How to Get Better Sleep and Relaxation

This year, I am a little obsessed with habits so I’ve decided to try out 12 habits this year and, hopefully, make a bunch of them stick. (If you want to join me, download my Year in Habits worksheet here.) For February, I am working on my current number one pain point: sleep. I have […]

From Perfectionism to Excellence

A bit over a year ago, I realized that I had reached the point where perfectionism wasn’t serving me anymore (you can read about it here)—if it ever had, which I am questioning today. But early last winter, I had no idea that it would be possible for me to get this far. So what has […]

Successful Goal-Setting

When it comes to goals, I have two priorities: I want them to be aligned with my priorities so that they make sense and I always have a reason to work on them, and I want them to be achievable so that I don’t get into a worry cycle that ends up with me feeling frustrated and bad about myself.

The Importance of Habits and Identity in Your Life

Habits matter because they help you become the person you want to be. James Clear If you’ve followed my posts for a while, you may know that I am a huge fan of habits and routines. I know it sounds boring, but actually, the opposite is true, or at least that’s how I feel about […]

Stop Making Excuses!

I’m sure you are familiar with the sentence, “If you want to do something you’ll find a way, if not you’ll find an excuse.” I’ve always found that a pretty rude statement that might be appropriate on the social media of boot camp instructors, but has no place in coaching relationships. I still think so, […]

Micro-Dosing Self-Care

Micro-dosing is a pretty popular concept these days, and so I got to think, how about we applied it to our self-care as well? After all, the reason why we don’t do a lot of things that are good for us is that we feel we don’t have the time, right? I know that’s a […]

Trust your Gut. On Fear and Intuition.

The other day I listened to one of Oprah’s Supersoul Conversations on staying safe, and I realized that most of us do indeed struggle with fear, second-guessing our instincts when we should totally trust our gut and totally accepting it when it only reminds us that we are about to leave our comfort zone.  The […]

Get-S#!t-Done Friday

One of the favorite tools I use to make my life easier is Get-S#!t-Done Friday. It’s comparable to what others may call Power Hour or something along these lines. The idea is that you set some time aside on a certain day to do certain things. For me, that means an hour or so every […]

Talking about Grief, or: The Losses that Define Us

A while ago, at a workshop, I had a conversation with another participant about grief, and it made me think of times when I was going through the same raw experience, the helpful advice I got back then, and what I learned in the process. So I thought, for once I’d share that. This is […]
