#86 Unless You're Saving a Life, Stop Killing Yourself

This week’s podcast teaches us that unless we save lives for a living, we don’t need to kill ourselves getting things done or proving our point to others. What would happen if we stopped killing ourselves and slowed down and enjoyed our life more? I challenge you to take out your mental mat and for the next nine minutes, listen, stretch your mind and learn how you can decide if your peace of mind is worth the stress and overwhelm you put on yourself.

#85 Your Life Story

In this week’s podcast we stretch our minds around the quote “Your Life is Your Story. Write Well. Edit Often”. What story do you tell yourself and others? Do you know you can change your story whenever you want to? You are the author of your story, you control the story you tell. Is there something in your past you’d like to forget—edit it out of your story. Learn how you can write your story to serve you better. You don’t have to keep telling yourself the same story over and over again. When we write well and edit often, we empower ourselves. Our stories become who we are. Listen for the next nine minutes and learn how to edit your story to benefit YOU!

#76 Healing Mental Wounds

We all have wounds that still need to heal. But did you know mental wounds are just like physical wounds in the sense that we have to stop touching them to let them heal? In this week’s episode our quote to ponder is “To Heal a Wound you have to Stop Touching It”. Wise words but hard to do sometimes. We know and can see the effects of touching a physical wound. We watch it become irritated and not heal quickly. Listen this week as we talk about how our mental wounds can be healed the same as our physical ones; if we stop touching them and we stretch our minds to figure out how we can do this.

#75 Silence versus Having the Last Word

Are you the type of person who likes to have the last word? Do you think if you don’t, you are letting the other person get away with something? In this week’s episode I encourage you to stretch your mind and think about whether you want to waste your energy on having the last word. I’ll help you understand that not having the last word may not be a weakness but rather it is a strength that we can use to our advantage.
