Instagram photos and videos

Let’s put this #momguilt and shams to rest. Let’s stop the #breastisbest BS once and for all. It’s not cool and we should all stop. 👏🏽 I’ve been wanting to share this for SO long now and honestly it feels like it’s time. I shared just a tiny piece of advice on my stories and i’ve received so many messages from fellow mamas sharing their own experience with this.
I set VERY high expectations before Ivana was even born. I would exclusively breastfeed her and formula was the enemy. Formula was failure as a mother. 🤱🏽🙅🏽‍♀️ She latched and it was all good, but my supply wasnt enough. Her weight kept dropping and between the hormonal rollercoaster and trying to survive this new thing called #4thtrimester I found myself feeling like a FAILED as a mother. The negative dialogue in my head was very sad tbh. 😣
We went to her 1 week checkup and the doctor adviced us to try formula and Ivana chugged that thing.. she was HUNGRY and i felt a huge wave of relief and also sadness (again, feeling so ashamed of not being able to feed my baby and so guilty realizing she was hungry) 🍼

I didn’t share on instagram, i didn’t talk about it much - WHY?! Cuz i was feeling so much guilt and felt so much pressure from people i dont even know and all the darn # like #breastisbest 😂

Guess what? I was the only one (of 3) who was exclusively breastfed for almost 2 years and I am THE ONLY ONE who was constantly sick and who is extremely sensitive and allergic to things😳😂 my two brothers are professionals soccer players and they never get sick (thank God) and there’s nothing wrong with them! 😍🙏🏽 Somewhere along the way we forgot how difficult becoming a mom is.. we’re ALL learning and doing the best we can - the last thing we need is to feel shamed by OTHER MOMS.
Stop saying things like: i’d never give formula to my baby. ✖️ i’m againts formula ✖️ And no, this does NOT mean i’m against breastfeeding hahaha i would have LOVED to exclusively breastfeed Ivana. the boob solves everything, is free, and has everything they need :) 🙏🏽😜 i think i speak for the majority of mamas when i say that we wish we could have, but for some reason we couldn’t - and THATS OKAY! 💖💕🙏🏽

“ Sometimes, we have to use all of our willpower toward a push for good, a push for something better. .
All of our energy
All of you must want it
.
It’s going to be hard, a lot harder than you’d want it to be. But you must, and you will, and it is always enough once reached.
.
If you aren’t there, or find yourself failing, you aren’t using all of you. You will know when you are. You will feel it through your veins, across all bones, and with your whole soul .
And then and only then, will you breakthrough into the light once impossible to attain with only a part of ourselves. “ - Mirtica Mindfulness

All relationships are a mirror reflecting back to us and informing us of where we are and aren’t being true to ourselves. Milk them for all their worth. ❤️💫❤️💫❤️

Seeing the good everyday is a simple but very powerful way to feel happier and more confident. Slow down a little - open your eyes and spend a few minutes thinking about the good qualities. Try to see the good intentions in the people around you and recognise that the things you do, really do count. ✨ #quotes #quotestoliveby #quotesaboutlife #lifestyle #positivevibes #positivequotes #positivethinking #mindfulness #healthierme #behappy #adventure #explore #loveyourself #empower #bossbabe #girlboss

In Honor National Relaxation Day, I'm sharing some of my favorite tried and true + super easy ways to relax when your stress is high & patience is low. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Stare at the flame of a candle while focusing on deep breaths. This helps you fall asleep faster.

3. Slowly stretch your body, patting attention to muscles warming and loosening up as you move & release each limb.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4.Vacuum your carpet. The steady hum and repetitive motion helps calm your body and you're visually seeing dirt be removed away which clears the mind.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Will you try any of these techniques? How do you usualy relax?

With summer in full swing, there is nothing more refreshing than having some cold watermelon! 🍉
--
Watermelon is 90% water 💧 and is a great way to keep you hydrated during the summer! It is a low calorie fruit and is packed with nutrients and antioxidants to help fight off cell damage. ❌
--
Watermelon contains high amounts of vitamin C (an antioxidant), carotenoids (plant compounds which our body converts into vitamin A), lycopene (a specific type of carotenoid which gives watermelon it's bright colour 🌟), citrulline (an antioxidant and non-essential amino acid that is converted to another amino acid called arginine which is beneficial for cell division, wound healing, and removal of ammonia from the body), and cucurbitacin E (a plant compound that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects).
--
I decided to reap the full benefits of watermelon by simply having it cut up into chunks. Adding fresh mint leaves on top is another great way to combine flavours! 🍃
--
P.S. I must confess that it took me longer to take this photo than it did for me to eat it 🙊 hehe!
--
Comment below and tell me how you like to enjoy your watermelon! 👇🏼

I’m outside of myself with excitement for this adventure!! Less than 24hrs away from embarking on such an enlightening/positive experience created/hosted by some of my most wonderful friends. .
I’ve been blessed to be invited along and to share some of my skills as a massage therapist for the group with the intention of helping to keep everyone relaxed/refreshed/ and feeling their best! .
I’m really excited to announce that as a part of my treatment plan I’ll be utilizing the latest and greatest in physician calibrated, percussive therapy...also known as the Theragun G2Pro! .
I believe it will be a great tool to provide highly efficient/effective relief to all within a fraction of a normal therapy session allowing my service to be the most beneficial while also saving precious time for us to embrace/explore this beautiful new place. Well, new to me at least!! 😁🇨🇺💫✌️
.
Who knows...maybe there’ll be some more vegan/plant based outdoor adventure retreats in the near future too! .
Adios, Amigos/Amigas!! .

