What is Getting Your Groove Back?
The key stressors of life can obscure your inner light, zap your passion for living and erode your self-belief.
Research also demonstrates that beliefs steeped in stereotypes erode our working memory, confidence and impact. When we're liberated from these beliefs, nevertheless, and elevate our consciousness around age, gender, race, and the like, it shifts this low vibrational energy and gives way to a younger, happier, brighter and more creative you.
How I got my groove back.
At age fifty I went through a major slump, put on loads of weight and was diagnosed with arthritis. I started physio but found my energy slumping even further in the treatment centre. Fiercely independent, I just didn't want to wither away like this.
As a mindset coach, I knew this meant forming new habits and so I began running and walking every day in the rain and snow amongst nature for thirty consecutive days and vlogging it. I also tapped into my inner creative, became a spoken word poet, and created and designed a range of aromatherapy candles, Not at any point did I think I was too old to make a change. That was three years ago and I have never felt or looked better.
What has stolen your groove
We all live with the knowledge that there are certain rules we have to follow when it comes to being a woman and increasingly a man. While imagery, the media and now AI perpetuate only one type of stereotypical person however, the overall impact of stereotype threat is widespread. It quietly prevents people from being their happy, creative, authentic self as well as stifles individuality, innovation, and self-expression. Getting your groove back is the letting go of the script of who you have been until this moment and the template wired into your consciousness from the day you were born. It is a holistic approach designed to relinquish ingrained beliefs around age, gender roles and more. It begs you to break the rules that are unconsciously eroding your self-confidence, creativity, energy and how you look and feel, and to replace them with better ones.
