The inner critic. You know the one. Sometimes it's quiet. Oftentimes it shouts form the rooftops... "You're never going to be happy!" "You're not worth it." "Nobody will ever love you if you look like that." "You'll never be good enough." "You're stupid." Sound familiar?? The inner critic, or inner voice, is simply the way in which we speak to ourselves. For some it can be a healthy supportive internal dialogue, for others it can be abusive and even bullying... Where did this
Your body is where you live. It is the thing through which you experience this life and it's constantly conspiring to keep you here on this planet. Your lungs breathe, your heart beats, your neurons are firing, your digestive tract is working... all with no conscious effort on your part! Personally I think that's pretty damn rad!! Yet so many people struggle with a negative body image. With hating the body they live in. With the self loathing that can come along with it all.
In all of my time as a coach and through many conversations, there are a few main questions and challenges that seem to come up again and again when it comes to beginning a solid self care routine. And, no surprise there, the challenges are generally not knowing what to do, not feeling like it's possible to find the space in life, and feeling guilty about it... So let's dig in and have a look at each of these! What to do? From a quick brainstorm, here are 30 Self Care Activi
Let's start by asking, WHAT is self care? If you speak with me often or read my posts, you'll know that I'm a wee bit obsessed with self care! Unfortunately lately this has become a bit of a buzz word or buzz phrase and there is a lot of confusion around what exactly it means... So let's get clear! Self Care is any activity that makes you feel nourished and taken care of. But this is such a broad definition! So won't this encompass a ton of things? YES it does... and that'
Daily affirmations can be a powerful tool in growing and lovingly transforming your body image. So what is an affirmation you may ask? It is a positive sentence that you repeat to yourself on a daily basis. It is something you aspire to achieve or grow into, yet said as if you're already there. Typically written down and kept somewhere you'll see it often (such as taped to your bathroom mirror), affirmations are read out loud to yourself each day. Affirmations are somethi
So what makes you so uniquely broken? This is perhaps a strange yet deeply profound question. It's one I was asked by one of my coaches and that literally changed my life path. This is part 2 of the paradigms that I live and coach by. As a refresher, a paradigm is a guideline. It's a basis for how we operate in daily life and can determine how we deal with and react to things. It is not a rule or a law, simply a suggestion to look at things a different way. Think of it as
Alright ladies and gents, this is a BIG topic! Like seriously, this is huge. There are books, documentaries, tv series, and many people's careers based solely on this one thing. It is not something that can be learned in one day or even properly discussed in this medium, but it is still well worth talking about. Why? Because is affects ALL of us! And because every little bit of positive change makes a difference. Who among us hasn't looked in the mirror at some point in
