    Beat Burn Out With These 5 Steps | Ep 47

    Beat Burn Out With These 5 Steps | Ep 47

    How many women out there feel depleted, exhausted, and overwhelmed by the end of the day, only to then realize that you soon have to go to bed and repeat it all again the next day.

    This happens to so many of us because, as women, we naturally put the needs of everyone else before our own, and don’t carve out time or space to take care of ourselves. 

    The problem is that you actually DO have time to take better care of yourself, but you’re likely filling these moments with things that do NOTHING for your soul. Things like scrolling social media, checking emails, or catching up on the many things you “should” be doing. 

    The key is developing a personalized plan for YOU so that you can fill these pockets of time with things that bring you joy and energy. 

    Now you might be thinking “Melissa, I don’t have time for self-care.”

    I hear you…but true self-care does NOT have to take much time! 

    If you can carve out 5 minutes every single day (and I know you can!), you can use what I call the Connection Code to fill your cup and stop ending your days on empty. 

    In this episode I’m going to break down the Connection Code, and help you make 5 minutes feel like you spent hours taking care of yourself.

    Not sleeping? Try this! w/Sleep Expert Mollie Eastman | Ep 46

    Not sleeping? Try this! w/Sleep Expert Mollie Eastman | Ep 46

    If you’re having trouble with sleep…whether it’s hard to fall asleep, you wake up a lot, or just don’t feel rested the next day, it’s so common these days for people to struggle with sleep. 

    Why is that, and what can we do about it?

    In this episode I get to interview Mollie Eastman, creator of Sleep Is A Skill and the host of the Sleep Is A Skill Podcast, and we’re going to dive into all things sleep. 

    So if that’s you and you struggle with sleep, or you’re looking to optimize and maximize your sleep, this episode is for you!

    We are going to discuss things that get in the way of good sleep, as well as tips and tools that you can apply amidst your “real life” where you can't do everything perfectly or control every scenario.

    Even if you think good sleep just isn’t possible for you, Mollie says differently! As someone who always struggled with sleep and thought that’s how it will always be, she understands first-hand how challenging this can be. 

    But after years of research and a lot of trial and error, Mollie has drastically improved her own sleep, as well as the sleep of so many others.

    There are many things the average person can do to influence their sleep results, and good sleep IS possible for you!

    So if you’re ready to learn about the science of sleep and how good sleep is actually a skill that you can develop, let’s dive in!

    Reinventing Yourself As A Woman | Ep 45

    Reinventing Yourself As A Woman | Ep 45

    Do you ever feel selfish for wanting to take better care of yourself? 

    If you’re like a lot of women I know, you probably often take care of everyone else first, neglecting your own needs and desires. 

    I don’t know about you, but this is my default mode, and it’s EXHAUSTING!

    And if you’re like me and the other women I talk to, you may also feel guilty at times for even WANTING something more or better. Maybe your life isn’t all that bad, but there’s still a longing for something more, like there’s something else for you out there.

    Whether you’re aware of it or not, women all have this inner voice, this inner self that talks to us throughout the day. And over time, for whatever reason many of us have stopped listening to her. 

    In this episode, I'm going to teach you how to tap into that inner knowing and listen to what it's saying. 

    We’ll also learn how to take action on what comes up for you and REINVENT yourself as a woman to become more balanced, happy, joyful, and fulfilled. 

    By taking time to tap into this inner guidance & intuition and actually DOING what lights your soul on fire, you’ll be better able to show up as your best self in all areas of your life. 

    You DESERVE to carve this time out for yourself, to create the life you want. Recognize that it's okay to love your life and be happy with the roles that you play in it AND know that there's more out there for you!

    From Rushed to Rejuvenated: Do These 3 Daily Self-Care Practices | Ep 44

    From Rushed to Rejuvenated: Do These 3 Daily Self-Care Practices | Ep 44

    I don't know about you, but one of my measures for how well I'm taking care of myself is how much I'm triggered, upset, or stressed out by things that happen in the outside environment (like traffic). 

    Can you relate?  🙋‍♀️

    So if you’re a woman running around doing all the things and you absolutely know that you've got to take better care of yourself, but you have no idea how you're going to fit it in because you're doing all the things, this is the video for you. 

    By the end of this episode, you are going to have three self-care practices that you can do daily. And the best part is, they’re easy, quick, and effortless to implement.

    In fact, you can even do these things while you're juggling work, tasks around the home, taking care of your children, or any of the other billion things that you do in a day. 

    I’m a busy mom of three, AND I help run multiple companies. There was a time when my health really suffered and I had to come up with strategies that I could use in my daily life to help make sure I was filling my cup while I was running around doing everything for everybody else.

    In this episode I'm going to share the three tools that helped me turn things around and transform my life from rushed to rejuvenated.

    Also, at the end of the episode, I am going to pass along a free gift to you that's going to help you implement these things and get yourself feeling more balanced, peaceful, and experience a state of ease throughout your day.

    NOT Doing This For Ourselves Can Actually Harm Others | Ep 42

    NOT Doing This For Ourselves Can Actually Harm Others | Ep 42

    Not speaking up for yourself and what you want, need, and believe doesn’t just hurt you, but can hurt other people. 

    You aren’t doing this to be selfish. It’s actually what enables you to take good care of the people you love. And without it, you’ll crash and burn and usually take others down with you. 

    Today I want to share a true story with you that illustrates this idea perfectly. 

    It’s a powerful story that can create a bridge to completely change this for you in those situations where you're faced with either speaking up for yourself or staying quiet. 

    I hope it will help you pause and remember that it’s not just you and your well-being that’s on the line here, but other’s well-being as well.

    So it’s not selfish. It’s self-less. 

    Strengthening this ability will help you start living a life out of your design rather than someone else's. Living a life that we choose rather than one we have to run away and escape from. 

    So join me in this episode if you’re ready to move from a state of stress, anxiety, feeling spread too thin, and maybe angry, resentful, or lonely, to a state of more ease, calm, balance, and joy in your life.
