A Letter From Our Founder

 

Hello Jugglrs!

 

Happy National Women Support Women Day! 

 

I hope theJuggl has been a place of support for all of you this year with all of its incredible experts and inspiring conversations. I started theJuggl with one mission - to help women stand squarely in the center of their universe and put their needs first in order to serve others and do all that they do each and every day. If we're not okay, no one around us is okay either. 

 

It's hard to believe we're in the home stretch of 2022. And what a year it has been. I can say this year has be one of my hardest that I can remember but it has ultimately pushed me out of my comfort zone and made me think bigger across all aspects of my life. I still have a lot to figure out and there are several aspects of my life that are out of my control, which makes me bananas, but I'm confident it will all make sense in time!

 

What is keeping me grounded is remembering expert Lola Wright's beautiful quote:

 

In order to grow, sometimes we have to cutback the parts of us that aren't thriving. If this is a season of pruning for you, remember that new growth is always to follow.

 

So for those of you who may be in my shoes, I wish you ease from your pain, positive action in your inertia, kinship in your aloneness and magic in the darkness. 

 

For those of you who are in the groove, I wish you continued abundance and light.

 

theJuggl is going to look a lot different in 2023!

 

I've finally cracked the code on what I want to build - a time-saving place for sharing tools, resources and solutions for all we do. I cannot WAIT to share more when I can!

 

Happy Hanukkah! Merry Christmas! Happy Kwanzaa! And a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

 

Cheers!

Melissa Skoog

Managing Social Anxiety During the Holidays

Expert: Kendall Carriere, Founder of The Deep Center

 

It's Saturday night, you have another holiday party to attend and you have social anxiety.


What can do you do about it?


1. Get out of your comfort zone.

This may mean attending a party even if you don't know anyone, or striking up a conversation with a stranger. The more you expose yourself to situations that make you anxious, the less anxious you will feel in them.


2. Challenge your negative thoughts.
 If you're feeling anxious about an upcoming event, ask yourself if there's any evidence to support your fears. Chances are, you'll find that your anxiety is much worse than the situation warrants.


3. Be prepared.  

If you know you're going to be in a situation that makes you anxious, take some time beforehand to plan what you'll say and do. This will help you feel more confident and in control when the time comes.

How to Keep Your Health Goals on

Track During the Holiday Season
Expert: Nurit Raich

 

1. Get Into The Holiday Spirit & Maintain Your Health Goals.  

Don’t put off getting into the holiday spirit because you are afraid of what that means for your health goals. Instead, go in with a strategy that will keep you on track.

 

2. Practice Mindset Work.

Whether this season excites you or large gatherings make you cringe, your mindset can be the difference between a great time or a morning full of regret. Listen to your body before going back for seconds or feeling that you must not waste a single drop of the holiday cocktails. Instead, keep in mind that delicious foods are not a now or never situation, even if you typically only eat them this time of year. 

 

3. Pencil In Self Care.

It’s easy to let the holidays take over your routine, but it’s important to make time for self care. Set intentions for yourself in short meditations, Choose a new book to finish over the holidays. Soak your stress away in an Epsom salt bath. Get outside and enjoy the cooler weather with short walks between errands. 

 

4. Eat Mindfully & Still Savor Every Delicious Bite.

Choose healthy substitutes for the dishes you prepare. Instead of mashed potatoes, make some roasted sweet potatoes with olive oil, sea salt, and cinnamon. When recipes call for sour cream, use Greek yogurt. These small details will help you eat mindfully and have the option to do so when the time comes. 

 

5. Move Your Body While You Sing Along To Your Favorite Holiday Tunes.

We know the holidays have started when Mariah’s famous lyrics are waiting around every corner. Rather than just quietly singing, move your body like you are on stage singing to a huge crowd. That movement is what your body craves to relieve stress, help digestion, and work off those extra calories you may have picked up. 

 

6. Give Yourself The Gift Of Kindness & Forgiveness.

The most important thing I want you to take from this is to be kind to yourself, even if you go a little overboard.   Give yourself grace and forgiveness. Pick up your healthy habits again and get yourself back on track.
