Pandemic Stress Is REAL!

Stress is at an all-time high. Living, caring for family and friends, and working in a global pandemic for two and a half years has turned up the volume on stress and given birth to new stressors that makes us all vulnerable.

Did you know that anyone who is exposed to chronically stressful conditions can experience burnout and more?

When’s the last time you checked in with yourself to see what you are stressed by and the impact of the stress on your life, relationships, and career?

If you haven’t checked in with yourself about your stress, I invite you to do it during Stress Awareness Month in April.

I am hosting a Spring Reset Webinar to help you check-in on your stress and learn how to use 5 Self-Love Languages to manage your stress on April 3rd at 2-3 PM ET, April 13th at 7:30-8:30 PM ET, and April 20th at 7:30-8:30 PM ET.

Vulnerability and Self-Love: Lean Into Them By Signing Up for Self-Love Challenge on March 21-25!

Hey there!

I used to hate asking for and receiving help because it made me VULNERABLE. I thought being VULNERABLE was scary because it made me weak. I wanted to protect myself so I kept trying to handle everything on my own. Eventually, I burned out and needed help, but resisted receiving it. I even fought it at times. Once I got back on my feet, I returned to acting the same way until I burned out again. I repeated this cycle several times because I was too proud to ask for and receive help.

Choosing to not ask for and receive help kept me stuck and on a continuous rollercoaster ride of burnout. My choice and pride caused me to miss out on many opportunities and experiences.

It took me a long time to realize that asking for and receiving help was one of the best self-love action steps I could take to be present, well, and the REAL ME. 

Watch the video below and find out what I had to say about the connection between being VULNERABLE and Self-Love.

As your Thriving Mindfully Coach, I am here to make sure you get the help you need to love and care for yourself. I am here to hold space in a safe community so you can feel comfortable being vulnerable. I am here to help you be present, well, and the REAL YOU. Why? Because you deserve it all and more!

Need a lifeline of coaching support? Sign up for Self-Love Challenge: 5 Ways to Thrive in Springtime on March 21-25

It’s March Madness in the basketball world. A different kind of March Madness is happening all over the world. People are losing their lives, loved ones, freedoms, homes, jobs, countries, and so much more. Oppression, violence, and inflation continue to rise and impact us all.

How are you coping with it all?

Do you need a self-love lifeline of inspiration and support?

As you head into the year 3 of the global pandemic, you may be wondering (like me) how you’re going to navigate what’s next in your life, relationships, and career. You may be dealing with stress, anxiety, depression, mind drama, grief, loss, and more.
