Insomnia Line | Radiolab | WNYC Studios

This week’s Radiolab episode Insomnia Line is great start to finish. But the last 11 1/2 minutes is GOLD. Starting at 26:07 is THE BEST relaxation mediation I’ve ever heard, ever. I need to find a way to get that on a loop. When you are ready for bed, open your podcast app, go to this episode and start at 26:07. Then, let me know how awesome it is in the morning!
❤️ 🌙💤

It’s the dead of night, you’re wide awake. And you’re not alone. So we put a phone number on twitter, and spent all night talking to the sleepless among us.

Reel II Real with Coach Herb & B

Check out my chat with Coach Herb and B on their podcast Reel II Real with Coach Herb & B! I loved this because the format was more like a living room chat than an interview. Right up my alley! Please check it out here, on Youtube or on Apple podcasts! And let me know your thought here or under their original post. (Extra ask: go like their post too to show them some love!)

Covid shut things down for a bit but that doesn't stop warriors from taking what they want...and we want to get out and about in NOVA. We loved offically meeting Meg Donnelly, Nova Weekend Warriors (felt like we've know her for ages) with NoVA Weekend Warriors and getting to take over her Podcast for a bit. Listen to what routines we have been able to maintain, had to change and long for to come back!

Listen to our podcast on Apple podcast and more!

🎯𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲 out their boring bandaid to a Transformer bandaid, then take a selfie to document their annual flu shot. 𝙄 𝙬𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙. 𝙏𝙝𝙖𝙩’𝙨 𝙬𝙝𝙤. 𝙈𝙚.😂 😂 😂 Tag me in your flu shot pics this year and I’ll send you some love in your comments section. 💕 ⁣

F𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗼𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝘁𝘀: In Fairfax County, last year they offered free shots in October. I don’t see anything in their site yet, but I will call today to see if anything is in the works and will update here once I have details. Here’s a link to last year’s notice in the meantime: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/health/need-flu-shot-get-one-free-saturday

If you need help locating resources regardless of where you are, I’m no expert, but reach out to me and I’ll try to help you do a google search to refer you to resources in your area. I truly believe one should have to go without because of the cost.

🎤 🤩 I’m used to being the interviewER but I recently got to be the interviewEE on the Reel II Real with Coach Herb & B podcast!!!! So excited to listen this Saturday!!!! Quick ask: Go check out their original post and drop them 3 emojis to tell them you are excited for my episode!

How have your routines changed drastically since businesses and areas have opened back up? We are excited to have @novaweekendwarrior from @novaweekendwarriors as she is definitely a social butterfly like us and if you go to many events in Reston you've seen her around!

Join @jenlenenowakrunningcoach and I on Instagram on my @novaweekendwarrior IG Live at 11:45am ET today. We are dropping a quick special announcement and chatting about intristic and extrinsic motivation for new-to-fitness, returning-to-fitness athletes and those who are athletes but don’t call themselves that... YET (spoiler alert: we wanna change your mind on that philosophy). Hope to see you then!

👟 💕 What’s your #runstory this year? Let me know in the comments or send me a DM! For me, many of you know, I started the year with 𝗮 #𝗿𝘂𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗹𝗮𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝟭𝟰𝟯 𝗱𝗮𝘆𝘀. Since then I’ve been back to my old faithful on-again/off-again relationship with running while getting a daily movement and mobility program fine tuned. Which I’ve been pretty happy with. ⁣

But yesterday, I finally put up my 𝗴𝗼𝗿𝗴𝗲𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗮𝗹 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗯𝗶𝗯 𝗵𝗼𝗹𝗱𝗲𝗿, crafted by the local Herndon amazingly talented Stacie of Obsessive Constructive Designs. You’ll notice the wood lines create a graph 𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝘀𝗶𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗮𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝘆 𝗿𝘂𝗻𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝘁𝘆𝗹𝗲... 𝙖 𝙡𝙤𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙪𝙥𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙣𝙨 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙖𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙤𝙜𝙚𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙧 𝙢𝙖𝙠𝙚𝙨 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙖 𝙘𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚, 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙞𝙚𝙘𝙚-𝙤𝙛-𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠. 😂 ⁣

After putting it up, it also turned out to be the perfect space to add my “𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗱” 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗷𝗲𝗰𝘁 I created at Pinot's Palette Dulles at the beginning of the year. (𝘚𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘢𝘸𝘦𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦 Leslie Kane, Mary Kay Cosmetics Independent Beauty Consultant 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘪𝘯𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘮𝘦 𝘰𝘶𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘱𝘪𝘦𝘤𝘦). ⁣

