    78: Could You Go 5 Days Without Talking? Learning Mindfulness with Joree Rose

    78: Could You Go 5 Days Without Talking? Learning Mindfulness with Joree Rose

    Today I’m joined by Joree Rose, a marriage and family therapist to talk about how mindfulness can help you solve almost any issue and how you can use mindfulness strategies and practices in your own life. She also chats with me about creating a life of meaning and joy. 
    Growing up in a traumatic childhood, Joree carried around anxiety and fear for many years, which made her dependent on others and prevented her from growing. “For so many years, fear and anxiety drove my decisions.”
    When she realized she was living in fear, she quickly decided to change her mindset to live in alignment with the mindset values she was teaching at the time. Joree recognized that she had to stop believing every thought that crossed her mind, and she would need to shift her belief that the future is scary.
    Listen in to discover how she decided to surrender to gain awareness of her life, the toolset she used to change her life, and how to live your life more mindfully.


    Show Highlights
    [02:30] How she decided to become a marriage and family therapist.
    [07:11] Deciding to quit moving forward with her clinical hours to have children.
    [14:00] Getting out of expectations and “shoulds” and tuning into your true essence.
    [20:24] How Joree defines mindfulness and the practice of mindfulness.
    [30:04] Conquering the “what if” demons - what to do to avoid this mindset so you can flourish.

    77: Finding Passion In Your Career

    77: Finding Passion In Your Career

    You’ve probably heard the saying that if you find something you’re passionate about, you’ll never work a day in your life. Although this sounds like a two-step process, finding your passion isn’t always easy. On this episode you’ll learn an alternative path to finding your passion.
    When I first enrolled in University I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. By chance I took an introduction to neuropsychology course and was hooked! Listen in to hear the story of my amazing professor and how I found my love of neuroscience. 
    Although it often seems like people just “know” when they find their passion, by studying successful people we’ve learned it can take years to develop a passion. And it can be tempting to give up on your dreams when you face challenges, before you give your brain a chance to learn that passion! 
    Listen in to find out how to train your brain to find your passion, the difference between interest and passion, and why passion isn’t a magic moment in time.


    Show Highlights
    [01:33] How I decided on my passion for life and what I wanted to do as a career.
    [05:07] Why we shouldn’t ‘just know’ our passion and career from the start.
    [08:57] Your brain becomes more interested in things when you put more time into them. 
    [11:24] Listen to my previous episode on grit and how it can help you reach your goal.
    [12:43] Progress is motivating for your brain.

    74: Are You Busy or Productive?

    74: Are You Busy or Productive?

    Are you spending time on tasks that aren’t taking you closer toward your goals? Find out if everything on your to-do list is productive work or if you’re adding items to your list that only keep you busy, leaving you stressed out and overwhelmed.

    Find out how you can go through the process of a productivity audit, why you need to throw away the guilt that comes with being busy, and how to know if the work you’re doing daily is busy work.


    Show Highlights
    [01:34] My first experience with a time audit 
    [02:23] Focusing on one task gives you the best productivity outcome.
    [03:55] Unproductive work can be tiring and zap our motivation.
    [04:51] How to know if the work you’re doing is busy work.
    [07:40] Why busy work is more fun and why it’s easy to fall into the busy work trap.
    [09:59] Reviewing your data to see where you’re wasting time.

    73: Why You Need a To-Do List Detox with Murielle Marie

    We’re here with business coach Murielle Marie to talk about how to get out of the habit of relentless productivity and how to set goals for ourselves. Murielle is a mentor to the unconventional and is a passionate multi-creative with over two decades of entrepreneurial experience.
    Growing up, she saw her father working all day and night and thought that was what she needed to do - constantly stay busy! However, after both her parents passed away - within five weeks of each other - she stepped back to do some soul searching and realized that she never figured out what she wanted to do for herself.
    Studying philosophy at university, Murielle became interested in the mind and psychology, specifically, why humans choose to do what they do. Now in her coaching business she strives to help others find out their why, make decisions, and take action on their decisions.
    Find out how you can avoid inheriting dreams from others, how you can look for and find what you really want in life, and why you need to get uncomfortable to change your behavior.


    Show Highlights
    [02:28] How Murielle became a business coach and her entrepreneurial background.
    [04:12] In her past, she did things that she thought she should be doing.
