Mettre en place des routines bien-être avec Mon Moment Magique

Comment apprendre à prendre soin de soi ? Comment s’offrir des pauses de bien-être dans une vie quotidienne bien remplie ? Comment mettre en place une routine bien-être le matin ?

Rituels bien-être, gestion des émotions, détente, confiance en soi, Miracle Morning, bonheur, développement personnel… Juliette Siozac, fondatrice de Mon Moment Magique, nous parle un peu de tout ça dans ce super interview !

Après 11 ans d’une vie professionnelle intense en agences de communication, Juliette Siozac a opté pour une reconversion totale en créant le concept original et novateur qu’est Mon Moment Magique. Et elle a eu bien raison ! Aujourd’hui le concept cartonne avec des ambassadeurs dans toute la France. Juliette, on l’adore : son dynamisme, son engouement, sa joie de vivre sont contagieux !

Salut Juliette ! Peux-tu nous expliquer ce qu’est Mon Moment Magique ?

Mon Moment Magique est un concept d’ateliers bien-être qui a pour ambition d’éveiller les enfants de manière ludique au développement personnel. Ils découvrent des pratiques bien-être pour apprendre à prendre soin d’eux, gérer leurs émotions, avoir confiance en eux, être des enfants heureux et donc demain des adultes heureux.

J’ai d’abord lancé les ateliers sur Aix-en-Provence en 2015, puis j’ai créé une communauté d’ambassadrices et d’ambassadeurs, ils sont à ce jour 170 à proposer Mon Moment Magique dans 7 pays !

J’ai aussi rapidement décliné ces ateliers en une version pour les femmes.

Comment t’est venue l’idée de monter ce projet ? Quel est ton parcours ?

L’idée est venue directement de mon parcours personnel. Après 11 ans de vie intense dans la communication, j’ai fait une longue pause pour me centrer sur moi, suite à un divorce. Je suis alors tombée dans la marmite du développement personnel, j’y ai entrainé ma grande fille avec moi, j’ai trouvé l’effet absolument magique sur nous 2. J’ai fait le lien avec mes années d’animation en colonies de vacances et centres aérés, j’ai intégré mes nouvelles convictions, mes pratiques bien-être quasi quotidiennes et j’ai imaginé le concept Mon Moment Magique.

Quels sont tes projets pour la suite de l’aventure ?

J’en ai des tonnes ! Tout d’abord, j’anime avec entrain et joie de vivre ma communauté d’ambassadrices et d’ambassadeurs qui s’agrandit chaque jour.

Ensuite, je travaille beaucoup dans la co-création avec ma communauté, depuis cette rentrée nous proposons des ateliers pour les tout petits (4/5 ans), les ados, en duo (1 parent + 1 enfant). Pour la rentrée prochaine, nous allons travailler sur des ateliers dans les écoles, en entreprise, en couple et pour les enfants malades dans les hôpitaux.

Je travaille également sur un jeu de cartes pour les enfants, une sorte d’oracle auquel on pourra jouer seul ou en mode « 7 familles », en collaboration avec 1 amie auteure et 2 illustrateurs magiques.

Et j’ai aussi des projets super secrets ;-)

Quelle est ta routine matinale à toi ?

Je prends systématiquement le temps de bien m’étirer, je bois un jus de citron, j’enchaîne une série de salutations au soleil, et pour finir je pose une intention pour ma journée.

Quels sont tes conseils pour entretenir une routine matinale ?

Accepter qu’elle évolue avec le temps, et ne pas se mettre la pression si un matin on préfère rester au lit (mais pas 2 matins de suite !).

Quelles sont tes astuces pour avoir une vie plus zen, plus épanouie ?

Vivre le job de mes rêves. Prendre soin de moi. M’offrir des mini pauses quand je peux. Faire du sport 2 fois par semaine. Veiller sur mon sommeil (et presque y arriver !), et surtout sur mon alimentation. Faire des câlins à mes enfants. Et pratiquer la gratitude le plus possible.

Parlons motivation. Quels conseils donnes-tu à tes ambassadeurs / ambassadrices quand ils perdent leur motivation ?

Je leur dis que c’est ok, qu’ils vont y arriver, qu’ils ont peut être besoin de temps, de se poser, de prendre soin d’eux, qu’il est important d’être indulgent, doux et bienveillant avec soi-même. J’ajoute que c’est capital d’avoir confiance en soi, d’avoir confiance en l’univers surtout, car l’univers fait toujours bien son job.

Et je leur montre que quand on le veut vraiment, on finit toujours par réussir, quitte à avoir pris un autre chemin et peut être un peu plus de temps !

Quels sont tes objectifs sur goalmap ?

Dormir suffisamment et méditer !

Quelles étaient tes bonnes résolutions pour 2017 ? Où en es-tu ?

Equilibrer ma vie sous toutes ses facettes, j’en suis à 200% de réussite ;-)

My First Marathon

This week, we sat down with Joachim, goalmap’s design co-lead, who just completed his first marathon. He participated in the Munich Marathon, an annual event that attracts 7,000 runners. In total, he completed around 42 kilometers (26 miles) and has set a benchmark for next year’s run.

At goalmap, we don’t only build a platform for people to set, track, and reach their life goals; we also walk the talk and push ourselves to reach our objectives!

So, Joachim, tell us: why this crazy goal? How did it come up?

Well, I am a competitor at heart and I’ve always had in mind to complete a long-distance run. I have been running on a regular basis for the past five years and I thought 2014 was the right year to push things a notch higher and give it a shot. I was really keen to participate in a competition that requires long months of training. You can’t wake up one day and decide you’ll run a marathon in the afternoon and that’s exactly what makes the event so special. It requires commitment and dedication.

