Shining Bright in High Pressure Situations

This episode is about the beauty of high pressure situations. We’ve all had times when we are under pressure and though it is difficult, what it yields can be beautiful and worth the pain or discomfort. I want to help you think about the benefits you gain from tough situations that in all honesty—we can’t usually avoid.

There’s Still Time | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

As we have entered the last quarter of the year, many experience a change of pace. Some speed up in a rush to get it all done, and some slow down because “it can wait till 2018”. Or maybe you’re one of the fortunate on track types, and are slowing down because everything went according to plan. 🙂

I want to encourage you and remind you there is still time. You can do so much with the last quarter of the year. You’ve learned from experiences and can work well under pressure. You can take advantage of the slowed pace of others, and zoom past to the finished line.

 

Take a listen to my latest podcast as we bring this year to a successful close:

Hey healthy bunnies,

 

How many times have you woken up with not enough sleep, or dread about a challenging project, or to the knowledge that you had way too much to do with not enough time?

Self Care: Let Go of the Guilt | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

I have gotten a lot of messages over the years thanking me for the reminder of self care, all the while telling me it is either not feasible or not realistic for them to put into practice.

I hear women and men of all ages list the things they have to do and who they have to do them for, with not so much as a mention of self.

How do we propose we get all these things done day-in and day-out without taking the time we need to recharge ourselves?

In this latest podcast episode, I explore what self care means and how we can let go of feelings of guilt associated with pushing back from all of our responsibilities and doing what is best for us.

Lacking Motivation

I wish it weren’t true, but sometimes I wake up just not feeling like doing what I need to do. If I wait around for the motivation to come, it usually doesn’t. The only cure is to force myself to start, and once I do I usually get a good rhythm going. This is especially true for exercise. Many have said to me they admire my dedication for being active 5-6 days a week. I honestly don’t always feel like it, and it isn’t always a stellar work out, but I do always get a little something done. I show up. I start.

The look you give when you're about to…. bend down and tie your stupid short laces. 🙄

Maybe this is tougher than usual for you.  You have goals and they feel really, really far away. Another way to push yourself is with your thoughts and your words. What you believe creates what is.

In this episode of the Wonderfully Made podcast, I discuss using your words to manifest your dreams. Take a listen below:

4 Ways to Make Your Period More Bearable | The Wonderfully Made Podcast

Hey healthy bunnies,

Over the last several months I have been doing a lot of research about hormone balance, maintaining healthy weight, using food to manage depression and more. Not so surprisingly, I found from many sources that so much of what happens in our bodies is linked and interconnected. Did you know that your cycle is considered a vital sign? Now I am learning it is very important to pay attention to my cycle not just when I am having my period. And I have also learned there are things I can do to minimize the unfavorable symptoms like mood swings or cramp or breakouts.
