NO WAY IN HELL I COULD RUN MY LIFE WITHOUT SUPPORT (in all ways)

Bode Sitter – I’m interviewing this week and deciding if I’m ready to send him to pre – school in the fall 😭 (I say I’m deciding because my husband is fine with all of it… more golf days)

House Cleaner – once a month is perfect for us. I think it’s hard for people who don’t work from home to understand that you’re not trying to do laundry, cook or empty the dishwasher when you’re home… ya know… working

Biz Manager – she does all the stuff I don’t like doing like: setting up funnels and auto responders and an actual flow on the backend

Adrenal support supplements – containing ashwaganda, ginseng, holy basil, etc. ahhhhhhh thank you amazing scientific creations from nature

GABA – with the business picking up every year, it’s easy for me to be like “why did I say yes to this?” Even though I love and created all of it! Gaba, with the right vitamins, passionflower and valerian root and I CAN TAKE ON THE WORLD

Chinese Herbs – blood strengthening for vertigo and energy

Chinese Massage – once a week or every two weeks (not covered by insurance and totally worth it) to relieve neck and shoulder pain

Biz Coach – I laugh thinking where I’d be without her… “I’ve never run a business, so…..”

Friends – comical relief, connection and compassion

Family – safe spot to land, comedians, loves of my life

My biz – the women I support are pieces of me. I see myself in all of them, it’s like a mirror of my best and worst features

Oh, and can’t forget: Fitness Instructors, whether I’m in barre or yoga, I’m like, thank you for allowing me to show up and not think while making me sweat.

Then I have the keepin’ it real women I follow on insta. Thanks to them too!

Is it the appropriate time to tell you something extra special and amazing is launching late April? And it’s only 21 days. Massive value. Tons of support.

I’m not good at keeping secrets like new program deets but I’m doing my best, because retreater’s get to hear about it first… so I’ll just keep you waiting (for now, but not for long)…

DON’T QUIT, TAKE A BREAK WHEN YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED


DON’T QUIT, TAKE A BREAK WHEN YOU FEEL OVERWHELMED

Just returned home from a bachelorette party…I’ll be honest, the late nights, drinking more than my non – existent drinking, no sleep, activity after activity…all the things I used to do on the weekends as a twenty something took a toll this morning as a thirty something.

Before kid: sleep two days and back to action.

Now…completely different ballgame.

I’m writing to you as it snows heavily outside the window and my husband sits next to me reading a book. I asked him if he could turn the TV off, so I could focus. Also, because I’m propped up against a tennis ball on my shoulder blade because my neck is stiff (too many head whips).

I started to tell him about the Break Free Masterminder‘s training on commitment and how it’s the thing I struggle with the most. Who am I to teach? But almost every goal I’ve set for myself, I’ve hit. I just forgot and needed someone loving to remind me.

90 days with private clients is like the snap of a finger. I’ve been coaching this program for so long, it’s easy now. Clients get fast results that last a lifetime:

***Tara lost 23 pounds and stopped having to take laxatives for chronic diarrhea (first time she’s been off them in 6 years and we did that in less than 90 days). If that’s not a win…

***Anne’s marriage blew up in the best way and her and her husband started couple’s counseling, their marriage is deep and expansive. OH and she’s starting her own business, a superfood coffee company. Can’t wait to become a customer.

***Jenna lost 25+ pounds and continues to be a fitness bad ass, I watch her going to workout classes on her insta stories. She’ll be with us at the Activate Your Gifts Retreat in April, her second Fearful to Fit retreat.

6 month mastermind is like, holy shit, there is so much to do between teaching weekly trainings that come with handouts, small group coaching sessions, 3 in person meetings and bonus guides along the way.

And the doors are open for 3 more women to join THIS MONTH, so there’s on-boarding and getting them set up in the membership site, introducing them to the group, etc.

All of this is happening while our babysitter moved and snowmaggedon hit.

It’s not like I’m crazy overwhelmed, I’m just tired today.

Obviously, dancing until 3:00am in snow boots will do that to you.

But the show must go on.

So, my gift to you is this: do not quit, take a break.

Stay committed to your goals and fiercely protect them.

It’s worth it and hey, maybe I create a year – long program in 2020. WHO KNOWS?!

THIS IS WHY YOU OVERREACT…

So I’m getting ready to create the next Break Free Mastermind training and the lesson is about stress and overwhelm.

As a Certified Happiness Life Coach, I’ve learned a thing or two about the brain, habits and wires that are created from experiences and how to change pathways.

Overreacting is your body’s response to the things going on in your life or in your mind that you feel are stressful. We have wires that connect to stress. Experiences connect us to joy or stress wires. The more stress you have, different things build on each other and it creates chronic stress effect.

  • Noise
  • Chemicals
  • Food
  • People
  • Job
  • School
  • Things

Stress builds up. The more stress we have in our lives, the closer we get to the edge of our emotional cliff. One small thing happens – huge reaction (close to cliff). Find a way to reduce the stress. Stress is caused because of patterns and wires in our brain that connect to experiences in our life to feeling bad. Rewire stress to bring more joy.


3 ways to experience joy, have less stress and to literally rewire your brain


1. Stress Avoidance:

  • Negative coping strategies: substance abuse, love/sex/shopping addiction, ocd social media checks – we avoid things we should be doing and this causes more stress.
  • Positive: people, actions, behaviors, things, places that stress me out. I’m aware of them and plan my life accordingly to not come in contact with those things and avoid those things, I reduce stress. #boundaries #people #situations
  • Consciously choose a way to give yourself a productive break: do something you love, go for a walk, monitor your own thoughts, you have the power to choose.


2. Give yourself a joy boost:

  • Creating more pathways of joy, if you keep using these, your brain creates a sheath around it and it gets strong. More experiences of joy – you’ll create very strong connections of joy.
  • Stress starts to weaken.

Pay attention to your breath + hold your body at one – stand up straight, head up, shoulders back, hands open, smiling (mountain pose) tells your brain you’re supposed to feel good+ think about something that brings pleasure to you: thinking about something you love like walking through a field of flowers

Create 5 of your own joy boosts.


3. Retrain the pathway.

Choose something that triggers a bad memory. Imagine the thing. Allow it to bring up the negative association. Pick something that you’re going to replace it with, must be something that’s going to bring you joy.

HERE’S HOW:

Imagine the trigger —> switch to think about the joyful thing —> do it 10 times every day for several days —> you’re associating this bad memory with the joyful thing

There you have it, the quickest way to stop overreacting, plus it doesn’t cost a thing, just your mindfulness.

If you’re ready to reduce the overwhelm, break free of emotional roadblocks and start living your most desired life, apply here.
