me and said he would teach me how to input the information. My immediate impulse was to try to shift the responsibility back onto him, and make him do it, or at least make him sit with me and ask me questions and then fill the spreadsheet in for me. It was tempting, and would feel natural, as I’ve pulled that move many a time to avoid things I don’t understand. Instead, I took a deep breath and said “Teach me.” Sure, the learning was a little uncomfortable, because it’s way easier to tell myself the story that I can’t, than it is to roll up my sleeves and actually do the work... but today I learned how to organize and populate a spreadsheet, and you know what? It made all of the numbers, that I thought I didn’t understand, make a lot more sense. I didn’t have all of the info to finish the entire sheet, but my feeling about it has completely changed. Now, instead of wanting to avoid it at all costs or pawn it off on someone else, I can’t wait to finish filling it in over the next couple weeks, and then tackle the next challenge that scares me. There’s epic empowerment in knowledge, in learning new things, so don’t be afraid to put in that extra effort on the things you don’t like doing, especially if those things scare you. You’ve got this! And so do I.

I miss the days when my yoga practice felt this light and fluid. I had such a fire to practice then, no matter the day of the week, or even how I felt mentally and physically, I was on my mat everyday, but these days that drive has been harder to find. I tell myself it’s because I’m busy, but the truth is, it’s because I’ve been being lazy. Not lazy in life at all, but definitely lazy with my yoga practice and several of my other essential self-care practices. It’s funny, because so often, the busier I get, the worse I take care of myself. Which seems counterintuitive, and it is, because the busier I get, the MORE self care I need. I tell myself excuses like “I’m too tired to practice” or “the teachers I like aren’t teaching today” or “traffic is too crazy” or “it’s too hot to meditate” or “my mat is downstairs in my car and I don’t want to go get it and bring it upstairs”, the list goes on, because I’ve been collecting these excuses for awhile. Writing them here, those excuses sound absolutely ridiculous, and even mildly embarrassing to share lol. But I’m sharing them for that very reason- so the next time I try to use any of them, I can remember this feeling of how ridiculous they sounded to me today and even the mild sense of shame I’m feeling as I write this. What are your go-to excuses for avoiding your self care? Share them in the comments and take away their power. . : Banks “Warm Water (Snakehips Remix)” Flowing in old school @aloyoga

There are 2 ways to live your life: you can trust in the branch, or you can trust in your wings. Tell me in the comments, which do you usually choose? Branch? Or wings? I feel like my mind tells me to trust the branch, but my soul tells me to trust my wings. I’m getting better at allowing my soul to make the final decision.

What else could you do with all of the time you spend on Instagram? This question has been coming up a lot for me, and I’m finding the answer daily. The answer is: A LOT, and much of it is FAR more gratifying for me than time spent here. Breaks from Instagram are feeling more and more necessary to my soul and my personal growth. I used to feel guilty taking breaks, because it felt like not showing up to work, but the soul needs what the soul needs, and I’ve been listening. I used to have endless drive to create and share here, but after 8 years, my drive is shifting to wanting to create more than just Instagram content, and I’m leaning into this impulse. So, I’m starting a new business, one where I get to create my own products. I’ve been working on what I’m creating for the last 6 months, and there’s still much work to be done before launch, but I feel a fire burning inside me, one that is getting me out of bed in the morning with a skip in my step that’s been missing for some time. I’ve been afraid to share this news, because I’ve tried to start many businesses, put in a lot of work on each one, and then let fear of failure talk me out of ever launching them. Fuck that. I’m ready to leave the habit of starting and not finishing in the past. I’m sharing this news, because I believe in what I’m creating, and by sharing it here, I make myself accountable to all of you. Now that you are all aware of my goal, for me to do anything less than launching my brand, would be a failure in itself, one that I’ve just assured will be visible to a large number of people. Yikes, but also yay! Fear of failure has stopped me in my tracks in the past, but these days I’m learning it can also be a powerful motivator when you use it correctly. What. A. Game. Changer. With just a few months until launch, I CAN’T WAIT for you to see, feel, smell, and enjoy what I’m creating. Bye fear of failure, hello personal growth and empowerment.

How you feel on the inside will impact what you see in the mirror, more than how you look on the outside ever could. Read that again. On my way back from Aruba, I lost my entire toiletry bag, which contained all of my makeup, makeup brushes, hair products, and skincare products. As any woman knows, this is quite the expensive collection of things to replace, so I’ve been slow to repurchase everything other than skincare, and have instead been living without makeup or hair products in the meantime. It’s actually been easier than I thought it would be, and that has been a big eye-opener. Losing basically my entire beauty arsenal has been inconvenient and was definitely disappointing, but @aubrymarie was there when I realized it was all lost, and she kept saying she was shocked at how much I wasn’t freaking out about losing so many things I cared about. I think that’s partly due to the self-work I’ve done to manage my freak outs lol, but also because I’ve been investing in caring for myself more than I used to, and self-care breeds self-confidence. I’m feeling more confident than I have in a long time, and unlike in the past, I no longer feel the same need to spend hours styling my hair and camouflaging my face behind layers of makeup every time I want to leave the house or snap a photo. So grateful to my glow master @sonyadakar’s treatments and products for giving me the gift of skin that doesn’t need makeup the way I used to think it did, and to @aveda/@spokeandweal for giving me the monthly gift of fresh color and a low-maintenance haircut that puts a pep in my step every single time. Great skincare and hair care are amazing, but I’m learning that the biggest self-esteem impact is actually made from me taking the time to give myself the gift of self-care. Turns out losing that bag gave me the chance to see how much I don’t even need many of the things inside it.

