5 Ways to Settle Your Soul

I’m writing this from the treadmill, peeps. I don’t love the treadmill- but it felt right today so here I am! I’m also feeding my brain with an Ed Mylette podcast because even though I love to just blast some music at the gym, my brain needed some FOOD. And yes, I’m writing. Because, A.D.D. If all this multi-tasking gives you anxiety…. listen up!

I actually want to talk to you today about anxiety again. The post that has resonated with y’all the most so far was basically my manifesto on what anxiety feels like to me. So, were not doing that again today but we’re going to talk instead about how I’ve learned to cope.

Let’s call this 5 Ways to Settle Your Soul. Anxiety Busters, coming right up!

Swallowing Frogs- The To-Do List and How to Tackle It

Mark Twain once said, “If you swallow a giant frog, first thing in the morning, the day gets easier from there.”
OK, that’s not the exact quote but you get the idea. Basically, Twain was saying to do one really big, awful thing first thing in the morning and then everything else will seem easy peasy. I can get behind that — but what if you have a bunch of things to do, or a bunch of “frogs to swallow?” I say, eat the biggest one first.

To-Don’t

A Sunday evening quickie.

This week in the She, Confident Community on Facebook we talked a lot about jotting down a ‘to-do’ list each night right before bed in order to be able to really tackle and accomplish the heck out of the next day. I hope that those of you in the SCC had to drop your pen to open this notification!

Even if you’re not settling in right now to make a list of to-do’s or perhaps you’re reading this on some random Tuesday in the future- I want to challenge you to come up with a To-Don’t list for the week as well. I think you’ll get the hang of it when you glimpse mine:

Fitness Center Fear

Last year in January I joined the gym. For the first time in my life I decided to really get serious about living my best life as far as my health is concerned. While I had spent a few years prior learning about nutrition and hormones and all those other ‘best health of my life’ things (that I will definitely explore later on in this blogging adventure,) regular exercise was the missing piece. If you see me running, you better run too because something is chasing me. I’m sure you’ve heard that joke before. That was one of my favorites. If you saw me exerting energy that would elevate my heart rate in public something was going down.

Welcome to my blog!

I’m a constant work in progress, but I’m making progress. Through lots of trial and error, heartaches and overcoming, trying and failing and trying again- I’m becoming more and more confident in who I am and why I’m here.

I’m starting this blog as a place to share the things I’ve learned in my quest for health, wealth, and happiness.

Here’s a random list of things you’ll probably find here on She, Confident-

  • Recipes and meal ideas for keeping it clean and healthy on a busy schedule
  • Book reviews and recommendations
  • Family life
  • Real life stories about health issues many women face but few attempt to conquer
  • Things I’ve learned running a successful sales business for the last 15 years
  • Seriously I really don’t know- if you know me at all you know there’s really no telling what I’ll end up saying….

I believe a lot of dreams die when we choke on our own voices. I want to take the words from my heart and get them out into the world, and this seems like a good place to get started.
