10 Tips For a Strong Fall Season

It’s just about that time – summertime! People are starting to get double vaccinated, the evenings are longer and warmer, school’s out soon, and we are trying to usher back in a sense of normalcy.

Throughout the summer, I generally try and come from a place of YES instead of my frequent place of NO. “No, you can’t stay up later,” “No, it’s too late to go Dairy Queen tonight,” or “No, I can’t meet you for coffee, my friend, because I have too many deadlines.” It was a few years ago that I decided that that “no” was not going to dominate my summer vocabulary. Summer is a perfect time to say YES to your life. ESPECIALLY after the year we’ve had. We want to make sure we’re seizing the moments this summer 2021.

6 Ways To Stay Motivated While Working In The Summer

Happy Long Weekend for my North American Friends – Canada Day or 4th of July! I am trying to channel my younger son this long weekend who is the kind of person that just JUMPS into life. I stumbled upon this picture of him from many summers ago, and every time I see it, it reminds me to JUMP in the direction of my dreams and to always remain a free spirit. It’s funny how much we often learn from little people.

14 Surefire Morning Rituals to Start Your Day Right

Mornings are not easy. Doesn’t it make you wonder why those people in the coffee commercials are always ecstatic to roll out of bed, open their window drapes, and start the daily grind? It’s almost like the sun is smiling back at them. I’m a mom of two little angels and now that I’m months away from having my third child, I admit, mornings but can tough. But more than just a perfect cup of coffee, there are tons of morning habits you can do to start AND end your day right.

So let’s get right to it, shall we?

Women Would Rather Talk About Their Sex Life Than Their Finances

I was brought up to believe you never spend more than you have (ok dipping into my dad’s wallet sometimes helped!)  I learned to save and make pretty good choices all things considered. Then I met my husband and from the time we started dating until the time we divorced, I allowed myself to make decisions that were NOT in the best interest of myself, nor my family.

Self-Care Your Space: Spring Decor On A Budget

It’s finally April this week! That means spring is here! After a long and freezing winter, still in a global pandemic, I think we’re all ready for a little sunshine.

I love spring. Don’t you just love putting on your brighter colored clothing and wearing heels instead of winter boots? I know I’m ready.

I feel the exact same way about home décor! We spend the winter months sitting on the couch and always seem to have cozy blankets close by. These blankets, as well as other home accessories tend be darker colored and more subdued in their feel. Spring is the time to freshen your home and add some color! It is the ultimate act of self-love and self-care when you can create a home that creates joy. These changes don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. There are many things you can do to refresh your space on a budget.

Change is Inevitable. Growth Is Optional.

Change… it’s the only constant.

We can fight it, we can try to avoid it, but change happens.

Change can be really hard. We as a people, are not by nature, adaptive to change. Why? Change means ‘new.’ Change involves the unknown. Change means breaking comfortable patterns. Change involves going outside our comfort zone. We can fight change, we can try to avoid it, but change happens. And while change can come as a huge relief if we’ve just moved past a bad chapter in our lives, change can also be very scary. It involves tremendous risk, and can really tickle our insecurities.

But here’s what’s true– you make the choice about how you’re going to respond to change. You hold the power. On this #MotivationMonday, understand that change welcomes in a wonderful sense of freedom.

Tory Burch’s quote above applies to business, true, but it also applies to marriage, parenting, or just LIFE. When we sit complacent on the fence paralyzed by fear of change, life will just pass us by.

10 Superfoods To Incorporate Into Your 2022 Diet For Well-Being

Hello! Reporting live from C2! An incredible conference in my hometown of Montreal. I am about to hear Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple speak. I’m excited.

Seeing that summer is around the corner, and knowing that my goal as a certified life coach (and now yoga teacher in training) is to always get you as close to your personal best as possible, today I wanted to share 10 Superfoods of 2017 that you should be incorporating into your diet. Many of these superfoods have helped keep me in good health. Today, we’re getting off the fence, off the junk, and caring for ourselves. Consider this your whack over the head with the frying pan (pardon the irony). It’s May. May is about rebirth, rejuvenation, and regrowth. So, if you’ve been a bad girl, give yourself permission to own that… and then let it go. I’m doing that too.

It’s NO-vember and No Is A Complete Sentence

And when I say, “no thank you right now is, ” it doesn’t mean I won’t be interested in a couple of weeks, months, or next year. It means for today. And when I keep the door open, I feel good about that. I read somewhere once that “SAYING NO TO SOMEONE, IS SAYING YES TO YOURSELF.” Just let that soak in. It’s really true. Saying no to someone else, means saying yes to yourself. It means freeing yourself up to do more of the things you love… read a book, go for a walk, take a painting class. Whatever.
