Hey Gorgeous, Skip the Rules!

Want to move into the gorgeous life and have a little raw kale, butterflies fluttering on your head kind of fun? Of course you do!

Each Sunday I will be posting a new Hey Gorgeous tip that is simple and fun. I am a believer that what we put out we attract and I am looking for some simple and some fun. I want my tribe to feel sexy and gorgeous and inspired. I want you to pay-it-forward when you feel inspired by a tid-bit and create the ripple that the joy of loving yourself up, healthy style brings. Yes, that means we might have to share this with the guys (*wink* at the guys who are here already)!

Got the chatter? It's the beauty of being these incredible humans on the planet but it also can make us do the crazy dance, the mind chatter. The meditation moments that lead to frustration because our little chatter won't stop, not even to take a cleansing breath.

Here is the truth of this eat your greens - move your body - do what you love - hydrate - think beautiful thoughts life: you don't have any rules. Stop looking for them and tear them up when you find some. They don't apply to you. The only thing that applies to you, right now, is what feels beautiful and allows your life to open up just a bit more.

Want to meditate? Yes, yes, yes...

Want to quiet your mind? Um, of course...

Give up if you can't? Well, ah, kind of...

If you have 5 minutes, you have an opening to start a meditation practice. That is far too much pressure gorgeous, let's call it 5 minute stillness. There are no rules, just you and stillness. Maybe it involves a mediation pillow or candles. It may have some special stones on a shelf, but really, it is you and stillness. It is your breath taking you to the place your soul needs moments of in each day.

No rules, you can count, you can use a guided meditation, you can repeat a beautiful phrase such as Satnam (Sat on the inhale, Nam on the exhale) you can lie down or you can sit up. Don't let "rules" be an excuse for skipping out on this gorg-ifying step.

5 minutes of stillness, that's your gorgeous life.
