Because I Can't Be The Only One With Pandemic-Induced Anxiety

2/22/2021
We interrupt our Special Podcast Series for this announcement! I'm hosting my very first Live By Design Podcast Meditation Challenge I don't know about you, but my pandemic-induced anxiety has been creeping into my life more and more, and I don't love it. But I know that when I meditate regularly that my mind is calmer and my stress and anxiety lessens. And I figure I can't be the only one feeling this way. Which is the inspiration for our #minimeditationchallenge and this week's podcast...

Bonus: Use Your Joy List To Leave A Funky Feeling Day Behind

2/18/2021
Have you ever had a day where you woke up on the wrong side of the bed? Where you could turn your day around if you actually tried, but maybe you don't know where to start? On those days I like to break out my "Joy List" and purposefully make my off-feeling day into a good one, by harnessing the power of intention and joy. *Join The Live By Design Podcast's 5-Day Meditation Challenge!

Book Report: Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee

2/15/2021
Have you ever read a book that took something intangible (such as joy) and the author made it feel approachable and, dare I say, attainable? That's exactly how I felt while reading Ingrid Fetell Lee's “Joyful.” I've always sought to cultivate joy, but Ingrid gave me the framework and vernacular to take my study to the next level. Throughout the book she explores how joy can be purposefully created through measures both big and small, and she equips us with the tools to cultivate joy in our...

Bonus: How To Enjoy The Journey With Alice Havill

2/11/2021
In this week's bonus episode, Kate sits down with Alice Havill to give a special shoutout to all parents out there who are striving to live with intention while raising little humans. It's not easy to make yourself a priority when you're giving time and energy to your kids too, but it's always worth it. We see you! Kate also shares a few of her tips for leading an active lifestyle when you have little, little ones still at home. It's not always glamorous, but it gets the job done. Alice...

The Habit of Movement with Alice Havill

2/8/2021
The Special Podcast Series continues this week with a further exploration of Physical Activity…one of Kate's all time favorite topics. Kate sat down virtually with Alice Havill - a fearless adventurer who loves to ski, run, rock climb, and everything in between - and shared a conversation about the habit of physical activity, the benefits of movement (and it's not just the obvious that we get into!), as well the personal mantras we both lean on when a physical pursuit starts to test our...

Bonus: Boost Your Health With Hydration

2/4/2021
What's the one thing you can do immediately to give your physical health a boost? Hydrate! I know, it's not the most exciting thing, BUT it's a game changer when it comes to your physical health, mental clarity, and general feeling of wellbeing. This week Kate shares her tried and true method for deciding how much water you should aim to drink daily, how to incorporate hydration into your routine, and ways to keep things interesting (because let's be honest, water can get a little boring if...

You Too Can Embrace Joyful Movement

2/1/2021
Join Kate this week as she dives into the next piece of IIN’s Circle of Life Exercise - Physical Activity. Joyful movement is an integral part of Kate’s life, but that’s taken years of embracing sweating as a means of mental health support and establishing habits that support an active lifestyle to make it part of her daily routine. It can be difficult to add movement to your day when you are already juggling family, work, a social life, you name it...but if you feel stuck or need motivation...

Bonus: Reflections on Self Worth with Loukia Mastrodimos

1/28/2021
If you could reach back through the time-space continuum, knowing what you know now, what is something you wish you could share with yourself, from ten years ago? “I would say to that 40-year-old, you are worthy as you are. You are worthy whether or not you get married, whether or not you have kids, whether or not you succeed in the normal standards that society says you succeed.” *Join The Live By Design Podcast's 5-Day Meditation Challenge! From March 1 - 5 receive free guided...

Bonus: What Are Primary Foods And How Do I Nurture Them?

1/21/2021
So, what are these “primary foods” you keep talking about, you ask? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Funnily enough, they’re not what you’d think! The Institute for Integrative Nutrition taught me the value of nourishing yourself with what feeds your heart and soul first, and that when these areas of life are given the care they deserve it’s easier to then focus on your secondary foods (what you actually eat!) and choose to eat what blesses your body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The primary foods are: healthy relationships,...

Permission Granted: It's Time To Prioritize Your Health

1/18/2021
What does “Health” mean to you? For me, it means making myself a priority. It looks like fueling my body with food that blesses it. It looks like meditating, journaling, and moving my body to support my mental and physical health. It looks like reading and being a life-long learner to nurture my soul. It looks like painting and sewing and creating and crafting because it makes my heart sing. It looks like making my personal health and wellness a priority. Because here’s the kicker. If you...

Bonus: Mini Meditation - "You Are Alive, You Are Whole, All Is Well"

1/14/2021
Inspiration can come in the unlikeliest of places. Like from my favorite love story meets historical fiction mixed with time travel and sexy accents kind of TV show…Outlander. I was recently binging the latest season when these lines spoke to my heart. I was going through a challenging season and feeling a little down, but I found comfort in hearing, “You are alive. You are whole. All is well.” And I thought if I needed reminding of this that you might as well. So this week’s Mini...

Living Intentionally In 2021: The Special Series Begins!

1/11/2021
Did 2020 leave you feeling a little bruised? Same. There were some absolutely bright, beautiful moments last year, but it was also one of the most challenging years for me personally to date. Did I come out of the year stronger and more resilient then ever? Hell yes. Am I exhausted from all that growth? You know it. Because of this, I’ve decided in 2021 to go back to basics. I want to build a strong holistic foundation upon which I’ll lean into my good habits, love myself well, and in turn...
