    Leisure Is a Skill

    Leisure Is a Skill

    Leisure isn’t something we tend to value. But pursuing what my husband calls "leisure skills" is crucial for warding off burnout because it helps you be in-- and stay in--the moment.

    Let that Stuff Go Already

    Let that Stuff Go Already

    Something each of us can do to make it so that we don’t get as far as burnout is to let some stuff go. (I feel the need to tell you that I really want to say s-h-i-t right now but I’ve been hearing from a lot of folks lately who listen with their kids so I will keep it clean!)

    Before You Burnout

    There are many things you can do to keep yourself from crossing over in to burnout, which I will get into in the rest of the episodes for this week. But before we jump into solutions, I want to talk about what burnout is and what it's NOT, which is a personal failing.

    Confrontation Nation:Embrace Your Influence

    Confrontation Nation:Embrace Your Influence

    This episode is especially for all my fellow conflict avoiders. And the big idea I want to explore today is that each of us has influence. And when we avoid controversial subjects because we’re afraid of getting into ig, we violate one of the tenets of being a better person, which is to use your power for good.

The BEST way to start my day.

I was so overwhelmed when quarantine first started in March because I wanted to change all in one day. Once I stumbled upon this podcast I noticed I’ve improved SO much. Thank you so much for this Kate!

A favorite way to start the day

This pod has become an ingrained part of my morning ritual. It's a true gift to not only come away with a small, actionable step, but also to feel like part of a bigger movement toward something greater—that I'm doing something in community with other people who also strive toward an improved version of themselves. I think it was brilliant for Kate to use her book material in this way and have told many others about both the book and the pod!

Great Daily Tidbits

Love the little tidbit of advice each day. Kate does a great job applying her advice too everyone. Many times I originally think "doesn't pertain to me" and then suddenly it does! Such simole steps to encourage us to be better about everything!
