163. Do It Shitty And Find Your Own Voice

This short & sweet episode is an about overcoming perfectionism. I talk about where that critical inner voice that tells you "you're not worthy" or "enough" comes from and a little mindset hack you can use to stop feeling so ashamed about the intrusive thoughts that keep you from achieving the goals that YOU actually want to achieve — not the goals you think you should achieve to please others.

158. Living with PMDD: My Personal Journey and Discovery

158. Living with PMDD: My Personal Journey and Discovery

Trust me, this is not your average "craving chocolate and crying during The Notebook" situation!

In this episode packed with insights and emotional depth, I'm delving into the realm of PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder), explaining what PMDD is, how it differs from PMS, some interesting facts about PMDD, why it takes so long to get a proper diagnosis, and my personal period journey of dealing with dismissive doctors, raised eyebrows, and why it takes so long to get a proper diagnosis.

From my emotional rollercoasters to moments of personal victory, I'm peeling back the layers – the good, the bad, and, oh yes, even the breast tenderness.

153. The Power of Routine: How I Overcame Old Habits and Changed My Schedule

153. The Power of Routine: How I Overcame Old Habits and Changed My Schedule

In this episode, I'm getting personal and sharing my experience with breaking a bad habit that had me stuck in a less-than-ideal routine for years.

I had to face the hard truth that I was unhappy with the way I was living my life and needed to make a change. With some self-reflection and determination, I was able to identify what was holding me back and was able to create a new, more fulfilling schedule - for everyone involved!

Join me as I share this one small thing that changed my paradigm! Hopefully this inspire anyone looking to break free from their own monotony and take control of their lives.

*Heads Up*: I recorded this episode while on a walk in my neighborhood and the audio starts out a little broken-up but it does get clearer about 2 minutes in!
