4 Delightful Ways to Come Home to Yourself

175: 4 Delightful Ways to Come Home to Yourself

Summer brings back fond childhood memories for many women; a time when we were less concerned about productivity and far more interested in seeking out fun, new adventures and even making new friends.

Most women I coach to improve their health and overall happiness with their life could benefit from an infusion of that childlike spirit.

Play, laughter, adventure, creativity, social connection and nature are nutrients that many women have pushed aside in their adult years because they are things that feel like guilty pleasures.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I remind listeners why these elements are so essential to your health and how to start infusing your life with more of them.

The REAL Secret to Rocking Your Swimwear This Summer (it is not what you think)

173: The REAL Secret to Rocking Your Swimwear This Summer (it is not what you think)

The diet and fitness industries would have you believe that if you want to rock your swimwear (or any “wear”, for that matter), you need a detox, a highly specialized diet or a new exercise routine.

What you really need, I would argue, is to change the way you are thinking about your body.

When you shift your focus from all that is wrong with your body to all that your body is doing awesomely well, not only do you feel better, but you DO better. You take better care of things you appreciate. #truestory

In this episode of the Grace & Grit Podcast, I talk about ways to mend your body image so can spend less time beating yourself up and more time embracing the preciousness of summer.

Best Summer Ever

172: Best Summer Ever

Last summer was NOT my best summer ever.

It was emotionally draining and I committed to way too many work projects, which made me feel like I literally missed the magic of summer. Which, I had a lot of disappointment about.

So, this year I took some time to be intentional about how I move through my summer, so I can experience as much summer magic as possible.

In this episode of the podcast, and all month long, the Grace & Grit Podcast will be dedicated to helping you design and live a summer that nourishes your mind, body, and soul.

I hope you’ll join me as we travel through the next few weeks, so you too can be very intentional about how you live your precious summer days.

If you are like most of the women I work with, you probably feel like summer can be a really hard time to stay on track with the behaviors that bring you closer to your health goals, like eating nourishing foods and staying away from the foods that deplete you.
