I don’t talk a lot about food a lot when I’m talking about deep-level self care but it is an important part of self care and also about choosing yourself.
When we eat healthy, fresh, whole foods, then in turn we feel good, we have energy, and it supports our long-term health.
When we eat processed crap 0% of the time, we don’t usually feel great but also this habit will have long-term effects on your health you might not see until middle age.
Let me tell you a little FACT. When you reach middle age, you don’t feel old. I mean I feel the same mentally as I did when I was younger so I kinda want my body to feel good too.
Making some really small shifts in your mindset and lifestyle will help with this.
Some of you might not know this about me but I started off as a holistic health coach and then I got my certification in culinary nutrition...
It's not really about NOT being productive. It's more about not being defined by whether your productive "WORTHY" person as defined by society.
I think we're all getting sick of this definition.
I love being productive, as long as I'm being productive in the things I want to do, things I want to spend my time doing.
I want to be doing things that give me purpose and help myself and others.
Today is about learning to check in with yourself a couple of times a day and allowing yourself to stop your production line, or as I like to say, hop off of the hamster wheel.
When you get so busy doing, you fail to check in with yourself to see how you're feeling. If you feel like your soul has been sucked from your body, then heads up, it has, and this is your wake-up call to make some changes.
Now, I know, most of you will say, we have to work, and I have to pay my bills.
This is true, and I understand this as much as...
I had a thought this morning after and great night's sleep and some morning journaling and meditation that I wanted to start to shift my focus away from the Live With Purpose Series and move into Choosing You.
How to step into YOUR power and start choosing yourself on the daily so you can show up in your life as the best version of yourself.
Today I’ll talk about how you can start doing this every day.
You know I encourage you to take have big goals and dreams but to take small consistent steps and keep moving forward.
Well, this is no different. Choosing to support yourself, your health, your beliefs, and your energy, and protecting that like your life depends on it is the DEEPEST level of self-care.
It’s creating and maintaining those powerful healthy boundaries and treating yourself with the same level of support you give your partner, your kids, and your best friend.
I recently saw a creator on Tik Tok (No, I don’t know her name but obviously, she is awesome,...
One of my favorite things to talk about is decluttering and some of the amazing benefits that come from it.
You might think, what does this have to do with living with purpose?
Let’s talk about that.
When you create space in your life, whether it be physical space or mental space, you automatically make room for all the new things you’ve been trying to manifest into your life.
If you’ve been trying to bring something into your life for a long time, physical or mental if there is no space or time for it, then how can it come in? It literally has nowhere to go.
In this episode of the SASC podcast, we will talk about how decluttering creates space and time for you to live an amazing life.

How many times can you remember wishing, hoping, and wanting for something in your life and it just doesn’t come? So frustrating. Then you...
Why Self-Care Is NOT Selfish
One of the things that I see day after day in my life and business is professional, driven women who feel guilty giving themselves any self-care at all even at substandard levels.
I believe this stems from the way the majority of us are raised from birth to always care for and make someone else happy before ourselves. We are expected to take the role of caregiver even if we work full-time, and or have a business. Not to mention, we are sometimes expected to take the brunt of the household chores as well.
This my friend is a heavy load to take on and is NOT sustainable without repercussions on our health.
The big part of the problem is convincing these amazing, smart, capable, and powerful women that they need to practice self-care daily and it is NOT selfish.
They need to go against society's unreasonable and might I say bullshit expectations of us to do everything, be everything, and look good doing it.
They need to...
How Can I do More In Less Time(Without The Overwhelm)
It’s what a lot of people want, I know I do.
I’m always looking for ways to be more intentional about my time because I know it’s my most precious resource.
I don’t want to waste time on things I don’t really love doing. I want to do the things I love, the things that make me feel like I’m in flow.
Today I’m going to share with you some of the things that have worked for me and my clients when it comes to what I call “Time Expansion”, creating more time and space for the things you love and getting more done in less time!
Want to listen to the podcast version of this blog? Head Over >>HERE<<
Know what’s important - You can’t really be intentional with your time unless you know what’s important to you. We spend a lot of time in autopilot, going through the motions. We sometimes aren’t even paying attention to the...
I wanted to start a new series on the Soul Aligned Self Care News that shares other coaches' and healers' views of how they use self-care in their lives or with their clients.
I think it’s important to have different points of view from different types of coaches.
My goal is to have coaches and healers who work differently than I do in order for you to have the most beneficial and expansive experience when you spend time in the SASC Community.
This is our second Group Post!
This week we are joined by 3 other amazing coaches, 4including myself.
I hope you find this helpful to you in your life.
Let’s get into it!
When I teach and use self-care practices in my life I always refer to it as Deep-Level Self-Care.
The reason I do this is that for me it's not only about some of the more surface-level practices like a hot bubble bath or getting my nails done with friends. Also very important.
I’ve been getting this question a lot lately and I’m always struggling to do this myself so I thought it would be a great topic to talk about today.
Why is it so hard to keep yourself in the present moment?
If you're living in the past you're reliving old things that happened and this can show up as depression. When you're living in the future you're worrying and anxious about what’s to be, and this can show up as anxiety. You worry about something that hasn't happened yet. This is where I spend a lot of my time.
Being in the present moment is the only place where you can have peace and feel happy.
This is where your happy spot is.
You have complete control of how you want to respond to your present moment. You get to decide to just be happy.
The past is done and doesn’t exist anymore. Leave it there.
Your future has yet to be determined.
You can have a powerful effect on your future by how you decide to feel and be in your...
3 Mindset Shifts To Get Your Power Back
One of my most important passions is helping a driven woman like you make self-care a daily habit.
The reason this is so important to me is that I don’t want anyone to experience the level of burnout I experienced in my life.
By making daily self-care a norm, you can keep overwhelm and burnout out of your experience and still be driven and successful!
I’m going to share with you 3 mindset shifts to make to start thinking about today.
1. When You practice self-care it gives to the power to put your best self into the world.
It is a common belief that self-care is just selfish and it should only be done when you have extra time or maybe after you worked yourself to death.
This is so untrue.
Think about the person you put forward when you're not rested.
You can be cranky, don’t have a clear mind to make good...
Continuing on with the Get Unstuck Series I want to add to the creation of your big dreams and goals.
You see I believe that you can have greater success and also faster success by really digging deep and learning what your “WHY” is.
Your “WHY” is the reason this big goal or dream is important to you.
When you set a big dream or goal that might seem hard, heck, it might seem impossible, you need to know why it’s important to you in order to stay in it for the long haul.
You see, sometimes you need to take many small steps to reach a big goal and it can get hard sometimes, challenging, and you may even have some setbacks.
You can sometimes get to a point where you feel defeated, almost like you’ll never get there.
