The Ultimate Journey of Self-Care

The Ultimate Journey of Self-Care

Self-Care is an area we tend to discount - we believe doing things for ourselves that require time and commitment are luxuries and indulgences which are considered excessive, when it's the ONE THING that can change the game for us in every aspect of our lives. So many things can constitute self-care and everything we do for us is a journey. It's not a one size fits all approach so what works for one person may not work for someone else. Each day we not only learn more about ourselves, but we evolve more into the ultimate creations we are intended to be. When we say yes to us, it's all possible. Tune in each week for real talk about all aspects of self-care: health, fitness, spirituality and mindfulness, travel and leisure, and a whole lot more. Get on your journey of self-care with me and we'll travel the road together. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.... Show More

This episode is from one of our listeners as she shares her story and as an entrepreneur, I have shared in this space about my own personal journey in self care and my tendency to work more and pay less attention to myself--even as a fitness professional.


We are our own worst critics--and we never work harder and more spirited than when we report to ourselves. My guest is a fellow entrepreneur and coach--Marsha Gleit -- who found he...

So what really IS the best way to approach fitness and activity?

If you google that, you’ll get THOUSANDS of ideas likely. And since we are in the LAST quarter of the year, you may be wondering if reaching your fitness goals is even still possible, with the holidays arriving in a little over 2 months time.


So much of our energy goes to the thought around ‘we don’t have time’. What’s really beneath that is what is keeping us from work...

‘Functional Fitness’ is a term that’s used a lot these days. Function IS purpose--and purpose IS what we do in our daily lives. And when we use the same moves we do in our daily lives for our fitness plans--we make it an EASY way to do us. The whole dilemma of it being ‘ too hard’ is solved.


In this episode, I explain my take on what functional fitness is, how I teach it, and how it is THE answer to all you do in your own training. ...

Did you know there are ‘seasons of connection’ when it comes to self care?

Like the weather, seasons can signify a new start, a time to rest, a time to protect and a time to rejuvenate. How we do us is in a sense like a cycle of seasons. This episode is a closer look at a unique way of examining where your own self care is high and yet where it needs attention.


My guest is Leanne Kabot, a national writer, author and speaker--and the ...

This episode features someone from our audience that reached out and wanted to share her story. For so many people, fitness itself is what teaches us HOW not just to do US better, but HOW to live our lives better.


It could be showing you a better way forward, or simply giving you a new idea or solution to a problem. And it more often than not, helps you strengthen your confidence AND your resolve to KEEP GOING.

Did you know that you can strength train from the inside? Yep, even around your pelvic floor and bladder!


Honest question----ever laugh really hard and suddenly feel like you are about to pee in your pants? What about sneezing? Don’t laugh, but there IS a training for that. Look, as we get older we literally need to think about HOW we train HOW our body works, as well as training our muscles and just moving our body.

Sleep and dreams can tell us a lot about ourselves, and what we are either facing, or what we have in our subconscious mind. Dream experts have said for years that a lot of the kinds of dreams we have are indicative and reflective of challenges and problems we are facing in our own lives in disguise.


Holly Emmerson is a Dream Oracle, and has an amazing ability to connect with spirits in the dream world for her clients--and in so doi...

Do you ever blame yourself for what you THINK you should have done differently?


This often presents itself in the form of negative self talk and our mind listens to it. It’s called SHAME and it's a human condition--which often shows up in the other areas of our lives to keep us from reaching our goals.


Listen in to my candid conversation with my guest about not only what SHAME is, but HOW it can either hold us back, or help us de...

Do you ever stop and pay attention to your thoughts? Like really pay attention to them?

We think in excess of 50,000 thoughts in one day easily--the majority of them are either similar or repetitive. And some we don’t even remember (obviously). And like how we teach in a fitness program, the goal is to get efficient and effective at what you do WELL so you can see benefit. This in turn saves you time, energy and produces the results...

Look all around the world today and everything is doom and gloom, hard line news and 100% serious stuff.

I recently had the privilege of interviewing national mindfulness coach, podcast host and certified trauma and addiction professional Riane Milne and our chat was eye opening on many levels.

How often do we get stuck in our current patterns based on where we have been in the past?  Our past experiences largely shape our mindset and beliefs and can either be a teacher to us, or hold us back.

We teach that your past is a neutral circu...

Ever wonder about which supplements and products are worth investing in?

I get asked all the time questions like ‘what should I buy at WholeFoods’ or ‘Which vitamins are the best? And the truth is that a lot of what is on the market is not worth the packaging it comes in.

We want quick fixes as a society--and if we think something will be too hard or too lengthy to do, we want an easier way. There is no fast track to success for us--...

Sugar--Some people love it. Some are addicted to it. Some can’t live without it. At the root of so many health problems today---from heart disease, to Type II Diabetes to chronic pain and inflammation--our addiction to sugar has not only skyrocketed, but has become a part of life.

It’s a habit that we KNOW we have, but if we take time to dive a little deeper, we find that it is connected to a great deal about how our bodies function...

Since #covid19 became part of all our lives 3-3.5 months ago, there has been INFINITE talk about safety and protection in the battle against disease and illness.

Very little of this discussion has centered around our front line of defense--our immune system.


And probably the BEST WAY to help strengthen your immune system is a daily regimen of functional activity, energy eating and developing skills to help you manage your mindset.

This episode is a chat with a close friend of mine--she is also a fellow fitness professional--but our chat today centers more around her personal journey--of navigating her time for herself.

As the ones to help others lead a healthier and better life for themselves, it is important we always be to examine what we do ourselves each day. One day at at time, is the mantra my colleague Peach Meek says. Listen in to this one.

This episode is a real gem--and it’s a closer look at how gratitude can help us find joy and peace in times of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm.

This conversation is with a fellow coach--and ‘recovering attorney’ Heather Moulder. Self care means different things to different people--and Heather’s story is different--mainly because she explains what she had to change in her own life to be in alignment with how she delivers her message.
