Let's talk about perfectionism ✨

Hi, Reader! I'm coming to you today with a new newsletter. Would you look at that? It’s been a while since I showed up in your inbox, and I’m sorry about that. Do you want to know why that is? It's not because I've been too busy. No, it's because I've been letting perfectionism hold me back. I...

Why it's so hard to live in the moment

Hi, Reader! Lately I've been thinking about how difficult it can be to truly live in the present moment.

How to ease into 2023 ✨

Happy Wednesday, Reader, This time of year is riddled with other people sharing their tips to help you ‘get ahead of 99% of other people’ in the new year. But what if you don’t want to get ahead of anyone else? That’s not personally how I measure success. I just want to get ahead of the things...

Rebuilding a mindful morning routine ✨

Hi Reader, I’ve been in the process of rebuilding my morning routine. For too long, I’ve been waking up with an immediate sense of overwhelm. I’d automatically think about what I needed to do that day and whether anyone was waiting on a response from me. I found myself in the habit of jumping...

3 tips for a better wind-down routine ✨

Hi Reader, What does your wind-down routine look like? By that, I mean how do you spend the time before you go to bed? Do you give yourself time to decompress from the day? And is that time spent in a way that actually feels relaxing? I don’t ask to make you guilt-trip yourself, but only as a...

Self-care ideas for September ✨

Happy Wednesday, Reader, Last month, I shared that one of my goals was to figure out how to stop snoozing my alarm. As a chronic snoozer and non-morning person, I was at the point where I was tired of making excuses about it. Sometimes you have to accept your behavior, but this was one of those...
