Why do we procrastinate? This quote is from a scene in the Mary Poppins Returns movie. There was a character who had create all kinds of self-sabotage stories surrounding her gift taking us back to her birth. Listening we could hear that most of those stories were not her own but over time she had integrated them into her life experiences and she solidified them as evidence. Why do we do that? It is mostly subconscious as all of those experiences are happening before we even get what’s happening 😂🤷🏽♀️Today let’s listen to what we are telling ourselves and Sweet Talk ourselves into the truth...our truth. That character gained a new perspective and realized she could tap into her gift anytime she desired. 💃🏿

If it’s all important, then nothing is important.
When we are at our busiest it simply feels like we are firefighting. EVERYTHING seems urgent and important and you can never seem to move fast enough.
BUT what if you could catch a breath, take a step back and get a bird’s eye view of things? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my latest YouTube video, I show you how to do just that!

In quietness and trust shall be your strength.
Joy, a consistent strength and stay amidst the chaos.
Having a confidence founded in the mystery and unshakable truth #narrativeofjoy
How to pull together a CLUTTER-FREE EASTER BASKET.
🐰 Don’t buy a basket 🧺! Repurpose one you already own. These were from my classroom and will return to holding school supplies when Easter is over.
🐰 Add something to read 📖. I like to add to our Easter book collection that can be stored away and brought out fresh each spring.
🐰 Add something they need 🧦. I know, socks didn’t become the greatest gift ever until I was in my thirties, but at least a new item of clothing or something else your kids need won’t clutter up your house.
🐰Add a couple of small toys that already fit in with the categories of toys in your home 🚚. This way everything in your Easter basket already has a place to be put away.
🐰 Finally, some candy 🍭 will guarantee a smile on your child’s face despite the socks. Plus, it can disappear before the day is through.
We spend our entire lives believing what we think we see with our eyes.
Everyone walks around screaming, "Open up your eyes!!" I think sight is highly overrated 🚫👁 Vision😇 on the other hand...🤚 A vision you see with your eyes closed and that is because the source of vision comes from within.

Monday mornings bring you down? Honestly, I’ve never been a fan myself. 😴 😉
Next week, try this... Carve out 15-20 mins on Sunday to organize your week. It doesn’t matter if you use your phone, a daily planner or a simple piece of paper. Whatever works for you!
In your plan include work (minus breaks), school, activities, appointments, etc. Next, find the empty spaces. These are where you need to squeeze in some time for yourself! A walk on the beach, lunch with friends, 30 minutes to just chill and do nothing. Whatever makes you happy! Finally, and the MOST important part is to review the plan daily and make sure you check those “fun” tasks off!
Having even small things to look forward to can change your whole perspective on the week!
Being organized isn’t just about minimizing stress by removing things, but rather distractions in general. What activities would you include on your plan to calm the chaos?

Day three here we gooo! @myfashionbreak

One of our weekend rituals to create more calm in our lives (and also helps us eat healthier and save money): meal planning over coffee. My husband and I talk through the week, note who’s got what going on what days, and then come up with meals that will make the week smoother. Then one (usually him) or both us go grocery shopping so we have everything we need in the house, decreasing chances of the need for mid-week store runs.