Whooping it up.
Trying out Whoop the last week.
Think fitness tracker with built in coach.
Biggest difference is how it doesn’t just collect lots of data but analyzes it and makes it actionable.
Looks at 3 pillars: Strain, Recovery, and sleep.
Fitting I started tracking sleep after we had a baby (depressing but I still get lots of sleep compared to my poor wife.
.
Things I like:
- tracks HRV
- Proactive analysis
- Waterproof
- Charge it without taking it off
- Monthly subscription (vs hardware purchase)
- Charges without having to take it off
.
Things I don’t like:
- strap gets loose
- Not cheap ($30p/mth)
.

Thanks @whoop .

It all begins in your mind. What you give power to has power over you. If you allow it. ✨✨ Thanks for this quote this morning @milochieyoga ✨✨ see all you Detroit peeps on the Beaubien roof this evening at 5:30pm

Lately I have been waking up early in the morning going over and over things in my head. Analyzing situations that have happened and going through a to do list for the future. So much energy and stress surrounded by everything but the present moment. I was listening to a meditation talking about how if you feel energy coming out of your hands and feel the hands get heavy, this sensation can ground you down into the moment. This has helped, but does anyone else have any tips for early morning over thinking? .
Seemed appropriate to join the yogis for #AntidoteYoga Day 1
#HipOpener 🙏

✨ I went to Skamania County, Washington this past weekend for the Celebrate Your Life 4 day conference and listened to some of the most amazing world renowned speakers/authors share their passion, wisdom and lifes work in spirituality and healing. Not only did I learn a lot, I met some amazing people!
.
For those that know me and heard me talk about what I do, Bio-Energy Healing... I always end up working on the person I'm talking to! Because seemingly enough they usually have a physical or emotional pain they are dealing with and want to experience a session. So in between our breaks at the conference we worked on a few people out on the grass. Quick 10-15 minute sessions. The instant feedback was amazing but why I continue to love what I do are emails like this! ❤️ Shifting physical lower back pain and emotional heartache to feeling great with no pain is always a win! This stuff works! I wouldn't be doing this if it didn't and I definitely can't make this stuff up! It's all in the results and I am more and more passionate to be at service to others.

Are you ready to heal?

Como esta a tua alimentação? Você provavelmente sabe que o que você come tem um efeito não so no seu corpo mas na sua mente. Ser mindful ou ter consciência plena durante a tua alimentação tem mostrado vários benefícios. A Alimentação Consciente incorpora o mindfulness para nos libertar das críticas e julgamentos que surgem com emoções, pensamentos e sensações físicas ligados ao comer ou a comida. É uma forma de cuidarmos mais de nós e de estar no presente quando nos alimentamos. #mindfuleating #mindfulness #alimentação #conciencia #bemestar #autoconhecimente #saude

Once I understood this my values changed. If it doesn’t make money or add value I can most likely do without it. 🙇🏽‍♀️💭

MindSoulful Minute™: Do You Want a New Life? Make a New Choice!
.
Psssttt… let me tell you a secret.
.
Here’s the best news!
.
A new life is just around the corner.
.
It all comes down to us making new choices.
.
The life you have right now and are living this current moment - YOU created it with all the choices you made until now.
.
You have the power to create a new life by making new choices in this moment, and the next, and the next.
.
And then….Keep going!
.
Pretty soon, YOU will wake up to a brand new life.
.
The one you dreamed of, set intentions for, and then took new, aligned choices to create.
.
Check out today's chat for more! I’d love to hear about the new life that you’d like to create. (Full video on IGTV, Facebook.com/thebrookesidney , and a YouTube.)
.

In presence and gratitude,
Brooke-Sidney
.
.
p.s. Do you have a story inside that you need help processing or developing? Is there a story inside that needs healing? Or do you have a story that’s longing to be a gift to the world in the form of a book? 📚
No matter what form - processing our stories or writing our stories - I’m here to help with 1:1 personal coaching or author coaching. We create our lives and build a legacy with our stories. DM for pricing and more information. I’m here when you’re ready!💕

“Self-care is a priority and necessity - not a luxury - in the work that we do”
.
This is one of the shifts that I think needs to be made, particularly in how the individuals and employers in the helping professions view self-care. It’s not something that should be done or encouraged only once in a while. It’s not a check box to tick. It’s not something to be hastily reminded of. It’s something that needs to be far better integrated into our own personal frameworks and workplace policies. The bottom line is that it is a NECESSITY to be able to do the difficult work we do.
.
Do you agree?
