12 Traits of Authentically Kind, Strong Women

A large part of my work is coaching women to get MORE. More happiness, more life, more laughter, more self-love, and more self-acceptance. Allowing them to deepen their connection with themselves and ultimately, become stronger. But what does stronger mean? While it can mean different things for different people, there are 12 traits I almost always consistently see amongst kind, caring, compassionate, strong women…   1. They don’t take things personally Instead they understand that others’ are on their own path and the reason that person is coming off as ...

Hot Yoga, Failure & We’re All Just Human. A Super Short Story.

  Why is it that we push ourselves and push ourselves and don’t allow ourselves the space to fail? The space to grow? I called up one of my best girlfriends the other day, explaining to her how I spent the better half of the day before reminding myself that it’s OK to fail. That I don’t have to be perfect. Because I taught a hot yoga class … and it was horrible. The room was too hot. I went 11 minutes over. I was “yelling.” And people came out ...

The 11 Most Powerful Phrases You Should be Using More

What we tell ourselves shapes our outside world. The problem is most of us aren’t really aware of the things we’re saying to ourselves until we start tuning-in. And then, it’s easy to get freaked out because the things we’re saying are usually pretty gosh-darn harsh. So instead of thinking about what you need to be thinking and saying less, start thinking about what you need to be thinking and saying more. Below you’ll find 11 powerful phrases that’ve helped hundreds of coaching clients and can help you too. More ...

Read This When Your Heart Aches, You Feel Like You’ve Failed & You Feel Like No One Understands (it’ll help)

Pain – the kind where you can’t remember when you last washed your hair, you only leave the house when food becomes necessary to eat, and you wake up every morning with your heart aching deep in your chest – has caused some of the most awesomely miraculous change in my life. Now, if you were to tell me at these times how good my pain would eventually be for me, I would’ve rolled my eyes, wished our conversation was over, and returned to my computer… trying to work. Now ...

What Most Women Don’t Realize & How It’s Blocking Your Health & Happiness

I’ve always had a problem creating healthy boundaries. My tendency is always to say YES. These last couple of years I’ve worked to have that not be the case. To rewrite that script. And luck have it, the other day, my story had the chance to be rewritten. And I realized (front, dead and center) one of the coolest lessons. So cool, in fact, I just had to share it with you. So – the other day – a note popped up on my phone. An acquaintance, someone who I ...

8 Books Every Woman Who Wants More Happiness Should Read

Ever since I was a little girl, I loved to read. In high school, one of my favorite things to do on a weekend morning was to finish the next chapter in whatever addictive chick-lit book I was devouring. Today, while I still love a good juicy read, one of my favorite things to do (especially when I need some nuggets of inspiration) is to pick up a book that connects on a soul level.   Below are 8 of my favorite spiritual, self-help  personal development books. They’ve provided me ...

Trying to Lose Weight? Ask Yourself These 3 Questions

  So often I hear shame, frustration, guilt, anger, resentment, and sometimes a deep sense of hopelessness about food being the enemy from my kind, caring, compassionate clients – and I get it – I’ve been there. It’s not a fun place to be in. In fact, it sucks. But today, I want to ask you to open your mind and be willing to shift your perspective. You with me? Because what I’m about to tell you may be very different from everything you’ve ever been told. But hang with ...

How to Not Let Negative People Suck Your Energy

    After giving a talk, someone asked me how to keep their energetic boundaries. Basically, how to not take on others’ pain, anger, resentment, pessimistic outlook on life, or really, whatever negative mojo is running through them.   This is a key question because when we do take on others’ “stuff,” we’re way more likely to be living in a burnt out, overwhelmed, and disconnected space. And it’s in this space that we ignore our true wants and desires and give into the quick fix, to numb or to ...

How to Get What You Want

  Do you have doubts and fears? Have you ever failed? Has the thought, “Am I good enough?” ever crossed your mind? YES? Good. That means you’re trying. That you’re showing up. That you’re putting yourself out there. That also means that you’re a human being having a human experience. More importantly … it means you’re not alone.   Life is our biggest teacher. I always remind my clients that “the work” really happens in-between our sessions. When the totally unexpected happens. When the uncomfortable occurs. When an important decision ...

The One Thing You Should Do if You’re Trying to Lose Weight

    As early as childhood, we’re taught to focus on the outcome. Go after the main prize. Get that college degree. Score our dream job. Land the perfect partner. Birth the cutest babies. Have the perfect body. Cultivate the best life… As I write this list, I already feel exhausted… We’re repeatedly reinforced to go after “it.” To chase the dream, to meet the expectation. And when one dream comes to fruition, we tackle another. We chase more perfection.   But what would happen, if it wasn’t like this? ...
