You have started on the path to change and so far so good but here comes the very most important stage in this transformation and that is maintaining the change you wish to see. You have successfully achieved a great start but what you need to work on now is how you are going to continue meeting your goals. . 🍃 .
One of the most important things to consider in achieving this is to realise that the strategies you put in place at the start of your change will need to continue to grow and develop alongside your new lifestyle or actions. You need to continue checking in with yourself, how you feel, what you want and why you are initiating this change. . 🍃 .
As you move further down the road towards your idea of change becoming a daily way of life, you need to address how this new version of reality affects you and your emotional wellbeing. Acknowledge how this makes you feel (hopefully your change has improved elements of your life) and allow this to reinforce your beliefs and reinvigorate your motivation. By keeping your mindset focused and consistently checking in with your emotions, mental health and overall wellbeing, you will allow yourself the best opportunity for continued growth and persistent change
Golfer's elbow is a condition that causes pain where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the inside of your elbow. The pain might spread into your forearm and wrist.
Golfer's elbow is characterized by: • Pain and tenderness. Usually felt on the inner side of your elbow, the pain sometimes extends along the inner side of your forearm. Pain typically worsens with certain movements. • Stiffness. Your elbow may feel stiff, and making a fist might hurt. • Weakness. You may have weakness in your hands and wrists. • Numbness or tingling. These sensations might radiate into one or more fingers — usually the ring and little fingers.
Besides golf, many activities and occupations can lead to golfer's elbow, including:
* Racket sports. Improper technique with tennis strokes, especially the backhand, can cause injury to the tendon. Excessive use of topspin and using a racket that's too small or heavy also can lead to injury.
* Throwing sports. Improper pitching technique in baseball or softball can be another culprit. Football, archery and javelin throwing also can cause golfer's elbow.
* Weight training. Lifting weights using improper technique, such as curling the wrists during a biceps exercise, can overload the elbow muscles and tendons.
* Forceful, repetitive occupational movements. These occur in fields such as construction, plumbing and carpentry

I mess up this Mom thing a lot. I’m inpatient and distracted. I’m not always sure how to parent a situation. I take my kids’ emotions personally sometimes. Temper tantrums drive my anxiety and I feel panicked inside. •
I take solace in the fact that there is no perfect Mom or parent. Messing up is just part of the job. There is no one “right” way to do it. I can apologize and kids are incredibly forgiving. And perhaps that’s the best modeling I can do— that it’s okay to make mistakes. Its okay not to have it all together all the time. They don’t. I don’t either. We are in this together. And the love will never stop. •
Because it isn’t about being a Mom that’s better than I am right now. It’s about being a Mom that lives with her whole heart and keeps trying. To master myself. •
It’s incredibly vulnerable and scary. It’s emotionally the hardest thing I’ve done. But I have to believe I’m enough. Because the truth is I am. And so are you 💜 •
What do you tell yourself when being a part gets rough? •

M00D ☀️🌻 Yesterday my body and mind were weary. I just felt "off". It wasn't easy, but I acknowledged the messages and chose to rest. It took almost the whole day but by the time I went to bed, the fog had lifted. Glad that I can enter this day feeling more balanced. Also so grateful that I'm getting better at listening and honoring my body's messages. Crucial to also acknowledge the privilege that allows me to do so. #selflove#selfcare#mentalhealth#holistichealth#rest#TherapistLife
Something from my recent trip to Assam. This picture is the complete view from my bedroom right outside. The Bharamaputra river. One of Indias many famous rivers. I found this spot to be so very therapeutic.
Every morning I would wake up and stand on the balcony of the bedroom and watch. I would also smuggle a few extra moments of quiet when every one else was busy preparing for a family wedding.
Sometimes you can travel to certain unexpected places and find yourself drowing in its quiet. Concidering the past few months havnt been a smooth road for me. It came with lots and lots of up and downs to deal with. The pressure was definatly on the top. But this spot some how magically regenerated me. So i knew it was definatly worth a share. And for whovever loves to travel. This is a place you should visit.
Wellness Wednesday Check-in:
❤ When is the last time you said something nice to yourself?
❤ When is the last time you did something nice for yourself?
❤ When is the last time you told someone else "no" to something you didn't want for yourself?
❤ When is the last time you sat down and JUST took care of YOURSELF?
We get caught up in the busy-ness of our lives and the people around us and we forget just how important our own well-being is. So today, I challenge you to take some time for yourself. To say "no" if you want to. And to give yourself a sincere compliment.
You deserve it. ❤
Week 1/Day 3... I don’t know where you are in your journey but this was just what I needed to be hear today from my trainer & I thought one of you may too💓 “In Transformation-It takes 1 day to understand that you started,

“A head full of fears leaves no space for dreams”. —author unknown 🍃Fear. One tiny little word that can hold major power over you and the decisions you make. Have you ever missed out on an opportunity because fear got in the way? Try to make decisions from confidence, not fear. ✨Examine that self talk and try to get to the root of where that fear may be coming from.. 👌🌿 #selfawareness#confidentliving#mindbodyspirit#letgooffear#thoughtsbecomethings

