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 ...

Feeling a little frazzled? This may help.

There’s been some pretty crazy energy floating around in recent weeks. Of course, there was the US election which sent many of us into emotional meltdown. It’s still a sensitive topic and will be for a long time to come. I tried to make sense of it in this piece on Women’s Agenda, which might help if you are still reeling. Then there was the full moon last week, with the moon being closest to earth since about 1948. As the ocean can shift our energy as easily as it shifts the ...

Inside my 60 day cleanse…

Well I did it. The most important thing you have to do when you want to make a big change in your life: I decided.  This is no small thing. We all know what it’s like to try and change something – to stop smoking, curb your shopping habit, quit working so late, get off your devices, or the big one for a lot of us, to eat healthier and lose weight. Change is hard. In fact in most cases it can kind of suck. One of the reason our changes fail more often than they succeed is because ...

Your body doesn’t lie

That knot in your stomach as you walk into the meeting. The clenching of your teeth as you fight back the words you really want to say. The throbbing in your head as you think about your workload. The churning in your gut when that friend calls who you really just don’t want to talk to. You can’t put your finger on it. You can’t rationalize it. It doesn’t really make sense. But your body knows.  And your body doesn’t lie. Those migraines. The upset stomach. The ...
