How to Effectively Use A To-Do List

Your To-Do List Will Never Be Finished, So Stop Trying To Get To The End of It I LOVE lists. I’m not kidding. I have lists EVERYWHERE.

Seriously, the lists are… Continue reading How to Effectively Use A To-Do List

Managing Your Time When You have Nothing But Time

Quarantining has given us nothing but time, but sometimes, too much time can be counterproductive to progress. Learn how you can structure your time to maintain motivation and progress: I’ve always been a scheduler. I have daily agenda books, calendars, to-do lists, and schedules out the wazoo. Seriously. One look in my workbag and you’d… Continue reading Managing Your Time When You have Nothing But Time

Progress, Meet Comfort

Recognizing and Quieting Your Comfort Zone Voice Just six days before beginning self-quarantine, I sat in the back row of an Isagenix Super Saturday – an event designed to educate, motivate, and inspire current and prospective enrollees. The room was full with people like myself, eager to learn about how to grow their business and… Continue reading Progress, Meet Comfort

Challenge Yourself Everyday

Sometimes the day doesn’t go as planned - especially if you’re someone living with chronic pain. And that’s OK. I used to be one who would beat myself up when I didn’t hit my mark for a run - it would ruin the rest of my day. But somewhere along the way, I learned to… Continue reading Challenge Yourself Everyday

My 2019 in Pixels

Lately I've been writing about transforming your life and ways to take the first steps in developing healthier patterns. The first step in that transformation is self-reflection. There are many ways to reflect on your past, and there are many suggestions to organize your thoughts/days/months/years. Last year, I chose to keep track of my days… Continue reading My 2019 in Pixels

Transformation 2020 – Step 4: Setting Intentions

A few months ago, I was listening to The Adult Chair podcast titled The Power of Intentions. In this podcast, Michelle Chalfant described the difference between a resolution and an intention, and immediately I was hooked. We all know that resolutions don’t work – most of the time. If you are part of that lucky… Continue reading Transformation 2020 – Step 4: Setting Intentions

Transformation 2020 – Step 2: Examine Your Values

In July 2009, I was on a plane on my way to Spain. I was running away from another failing relationship, spending money I didn’t really have to spend, and hiding from the truth I would only come to recognize six years later: I needed to change my life. I was passing the time by… Continue reading Transformation 2020 – Step 2: Examine Your Values

Transformation 2020 – Step 1: Self-Reflection

I’m ashamed to report that a majority of my adult life – the time between my high school graduation and my 30th birthday – I didn’t know the power of reflection. I assumed that everything that was happening in my life was a result of things happening TO me, that I had no control. People… Continue reading Transformation 2020 – Step 1: Self-Reflection

What Does 2020 Look Like for You?

Let’s be honest. 2019 was rough. Based on the posts, funny memes, and comments I see as I scroll through FaceBook, most of you will agree. 2020 cannot get here soon enough. For many, midnight on New Year’s Eve ushers in a new beginning, a new year, a new chance at life. If you’re anything… Continue reading What Does 2020 Look Like for You?
