Ep. 105: Change Your Life through Journaling
If you have been listening for awhile, you have heard me talk about the importance of journaling.  I have been journaling daily for a few years now, and it has really changed my life.  I wanted to dive in and tell you in detail about how I journal exactly, because I came to the realization that I never really explained the type of journaling that I do! See, journaling can be intimidating, even to me.  And just so you know, when I write in a journal, I am not writing on a blank page.  Oh no, now THAT would be intimidating.  I keep a blank journal on me at all times, especially at work, but that is for jotting down the millions of thoughts and ideas that run through my mind all day.  I think often people like the idea of journaling, but really don’t know where to begin. In today's episode, I talk about the new journal created for busy people or for anyone who sees the value in journaling, but has been intimidated by staring at a blank page.  Look no further, and watch your life change with my brand new Create the Awesome Journal!

Ep. 103: The Lazy Girl's Guide to Losing Weight
Today I want to talk about how I lost 7 pounds over the last 2 and a half weeks. It is a very big deal that I did this.  Here’s why: I am the type of person who does not like to work out.  I don’t like diets.  I love bar food, fried food, homemade baked goods and so much more food that is super bad for you.  I love going out to eat. I wonder if any of these character traits resonate with you?  If so, I bet you are wondering how I did it (and I kept it off and I am still losing).  Listen to this episode to see what I did.

In this episode, I talk about creating the “let’s see what happens” mindset, especially since I have had my life change so much lately that all I can do is change my mindset! I think this mindset can apply to a lot of the transitions that we are all facing right now.  I am pretty sure you will be able to apply this mindset to something that is going on in your life.  Listen in about how this mindset has helped me through some major transitions.

Ep. 101: Tips that You Absolutely Need for Getting Ready to Go Back to School
It is back to school season, and I really hope I can keep up with the podcast!  I have no intention of not doing it weekly, but I am feeling a little anxious about school starting just like I do every year, but there is added stress with all of the changes due to the corona virus, and that is what I want to talk about today. If this is your first time listening, I am a mom and a teacher.  I have been teaching 5th grade for most of my 23 years.  I have a son going into college, a daughter who is in high school, and my youngest is going into 3rd grade.  In addition, my husband’s boys are going into junior high and high school.  Come the end of August and early September, many households, like ours,  will change and hopefully for the better.

Ep. 100: How to Live with Someone Who Has COVID: A Survival Guide
Last week I talked about how I was regulating my 8 year old’s ipad usage, and wouldn’t you know it, as soon as we started to get a grip on things, 2 people in my family got COVID.  I wouldn’t normally want to talk about it because I know you get enough  information about the coronavirus from your own news, but I was thinking maybe you would be interested in hearing about it first hand from someone who was living with someone who had it. I can tell you, it isn’t completely like what you are hearing on the news.  It has also been eye opening for me as well.  I hope that no one in your family gets it, but if they do, I will be sharing with you how we dealt with it with much success.  No one else in the house caught it.

Ep. 98: Steps to Prepare Your Child for Wearing a Mask in School
There are so many questions about what school is  going to look like in the fall.  It sounds like most schools will have the option to go back.  If that is the case, one common thing I am hearing is that the students and staff will definitely need to wear a mask. No matter what your opinion is about the masks, the students will be required to wear them in order to enter the school building.  Here’s the thing, I know there are some people out there that do not like the masks.  Honestly, I don’t care much for them either, but here is my plea, as a teacher:  Please encourage your child to wear a mask.  Start now!  In this episode, I am going to talk about why it is important and how to go about encouraging your child.

Ep. 96: Learn How to Create and Play with Lizzie LaRock
I like to consider myself a pretty positive person, and I, for the record saw a ton of positive things during the lockdown, but I too, got sucked into feeling kind of blue.  In Ohio, when this all went down, we were literally quarantined.  The weather was bad, everything was pretty much closed and we were afraid to go anywhere.  I am so thankful that things are starting to open up!  Then, once things started to get a little bit better, we had the riots and all the horrible things that went with that.   When I was really starting to get down in the dumps, I discovered photographer/writer/positivity psychology based coachLizzie LaRock.

Ep: 95 Combating Racism through Educating and Not Shaming
Honestly, I don’t really enjoy talking about racism.  It’s a heated, emotional and personal topic for me, but  I’m going to do it in a hopefully light hearted nature.  I have this need to educate and not shame, and I’m concerned that if I don’t talk about it, the nagging feeling just won’t go away! None of us are perfect.  None of us know everything.  I think we can all agree on that.  And I think many of us can agree that we don’t really like being divided.  I know I don’t.  I don’t really know why we are anyway.  I mean, this is supposed to be the United  States.  I cannot for the life of me wrap my head around the fact that we can’t still be friends and disagree. In this episode, I make the attempt to combat many difficult issues in our nation currently through a little humor, educating and NOT shaming.

