    Reflections and Time-Hacks for the Nearly Burnt Out

    Reflections and Time-Hacks for the Nearly Burnt Out

    Because BUSY is a drug many of us are unconsciously addicted to, we choose to act on things that may or may not make a meaningful impact. We spend our time instead of investing it. During this season of going back to school and juggling a million and one things in the middle of a pandemic, it's too easy to get sucked into the swirl of it all and burn completely out. Today's episode invites you to pause, reflect and consider "is what I'm choosing to do right now an action or an impact?" Being deliberate with how we invest our time, energy and attention IS our competitive edge.

    Episode 276: Moving Through Life with Grace & Grit An Episode for 3 Special People in My Life

    Episode 276: Moving Through Life with Grace & Grit An Episode for 3 Special People in My Life

    Last week someone gave me a beautiful compliment that brought tears to my eyes and resonated deep in my soul, all while reminding me of my Nanny and inspiring me to BE grace and grit for my daughters. Today's episode is about moving through life with grace and grit - through the joys, tears, triumphs and trials - finding our way to be both simple elegance and rugged determinism in pursuit of what our heart calls us towards. This is not an easy journey but it sure is a worthwhile one. This episode is dedicated to my grandmother Nanny who was the total embodiment of grace and grit and to my daughters Joy and Coral who I hope will choose grace and grit as they journey through life.

    Step into your life with an EYES WIDE OPEN approach 👀.

    Episode 273: Four Things Your Future Self Is Begging You to Give Up

    Episode 273: Four Things Your Future Self Is Begging You to Give Up

    On the road to becoming who we choose to be, we often focus on what we have to start or do to get there, and rarely, if ever, consider what we have to give up along the way. Quitting things is absolutely part of winning at our futures. On today's episode, learn the four things to give up or change in order to create your desired future, and hear how I gave up my most treasured morning ritual to support the energy of becoming my future self.

    Episode 272: Awaiting Results: Being Psychologically Flexible In Scary Uncertainty

    Episode 272: Awaiting Results: Being Psychologically Flexible In Scary Uncertainty

    Cold symptoms 10 days after a hospital visit with my daughter + a low grade fever had me get tested for COVID-19 early this week. The onset of the symptoms, and where my mind went after that was NOT a place I want to spend a lot of time (way worse than a dark alley in the middle of the night!). I was in and out of full-fledged fear over the course of the next 12-18 hours. BUT because I take excellent care of myself, my heart and my mind, I was able to bounce back (aka be psychologically flexible) and use my tools to be OK and find joy, laughter and peace in the now, even while being physically isolated from my daughters (& the rest of the world). On today's episode, I share ways to stay sane amidst the chaos and uncertainty (that doesn't feel like it's going away anytime soon), and make an excited announcement about the future of the podcast.

Extraordinary to say the least!

Adair is an extraordinary blend of depth, wisdom and heart… plus levity, humor and joy. She created a space for me to feel seen and heard… to open up deeply and share my greatest contribution to her audience. We could have talked for days. A MUST LISTEN for your daily morning Light.

Perfect way to start my mornings!

I love listening to the Morning Light Show on my way to the gym. It gives me something positive and enlightened to think about during my workout (instead of how much I’m sweating!). These episodes are the perfect length-a little bite of sunshine each morning I listen.

Well Of Wisdom ✨

Adair has a way of presenting “real talk” with clarity! She has such a gift for encouraging self reflection in a simplistic and non-intimidating way.
It’s often the topics are dead on what I needed for the day/week.
If you’re looking for a light nudge to dive deeper into yourself and a bit of inspiration this is the podcast !!
