Ep 32: How to Make Friends as an Introvert

May 1, 2019

Hello, fellow introvert! I’m so glad you’re interested in learning how to make friends...because I know you’d like to hole up by yourself most of the time, but you also understand the value of friendship and connection in your own life!

 

First of all...I’m a friend! I understand you, and I know how hard it can be for you to open up to others sometimes. Especially when it’s so easy to stay bundled up in your comfort zone, and live in your head. But we’ve been given these beautiful bodies so we can venture out into the world and enjoy the physical human experience!

 

For me, the difficult part about making friends is that most of the time I’d rather be alone. So I struggle to build friendships that I’m actually consistently present in. Especially if I have more than like, 5 friends at once. Because I’m good with like 1-2 social events per month.

 

The reason that the idea of having friendships in my life became so important to me is because I learned how vital it is to my health and happiness. Also, once I learned to express my feelings instead of bottling them up, I learned the value of talking to someone, especially another woman that understands my experience and can relate to what I’m going to.

 

Now the common misconception is that introverts are shy. But that’s not always the case--we’re often just big thinkers. So while we may not be shy, we may come across as socially awkward because it’s hard for us to pull ourselves out of our heads, and into the present moment. It takes some intention for sure!

 

Often times, we are shy as well. I can be a mixture of both, but I think we’re all shy in some situations. But most of the time I just find my own company to be more enjoyable than the company of someone else.

 

That’s why as an introvert, it’s important for me to form strong, meaningful connections with people that fill my cup more often than not, instead of draining my energy and wanting a shallow type of connection.

 

So in this episode, I’ll teach you my top 5 tips for making friends as an introvert!

Ep. 31: What to do if your Feelings of Unworthiness are Holding you Back

Ep. 31: What to do if your Feelings of Unworthiness are Holding you Back

April 24, 2019

Ladies--we need to talk. I see so many of you beautiful creatures out there beating yourselves up, demeaning yourselves, and breaking your own self down.

 

This is not okay!! I think as women especially, we’re held to such a high standard. We’re supposed to be classy in the streets, but trashy in the sheets. We’re expected to be kind, but not too kind because then we’d be a pushover. Oh, but if we’re too “unkind”, we might be labeled as a bitch. We’re supposed to look pretty, but not like we’re trying too hard, because then someone might call us a slut.

 

Will all this pressure put on us, what are we supposed to do?? Who are we supposed to be?

 

I’m willing to bet that you are too hard on yourself. That you expect A LOT from yourself, but you never feel like you really measure up. Maybe when you were growing up, you were told that you weren’t enough. Or you saw your dad treat your mom like she wasn’t enough. Or you internalized all the messaging out there about how a woman should look, act, feel, etc.

 

Are you overthinking everything you do? Do you leave conversations and replay everything that was said in your mind, and cringe at all the times you felt like you said the “wrong” thing? Are you thinking to yourself “I was too pushy” or “did I talk to much?” or “does he/she even like me??”

 

Your feelings of unworthiness can be so paralyzing that you might be having a hard time expressing yourself, or being honest about your needs, or becoming the woman you desire to be.

 

I SEE you, and I know what you’re going through. I struggled with feeling unworthy (and still do sometimes) because of the things I was told when I was a young girl. The hurtful words have burned in my mind and held me back for wayyy too long. 

 

Those words are still deeply ingrained in my mind, and I’ve had to do a ton of mindset work to move past them. I’ve had to REALLY work hard on changing that script so that someone else’s judgment doesn’t determine how I live my life.

 

So if you’re feeling unworthy right now, how can you move forward? How can you begin to feel more worthy?

 

I'll teach you in this episode!

Maybe right now you feel like small setbacks leave you feeling stuck for a long time. Maybe you’re afraid to even go for certain goals because you’re afraid of what failure might do to you. And maybe that’s why you feel like you’re not really making progress in life.

