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...
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’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...
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.
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...
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...
In order to get where you want to go, to reach those big goals & dreams, you need to know where you are starting. You need to acknowledge yourself, and all the successes and struggles you’ve experienced.
Just like when you're driving somewhere using a GPS, you need a starting point and then a destination in order to get to where you’re going successfully.
Your life is the same way so today we are going to talk about how we can acknowledge, celebrate, and then activate ourselves to move forward in order to get out of that stuck position.
We are going to take a fun and quick assessment to see where you might be out of balance in your life and then we will focus on how to find out what our core values are. Only after this can we start to dream big and then start to move toward those dreams.
Are you ready to get started?
Starting with the...
I decided to tackle this topic mostly because not only have I been experiencing this more lately, but also just about everyone I know.
Over the past few years, a lot of us have changed. Some of us have really been focused on how to really be an authentic version of ourselves and to honor that 100 % of the time.
I've seen this with myself, my clients, and my friends.
I believe the climate of the world around us really has awakened us, made us hop off the hamster wheel of life, and paused for a moment. I mean, we were kinda forced to. Which I believe was a good thing!
The question that has come up is, what the heck am I doing? Why am I doing it? How does this serve me? This is nuts!
A Lot of us have discovered that we are doing things that are not true to us at our deepest level, not aligned with our values at all.
A lot of us spend almost all of our time, our most valuable asset, doing things that don’t light us up inside or...
We all have those times in our lives when we feel stuck, stagnant, and uninspired.
You could feel a bit lost and not know how to move forward. All you do know for sure is you don’t want to stay where you’re at right now.
It could be your home situation, a relationship, your job, or your business. It can be all of the above!
I can relate to this. I think a good part of the reason this happens is that we get too busy doing instead of just being. We get busy. Bust taking care of everything for everyone.
This is definitely more common for women just because of social expectations and traditions.
Some women take care of the home, the kids, their significant other, their parents, all outside appointments, planning family gatherings, etc..
They also work full time while doing this and don’t forget we need to look a certain way, be a certain way and for crying out loud we should be grateful.
Now I’m not saying these pressures don't sometimes haunt men but...
