    118 - Slowing Down & Putting Joy at the Top of Your To-Do List ft. Ashley Looker

    118 - Slowing Down & Putting Joy at the Top of Your To-Do List ft. Ashley Looker

    For the first time in 2020, I’m interviewing on the Take Back Your Damn Life podcast and I’m grateful to be interviewing a new friend (and neighbor), Ashley Looker!

    Ashley has many of the monikers that so many of us achievers do - recovering perfectionist, productivity junkie, likes to be busy, etc. She gets that—like so many of us do—we get caught up in the rat race of our lives. Today she tells her story and shares her experiences of how slowing down and making joy a priority can be absolute game-changers.

    I’m so excited to share this interview with you, the first of 2020!

    117 - 3 Tips to Help You Work LESS & LIVE More

    117 - 3 Tips to Help You Work LESS & LIVE More

    Us high-achieving? We're queens of overwork, overwhelm, and over-commitment?

    We identify so much with our work, get so much validation from our productivity, and identify so much with our achievement that we can struggle to stop working. But what does that lead to...


    10-12 hour workdays...
    A 7-day work week...
    Vacations that, well, never happen...

    And what does all that lead to? Burnout and lives with no room for living, having fun, and enjoying our hobbies and passions.

    In today's episode, you'll get 3 easy tips for working less and living more. These tips will help you create greater boundaries in your life, greater separation from your work, and more time to do all the things (other than your job) that make you YOU! It may not be easy...but it's necessary!

    116 - But, How's Your Sleep? - Easy Sleep Tips that WORK

    𝗕𝘂𝘁...𝗵𝗼𝘄'𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗹𝗲𝗲𝗽?

    My teenage students HATE when I ask them this question...but it's so damn necessary.

    Cuz the burnout? The relentless work? The never stop, never quit, do do do, go go go, burn the candle at both ends shit that we ALL do? We learn that as early as our teens...

    And I've been rewriting shit sleep patterns and habits for the better part of a decade. But I'm having this conversation with you now because - even after re-reading the AMAZING book "Sleep Smarter" this summer - I'd forgotten about the necessity of sleep...

    After running my body ragged this past month, I'm being reminded that sleep is essential for...

    👉🏻A strong immune system

    👉🏻Repair and rejuvenation when you've run yourself ragged

    👉🏻Memory and focus

    👉🏻And SO much more!

    In today's podcast episode, I'm talking about easy sleep tips that work and that you can implement TONIGHT when your head hits the pillow!

    #115 - How to BOUNCE BACK from a SH**** Month

    #115 - How to BOUNCE BACK from a SH**** Month

    AUGUST WAS CRAP. Was it just me?

    I didn’t feel productive. I didn’t feel motivated. I didn’t feel focused. I didn’t feel…any of the things I usually feel as a high-achieving person. And it sucked to look back at the month of August and realize.

    So, as I was doing my monthly review last night, I found myself wondering - how can I bounce back? How can I find my motivation again? How can I get myself back on track?

    In today’s podcast, I’m going to share with you 3 tips for bouncing back from a shit month. They’re tips I’ve used in the past and tips I’m using right now to help get me back to my high-achieving self and make September ONE FOR THE BOOKS! Enjoy!

    114 - 5 Things to STOP DOING to Take Back Your Life

    114 - 5 Things to STOP DOING to Take Back Your Life

    "𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝗵𝗶𝘁 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹𝘀 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼-𝗱𝗼!!" .

    I get that impulse. That hesitation. When it feels like all this coach-y, self-help-y 💩 is just adding more to-dos into your busy AF life.

    But, what if I told you that burnout and boundaries can be just as much (if not MORE) about what you STOP doing as what you START?

    I feel like so often in the self-help and personal growth space, it can feel like a laundry list and it can feel irritating at times because we already have a lot of shit on our plate! Hell, we’re high-achievers…we ADD those things to our plate to feel that high of productivity.

    But my goal in this podcast episode is to give you 5 tips…5 TANGIBLE THINGS…that will free you up, give you space, and allow you time to have more YOU in your life!

    113 - Self-Care for High-Achievers

    113 - Self-Care for High-Achievers

    When I say "self-care" what do you think of? How do you feel about that?

    Do you grimace, thinking "oh dear God, another item on my to-do list"? Do you catch yourself thinking, "um...I don't need this! I'm already a badass"?

    I get it. I used to think of weight loss, pant sizes, and all that physical shit when people talked about self-care.

    But what if I were to tell you that there are some fundamental misconceptions not only about what self-care is, its benefits, and why you - yes, you - as a high-achiever need it in your life?

    Before I tell you what this episode is, let me tell you what it isn't. It isn't me listing off all the self-care activities you "should" do. I don't know you and I don't know your life. So that would be BS anyway. It also isn't an episode where I belabor you on why you need self-care in your life. No, this episode is something different.

    In today's podcast, I'm going to give you 4 tips about self-care as a high-achiever. These 4 tips are meant to help you change your mindset around and your approach toward self-care.

Ellyn is a force to be heard

I have consumed a LOT of personal development and been around people within the industry closely (I too work in personal development) and very few are as great as Ellyn. She delivers when it comes to content. She shows up 110% to ensure you’re getting the best of the best from her. You can FEEL off her how much she wants to help you and the information she delivers is top-notch.

AWESOME Podcast

This is SUCH a great podcast! I highly recommend it. Ellyn keeps it real with her listeners and offers motivation and inspiration in every episode. What I love about Ellyn is that she's not afraid to take the bull by the horns and GET IT DONE! She's honest and has so much knowledge about how to create the life you DESIRE.
