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!

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’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...
We all know that self-care is important for our well-being, our health, and our happiness. Yet many of us don't take the time to add these practices into our daily lives.
In this special guest blog post, 6 coaches and healers, including myself, share some of our favorite self-care practices that you can start using today. I hope you enjoy!
Let's get started.
One of my favorite most powerful deep-level self-care practices is bringing myself back into the present moment.
When I’m feeling stressed or anxious it's usually coming from a thought or a feeling from the past or a worry about something in the future.
These are two things that don’t exist and we have complete control over how they affect us.
All I do is, as soon as I’m feeling that stressed anxious feeling, take a few deep breaths to ground myself in my body. I acknowledge how I’m feeling and ask myself...
What Standards Do You Use As Your Guide?
When you are doing something in your life whether it be your work, the way you eat, work out, your relationships, or the way you have fun, what do you use as a standard guide to what you do and how you do it?
For example, do you feel you have to put in a certain amount of time to earn a certain amount of money? Or, do you believe that you solve a problem or finish a job and you should get paid? A lot of people believe and a lot of corporations believe you should trade time for money but I think this just creates the opportunity for less than desirable outcomes and unhappy people.
I think we should focus on doing the best possible work in the least amount of time by being intentional with the way we do things.
How about working out? Do you ever limit yourself because you might think or society might think, you’re this old and you can’t do that, or you shouldn’t do that?
I hear this all the time about...
Get Unstuck Series - Learning Your Dreams, Passions, & Purpose
In this next episode of the “Get Unstuck Series” I thought it would be good to talk about how to dream big, and find your passions, & purpose.
What does that even mean?
Speaking from experience, when I was feeling beyond stuck. I mean, I was so freaking stuck I couldn’t even begin to know what I wanted.
I had to start reconnecting with myself. Who was I now, who was I before, what do I want, Am I even allowed to dream big?
I mean I actually used to think, why bother? I was so beaten down that I didn’t even know where to start.
So what I did was I went back. I went back to a time before I was beaten down, when I remember being happy, inspired, and excited about everything in life.
I thought to myself, I need to feel this way again.
I have to, and everyone needs to feel this way.
Don’t try to sell me the line, oh Tina grow up, not everything is fun and...

So let's get started.
The first thing I plan on leaving behind as this year comes to an end is judgment.
Judgment of myself and also, the judgment of other people.
Yes, even people I feel I can judge. Which is basically just my opinion.
You see the one thing I've noticed is that the people of this country and even the world are completely divided right now.
The more I look at this situation the more silly it seems.
I truly believe...
