075: Overcoming Perfectionism in Order to Live a Fulfilling Life
I've heard about "perfectionism" so many times, but it never occurred to me how common it was (or the fact that yeah.... maybe I have struggled with it also). The sense of giving up when you're not great at something, the temptation to just give up when you make a misstep toward a big goal, procrastinating until the last minute out of the fear that you will mess up... if any of that sounds familiar, there's a chance you struggle with perfectionism too.In this episode, I cover what I've learned about perfectionism and myself lately, and how I've taken control back- and how you can take control of your perfectionist thinking, too.

074: How to Avoid Greenwashing
Ever been browsing the aisles in the store, and then find yourself surprised at how "eco" everything has gotten? "Natural", "biodegradable", "eco-friendly", "green" thrown left and right. Tree here, green font there. Are all these items REALLY eco-friendly and doing something positive for the environment? Bad news- no. Good news- there's something we can do about it.So many companies think all consumers are mindless beings with no capability to think for themselves and make smart choices- however, by empowering ourselves, we can better understand greenwashing and how to avoid it.https://www.cdp.net/en/companies/companies-scores#446647786929955804cc9a3a08ef1eb4

"Humans are killing the planet", "humanity is destroying the planet"... pressure like the drip, drip, drip that'll never stop, amiright?

070: How to Start Prioritizing Things That Bring You Joy
Throughout adulthood- especially motherhood- it's so easy to lose sight of what brings you joy. Of course your kids bring you joy, and the Blippi songs that get stuck in you head, and Friday night pizza night. But what about those books you used to love reading? What about that hobby you've always wanted to try but never found time for amongst the mountains of laundry and diapers and snack grabbing 24/7 (cough, like practicing yoga or learning to make bread from scratch)? In this episode, we're getting to the nitty gritty and I'm sharing how I've been prioritizing things that bring me joy lately. Talking about the importance of planting seeds that will be cultivated in order to bring more joy and sense of purpose in your future.