I have lots of messes all around me.  I have about 5000 emails I need to delete.  I have a box (it is pretty, I should mention, from 31) full of papers that should probably be filed.  I also used to have sticky notes and to do lists all over the place.  I am more organized than I used to be, but I definitely have a long way to go.  My problem is that normally I am flying by the seat of my pants.  If you can relate, I am about to change your life!

Ep. 92: A Simple Thing You Can Do to Get More Organized
This past week I went to visit a friend who works for the Apple Store.  I needed some help with some tech stuff, and she got a glimpse of my desktop screen.  I thought she might have a panic attack!  I am very aware of the mess.  Literally, every time I take a screenshot, it lands on my desktop.  Downloads?  To the desktop they go.  Literally, the icons were overlapping each other and I couldn’t find anything.  It was bad. I turned to Pinterest like I do for most of my struggles and I found the most wonderful solution!  Pre-made, desktop wallpapers that are FREE!  Listen in for details!

Ep. 91: Creating Positive "What If" Statements
Today, I want to talk about the "what ifs" in life.  I used to say "what if" all the time.  For example, when starting this podcast, I had so many what ifs. Starting a podcast is so out of my comfort zone.  I felt a constant nagging feeling to start one, but I kept saying, what if I don’t have time?  What if no one listens?  What if people think it’s stupid?  I could keep going.  One thing  I never asked myself is "What if I’m a success?  What if I have lots of listeners?  What if no one hates it?"

So today, I want to talk about getting a positive mindset.  I should start off by saying that this is not always easy for some.  And I can say this due to experience.  People who know me well know that life has not always been awesomeness this and awesomeness that for me.  I have had my struggles just like everyone else.  I still do, but now, with a positive mindset, I look at struggles more as challenges that I will overcome. Creating a positive mindset can take work.  Lots of work.  I had to claw my way out of a very deep and dark hole to get where I am today.  And I am still working on me.  Everyday.

Ep. 57: How I Became a Morning Person
I have never been a morning person ever in my life.  You would think that once I had kids, I would adjust and get up a little earlier so we could all get out the door gracefully.  I am your typical, exhausted, working mom.  I will lay in bed until the last possible moment, even if it means being stressed and rushing.  This has never worked for me.  My oldest son is now in his senior year of high school, so for his entire school career, we have barely gotten out the door unscathed.  I finally decided that it is time for me to get my act together.  I've had enough. If you are trying desperately to have a better morning routine, this is definitely the episode for you!  I made the transition!  I broke the habit, and I am super happy that I did!   It's hard to become a morning person when you have been a night owl for your entire life. In this episode, I talk about how I made the transition in 4 easy steps: You have to want to make the transition. Talk to other people who like getting up really early. Dream a little. Try it once.

Ep. 56 A Super Easy and Fun Cleaning Tip for Kids!
At the beginning of the school year, I was starting to feel anxious, not just because my kids were going back to school, but because I was too!  I am a 5th grade teacher, and all summer long, my kids have been pretty spoiled  because I did most of the chores around the house!  I did this partly because I had more time since I was not working full time, but mostly because I just simply get sick of arguing with them about it!  Each child has a daily chore now, and Hailey's is to scrub stains out of the couch. In this episode, I talk about an awesome homemade cleanser that gets stains out of couches.  Hailey is 8 years old and is actually enjoying it!  Listen in to find out how I make chores fun so that my kids are more likely to do them without arguing!

Ep. 50 Slime, YouTube and YOU!
In this episode, I talk about why it's totally okay for your child to jump onto the slime bandwagon and make some slime!  Actually, making slime, among other things, is vital to their learning and problem solving skills.  You, too, can gain skills from this, but what's also important is that sometimes adults need to o something childlike and fun!  Life it too short to be adulting all the time! Hailey's Favorite Recipe for Slime (Use the scientific method to get the right consistency.  She measures nothing, but that's where the learning comes in!) 1. From our experience, Elmer's Glue works best. 2. Biofinity Contact Solution makes for an awesome activator!  Borax mixed with warm water also works well. 3. In order for the Biofinity to "activate," you'll need to add some baking soda. 4. Soap...we use Meyer's Lemon Soap. 5. Shaving Cream for fluffy slime. 6.  Slime Food Coloring Set Intructions: Pump some soap into a bowl.   Add the glue.   Give a few squirts of Biofinity and baking soda.   Add shaving cream if you want a fluffy slime. Continue to mix until it doesn't stick to the bowl. If you have found  this episode to be helpful, hit subscribe and share this!   You can also find me on Instagram @yourddofawesome or on Twitter at Cyndi Liming.  I have also included links to all of Hailey’s favorite slime ingredients in the show notes and on my website which is www.yourdailydoseofawesomepodcast.com.
