What is Mindfulness and How can I start a practice?

What is Mindfulness and How can I start a practice?



Starting a mindfulness practice doesn’t have to be mystical or elusive.


Do you want to be more intentional and less reactive?


I used to think I needed to find time to sit on my mat and meditate so I felt defeated without even trying. The perfectionist in me told myself that I would never be the mindful, calm mom that I wanted to be.


Watch my short video about What mindfulness is. https://youtu.be/46PyhP0KIRw


I had no idea how to model good habits of intention and joy for my kids.


Well, I’ve done all of the hard work of finding a daily mindfulness practice and it’s not on a mat!  It’s super easy for you to follow and begin a new journey towards more joy.


I have a FREE 90 day Challenge and it only takes a few minutes a day!  Jump in my Facebook group.  It’s there to repeat anytime you want too!


I'll take you on a journey to rediscover yourself and what brings joy.  We notice thought patterns and become aware of our body in a new way.  We'll smile more, laugh more, stay calm when necessary, and identify triggers together.

Oh, and the group is full of supportive women that will lift you up farther than you thought possible!!


Hi! My name is Tanya and I'm a sugar addict.

Hi! My name is Tanya and I'm a sugar addict.
This is in no way supposed to be funny.  I really am serious.  Sugar is a drug and sugar is addictive.

Just read this for more information about how sugar acts in the body.

I remember as a kid eating sugar out f the sugar bowl as a kid.  Instant boost!

Now, as an adult, I've realized that I'm a binge eater and also I have bad withdrawals.  When my blood sugar drops, I get angry!  I've seen this in my daughter as well.

So, with other addictions you cannot have any of said substance or you'll go back to dependency. I've found this to be true for me.  If I have sweet treats in my house, I can't stay away from them.  Holidays are the hardest because I overeat and I can't stop.

Of course abstinence is the best option, but I want to have some treats as long as I'm being intentional.  I've found the best thing for me is to have rules.

That's why I've found Intermittent Fasting (IF) to be the best for me.  I can have a sweet treat everyday and then not overindulge.  I'm not spiking my blood sugar all day long and some days I don't even crave anything anymore.  I don't usually eat before 11 am so it works well for me to have a late afternoon treat or a dessert.

On days that are special or a day that I fall off the bandwagon, I don't blame, shame, or have guilt anymore.  Eating should not be linked to stress because that leads to horrible changes in the body as far as energy and hormones.  This can further lead to weight gain and inflammation.

That's why my course doesn't restrict all sugar.  Restrictive diets leave us feeling shame and guilt and we often just fall back to old habits.  We need to reduce the cravings and enjoy sweets and carbs in moderation. Our thought patterns around food need to be positive and I include daily affirmations to reinforce this.  My course will have you developing new patterns and new food choices so that it becomes a lifestyle not a diet!  One of my favorite affirmations from the course is "I can make mistakes and be OK."

 Read this for more on the psychology. 

Want a detox course that you can do anytime you want?  

It's designed to be done several times throughout the year so you can make incremental changes and build new habits.  I also have a FB group to help with accountability.  It's super affordable because everyone needs this course sometime!

Elevate--28 Days to illuminate your Life's Purpose!


Are you exhausted, stressed, and overwhelmed and have no idea how to get back on track?

Are you ready to step out of the storm and thrive, but you just don't know where to start?

2 years ago, I was grieving the loss of my parents.  I had lost the spark and fire for teaching that I always prided myself in.  I was so focused on my kids' and husband's needs that my light was dimming.  Something had to change so I started making myself a priority again.   
I knew I was close to complete burn out and breakdown.  
So, I quit my job and took my 3 year old out of daycare so we could spend more time together.  I started dreaming again.  I started putting hopes into tangible goals and taking baby steps towards meeting them.
Today, I can honestly say that I am so passionate about what I am doing.  I truly feel like I've lit the fire again and purpose is streaming through me.  I've found some simple strategies and routines to keep me on track.
