    39. Discover, Connect & Love: The Path to True Self-Care

    39. Discover, Connect & Love: The Path to True Self-Care

    Discover, Connect, & Love: The Path to True Self-Care. Listen In. I'm excited to welcome guest, Kerri Stenson to Your Aha! Life - The Podcast. Kerri and I met when we were going through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching certification program two years ago. Kerri is a registered social worker and a certified professional life coach, COR.E Wellbeing Specialist, and Energy Leadership Index Master Practitioner. In 2019, Kerri started Purposefully Balanced Coaching - a coaching practice dedicated to supporting other heart-centered helpers in making wellbeing a priority and overcoming the external and internal barriers that may be getting in the way. She speaks from the heart, sharing her own journey to greater self-care after experiencing burnout. 



    Kerri believes the path to true self-care begins with Discover, Connect, and Love. These three, along with intentionality, will help all of us who are on the journey toward caring for ourselves in a meaningful and sustainable way. In today's episode, Kerri and I talk about the myths and misconceptions related to self-care and how you can practice self-care in a way that fits you. Join Kerri each month when she hosts MasterClass sessions on important topics related to self-care. You can find the link to register by following her on IG @purposefully_balanced and FB: @purposefullybalanced.

    38. Don't Settle for a Half-Life: How to Live The Life You Deserve

    38. Don't Settle for a Half-Life: How to Live The Life You Deserve

    Don't Settle for a Half-Life: How to Live the Life You Deserve. If we're honest, all of us have settled in some area of our lives at some point in our lives. This episode is about that. If you find yourself settling for less than you deserve today or know that you have in the past, then you'll want to listen. In the episode, I share how settling shows up in our lives, the reasons people settle, and actions to take if you or someone you love is settling in life. Weeks ago the word, "settle" dropped in my spirit and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. Then, when I was writing this week's blog on The Art of Living a Simple and Balanced Life, I came across Kahlil Gibran's poem, Half-Life. It is beautiful and brilliant, and it set the table for what I wanted to talk about in this podcast. In his poem, he says, "Half a life is a life you didn't live...you are not half a being, You are a whole that exists to live a life not half a life." 

    I hope you enjoy this episode. More importantly, I want you to search your heart and ask yourself if you are settling in an area of your life. If you are, discover why and then apply some of the actions I give. When we live half-lives, when we settle, we are not living our best lives - certainly not our Aha! Lives. I want you to live Your Aha! Life and I want that for me as well. We deserve to live the lives we dream about. 

    I wish you more joy, more purpose, and more fulfillment. Please join me in continuing the conversation by going to my IG: tonya@yourahalife or join my private Facebook group, The Aha! Community. Whatever platform you listen to/view this podcast, please leave a comment, a review, thumbs up, or claps, and hit the subscribe button. I really appreciate your support. 

    xoxo,

    Maggie Dong is a Podcaster, Healer, Fitness and Life Coach, and Channeler. Her story: childhood abuse, immigration, losing her mother at 16, her dad's life sentence, depression and anxiety, eating disorders, dropping out of college, starting and growing her business...Maggie had every reason to give up on life. Instead, her experiences have made her stronger and wiser. I found Maggie to be incredibly peaceful, centered, and open to living in the flow of life.

    36. Empowered: Embracing Your Imperfections to Live a Richer, Fuller, More Empowered Life (with Chauncy Renay)

    36. Empowered: Embracing Your Imperfections to Live a Richer, Fuller, More Empowered Life (with Chauncy Renay)

    Listen in as I chat with Chauncy Renay of Living Louder Podcast about what it means to embrace your imperfections and live and richer, fuller, and more empowered life. Chauncy is an associate marriage and family therapist, speaker, and podcast host. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of California at Berkeley in Social/Cultural Anthropology and her master's degree from California State University at Los Angeles. Her podcast, Living Louder, is a weekly reminder that feeling fearful is never an excuse to give up. 

    In today's episode, Chauncy shares her own story about how she took high achievement to the brink in an effort to satisfy what she perceived to be societal expectations, an unhealthy definition of success, and self-doubt and fear. She was able to turn that around by discovering who she was at her core and make different choices to live according to her own definition of success. Chauncy leaves us with three "gems" to Live Louder - richer, fuller, and more empowered. 

    You can find Chauncy on Instagram at Living Louder Podcast (@livinglouderpodcast). I love Chauncy's podcast and I highly encourage you to check it out and start following her on IG. She posts a new podcast every Thursday. 

    On another note: I want to invite you to join my first-ever Your Aha! Life Global Community MeetUp on March 23rd at 7 PM EDT. We will get to know one another better, connect, learn together and have fun. You will be able to Ask Me Anything!!

    Today's Podcast: How to Love Yourself Using the Maxx METHOD with Christy Maxey

    After 20 years as a therapist in private practice, Christy Maxey noticed a pattern: We don't know how to love ourselves or manage our emotions - with mindfulness, acceptance, and kindness. Wanting to reach a larger audience, Christy decided to become a personal development coach to help more people learn how to love themselves, transform negative behavior patterns, past trauma, negative core beliefs, and relationship problems into real confidence, self-worth, and relationships and careers that thrive. Today, Christy is also a speaker and creator of the Maxx METHOD, a framework for personal development and self-mastery. She is the author of The Maxx Method: How to Love Yourself and Become Who You Are Meant to Be. Listen in as Christy shares the Maxx METHOD and gives insight on how you can uncover and love your authentic self, develop emotional intelligence and self-mastery in managing your emotions. 

    You can find more information about Christy at www.maxxmethod.com or on social media at https://facebook.com/maxxmethod, or on Instagram at https://instagram.com/christymaxey_coach. You can also email her at christy@christymaxey.com.

Let Your Guests Speak

I like this podcast & the guests you have on here. However, I feel you interrupt the guests too much & share too much of your perspective & it’s aggravating. It even sounds like it aggravates your guests. It’s great to pose questions, but please quit interjecting with your opinion, so extensively, at the expense of your guest sharing fully. Maybe you can have the occasional episode of sharing your own viewpoint. Possibly without a guest. But it’s frustrating, as it feels you too often monopolize the conversation to talk about yourself. Thanks.
