Episode 47: Self-Care Collective Round Up: Depression, Skincare, Nutrition, & Fueling Fun in Your Life

Today I want to talk to you about depression and where I was in 2016 along with the habits (and lack of habits) that stuck with me that I still struggle to maintain and create today. I’ll be sharing a little bit more about my depression story along with some things I’ve been doing lately to take care of myself.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • What I learned from my depression and what it felt like to be in it along with what it looks like now on the “other side”

  • The importance of fun and what I plan on making more time for


Episode 46: Do You Need a Wakeup Call?

Near Death Experiences fascinate me, especially the parts where people share how something in them changed and they now have a bigger appreciation for life and their daily actions. After almost choking on a piece of spinach recently, I got to thinking about what it means to have a wakeup call when we really need them most, and what we can do to bring ourselves back to remembering what truly matters and then taking action daily.

in this episode I explore:

  • A few of my own past wakeup call experiences

  • What’s true about death and how we consider it

  • Questions to ask yourself

  • What stalls us from taking action toward change

  • How you can begin to give yourself the wakeup call you might need

Episode 45: 3 Key Components for Getting Back to Simplicity

Ever feel like in an attempt to take better care of yourself you're actually MORE to your plate instead of getting back to the daily things that truly matter for your health and wellness? Let's talk about three ways that you can bring simplicity back to your life to help fuel those goals you really want to accomplish moving forward.

I'll be sharing:

  • What matters most about consistency

  • How to build momentum on a daily basis

  • A look at what you're allowing into your life daily and reminders to take breaks

  • And I'll be giving you a "look" inside my newest creation, the Mindful Productivity Planner

Episode 43: Productivity & Privilege

This episode is real talk. It's time I talk about my own privilege, how that has impacted my success, how privilege, discrimination, racism, etc impacts our ability to make time for self-care. And how blanket positivity statements are more harmful than helpful. Pour yourself a giant cup of coffee and get ready to get real. The doors are opening for discussion...

Episode 42: 4 Ways to Improve Interpersonal Communication Skills & Stop Wasting Time

Truth is we all do things that waste time. Our time, other people's time, and vital time spent on projects, deadlines, and even things we do for fun.

Mindfulness reminds us to be in the moment, to trust in the process and the flow of our work, but if we're not also mindful of the ways in which we are unintentionally sabotaging our time, it can lead to burnout, extended deadlines, and poor time management.

Today's episode is going to involve a bit of tough love. Stay tuned to hear about the things I do that help me keep solid boundaries in both professional and personal communication, tips for staying on task, and ways to increase your interpersonal communication skills.
