Express’ness Episode 3 w/ John

Check out this week’s Express’ness with my dear friend John from NZ – he’s been a huge support for me ever since I met him. He has a really cool story of how he connects to his John’ness and a super neat perspective on his life.

What ignites your ‘ness?

Love your ‘ness: http://ift.tt/1fmdbEi Welcome to Express’ness Interviews! Your ‘ness is already part of you, sometimes it’s harder than others to connect with but all the love you could ever need is found within you. Everyone has a ‘ness…oh your name is Jeff? What’s your Jeffness? Perhaps your name is Jean? When you are feeling good you are in tune with your Jeanness. What’s that? Your name is Kelsey? Have you found your Kelsness? You get the idea. Take a moment to think about what things make you come alive! Is it reading? Writing? Working out? Singing? Laughing? Learning? Teaching? Gaming? Meditating? Finding your ‘ness is required here in this space. I want you to find what makes you feel good, what encourages you to be good to yourself, inspires you to make choices best for you, motivates you to reach your goals and succeed, all while having a positive outlook on both yourself & the world around you.

5 Types of Coachella Hangovers & How to BEAT EM

How to Fix A Coachella Hangover

1. Overstimulation hangovers

I’ve been to music festivals before and they are a blast – jumping from stage to stage, stopping to check out people in costume, dance with festival characters, interacting with art exhibits set up, it can be a lot to take in. There are 100 amazing, beautiful things going on, all at the same time.

When you’re there it’s like another world, an alternate reality, and you adapt, creating a home for yourself in this new environment. There are a ton of good vibes flowing, people are friendly and love the strangers next to them with ease. Overstimulation can be in negative ways and positive ways – but I think it’s safe to say in the Coachella world, it’s all good.

When it’s over it gives you amazing memories, new friends, rad new beats to download, but can also leave you feeling very drained . Feeling drained is OKAY – it’s normal, all five of your senses have been working overtime this past weekend and it’s time to go easy on yourself now.

Here are three tips to beat an overstimulation hangover:

  • MeditateHere is a guided meditation I’ve felt major shifts from, even if I only have time to do one minute of it. It’s by one of my mentors, Gabrielle Bernstein, and it’s called backpack meditation #3 because it can be used on-the-go whenever you need to clear negative energy and move back into a place of peace within.

  • Journal – Recapture your fun times from the weekend by writing it out. Writing is a way to relive the weekend with your pen to paper relationship. Talk about everything you experienced – all the things you did, people you met, insights you’ve taken away with you. Writing will help you release excess energy you picked up being around all kinds of people. Once it’s out of your mind you can have more room for quiet as you transition back into the swing of things.

  • Sleep – Chances are you stayed up a little later than you usually do, be sure you are ‘getting horizontal’ earlier than normal this week and don’t worry about things you need to do around the house. There will always be more to do, you can’t buy more time so give yourself the gift of sleep. Maybe even purchase a nice lavender candle to help facilitate your head to pillow bond.

How to Fix A Coachella Hangover2. Social friend hangovers

When you’re in a group there can be a lot of compromising, especially when it comes to music festivals – everyone has someone special to them they want to see! Does “Let’s see this band!” or “I want to go over here!” or “We need to stop to eat soon.” ring a bell?

Going with the flow in a group doesn’t always mean you get to do exactly what you want to do, but you do them anyways for the sake of the group. Use this week to get back in touch with YOU, what do you need to do to reamp your energy? What is going to help you get back in the groove of your life?

It’s important to know which situations fill you up with energy and which ones drain you – I consider myself a hardcore extrovert, but as I get older I realize in order to show up 100% for my friends and family in my positive jess’ness way I need to make sure I have solo time. My solo time is time I use to charge my batteries and work on things that ignite my inner jess’ness – only after I fill myself up I can then genuinely share my energy with others.

There has been so many situations in my life where people come up to me and say, “Make me laugh,” when I wasn’t in the mood…shit got awkward. Being able to help me BEFORE I help others make the whole, make me laugh situation, 500 times easier.

What activities fill you up with energy? It may be simple like reading your favorite book, maybe downloading music, or crafting – try to engage in some of those activities this week to regain some inner vitality.

3. Expectation hangovers

Before every big event, there is always going to be some kind of expectation, it’s natural! Maybe the festival didn’t play out like it did in your head during your 10 hour drive into the desert? Maybe that guy or girl you were hoping would meet up with you was no where in sight? Or perhaps the outfit you brought the second day was also on 5 other people with the same hair-do? It happens.

Try not to hold on to the past – what happened at Coachella, all happened in Divine spirit. Whatever went down, you needed to experience for a reason. Whether that reason was to learn something new about yourself, challenge you to think differently, or sway your perspective about something that is for you to decide. Give journaling a go and see what comes up for you about your trip if you’re unsure about this.

Whatever went down – forgive yourself, and let go. If someone did you wrong in some way remember that when we forgive others, we aren’t giving them permission to screw us over again, or make whatever they did to us okay. When we forgive we are releasing ourselves so we are no longer holding on to the negative feelings. Holding on to grudges only weakens our power and gives the other person all of it. Journal it out and burn the sheet of paper if you need to, whatever is going to help you let go your expectations and move back into the present.

4. Alcohol hangovers

Two concepts: water & green smoothie – crazy right? No, what’s crazy is the amount of crop tops and ripped shorts you saw this past weekend. Up the water x2 this week, and replace your breakfast with a big fat green smoothie to get yo greens in.

My go-to green smoothie recipe:
  • kale or spinach
  • chia seeds
  • flaxseeds
  • unsweetened shredded coconut
  • banana
  • 1 scoop vega one plant based vanilla protein powder (super rad flavor!)
  • unsweetened coconut milk
  • cinnamon

5. Food hangovers

Festivals and funnel cakes…they go together.

Food trucks and outdoor music…they’re best friends.

Too much sugar throws off the balance in our bodies, while not enough water can make us crave all kinds of things…like more sugar. As we move into Spring and the weather is getting warmer, giving yourself a little detox is a great time to do it.

As you find time for yourself this week to do what your ‘ness is guiding you to do, and you find time to meditate the craziness of the weekend away, try creating meals that will help you physically detox from all the alcohol and fun.

I have a gentle 2 week detox program for instant download you can read more on here to help you get started. In the program you will find special foods to include, foods to exclude, grocery lists, success tips, and 20 recipes.

Focus this week on homemade meals with as much color as possible and you will be feeling better in no time – you may even be ready for round 2 coachella this weekend…
