I definitely don't have all of the answers to what's happening in the world, But I do know this: when there is upheaval or uncertainty, it's even more critical to take care of your physical vessel (aka your body) to handle stress. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your physical cells need to be taken care of now more than ever, so I wrote a new post with 20 ways to eat healthier now without dieting - it’s up on the blog (link in my profile @elizabeth_rider) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drop a ❤️ in the comments if you’re ready to take care of yourself this weekend. Try a few of the tips in that post, drink extra water, and take breaks to get outside. Take care of your body so it can take care of your mind and spirit. xo ~E
Friends, this is the email I sent to my blog list this morning. Sharing it here too in case you’re not on my email list. I encourage you to read it to the end. ~E
#blackouttuesday 🖤 Black Lives Matter (And please remember it’s VOTING DAY in some states: Indiana, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Iowa, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota and the District of Columbia.) Also, DO NOT USE the hashtags BLM or blacklivesmatter in blackouttuesday posts as it prioritizes your post in the algorithm and pushes out important posts from BIPOC leaders.
It's my birthday! 🥳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This year, I'm donating my birthday to help fight childhood hunger in America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before the current state of world affairs, 1 in 6 kids in the US faced hunger each year. Now, with the way the world has changed, 1 in 4 children in the United States could face hunger this year because of the way the coronavirus has impacted our economy. I find this unacceptable—my eyes well up with tears just typing this. These kids need our help now more than ever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have room to give, please consider joining me in this fundraiser. Your tax-deductible donation goes straight to the organization to help on the front lines of childhood hunger. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whether you donate $10 or $100, any amount makes a positive impact on kids in communities across the US. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Every $1 you donate can help feed a child 10 meals! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (And for my friends outside the US, we see you, too. Please consider donating to organizations in your country.) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you for joining in on my birthday celebration and continuing to support this organization close to my heart. (Link is in my profile @elizabeth_rider) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m grateful for another trip around the sun this year Thank you for being part of this awesome online community! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ xo, Elizabeth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ photo by @nikkiclosser; makeup by @kendra.lspringer
Which one is most true??? Even as someone who’s always worked from home, for me it’s still sweatpants and car 🚗 Tell me yours with an emoji 👇🏻
When your entire world changes on a dime without your consent, the most important thing you can remember is that the point of power is always in the present moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This has happened to the entire world in the last few months, but, quite frankly, it’s been happening since the dawn of time. An unexpected end to a job or relationship. Divorce. Death. Accidents. Infidelity. Time or money invested in a project that isn’t taking off. It goes on and on. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s ok to take time and rest when there’s upheaval. When you’re ready (and please, get ready), you have to remember that your power always lies in the present moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People spend WAY TOO MUCH time in the past, spinning on: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - why did this person cheat - why did I lose this job - why did this have to happen to me - but I spent money on this one thing so I have to keep doing it - but I spent time on this so I have to stick with it - why, why, why, but, but, but ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This came up over the past week when I was coaching students in my new blogging class who were asking about blog design. What I realized was that too many of them were sticking with outdated themes/design because they had invested a little time and money into something a few years ago. I realized everyone needed a tough love moment of realizing that successful people make decisions based on the current moment and making the future better, not the sunk costs of something they have spent time and money on that isn’t working. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honey, if it’s not wildly successful, it doesn’t matter that you’ve spent time and money on it. Make decisions based on NOW and how you can make the future better. If that means getting a new blog theme, then drop everything and do that now. This applies to just about everything in life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Your point of power can only exist in the current moment. What can you do NOW to make the future BETTER? It’s not that the past isn’t important. We can learn from the past. But we can’t live there, and we shouldn’t be making future decisions based on past sunk costs. You can create your future if you’re willing to take control of your power in the present moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cont in comments...

☝🏻 One of the most true things I’ve read all month 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who else’s suitcase is always 51.5lbs?!
