SOS Cultivating Balance Part 1

E18-SOS-CultivatingBalancePt.1

Let’s face it, women wear too many hats and it can drive us crazy if we’re not careful. This series was inspired by my own struggles to keep my sanity during our move from CA to TX. Sometimes, I tried to keep my head over a sea of “to do” lists. It left me exhausted. Can you relate?

There have been many learnings during these past months. The one that stands with truth is: In order to get things done, effectively, we’ve got to cultivate balance. Why? Because it soothes the soul and gives us power to get going with purpose.

On today’s episode, we’ll discuss the acronym SOS and how it can help us cultivate balance.

What we Discuss:

  • Why self-care is not selfish
  • What organizing our thoughts and ordering our physical space does for our soul
  • What it means to choose the “better part” to create space for the sacred

3 Steps to Shift from a Negative to a Positive Perspective

Episode4.What'sAttitudeGotToDoWithItpngHave you ever wondered why sometimes you may remember, in great detail, the negative things someone says or does?

Here’s the deal, we may linger over specifics and hold on to the words someone said for hours or even days. As we continue this pattern of holding on to these thoughts, it begins to manifest as part of our “personality” – we may even begin to be on the pessimistic (wink, wink) negative side.

On today’s episode, we discuss how to move past a negative outlook to a more positive perspective. I share three steps that will help you make a brain shift from a negative mindset to one that is empowered by Christ.

What we discuss:

  • What is the “Negativity Bias”
  • Why quantity matters over quality
  • 3 Steps to begin the shift from a negative to a positive perspective
