Episode 7: Is work-life balance even possible?
It looks different for everyone and it takes time to get “right.” While most of us are striving to feel like we’re doing well in most areas of our lives on a given day, our personal vision for this will look different than everyone else’s. We all have different careers, commitment, families, bodies, priorities, and goals and it will take time to figure out what really works to create that balance so we aren't burning ourselves out. Check out this weeks podcast as we dig into it. Listen to some great tips on creating that work-life balance. Let's hold ourselves to a greater standard of setting an intention, making it known, and giving ourselves grace when things don’t go as we planned, we set ourselves up for a more meaningful life, balanced or otherwise.

Episode 4: You are not SUPER Woman or Man
You cannot do everything, and you shouldn’t try to do everything. We have found ourselves in a society that encourages women & men to try to reach this unattainable goal, and wear it like a badge of honor (or a cape). This doesn’t help us, if anything, it perpetuates jealousy, guilt, depression, and conflict. The way to remove this challenge is to be honest with yourself and to acknowledge that you are not perfect...listen to the podcast to hear more..

Episode 3: Taking your POWER back.
It's time to take back your power! Is this Episode I talk about why sometimes we care more for others than we do for ourselves, which can leave us hopeless and exhausted. Whether you’ve lost your strength to your friends, your partner, or even your family, it’s time to recover your power. Remember that it’s the responsibility of others to take care of themselves, not yours. Reclaiming your POWER will reshape your life and give you the peace you deserve. Hope you enjoy this Episode.