Connection is absolutely key in transforming challenging behaviors into superpowers.
But “connection” can feel heavy in a busy world.
Connection can feel impossible with a huge age gap.
Connection can seem unreasonable when everything else seems to be pulling our kids attention.
However ... I challenge you to fight those thought monsters.
Connection can be simple.
Connection can be a roll of tape and paper.
Connection can be abstract.
More than anything... the time you slow down to create connection points for your child... can be life changing during their challenging moments.
How are you connecting today? #itstartswithconnection #calmthechaos #ctcwin #siblings #parenting
Amongst all the chaos, bloom and show your colors to the world. You just might be able to make a dull situation brighter.
So standout amongst the crowd, be an individual, be you, and share your beauty inside and out with others.
Slow the flow
Things are continually entering our homes - papers, toys, clothes, groceries, craft supplies, home maintenance supplies… Life is busy and we don’t always take time to remove items we no longer want or need. If this step doesn’t happen, you will eventually be living in a cluttered situation.
One step to improve this is to slow the flow of stuff into your house. Focus on the areas that you have control over like toys, clothes, junk mail. Be intentional in your purchases. Make a rule to wait a certain # of hours/days before purchasing something that’s not a necessity. Be honest with yourself about what is actually a necessity.
Add this step to going through and decluttering the excess you have in your home will give your home and you room to breathe.
Need help with this process? I’m only a phone call (336-543-5643) or an email away (firstname.lastname@example.org
). I’d love to be your guide on your organizing journey.

Coachella day one, get ready for some content creation yalll. 🙌🏼💦💫
The picture of the front of my book is an accurate representation of how I used to feel 99% of the time: stressed out, overwhelmed, exhausted... over it.
For years, I struggled with people-pleasing, overcommitting, and running myself to the point of breakdown.
I made excuses, blaming and justifying this way of life, until one summer day God and I had a heart to heart talk while I was out for a run. My life has not been the same ever since.
I say “no” daily. I keep time blocked out for myself and don’t feel guilty doing so. I take naps. I pay attention to what my body is trying to tell me. I allow my feelings to report to me instead of rule me. I have a sabbath rhythm that works for my life in this season.
The result of these changes are a much happier, more relaxed, more patient, healthier and more stable Manda.
I could go on and on about how the art of creating space has changed my life, or I could just walk you through the journey I’ve been on at one of my in-person workshops this May.
If any of this resonated with you, make the investment.

Peaceful kids! Helping kids pause breathe, and experience peace in their body brings me so much joy! 😃 At Namaste Peaceful, we teach children to identify big emotions, how to process the emotions from a place of peace, and help them release stress and anxiety. Our students leave feeling more positive, with more self esteem, with an inner calm, with more flexibility and mobility to perform better in sports and activities, and have a sense greater connection to their inner truth! We have so much fun and we’re building such a great community. We know that kids are more stressed, anxious, and distracted than ever before. Visit our website at namastepeaceful.com for more info or register you beautiful babe for a class or private session! #namaste_peaceful

I can’t possibly be the only one who is lured into buying a new bathing suit every time I wander through Target, right?? And boy do all of those XL bikini bottoms and XS bikini tops accumulate 🍐 😂! On this 5th and final day of our spring closet clean out SWIMSUITS and COVER UPS are on the chopping block 👙. Which styles give you (the you you are today, not the one you were 10 years ago or the one you might be in 5!) the most confidence? The others can go👋. I love keeping my swimsuits and cover ups in this large basket, so they can be out of the way on a high shelf in the colder months and brought down lower during the warmer ones.
Wedding season and summer soirées are just around the corner, so on this 4th day of our spring closet clean out, it’s time to sift through your DRESSES and other fancier options and keep only those that make you want to party! 👗💃 Swapping to matching hangers and labeling these closet rod dividers is a great way to keep your hanging clothes organized, so you can always find just what your 💜 desires.
Our May Workshop has been announced and it's a powerful one! A group of powerful women who will be presenting, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it!

✨Adrenal Health and tools to avoid adrenal fatigue (will chat on that later) .

Looking forward to opening for Andrew this weekend in New York !
When I met Andrew last year, I had just given my first speech at a conference and wanted to uplevel my momentum. In other words, I wanted to go from being good to being world class.
Does that sound like where you are now?
Join me this weekend in New York
Maybe if we spend day 3 of our spring closet clean out packing away our favorite bulky SWEATERS in these @thecontainerstore
sweater bags the weather will finally warm up 🤞. Read some of my other “Smart Tips for Off-Season Storage” in this month’s issue of Real Simple Magazine! Still pinching myself seeing my name there🤩!
