Episode 31: How to create systems to support your week and routines to support YOU!

Episode 31: How to create systems to support your week and routines to support YOU!

September 2, 2019

This week is all about transitioning from Summer to Autumn and how to create some systems and routines to feel better in this new season. Moving out of the long and lazy days of summer and into the more full and often hectic Fall schedule can be intense and often times you can feel rudderless and uncared for as you're up till forever packing lunches, juggling extra-curricular, and work schedules get heavier. Creating systems to support your day to day life and routines to help you feel like you're moving towards your truest self is paramount! In todays episode I talk about the differences between routines and systems, how to create both, and a bit of a woo-woo approach to knowing what routines you need.

Episode 24: How to Fight Better

Episode 24: How to Fight Better

April 7, 2019

Fighting is often talked about in hush-hush terms online and in friend circles. Today I want to pull the veil off, and share about how we fight productively, lovingly, and with the bigger picture in mind...often. How to disagree while finding common ground, more respect for each other, and mutual understanding. These are my practical steps to listen, soften, and fight with less aggression and more understanding.
