GOT ANXIETY? DO THIS.

 

Hey Love,

Because of the recent disaster in my hometown of Houston, I’ve been receiving messages on my social media daily asking how I deal with anxiety. I also get messages regularly asking how to get started with praying so I thought I would repost the video below from this spring. I admit I was filled with a rush of panic the day of the gas shortage in Dallas last week. The long lines at the gas stations, horrible traffic, people were frantic, my phone was blowing up and as an empath I feel the collective energy around me. Thank God a girlfriend gave me a heads up the night before about the gas sitch and I was able to get to the gas station early that morning, but still sat in quite a line. Instead of staying glued to the news, I tried to stay off social media last weekend and plug in to God even deeper.

Prayer is powerful and if you feel the nudge to begin praying, I would say now is a great time to start. It’s never to late! One thing I didn’t mention in the video is that prayer does not have to be complicated. When I start an entry in my prayer journal, I treat it like a letter to God with “Dear Heavenly Father,…”.  Just talk to God as you would a dear friend or the ultimate daddy. Before I give Him my laundry list of needs/wants, I thank Him for all my blessings and answers to prayer no matter how small. You don’t have to be overly eloquent or religious. Just think of it as your most importance chat of the day.

Praying is one of the best things you can do to nix anxiety. When I start giving God a list of gratitude, I immediately feel the anxiety drain from my body and peace rush over me. I do this all throughout the day!! Sometimes I wonder if God laughs because I’m constantly chatting with Him throughout the day. He’s probably thinking, “Girl, you are one Chatty Cathy!” hahaha! If your anxiety is heightened like so many people around the world, I encourage you to begin praying and if you already pray a little bit– AMP IT UP.

 

 

Praying for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and the devastation Irma is already leaving. Praying for Florida as her arrival approaches there. Praying for all the families who lost loved ones in the earthquake in Mexico.

Praying for the world.

I know it’s easy to get pissed at God when events like this happen, but I encourage you DO NOT allow your mind and spirit to entertain those thoughts.

Instead, lean in and rely on Him.

MY P.M. SKINCARE ROUTINE

Hey Loves,

After a year of stripping back my skincare routine and on the hunt for the right products, I am happy to share I have struck gold. I met the Laurie Nicoll, the founder of STEMULATION this Spring at the Indie Beauty Expo and loved the sound of her products. Not only are they 87% botanical (plant based) and organic, but the foundation of Stemulation is stem cells. She sent me her entire line and I’ve been using it diligently for about 4 months. Here’s what I think:

You Are THAT Woman.

[With my on-camera coaching client and friend, Stefani Threadgill on her CW33 TV  taping]

 

Hey Sista,

As I was cleaning up my messy desk today, I came across this notecard I had saved a few years ago. It made me think of a powerful experience I had yesterday with a few other ladybosses. The notecard does not say who the writer is, but it could have come directly from me:

 

“I am that woman. I have a brilliant heart & a beautiful mind.

I am me, a perfectly flawed, beautyFULL work in progress.

I promise to lift women up, have their backs & make it safe for them to be exactly WHO THEY ARE. 

I’m on a MISSION to raise the standards for how we treat each other, how we treat ourselves, and how we treat the world. 

Every time I look in the mirror I’ll remind myself that I’m not alone, that I’m beautiful, that my voice matters & 

that I AM ENOUGH.” 

 

I encourage you to print that out as a reminder. If you have been following SOS for a while, you know this is my mission and it has been a beautiful experience to go out in the field and work more 1×1 with women. To see women in action, pushing past their fears, living this mantra, and stepping into their purpose is mind-blowing.

My on-camera coaching client Stefani is one of the hardest working women I know! She was given her own segment on the hit CW33 show NewsFix and hired me to sharpen her on-camera presence. She is a brilliant sex therapist with a dream to reach more people and save marriages.

With any dream there are many components that go into it. For television, the list is endless from your voice, delivery, content, energy, charisma, makeup, hair, wardrobe and on and on. I have been on a zillion sets with a zillion producers, makeup artists, stylists, camera operators, etc. Just one of those people can have a bad vibe and wreck your flow. That’s an overall life lesson in who you surround yourself with and why I have copied Oprah’s quote and posted it on the right side bar of this blog, “Be responsible for the energy you bring to this space.” 

