We hear about how we should get more exercise, sleep, etc. And while mastering those basic things is important, our lives and self-confidence aren’t going to radically shift if we just stop there.
It’s time we take it a step further, and tie in one element that I find is missing from the typical self-care conversation – SELF COMPASSION.
The truth is, there’s always more to do, and more to achieve, whether it be at work or in our personal lives. Heck, if we’re too tough on ourselves, even our personal development and self-care journies can become stressful as well.
That’s why today I'm diving deep into self-compassion. Listen in as I share the mantra that I’ve adopted that helps me stay rooted in self-compassion, “good enough.” So, fellow high-achievers, grab your sticky notes and jot that mantra down and press play, we’re in this journey together!

If you answered, "It's been way too long." I get it. We hear so much about self-love and self-care on social media, it's easy just to scroll past and overlook the impact a solid self-love practice can have on our lives.
But, when it comes to adopting a non-diet approach, leaning into self-love is an absolute must. Besides, Intuitive eating is where self-love and self-care meet science.
Listen in today as I share 10 habits of self-love that every woman should adopt. Think of this episode as a little checklist for your week, and as you're listening, pick 1-2 steps you're going to focus on taking this week!

Not to mention the mindset side of things. So often, we beat ourselves up for not being as advanced as we once were.
This can be especially difficult for those dealing with chronic illness. Sometimes health issues can make it impossible to maintain the progress we've made in our fitness journies and that can feel quite discouraging.
So, if you're feeling discouraged on your fitness journey, whether it's due to chronic illness or another circumstance, the question that remains is: How can we learn to give ourselves permission to start over WITHOUT shame?
Today, I'm bringing my friend and co-worker Shelby Graves, CPT on the show to unpack just that.
Shelby is a Personal Trainer, Powerlifter, and Ulcerative Colitis patient located in Indianapolis, IN. Listen in as she dives deep into her own journey with Ulcerative Colitis. Plus, hear her perspective on strength training and how she has learned to fall in love with the process of being a beginner in fitness at certain stages.
