Flexible Pricing 
noun | Flex·i·ble Pric·ing 
Supply and demand pricing for all types of fitness classes that you can book instantly on the MINDBODY app! 


Searching for your next workout? You now have the power to book individually priced classes that work for you (and your wallet). This is what the MINDBODY app calls Flexible Pricing. It’s based on real-time supply and demand—and it’s about to change your workout game!

 



What is supply and demand pricing?

Maybe you’ve heard of it. Airlines, major hotel chains, rideshare services—all examples of industries that can price their offerings based on supply and demand. The Los Angeles Dodgers are knocking it out of the park by utilizing this idea to help sell baseball tickets this season. Major musical acts are leveraging supply and demand (Taylor Swift, U2, to name a few), so they can price concert tickets to reflect and meet market demand. Even Broadway sells tickets to the hottest shows with this method of pricing. 

Whether you’re buying tickets to a sporting event or booking a flight, it’s likely you’re dealing with supply and demand pricing. Hotels offer up-to-the-minute discounts to fill empty rooms; airlines fluctuate pricing based on off-peak fares, or flights booked months in advance. Your rideshare “surges.” Supply and demand pricing is everywhere!

Foundational Steps to Cultivating a Daily Self-love Practice

When you think of self-love what do you think of? Bubble baths, walks on the beach, facemasks, or what? Self-love can mean so many different things but when we think about self-love, we have to acknowledge loving ourselves both on the outside and on the inside. The way that we show ourselves love is one of the most important things we will ever do. 

How do we treat ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What foods are we putting into our bodies? How are we thinking about our overall well-being when practicing self-love?

As self-love defines and redefined itself for you over the years, here are a few foundational tips to think about when easing into your self-love journey.

 

Step 1: Learn to set boundaries

Don’t we love this one? Loving ourselves has a lot to do with the boundaries that we have for ourselves, with others, and for others. Take time to think about your own emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs when setting boundaries that reflect your personal needs. Boundaries don’t have to be big and scary; they are here to remind us that you get to have your lived experience and still have expectations about how you’d like to be treated and what you’d like to feel.

When thinking about your boundaries, ask yourself:

  • How do I feel without having boundaries?
  • What would I like to have boundaries around?
  • Are my boundaries actual boundaries or am I creating walls in my life?
  • How do I plan to uphold my boundaries?
Step 2: Cultivate self-compassion

In a world where perfectionism and curated existences have been rewarded, begin to cultivate compassion for yourself. You are a soul having a human experience and it’s totally okay if things are not perfect. 

Mindfulness exercises such as Breathwork, self-care activities, and self-compassion, all help train the mind, emotions, and even the body’s stress chemicals to be able to deal with undesired situations. Self-compassion means, can you be nice to yourself? Can you find empathy and kindness for yourself in the middle of what feels chaotic, stressful, or unwanted? Self-compassion means that we get to make mistakes, have our plans not work out the way that we wanted, and we still get to celebrate that we are doing the best that we can and it is enough.

When thinking about self-compassion, ask yourself:

  • How do I respond to stressful situations?
  • How hard am I on myself?
  • How do I celebrate myself?
  • How do I show myself kindness?
Step 3: Nourish yourself

In every sense of the word “nourishment”, begin to learn what nourishes you and what depletes you. Nourishment doesn’t just mean food for yourself; it means that whatever you are consuming whether it be media, podcasts, people, energy, information, etc. all impact the way that we think, feel, and experience life.

Nourishing yourself definitely goes right along the lines of having your boundaries intact and practicing self-compassion. 

When thinking about nourishment, ask yourself:

  • How do I nourish my emotional well-being?
  • How do I nourish my mental well-being?
  • How do I nourish my physical well-being?
  • How do I nourish my spiritual well-being?
  • How do I nourish my social well-being?
  • How do I nourish my financial well-being?

That’s it. Those are the foundational steps to cultivating a self-love practice that you can ease into your daily routine. Come back to these questions often, because like anything else, self-love is a practice and it takes effort, time, and intention to maintain.
