    About Rachael O'Meara
    Rachael is an Executive Leadership Coach and author who helps her fellow humans at every level of leadership to amplify their impact, plan for success and press pause if burnout or overwhelm are looming. I wrote the book Pause and shared it and my own experience of burnout on the TEDx stage - to help other high-achieving and dedicated individuals learn the tools and strategies that have helped me step off the hamster wheel - for good. 

    My goal is always to help my clients feel more empowered, calm, and confident so they can reclaim their lives, have more fun, and do what they came here to do. If your life is already high velocity, you can still find the tools to sustain that pace and soar even higher; but do so with focus and a firm grasp on your wellbeing. As a five time rowing National Champion who has lived in every time zone and pushed herself to the limit, I know what it feels like to have your eyes on the prize and to give every shred of your energy to your dreams. 

    I also know and live by the idea that you create the space that serves you and in which your truth comes alive. 

    What space, truth and reality do you want to create together?

    ABOUT PAUSE THE JOURNAL
    Looking for a way to be more intentional, create your dreams, and have even more impact? Pause: The Journal can help!

    Rachael provides 90 days for journaling, plus a walk-through of how to get the most out of this journal. Pause: The Journal is the perfect compliment to her book Pause: Harnessing the Life-Changing Power of Giving Yourself a Break.

    According to Rachael, a pause is defined as an intentional shift in behavior. Journaling in itself is a pause. A pause is about taking a time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in service to creating your dreams and more of what you want in life. That’s what Pause: The Journal is all about: taking a time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in order to create your dreams.

    Rachael O’Meara’s will guide you on your own pause journey to:
    - Pause in daily reflection to process and visualize so you can be more focused, clear, and empowered
    - Retrain your brain to orient towards the positive through celebrating, gratitude, and acknowledgement prompts
    - Take incremental, inspired action to move towards your vision, desired outcome, or dream.

    Pause: The Journal is the gateway to help you capture, process, and move toward your dreams using a consistent practice of intentional writing.

Pause to learn more about emotional intelligence and leadership

The Pausecast is great! Rachael calls a pause and intentional shift in behavior and that’s exactly what this show is - an opportunity to pause and learn from Rachael and her guests on what I can do differently to create the shifts in life that I want to create.

the dysons ,

Erric Solomon episode

I just listed to episode 29. This was my first time listening to The Pausecast. Rachael’s guest Erric Solomon had profound but also practical suggestions for feeling less anxious and finding meaning in our always-on world.
