Ep. 06: Forgetting to take care of ourselves
Hello everyone!  In this week's episode I talk about how easy it is for us to forget to take care of ourselves whether that is because of how busy we are or because we simply don't do it. That's been me for the past couple of weeks. BUT I've decided to make a deal with myself to try and be better and to actually take action to practice self-care more often.  Find me here!  Want to be a guest? E-mail me!

Ep. 04: Let's talk about grief and loss
Hello everyone! Welcome back and thank you for listening to another episode! This is quite a difficult (and very personal) topic to talk about, but I decided it would be good to share my experience and some advice to anyone out there dealing with a loss right now. Grief is very personal and each person deals with it in a very different way, so don't take my word as the absolute truth! and also, don't judge anyone that's going through it, because everyone deals with it differently :)  You can find me here: Want to be a guest?

Ep. 20: Comparing ourselves to others
Hello everyone! and welcome back for another episode!  In this episode I talked about why I compared (and still do) compared myself to others, what's made me do it and how I'm working towards not doing it anymore (not an easy job, let me tell you).

Ep. 14: Hustle culture & productivity
Hello everyone! Have you ever felt guilty about not being productive? Or not being as productive as you thought you were going to be? Have you ever asked yourself: is it really me that's not being productive or do I have an unhealthy idea of what "productive" means? In this day and age, all we see is people waking up at the crack of dawn, going to the gym, eating a super healthy breakfast, and hustling. All day. Every day. But... is that the true reality? Probably not.  In this episode I talk about what my idea of "being productive" is and how it has changed over this year. We need to remember that we don't live in the same world. Our reality has changed. Therefore, our habits, how we work, and how we "hustle" needs to change too.  Where to find me: Instagram:
