2020 Won’t Last Forever

To say that 2020 has been challenging is an understatement. This year has put everyone’s ability to stay resilient to the test, taking a toll on our mental health, increasing stress and burnout, and creating a constant state of uncertainty.

I went back and forth so many times on whether or not I should release my new book Mind Over Moment: Harness the Power of Resilience, but I knew if I needed these tools more than ever, chances are you did too. I teach you how to tap into mindfulness to create the life you deserve. If you know me, you know that sitting in a full lotus and finding my Zen is not my style. That’s why I wanted to make mindfulness accessible and easy to understand and practice.

In fact, I’ve come to believe so strongly in the power of mindfulness to strengthen and build resilience that I decided to get a permanent reminder.

That’s right…I got a tattoo!!

I wanted a visual representation to remind myself to stay in the present moment. To see the design and the meaning behind it, watch my latest video.

Even after 2020 is over, we are still going to have twists and turns throughout the rest of our lives. Our ability to come back to the moment and focus on what is most important is a skill, one that we can practice and develop. It’s a muscle we can build.

If you haven’t had a chance to purchase your copy of Mind Over Moment and the companion journal, I want to give you a sneak peek at the framework I take you through to harness the power of resilience, lean into hard things, and live your life on purpose.

Part 1: Mindset includes understanding your brain, habits, emotional intelligence, growth mindset and beliefs.

Part 2: Skillset includes the ability to cultivate positive emotions, manage stress, and engage in activities that are good for us like humor, social connection, mindfulness, and self-care.

Part 3: Reset is getting out of reactivity to focus on what is most important.

Every time I look at my tattoo, I take three deep breaths (that’s all it takes to reset your entire nervous system) and think of something I’m grateful for. 

It may not be a tattoo, but I would love to know what visual reminder you will create to come back to the moment, take a deep breath (or three), and focus on gratitude. I hope you’ll send me a picture or tag me on social media @AnneGradyGroup. 

I am so grateful for you. I love receiving your emails, posts, and videos on how you are practicing Mind Over Moment. Having you in my corner has made such a huge difference this year. 

I hope you have a wonderful week and a happy holiday season full of delicious moments!

Stay brave and resilient,

Anne

Anne breaks down the daily habits and skills needed to grow and cultivate RESILIENCE.

When it comes to taking care of yourself, take the advice you would give your kids or your friends.

It may be exercise, meditation, regular time with a friend, snuggling with a pet, taking time to read for fun, or dancing around your house while jamming out to music. Whatever it is, make it a ritual and part of your resilience-building routine. #mindfulmonday #resilience #productivity #priorities #mindfulness #mindovermoment

What I used to not understand about meditation is that when your mind wanders, you know it's working. Meditation is not some Zen-like calm experience. It's hard work because your mind doesn't stop. Your thoughts will wander because your brain is always looking for something to grab onto.

Expect it and let the thoughts roll by. 🙏 #mindovermoment #meditation #mindfulness #resilience #innerpeace #fridayvibes

#ThrowbackThursday to last October when I got my first tattoo!

I wanted a visual representation to remind myself to stay in the present moment. Every time I look at it, I take three deep breaths (that’s all it takes to reset your entire nervous system) and think of something I’m grateful for.

It may not be a tattoo, but I would love to know what visual reminder you will create to come back to the moment, take a deep breath (or three), and focus on gratitude. Tell me in the comments! 👇 #resilience #mindfulness #reset #tattoo #tinytatsatx #unalome #mindovermoment

The last year has been a defining period in history. So many people have faced incredible setbacks, challenges, and trauma, but we have to be careful that we don't define our lives by "before the pandemic" or "after the pandemic".

This can become the new normal, and we can easily get stuck in a rut. Unfortunately, a rut is nothing more than a grave with no ends, and if you aren’t deliberate, it’s easy to stay stuck there.

If you have found yourself stuck in a rut, here are 5 ways to get unstuck:

1️⃣ Identify what thoughts are supporting/sabotaging your success.
2️⃣ Remember that your thoughts are not facts.
3️⃣ Create a replacement thought.
4️⃣ Make visual reminders.
5️⃣ Talk to yourself rather than listen to yourself.

If you’ve fallen in a rut, you don’t have to stay there. As one of my favorite musicians Ray Wylie Hubbard says, “Get out of a rut and get into a groove.” #resilience #getunstuck #definesuccess #personaldevelopment #selfleadership #liveonpurpose #positivemindset #optimism #newnormal
