One of my favorite ways to immediately feel less overwhelmed or stressed is to practice…
When I look at how I manage the everyday juggle and grind, there are two things that keep me most grounded through it all. There are two things, that no matter how stressed I am, or how frazzled I may be, that literally transform my entire aura. One is meditation.
The other… yoga.

About 13 years ago, I was close to burning out. Literally. I don’t think anyone knew just how close I was. If you’re reading our blog today for the first time- I owned a successful company, I had sales growing by the quarter. I was named one of the Top 30 Under 30 Entrepreneurs. Top 40 Under 40 Nominee. I graced the cover of multiple business sections in newspapers. I was named a Profit Hot 50 Company- One of Canada’s 50 Emerging Growth Companies- I was the only female CEO on the list. And more. I was newly married. I had no kids.
Hot out of the oven, my latest meditation on Insight Timer.
Enjoy this guided mediation for compassion, self-love and self-care. You have everything inside of you that you need to live a rich life full of joy and abundance. So, go ahead and find a quiet spot, grab your earphones, get comfortable whether sitting or lying down, close your eyes and press play. ?
The first time I was diagnosed with depression, I took three weeks off from work but still managed to keep my job. I wasn’t sleeping well at night. Worries kept me awake, and when sleep did come, I’d awaken in a head to toe sweat. Stomach aches every Monday morning, heartburn and headaches Sunday nights. There were too many symptoms to ignore.
It’s December. December, people!! When did THAT happen?
Beside beautiful falling snow, winter often brings something entirely different — flu season! In fact, my family’s skin has already faded from golden brown (summer lovin’) to pale white to green-like. My boys have started their first runny noses, and you can feel the winter chill in the air fast approaching. We slacked off with our health regime all summer long, because we had the benefits of natural sunlight, the great outdoors, and we ate a ton of fruit. However, with a bunch of kids packed into close quarters at school, for hours on end, it’s only a matter of time before everyone is sick again.
I help busy women (like you!) prioritize self-care so you can experience less stress, more calm and greater joy every day!
