    Summer, Shades & Emotional Sunscreen

    Summer, Shades & Emotional Sunscreen

    Aaahhhh, Summer. The sun, the surf, the sandcastles. It’s finally here. Blanket? Check. Shades? Check. Sunscreen? Don’t forget the sunscreen! Can’t forget the sunscreen. A day of bliss can turn into a week of burns!

    Before running for the waves take a sec to ready yourself; both physically and emotionally. Just as you take the time to apply the SPF 9 million this summer, remind yourself the importance of your emotional sunscreen as well. Giving yourself space, ‘coverage’ if you will. Volleyball and bonfires are great but so are quiet walks looking for seashells.

    This episode, Summer, Shades & Sunscreen, I share how to keep from getting the emotional sunburn by taking just a few simple steps you may have overlooked with the sun being so bright.

    We've Been Through a Lot (Last Episode of Season One)

    We've Been Through a Lot (Last Episode of Season One)

    Today's episode is bitter sweet. Bitter in the sense that it's the final episode of Season One but sweet in looking back to see all that we've come through. And don't worry, Season Two will return in September.

    But before you apply the SPF6700 to your nose and snorkle up, I have one tiny favor to ask before you embark the golden days of Summer. Listen in as you and I make a pact agreement with each other before we come back in September.

    Easing Back into Life (Post-Covid)

    Easing Back into Life (Post-Covid)

    What next? Restrictions lifted almost daily as guidances continue to lend a hand towards the world reopening. It’s the hour we’ve all been waiting for. “Getting back to normal” we’ve been saying since March of last year. But suddenly we’re asking ourselves…am I ready? I just settled in. What if I don’t want to go outside, be social, shake hands or even just hug……



    As we were a year ago, we find ourselves in the same position today; new waters. And just because everyone is ready to jump in the pool that doesn’t mean you have to join them this second.

    

Listen in as I share my thoughts about easing in into life post-Covid 19.

    Mental Health Pt. 1 - Depression

    Mental Health Pt. 1 - Depression

    "Sssshhhh!!! Don't talk about it. Nobody wants to hear it.", they say. "But, who's they? And why can't I talk about it?", you ask. 

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States so over the next 4 weeks Calm it Down Podcast will be bringing the conversations from the hushed hallways to the dinner tables. It's time we talk about Mental Health as the illness that it is AND how it can be helped.

    Camp Forgiveness

    Camp Forgiveness

    I can probably sum up one of your worst experiences in 2 words; summer camp. There's no skirting the teenage years without at least one encounter of sweat, blistering heat and obstacle courses.

    And while the memories will forever live in my head, it wasn't until recently I learned a lesson from one and it came from the most unsuspected place. Listen in as we learn a different approach to what forgiveness is really all about.

What a find!

This podcast is exactly what I was looking for! It’s comforting, calming, and to the point. Not too long and not too short, and many of the ideas he talks about seem fresh and new while they are also comforting and familiar. Some of the longer length podcasts feel like the speaker is repeating themselves but this one feels just right. And the music is beautiful

Happiness is a state of mind

I love listening to this podcast when I am getting ready for bed, with my feet in a foot massager. It puts life into perspective and makes it easier to feel at peace after a long day. Plus I love the music so much.
