Ep. 61: How to Plan and Execute a Successful Week

Ep. 61: How to Plan and Execute a Successful Week

November 18, 2019

This episode is a bit more strategic than my usual episodes where we talk a lot about feelings (but we will still talk about feelings, of course). This week I'm sharing with you how I plan and execute a successful week. 

 

I share exactly what my morning and evening routines look like, what factors I take into consideration when I plan out my weeks, and more importantly...what a "successful" week even looks like to me. 

 

So if you're interested in living and planning with more intention and leading with heart, then you'll love this episode! And don't forget to grab a free copy of the Ultimate Guide to Achieving a Work/Life Balance (also mentioned in the episode)

Ep. 60: Embracing the Storm

Ep. 60: Embracing the Storm

November 11, 2019

Life is full of ups and downs. It's the seasons, and the ebbs and flows that keep us moving forward. Like riding a wave. We LOVE the ups, but we have a hard time embracing the downs. 

In this "motivation Monday" episode I'm sharing my experience in feeling down, and overwhelmed. It's something that used to trigger feelings of unworthiness within me, and pull me into a downward spiral. 

I've changed my perspective, and learned that my lowest points have taught me the most. I've learned to see them as being beautiful, and even necessary. 

If you'd love some inspiration on how you can "embrace the storms" in your life, then you'll love this episode! 

Enjoy :)

Ep. 58: 3 Ways Perfectionism Holds me Back

Ep. 58: 3 Ways Perfectionism Holds me Back

October 30, 2019

Last Monday I was driving home from a trip to California, feeling fine. Nothing was wrong. And then...all of a sudden, by Tuesday afternoon I was completely burnt out. So I spent the rest of the week barely being able to move. Not wanting to run at all. Accidentally taking almost a 3 hour nap, when I had only planned to rest for 30 minutes. 

I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was going on...so I took some time to reflect on it. And I realized that for the past few weeks I had fallen back into a trap of perfectionism. It was showing up in a new way for me, a more evolved way than before. 

It caused me to ultimately burn out because I was just pushing, pushing, pushing. And I was feeling guilty for resting. So I wasn't really giving myself time to recharge. 

One of the biggest indicators of my perfectionist tendencies is when I burnout. To be honest, I have to listen to my own podcast often to remind myself to give myself more grace, and show up with more self-compassion. 

Do you ever just feel like there's something broken in you? Like you're the only one who needs downtime? Or like...you feel like everyone around you just has it all together, and you're somehow failing? Because it's so easy for me to slip into a comparison mindset. Which then makes me feel like I'm "behind"...and that's usually when my perfectionist tendencies show up the most. 

In this episode I'm sharing with you a few of the ways that perfection has held me back over the years (and showed up in the sneakiest of ways)...plus I'm sharing how I've been able to make the mindset shifts necessary to re-center and connect with myself.

Ep. 57: 4 Life Lessons I’ve Learned while Training for a Half Marathon

Ep. 57: 4 Life Lessons I’ve Learned while Training for a Half Marathon

October 23, 2019

When I finally signed up for my first half marathon for November of this year (it's been on my bucket list for like 6 years) I truly didn’t know what I was getting myself into.

 

Years ago, throughout my days in the military I had developed a love for running. I even dare to say it came easily to me then. I guess when you're 20 years old without creaky bones, it's a lot easier to be active. 

 

Needless to say...this training has been one of the biggest challenges I've faced in a LONG time. But I'm so grateful for all of it, and I feel like in just the past few months I've transformed tremendously.

 

Dive into this episode if you want to hear some of the most important life lessons I've learned throughout my training (yes, they'll apply to you too!)

 

Happy training ;)

Ep. 56: How I Handle Difficult Feedback

Ep. 56: How I Handle Difficult Feedback

October 21, 2019

This past weekend, I couldn't sleep. So I made the mistake of opening up my phone at 1am and reading through some of my DM's on Instagram. 

 

One DM in particular stopped me in my tracks. I had to read it multiple times to comprehend what this person was telling me. My immediate reaction was that...I should go on the defense, right??

