We have some house things going on and this week was split between loving up my clients and my house. Our sweet Craftsman bungalow home was built in 1905 and is in need of some TLC.

How are you today?

 

Each week in 2018 I’ll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because they are all about Self-Care and Life Satisfaction.

 

 

100% Guilt-Free Self-Care videos! You can catch them here. Side note – my hair is in quite the evolution.

 

Better Sleep Can Make You Feel Like a Million Bucks. – Seriously. I have some sleep tips in the videos.

 

20 Stylish Sneakers You’ll Wear All Spring – I recently got these and my feet have never been happier.

 

Why You Should Surround Yourself With More Books Than You’ll Ever Have Time to Read – Hooray! I’m off to the library (again).

The low grade fever, one congested nostril, utter exhaustion thing got me this week. I definitely was put to the test to see if I could/would walk my talk and I’m happy to report I did!

 

I stayed home. I rescheduled all my in person appointments so I wouldn’t share my germs with others. I applied cold care protocol. I read a 400+ page novel and am happy to that my symptoms never got worse!

 

How are you feeling these days?

 

Each week in 2018 I’ll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because they are all about Self-Care and Life Satisfaction.

 

 

 

Musings Of A Bereaved Daughter – such a beautiful essay about grief, longing and connection. One of my grief self-care practices is to dedicate a few days a year to my mama. I don’t work, I allow my feelings to be what they are (always evolving) and I even bake a cake or pie to celebrate her birthday.

 

An Interview About Resilience – Listening to this interview I was struck with the thought – “OMG, I think I teach resilience!”. A serious case for self-care.

 

Chocolate Lollipops – continuing bonds after losing her mama over Thanksgiving.

 

What Your Myers Briggs Personality Type Says About Your Sleeping Habits – INFJ is spot on for me. ENFJ is spot on for my husband. What about you?

 

Understanding Grief – One of my biggest motivators for teaching and coaching around self-care is bad/tragic stuff happens every single day. An old friend lost her husband this week, someone else’s college kid never woke up, and self-care helps us be resilient when we need to be – when tragedy strikes.

 

 Why Hire a Life Coach? – Are you ready? Let’s talk!

 

 

Sheryl Sandberg’s book OPTION B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy is an absolute must read.

 

I’d love to know what you are reading,  watching and listening to these days. Tell me all about it!

 

I look forward to seeing you soon!

February is the new January, so HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

Sacramento is having some crazy spring weather – in the 70s – and I am feeling the go, go, go pull of spring. Well, at least until afternoon and my body remembers it is still winter.

 

How are you feeling these days?

 

Each week in 2018 I’ll be sending you articles that have sparked my interest because they are all about Self-Care and Life Satisfaction.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

So many people struggle in January. I did for years. Then I stopped fighting it. We are meant to be resting, hibernating, rejuvenating in January.

 

The animals know it.

 

The trees know it.

 

The flowers know it.

 

If you are exhausted from trying to do all the things because of the new year, I hereby give you permission to stop trying so hard. That can come later, in the spring, when we are supposed to be up and at ’em, bursting with renewed energy because we rested all winter.

 

In order to get that renewed energy, we must first rest.

 

How is your January going?  Did you do everything you set out to do? Or would you like a do-over? Did you know February is the new January?

Hooray! Yippee! And hallelujah!  School is back in session and this introverted mama has her work space back and all the silence she can handle.

 Ate this soup and then had dreams about eating this soup because it was so good – freezer-friendly, vegan, gluten-free and full of vegetables.

 

Why You Need to Try New Things and How to Create A “New Things” Practice – I’m turning 48 this year and that number of new things seems ridiculous so I make my lists shorter than my ever increasing number. A few years ago I cut my age in half (and then rounded up to the next number). This year I am doing 18 in 2018.

 

Are you looking for an absolutely captivating new podcast? I highly recommend Slow Burn: A Podcast About Watergate. So many parallels to our current situation and of course, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” The quote is most likely due to writer and philosopher George Santayana.

How are you? How is your 2018 going so far?

 

We had another week of togetherness because my husband and kid don’t return to school until tomorrow after 16 days home. A majority of the time I felt good because I have been really keeping up with my self-care and we checked off some major stuff off our household project list.

 

But there were times where I needed some serious alone time which wasn’t available. I was so glad to use the best gift from my husband.
