You are a Star

Did you ever dream of being famous? I sure did. I used to watch Star Search and those talent shows (yes, I’m showing my age here… I like to think of it as maturity). I daydreamed about singing on stage with a fancy costume, hair, and makeup. Everyone would know my name. Then I grew …

Honey Child get off that merry-go-round!

Do you wonder if you can hate and shame yourself into doing or not doing something? I used to get disgusted with my self-sabotage. I’d plan to “be good” and eat a certain way, exercise, clean my closet, whatever, and then I’d inevitably end up doing something else. Then I would go through a cycle …

Unicorns and Yetis

If you’ve been reading here for a while, I thank you – I appreciate your interest and loyalty! I posted during the holidays about putting one foot in front of the other.

The Four Henchmen of the Emotional Apocalypse

Last week we talked about accessing your future self to gain knowledge, insight and inspiration. When we can picture clearly how we’ll look, feel, and think in the future – we know what thoughts will get us where we want to be. Then we come back to the present. And our current reality. So what …

You are getting very sleepy… but not from my review of Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, PhD

Let me first say that YOU NEED THIS BOOK. Here’s a link to it. You’re welcome. I loved this book despite its meaty depth, the points hit home and pushed me to write my first book review since, well, probably my last 5th grade book report? Why We Sleep is a book by Matthew Walker, …

The Future You

Let’s talk today about acting as if you’ve already changed. Picture your future self. Does he/she remind you of someone you already know and may admire? Your future self is successful in whenever habit or lifestyle change you’re trying to make currently. Maybe it’s eating less junk food, moving more purposefully, drinking less soda or …

Making Changes

We all have a comfort zone. Things that we like to do, ways we like to do things. However then do we ever change? We step outside of our comfort zone. I’ve noticed that when my desire to do something outweighs my comfort level, I tend to push myself forward no matter what. When I’m …
