Ep. 27 The Bare Room
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. This is exactly what I did over the past 5 months during my hiatus from the podcast. By clearing away that which was no longer serving me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually ~ I was left with a "bare room". I then only allowed back in the elements of my life that I felt fully in tune with. In this episode, I discuss the benefits of creating "bare rooms" in your life. When you are clear and open to see what really matters in your life and what is worth keeping you will naturally evolve and grow into a more peaceful version of yourself.

Ep. 26 Our Collective Pause
With the current pandemic, everyone around the world is taking a collective pause currently. It is up to each of us on how we want to use this time of pause. What does that look like for you? Some are not getting a pause, like the healthcare workers on the frontlines….and other essential workers. But for the majority of us we are getting a pause. Some are finding relief in this pause, where others are struggling as their busy life had become a buffer from really looking at their own life. Some are relishing in the pause where others are wanting to rush back to normal, But I want you to analyze what part of normal is worth rushing back to. We are all going to globally be faced with a new normal, what is your new normal going to look like? What if you took this time and looked for the deeper lessons and decided how your new normal is going to look. What have you discovered about yourself in this time? And if you have been in consumption mode of the news...how can you now start to take this time to learn more about how you want to live your life.

For this episode I discuss the difference between clean pain and dirty pain when faced with difficult life situations such as a death of a loved one, breakups or witnessing others close to you struggle either with mental illness or addiction.

Ep. 21 Navigating Goal Setbacks
“If you expect life to be easy, challenges will seem difficult. If you accept that challenges may occur, life will be easier.” For this episode I wanted to time it around the time of the New Year where most people have a setback in the new goals they created for themselves which tends to be 3 weeks after New Years Day. I discuss how one of the most important skills we can develop is our tolerance to failure or experiencing setbacks. Once we realize that this is just part of the process, we allow ourselves to learn from the setback vs beating ourselves up about it or giving up all together. We are then able to continue moving forward each day towards our goals and giving ourselves however long it takes to get there. Strengthening the mindset of curiosity of why something is not working vs shaming ourselves about it. The true magic lies in who you become along the way towards reaching your goals.

Ep. 20 What Is Your Buffer?
Buffering is when we use external things to change how we feel emotionally. It’s something we do to keep from fully experiencing our lives, to hide from reality, to procrastinate, to not feel certain emotions...etc. We don’t want to face the truth of our lives because we don’t want to experience any type of negative emotion. In this episode I describe what buffering is and describe the different type of buffers and what the consequences that tend to follow with each one. Unacceptable Buffers Numbing Out Buffers Accepted By Society Unconscious Buffers I talk about how the first step in eliminating buffers is to just be aware of what yours are. Take a listen and then examine your life to see what your buffers are and then decided which ones you are wanting to work on eliminating or lessening. When you stop buffering, you start living the truth of your life. You start seeing exactly what’s going on in your mind and in your emotions and your actions, it is the best way to live your most honest life.

Ep. 19 2020 Vision
For this podcast I cover how important it is as you start this New Year to make the resolution to see yourself the most clear that you can. Use 2020 vision to create the year you want for yourself outside of societal expectations and the shame expectations you place on yourself. New Year's resolutions tend to be how to make ourselves more acceptable and tend to be built out of shame for something we perceive as a shortcoming. In this episode I discuss the pitfalls of starting off your New Year already feeling less than. I cover how instead of creating resolutions that you think will make you a more acceptable and valued human - dive into how you are already full of valued characteristics now. You are already an amazing individual possessing something that someone else wishes they had. You each have something that is uniquely you that is already incredibly valuable. Embrace that and then expand on it to create your resolutions from a place of love, self compassion and worth vs lack, shame and fear.

Ep. 18 The Space Inbetween
Instead of rushing to create new resolutions for 2020...how can you take this space we have between Christmas and New Year’s Day to reflect on the past year. So often we will want to erase the past year in our minds in anticipation for the “fresh beginnings” of the New Year. In this episode I encourage you to look back on 2019 and embrace the “good and bad” and to look for the lessons in all that happened and allow yourself to have full closure of the year before moving forward. This time of the year is one of my favorites as when all the holiday rush tends to slow down, it allows the quiet space for true reflection.

Ep. 13 Learning To Stay With Emotions
Inspired by the insight I gained in 2002 from listening to Pema Chodren while on strict hospital bed rest for 2 months when pregnant with my twins. In this episode I talk about the benefit of learning to stay with your emotions. Our common behaviors when we feel uncomfortable emotions are to either resist, avoid (buffer with addictions) or react. What if you were willing to stay with whatever emotion you had? We often feel like we won’t be able to survive certain emotions, but it is not the emotions that cause us harm, it’s the actions we take from emotions we are feeling or resisting. Topics covered in this episode: Describing What Emotions Are Discuss How As A Society We Are Taught To Avoid Our Emotions Consequences Of Not Feeling Your Emotions - Buffers and Addictions Benefits Of Allowing Your Emotions Learning How to Truly Feel An Emotion In Your Body Mentioned In The Podcast: https://pemachodronfoundation.org

Ep. 12 Adjusting Your Timeline With Expectations & Goals
What if you gave yourself the space to take all the time you needed to reach a certain goal? Having strict timelines for goals and expectations for ourselves and others can often kill our dreams in addition to blocking not only our own potential but others in our lives as well . For this episode I discuss how we often will give up on ourselves or others when expectations and goals are not met by a specific time. We can cause way more self limiting beliefs and suffering for ourselves when we postpone feeling good until we get to the finish line. I offer the mindset shift of approaching goals with more curiosity, lightness and most of all feeling good about yourself NOW vs the finish line. Topics covered in the episode: Body Image/ Weight Loss New Business/ Creative Projects Relationships Expectations Parenting Health/Medical Issues

Ep. 8 JOMO ~ The Joy of Missing Out
JOMO is The antithesis to FOMO! I like to think about JOMO as being the ultimate act of self care.

Why do so many of us overcommit ourselves to the point of exhaustion to where we have nothing left to give to ourselves? If you need more JOMO in your life...this episode is for you!
