Friends, my dear cousin .nahmias has now been defending Israel’s right to exist for 100 days AND he is just $5K away from reaching his goal to raise ~$75k for ceramic plated protective vests for the unit of 80 reserves that he leads, who are bravely defending Israel in the north from Hezbollah.

Despite what you think you know about this conflict and what you are being told by MSM, there are incredible huge hearted Israelis who only desire peace but are fending for their lives right now, with rockets and anti-tank missiles being shot at them from all directions!

Please help protect these people - MY FAMILY. 🙏🏼🇮🇱💙

I didn’t expect that the first thing I would commit to in 2024 is Jewish studies - and specifically studying Torah. Weekly. If not daily. To some degree.

This is not the goal I would have thought would be the most important thing to me this year & yet here I am.

Who knew the strength of my Jewish roots would guide me back into the fertile soil of Torah.

I certainly didn’t.
But I am glad to return to what is so familiar, so resourcing and so inspiring - for me. 💙

Be open to YOUR unique journey.

Be open to remembering who YOU are.

That is where the magic really is - in remembering ourselves. ✨✨✨

And if you need help remembering who YOU are - hit me up. Shoot me a DM and just say hi! ☺️

This is what I do! This is my gift - Helping you remember who you are, so that you can LIVE with more ease, purpose and freedom. 🤍 Can’t wait to talk to you. Schedule a free 45-minute consultation call with the link in the comments. 🙂

Happy Sunday, my friends.

Welp that will make you cry… 😭😭😭

A dear long time client of mine just sent me this testimonial yesterday after signing up for another 6 months of work together.

I was floored.

I truly have the best clients ever and I’m so honored to have worked with many of them for years now! ❤️

What an absolute honor to be a witness, a mirror, a guide, a wayfinder, a lighthouse - a coach.

This work changes lives and that changes this world.

Are you ready to make a change?

The research shows that we are much more likely to be successful with some support & accountability.



Oh Hi there! 👋🏼👋🏼

I’d love to chat with you and hear about what’s going on in your life. And I have a 45-minute complimentary consultation call that you can schedule with the link in my bio. This is just a chance for us to get to know each other and for you to ask me any questions you want. I am here to make an impact - not a sale - so there will be NO pressure AT ALL. ☺️

A coaching relationship needs to feel right. For both parties. And I fully honor that I am not for everyone.

But what if I am for YOU? 😉

I hope you’ll find and out and schedule that call with me ASAP. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Rooting for you always,

Feeling sluggish after Thanksgiving?
After the time change?
After any day of the week being a parent/teacher/healthcare worker/caregiver?
HELL, after any day being a human being in 2020-2023?

I feel you.
Deeply.

This is precisely why I am now SO passionate about Energy Management, which I believe is one of hidden keys to preventing burnout and supporting a sustainable lifestyle of your choosing. Understanding the ways in which you personally feel energetically depleted and recharged is KEY to finding a sustainable rhythm in YOUR life.

As a seasoned Occupational Therapist, I truly understand the importance that CONTEXT plays in each person’s life. Meaning: the roles we each play, the various activities we engage in and the numerous metaphorical hats that we wear in our lives will greatly influence our energetic demands, resources & reserves.

If you are ready to THRIVE through the holidays (& beyond!) then come learn practical ways to conserve & BOOST your energy! 💥💥

💻 Masterclass is on Thursday Nov. 30th from 5-7pm via Zoom.

Investment is only $44!!! 🤩🤩🤩

I’d love to welcome you to this informative masterclass which includes a Q&A at the end - currently the most affordable way to pick my seasoned OT brain. 🧠🤓👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

We got this, y’all!🪫➡️🔋

Something you’d assume about me is that I am very extroverted since I am so active on social media; however, the truth about me is that as I am aging I am beginning to notice that I am perhaps more introverted than I previously thought. I draw a lot of energy in my life from time spent alone and I need a lot of recuperation time after going to events with lots of people or sensory input. Maybe I was never really extroverted, just good at masking, aka acting.

I now have a more accurate description of myself: an outgoing introvert. ☺️

Here are 4 things you can do to create more space for self-care in your life right now:

1️⃣ Schedule it. A walk. A hot bath. A call with your best friend across the country. For most of us, if it’s not intentionally scheduled, it won’t happen.

2️⃣ Ask for your partner/friend/parent to watch the kids so that you can take yourself on a solo date. Go peruse that local bookstore, savor a hot cup of coffee, go for a walk around the nearby lake. Or just find 2 trees, put your hammock up and crack open a new book.