 

[With MUA Daniela Bell]

 

Yesterday, Stefani had a big tape day and knocked it out of the park. My amazing makeup artist friend, Daniela- owner of The Makeup Zone– did her makeup so beautifully. The collaborative effort was total perfection! Back to this part of the above quote:

Lift women up, have their backs & make it safe for them to be exactly WHO THEY ARE.

I left the shoot with tears in my eyes. Not just because I was a proud coach, but proud to be part of something so special and witnessing a purpose-driven woman step into her greatness. Regardless of our profession, shouldn’t we all strive to be THAT type of woman?  I challenge each of you to be more conscious and intentional about lifting  women up. The first step is to stop being so self-absorbed and stop making everything about you. Sorry, not sorry, if that pisses you off. We have enough pressure and things that tear us down. Don’t add to that problem. Help eradicate it.

 

 

In my on-camera confidence workshops, I teach women to change their physicality to get out of their heads before stepping on set or on stage to speak. Loved catching Stefani do her “Wonder Woman Pose” before filming started. This works and helps you go in to any stressful situation. I like to flip my head over and shake my hair and always pull my shoulders back and WALK TALL. Do you have a quick physical confidence builder?

 

Make it a daily habit to lift, compliment, hug, smile and empower other women.
GROUP FIST PUMP!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME… so I’m giving you another gift! 

It has been such a blast celebrating my birthday month and sharing my favorite products which all happen to be owned by fabulous ladyboss’s!  Big thanks to TeaMi Blends, Stemulation Luxury Skincare, Heroes Beauty and drum roll…..

ABI FERRIN! 

 

When I first moved to Dallas, Abi and I were judges together for the Little Black Dress Designer Competition founded by my longtime Houston friend, Jeff Shell- owner of the Neal Hamil Agency.

Abi Ferrin has a passion for empowering women and has been doing so through her eponymous clothing line for 14 years.  As a fashion designer, she has had a perfect platform to inspire women, and as a philanthropist she created her company to support women while dressing them. Read here for more about Abi. 

Abi is giving one lucky duck my favorite jumpsuit from her line, The Romy– a $315 value.  Make sure you are following me on Instagram @tiffanyhendra to participate.  Winner announced next Monday, August 28th on IG. Good Luck!

 

 

Yes, It Works!

 

Happy Weekend Wonder Women!

We had a blast kicking off the first week of my birthday month by giving away my favorite detox system by TeaMi Blends. I get messages and emails constantly asking if it really works. YES, it works! I would never, ever promote anything and put my name behind a product if I didn’t love it and find it effective.

That being said, the skinny and colon teas in the 30-Day Detox are NOT a quick fix. Many people are looking for that magic product or diet for weightloss and this is not it. A few people have told me they have tried other “skinny” teas on the market and they didn’t work for them.

You must do the ALL the work including a clean diet and regular exercise.

Detoxes aid in weightloss because they help the body get rid of toxins that may be preventing your metabolism to function properly. I am all about gut health right now and researching how it effects adrenal fatigue. Look into it! Also, slow and steady wins the race. Losing weight slowly and pampering your body during the process will ensure long term success.

Trust me, being in the modeling industry for 25+ years — I know all about starvation, binging, harsh diet pills from Mexico, uppers, laxatives, hours of step aerobics and all the horrible things many of us have tried in the attempt to lose weight.  I am sure that all the years of not honoring my body and abusing it is a big reason I am having to do all of these healing things to restore it at almost 46 years old.

It’s not about being “skinny”.

It’s not about a thigh gap.

It’s not about wearing a size 2.

It’s about honoring this one body God blessed me with.

It’s about respecting myself.

It’s about being strong and vibrant.

It’s about doing the right things now so I feel and look my best 20 years from now.

It’s about having the energy to walk out my destiny. (DVF is 70 and she is still killing it in business & media and looks like a million bucks!!)

 

No photoshop! Everyone is right about the Samsung camera phone. Tried my hubby’s phone for the first time.

 

I proudly show off my “TeaMi Tummy” (hey, that should be a hashtag #teamitummy) and am proud of myself for doing the work and not just constantly complaining about it.

Get your 30-Day Detox for 15% OFF at www.teamiblends.com and make sure to get a tumbler! It’s a gamechanger and makes the process so much easier. I’ve done detoxes that I had to cook in a pot and was a slave to  the kitchen for a week. Not convenient!

Keep believing.

Keep moving forward.