I wrote it down on my goals’ list, set a target, and the next day I registered for the Munich Marathon, without really knowing much about it. Sometimes you have to follow your gut feeling!

How did you prepare for it?

The marathon itself is not as hard as people think it is. If you are well prepared, it’s actually a walk-in-the-park… or should I say run! There are several ways to train for it; if you search online, you will find that most coaches and specialized websites suggest a four- to six-month training. I ran 3-4 times a week on average, combining short (c. 5km) and long (up to 27km) distances. I followed a fairly disciplined routine, including nutrition and sleep. I recorded the details my running activity with the Runkeeper’s application, and tracked all the rest with goalmap. It allowed me to analyze my results and see whether or not I was on track. Last but not least, I had a few Bavarian beers at Oktoberfest!

How did it go?

It was fantastic! No cramps, no injuries. I finished it in 4 hours and 45 minutes! I met a few people on the way, and ran with them until the end at a steady pace. What really surprised me was the social dimension of the competition, how people cheer each other up and give you energy. I will never forget the last 300 meters in the Olympiastadion, the same stadium where Marseille won the Champions League in 1993, and where I actually learned how to drive for the first time; it was a great atmosphere!

Joachim looking fairly relaxed!

Congrats! It sounds like you had an awesome time! Any advice for those who want to do the same?

Sure! Here are some general pieces of advice:

  • Set small rules, make a four-month plan with three to four runs a week and stick to it
  • Get two pairs of shoes for your trainings (one from short, one for long distances)
  • Attend yoga classes and do breathing exercises. Breathing well can help a lot
  • Don’t change your habits too much; don’t give up on your social life
  • Plan your nutrition for the race. I got a marathon pack by Overstim – it has all you need, it’s awesome
  • Test all your products before the race
  • Sleep well, eat pasta (having lots of carbs leading up to the race helps with endurance), CTRL+C, CTRL+V…

And here are some tips for race day:

  • For men, put band-aid on your nipples — a long run can chafe your nipples and that really hurts!
  • In the first 20 km, take it easy. We always tend to speed up on D-day (due to high adrenaline)
  • Take a minute to walk every 5 km (refreshment points)
  • Eat every 10 km or so
  • Represent your country; people will cheer you up in your own language if you wear your national football team shirt. Trust me, it makes such a difference!

What about the tools and gear you used?

I won’t comment on running shoes. It’s a personal choice, it all depends on your running style and on your taste. In terms of apps, I used:

  • Runkeeper (to record your runs)
  • goalmap to track and analyze all your activities and goals (check these links to see how goals work – sleeping, eating, drinking)

What’s next?

I am focusing on a musical project until the end of the year. It’s important to bring variety in your life. I also started to train for a potential first triathlon next year.

Good luck with these new endeavors! A last word to inspire others?

If you run, go for it and register for a race! It’s a wonderful experience, and totally worth it! It’s not just a 42.2 km run, it’s a 4-month experience, where you will get to know yourself better, learn how to control your body, recover faster, and discover new horizons.

A World Tour by Bicycle with My Girlfriend

Arthur and Caroline cycling in the Andes – Salta, Argentina

Why this goal? How did it come up?
We knew we wanted to travel for a year after our graduation, but we’re willing to do something special. Traveling by bicycle appeared to be an excellent challenge!

When I first told my family about it, they smiled. I would never do that: too many issues to be solved: I’m not a handyman; how could a girl travel by bike for a year; how could we, as a couple, support the challenge; how could we choose the itinerary; avoid accidents, sicknesses, injuries…

But these doubts didn’t affect our resolution to go for it.

How did it go?
We cycled through Europe, India, South-East Asia, Latin America… There were tough times – but we did it! 12 months, 18 countries, 13 000 kms, 4 hours of cycling per day and many unforgettable adventures. We are so proud of it! We know that it will remain, for the rest of our life, one of the most beautiful experiences we’ll ever live.

Do you have some advice to share with the community?
If you are willing to go on a very long journey:

1/ Collect information. It is essential to start somewhere. We started reading blogs, forums to get advice on bicycle-touring: which equipment? Is it possible for a girl? Which countries are safer? Hundreds of hours reading blogs in order to start getting an idea of what it could look like.
2/ Think positive. Collecting information on the Internet can be quite scary: on forums or blogs, lots of travelers write about their bad moments, their accidents… While it is important to be aware of issues you could face during your trip, you shouldn’t focus on these. Think positive!
3/ Make it social. Once you tell your family/friends that you’ll go, you cannot abandon your project. Moreover, talking to others will make you think about your project, clarify and improve it thanks to their suggestions.
4/ Create a Facebook page and a blog: same as point 3, once we created a Facebook page, we could not back out, we had to do it. Hundreds of people had “liked” our project on FB, it was too late. It was a new source of motivation for us: our project had become public, we had to do it for others, and not only for ourselves.

What about the tools and gear required?
For such an adventure, having reliable equipment is crucial. As many cycle tourers, we bought Ortlieb panniers and a Brooks saddle, both proved to be very solid. We were also happy with our bikes (Decathlon Riverside 7) as we didn’t face major issues. Concerning multimedia equipment, I would recommend taking a very light computer or a tablet, and a small camera. Travel light; you will feel the difference when climbing the Andes ;)

What’s next?
My next goal is to create a blog on tour cycling. Indeed, we noticed during our journey that it was hard to gather information as there is no website that centralizes everything. We hope to develop this as soon as we can. And of course we will go touring whenever we can: Iran, Mongolia, and Colombia are on our wish list.
