Emotional Wellness/Lead with Love

You are having such a great day! You were called back for your audition. You are eating healthy! You are exercising. The picture from your photo shoot came back amazing; then here comes the bad news! Constructive feedback is always welcome, but no more undue pressure, unreasonable comparisons, or harsh judgments.

Take is easy! Instead of responding, listen! Breathe. Do not react! (Depending on the topic and/or severity). Agree to disagree. Then think of a loving peaceful place in your mind. Leading with love or being peaceful to me means accepting that I am doing my best and believing that everyone else is doing their best too. This pandemic is real, and people are under a lot of pressure and experiencing loss.

Be kind my pearl sista!

Lead with love.

End with love.

Mental Wellness- Celebrate Your Wins!

Celebrating the smaller wins on the way to your big wins is a great way to stay focused on your daily goals. Create a gratitude day. We celebrate every Friday! We turn up the music, eat our favorite foods, dance around the house, say “Happy Friday,” take longer walks, dress up a little bit, say aloud our wins so far, etc. I found a informative and insightful article on livehappy.com.

Check it out. Share your thoughts.

Any feedback? Please send info to Staff@aladynamedpearl.com ATTN: Empress Yana/ Mental Wellness feedback

Food Suggestions:

What you eat is also important as a model.

Instead of restricting yourself from food or focusing on what you cannot eat. Let’s explore food. Let’s celebrate the various spices, cheeses, vegetables, meats, and fruits from all over the world.

My favorite place to shop for food is the farmers market.

I can count on one thing, FRESH!

As a chef, I would love to hear from you.
