Healthy Self-Discipline

257: Healthy Self-Discipline

I have worked with clients who struggle to apply any degree of discipline when it comes to their own self-care and I have worked with clients who have applied discipline to the point of self-destruction.

Neither promotes health.

If you want to improve your health, you need a dash of self-discipline but how much you need really depends on what else is happening in your life.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I will help you identify when you might need to dial up the self-discipline in your process and when you might need to dial it down.

Summer presents us with a lot of opportunities to celebrate, travel and enjoy the company of family and friends, which can be oh-so-good for the heart and soul AND a little (or a lot) challenging for women who are trying to improve their relationship with food and alcohol.

The Space Between Grace & Grit

162: The Space Between Grace & Grit

This week’s episode on the Grace & Grit Podcast is the final installment of the Self-Leadership (and why it matters to your health) theme, and I am talking about the two final pillars: self-compassion & self-discipline (aka Grace & Grit).

We need BOTH grace (self-compassion) and grit (self-discipline) to live a healthy, joyous life. The hard part is embracing the quality that doesn’t come as natural to you and not misuse the one that does.

As a health coach, I have seen women manipulate self-love into rationalizing why they shouldn’t have to apply the self-discipline that will help them get happier or healthier. And I have witnessed women use self-discipline to the point of self-destruction because they clearly lack love for themselves.

I am a champion for residing in the space between self-love and self-discipline, which is why I named my company Grace & Grit. One without the other will cage what is possible for your life.

Listen in to this episode to hear more about my thoughts on this and learn a few of my favorite strategies for finding your balance between the two.

039: The Gateway to a Level 10 Life

I am a firm believer that how you start your day is a pretty good indicator of how your day will roll.

A day that begins with intention, clarity, direction, and self-discipline will turn out much differently than a day that ignites with stress, fatigue, and frustration.

Look I get it…you are busy, and getting up 30 minutes to an hour earlier to set yourself straight feels like the hardest thing in the world. But…

What if a powerful morning routine was the gateway for creating the life and level of success you really crave?

Check out episode 39 for more insight on the getting the day started in a way that promotes productivity, creativity and drive.
