How to ease anxiety

February 5, 2022

Mia The Diva

Hey Divas,

Up with anxiety having a hard time going to sleep this week. I had been under some stress after losing another one of my Uncles and couldn’t quite shake the jitters trying to fall asleep. Every time l think l’ve got this grief thing down. I’m painfully wrong.

Ultimately it is life and something we all must go through but it really really sucks and l wish l had a better way to put it but l don’t.

It didn’t help l had a glass of wine before bedtime. I learned that it can trigger jitters along with caffeine. Not a good look for a diva!

I went to bed well tried to.

I tossed and turned broke into a sweat. I never sweat heavily so l knew something was up. I was able to watch to two full feature films and not fall asleep. The movies triggered my anxiety so I decided since l couldn’t sleep to put this extra energy to use.

I stepped out on my patio. I’m glad it’s still cold out nice crisp after midnight chill. I held my cat then decided to make a cup of tea. I dimmed my lights. It’s helping as l’m writing l’m starting to calm down.

Sleepy time Tea

There really are no ways to get out of the horrible feeling of anxiety and panic attacks. It’s just something we have to go through understand it’s not forever but extremely uncomfortable. I was reading about how exercise actually calms the body. Incentive to start walking. I really need to get moving anyway.

I think about what l’m anxious about and honestly it’s a lot of things. The best way l’ve learned to tackle these issues is to focus on the right now to have faith that everything works out one way or another and the focus on the things l am in control of like what l eat and moving my body.

I focus on my goals and the things that l want to accomplish this year. Taking on the little things this week like starting my day with intention. Keeping up with my daily rituals and making adjustments as needed.

The Real Flex

January 31, 2022

Mia The Diva

Hi Divas!

Here we are into a New Campaign season!

So what’s the real flex on a wellness journey?

Self Awareness for sure.

I started detoxing last week drinking lemon water, celery juice and detox smoothie to start my day. l’m working on being more active on my trampoline. I have long work days, honestly do not have the time on my work days to work out but will go outside to walk on my off days. So for now l get in my jumps throughout the day and it gives me a boost.

I noticed feeling tired in spite of eating healthier. I have my energy throughout the day which is great but still my body is catching up if that makes sense. I’ve been food journaling which has been helpful to understand my habits and improvements over time.

Having an awareness gives you choices.

It’s also important to know where you’re going. Where do you see yourself one year from now? Really think about it. Think about it in every aspect of your life. We all need something to look forward to.

So for starters that we are officially in Campaign Season we will start with our goals.

Breaking down a goal can be overwhelming and a year can seem so far away even though they seem to fly by so fast at the same time.

Write down your Ultimate Goal – This is what we want to ultimately achieve. Write down what you will need to do in order to achieve that goal. Be honest with your self and what barriers can be in the way of stopping you. Then start slashing them one by one. In short make your goals your bishh .

No small goal in between is too small only as long as it is bringing you to your ultimate vision.

So we start with long term goals, what will we need to do monthly to get there, what will we need to do weekly. What will we need to do daily?

Then Reward yourself for each goal achieved in each category start learning how to pamper and treat yourself that has nothing to do with food to keep you inspired and on the course!

3 Tips to Set Yourself up for the Best Day and Best 2022!

January 19, 2022

Mia The Diva

Hi Divas!

So we just got through that nostalgic time of year and also that time when optimism is at it’s peak. So take advantage of this positive energy!

So many things can knock a diva’s day off let alone her year. So here are a few tips to get those positive vibes going and morning rituals!

1. Eat before working out Fuel Up Divas!

You’ll get more of a boost and if you are into early riser kind of workouts find an easy digestible carb that is low in fat and fiber. A banana is great to give you energy without causing tummy issues before exercising.

2. Drink Up! Cheers!

Post work out recovery go-to’s Vitamin C for muscle repair and breakfast a smoothie or bar that has a mix of carbs proteins and fiber to help repair muscles and replenish energy.

When a diva is dried out from not getting hydrated is not a good look for a diva! To stay on your game it’s best to keep hydrated throughout the day.

Standard rule of thumb is to divide half your current body weight into ounces to make sure you’re hitting those water goals! It’s a good idea to bring a 16 oz water bottle try to drink the whole thing during your 1 hour work out.