Well, as you can see... 𝗺𝘆 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝗶𝘀 𝗥𝗨𝗡. It seems like a fine time for a mid year check in. So far, I think 𝘮𝘺 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘥 𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘺 𝘴𝘱𝘰𝘵 𝘰𝘯. Year to date, I’ve:⁣

👟 Run 147 days straight⁣

👣 Run *𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦* other days⁣

😷 Run my business through a flipping pandemic and added new offerings with more to come (online still as of today, not in person, but still... I’m taking it as a win)⁣

🏡 Run our household cleaning schedule after canceling our house cleaning services⁣

🏃‍♀️ Run towards body positive philosophies and run away from antiquated weight and waist measurement goals⁣

With that said, I’m headed out for a solo, about-a-mile, no phone, no Garmin run-for-fun run.... inspired by my newly hung art. Will there be walking, YEP. Might I stop to enjoy the sunset, PROBABLY. Do I still say it’s a run, 𝘼𝘽𝙎𝙊-𝙁𝙇𝙄𝙋𝙋𝙄𝙉𝙂-𝙇𝙐𝙏𝙀𝙇𝙔. ⁣

How’s everyone else doing this year?! Let’s do a mid year check in! Let me know in the comments or DM me!!!

Who’s hanging with the cool kids on TikTok (while we can)?

𝙃𝙞 𝙛𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙨! I’m on TikTok now doing some fun little videos... 𝙬𝙝𝙞𝙡𝙚 𝙞𝙩 𝙡𝙖𝙨𝙩𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙬𝙖𝙮 🤷‍♀️. Just in case, you’ll also find the vids on the new IG Reels too. 📺 𝘖𝘯 𝘮𝘺 𝘐𝘎 𝘱𝘢𝘨𝘦, 𝘺𝘰𝘶’𝘭𝘭 𝘴𝘦𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘙𝘦𝘦𝘭𝘴 𝘪𝘤𝘰𝘯. ⁣

👉 Like this vid here, they’ll not always be specific to my professions in massage and movement. But (hopefully) they’ll be 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 and 𝗳𝘂𝗻 nonetheless. And they’ll always touch in some way, shape or form on health, wellness or fitness... even if sometimes 𝗶𝘁’𝘀 𝗮 𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗰𝗵 (𝙥𝙪𝙣 𝙞𝙣𝙩𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙙). 😂 ⁣

🎬 If you are on the Tok (that’s what the cool kids call it, right?!), drop your username below or dm me... 𝘰𝘳 request a vid you’d like to see me try to make next! No promises though... I’m still on a learning curve here. 💫

The Reston Museum cardboard regatta is replaced this year with the cardboard challenge! I’d like to think the changes were because of the pandemic... but it might have been because of all the chaos we inadvertently created last year?! 😬

https://facebook.com/events/s/at-home-cardboard-challenge/297804458255505/?ti=icl

Check us out! Team Hobnobbers represented today at the Reston Museum's Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta!!! Well we certainly weren’t built for speed but we didn’t sink! Loved when I lifted my paddle up to cheer and MC Andy said “Looks like Meg is doing a little more showboating than rowboating”. 🤣🤣🤣

💕 I couldn’t narrow it down to one myself because I love each for a different reason. But, these are my favs and the ones I wear most often (ok...𝘵𝘳𝘶𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩... 🤷‍♀️ I haven’t worn the wedges this year at all I’m pretty sure... and the white runners were my first pair of sneaks when I started running. Those are unsafe to wear (𝘯𝘰 𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘭𝘦𝘧𝘵) but I’ll never get rid of them because they mean too much to me. ⁣Also, in case you are wondering, heck ya, those ARE pink fuzzy slippers and they are as awesome and tacky and comfortable as they look!!!

Have you ever experienced a massage sidelying? Anyone looking for a little attention to the areas around the hip and glutes, these sidelying techniques offer a great way to explore mobility.

Now you are probably thinking, "that's great Meg. But why are you showing me this technique if you aren't currently seeing clients during the pandemic? " Ok, fair point! But I do have an answer. Actually, I'm still here for you, just in a new way!

Did you know I have my personal training certification and now offer online movement and mobility sessions? You can jump onto novaweekendwarriors.com and book my Moving Conversations and Moving Freely sessions. These eVisits allows us the ability to chat virtually over a HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform. We will chat about your specific goals and take some of the techniques shown here (among others), adapting them and adding them into routines you can perform from the comfort of your own home..

