071: Finding the Time to Improve Your Health
“I have so much to do.”
“I am so stressed.”
“I don’t have time.”
“I am overwhelmed.”
Do any of those phrases sound familiar?
I hear women using these phrases constantly as rational for why they can’t seem to take better care of themselves more consistently.
And believe me…I get it.
There was a time in my life that these phrases dominated nearly every conversation I had with another person. Until… I realized that I was never going to stop feeling these things unless I learned how to manage my time better
These phrases were robbing me of my ability to be proactive about the things I truly wanted to change in my life. And they are robbing you too.
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed and like you never have time aren’t character flaws, they are time management issues and time management issues can be resolved with clarity, focus, and strategy.
This episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast dives deep into how we can stop rationalizing, compromising and negotiating our best intentions, reclaim our time and dedicate it to the things that matter most to us.Listen Now!
056: The Secret to Motivation: Act As If
There are two things that are absolutely essential to any transformation process (yeah, I know… I talk about them a lot because I believe in them THAT MUCH):
2. Consistent Action
Last week, Mary O’Malley and I had a great conversation on the podcast about what it takes to stay awake in your life, so you can change habits that are not serving you into ones that do.
This week’s podcast is all about the second point: consistent action. There is a lot of talk these days about changing our thoughts to change our actions, but what if taking action more consistently is what actually lead to more positive thoughts and beliefs around what is possible?
Check out this episode to hear my experience with taking action around what I wanted to change in my own life despite how I felt or what I believed about those actions.Listen Now!
055: Awareness: The Root of Transformation
The longer I am in the profession of helping women to improve their health, the more I am convinced that improving health boils down to awareness and consistency.
Before we can change anything about our health, we must be aware of the things we are doing to either nourish or deplete our health. But honestly we are living in such a frenetic time, most women are so busy, they are reacting to life with habits that don’t serve their health rather than choosing to respond to life in a healthy fashion. We absolutely must slow down to become more aware and be able to focus.
And there are lots of buzz words linked to awareness: mindfulness, consciousness, being present, staying awake. Whatever you want to call the practice of becoming more aware…awareness is the linchpin to improving our health.
And to help us better understand this topic of staying more present in our lives, I have invited back to the Grace & Grit Podcast my dear friend, Mary O’Malley.Listen Now!