Plastic water bottles are thought to be a health risk because of the recycled plastic. Harmful chemicals are emitted from these bottles, and these chemicals might cause cancer.

By switching it up to stainless steel, you can prevent harmful carcinogens from leaching into your drinking water. So l use a stainless steel metal bottle. It’s safe and it can also keep fluids hot or cold.

3. Create good vibes & go outside!

There is a freshness and sense of freedom working out outside. Just something about crisp morning air in the colder months and the freshness of a new morning during the summer months.

Alas Let it Go dear diva!

Music! Who loves a good ole booty shake! My playlist ranges a little bit of everything Black Eyed Peas is my Go- To Yes! That 40 plus Club playlist be FiYa!! Fast high energy music has been proven to increase endurance a diva can go a little further and also adds a happy distraction 🙂

Let it all Go! Let it all OUT! It’s been a year! A tough one for a lot of us out here.

Take heart that Strong emotions are exhausting and can be draining. Physically too. I couldn’t really put my finger on why l was tired for no real reason.

Where the mind goes energy flows stressing and negativity is definitely a drain but it’s still energy. Put it to good use having a Super Fly workout or better yet clean your house! Two in one deal!

Happy New Year Divas! May your 2022 Be Your BEST & FLYEST Yet!

Be Healthy! Be Fabulous! Be You!

Stop Expecting YOU from other people

November 17, 2021

Mia The Diva

Hi Divas!

It’s a harsh reality. Too many times we expect “ us “ from others. Some people will give you their entire ass to kiss regardless of your relationship with them. Regardless of your friendship. Regardless of your family ties.

Stop expecting YOU from other people

This is a physical world and people will be people out for themselves. Givers will be givers and takers will be takers until the end of times.

The hardest lesson but the greatest lesson of my life is the importance of making myself a priority and self care. Everyone and everything took priority over me. My body and my life was a reflection of that. Not a good look for a Diva!

Self Care is how we fill up our cups. Love You some You Dear Diva!!

My cup ran empty it was not replenished. As we know we can not pour from an empty cup.

I ended up feeling emotionally drained, used, and taken advantage of most the time.

The hard reality l had to face is that a part of me allowed that behavior due to my lack of boundaries.

Boundaries. What are they? Anything that doesn’t feel good is when a boundary has been crossed.

In that moment diva has 3 choices. She can address it, take it, or move on from it.

A diva doesn’t have to make anyone’s bullshit her reality. F—that. We are here to receive what overflows from our Fabulousness. Graciously.

Failing to plan? Plan to Fail

November 8, 2021

Mia The Diva

Hey Divas,

Here l am getting back on track. The art of allowing. I’m in a space of life where l don’t have to get it all right. I’ve lived enough life to know what l like and what l don’t for the most part.

I know that l don’t like feeling tired and tapped out. I don’t like feeling drained. I don’t like feeling stressed, even though it’s healthy sometimes and a part of life. I do like how l feel after eating right and clean. I do like when l am actually on time for things. It reduces my stress and l am able to be fully present.

The sacrifice to eating clean is the prepping. It takes time and l am working on ways to perfect it to balance it in my life. If I don’t plan I go straight to what’s most convenient or miss a meal. Not a good look for a diva! lt’s all a work in progress but I take things day by day.

I’ve been chronicling my journey and got off track these past couple of weeks after losing my Uncle to cancer. I would think by now l would have this grief thing down but with every death a piece of me dies too. Every death is painful no matter how much you prepare for it. You’re never prepared when it actually happens.

My Uncle was a second Dad to me. He was the version of my Dad who broke all the rules. He lived in his truth and unapologetically.

Everything is eventual. This one hurts so bad.

I’m staying on the course and not allow grief to get me off the course. I’m in a space of life that l understand death is a reality of life as it is necessary and natural but it doesn’t take away the hurt.

I’m learning to process death while still keeping my priorities in tact by having goals but more so than that making a commitment to them because without making a commitment it just adds to the list of failures.

Set realistic goals and expectations. It’s okay—and healthy—to realize you cannot be 100% successful at everything all at once. Be mindful of the things you can control and work on accepting the things that you can’t control.

Fall down 1000 times get back up 1001.
