I say it all the time…
“How You Eat is More Important than What Eat”
As you prepare your menu for Thanksgiving, I invite you to also think about how you’re going to eat…
If you eat in a negative state, say you’re angry, stressed, or frustrated, that’s going to have an effect on how your body processes your food. Alternatively, if you prepare your meal with love, sit down and eat in a state of gratitude, that’s going to have a completely different effect on your body, mind, and emotions.
Don’t just take my word for it...think back to your own experiences…
When you’re having a crazy busy day at work and you shove food in your mouth so that you can keep going, do you even really taste your food?
On the other hand, when you go to a really fancy restaurant with your beloved, and you order the most expensive item on the menu, you fully savor every bite, right?
Those are completely different experiences - for your body, mind, and emotions.
I’ve worked with clients who struggled with digestion issues for years, and when they started practicing mindful eating, not only did they enjoy their mealtimes more than they ever did before but their digestion issues also completely resolved!
Check out these ways you can practice mindful eating today and notice the difference for yourself:

Does the thought of the holiday season make you tense up and feel anxious?
If so, you’re not alone…
Between uncomfortable family dinners, meal planning, travel arrangements, AND trying to close out your work year strong, it can all feel like too much.
You end up overindulging in sweet treats, wine, and netflix...all leaving you feeling even more sluggish and down on yourself.
There IS another way…
You CAN get through this holiday season with ease, calm, peace, and even joy.
I’m leading a free 30-minute Workshop tomorrow where you’ll:

I’d say the holiday season is upon us...Halloween just passed, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and the Winter Holiday season after that.
A time of stress for many and joy for others. Or, maybe a combination of stress and joy? (because yes, both can exist at the same time)
As you move into this season, I invite you to pay attention to your body’s signals.
When you think about the holidays, does your jaw clench, neck and shoulders tense up, heart race, and stomach get jumbled up in knots?
Or, do your shoulders relax as holiday songs drift through your mind, heart lightens up, breathing gets easier, and you’re overcome with a sense of peace and joy?
There’s no right or wrong of how you “should” be feeling and how your body “should” be responding right now. I just want you to start to tune in…
You see, your body is always sending you signals. It can be easy, especially during the holiday season, to drown those signals by overworking, overeating, and overdrinking. But, I invite you to try something different this time.
Notice your body’s signals and get curious. What’s your body trying to tell you? That you’re stressed, worried, nervous, happy, or excited?
And then, empowered with this awareness and information, you can make a conscious choice to continue the same pattern of drowning it out with overindulgence, or choose differently this time…
Here are a few ways to manage those hard, uncomfortable signals:
This process of tuning into your body’s signals and choosing to respond differently can be hard. That’s why, in addition to the tips I’ve already shared here, I’ve set aside time in my schedule to chat with you 1-1.
If you want to approach this holiday season differently than you’ve done in the past, armed with tools to flow through the season with grace and ease, then let’s chat.
Just because things feel hard right now, doesn’t mean that you’re a failure. It’s not a reflection of you. Can you acknowledge and honor that maybe this is just a difficult season of life for you?
You can’t hold yourself up to the same expectations of “getting things done” as when things are going smoothly and great.
Life is a constant dance…
...between faith and fear, coming and going, giving and receiving, expanding and contracting.
It’s ok if things feel hard right now. But, please my friend, don’t make it harder on yourself with self-judgement and criticism.
Give yourself grace. Allow yourself to rest. And, know that the things that absolutely need to get done will get done.
And, if you’re looking for more support, let’s chat. I have time set aside on my calendar specifically to chat with you. No pitch, gimmick, or hidden agenda. Just my little way of offering you greater clarity, a space for self-compassion, and practical tools to help you move forward.

We’re a year and a half into this pandemic and, if at some point over this past year and a half, you haven’t felt burnout, then I want YOUR secret!...
The truth is this has been exhausting, draining, and completely nerve-wracking. Mixed messages. Polarizing opinions. Being pushed to your edge at work while navigating school and activities for your kids…
It’s enough to drive the best of us crazy!
But, here’s the thing…
These moments that push you to your edge are here for a reason. There’s always something more to learn, grow, or lean into. These moments force you to dive deeper into living in alignment with what’s most important to you and letting go of the rest.
It can be hard though. It’s hard to let go of things that you once thought were important and open yourself up to the uncertainty of a new way of doing things.
But, there’s also freedom in it…
A freedom of releasing yourself from the push and pull, tug of war of what you actually need to do versus what you think is expected of you. Of being ok with saying “no” to invitations and opportunities that don’t align with you, leaving space open for those “heck yeah” moments and opportunities that make life feel juicy, sweet, and beautiful!...
