Season Changes, Time of Harvest & Celebrations - 2019

As the weather turns cooler, the leaves of the trees surrounding my house are turning brown and when I walk my cutie-pie dog, Swift, the ground is starting to be covered with leaves… This is my favourite time of year, when the air cools and becomes fresh while we all bundle up and start wearing our winter boots, scarves, sweaters and jackets. (I also love spring, for the new beginnings and promise as things start to open & bloom)

At each change of the season, I take time to reflect on the past chapter and set intentions for the new season. I shared with you already a bit about this in my previous email/post about setting intentions. Today, I’d like to share with you an exercise I do to reflect on the past season and celebrate all the learning, experiences and accomplishments!
 
3 Easy Steps to Celebrate the Season

1. Reflect: This is where you take time with your favourite journal and a delicious cup of tea (since...

A New Season – A New You! Setting Your Autumn Intentions - 2019

As we enter into the new fall season, what are you focusing on?

For years now, I have been setting goals and intentions seasonally.

I always split up my focus and effort by the seasons since each season has its own energy and focus.

The summer was full of fun, holidays, entertaining and just lounging in the sun or getting outside. While the fall is more focused on regular routines, more time inside and focusing on working now that everyone is "back to school/work."

My past summer 2019 was focused on getting healthy & strong so I could transition back to work after a year and a half on sick leave without pay at home. Fortunately, with all the time off to focus on my health & recovery for a "tune-up", I was finally able to return to work this Sep!

And with the improvement of my health this past summer, we finally got pregnant after trying for 2 years! So my summer was also focused on growing the baby and taking care of myself with this new "project" <3

How to Master Your MINDSET - Top 5 Most Common Mindset Traps & How to Instantly Get Unstuck!

For years, even as a new coach, I knew that the inner perspectives someone held would greatly influence their ability to reach their goals, have positive interactions with others and enjoy life. Or not.

But it was only 2 years ago when I joined the online coaching communities that I discovered there was actually a term for all of that. Mindset.

And I also discovered that there were coaches out there that specialized in mindset!

So I realized that my actual specialty is around mindset. Sure I help others switch up their schedule to have more time and energy. Plus, I am an expert in leadership and business as well. But truly, the more I thought about it and coached more leaders across the globe, I saw that the inner mindset piece was the most POWERFUL part that could create MASSIVE TRANSFORMATION!

When the mindset piece was strong, the leadership, business and impact pieces could be changed up way more easily. But when it was struggling or stuck, the other areas suffered too!

How to Set Up Weekly Systems for Success

How to tune into a powerfully positive mindset, confident and big-picture visionary before heading into each week for the most joy, ease and fun along the way!

Often we can get caught up in the momentum of life, reacting to issues, challenges, last-minute to-do's and putting out fires in our work and personal lives. But this goes against living with intention, consciously creating our lives and leading with vision, clarity and purpose.

To consciously create our lives and lead our businesses and organizations, we need to slow down and re-connect with our vision, goals and purpose regularly.

Setting time each week to do this will help you stay connected and aligned with your goals & dreams so you can live and lead with intention!

Daily Systems for Success

So today I woke up to a cloudy and rainy day which isn't a big deal but was definitely different than the past few weeks of hot summer weather we've been having lately.

Plus, I was tired from minimal sleep last night and feeling groggy and a bit off my usual positive energy.

So this is where the power of daily routines & habits come in.

On autopilot, I got up at our regular 6am time, made the bed, got dressed & made a healthy breakfast. Sat down with my husband for some quality time over tea & coffee before he headed off to work for the day. Then I spent a bit of time cleaning up the kitchen, doing dishes and shining the sink. At that point there was a choice, to follow the rest of my morning routine or climb back into bed...

 

What Should You Do Every Day?

Well, this is really up to you to decide what is most important, what habits or skills you're adding to your life, what your priorities are, areas you are succeeding and areas that may need some additional...

The Key Systems for Success That You Need!

I was originally going to wait to write about systems until the fall when everyone is ready to get back into work mode after the holidays.

But I decided to share it all with you now, at the beginning of the summer. Because if you're able to apply and create one new system in your work or personal life, then it will be there ready for you when things ramp up again in September.

So until then, I encourage you to pick one or two areas to focus on over the summer to benefit from the gains you'll make in streamlining your process and building a system you can follow during the rest of the year!

 

How will setting up success systems make a difference in my career and business results?

 

I share these to inspire you to see areas where you may be able to uplevel your performance and overall energy, efficiency and happiness!

When you put in a system (and follow it!) then you gain from the process already being laid out for you, you just follow in the footsteps of the path you've...

Creating Your Successful Meditation Plan

Have you ever tried to meditate but have never been able to stick with it?

Or have you had big intentions of adding meditation to your daily routine at the beginning of a year or season or after a yoga class but not sure how to make the time?

Or perhaps you just don't know where you'll fit it in?

This is the point I find most new meditators get stuck.

So they meditate once or twice but don't manage to fit it into their lifestyle so they don't create a habit or routine and then they miss out on ALL the incredible benefits of a regular meditation practice. 

And then it gets forgotten among other priorities of life and any benefit that could have been gained gets lost and overtaken with daily stressors, to-dos and sometimes even bad habits without healthy habits to offset the strain and drain of work and life. 

The step that new meditators forget is creating a PLAN of how they'll fit it into their life. 

So this article will walk you through creating a plan using some...

Are You Mentally Fit? How to Start Your Own Meditation Practice!

Many people understand the importance of having a fit and strong body for overall well being and health.

They can even see the correlation between having a fit body and being more productive at work, better able to focus, and being a better leader. 

It is even commonly known how much a difference having a healthy and fit body can have on mental and emotional health.

But what about mental fitness?

So many leaders I know prioritize their physical health but do nothing for their mental health. 

They can get stuck in "survival mode" which impacts everything they touch by imbuing it with a sense of anxiety and rushing. 

But I believe all leaders and all people everywhere can find a place in their lives where they are in "thrive mode" where their impact and influence in their lives has a sense of possibility, creativity, inspiration and fun!

And the best way I've found in my 20+ years of leadership and management has been by focusing on building your mental fitness through...
