Ep. 4.4 Self-Care for Mental Health - Revisited

The topic of mental health is being talked about more than ever. The good news is that this means more solutions are being offered and the shame around the topic is diminishing.

The bad news is that this means mental health struggles are more of an issue than ever. And if you don't deal with it yourself, you know someone who does.

I was diagnosed with clinical depression in my early teens, and I've been on a healing journey with it ever since, with my own mental health and with helping my loved ones and clients with it, as well.

This week, I revamp a podcast episode I recorded a while back. I reconfigured it a bit, added in some new thoughts, and provide a Mental Health Checklist guide for you.

Take a listen as I share:

  • my personal journey with depression

  • how to become friends with your mental health issues

  • how to use your struggles as important warning signs

  • how to create a mental health checklist to ease your triggers

  • what your loved ones struggling with it really need from you right now

  • why your own health is the best way to help the ones you love

Ep. 4.3 Realign Yourself with Yourself

Do you ever wonder how you got to where you are in life? Overwhelmed. Tired. So out of touch with yourself and your values.

Or maybe how your day to day work and lifestyle got so out of alignment with what you actually want?
It happens. We change. Our situations change. But sometimes not all of ourselves catch up and we end up feeling off, depleted, and unfulfilled.

In this episode, I share my recent experience with getting out of alignment and what I did restore myself back into place. I also share how you can create your own version of this process to help you embrace and move forward with who you are now in every area of life.

Ep. 4.1 Breaking the Twitch with Anthony Ongaro

How often to do you check your phone without thinking about it? Have you ever reached for just a handful of popcorn and before you know it, the whole bag is gone?

Our everyday, mindless habits make us who we are, and if we don't stop and break this "twich" we can end up living a life totally out of alignment of who we want to be.

So to help us take a deeper look at these habits, and to kick of Season 4 of the podcast, I have Anthony Ongaro from Break the Twitch on for a joint conversation and creating intentional habits.

We share our individual origin stories for how we've come to preach what we practice and how to break the mindless twitch of habits that don't align with who we are. We dig into how to turn your personal growth and life lessons into a tangible practice, we deep dive into how to turn up the volume on your own inner wisdom, we share the power of continuing to begin again, and we even share what we would do if we knew we would die tomorrow.

It's such a full and fun and valuable conversation, and I know you will get a lot out of it.

Decluttering, simplifying, intentional living. All sounds like a great idea, right, but it can also seem daunting and overwhelming. Especially if you share a home with a partner and even more so with children.

Luckily I’ve got best-selling author Joshua Becker from Becoming Minimalist on the podcast to help give us some inspiration and step-by-step guidance on how to jump on the decluttering train this Spring.

Take a listen as we talk about how to simplify as a family and how that can bond you together, what to do when simplifying gets hard and emotional, how decluttering can make space for what really matters like our faith and real connection with our loved ones, and so much more.

Ep. 3.1 Cait Flanders on Money Healing + Being a Mindful Consumer

How would your life be different if you had a healthier relationship with money? What if you were more intentional about what you brought into your life? As we all recover, especially financially, from the holidays, now is the perfect time to do a bit of healing around money and our habits moving forward.

We talk about why money conversations are hard, how to avoid the money shame and defensiveness, how to celebrate money wins, what being a mindful consumer is and how to do it, the deep work that happens after you change negative habits, the importance of getting outside and connecting with nature, and more.
