I have to share something with you this week that was a powerful tool in helping me snap out of overwhelm and freak-out on my fertility journey.

Let me be the first to admit that had someone shared this with me, when I was knee deep in the roller coaster, I can guarantee I would have responded with the most epically, sarcastic, eye-roll in recorded history.

As a lovably Type A, linear thinking, fact and evidence driven, professional woman, with perfectionist tendencies, I had prided myself in being able to "reason" my way through most things.

Sometimes it worked!

However, when overwhelm and freak-out show up with their A-game, good old logic and reason sometimes fall painfully short.

When that happens, it requires us to take a different approach.

So what does a smart woman do when spending another moment thinking, just isn't going to do the trick?

In the words of my mentor, you've got to: "Get out of your head, and into your body." (Yes, I have a mentor. Smart women, who are serious about up-leveling and creating their very best lives do!)

And the best way I know to do that?

Dance.

You read that right.

The reason for this is two fold:

  1. When you move your body to music that makes you feel great, you raise your vibration and set yourself up for releasing all of those feel-good chemicals in your body that provide the delicious boost we feel after even light exercise.
  2. Dance requires at least a minimal level of coordination and balance! That means you immediately ground yourself in the present moment, or you risk falling on your ass!

Overwhelm and freak-out thrive in your thoughts about the past and future. Dance can keep you out of both.

Giving yourself a few minutes to shake your booty to a sick beat of your choosing can be like pressing a giant reset button in those moments when you need it most.

Get out of your head and into your body. (Say this 3 times out loud!)

I am sharing this with you because it WORKS...and it is fun.

This is journey-tested gold.

Cut a rug, do the robot, dust off your "Elaine" moves...you will be glad you did.

Want my help? I'm here.

Lots of love,

Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...

1) Make your "Out Of Overwhelm & Freak-Out" playlist.

2) Dance your ass off.

3) Repeat as needed.

I get that you may feel silly at first or that this might sound like a giant dose of feminine woo-hooery, but you've got a choice--you can keep doing what you've always done and get the same results, or you can try something new!

Interrupt the pattern of letting overwhelm or freak-out win.

Stretch yourself. Remember, it's about progress, NOT perfection.
