Dive into my most badass tips for unleashing your health, happiness, and success on the daily.
Can I be honest with you?
I love sharing, and teaching, and coaching health (in all its aspects) to you because of course I want to help you reach your goals.
Of course I want to help you avoid the struggles and roadblocks I faced.
Of course I want to hear your wins and see your successes.
But it's also because teaching makes me feel confident, and powerful, and safe.
When I'm in 'coaching mode' - as I usually am on this blog and in this podcast - there's a wall of protection around...
I wanted to spend the last couple of weeks preparing you to be successful with your new year's resolutions.
But before we launch into the next 12 months of learning and growing together, I wanted to pause and take a look back at 2021, and share with you some of the most important lessons I've learned.
These are the tools, the realizations, the perspective shifts that were born of a year of therapy, a year of researching, and a year of trying a new approach to a lot of areas of my life.
I hope this...
It's 2022. You've decided on the meaningful resolution that's going to be your guiding light for the year, and now comes the scary part... turning that vision into your actual reality.
But how do you do it? Like really do it?
How do you stay motivated when life tries to drag you down?
How do you stay consistent through a whole year of birthdays, holidays, weekends, happy hours, stressors, celebrations, vacations, and everything in between?
How do you navigate...
OK so I know New Years resolutions have gotten a bad rap over the years, especially if they are directed at weight loss goals.
The statics aren't in your favor and you have likely experienced the disappointment of falling off the wagon come mid-February multiple times over.
But I have to be honest, I'm out here rooting for us to bring the new year's resolution back!
It's a fresh start, a new beginning, an opportunity unlike any other throughout the year to reflect on what you really want and make a sweeping...
For years I've said that the negative emotions and experiences we don't process and release get stored in the body. Sometimes as fat, sometimes as illness, sometimes as injury.
It always sounded 'woo woo' when it came out of my mouth, but finally I've discovered a book that scientifically backs up this intuition.
'The Body Keeps the Score' by Bessel Van Der KolK, MD, is one of the most comprehensive books I've ever read on trauma, how it affects the brain and body, and how to heal...
"When you're not used to being confident, confidence feels like arrogance.
When you're used to being passive, assertiveness feels like aggression.
When you're not used to getting your needs met, prioritizing yourself feels selfish. Your comfort zone is not a good benchmark." - @cosmicteaholisticshop
A friend shared this quote with me recently and boy did it hit close to home.
I've been a passive people-pleaser most of my life, and while I've spent years working through that in therapy, my limits have been...
We all know the new years resolution stats: 80% are ditched by February! And because of this, there's a growing skepticism around even setting a resolution.
You also have coaches (myself included) saying we shouldn't wait for a new year to set goals and reach for the things we want in life.
While that may be true, there's an undeniable shift in the air around January 1st. There's the hope of new beginnings, an anticipation of the year to come, and a beautiful projection of what life could look like 365 days...
I was chatting with a girl on a Facebook forum the other day who was half way through her Whole30 journey and ready to throw in the towel. She WAS seeing results, but she was just truly burned out.
She was bored of her meals, she was tired of thinking so hard about her food choices, and she just couldn’t seem to get that spark back. The constant mantra in her head was, ‘ugh, 15 more days of this.’
I think we’ve all been there right? I know I have. And the real problem with being in...
With the kids at home, businesses shutting down, and days and weeks blurring together, a routine may feel hard to come by.
But creating and sticking with a regular routine could be the best medicine amidst the chaos.
Here are 3 approaches to try.
1. Themed Days: Make each day centered around one type of task.
1. Consistently gather information until you can't ignore the facts.
2. Figure out YOUR why. Remember, an object at rest stays at rest. And an object in motion stays in motion. You need your goals to be acted on by an outside force; that's what your why is. But it has to be strong enough and powerful enough to get you moving.
3. Quit 'playing' with the idea. Draw a line in the sand and make the DECISION to change. And do whatever you have to to make that commitment real. Tell it to all your friends, post it on...
