A quick check-in for my Introverted Folk.
Happy countdown to the end of 2019 season!
Family, friends, social gatherings galore...
Many of my clients are introverts, and this is not necessarily a set-up for success.
This post provides some tips to help ease that post-Turkey holiday hangover as we dive right in to the holiday death-spiral. Wheeeeeee!
As the lovely Miranda would say, "Such fun!".
So put on those elastic waist trousers, enjoy your feast, and read on for tips to make it through the resulting hangover before the spiral gets tighter!
A quick exercise to focus attention and start again!
How is everyone feeling today?
The weather has definitely shifted towards winter and I was not prepared this year.
Usually I celebrate the gray and the chill because it leads me to cozy blankets and tea.
But my heater is possibly broken and I just couldn't get warm.
A cold Andrea is a grumpy Andrea...
Wanna know what my least favourite 4-letter-word is?
I am a big believer that being nice is a negative action.
It doesn't do anyone any favours.
Nice is the very often the cause of anxiety...
As you may have guessed from reading my other posts recently, I love Autumn.
As much as I love the hint of chill in the air and the call to appreciate hibernation, it sometimes can lead to a decline in productivity.
That call to rest is strong these days.
All the hygge possibilities are calling my name...
Isn't Autumn delicious?
The changing colours, the slight chill in the air, the call to cozy and warmth.
Bring on the sweaters and scarves, I say!
With less than 100 days left in this decade (!), I want to invite you to bring attention to the harvest of wonderful fruit that you planted this year (and this decade!)...
A QUICK EXERCISE TO GROW (AND HAVE SOME FUN).
Happy Friday the 13th Lovelies!
As a day that is said to be unlucky (although I am having an amazing day), let's dive into the topic of growing pains.
What to do when the push to grow comes not from our choosing.
Those outside forces and friction that require us to change and adapt.
When it feels like the universe is raining down on us and we are barely treading water as is.
I feel you.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?
This post is also titled: What to do when things get ugly.
Do you feel flooded with futility?
Disconnect. Why bother. Negativity?
Sometimes, when things don't go according to plan.
Or worse, when the plan is thwarted by factors outside our control, it is easy to take a trip to distortion-land.
Intend. Act. Repeat. Ugh.
I have a big exciting project that I want to be working on, but resistance is strong today.
So much resistance!
I feel like a kid who has been assigned an essay to write.
I have the framework. I have the outline. I even have the paragraph topic sentences.
But when I sit down to hammer out the word count - BOOM - resistance.
"Oh I need a cup of tea!" It says.
"You know what's a good idea? Snack time."
Renewing your purpose with grace and ease!
I love September.
The almost-Autumn feel of the mornings, the organizational pull of back-to-school season, and the lower UV index so I can get out and enjoy Mr Sun (you can't be this shade of porcelain and not be roasted in the summer).
Back to school has been a part of my life since I was 3...
How to reconnect in a broken world when everything seems useless.
This summer has had some rough patches for many of us it seems.
What do we do when our efforts seem to lead us to failure?
This post is intended to bring a bit of grace into the process.
Tea loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