 

Maybe you just feel like a failure in general, but you don’t know how to make progress in becoming the person you want to be.

 

Here’s one of my favorite quotes about failure, and I’m sure you’ve heard it before…”the comeback is always stronger than the setback”...but that’s only if you allow it to be!

 

Which is why, in this podcast episode I’m going to equip you with the tools that will allow you to consistently make progress in your life...even if you fail 1,000 times along the way.

Ep. 23: 3 Unconventional Ways to Build Habits that Actually Stick

Ep. 23: 3 Unconventional Ways to Build Habits that Actually Stick

February 27, 2019

How many times have you told yourself that you were going to start working out, or eating healthy, or finally tackle that cleaning project you’ve been avoiding forever?

 

How many times have you actually followed through? I imagine the story goes a little something like this...you start to notice that your pants are getting a little tighter. You feel more and more uncomfortable in your body by the day...but you ignore it. You assume that if you ignore it, it will just go away. Until one day, you find yourself screaming at your spouse and kids...and you’re not exactly sure why you’re so upset.

 

Until you dig a little deeper and realize that you haven’t really been taking care of yourself. And it’s taking a toll on your relationships, and your self-esteem. You decide it’s time to make a change! You make the declaration to start working out 5 days a week, cut out gluten, sugar, carbs, oh and while you’re at it, you might as well start drinking a gallon of water a day.

 

At first, you’re motivated and excited! You think to yourself, “this time will be different! I’m tired of living this way”. For the first week or two, you’re on it! You sweat your booty off in those hour long gym sessions. You declare on Instagram “I cut out gluten, sugar, and carbs and I’ve never felt more energized!”, you carry your gallon jug around as a badge of honor for your new healthy lifestyle.

 

But then...the inevitable happens.

 

Life kicks in. Your kid gets sick. Or you get in a fight with a spouse or friend and it totally throws you off. Suddenly, your new habits are the first thing to go out the window. And your back to square one. Not only are you back to square one, but you’re also pissed at yourself. How could you let this happen again? When will you actually follow through with what you say you’ll do? Why can’t you just get it together?

 

I hear you, my friend. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in this position. And how many times I felt like I was treading water, and never actually making progress. I thought it was my lack of willpower or motivation that was holding me back. WRONG. So wrong. It was actually the way I was approaching my goals and resolutions that was keeping me stuck. Thankfully, I’ve been through it and come out on the other side (more victoriously than I ever could have imagined, might I add!) and I’m here to help you beat habit building overwhelm so you can actually become the person you know you’re capable of being, and create the life of your dreams.

 

Wanna know how to become your ideal self, and live the life you dream of? 

 

Listen to the episode & I'll guide you through a few of the most impactful ways you can start to build life changing habits right now.

Ep. 22: How to Crush your Daily to-do List

Ep. 22: How to Crush your Daily to-do List

February 20, 2019

Do you lack the energy it takes to get through your days, or weeks? Is it something you feel is holding you back, but you don't know what to do about it? 

 

Don't worry, I've got you! This episode will cover my top 8 tips for generating more energy on a consistent bases. I take a holistic approach to this idea of creating more energy, which means we work from the mindset out! 

 

When I asked my audience what they struggle with the most in terms of health & happiness, many of them said they don’t have enough energy to get through the day...I know how it feels to get those afternoon crashes, or to have a hard time even getting out of bed in the first place. It is one of the most frustrating things. Because let’s face it...if you’re not feeling good or energetic, then you’ll be way less likely to actually do the things you set out to do every day. Then that snowballs into not meeting long-term goals, which leads to beating yourself up, and feeling like crap about yourself. We don’t want that!

 

In this episode, I’ll share with you my best tips for generating more energy in my life. Using these tips, I’ve been able to not only have enough energy to get through my days, but feeling more energetic makes me feel more vibrant and happy. And that’s the goal for me, happiness!

 

What's your goal? How would having more energy change your life?
