EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


“ There is power in moving towards the peace, the calm, the grounding. And moving away from the hustle and the grind and the anxiety.”


Do you struggle to slow down?

As type A, overachievers, we’ve been taught to hustle and grind to succeed in life. And slowing down? It’s HARD. And in less than two weeks, I’m going to be literally forced to do just that for an entire month.

I’ve been ruminating a lot on slowing down and been working on practicing doing just that in my own life with intention — and I hope this reminds you that slowing down is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself.

Here are a few things I touch on in todays episode:

  • The struggle of slowing down

  • Being present with ourselves and our thoughts is something so few of us actually know how to do

  • Tapping into your inner wisdom

  • How giving ourselves the space to breathe can lead to so many incredible things

  • Some of my favorite tools to intentionally be present with myself every single day

  • Worth and work

EPISODE SNEAK PEEK


" I think I was being real and authentic and unfiltered for the first time. I was able to be really raw and I was able to write what I was really feeling, even if it was dark, and I was afraid to admit it to myself."

She’s the author of the Amazon best-selling book Let It Out: A Journey Through Journaling (Hay House, 2016) and has contributed to Hello Giggles, Refinery29, and Mind Body Green.
