Have you ever started a self-care routine, like going for walks, only to find yourself too busy to continue?
You set goals, mark your calendar, and even seek accountability, but somehow, something always seems more pressing.
Let’s be honest, while the idea of daily walks is appealing, deep down, you might not view it as crucial.

How do you react when you’re faced with discomfort? I tackle this question with clients multiple times a week. Some dodge discomfort, while others confront it head-on. So, what sets these two groups apart?
Those who sidestep discomfort accumulate emotional pain and dissatisfaction. On the flip side, confronting discomfort paves the way for liberation and true satisfaction. After offering countless coaching sessions, it’s become clear that fear is the common barrier to facing discomfort.
I want to dive into a topic that many high-achieving women like us can relate to: overthinking. It’s that constant loop of thoughts that can take over our minds and steal precious energy. But fear not – I’ve got some insights and strategies to help you manage overthinking and conquer your week with clarity and confidence.
