How to Simplify the Holidays for a More Meaningful Season

Are you starting to feel the pressure of holiday gifting, to-do lists, and social obligations? It’s only October, but I’m already getting bombarded with holiday marketing emails and advertisements trying to get me to buy all of the things. Read on for a few simple ideas to help you keep your cool during this frenetic […]

The Surprising Power of Lowering the Bar

None of us are capable of doing All Of The Things all at once. With lives that are filled with obligations and opportunities, It’s up to us to determine where we want to invest our limited time, energy, and resources. Lowering the bar on purpose (as opposed to dropping the ball by accident) can feel […]

Discomfort and Making Yourself Proud

I wasn’t born with grit, but I have learned to cultivate it. As a kid, I used to give up on things whenever they got hard. Ballet. Gymnastics. Iceskating. Even in the early days of entrepreneurship, I used to want to give up on my business every six months or so. At first sign of […]

Game Changing Ways to Automate Your Entire Life

The average person makes 35,000 decisions a day. Oy! With all of the stimulation of modern life (news, social media, the buzz of email and text notifications) coupled with daily work and family responsibilities, it’s a wonder we get anything done at all. One surefire way to feel less overwhelmed is to find ways to […]

How to Build a Better Morning Routine

It’s hard to overstate the importance and impact of creating and maintaining a consistent morning routine.

A Few Ways to Find Hope When the World Feels Bleak

If you’ve been feeling distracted, emotional, angry, or anxious lately, I can assure you you’re in good company.

I’ve had to remind myself that the antidote to despair […]

How To Be Okay with Not Making Everybody Happy

It turns out that it is actually impossible to make everybody happy. I know because I’ve tried. In some primitive way humans are wired to depend on others. Being accepted by the pack can feel urgent and necessary, even when it’s totally irrational. At times, having everyone like me not only felt important, it felt […]

Why You Should Do Less

It feels like everyone I know is overwhelmed almost all of the time. I speak with clients, friends, and even family members who are retired who consistently feel like they have more to do than they can successfully cram into a day. My neighbor bashfully confessed to missing the days of covid lockdown where she […]

Getting Over Getting Older

For as long as I can remember, I’ve associated aging with physical and mental decline, depression, illness, and isolation. Not shockingly, I have amassed plenty of evidence to support this not-so-fabulous belief system. Most impactfully, when my father turned seventy he fell into a severe depression. He was one of the most robust, energetic, vital […]

5 Reasons I Don’t Want a Bigger House

Time for some real talk. Most people want a bigger house. I don’t. Our home is 1200 square feet, which feels absolutely perfect for our busy family of four.
