By changing your emotions, you change your experience. How? By aligning your thoughts to match your desired feelings.
You Can Master Your Emotions.
When you think self-degrading thoughts of judgment, shame, and scarcity, you produce their emotional equivalent of feeling miserable, desperate, and unloved.
The opposite is TRUE, as well.
When you think empowering thoughts of appreciation, forgiveness, compassion, and generosity, you recreate the reciprocal feelings of joy, kindness, and universal love.
What you see (in the mirror) is what you get.
🔺When you see yourself with the eyes of acceptance and love, you act as your own best friend. 🔺The results are immediate. You move from a place of judgment to a place of confidence and courage. 🔻No, occasional negative thoughts don’t mean that you don’t love yourself. 🔻It’s how you handle them that creates your overall EXPERIENCE (and results!)
What you see in the mirror is who you are on the inside.
Your habits, actions and behavior create your results.
Every aspect of our wellbeing is interconnected. How we do one thing is how we do everything!
If you dread letting one more year/month and day pass by without feeling as your most empowered, confident and self-assured self, now it’s the perfect time to schedule an orientation call with me and learn what`s stopping you from achieving the life of your heart`s deepest desires.
Have you ever busted your head searching for supplements, “miracle” facials, or super expensive skin products that will give you the glowing skin you deserve? I know I have. And it didn`t wor.
Of course, what we put On our skin matters tremendously. I am a devoted proponent of regular exfoliating and high-quality serums. However: if our hormones are imbalanced, if we are chronically stressed, dehydrated and consuming too many processed foods that cause inflammation — you guessed it, even the most expensive products will stop working.
What made the biggest difference for my skin is stress management, combined with getting enough sleep and eating a variety of smart fats, antioxidant rich fruits, and greens.
Here is my formula. Easy to remember and very effective.
It spells S.K.I.N:
S. — schedule regular facials that promote cell renewal in your skin
K. — taKe vitamin A, D and K (essential for healthy skin and bones)
I. — intake happy thoughts and lower your stress with meditation and exercise
N. — nourish yourself daily with omega 3 rich foods, vegetables and antioxidants
Sounds pretty simple? It is. Yet, personally, It took me a couple of years to nail it down. Why? Simple doesn’t mean easy. I am here for you to help you brainstorm what in your lifestyle makes attaining glowing skin difficult.
“I love working with A-M, getting weekly assignments and experimenting with different foods and seeing what works for my body. I also like that`s is not a race and not a competition. It`s totally working. Everyone is commenting on how good I look.I feel so great.
My skin is glowing…I feel happy, energized and confident. I eat anti-inflammatory and anti-aging foods, and I feel and I look younger. I feel so much better about my self-esteem.It is very important to work with a coach because you keep yourself accountable…learning how to eat, what to eat, and implanting positive seeds in your brain. I highly recommend it to everybody! It`s the perfect package: getting all the information I need, the motivation, and the support.I absolutely recommend Ana-Maria to everybody! I am so glad she is in my life.It is PRICE-LESS.
It`s the best investment you can do in your life. You are changing your habits forever.” (K.B.)

Don’t wait until you are desperate to change your life.
My responsibility as a practicing health&life coach is to always be honest with you, with no sugar-coating. Nobody will come to save you. No genie, no magic potion, no-one.
▪️ What do I mean: nobody can help us if we don’t want to accept responsibility for our thoughts and habits. It’s time to wake up from the illusion that some people have it all figured out while others do not. ▪️ It’s just not true. Most of us, regardless of where we are on the scale of personal growth, still experience negative thoughts and insecurities. ◾️ The difference is in the level of our self-awareness of these thoughts. Do we allow them to affect us, or do we let them go with ease? ▪️ Thoughts are neutral. Their meaning is not. It’s dependent on our emotional state. ▪️ Behind every reoccurring negative thought, there is an underlying need that needs to be expressed. ▪️ When it’s not expressed, it becomes a compulsion that leads to addictive behaviors, chronic discontment, and lack of fullfilment. ▪️ The positive meaning of stress, fatigue, and self-sabotage is they can serve as a catalyst for the URGENCY to take charge of your life and take better care of yourself.
Don’t wait until it’s urgent to prioritize your emotional and physical health.
Take an action step right now!
How to take action: 1. Be mindful of your thoughts. 2. Don’t act on your thoughts. 3. Replace negative thoughts with their empowering reframing. 4. Don’t quit on yourself when things don’t go well. 5. Find a mentor/work with a coach/join a support group online/distance yourself from people who don’t aspire you to be the best version of yourself.
Do you want to break free from your routine without breaking the law? 🙂 This blogpost is for you!
