    Welcome back to "Your Dream Life" podcast.

    Today, we're diving into a topic that's perfect for this time of year: the mid-year reset.

    We're nearly halfway through the year, and it's the ideal time to pause, reflect, and reset so the next six months can be your most productive ever.

    In this episode, we'll explore:


    Reflecting on the past six months to understand your progress and challenges.
    Revisiting and revising your dreams and goals to ensure they're still aligned with your values and vision.
    Breaking down big dreams into manageable steps to keep you motivated and on track.
    Creating a productive environment and morning routine to set the tone for success.

    Grab a cup of tea or coffee, find a comfy spot - or take me with you on a walk -  and let's get started on this mid-year reset journey.

    Whether you're focusing on personal or professional goals, or a bit of both, this episode is packed with tips and strategies to help you finish the year strong.

    Listen in to get inspired and take actionable steps towards your dream life - whatever that means for you.

    #261 - Monday Motivation: "The first step towards getting somewhere..."

    Welcome to another short but empowering episode of Monday Motivation, giving you a dose of inspiration as you head into your week...

    Today, we explore a powerful quote by J.P. Morgan:

    Here are three key takeaways you can expect:


    How to honestly assess your current situation and recognize where you are.
    The importance of visualizing your desired destination and creating a vision board.
    The necessity of setting achievable goals and taking consistent action towards your dreams.

    It's a 5min burst of motivation and practical wisdom that will help you embrace the journey towards your dream life. Whatever that means for you 💛

    Take this opportunity to consider how to make bold decisions and commit to your goals.

    As always, I’d LOVE to hear what resonates with you from this episode and what you plan to implement after listening in. So please share and let’s keep the conversation going in the Dream Life Podcast Facebook Group here.

Drifting with dahlias ,

Thank you for your words, and the many introductions.

I’ve been listening to this podcast for as long as it’s been running, and I’m so thankful to have Kristina in my life. I feel like she’s a good friend, and one of my dreams is to meet her one day.

I have found searching for my dream life thought provoking. Since I’ve been building Kristina’s words of wisdom into my life, I’ve found the courage to start my own small micro business (side hustle), continue to study which has just opened my door to a job that I’ve been dreaming of having for years.

None of this has been easy or without challenges, but tuning into this podcast has helped me make sense of the life I want.

Happy, healthy midlife ,

The perfect podcast for me 🙌🏼

Love everything about this podcast, the topics, the guests, the take-always and Kristina’s positive attitude 🖤

xanthe rose ,

New favourite!

I love that the episodes tend to be on the shorter side, a great quick listen but always jam packed with valuable information! 💓
