Five ways to get more energy (that you can start today)

Last week we started a conversation about energy. In a recent survey I did out to my community, hundreds of women told me that one of the main issues in their life is lack of energy. And let’s face, many women are just flat out exhausted. Yet we often don’t talk about it. We think we need to be all glossy and looking like we have all of our stuff together, and that doesn’t include talking about just how tired we really are. But the reality is that if you stop to have a real ...

Five real reasons why you lack energy (and what to do about it)

Most of us want more energy. We want to feel more engaged, inspired and alive. Mostly, we just want to have the energy to get through everything on our plate, with some left over for the joyful things we want to do, not just to get through our long list of have to’s. But the reality is, that if you are like many women, energy is one of the things you are desperately in need of. You can feel tired even before you get out of bed in the morning. Even when you have had a decent sleep. And there ...

Choosing your energy amongst the crazy

Everyone I speak with, and probably everyone you speak with, is B U S Y. We all know it. We all feel it. We’re rushing around like crazy, and just trying to do our very best to stay sane. And even those schedules that are meticulously planned to include downtime and space, can still have those periods of madness that can send us, well, mad! Case in point. October for me is one of those months. Last October, I committed to speaking for a valued client at their major annual event. 8 events, ...

The #1 myth that stops you from meditating

You’ve been told to meditate. It will be good for you, they say. It will help you quieten your monkey mind. It will bring you peace and calm and make you all zen inside. It will help you create more space in your life. You will grow to love it. All of that is true. And then they say this: All of your thoughts will disappear from your mind. Say what? This is when your BS antenna goes up. You tried to meditate once or twice. You sat in an awkward cross legged position on the floor. You set ...

Learning to live a simple life

Something interesting has been happening lately. I have been dreaming of living a simple life. Craving it even. And I find myself moving toward it more and more each day. I also know that I’m not alone as I am hearing this more and more from friends and clients as well. Many of us are seeking this kind of quiet change. It’s not necessarily a standard practice, this searching for simple. We all live in such crazily busy times. We glorify busy. How many hours we can work. How little ...

Feeling tired? 10 ways to recover and thrive

  Tiredness. We all feel it. Sometimes we are just tired at the end of a long day. Sometimes we haven’t slept well and struggle to get through our to do list. And sometimes, we feel that kind of world weary tiredness, right down into our bones. The tiredness that makes it hard to fall asleep, to stay asleep, to get the rest you need, to restore your spirit. Most of us have been there. As we move through the busyness of the first part of the year, and hit the change of seasons, I see ...

The question that will set you up for failure….every time

Last week I wrote about the truth of becoming more confident. And the reality is that it’s the small things you do every day, the baby steps, that get you there, not the giant leaps that we have in our minds. Today I want to clear up another myth for you, by debunking a question I hear all of the time. It’s a question that sets you up for failure, and can only lead to you feeling badly about yourself. The question is this: How can I be my best possible self in every moment? You see ...

New Year Love Note #3: Commitment

Welcome to New Year Love Note #3. Hopefully you have checked out #1 on Surrender and #2 on Declare. This week I want to share some thoughts on Commitment. But not commitment to anyone else. Only to yourself. We can surrender and declare all we want, but if we don’t look after ourselves, and I mean really look after ourselves (not just pretend to), then it’s all for nothing. And as someone who has experienced the worst kind of burn out, you can trust me when I say that it’s a ...

It’s time….

It’s coming to the end. The end of the year. End of the projects. End of the meetings, the clients, the runway. It wouldn’t be strange if you were feeling a little overwhelmed. Or over it. Or even just…..flat. Perhaps you have a sense of restlessness. A little uncomfortable in your skin. An itch you can’t scratch. A longing you can’t name. A feeling of unease. Or even just…..well yes, just flat. I’m with you. So are most of my clients. And my ...

November Roundup: Live events, what I’m loving & monthly musings

Hey hey! Hello December. One of my favorite months of the year. My kid is home from school for 8 weeks, I’m wrapping things up with my amazing clients, taking a break from speaking gigs, planning and prepping for 2017 and getting ready for Christmas and my January Byron break. Lot’s of time for family and friends, chilling at the beach, and some fun and restoration.  The work doesn’t really ever stop when you run your own business, but I put the brakes on everything other than writing ...
