The Ultimate Journey of Self-Care

Health & Wellness Podcasts

Self-Care is an area we tend to discount - we believe doing things for ourselves that require time and commitment are luxuries and indulgences which are considered excessive, when it's the ONE THING that can change the game for us in every aspect of our lives. So many things can constitute self-care and everything we do for us is a journey. It's not a one size fits all approach so what works for one person may not work for someone else. Each day we not only learn more about ourselves, but we evolve more into the ultimate creations we are intended to be. When we say yes to us, it's all possible. Tune in each week for real talk about all aspects of self-care: health, fitness, spirituality and mindfulness, travel and leisure, and a whole lot more. Get on your journey of self-care with me and we'll travel the road together. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

This episode is one you MUST check out! The #covid19 pandemic has really forced all of us to live different, make different choices and evaluate HOW we do us.

Why You DO Have Time for Fitness

10/13/2020
So what really IS the best way to approach fitness and activity? If you google that, you’ll get THOUSANDS of ideas likely. And since we are in the LAST quarter of the year, you may be wondering if reaching your fitness goals is even still possible, with the holidays arriving in a little over 2 months time.

Sleep and Dreams in Self-Care

9/8/2020
Sleep and dreams can tell us a lot about ourselves, and what we are either facing, or what we have in our subconscious mind.

Holly Emmerson is a Dream Oracle, and has an amazing ability to connect with spirits in the dream world for her clients--and in so doing, she is able to help get answers and solutions for her...

Shame and Self-Care

Do you ever blame yourself for what you THINK you should have done differently? This often presents itself in the form of negative self talk and our mind listens to it.

Listen in to my candid conversation with my guest about not only what SHAME is, but HOW it can either hold us back, or help us decide to break the stranglehold it has on us and how we make...

Do You Believe What You Think? You May Want to Rethink That

8/25/2020
Do you ever stop and pay attention to your thoughts? Like really pay attention to them? We think in excess of 50,000 thoughts in one day easily--the majority of them are either similar or repetitive. And some we don’t even remember (obviously). And like how we teach in a fitness program, the goal is to get efficient and effective at what you do WELL so you can see benefit. This in turn saves you time, energy and produces the results you want. This is most definitely the outcome you want...

Fitness Talk for 50

Ever wonder about which supplements and products are worth investing in? I get asked all the time questions like ‘what should I buy at WholeFoods’ or ‘Which vitamins are the best? And the truth is that a lot of what is on the market is not worth the packaging it comes in. We want quick fixes as a society--and if we think something will be too hard or too lengthy to do, we want an easier way. There is no fast track to success for us--especially when it comes to our fitness and our self...
