The Roots of Perfectionism EP: 563

10/25/2021
This week on the podcast I’m talking about perfectionism, because as honorable as it is to care about being a better person and to give a shit about bringing your best and making a difference, we can go overboard with it all and feel like crap if we’re not doing our best at all times, which leads to feeling bad about ourselves and burn out. That’s not what we’re after! Got a comment or a question? I'm all ears!

Devoting some time to stretching is a great way to check in with yourself and your body and see how you’re feeling, where you might be feeling tension that you weren’t aware of, and just sending yourself some love. But you probably already knew that. Today is not about knowing, it's about doing. Legs up the wall * Both feet straight up the wall for a few minutes * Open your legs into a V for a few minutes

The 5-Day Dawdle, Day 2: Take 20 Minutes Alone EP: 558

10/19/2021
Spending time alone is a key ingredient for replenishment. The thing is, when you’re alone, no one is talking to you, or asking you to do something, and you can hear yourself think.

The 5-Day Dawdle, Day 1: Let’s Slow it Down a Bit EP: 557

10/13/2021
Because you are listening to a podcast called How to be a Better Person, you give a shit, about a lot of things, including making good choices.

Choose Love: Making Decisions from the Heart EP: 553

10/12/2021
One of the reasons why decisions can be so taxing is that we’re over-relying on our brains to make them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for making pro and con lists and doing research and mulling things over, but your brain isn’t the only game in town. There’s also your heart, which is all about love. It sees possibility and seeks expansion and understands things like truth and beauty--all things that the rational mind is kind of unimpressed with. I've got an exercise that will help you.

Especially now in the Covid era, when there are so many added decisions we’ve needed to make that often feel like impossible choices.For some decisions, you need a way to cut through the noise, give your rational, thinking mind a break, and check in with your gut, aka your...
