Building Your Fit-Intuit Toolkit

In this video, Theresa explains the meaning behind Fit-Intuit

Life is not easy. There are 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows, and there’s really no avoiding the ups and downs. The one thing we do have a little bit of control of, however, is how well equipped we are for the journey. Tara Brach, one of my role models in the field of mindfulness and meditation, shares a sign she saw for a meditation retreat. It read, “You can’t control the waves, but you can learn to surf.” Our ability to “surf” is largely dependent upon learning and building helpful like skills so we can stay afloat, and not just stay afloat but actually enjoy the ride.

On this page, every week I’ll provide some tools that you can add to your toolkit. These tools may be in the form of meditation practices, helpful books, articles or videos, journaling exercises, and really any teaching or reminder that you can fall back on to help bring more ease into your daily life. This page will be a growing toolkit which will be changed weekly so make sure you come back frequently to see the weekly “toolkit additions”!

I hope these help you surf the waves with confidence, ease, and enjoyment!

SOME NICE READS…

the wise heart

“The Wise Heart” is authored by Jack Kornfield. Jack was one of the first people to bring mindfulness and meditation practices to the West, and he continues to teach in a very loving, accepting, and inspirational manner. Although this book draws on Buddhist principals, it is universal in its ability to guide us in relating to the mind, body and all of life with a deeper attention and open-hearted intention. As he quotes the Dalai Lama, “Buddhist teachings are not a religion, they are a science of mind”. I hope these teachings bring more peace of mind and ease in your life.


let go and be guided…
audio and video mindfulness practices

Becoming aware of the breath is oftentimes one of the first mindfulness practices introduced. In this short guided practice, I offer the invitation to come into the present moment and rest in the sensations of the breath. For some, however, the breath may pose challenges if breathing is painful or uncomfortable. There’s no need to force yourself to stay with the breath if it doesn’t serve as a good resting place. I encourage you to give it a try and see what works best for you!