3️⃣ Sit in your car for 5-20 minutes after you get home from work to claim this time for your own peace & quiet. This strategy is especially helpful for those of you with large and/or loud families. Getting in the shower for 15 minutes is also a great place to reduce sensory input and limit interruptions from other beings in your home.

4️⃣ Wake up 15-20 minutes earlier. Get out of your bed and take 15-20 minutes to savor a cup of Joe or hot tea, read a chapter of a book, or get down on the ground and stretch. There is time in the day for you to care for yourself - TAKE IT.

If these tips were helpful, tap that ♥️ and save it for later.

Do you need help with your self-care? Need support? A plan? Guidance & tips?

I got you!!! 🫶🏻

I have just 2️⃣ 1:1 coaching spots now open. Schedule a complimentary consultation call with the link in my bio.

I can’t wait to chat and help you crush your self-care game.

Because it matters.

And YOU matter! 💛

Your self-care coach/wizard,

Sondra

1. You simply can’t do it all. Learn how to cut the metaphorical fat from your life (i.e. drop the unnecessary baggage that is weighing you down).

2. Sustainability requires regular rest. You must prioritize rest if you want to sustain yourself. Energetic reserves will eventually run out. Taking breaks and prioritizing rest BEFORE we need it gives us the opportunity to regularly refuel and rejuvenate.

3. You can’t do it alone. Learn how to ask for & RECEIVE help & support. We, as humans, are wired for connection & community. So why keep fighting nature? Embrace your need for connection and enroll some support!

And GOOD NEWS for you…

I have two 1:1 coaching spots opening in October. Schedule a complimentary consultation call with the link in my bio. Experience being coached by me at no cost to you. What possibility awaits you when you enroll some support???

Before we moved to Colorado in August 2013, I operated primarily in one of 2 modes the majority of the time:
1.) people pleasing to the point of self abandonment
2.) what if, what if, what if to the point of completely missing the present moment

That is until I started working with coaches and learning about actual tools I could use to help me anchor into something more authentic - ME! 🥰👏🏼🫶🏻

Being introduced to core values work for the first time in 2014 with absolutely changed my life because it essentially gave me a roadmap for living! 🗺️

A way to filter all my decisions that helped me create a more aligned life.

A life that was my own. ♥️
A life that I WANTED to live! 😍
A life I was EXCITED to live! 🙌🏼

My core values became my GPS (Guiding Principles & Standards). 🧭📍

In a way, these tools gave me a playbook for my life. Because now when I lose my way or feel unsure of my next step, I return to core my values. I then compare what I value and what I’m currently DOING on an average day in my life.

This is how I see the discrepancies between where I AM and where I WANT to be. And ultimately this shows me where I need to channel more attention & energy in my life in order for it to feel more easeful, more authentic, more ME. 🫶🏻

We will be doing a deep dive into Core Values during Week 1 inside of The Cabin - my inaugural 8-week Virtual group coaching container to COME HOME TO YOURSELF. 🍁🍂

And 🆈🅾🆄 are invited!!! ☺️

I will give you the time, space & TOOLS to reconnect within. 🧠🫀🫶🏻

If you’ve never done this type of work before, or you’re curious about what else is on The Cabin itinerary, then please go 👆🏼 the 🔗 in the comments to learn more and reserve your space today. ♥️

🍁Limited spaces to ensure incredible & supportive experience for every single Cabin member.

🍂Spaces are filling up and we begin September 12th.

I can’t wait to welcome you inside of The Cabin community!! 🤗🧡

Meet you by the virtual fire 🔥,
Sondra

New on the Elevated Living Blog: 10 Lessons about being human from the Leadville 100

Training for a goal for 2 years and not reaching it is hugely disappointing. In case you missed it, my hubby DNF’d (Did Not Finish) again in the Leadville 100. Race day was incredibly hot and he ran out of liquid in his water vest halfway between aid stations in a very open field with direc

This is your reminder to commit to DAILY self-care & do things that actually make you FEEL G͟͟O͟͟O͟͟D͟͟ so that you don’t burn out and can show up in your life in a way that feels sustainable and enjoyable!

And if you need some help with this, I got you! 👇🏼

Inside of The Cabin, one of the things we will be diving into is self-care practices & rituals.

The Cabin is a transformational 8-week virtual group coaching container designed to be your sanctuary of self-discovery, self-awareness and genuine connection.

Other topics will explore include: core values, future visioning, prioritizing and aligning our actions to our values, self-compassion, stress & energy management, as well as cultivating a supportive and welcoming space for everyone in the Cabin community.

And with 3 different price points + 2 or 3 month payment plans, what are you waiting for?!?

Rooting for you!

