Equinox: uplevelled self-care needed!

sticky September 20, 2019

This time of year you need to pay extra attention. The autumn (or spring) equinox is around the corner—depending on which hemisphere you live in. The week before and after the equinox our immune system is at its lowest. As the seasons change, our physical body changes with it. So it's extra important to take goo…

Have you been taught these fundamental basics for life?

September 20, 2023

It’s interesting how as we grow up, we are taught so many things but rarely do we learn something as fundamental as taking care of our well-being. It never really occurred to me that you had to recharge, I was always busy doing things and kept going as there was always enough to do. Sure, I would sit down and w…

My best tips to enjoy a relaxing vacation

July 19, 2023

I’ve learned to block off vacation weeks in my calendar. I know when I don’t put those chunks in first, they get squashed—because there is always plenty to do. Because I consciously schedule my time off, I thought I could check the box “vacation covered.” I make sure that (ideally) every six weeks I hav…

Everything is a choice. What is yours?

June 28, 2023

The inspiration for this post came to me a few minutes ago. You can listen to the original audio of 2.5 minutes at the bottom of this page or read the typed out version below 😉. Everything is a choice. It might be a subconscious or unconscious choice but everything is a choice. You have twenty-four hou…

I felt like a failure

June 12, 2023

If you've ever been (on the verge of) burned out—or if you know someone who went through that experience—this might be worth reading... There’s a lot of shame around burnout. It often feels like a failure. I know that I felt like I had failed—I shouldn’t have ended up in burnout. I felt like I did somet…

Who are you underneath the layers?

May 23, 2023

We’re social creatures. We adapt. That’s how we survive. But what if you've adapted so much that you’re losing touch with who you truly are? What if you’ve become so good at sensing what other people need and what is expected of you that you’ve adjusted yourself to the point that this desired behavior has …

The inner creates the outer

May 5, 2023

The majority of results stem from our energy, not our actions. I believe the 80-20% rule applies here as well. I know that’s not how most of us behave, nor is it what we’ve been taught. Instead, we spend the majority of our time taking frantic action to try to influence the remaining 20%. We like taking action a…

Why you should stop going the extra mile

April 12, 2023

I have a natural eye for detail and I have very high standards, often higher than many other people. That reminds me of what my marketing manager said at the time: What’s 80% for you is 110% for most people. You don’t need to put all your time and energy into the final 20%. Stop at 80% and everyone’s overjoyed…

I wish I had listened when people told me this...

April 7, 2023

I hung up the phone and sat back on the edge of the bed. My parents had just spent the better half of the conversation trying to convince me I had to be careful and slow down. Telling me I was doing too much. That I was treading in dangerous territory. I disagreed. I was doing fine. Honestly, I was a little annoyed …

How to trust the timing of your life

March 20, 2023

Believing you're exactly where you're meant to be isn't always easy. Trusting the timing of your life starts with dealing with what is. It means accepting your current circumstances. That doesn’t mean you condone them! Acceptance simply means you admit where you are—however shitty that situation may be. Pret…

This is why my work means so much to me

March 8, 2023

I love seeing what is set in motion for clients when we start working together. Clients usually have something specific they want to work on and that’s what we’ll start with. Then inevitably something unexpected happens in their personal or professional life and what we focus on evolves. Just like life always chang…