I just created a ✨𝙣𝙚𝙬 𝙝𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙡𝙞𝙜𝙝𝙩𝙚𝙙 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨✨ titled COVID-19 on my @megdlmt IG page to keep that topic easily accessible. ⁣

➡️ Started off today with 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗜’𝗺 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝘆𝗺𝗽𝘁𝗼𝗺𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘀, so that once I decide it’s time to go back to in person appointments, you’ll have access to that to help you determine your level of comfort. ⁣

❓I still don’t have a firm date yet for in-person appointments. But whether that’s a few weeks, a few months or longer away, as soon as I have an idea, 𝘐’𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘦𝘵 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘺 𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘪𝘭. ⁣

❤️ For many reasons, I’ve had to be a little stricter than most with my physical distancing guidelines over the course of the pandemic so far. And as a pretty social person, one of my favorite things is the summer vacation. Lots of friends, family and fun. Summer, the beach and the boardwalk are my three favorite words. But this year a trip to the ‘boards or the beaches of Jersey do not seem to be in the cards. ⁣

🌊 ☀️ 🎢 Instead of a trip back home to smell the salt water air and spend a little coin in the slots of AC, I’ve been using every inch of my tiny 28 sq ft balcony to staycation, to work, to nap, to over water and underwater plants, to chat remotely with friends and family, to drink a cool beverage or three. 🍹 ⁣

🖼 So since I’m spending so much time in such a small space... I asked @mizzmozaic to create a custom made heavy door stopper that could withstand the high winds in the wind tunnel that is Reston Town Center (I still to this day wonder why we are so windy 🌪). But a piece that could also 𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙩𝙨 𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙖𝙨 𝙖 𝙗𝙚𝙖𝙪𝙩𝙞𝙛𝙪𝙡 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙠 𝙤𝙛 𝙖𝙧𝙩. Fun, functional and beautiful! ⁣

🌸 I asked for a 𝙇𝙊𝙏. I wanted a simple shape, muted colors, but a bit of pizazz on one side. Something that looked great but also blended in with my grey floor. Something with a little whimsy but not childish. ⁣

💨 ⛱ I am 𝗕𝗟𝗢𝗪𝗡 𝗔𝗪𝗔𝗬 with the result. 5 sides of calming stone reminiscent of the creek stones we’d find while hiking with my grandma near Pine Lake Park in Jersey. And one spectacular side of whimsy that reminds me of a stroll on the Seaside boardwalk with a view of the roller coaster... under a mirrored moon shining bright... with little fuchsia and magenta and mirrored lights reflecting from the rides and games. It’s personal and perfect and I love it. ⁣

💞 All 6 sides give me ✨𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙨✨! Thank you Jenlene, aka Mizz Mozaic. Your piece is bringing me so much joy and warmth and everything good... which is so very needed right now.

😻p.s. it’s cat approved @ Reston, Virginia

While in person appointments are not an option currently at my studio, it is a great time to step back and address some frequently asked questions about massage. If you want to hear more, feel free to join me on Wednesdays at 12 pm for my new weekly virtual meet up, "Ask The Massage Therapist". We will review some tips, techniques and resources to keep us feeling great, hear from some health, wellness and fitness experts and I'll demonstrate a few exercises from my NoVA Weekend Warriors Moving Freely program, which is available for online eVisits.

🔥 This episode really made me think of my actions. My motto for my massage studio and movement program is: There is no “look” for an athlete or weekend warrior... no cookie cutter approach to athleticism. There is no threshold to meet before using the terms. At ALL levels and ALL abilities... 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗔𝗥𝗘 𝗮𝗻 𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗹𝗲𝘁𝗲! 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗔𝗥𝗘 𝗮 𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗲𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗿!⁣

New episode of NoVA Weekend Warriors: Massage in a Time of COVID-19? Unpacking “Do No Harm” as a massage therapist during the pandemic.

As I continue to weigh the risks and benefits of massage while deciding whether or not to see clients in person, I was finding many massage group discussions remained polarized, with opposite sides (remain closed until a vaccine or see us as essential and allow us to practice without restriction). But I find the majority of us lie somewhere in between those two sides. Many times the debate comes down to 3 words "Do No Harm".

In this episode, we speak to 4 massage therapists about how they've unpacked the role of "Do No Harm" as a massage therapist during the pandemic. We'll find out their interpretation, how or if it has affected whether they are seeing (or plan to see) clients in person. We'll discuss other considerations that each massage therapist should look at as we each make our own decision and touch on how clients can use the information to discuss options with their massage therapist. We also chat about the importance of critical thinking and decision making.

Special thanks to each of my guests:
Allissa Haines with Haines Massage and Massage Business Blueprint
Cal Cates with Healwell
Tania Velasquez with Pinpoint Education and OPEN Bodywork
Jeffrey Montoya with Milwaukee Reiki and Academy of Health
