I love my two daughters AND I am sooooo glad they're going back to school tomorrow.

Looking forward to consistent routines and some uninterrupted time to work (or read, nap, or watch Netflix).

Do you ever have those days where good intentions and the best laid plans fall to the wayside?

Day 2 in the books!



08/01/2022

We have begun! Day 1 of our 7 day challenge to for 10 minutes/day.

Note: there is no right way to do this! And it's not always easy! I tend to feel "itchy," metaphorically speaking, when I get started, and it can feel so hard for me to settle into the moment. I sometimes spend the first 8 minutes (or perhaps all 10 minutes!) with a chatty, revved up mind. Rest can be hard!

And sometimes, it's blissfully easy, and we know we're exactly where we need to be. Perhaps we even conk out before the first minute has passed.

It all belongs.


The Challenge begins today!!!!! Can't wait for my afternoon rest!

Ahhhhh, JOY! We psychologists learn almost nothing about this in our professional training, so I had to do some research and surveying to prepare for this podcast episode. Personally, I am learning that being mindful of joy tends to improve my mood and spirits, and I am learning that I am often in too much of a hurry to notice the joy that is already present in my life. Another reminder to slow down and be still (the universe sends me this message often!).

Join us this Thursday on the Inspiration from the Couch podcast as we explore joy. In the meantime, grab your journal and reflect on the 5 questions pictured here.

What’s so bad about the truth?

Simple question, but man, it can be hard to speak the truth at times.

Join us for Episode 16 of Inspiration from the Couch, as we dive into all things related to Speaking Truth. (Find us wherever you listen to podcasts or on our website at https://inspirationfromthecouch.com/ep-16%3A-speaking-truth)

Last week we launched this episode on The F*ck It Diet by Caroline Dooner. What a great read! I believe this book should be mandatory for all humans, especially women!

Our third book club episode is on The F*ck It Diet by Caroline Dooner. In this episode we provide an overview of the book and discuss key takeaways that resonated most with each of us (e.g., trust your body, the crisis/famine state we put our bodi...

In moments of distress, we often default to two places: 1) back to the past, with self-judgment, regret, guilt, and shame, or 2) to the future, with anxiety, planning, fixing, and figuring out. Both are exhausting. And both are ineffective.

Compassion allows us to access a way OUT of this suffering. And it gives us this way out by providing a way IN. Compassion is showing up for ourselves with kindness and warmth. It is allowing it all to belong, and intentionally softening around whatever may be showing up.

The practice of compassion is powerful. I have found it to be the most incredible secret sauce I have yet to encounter. If I could teach my clients and children only one thing, compassion would be the clear winner.
