If we can all just agree that we are humans with brains and
realize that brains tend to respond to times of uncertainty,
change, and real threat in very predictable ways as anxiety, worry,
and fear...then we can immediately be compassionate with ourselves
because it just means that we're human. Every single person that is
going through COVID19, they're human and they're experiencing what
it means to be human which is: We react to our surroundings in
these predictable ways. - April Seifert
If thoughts and
feelings are not us then why are they there in the first

Power Quotes From The
The Greatest Self-Care Hack
"If you are feeling anxious, worried, emotionally exhausted,
and unable to focus, the very first thing you need to understand is
that there is nothing wrong with you. You are not deficient, weak,
or handling this worse than anybody else; it is just that you are a
human who has a brain and that brain is reacting in ways that
brains do given the circumstances that we're in and that is nothing
to be ashamed of, ever." - April Seifert
What Are Anxiety And Fear?
"You are not your thoughts nor your emotions. You are also not
your bodily sensations of fear. What do fear and anxiety mean? They
are just bodily, emotional thought processes that are happening in
your body and in your mind but they are not you. You can be an
observer of that and the more distance you put between yourself and
that process, the more you'll be able to move through it, feel it,
and realize that they're nothing that has to do with your next
step." - April Seifert
You Are Your Rooted Consciousness
"If it's not accurate or helpful, you don't have to buy into
that thought. You are not that story, you are not your belief
systems, you are not your thoughts nor your feelings. You are that
centered consciousness awareness that is deeply rooted in the
things that don't change no matter what situation or circumstances
you're in; that is your core." - April

Are you getting the
quality nutrition your body needs?
It's what provides us with energy every day. And when we don’t
give our body the nutrition it needs, we feel it. It’s in the way
we lack motivation. It’s in the way we get stuck in ruts, dragging
ourselves to work, to lunch, back to work, and back home...
You don’t need to hire a nutritionist, though. You don’t need to
live at the gym, either. In fact, all you really need is about 3
minutes a day… and Organifi will do the rest.

Nutritional Needs Covered.
