Hi, so nice to meet you!

 
I'm Tina, a Canadian girl on a beautiful journey creating a life I love, while inspiring others to do the same.  I am a momma to three amazing world - rockers and I'm married to one pretty fabulous, studly guy.  I'm a little bit granola, a wellness warrior, an uplifter, and I love to bust a move to 90's hip hop.  
I believe we are all meant to float, soar, rise, succeed, exceed, and live an amazing life.  We just get in our own way sometimes.  

Think of a cork bobbing in the water - that’s you living your best life.  It’s there, always, meant to float.  Now, think of the negative, limiting beliefs and heavy thoughts, demands and expectations you have…picture your hand pushing down on that cork a little more with each one.  You’re doing that.  We all do it.  But I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.  It’s not meant to be that way.
I love being a woman, a mom, a wife and so much more, but I used to be so overwhelmed by it all.  I would come home from work depleted and then want so badly to be fun and energetic for my kids and sexy for my husband, but I felt like I was out of steam.  I couldn't hear my inner voice anymore.

I just wanted balance so badly.  I knew I had to start getting my emotional and physical health under control.  I didn't know where to start or even what I really wanted.

I started to work on my stress management.  I changed my mindset and made a choice to figure out how to be the best version of myself I could be. That mean UNLEARNING decades of "beliefs". It meant shifting my perspective and harnessing my feminine energy rather than seeing it as a weakness or "being too soft".  I had to eliminate toxic triggers in my home, had to reduce inflammation in my body, balance my hormones and support my emotions.  

I now have tools to support those emotions naturally.    I no longer NEED naps.  My health is under control and wellness is my jam.  I have more clarity and energy!  I feel like myself again! Best of all, I'm connected to myself.  I truly value my intuition and have remembered how to dream.

I’m on a journey, stepping out of my comfort zone, to spread a very important message.  To light a fire in your heart to help you burn bright instead of burn out.  

I want to guide you to make every moment NEXT LEVEL.  To open you up to living - rather than existing.  I want to share with you what I’ve learned along the way to create the life you want because you can.  You can have it all.  

That dream you have?  It’s done.  

The health you desire?  It’s yours.  

The little voice inside of you telling you that there’s more…it’s right!  

If you’ll let me, I want to show you how to FLOAT YOUR CORK!

How To Choose Foundation Color

See if your skin has cool or warm tones with the tips below.
Get a cool or warm foundation to match. It's that easy!
Veins. Look at the veins on the underside of your wrist. If they have more of a blue hue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins are more green, you likely have warm undertones.
Jewelry. If you tend to look better in silver-toned jewelry, your skin may be cool. If you feel you look better in gold jewelry, you may have warm-colored skin.
Neutral Colors. If your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white or black hues, you may have cool toned skin. If you look better in ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades, you likely have a warm tone.
Eye and Hair Color. Women with cool-toned skin typically have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blonde, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet, and ash undertones. Warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blonde, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
Sun Tanning. Cool-toned skin usually burns easily in the sun. If you tan easily, you likely have warm-toned skin.

Hot Mess? I call BS.

Hot Mess? I call BS.

Unpopular opinion, perhaps, but when someone self-declares themselves as a hot mess, it makes me cringe. 
 
Yet, we see it all the time.  The hashtag “hot mess” has been used on Instagram over a million times.  
 
Declaring, or even thinking, that you are a hot mess is totally defeating.  It’s like you are putting on a brave face, by telling the world you don’t give a rip, yet you are labelling yourself which keeps you from having to reach for more or, more accurately, from wanting more.  
 
I know this “hot mess” feeling.  I know it well.  But sometimes we use trendy words without even realizing how much they play with our subconscious and keep us playing small.  
 
What does “hot mess” mean to you?  What is the woman who says this actually feeling?  Tired, wiped, barely holding on, needing a break, wishing she could feel like she’s got it all together, wanting to be energized and organized.  
 
This woman feels like there isn’t enough of her to go around, yet the Instagram photos would have her book-ending her day with “can’t function without coffee” and pouring a glass of red in the evening, talking about the crazy mom life, sporting a messy bun, and a cute oversized sweatshirt that says something witty, all while being praised for “keeping it real” and being relatable.   
 
Why is that more accepted than her saying, I’m really overwhelmed these days, but I know it will get better.  I’m doing what I can and being gentle with myself.  
 
Don't get me wrong, I like coffee and I enjoy a good glass of merlot once in a while. I get it, but we are missing the point with this surface level stuff that is actually hiding some bigger stuff.

It’s a crappy feeling to feel scattered and exhausted, but sometimes we announce it as a form of community building.  It’s like saying, hey all you other tired, overwhelmed women out there!  I’m here!  Let’s be this way together, so that it feels better.
 
But does it?  When you are down, does it feel better to be around others who are down or does it just feel more comfortable and safe?  When you are exhausted and depleted, does it feel energizing to focus on it?  Do you want to be in it longer, or do you want to move through it?
 
Let me be clear, I don’t think we always need to be pushing to be great, quite the opposite actually.  I do not believe in hustle culture whatsoever.  I believe strongly in healing and rest and honouring our feelings, but I do believe in refining ourselves and being resourceful in finding ways to feel better, to feel uplifted, to feel balanced and to feel peace.  I believe that we are meant to thrive and that life ebbs and flows.  We go through seasons of rest and hibernation, seasons of visibility and growth and seasons of abundance and flow.
 

You are not “a mess”.  You are so much more even if you are feeling like you are in amess or feeling messy, or feeling messed up…it’s not who you are.  It is an experience you are having.
 
It’s an experience we’ve all had, but it doesn’t have to be something you label yourself as, and you can choose a different experience.
 
Imagine going to a conference and women could choose either “hot mess” as their name tag or “divine being”, what do you think most would choose?
 