Going through my camera roll today following my partnership with @arubatourism, I found a few gems I hadn’t shared yet, and seeing these made me feel grateful all over again for the unforgettable wellness experience that I had in Aruba. I feel like every time after I take a vacation, I promise myself that I’ll stay in that vacation state of mind, and continue putting as much energy into my own self-care and wellbeing once I’m back home. That usually lasts for about a week before I’ve gotten too busy and fallen back into my same old routine. Thinking back on my Aruba experiences today—SUP yoga, sailing, UTV adventures, and daily yoga on the beach at the Ritz—and remembering how much calmer and deeper my breathing was there, has inspired my mind, body and soul all over again. Today I’m going to take a page out of Aruba’s #onehappyisland book and focus on enjoying life like I’m on vacation. . : @dancampbelllloyd

I was really excited to partner with @ritzcarlton during my stay in #aruba, because before I left, I heard that they had one of the nicest beaches on the island, and I couldn’t wait to see it for myself. I tried not to set any expectations, because that’s often just asking for disappointment, but I did anyway because I’m human lol... and let me tell you, disappointment was nowhere to be found! Their beach and their yummy food options majorly surpassed the expectations that I was trying not to set. Morning beach yoga and a belly full of healthy treats never fails to leave me feeling like a happy girl! 🧘‍♀️🤤 Thanks @arubatourism for the #rcmemories and for taking such great care of us on #onehappyisland! . : @dancampbelllloyd Beach yoga-ing in @aloyoga #yoga #beach #yogalife #yogalove

When I first saw this photo I was really excited to share it. All I saw then was my smile, and I loved how it made me relive how truly happy I was in this moment. Then when I actually went to post it, the negative self-talk began. I’ve had haters tell me that I look anorexic for much of my life, and to this day I have a deep-rooted insecurity around it. Anytime I see my collarbones, chest bones, or ribs being visible, that old insecurity arises and I feel like I want to hide and not be seen. I almost didn’t share it for this reason. As I stared at myself through negative eyes, I no longer noticed my smile, or the turquoise water behind me. All I could see were my visible chest bones, and I started to tell myself a shitty story about my body. But you know what? F*ck. That. I’m sharing this photo anyway, and I’m choosing to see the things I love about it and my body, rather than the things I could hate. I could write a simple happy caption, and I’m sure many of you would in fact notice my smile and the color of the water more than my chest bones, but I’m sharing this story instead, because I want to remind you that we all have insecurities, no matter how it seems on Instagram. I hope this inspires you to join me in saying “f*ck that!” the next time your insecurities arise and confuse you into thinking you are anything less than beautiful just the way you are. Too skinny, too fat, too tall, too short. These are all labels that society and marketing try to assign us, and none of them are true. I’m sharing this, because it’s the reminder that I myself needed today, and if you need it too, then I’m happy you landed on this post. You are beautiful and so am I, visible chest bones and all. . : @dancampbelllloyd

I’m determined to try new things as often as I can, and always keep learning, so I was stoked to partner with @kinikinitours to take my first ever UTV ride! We went on an epic tour around the island where we saw natural pools, natural bridges (like the one I’m standing on), goats, bats, and some pretty incredible caves. At first I was afraid to drive the UTV, but once I got behind the wheel, my fear dissipated and was replaced by a big smile on my face and a nice dose of adrenaline in my veins. Turns out I really like driving UTVs! Who knew? Thanks @arubatourism for organizing this chance for me to step out of my comfort zone and find a new activity that I really enjoy! . +: @dancampbelllloyd : Franc Moody “Lunar” Wearing my fave @aloyoga outfit #kinikinitours #onehappyisland

So grateful to partner with @arubatourism, because today I woke up in Aruba and it’s beautiful! ️ I’ve been traveling a lot lately, and it’s been awesome, but honestly also exhausting, so I’m making this trip all about relaxing, having fun, and rejuvenating my mind, body, and soul. 🧘‍♀️ There’s a ton that I can’t wait to do here on #onehappyisland, but I couldn’t think of a better way to kick things off than to get on a SUP board with @velaaruba and work out the kinks that always come with long flights. After an hour of SUP #yoga, floating over some of the clearest and most turquoise water I’ve ever seen, I feel renewed...and did I mention grateful? #velaaruba . : @dancampbelllloyd
