Do the holidays stress you out?
Is that even a question to be asked?
For whatever reason (and there are so many), this time of year can bring up feelings of isolation, loneliness, and plain old BLAH.
On the flip side, there are a ton of wonderful things about this time of year. I mean, there’s even a Christmas song that says it is (it’s the most wonderful time of the yearrrrrr)
Anyway, as long as you get some downtime, see your family and/or friends, why not get yourself ready mentally and emotionally to manage the ups and downs of the holidays, entering a new year, and leaving behind old baggage.
I’m asked all the time what some of my favorite ways are to destress and practice self-care. Now, it’s not always easy to make the time, because the fact is, life happens. But, there are definitely things that you can do to alleviate your burdens, and just FEEL GOOD.
I’m all about feeling good. Lord knows I have plenty of downs that come with my ups, but you know, the more I take care of myself mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and intellectually, the happier I am.
It’s that simple.
Below you will find a list of all my favorite things. It’s not so much about the thing itself (I only use the best), it’s more about the act of taking the time out to do whatever you need to do to feel good–during the holidays and every day.
Today we’re talking about something every person on the planet has done! That’s right we’re diving into why we judge others and the bigger impact it has on our life.
Tune into my latest Keepin’ It Real video below for my insights on this highly debatable topic and then be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below.

What do you think the judgments that you have about others say about how you’re judging yourself?

Before you read any further, I just have to share what’s going. I have been taking a 10,000 ft. view of my business and life and have come to the realization that it’s time for restructuring. This is a very exciting place for me right now because I’m a firm believer that in order to expand, sometimes, we just gotta let some stuff go and be willing to try new things out.
Ok back to today’s Keepin’ It Real:
Do you wanna know what sets apart those who succeed and those who just coast along?
The ability to bounce back.
Specifically, the ability to bounce BACK from rejection, so-called failures, betrayals, and everyday stuff that happens. As someone who openly shares her falls in life, I have a ton of experience with falling and bouncing back. Now in the beginning, my bounce-back muscle wasn’t as strong as it is now. It’s taken years of making mistakes, dealing with rejection, and broken relationships that have truly trained me to become the warrior that I am. Which leads me to today’s Keepin’ It Real video. I received a question from a woman named Erin about this exact topic: How to bounce back.
I did some research and found an excellent article over at The Daily Muse that answered Erin’s question perfectly.
It’s an important topic because as I said before, the ability to bounce BACK is what sets apart those who achieve success in their life as opposed to people who simply coast along and spend their life “wishing” and “hoping” for luck to happen. Way to often I hear, “Vasavi, I can’t move forward because I’m stuck” or “I’m afraid to do XYZ.” When you exercise your bounce back muscle, NOTHING can stop you- not your fear, not other people’s perceptions, not yourself-doubt- NOTHING.
When you get your bounce back, NOTHING can stop you. (click to tweet)
After you finishing watching today’s videos, I’d love for you to share in the discussion below:
What have you had to bounce back from? And, how did you do it?
Thank you so much for being a part of this community and until next time,
Keep it real 😉 Vasavi
P.S. If you want to work out your bounce back muscle then this is for YOU: I love to speak to people 1:1 so go ahead and set up your 20-minute “no strings attached” call with me here.
I never quite understood why I was given the life and the opportunities that I was given, when somewhere across the world, across the city, heck, even across the street, there is a woman (or man) with the same abilities and desires, and that for whatever reason, can’t seem to make his/her wishes come true.
Do you remember when you were a kid and were told to make a wish right before you blew out your birthday candles? Or maybe when you were walking on the sidewalk you would see a bunch of dandelions and blow out the little furry things and make a wish?
Remember when making a wish didn’t seem so silly and rather, just made sense because, as children we believed that anything was possible?