What would you choose? 
 
How would each of those options feel?  How would you show up differently with each of those options?  

If you are going to declare something about yourself, let it be the truth of what’s really inside.  That’s keeping it real.  That’s showing up fully for your life.  That’s being in gratitude for another day on this earth.  
 
It’s time to start raising the bar for our well-being, wouldn’t you say?
 
I’d say so.  We are meant for so much more.
 
With so much love and belief for what’s possible for you,
Tina xo
 
Ps. And if you are feeling like you have no idea how to go from a “hot mess” in survival mode, to a divine being that is thriving, you need to be in the Glow with Your Flow program. 

I show you the path to feeling good again, to understanding yourself, to having better relationships with yourself and others, to remembering the truth of who you really are, to clarity, peace and balance for you specifically.

What is Ayurveda?

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is a complete healing system that originated over 5000 years ago.  It’s becoming more and more popular, just like yoga did, but it is certainly not new.  

If we break down the word Ayurveda, Ayus means knowledge or science and veda means life.  It is literally the science or knowledge of life.  It is a complete lifestyle that is focused on giving you tools and practises to create health on a daily basis by using your innate healing ability. I think intuitively we all know that our body is designed to heal and know what to do.  So by living this wisdom and these practises, you begin to thrive physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 

There are several principles that make up the foundation of Ayurveda and more and more, modern science is validating these ancient teachings.  

Let's go through some of them here below:

It is a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to health and well-being, so it gives you tools for thriving in all aspects of your life—physical, emotional, and spiritual.  You’ve heard about the mind/body/spirit connection and yet, so often we disregard what is important.  Why do we overlook it when we know it's so valuable?

Your mind, body and spirit are inextricably connected.  What you take in through your experiences (5 senses) creates thoughts, feelings, nourishment, toxins, that affect your body and your mind.  If you have a lot of toxic thoughts, your body won’t run optimally.  

Think about a time where you were in the presence of an intense argument, how did it feel in your body?  Was there tension, sweating, tears?  Or the opposite situation.  Imagine you’ve just been invited to an epic event or trip of your dreams, your friends are on their way to pick you up RIGHT NOW.  What does your body feel like?  Excited, energetic, you pick up the physical pace, perhaps you are smiling.  Now let’s bring it to the body first, you eat garbage food, your mind can't focus or get clear, you feel heavy physically, but also unmotivated, tired.    If you focus on only one aspect and expect to thrive, you may find yourself struggling. Research is confirming that when you address all these aspects of your life, you maximise your well-being. 

Secondly, it addresses all aspects of the person, not just a “problem area” it focuses on the root cause of the issue and teaches you how to reverse the disease process to heal what started it all rather than put a temporary, symptom-specific short-term solution on it.

It’s also preventative, so when you live an ayurvedic lifestyle, you are less likely to build up toxins (ama) and have tools to relieve stress, so that diseases are less likely to ever become present.

It’s important to understand that just because Ayurveda originated over 5000 years ago, it doesn’t mean its outdated.  It’s quite the opposite, because it’s based on the principles of nature which never change.

Ayurveda teaches that the five elements that make up the universe, fire, air, earth, space and water, are also within you, so when you align your daily habits with the rhythms of nature and your natural cycles, you eat colourful, nourishing foods, you have awareness of what you take in through your five senses, you sleep (heal) well and you connect to the deeper part of you, your body comes back into balance.  Not only that, but you can then reach your full potential to have fulfilment, joy and peace in your life.

Ayurveda is personalised, and this is my favourite part.  There is no one-size-fits-all approach to this healing wisdom.  Thank goodness!  We are so different and what is beneficial for one person, isn't necessarily what the other needs.

Remember those five elements that I said are within you? Those 5 elements are responsible for different aspects of your wellbeing and we all have them all within us, yes, but to varying degrees.  We each have a unique mind/body type, made up of those elements, which in Ayurveda we call Doshas.  There are three Doshas, Vata, Pitta and Kapha.

Vata is made up of space and air and is responsible for movement and transportation within the body. It is the principle behind all movement and the force that generates thought.

Pitta is made up of fire and water and Pitta is the principle of transformation. It represents energy, heat, or fire.

Kapha is made up of earth and water and is responsible for protection and structural integrity. It is the principle that holds the cells together and forms the muscle, fat, bone.

In Ayurveda, you learn about your mind-body type, our dosha, you recognize what being in balance or out of balance looks like for you specifically and we learn the tools to bring yourself back to balance. Not to even levels of all three doshas, but to the level of YOUR essential nature.

You know this to be valuable, because what works for your partner in their physical routine, might leave you depleted.  The foods that your friend has been eating, leave you feeling bloated even though they are “healthy” options.  You know you need more or less sleep than someone.  If you have kids, you can tell that some need naps and others don’t.  So you build awareness of what feels good for you.

Lastly, it’s very practical.  When you start to line up your daily life with the rhythms of nature, the circadian rhythms, the lunar rhythms, the seasonal rhythms, etc. you will see that you’ve naturally and intuitively been practising certain aspects of Ayurveda throughout your life.  You do simple, daily maintenance practises such as scraping your tongue, drinking warm water and walking to stoke your digestive fire.  You connect and create peace, by meditating, walking in nature, or breathing deeply.  You restore your mind and body through proper sleep, self-massage, essential oils, healing yoga., you release toxins through emotional release techniques, seasonal resets, switching out toxic self-care or household products.

It is a holistic, peaceful and joyful way to live that is available for anyone.  You get to decide what elements of Ayurveda you can incorporate in your life.  Just start small and add one bit at a time.  The benefits will be felt quickly and I'll bet the people around you will begin to ask themselves, "what's different about her...she's glowing".