One goal I’m working towards right now is building THE CABIN Community (my Inaugural Group coaching container) and the biggest thing I’m learning along the way is just how incredibly vulnerable it feels to put this creation of mine out into the world. 🫣

Will people understand what The Cabin is? 🤔

Will they want to come? 😬

What will people think about this offering? 💭

What if nobody signs up? 🙁➡️ Already NOT true, we have some incredible humans who have already claimed their virtual Cabin bunk space! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

But through facing this fear of truly putting myself out there & being seen, I am actually building the community that I and many of us are seeking.

🫶🏻

And I know there will be so much magic that happens inside The Cabin - exploration, discovery, clarity, community, & friendship.

The Cabin is enrolling right now. And I am so freakin’ stoked to welcome you! 😊Limited spaces available to ensure an incredible experience & supportive community for all Cabin members. 🍂🍁🧡

Magic awaits you in The Cabin…✨✨

Are you ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery that starts with the belief that you are already enough and that you do not need to change anything about yourself?

Do you desire to feel so deeply connected to yourself that making decisions on how & where to spend your time becomes nearly effortless?

Now imagine stepping into a cozy cabin nestled amidst the embrace of nature, where every nook is filled with comfort and every corner exudes warmth. Now, envision this haven as the backdrop for your personal journey of retreating from the hustle of everyday life, recalibrating your spirit, and reconnecting with the essence of who you truly are.

As we begin to close out Summer, the kiddos are all going back to school and the whisperings of Autumn are beginning to call us in (at least up here in the high country anyway), it feels imperative to begin to intentionally slow down and turn our attention inward.

Fall is a time of releasing, letting go, and only holding on to what is most important & absolutely necessary as we move into the stillness of Winter. This idea of slowing down, connecting within & with others, as well as getting clear and intentional on how we spend our precious time & energy forms the foundational pillars for the vision I had for The Cabin. Autumn naturally lends itself to this type of reflective work and I know so many of my friends, clients and even acquaintances have shared with me how much they are seeking community right now.

As am I myself.

And as they say…’If you build it, they will come.’

And so it is my deepest most sincere hope you that you will indeed come & get cozy & spend time in community with me this Fall in The Cabin. 🙏🏼

You are already enough.

All you need to do is show up for yourself.

Welcome to The Cabin. 🍂🍁

ALL of you is welcome here.

With warm & excitement,

Sondra

Nobody is coming to save you.

But YOU. 😳

Care for yourself accordingly.

Because your life depends on YOU to show up for it.

So be kind to yourself in the process. ☺️

Because this human experience is not for the faint of heart and one way we can make it a little easier is simply to be kind & supportive to ourselves.

(Which to be honest, feels really weird at first. Especially if this does not come naturally to you.)

Don’t know how?

Well you can now purchase “Self-Compassion for Well-Being” workshop recording + resources from Elevated Living! 🥰🤗

And I know that w̲̅e̲̅l̲̅l̲̅ b̲̅e̲̅i̲̅n̲̅g̲̅ starts with having self-compassion for simply being a human being. 🫶🏻

Inspired by a conversation with a dear friend earlier this week…

If you ever find yourself listing out reasons why you SHOULD like something or someone - then you probably don’t ACTUALLY like that thing or person.

Which is OKAY!

Just don’t lie to yourself because that causes incongruence, misalignment and in the end - this will not lead you to where you WANT to be.

Honesty with yourself is the foundation for building a life that is aligned with what is true & right for you.

Keeping’ it real,

Back in April, I was invited to guest speak at a local Chiropractor’s office about Non-Narcotic Pain Management.

One of the attendees was an older woman who shared that she experienced chronic pain due to neuropathy in her feet. After I finished my presentation, she commented that she has been going to a Pain Management Clinic in Denver for years now and that she has NEVER been taught ANY of the information that I taught her! 😳

Yes, you read that right.

A Pain Management Clinic is NOT educating people on the MindBody connection and empowering people to explore and implement non-narcotic pain management techniques. So what are pain management clinics doing then?

According to this woman, they give her scripts for pills and send her on her way. They adjust dosages and switch meds around as needed but she expressed that there has been ZERO education provided to her about other ways to help herself not only manage her pain better but actually change the way she experiences pain.

Y’all - solely dishing out pills is NOT healthcare. 👎🏼

Not how it SHOULD be, anyway.

And while I can’t change the system, I can do everything in my power to fill in the gaps and provide people with the missing education and information that they are not getting from their doctors.

This is precisely why I have decided to offer a Masterclass on Non-Narcotic Pain Management to the general public.

Our mind and our body are not separate entities and if people do not know and understand how they can use the power of their mind to help with reducing pain (& suffering) - they are truly missing out on the MOST important component of pain management.
