As seen with many other people that have achieved their dreams, being yourself is one of the most powerful tools you can use to succeed in life. Being yourself means having different colors in your hair, wearing clothes that fit you, and practicing yoga or any other style of fitness that feels right for you.
Being you also includes how you speak, what you talk about, and when you're ready to share those things you are- you!
There’s an important lesson in this for all of us here at The Body Sage. It's our latest challenge* and opportunity of the year. We are asking YOU to put down the book (or phone) for just two weeks. No work, no studies, nothing but relaxation.
We understand it may be difficult to do so at times, but we promise you will feel refreshed and recharged after this short break.
After February 2nd, you can pick up where you left off. This isn't a permanent change though - don't take too long to get back into shape! 🙂
So, grab some chocolate, turn off the lights, and enjoy these next two weeks of rest and relaxation. Who knows, you might even find yourself wishing it would last longer...
In May of 2017, B published her first book, The Power of Being Less Powerful. It is also known as The Simplicity Principle or The Practice of Living with less – which is the main theme of the book.
B writes about how we get distracted by unnecessary things in life — including spending money to fulfill false desires. She says that it is possible to live an incredible lifestyle without too much going up in your personal bank account.
By practicing this principle, you will learn how to relax and focus on what matters most in life. You’ll find yourself living with less, but more purposefully. You'll spend time focusing on activities that make you feel happy and inspired, instead of buying another pair of shoes or grabbing lunch at a fancy restaurant every day.
As popular as she is now, it took Aileen quite some time to get here. Starting with just your average everyday girl, Aileen spent her early years working hard at studying business so that one day she could take over the world! Her goal was definitely worthy, but before then she wanted to enjoy her life and make the most of herself first.
Aileen’s humble beginnings are something you should be aware of since they play an important part in how she got where she is today. While many people may not know who she is now, they once knew Aileen for another person – and more than likely didn’t like what they saw.
She struggled with her self-image for many years. It wasn’t until later when things really started changing for the better that we find out about her professional career. But if there’s anyone who knows about Aileen’s past, it’s us! Because our team has worked directly with her, we have lots of stories about her.
We talk about those stories all the time because we want everyone to understand why she does the things she does and the reasons she gets motivated. Having someone else tell the story can sometimes add strength to Aileen’s own inner voice, which is always helpful.
As mentioned before, she is most known for her role as Anissa Williams in The Wire. But aside from that show, she has also featured in other popular shows such as Scandal, House of Lies, and Grey’s Anatomy.
Her first big break was when she played Detective Esme Morales on USA’s series Lie to Me. Here she received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in A Drama Series!
She then went onto play Dr. Amelia Shepherdon ABC’s hospital drama Chicago Med, which premiered in 2016 and ended in 2018. For this one she won two Emmys —one for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series and another for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series!
Simone is well-known for her portrayal of Ava DuVernay in the movie Queen of Earth. You may have seen it yourself – you can find it in many top ten lists! In addition to all these achievements, she also won a NAACP Image Award for her performance in the film.
As mentioned earlier, Brigitte is famous for her use of natural beauty products that are not only effective but also cost-effective.
As mentioned before, she is very popular due to her social media presence. But aside from that, Simi has done lots of other things to get famous!
She is a well-known face in India as she appears in several TV shows and films. These include hosting various talk shows such as The Morning Talk Show with VJ Anand, The Time With Neha, Life OK’s Haute Cuisine, and Comedy Circus along with comedian Kapil Sharma.
Her acting career started off in 2009 when she starred in the movie Love Aaj Kal alongside Ranbir Kapoor. Since then she has appeared in over twenty movies including Kaanakyaar (2016) and Chai Wala Kinwa (2017).
Simone has graced us with some incredible pictures and videos which have gone viral. Some of these are self-shot photos or ones she took herself while traveling or filming a show. Others were shot by photographers or producers who paid her to use them.
Whatever the case may be, she always gives her unadorned beauty worth admiring.
In May of 2015, Yoga instructor Brett Simpson noticed that Ayan George’s YouTube channel was missing an important element: music!
He knew Ayan from school where they both taught yoga so he contacted her to see if she would be willing to join his team as a musician for her channel.
Brett was in the middle of teaching a class when he got the call – Ayan wanted him to teach with her!
He accepted the position immediately and has been filming classes, breathing exercises, and sharing yogic philosophy ever since.
His students have really embraced his music and style, which is integral to Ayan’s success too.
Her followers love his funky, hip-hop inspired songs that feature lyrics about yoga and life. Many people even say that his music helps them relax or find inner peace after listening to one of his albums.
After graduating with her bachelor’s degree in psychology, she decided to pursue her master’s degree in that field before moving onto doctorate level studies. Simona has spoken at many events including TEDx, Money Masters Summit, The Healthiest Way Live Event, and more!
Her success as an entrepreneur and public speaker comes from her no-nonsense approach to business and life.
She doesn’t sugarcoat anything and instead uses it as a springboard for bigger conversations about self-care, wellness, and spirituality.
In this way, her talks always leave her audience inspired by new ideas or ways to improve their own lives.
As mentioned earlier, in addition to being an entrepreneur, artist, and writer, B has her own line of beauty products called The Beauty Brigade. These are all natural makeup products that are both cost-effective and top quality!
The first product she designed and released was the Match Makeup Product Line which contains eight different matchmakers (eyeshadow shades) and two blush/contour duo packs.
These products are all vegan and some are even gluten free! Not only do they look great, but they’re good for your skin too! The company goes beyond just selling merchandise, however; they actively contribute money and resources to charities that help promote diversity and equality.
One such charity is Equal Opportunity Education Fund (EOEF), an organization that works towards ensuring every student has access to a high quality education by investing in educational materials and programs that focus on underrepresented groups in our society.
B donates at least one box of each item from her Match Makeup Product Line to be distributed to students in schools with limited or no budget for educational material. This donation benefits not only those children who will use these items, but it also raises awareness for EOEF and their mission!
Running her business with social justice in mind makes sense because she’s invested her time, energy, and wealth into creating and promoting them, thus giving back is just a natural next step.
