    Stop Waiting For Confidence, Create it Now

    Stop Waiting For Confidence, Create it Now

    If you don’t have confidence, there’s no doubt that you’re holding yourself back from having the life and marriage you want.

    We often think confidence will come easy once we achieve our goals. We thing that when we’re more fit (or skinny, or curvy, or strong), then we’ll feel more confident.

    But if you wait for your goals to be achieved to embrace total love, appreciation, and trust in yourself … you could be waiting for a very, very long time. And even then, you’re still going to have a human brain that wants to focus on the negative - so it’ll find something else!

    Confidence is a mindset. It is something that can be cultivated and created right now, in the body you have, with the home you have, with the family you have, and yes … even with all of your so-called imperfections.

    And since how you feel about yourself truly does affect how you show up in the world and in your relationships, it’s worth improving now - not later.

    Tune into this episode to learn 3 steps to begin practicing confidence today. And watch the difference in how you start to show up for yourself and in your relationship.

    How To Improve Your Physical Health By Embracing Your Emotions

    How To Improve Your Physical Health By Embracing Your Emotions

    Have you ever made a commitment to make a serious change in your life and then given up on it after a day or two of struggle?
    Of course, you have. You’re a human being with a brain that doesn’t like change or anything uncomfortable. We've all been there - over and over again. 
    So with any shift that you’re serious about making - whether it’s eating healthier, cutting back on alcohol, exercising, or even being more present with your family - your power is found in being willing to feel uncomfortable.
    You also have to be willing to feel all the emotions that you've been unconsciously numbing through the habits you’re trying to break!
    At first, you might feel sadness, loneliness, and frustration, even more, when you begin to step away from the habits that temporarily numb these emotions. 
    In today’s episode, you’ll learn the power of feeling and processing your emotions - and how it’s the only way to successfully achieve your health goals.

    How To Listen To Your Body And Increase Energy

    If you're a woman, you've been socialized to believe that the main reason for getting healthy is to look good in a bikini. You've also been told the lie that you have to be super thin to be healthy.  This puts an enormous amount of pressure on us.

    In today's episode, I share with you how shifting your reason for getting healthy from 'looking good in a bikini' to 'increasing your energy' is the best way to honor and respect your body on a whole new level!

    When You Don't Feel Like Yourself

    When You Don't Feel Like Yourself

    Most of us have a seriously hard time loving and valuing ourselves if we don't feel productive. We tie our worth and lovability to how much we accomplish in a day, a week, a year. 

    So in this episode, I invite you into my inner world this week while I'm recovering from Covid. I was on a forced rest - and my brain was having a fit!

    I didn't feel like myself. I questioned my worth. I even questioned if anything I ever did was any good - from parenting to coaching - my brain catastrophized everything this week. 

    Tune in to learn the 2 most important questions I asked to help me connect with myself again.

    Expansive Growth For Year 2 Of Joyful Love

    Expansive Growth For Year 2 Of Joyful Love

    As I move into year two of the Joyful Love Podcast, I’ll dive even deeper into some of the concepts I’ve just scratched the surface on so far.

    The truth is that our health, energy, and our ability to slow down affects everything we do in life. They affect our relationships and our well-being. They affect our nervous system and our mental health.

    Humans are made up of mind, body, and soul. And I don’t believe I can speak on one of these, without including the others.

    So this year, I’ll dive deep into all three - Mind, Body, and Soul.

    I’m expanding - I’m opening the box WIDE!

    Check out today’s episode to hear how I'm changing things up in my coaching and this podcast.

Part Of It All ,

I remember my worth

Every time I listen to Joyful Love, I’m reminded that it starts with me. I am worthy of love, compassion and kindness. When I remember this first, my relationship with my husband improves. Every time. I will keep listening, every week!

Her Royal Excitedness ,

Perfect Timing

Now that I’m engaged to be married (after getting a divorce four years ago), this podcast is one of the ways I’m staying focused on building a marriage that I LOVE.

Rachael’s wisdom comes from not only what she’s learned but also what she’s lived.

I’ve never met anyone who loves her family with more intention. She is constantly working toward making her relationships the best they can be, and I’m so grateful to have her voice and heart via this podcast!
