Many of us have jumped right back into our complex, busy lives and are feeling the strain. For all it’s challenges, the pandemic gave us a break from some of the chaos of our over-scheduled lives. I have heard from many of you that you liked having more space in your calendar and fewer commitments.
But now what?
As we transition into new modes of working, socializing and BEing with others, many of us are feeling the impact and are asking ourselves: what habits do I want to keep? And how can I use this as a reset for something new?
That feeling prompted a fantastic conversation with the creators of the “Mom & …” podcast about how we can lean into our values and habits to navigate transitions in a more meaningful and authentic way.
The podcast was created by Susanne Kerns and Missy Stevens and is aimed at guiding Moms through everything that happens in the ellipses (the … of our lives), from career decisions to emotional health. I appreciate that they aim to guide women through the challenges that ALL mothers face — both personally and professionally — with wisdom and humor. I’ve gotten new ideas out of every episode!
Earlier this year I was a guest on the “Mom &… Podcast” to talk about how knowing our Strengths can make a big impact in our lives (Feb 25 episode) and the foundation of creating (or breaking) habits (March 4 episode).
So naturally, I was super excited when they invited me back to talk about habits again, and specifically “Developing Value-Based Habits During Transitional Periods.”
In this episode we explore:
- Complexity in our schedules is BACK! So how do we stay on track with some of the good habits we created during COVID times?
- How a positive mindset can create more powerful motivation for the habits we want to create
- What boundaries look like when we are creating habits.
- How to navigate transitions and use the information our bodies are giving us.
What I really love most about this particular podcast episode is that you’ll get a feel for my coaching style: deep listening, perspective born from curiosity and rooted in love. I’d love for you to check it out and let me know what you think!
