Episode #41 // Your Body Is Not Your Masterpiece, Your Life Is

When I was young girl I felt short and chubby. I felt awkward and not very athletic. I recall noticing the girls that were pretty. Noticed their beautiful hair.

Episode #38 // Holiday Reboot: Stress-Less Guided Visualization Exercise

The holidays can be filled with contradiction; joy and overwhelm, abundance and clutter, love and frustration, harmony and reactivity, peace and resentment. Although we may not realize, we have a choice to choose nourishing feelings and reactions over those that leave us feeling stressed out. One of the best ways I know to increase the [...]

Episode #35 // Do You Exercise Self Compassion?

Welcome to The Full Life! I’ve been on the horn lately about getting good at Self Compassion. For many, it’s the soft side of a more critical conversation we have with ourselves when we don’t measure up. “Good heavens, don’t be kind to yourself! You’ll never do better!” is more the norm. There is loads [...]

Episode #33 // Busy is a Disease of Perception

I’m always open to chatting about busy; it seems everyone else is, too. Is epidemic too strong a word to describe the extent to which ‘busy’ is impacting our health, our happiness, and the quality of our relationships? I don’t think so. It really hit home recently when I read these words from Dr. Suzanne [...]

Episode #31 // Making Each Day Matter with Author, Cathy Anello

At one time or another we’ve probably all contemplated “would I do this if I only had 1 more day of life”. For my guest, Cathy Anello, this became much more than a contemplation, at a very difficult time in her life. It became a way of healing, learning to love her life again and [...]

Episode #30 // When We Shift, the World Shifts with Us: Kristen Noel, Editor-in-Chief Best Self Magazine

Navigating information overload on the www can be draining to say the least. I bookmark, subscribe and frequent the outlets that consistently provide the voice of positive thought-leaders and those that feed my intellect as well as my requirement for “all things inspiring and easy on the eyes”. This is why I was so excited [...]
