I chose the word REFLECT for June because I would love to have everyone that participated in the Align and Shine Challenge join me with intention to reflect on our experiences. We grow by reflection, by thinking about what we did right, and what we did wrong (or where we could grow). What felt great, and what didn’t feel so great. By looking back at, and reflecting, on our experiences and feelings it allows us to make our best choices moving forward. To be on our best path, for right now. Reflection is vital to learning and growing. Experience is the best teacher, if you couple it with reflection even better!
It’s such a simple thing, but when I get in a place where I’m really frustrated, stressed, or overwhelmed, just the quick act of writing 5 things I’m grateful for in a journal make a daily difference. Allowing me the time to reflect on what’s important and positive and right here.
I try to be present, be focused, to have intention. Yet there was something so powerful to wake up every day during the Challenge and have my focus dictated to me. To be given my two little challenges towards mind and body health, to not have to come up with it on my own AND to be doing it along with 1,000s of other motivated inspired health conscious individuals. And lots of you posted amazing pictures and videos of yourselves Aligning and Shining!

I had an Align and Shine Challenge closing party debuting our amazing new Dailey Fusion class Sunday night. I know how enjoyable this challenge was for me, but I loved I hearing the stories about the difference it made for some of the women in my community- it also made me want to hear from you!
I learned a lot about myself and about some of my Students last month. My Mantra was “I am strong” and I learned that having that on my computer to wake up to every day really did make a difference. I am going to continue to post my WOM on my computer to keep the reminder.
Take some time to reflect upon the last month and the Align and Shine Challenge. One of our missions at The Dailey Method is that we strive to empower individuals to become their most vibrant and authentic selves, through mind/body transformation within a compassionate and supportive community. I would love to hear your story! Your story could give others the motivation to take the first step to better health!
We hope you continue to ALIGN AND SHINE all summer long! If you will be traveling and exploring (like I will be) this summer, don’t forget to check out our streaming options. And share your pics with the hashtag #livingadaileylife.
“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.”-Laozi
