#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Goal Setting

Hey Aerie girls,

I wanted to talk about dreams and goal settings and share some ways I get creative and organised to help me achieve my ambitions.

The first thing to remember is that any dream you have is valid. We are encouraged as young children to be whatever we want when we grow up but as we move through the education system we are then told to choose a college course and pick a career that’s actually attainable…

I just want to tell you no matter what age you are or what you are currently doing we have the power to be and do anything. I recently trained with a 20 times undefeated boxing champ and she only started boxing at 29 years old! She was going through a divorce and had a 8 year old but found what she loved and was talented at and has never looked back!

So now I will share with you things that have helped me get where I am today.

First off I LOVE vision boarding.

My vision board is in my bedroom. I put pictures and quotes on it. Some are my dreams, some inspire me, and some remind me of people and moments that are special to me.

You don’t need rules to make a vision board and I love getting together with my besties and having a whole day of getting creative. I like to grab my fave magazines or images I find online and make it super colourful with crayons and pens.

You will just need a corkboard or even some cardboard you can add pictures and quotes too. Of course you can add other things too if you want, friendship bracelets, gig tickets, cards from your besties! Your board your rules!

So you put a picture of Times Square on your moodboard, what’s next? It’s not just gunna happen by staring at it lol! You’ve got to have a plan. Make your dream a goal, add a date or year when you want it happen, think about things you need to do to make this happen! I call this my POA… Plan Of Action.

A POA is great for bigger goals, which are longer term and require lots of actions. But for everyday things to do, I make lists on my cell phone. I group list items as things I need to do now and things I can do later. So I also keep the highest priority or the nearest deadline things at the top of the list.

The important thing is to find something that works for you. For me it is my vision board, POAs, and cell phone lists.

Don’t be afraid to have big dreams – they’re the best sort! Breaking them down into smaller steps and setting specific goals will make your dreams easier to achieve. You might find your your goals change over time but that’s OK, go for it! You’re still be super effective having dreams and getting things done! And don’t forget to help your besties have inspiring dreams, set goals, and have fun!

Excited to see your vision boards! Tag me @iskra and @aerie #AerieReal

Sending you so much love!

Call Your Doctor Day With Bright Pink

Call Your Doctor Day is today, June 13th! We’re teaming up with the non-profit Bright Pink to remind YOU to take a minute TODAY and schedule your yearly checkup. Need some encouragement? We talked to Dr. Deborah Lindner, OB/GYN and Bright Pink’s Chief Medical Officer, about why it’s so important to see your doctor every year and what to expect from your appointment. Read on to find out why you should take charge of your health and call your doctor!

Call Your Doctor Day With Bright Pink

Why should women go to their doctor every year?

DL: Seeing your doctor or other primary care provider once a year is one of the most important actions you can take for your breast and ovarian health. I remind women that even when you feel healthy you still need to go. It’s important for you and your doctor to have an understanding of what healthy means for you specifically. It’s your baseline.

What if I’m nervous or uncomfortable about going?

DL: That’s natural! But don’t let it stop you from taking care of your body. I encourage women to see their annual exam as this one day a year that you have a partner in managing your health. National Call Your Doctor Day is all about getting up the motivation to call and put your health first. It’s important to find a provider that takes time to answer your questions and makes you feel comfortable. And don’t forget that it never hurts to get a second opinion.

What should we know before our appointment?

DL: It’s helpful to come prepared with your questions—ask us anything, we’re here to work with you—so you can walk away with a more personalized plan to manage your risk for cancer and other diseases. I recommend taking the AssessYourRisk.org quiz by Bright Pink to get a comprehensive report on your baseline risk for breast and ovarian cancer that you can print and bring to your appointment.

Also, it’s helpful to keep track of any changes in your body, specifically in your breasts, or changes to your menstrual cycle or digestive system. If anything has persisted for longer than 2 weeks, bring this to your doctor’s attention.

What should we expect when we’re there?

DL: A well woman exam should include a clinical breast exam, where your healthcare provider will feel your breasts with their hands. It should be thorough, cover all the breast tissue, and typically last several minutes. If your doctor offers this exam, say yes—and if your doctor doesn’t bring it up, make sure you do.

Your provider will also perform a pelvic exam where he or she will actually feel your ovaries to see if there is anything abnormal. During your pelvic exam, you may also receive a pap smear. It’s important to note that a pap smear checks for cervical cancer – not ovarian cancer.

As an OB/GYN, what is your biggest piece of advice for young women?

DL: You’re your own best health advocate. Be confident and take charge of scheduling your appointment. Let Bright Pink help you – join us and Aerie on June 13th  and make the call. Get all the resources you need by visiting CallYourDoctorDay.org.

Through 2017, all annual well woman exams are covered by insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

#AerieREAL Love From Iskra: Beach Workouts

Hey Aerie Girls,  

This time of year is the worst for being bombarded with messages about ‘beach bodies,’ ‘summer bodies’ and ‘bikini bodies.’ The thing is our bodies are beautiful and worthy of wearing whatever we want 365 days of the year and we do NOT need to change for a season.

All of these messages to make us feel like we have to look a certain way have been contrived to make us buy ‘fit tea’ or try a new slimming gadget or even buy a new belly blitzing DVD. When that’s not a reason to feel under pressure to look a certain way. If you love working out you do it for you and not because the media or society has told you you have to look a certain way to wear a bikini.

I will not be working out more or cutting calories to be ‘beach ready.’ The body I already have, I respect and value all year round and know it’s worthy to be on the beach. Being on the beach is about enjoyment, living in the moment, feeling the sand between your toes and the warm sun on your skin, having fun with friends and loved ones.That’s what I want you all to be celebrating this summer– your freedom to know you are good enough just as you are.

I hope you enjoy these videos! We wanted to create something to be different from so many campaigns about ‘summer bodies’ and encourage you to have fun every day of the year in your imperfectly perfect bodies,

love iskra
