299: 5 Habits Keeping You Stuck

Habits are your brain’s energy saving mechanism. When you repeat a pattern often enough, your brain develops a strong neural pathway so you can execute the pattern without having to think. Pretty awesome, right?

Well, until it’s not.

There are patterns you are repeating every day that aren’t really serving the life you said you wanted to live. And when the brain memorizes those patterns, well… you stay stuck!

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I share the 5 habits I seem to coach clients on most often to help them improve their health and unstick their life.

I call the years between 40 and 60 the renovation years.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I share the advice that I believe women in our age bracket need to hear (far beyond cookie-cutter diet and exercise recommendations).

Building a Life Without Sacrificing Your Health

182: Building a Life Without Sacrificing Your Health

The month the theme on the Grace & Grit Podcast is Women’s Health Through the Ages.

Last week I dished out some advice about how to raise our girls with Grace and Grit and, in this week’s episode, I share a few thoughts about how women in their 20’s & 30’s can build a life without sacrificing their health to do so.

Even if you are well past your 30’s, this podcast is a great reminder to all women about the toll that too much stress can take on the human body and how we can help one another to navigate life more gracefully.

Have a listen. Share your thoughts. Better yet… share this with a woman you love.

Raising Girls with Grace & Grit

181: Raising Girls w/ Grace & Grit

How do we raise girls to honor the needs of their body, mind, and soul?
How do we raise girls to develop deep self-respect and self-love?
How do we raise girls to build resilience against “diet culture”?

We lead from the front, of course. Regardless of whether or not we have daughters.

What would a girl learn from you about self-care, self-respect or even self-love if she observed you for a day?
That is a powerful thing to consider if you are someone who recognizes that women are more than a body and deserve more than what the diet culture has offered them.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I explore the challenges girls are facing in today’s culture and how we can show them, by example, what it means to direct yourself with Grace & Grit.
