The Fix: Katherine Tinsley

The Fix: Katherine Tinsley

My name is: Katherine Tinsley.

I’m known as: A new guest contributor for Live the Process.

My expertise is in: My background is in the editorial space and as an entertainment correspondent.

I stay physically healthy with: I have been loving Pure Barre. It is my new fitness obsession. I used to run cross country, so I love to be able to challenge myself both physically and mentally. I also have been trying to get into the habit of intuitive eating and changing my mindset around diet and exercise. I’ve been working on developing a healthier relationship with fitness, food and my overall health.

I keep my emotions balanced with: Counting my blessings. Every day, I wake up and think about all the things I am grateful for. I try to dedicate time to focus on what I have and not what I don’t. It helps to keep me not just optimistic, but also helps me remember that—even with all that’s happening in the world—I still have things to be thankful for. I also like to stream church and read not just the bible, but various sacred texts such as the Quran and the Pāli Canon. 

I’m intellectually stimulated by: Reading work from my favorite two writers, Aime Cesaire and James Baldwin. I have spent time translating some of their work from French to English and vice versa. Aime Cesaire’s letter to Maurice Thorez represents a powerful moment in francophone history and the Negritude movement. So, I have spent a significant amount of time using it to further my research on postcolonial identities around the world. 

I was recently transformed by: Prior to quarantining, I left New York City to spend some time in the DMV (D.C, Maryland, Virginia), which has always been my second home. As a kid, I would travel there for almost every long weekend. While staying in Silver Springs, MD, I spent some time walking on a nature path and learning from my godmother about spirituality. We are Caribbean, so it’s such a huge part of our culture. Passing down that information is a way we connect to our roots.

In the last six months, the ritual that has become so important for me is:  Journaling. I have been looking into the idea of manifestation and having the power to speak things into existence. So, I’ve been writing about my short-term and long-term goals in order to envision my reality.

Here’s how you can do it: Check out the book, Instructions for Happiness and Success. It’s an interactive self-help book that focuses on manifestation, scripting and journaling. The book teaches you how to journal and script in a way that is beneficial for your future. After that, select a notebook that you can dedicate to journaling and scripting, so you can use the tools you’ve amassed. 

It helps me live my process because: All of these things are contributing to my evolution as a person and helping me to be the best version of myself.
