Where are my fellow control freaks at? 

Aham most likely a fellow pitta dosha as well..

Control can come in so many forms in our lives and how we do it to ourselves. Today I want to share a few lessons I've learned personally and observed in fellow pitta or control freaks.

  • Giving birth the ultimate lesson in surrender
  • Postpartum Healing are you a bounceback person or do you surrender
  • Do you need to control all aspects of your families schedule, your agenda and have trouble asking for help?
  • What I observe in fellow control minded personalities

How I started becoming okay with silence

Once I started practicing slowing down and pausing in my day. I didn’t feel the need to fill my class with the what’s next energy that can feel more Vata aggravating vs pacifying.

Ways I practiced pausing in my daily life:
💖Mauna
💖Yoga Nidra
💖Meditation and Pranayama
💖No radio in the car
💖Silent walks in nature

Control, Delegation, and Balance in Life and Work

Andrea discussed the challenges of releasing control, drawing from their personal experiences. She highlighted how their need for control led to self-destructive behaviors and encouraged listeners to reflect on their own struggles with control. Andrea also shared their experiences with delegating tasks in their family and work life, acknowledging that they sometimes takes on tasks others could handle and could improve by delegating more. She emphasized the importance of balance, self-care, and reflection, and suggested that taking control in certain situations and delegating in others could be beneficial. Towards the end, she shared her approach to managing her workload by prioritizing three main tasks each day.

Postpartum Fitness and Control

Andrea discussed her personal fitness routine and the challenges of postpartum recovery. She highlighted the importance of letting go of control and surrendering, especially during giving birth and postpartum. She shared her own experience with postpartum recovery and the struggle with regaining their pre-pregnancy fitness. Andrea also emphasized the need to accept the changes in their body and not try to rush the process. She urged her audience to reflect on their own lives and identify areas where they need to relinquish control.
