✨Healthy Habit✨ In order for me to generally, stay sane 🤣 and also, as a massage therapist, be able to really support you, I’ve got to take good care of myself ... 👏One way I do this is by starting my day (most days) with some quiet contemplation- my morning ritual.

These photos of a ground squirrel admiring some Austrian flowers are probably guaranteed to turn any frown upside down.

🌼Feel good news that makes ya go, awwwww: https://buff.ly/2ZKaVFT "While it might look like the squirrel is simply taking the time to appreciate the foliage, the squirrel was in fact on the hunt for the tastiest blossom of the bunch."

💗Gratitude💗 At the risk of sounding dramatic.... massage has changed my life! ➡️How about you? How has massage changed YOU? ... Over a decade ago I went to trade school. Here I thought, ‘sure, I wanna be my own boss, sounds good’. Massage school, however, ended up being a catalyst for massive self-improvement. I often say, if I had know then, just how much personal growth I ‘would have to’ undergo as a result of school (and the whole entrepreneurship thang), I never would have done it🤣 ... Of course, now, I can’t imagine it any other way. I’m oh so grateful for all the lessons learned. One of the biggest lessons learned...I have got to✨GET BACK INTO MY BODY✨outta my head, into my body. HOW? Any way possible. Dance, massage, garden, cook, swim, walk, play hide and seek, what ever feels good! MOVE THYSELF. And, as a result, I’m more authentic, connected and open hearted💗I may not have thought I needed to get back into my body then, but I sure do THRIVE, as a result of doing so now. 🙏🙏🙏 #massage #massagetherapist #massagetherapists #massagetherapistlife #grateful

One of the most common questions I get asked is, 'what does is REALLY take to grow a massage practice?' For me, I've had to strengthen three areas of my life in order to meet my definition of success (and they're all a works-in-progress!)🔥 ✏️Business Savviness: I hired a business coach who taught me how small business works and how it could work for me **hint: it's not JUST about promoting yourself** 😀Emotional Resilience: entrepreneurship is a roller coaster and I had to learn how to manage my emotions 💛Self care: I can't create something in this world (and then give you a massage) if I'm burned out and not caring for myself ... This work will probably never really be done, but I'm stronger now more than ever. ➡️Boost your business confidence with my FREE Ebook: Make More Money, Faster: https://buff.ly/2nFnXCg

✨Healthy habit✨ Take a walk in nature. You never know what you might find💗💗💗 ... No hiking this time, just a gentle walk on a neighborhood nature trail. ... Three things: 1) this very large rock-heart was a sweet reminder that while there’s plenty to feel overwhelmed by, there’s also some light✨✨Sometimes I don’t even have to go looking for it. 2) I usually like to, ya know, work hard, play hard. Recently, I’ve been practicing a slow-your-roll approach. Adopting the ‘What if I can still move my body, take care of myself and get sh*t done without burnout?!’😮now there’s a thought🤣 3) it was actually cloudy and cool and I actually had to put a flannel on😱 ... #reallife #massagetherapists #massagetherapist #massagetherapistlife #massagecoach #nature #selfcare #wonder

🌵mini adventure time🌵so I decided to mix it up... you know, last minute. I saw the trailhead and decided to go. No biggie, right? I‘m committed to finding new nature scapes and places for me to play since the weather is oh so nice 👍 ... Lessons learned from the spontaneity➡️ *don’t depend on the hiking app alone. Look at a real map ahead of time and know the surroundings (at least generally!) *bring a camelback so I don’t have to carry the dang water bottle *wear my dust approved shoes (fo real) *lean into the ‘oh my gosh I’m out here alone, so tiny in this nature trail’ feels *just because I don’t see another ‘hiker’ (cause I don’t really deserve that title), doesn’t mean I’m on a ‘wrong’ trail (just feels SO weird cause there’s SO many people everywhere out here 🤣) ... Often times, all I have to do is go somewhere new in my own backyard to quell that travel-bug...seriously. ... ✨When you’re not massaging, business building or you’re just doing your work thang, what brings a sense of newness and adventure to your life?✨ ... #massagetherapistlife #massagetherapistlifestyle #massagelife #massagecoach #adventure #selfcare #recharge #massagementor #whenimnotworking

This Penguin swims 5,000 miles every year for a reunion with the man who saved its life

adaptnetwork.com

Each year Din Din spends approximately eight months with Joao and is believed to spend the rest of the time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile.

Some good news for you: "I think the penguin believes Joao is part of his family and probably a penguin as well. When he sees him he wags his tail like a dog and honks with delight.” https://buff.ly/2NQ8Twv
