2 years??? I miss Chris. Why does it take a death for family to take time for one another?? I miss every face in this picture. Chris, Ad and I grew up together...on the lake. Our grandfathers are brothers. Their parents are like my second set of parents. Chris taught me to water ski. Life got too busy and we all grew apart. He didn't get the chance to teach my kids to water ski. He was taken way too soon. I miss this. #takethetime#makethememories#txgirlinnwok#strongsexymomof5#family#deathsucks
6 weeks to goooo!! She is almost at her full length at this point, about the size of a 🍍, & should be roughly 5.25 pounds.
She was a TROOPER with her first ✈️ 'ride' to Michigan & back home to KC. Still kickin, jabbin, & rolling around just as active as ever!!
We are beyond thrilled to meet our lil one & are starting to tackle our to do list slowly but surely (like packing that hospital bag🙊)!!
. 🤰📱Tip to my fellow expecting friends: Download some apps!! I've used 'The Bump', 'What To Expect', & 'Baby Story'! For your spouse get 'Daddy Up'👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼. .
“Millions of people never analyse themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realise complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress”. 🐛🦋 #takethetime#checkinwithyourself#selfanalysis#selflove#respect#choosecompassion#lifeisajourneynotadestination#enjoytheride
Feels so good 😊 ! Thankful for a day to rest and catch up. This is my DAY 1️⃣ of a 60 day Challenge 👊🏻 . I’m committing to myself to be intentional in my daily habits and rhythms. Part of this is taking care of my body 👍🏻. I can do this and I will do this! Nothing worthwhile and life changing is going to be easy but I don’t want easy anymore! I’ve learned it’s through the “hard” stuff that I can choose my attitude, the position of my heart ♥️ , what I’m going to let take up headspace, and grow 🌱from it. So, bring it on!! Who wants to join me? I’m not alone 👭👫. I’ve got a team of friends that are ready to cheer 🎉me on, share great ideas and see it through to the end! Are you ready? Comment so I can cheer 👏🏻 you on! #journeytogether#bringit#mycommunity#shareyourstory#friendship👭 #guthealthmatters#drinkmorewater#walkmore#youcandothis#beintentional#takethetime

Lately (like for the past month) I have been working crazy hours. I haven’t been taking more than 10 minutes tops for lunch, working a full day, closing the computer and walking 10 steps to start right into making supper, then eating supper and heading out the door to teach. Which mean more often than not my first real moment to relax happens when I hit the tub.
This week I’m working to stop that by taking 30 minutes to read after I gobble down my lunch, and quitting work at least 30 minutes before I start supper so I can get a little decompression time and stop feeling so darn frazzled.
Sure I still have lots of work to do, but working myself into a burnout is not going to help anyone.
What little thing can you do this week to better support yourself?
What is on your schedule ?
It is so important to take time once a week to reflect on your schedule from the previous week ... what worked well, what you weren’t able to complete ( to assess if it is important and does it need to be brought foreword to the following week) and see what you accomplished.
It is also important once a week to sit and plan out your week ahead, start with the absolutely have too’s, priorities and non negotiables.... like your work days/shifts, family priorities and self care routines etc... a lot of people do this on Sunday before their week starts ... for me it changes a bit from week to week with my shifts at work ... the routine of the abnormal routine of a shift worker... sometimes my Sunday is actually a Tuesday.
Doesn’t matter, just make sure you plan it out.
And finally one of the most important tips, look at your schedule (especially if you are feeling you have no time) is it dominated by activities that better your life ?
OR is it dominated by other’s wants and needs ?
Saying NO to things can actually improve your life !! Saying NO can prevent the overwhelm of over commitment ... been there done that many times. It can prevent frustration when you aren’t getting the things you had planned ... again because you put other’s wants ahead of your own ( can you say people pleaser ... #guilty) !?
So I encourage you, take the time to plan out the days in your week, starting with your values and priorities.
Once you have all the priories and non negotiables in place ... then you can add in the other stuff, in the pockets of time you have.
I promise, you will fill better for doing it, better because you took care of you, better because you accomplished all the things important to you ... and you’ll feel better because you will have time left over ... if you set the priorities and keep the boundaries in place.
If it isn’t scheduled, it doesn’t get done ... that is why I even schedule and write in my self care and morning routine ... so it gets done !! #plan#schedule#you#life#healthy#happy#nonnegotiables#priorites#firstthingsfirst#rachelhollis#takethetime#newweek#planitout#mind#body#soul#shiftework#nurselife

Dig deeper & listen more!👂 Take the TIME!⏰ . -
Sometimes your clients will “spill the beans!” This elite #soccer ⚽️ player had chronic low back pain during soccer & when sitting in school. We did everything right in the clinic. She did everything that she was supposed to, but the back pain was not going away.
We kept prodding and poking around what she did outside the clinic & then she started to go off 📣 about how she’s amazing at holding a 5min. plank! 🙄She’s so good that she even does it every day! 😤 So I asked her to show me & there it was . . . The classic droopy old 🐴!
Quick round of show-and-tell, education & a few corrections & now she could only hold that plank for 30sec. before loosing form quickly. She & I have some work ⚒ to do, but now she has a shot of no back pain . . .💥 EVER! #movehealchange@totalptnj#totalptnj
"The more shared past there is in a relationship, the more present you need to be." - Eckhart Tolle⠀
How often are you sitting with your spouse, partner, parent, child, and/or sibling and you both are on your phones - together but separated by your own electronic worlds? ⠀
On one hand it is nice to be so comfortable in a relationship that you don't feel the need to entertain one another, but it also can become very easy to fall into a rut of making assumptions or avoiding communication.⠀
We tend to bring our "A-game" in the beginning of a relationship - asking questions and being very keenly ware of BEing present with the other person, but over time this can fall to the wayside. ⠀
My mother once told me that my sisters and I needed her and my father more as teenagers than we did as young children. The common narrative often assumes the opposite. ⠀
If we are continuing to grow as people, then there are always new ways to BE Present with someone that you have shared a long past with.⠀
How can you create time and space to BE present with those who have been in your life for a long time? ⠀
Crazy bright full wolf moon tonight! And so so cold🥶❄️🌕
#sundaymusings When I was in London last week on my way to see clients @brighterspacesuk I was struck by 2 people on the tube that others just walked past seemingly unaware of their presence. The first was a man with his head in his hands, yes it could have been a hangover but the look in his eyes when I stopped and asked if he was ok said it all. ‘Thank you for seeing me and caring enough to stop’. Further on an old lady was struggling up the stairs unable to breathe properly. I offered her my arm which she politely declined and said she would be ok taking her time. Her eyes also said thank you for thinking of me. It impacted me deeply. Our lives speak every day. What does yours say to others? #caringforothers#selflessness#peoplematter#takethetime#bekindtoothers#lookupfromyourphone#helpothers#thoughtfulness
Taking the time to teach my daughter how to go gutless!! We could have pulled a truck up to this location, but to show her how to field dress and build your pack for a pack out is very important!
It’s taken me many years to perfect these methods for me, so if I can help her flatten the curve then I’ve done good!

Throwback to when we were in Venice not too long ago! There's nothing like traveling!❤❤❤
