EPISode #1: How To Flourish
I'm going to show you how to create a very specific checklist that will keep you on-target to reach happiness and fulfillment so you don't end up running headlong to somewhere that will cause stress and disappointment.
EPISODE #2: No Whining? Dang.
I spent the last 2 weeks trying to go cold-turkey on complaining... it wasn't pretty. But affirmations and gratitude lists don’t always work, do they? So, when we need something more, what does work?
Episode #3: Jesus came to me in an overachiever dream.
I dreamed I was at a cocktail party filled with over-achievers...And Jesus showed up to tell me to lower the bar.
Episode #4: i brushed my teeth with the tap water in mexico again.
Habits are going to screw you or save you. We were in Mexico and my husband Soren was standing at the sink, and he KNOWS you don’t use tap water in Mexico to brush your teeth. But the habitual brain was TOTALLY in charge. How to use that to your advantage without getting Montezuma's Revenge.
episode #5:Affirmations can kiss my a--
People say, “If you REALLY believe in yourself, this will work!” That’s bull-oney… So what does work??
episode #6: Get lost!
So, what if you want to find the real you, but don’t know how…Who have I become? What do I want to do with my life? What if I give it all up and become someone else? And who the hell would that be??
Episode #9: How To Plan To Be Spontaneous
What happens when you get in the habit of following a strict schedule, and suddenly you have a great idea, but it's not the time that you have scheduled for creative ideas? Can you let yourself to stop and follow that idea? Learn how to intentionally add spontaneity to your life!
Episode #7:Constraint breeds creativity
In improv, we have rules and gimmicks to our games. This is great news because trying to do a scene with no rules, no starting suggestion from the audience and no nuthin’ is really difficult. So here’s the deal. Being constrained actually makes you create better stuff!
Episode #10: How To never feel bad about criticism again
People ask me all the time how I can stand the hater comments on my YouTube comedy videos and other social media. They look at me like I've got a heart of steel, but that isn't the case. If a friend or peer who I respect critiques me, I take it to heart and listen and think about it. But the haters? I couldn't care less.
episode #8: conditioning
When we are stripped down to our most primitive level, you’d think we’d become wonderfully clear, instinctive, a perfectly functioning animal... Nope! Don't be ruled by your conditioning!
episode #11: coming soon!
