    92 | Make Mindfulness Work for You + How to Prepare for Your Level-Up with Dora Kamau

    What does mindfulness mean to you? Do you integrate mindfulness into your daily routine?

    I have my moments of calmness and I have my moments of not being calm. It’s all a part of the human experience. Mindfulness is about understanding how to leverage certain tools to bring you back to a state of calmness and zen.

    Don’t feel guilty about not being calm and centered all the time because we are all human. We are all living a different human experience unique to us. But how can we incorporate mindfulness into our routines as a way to guide us and bring us back to center?

    Has the past year got you feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Our brains are running on overload, we are not motivated, and we’re mentally and physically exhausted.

    This week on the podcast, we are diving into all things burnout with Erayna Sargent. Erayna is sharing her personal experience with burnout and how she navigated her path to recovery.

    90 | Small Daily Habits That Make a Big Difference For Your Well-Being

    How do you start your day? How do you end your day? What are a few things that you do daily, weekly, or even monthly to help yourself feel energized, rested, and vibrant?

    These questions are more complicated than you think because not a lot of people really think about their daily habits and routines. We go through each day in such a rush that we forget to pause and evaluate the things we are doing or the actions we are taking every day. Are they serving us?

    In today’s episode, I am talking about habits related to your well-being. I've really been reflecting on some of the habits that have kept me going and also things that I think promote longevity for all of us.

Lessons on burnout

I love listening to Les and get a life take away each time I listen. My most recent listen was the episode about burnout with Erayana Sargent. Definitely gained clarity and some tips on how to alleviate some of the ills I’ve experienced from burnout lately. Thanks Les for guiding us on this journey of bringing more balance into our lives.

It nice to feel like your not alone and how you feeling is completely normal but here’s some tips to help and she personally tried them it feels like I’m talking to a girlfriend which is nice because a lot of my “friends “ have fell off during the pandemic I feel alone as a woman(I’m happily engaged but I don’t feel like that’s enough)she makes me feel understood ❤️