This was a great workout. I maneuver through life with ups and downs I set daily goals and try to achieve each one and if I didn’t accomplish my goals for that day I put them on my goals for the next day!! I have a love/hate relationship for leg day. I do heavy lifting but I also like a good circuit. I did 10 sets of each with a 30 second break in between. Okay maybe a lil longer break....lol.
Remember “The first duty of EVERY human being is to himself. EVERY person owes himself the duty of finding how to live a full and happy life”. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If your in need of a some motivation today here you go!! #happywednesday#therapistlife#workoutmotivation#nomediocrity#builtnotbought#progressnotperfection
From our new year’s day beach walk✨ I always find good ones on my hubby’s phone. (Although my little one looks so serious here 🤷🏻♀️)
I’ve recommitted myself to going all in this year in my therapy practice (@lulusoffice) and my Rodan + Fields business because of these people right here. If you are looking for extra income, a way to support your family outside of the traditional 9-5, this could be it for you. It’s been a huge blessing for us over the past 3 years. I’d love to chat!
🚨Easy and effective guidance Alert 🚨
Today we used cones, jumbo dice, scenarios from our “Roll a Reaction” game, movement and good old fashioned teamwork to teach students about empathy, sympathy, indifference, joking, teasing and bullying.
1. Break students up into groups (I prefer 3-4) 2. Scatter scenario cards around the room.
3. Place cones around the room with definitions standing on them. (This helps if students forget the meaning of words.
4. Students take turns rolling dice and picking up the number of cards they rolled.
5. As a group, students place cards by correct cones.
6. Close out with class discussion
This took about 30 minutes and students responded so well to this activity!

I don’t know about you but whether it’s demanding schedules or workloads, if I spend a few days out of sync with my usual sleep pattern… I need a little time to adjust. . 🍃 .
So, I’m making this simple but soothing plant based bedtime drink to help drift off to sleep. It uses lavender which has a calming and relaxing effect on the mind and can induce a deep sleep. In addition, milk contains amino acid known as Tryptophan and a hormone called melatonin and together they also help to induce sleep. Coconut and Almond milk have similar qualities and can be used as a dairy free option. So why not try this hot bedtime drink to snuggle under the duvet with and encourage those Zzzzzzzzzzz! . 🍃 .
Ingredients - Makes 2 cups
2 Cups of Milk or Almond/Coconut Milk (dairy free option)
2 Teaspoons of Dried Lavender
Honey (Organic and local if possible) . 🍃 .
In a small saucepan, gently heat your milk and lavender
Stir frequently and do not let boil – medium heat
Simmer for around 15 minutes
Remove from heat and strain the lavender
Pour into cups, stir in honey (to taste) and enjoy!
I might have a different opinion tomorrow, but, today, if I had some magical fairy dust I would sprinkle it over everyone in this world and give them the power of resilience.

If you saw this and thought, laundry, 😵no thank you 😵 this exercise could be a total game-changer. Why not make laundry into a 🧘🏽♀️mindfulness meditation🧘🏽♀️? After all, anyone can benefit from a daily mindfulness practice. Your 🧠brain will thank you (as will your family members!)⠀
✅How to mindfully fold the laundry:⠀
👕Feel the warmth of the clothing fresh out of the dryer⠀
👕Notice the textures of the fabric as you hold each clothing item in your hands. ⠀
👕Notice how some fabrics feel rough, some soft and well-worn, some smooth or silky.⠀
👕Look at the colors, patterns, and details on what you’re folding. Take in the shapes of any buttons, seams, and edges.⠀
👕Inhale the scent of laundry detergent ⠀
👕Watch how your hands work, folding and stacking⠀
🙏🏽Pause for a moment to offer gratitude for this task. Your clothes keep you warm, protect you from the elements, and provide you with comfort.⠀
👉🏽Could a mindful laundry-folding practice 💫change your relationship💫 with this chore? Only one way to find out!
Day 16. Fear is a powerful survival emotion; it keeps us safe from things that threaten our lives 😟 We're innately equipped with the ability to sense danger and act 😟 This is a good thing! ❤ What is not so good is being taught to fear and having fear play an overly important role in our daily lives 😟 I spent my entire life being the biggest chicken in the world because I was taught to fear. Fear dogs, fear heights, fear boys, fear the cold, fear having an opinion, fear what people would say, fear upsetting another, fear my father, fear making a mistake. Fear life itself. 😟 My entire life was spent afraid and it fucking sucked 😖
The number one priority for me with my children (and with my clients) is to create safety; the opposite of fear ❤
Because all amazing things flow from this foundation of safety and love ❤ ❤
I was taught to fear heights. It was not something I wanted to do to my children ❤ I have made it safe for them to explore, to reach, to climb, to jump ❤
Here's my daring little boy loving life ❤ And there's me lower down diving into cold water - scared to be up where he is but miles ahead from where I have been in the past ❤ I am incredibly proud of him and mighty proud of myself ❤
#tuesdaytip: Defining your niche and setting your practice around it can change everything. Not only for your business but also for your fulfillment around the work that you do! Once I started seeing the clients that were in line with my niche everything changed. I no longer look at my schedule for the week and not want to go to the office💜
Have you joined the email list for The New Skool yet? I have several online and in person events planned for 2019! You don't want to miss out. #therapistlife

According to NAMI, an estimated 16 million American adults -- almost 7% of the population -- had a depressive episode in 2016.
Depression can look different on different people, depending on their symptom severity, environment, coping skills, and support system. A social worker practices with an open and non-judgmental attitude that meets the client where they are at, respecting their individual experience with depression symptoms. From here, a social worker can empower an individual to begin making cognitive and behavioral changes that enhance quality of life.
As clinicians, how do you typically approach working with clients experiencing depression? Comment below! 📸: @bykellymalka

✨So often, we seek whatever it is our younger selves needed and consistently come up short. I think it’s because a lot of times, that validation has to come from 👉🏽within👈🏽. We have to give ourselves the sense of being good enough, smart enough, worthy of love. ⠀
⭐️What did you need when you were younger? 💫Encouragement? 💫Comfort? 💫Validation? 💫Guidance? 💫Unconditional permission to feel and express your feelings? ⠀
How can you be that role model for your inner child going forward? ⠀
✨Wishing everyone a beautiful Saturday full of ♥️self care and ♥️rejuvenation!
