Sunday Link Love #18

Spent a day sitting by the lake reading a book and watching my kid fish with the grandparents. This is a reminder to do this more. Absolutely delightful!   How are you this week?   Each week in 2018 I'll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because...

Two Kinds of Happiness – What Do You Choose?

In the study of Positive Psychology -- or the scientific study of what makes life worth living -- there are two kinds of happiness.   The first kind is hedonic happiness. It is focused on increasing pleasure and decreasing/avoiding pain. It focuses on the current...

Sunday Link Love #17

Spring has been showing off here in Sacramento: thunderstorms, rain, hail, temps in the 50s, followed by fog, followed by temps in the mid 80s. Feels super unsettled and WHOA, I've been needing some grounding.   I've been meal planning and cooking a lot this week,...

I started writing with Holly and her Word Gathers again and it is all feelings all the time. And this isn't nearly as scary as it used to be. It takes practice. So I am practicing.   How are you this week?   Each week in 2018 I'll be sending you articles that have...

Why Hire a Coach?

My clients hire me because they have a problem they haven't been able to solve on their own. Sometimes their issue is at work, sometimes at home and sometimes it shows up both places.  Each client had been working on their issue by themselves, sometimes for years,...

Sunday Link Love #13

This week was spent celebrating my and my BFFs birthday eating our way through Portland, reconnecting with my family and recommitting to some life principles. In other words, it was a big, important and meaningful week.   What are you doing to make your life feel big,...

Where Do You Get Your Energy?

Time is finite. We only get 168 hours each week. That's why it is important to understand where you are spending your life hours. Once time is gone, it is gone.   Either you make your priorities fit into your schedule or you don't.   But what about energy?     Energy...

Where Does Your Time Go?

We all have 168 hours a week. You, me, Beyonce - all of us have the exact same amount of time. Yes, Queen B has the 168 hours of a team of people too. But most of the rest of us spend a good deal of that time working, getting ready to work, taking care of our...

Alt Summit was a blast! Getting ready for a conference when the house is freaking out - electricity problems are no joke - and recovering from the flu-lite meant no weekly links.   But I am back! And ready with lots of goodies to share now and again on Sunday as...

My Night Time Self-Care Routine

  My morning routine is non-negotiable. This helps me start my day feeling the way I want to feel: calm, nourished and nurtured.   The morning through afternoon is solid. I feel like things are under control and I'm productive. In short, I feel like this...
