Progression = Slowing Down

Progression = Slowing Down I know it sounds counter-intuitive. It's 100% true. How do I know? Well, there's always a story. Busy, a word I do not use but will allow for this weekly blog. When executives communicate to me on how busy they have been all day, my first question is usually, "what have [...]

Are you BEing mindful?

Are You BEing Mindful? This week gave me a massive shift in perspective in many areas. I found myself returning to "BE" mode a lot. Have you considered stopping, pausing, reflecting, seeking silence, and solace to gain clarity? Stillness is genuinely the key to success. When we leave space to change our behaviour patterns, it opens up limitless possibilities. [...]

Self-Care Leadership

Self-Care Leadership When we decide to practice a task, it becomes a habit. When we maintain the habit pattern, it becomes a routine. Why do we struggle with starting, maintaining, and implementing? Enter self-care leadership. Self-Care leadership is the ability to prioritize your time and attention. It’s both the art and skill of prioritizing the need for who and [...]

Inner Capital Balance

Inner Capital Balance This week, I allowed myself to literally 'feel all the feels.' Call it a self-audit of my inner capital. I must confess my balance wasn't zero; it became officially overdrawn. Have you ever had so many things in your mind that your brain feels like a computer with way too many windows [...]

There’s Nothing Like a Good Reset

There's Nothing Like a Good Reset I woke up yesterday—Sunday morning. Usually, I think, write, edit, and then type my Hope Weekly article for Linked In. Yesterday as I was sipping my delicious coffee, I thought to myself, I don't feel like writing today. I was 100% ok with the thought, emotion and decision to [...]

Digital Obesity

Digital Obesity This week has continued to be a whirlwind of news, emotions, setbacks, and acceptance for many people. It's also the opportunity for our digital behavior to become obsessive, hence the title for this weeks' HOPE Weekly. Do you journal? You do not need to have a fancy, a beautifully bound book to do [...]

Happy Easter & Passover

Happy Easter & Passover Easter and Passover are different for all of us this year. If you could change this in a nanosecond and have all your extended family at your dinner table this evening, it would be happening. We are not with our loved ones. I choose not to review what is happening in [...]

Progressively Moving Forward

Progressively Moving Forward This week I have listened, observed and continued to learn. I've allowed myself a bit of time in the morning and again at the end of the day to keep myself updated with the current COVID-19 pandemic happening in our world. I've realized that most people are finally getting 'self care'. They [...]

I’m Choosing to Look Up

I'm Choosing to Look Up This week while meditating, the word hope continually came into my thoughts. It left me with a feeling of peace that I have not experienced in many years. Now that we are all in the 'stay at home' mode, I must say that I have been enjoying this beautiful gift [...]

Increase Your Inner Capital

As a yoga teacher, I am continually amazed at the questions and overall response during a meditation at the end of my yoga classes. Here is a list of the top 5 reasons I hear from individuals have difficulty meditating: I can’t turn my brain off I’m trying to do it; I just can’t I […]

Self-Care Language for Living

A week ago, I hosted the 2nd Annual Women’s Self-Care Conference in my home city of London, Ontario, Canada. This day had been a dream for me to host this conference in my city. I started in 2018 with the 1st Annual in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and then decided to take it across Canada in […]