 

Is this person insulting me as a business owner, and maybe even a friend? But I took some deep breaths, read through it a few times. I practiced empathizing with this person, and really taking in what she had to say. Because it was obviously important for her to let it out. And it was equally important for me to listen. 

 

I asked for some clarification from her (which I still haven't gotten up to this point, and that's okay!! I'm not always capable of making everyone happy)...but I took some time to reflect on what it meant for me. 

 

This episode is completely unscripted, and honestly when I recorded it I was still experiencing some raw emotions. It was the same day after I received the message. 

 

The reason I'm sharing it with you is because I know you desire playing "bigger"...and that means being more visible. And visibility makes you more susceptible to feedback. Positive, and...dun dun dun...negative feedback too. 

 

Criticism used to terrify me...and still kinda does if I'm being 100% real. But I'm taking you on this journey with me, as I processed what was said, so you can see that negative feedback is not a sign to quit. In fact, it usually means you're getting closer to clarity!

 

If you're curious about the details of this story & wanna hear more about how I personally handle difficult feedback...come listen in! 

 

Can't wait to hear your thoughts :) You're always welcome to reach out to me on Instagram @laurenmkepler. That's where I'm most active. I accept any and all feedback :p

Ep. 55: Are you capable of loving your body?

Ep. 55: Are you capable of loving your body?

October 9, 2019

Okay, okay...so I know that the idea of "loving your body" might seem a little farfetched right now. But hear me out! What if you just started with being able to look in the mirror and say "meh" instead of "blegh". 

That's a start, right?? 

A few years ago, I was on the phone with my sister and she was telling me how much she’s struggling with her body image after having a second child. It was heart wrenching to hear her struggles, and I wanted to help. So when I got off the phone with her, I jumped onto my computer and created a guide for her. I named it the “Body Love Guide”. I realized how amazing and helpful it was, so I repurposed it and decided to give it away for free, to anyone who struggles to love or even accept their own body. And on today’s episode of the podcast I’m gonna take you through some of the most powerful exercises I share in the guide. And at the end of the episode, you can grab yourself a copy of it by clicking the link below! 

Link to your body love guide: Click here! 

So my challenge for you this week is to try one, or both of these exercises shared in the episode, and let me know what you think! You can write me on IG or even share your experience in your stories or on your feed and tag me in it! I’m @laurenmkepler.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this episode of the All or Something Living Podcast. And I can’t wait to talk to you again! But until then...remember that you are enough, and you are doing enough.

Ep. 53: How to Handle Overwhelm

Ep. 53: How to Handle Overwhelm

September 25, 2019

Have you ever been overwhelmed?? I'm willing to be your answer is a big fat "yes". 

My belief is that overwhelm comes less from a large to-do list, and more from a lack of self-care and "balance". 

In this episode I share a story of a recent time I was overwhelmed, and how I was able to reflect and course-correct before things got out of hand! 

It's all about "energy management" versus "time management" which is something I cover in detail in my online course, Vibrancy on Demand. Click here for details to join! 

Here's my question for you this week: What makes you feel overwhelmed, and how do you help yourself through it? Let me know by tagging me on your IG story or post, or DM me! I'm @laurenmkepler.

Ep. 52: The Agreement I Made with Myself that Changed Everything

Ep. 52: The Agreement I Made with Myself that Changed Everything

September 18, 2019

Have you ever showed up and gave it your all in a friendship, or even an interaction with someone...and they criticized you in some way? 

It can be painful to hear the harsh judgments and criticisms others make about you, but it can also be enlightening. 

In this episode I share a story of a friendship gone sour, and the feelings I had when the truth came out about how this person felt about me. 

It reminded me of an agreement I had made with myself earlier in the summer that literally transformed the way I was showing up in my life (for the better). 

I'm sharing it all with you in today's episode! The drama, the pain, and the lessons...I get real with it all. 

Here's my question for you this week: What's one agreement you need to make with yourself right now?? Tag me in your Instagram stories or post, or DM me! I'm @laurenmkepler
