#97 Setting Your Kids Up for a Happy Future

Listen on your favorite podcasting app:

Much of the way we present the future to our kids is based on their past. And of course they don’t have much of a past to draw on.

We show them what they can do in the future through too many filters.

What have you done?
What did you like?

And then, of the ones remaining we ask…which ones were you good at?

Then we offer them their possibilities based on what is currently possible.

In this episode I’m going to show you how I talk to my kids about what’s possible.

Oh and I’m also sharing some of the coolest lessons I learned from competing in a fitness competition back in college.


#96 The First Step To Making Friends with Your Feelings

managing emotions

Listen on your favorite podcasting app:

Many women ask me… How do I slow down my reaction in the middle of a high emotion situation?


How can I just slow down and identify my thoughts when so much is going on?
And I tell them.. most the time you can’t.

A lot of the work we do happens outside of the chaos. It happens at night when you write out your thought download or do a worksheet.
Or it happens in our coaching sessions when I help you apply the tools to your situation directly.

Really the tool we use in the middle of the chaos looks a lot like making friends with your feelings or processing your emotions.

This is where we learn to break the compulsion for certain behaviors by sitting with an emotion until our body self regulates.

It’s a powerful tool, and I’ve added a self paced course all about it to my upcoming coaching program, “SHIFT YOUR FEELINGS”.
