    Rituals vs. Routines {253}

    Rituals vs. Routines {253}

    We know that routines and habits are really effective - but they sound really dry and practical. They work, but they're certainly not inspiring. What if we reframe some of our daily actions as rituals? A ritual is an action we do repeatedly - but it's infused with meaning (and a bit of magic!) In this episode we'll look at some of the ways you might choose to switch some of your routines to rituals, and how that could bring more mindfulness, meaning and presence to your everyday.

    The Wheel of the Year {250}

    The Wheel of the Year {250}

    Connecting with the natural seasonal cycle where you live is the fundamental practice in my work. In this episode, you'll learn about the Wheel of the Year and begin noticing how the season shows up in your place. We'll explore how living in tune with the natural cycles is something already part of you as a human - it's not so much learning as remembering. Connect to this ancient way of knowing and noticing, something that our ancestors would have done as a regular part of life but we've just forgotten. Use this simple practice to become more mindful, present and connected with nature.

Cathforb ,

Naturopath

Wow. Amanda and her guests are full of great information for "wellpreneurs". I am a naturopath in Canada looking to begin having more of an online presence since I have a narrower score of the clients I want to meet. Her book is also really helpful in gaining insight and focus into what step to take next.

Short & Sweet!

I listen to this podcast daily. I have found every episode to be helpful and full of practical insight and tips that I can apply to my own business. My favorite part is that each interview gets right to the point, and there's no waiting (or fast forwarding) to get to the content. I listen to a lot of business and entrepreneur podcasts in a week, and this is definitely one of my favorites!

I am so happy that I randomly stumbled upon this podcast 2 months ago. This was exactly what I needed to start my 2016! I am graduating from IIN next month and I have found this podcast to be incredibly helpful. It has guided me to take action in building an online coaching business. THANK YOU for all your tips Amanda! <3