Note: Being B.A.D is intentionally meant as a separate (and occasional) activity, in addition to our established self-care.
Self-care is the routine we perform on a daily basis to keep our emotional, physical and mental health in check, whereas being B.A.D is about breaking the routine and indulging in your favorite, quo-on-quo, “naughty” pleasures.:)
Sometimes, we just want to be B.A.D. This is a manifestation of the Rebellious Inner Child Syndrome. What does our inner child want? She wants attention, adventure, creativity, and (overall) more fun.
B.A.D. is an acronym that stands for: B = Break free from your routine A = Act naughty D – Do some fun crazy stuff!!
When we deprive our inner child of our attention, eventually she finds a way to rebel: whether is through obsessions with different addictions (binge eating, overspending, orthorexia), self-sabotage or other means of seeking attention.
If we don`t nurture our inner child with love and attention, we numb a part of ourselves that needs to be expressed. Eventually, this neglect results in different issues: from commitment issues to attachment issues, from undereating to compulsive eating tendencies, from completely disregarding the body to obsessing with our physical image. The aftermath would look different for each person, but it comes from the same place: our inner child feels neglected and is acting out.
Experimental Exercise Related to Being B.A.D
Create a list of “bad” behaviors or activities that are not deconstructive to your health and bring you a lot of joy and excitement. Think of activities that you don`t usually do but have always wanted to try out, or do more of. Let your imagination go a bit wild! You have full permission to get very creative with this exercise.:))
For example, last week I decided to nurture my inner child by taking a day off, treating myself with a nice coffee and spending a few hours at a coffee shop reading a book!
Being B.A.D doesn`t have to be that extravagant either! It simply means you are breaking from your usual routine and doing something exciting and fun.:)
I really hope you enjoy this exercise. Forward it to a friend and why not be B.A.D together?:) The more people break B.A.D at the same time, the merrier!
If you are surrounded by people who bring you down, you’re very likely to succumb to their negativity. But that shouldn’t be the case!
1) Accept that you’re not responsible for other people’s behavior.
But you’re responsible for your reaction to what happens around you. Forgiving injustice doesn’t mean you condone it. It means you choose to protect and honor your sanity. You forgive in order to set yourself free from grudges! Forgiveness is an act of self-care.
2) Accept that suffering often drives progress.
Think about it: if your job makes you miserable, your relationships don’t fulfill you, or your body doesn’t deal happy and healthy — that in itself is a baddass motivation for moving on and changing your life! If it is unbearable to remain stuck in unhappy life, it becomes bearable to face your fears, seek help, and move on.
3) Accept that reward is on the other side of sacrifice.
What happens after a sweaty exercise that kicked your butt a hundred times in a row? You brush off the sweat and feel amazing! The endorphins kick in and you forget about how hard the workout seemed in the beginning. Now you’ve entered the joyous state of victory and self-accomplishment.
Yes, hard work is hard. Change is hard. But it pays off!
Ask yourself: do you prefer to pay the price of stress and misery or do you prefer to pay the cost of changing your mindset, and to improve the quality of your relationship to yourself and others?

I am so passionate about empowering women to transform their self-talk and build more confidence because I know how it feels to continually sabotage yourself, to feel disconnected from your body, and to avoid your reflection in the mirror – affirming that you are not “enough” and will never be loved for who you are. What a disempowering way to view yourself! But it was the Universe`s way to teach me what I know so that I could rebuild my confidence from zero to a hundreed. And you can do it, too!
Once I hit a low bottom of anxiety and low self-esteem in my early twenties, I finally realized that it is time for me to commit to moving forward from my past. During this process of trying different techniques and becoming a licensed coach (accredited by the Health Coach Institute), I learned how to love and accept my body, the way it is, by practicing mindful eating and self-love, walking with more confidence (with straight back, my shoulders back and my heart open to the world…), and feeling connected to my feminine power and inner beauty.
My clients and I are the living proof of the unlimited potential we all carry to uncover our unstoppable confidence and empowerment. It is never too early or too late to prioritize yourself!
I have been more than thrilled about my experience with Ana-Maria! I am really impressed with her customized and agile approach to wellness and life-coaching. The progress that I accomplished in the first two months of collaborating with her is phenomenal, both physically and emotionally. The results came so fast and are so tangible that my motivation to get to the best version of myself is growing by the hour. I didn`t realize how much I already knew about wellness until I started working with Ana-Maria. However, she has been the driving force behind guiding me, keeping me organized and showing me ways of applying the knowledge I already have and the new knowledge that I am acquiring through her. I can`t wait to see how far she will help me to get in my journey of discovering my true self and being the best version of myself that I could ever be!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Ana-Maria!
