Risk Taking


In life as in business, taking risks requires courage. It forces us to face our fears of uncertainty. Stepping out of our comfort zone is an opportunity to improve self-awareness and build new skills. Problem solving, reframing and finding new approaches are the results. Regardless of the outcome, we grow through the process and [...]

Notice Emotions


Noticing when we feel emotional is a significant way to better understand ourselves and allow for better choices. Begin by accepting without judgment what comes up in your body in various situations. Then use this awareness to lead you towards more aligned decisions. When we embrace tears, notice a racing heart or listen to [...]

Killing Procrastination


It is in our nature to choose short term needs over long-term benefits. It may seem that this knocks off more small things from our “to do” list, when in actuality, it’s a delay tactic. Doing this allows us to push off the larger more impactful (aka scarier or more challenging or uncomfortable) items. By [...]

Identify Triggers


We generally feel triggered by things that challenge our core values. This in turn causes us to have dramatic reactions.  In order to alter our responses and come at things more mindfully, we must first identify the triggers. Start with noticing how you feel in your body and the recurring thoughts you have around situations like [...]

Reshape Negativity


As humans, we are wired to learn from negative experiences as a way to keep us safe. Our ancestors needed this to survive. Today, negative thoughts increase stress and decrease happiness. By catching ourselves in these unhelpful patterns, we can start to reshape negativity. Since negative thinking is often habitual, taking note of what [...]

Reserving Your Heart


Our hearts are capable of such incredible greatness. Defining where we want to put our attention and love can be life altering. When we judge ourselves and others, we are (pre)occupying those big beautiful hearts. Only by removing judgements and focusing on our inner value, strengths and qualities, do we allow ourselves to find [...]

These experiences bring to light the richness of our past as well [...]

Meaningful Mistakes


When mistakes happen, we can choose to beat ourselves up, criticize others or we can see it as meaningful. Perhaps what happened was meant to help someone. Perhaps the mistake wasn’t even a real mistake. Maybe it was just what needed to be. We may not see it immediately, but embracing that mistakes (aka [...]

Like the Weather


Understanding that nothing lasts forever allows us to eliminate worry. Realizing that impermanence is the only constant, allows us to meet each moment more calmly. Our lives and relationships are like the weather. They are in a constant state of flux. With a reminder that everything is always changing, even storms, we can overcome [...]
