Women’s History Month Virtues

It’s Women’s History Month! With all that’s going on in the world, I think now it is more important than ever to focus on the essence of who we are – powerful beings. All month, I will highlight one virtue each day that I want you to exercise. Will it be easy? Maybe, maybe not. But it will be worth it! Share a personal story below about how you relied on faith to turn the impossible to possible!

FAITH

 

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
 My faith journey really started when I was in college. I was heavily involved in track & field, but as you know, with sports comes injuries. I remember going to the Hospital and the Doctor telling me that the season would be over for me. So to cope with my initial stress, I took a Yoga class and it changed my whole perspective on life. I had faith that I could share this wonderful practice and make a career out of it — and I did!
Three Ways To Practice Having Faith
1. Zoom Out: Don’t focus on what’s directly in front of you.
2. Speak it into existence: Whatever IT is for you. Speak as if it’s already done.
3. Be a Trailblazer: Don’t see or have an example (in your life) of what you want? Be the exception! Blaze your own trail.

Giving Yourself a Break + Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Koya’s Tweetable Health Tip:
“Overworking yourself can be worse for you. Give yourself time to yourself! #KoyaWebb #GetLovedUp”

Sometimes you need to give yourself a break when you’ve had a lot of life change.” –Barbara Freethy

You ever have those days where things keep on piling up? When you finish one thing and end up having 20 other things to do? Time never seems to be too short or too long. Give yourself a break, you deserve it.

Working all the time can easily cause you to be extremely tired. Giving yourself a break can recharge yourself mentally and physically. Some ways to recharge yourself physically is to take a walk or indulge in a guilty pleasure. If you need to get away from all the noise and commotion, take a nap or even try to distance yourself from technology.

Enjoy a cup of tea. Take a stroll around the park. Overworking yourself can do more harm than good. With giving breaks to yourself, you will be able to finish all your tasks headstrong!
