5-Bullet Aloha Friday

Happy Aloha Friday! And Happy November! Anyone feeling “busy”? After all, ’tis the season..of busyness. When I work with clients who are feeling “crazy busy” this time of year, one of the first things we look at is whether this is Chronic Busyness or Seasonal Busyness. I wrote a Best Life Ever blog post awhile back about understanding the difference between these two types of busyness because it’s such an important distinction to make. If you’re experiencing a little seasonal busyness as you gear up for the holidays, be easy on yourself and read up on a few strategies that you can use to lighten your load over the next few months 😉

And now for 5 things I’ve been enjoying and pondering:

  • What I’m buzzzzzzing about – BLE Buzz enrollment is open right now through 11/15/17! Life is too damn short to suffer through the week feeling overwhelmed, tired, and unproductive.

  • What else I’m excited about – Our Shift to Rise retreat is really coming to life. Check out this FREE training, “How to Get Unstuck”, from our Shift Team! We have another Shift webinar coming up next Thursday on “How to do a life inventory” and we’re announcing $4444 worth of bonuses for this retreat including a special dinner with us Shift leaders and an extra night of stay!

  • App I’m loving   Yummly. This app is the best thing ever for meal prep and grocery shopping! Search and save your favorite recipes from the interwebs, search based on ingredients on-hand and dietary preferences, make shopping lists, and even schedule when you want to prepare things!
  • What I’ve been drinking lately – Dirty Chais from Brue Bar. Chai + espresso tastes like gingerbread and feels like productivity!
  • My new favorite nighttime ritual –  Wonderfluff from Acure. I’m obsessed with this affordable, organic, overnight hydrating face mask/cream. Plus I love the quirky language on the tube: “You want some serious winkle fighting, you got it! Yes, we said ‘winkle fighting’. Winkle’s are the magical elves who sneak in at night and try to steal your pretty.”

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!!!!!!!

P.S. Are you ready to really begin transforming your life? Let’s talk


I Wanna Be Like Bradley Cooper

Do you ever feel like there is just not enough time to do everything that you want to and “have to”? Does your life feel like never-ending blur of to-do lists, emails, events, commitments, and obligations? Do you ever worry that time is racing by so quickly that you are missing out on quality time with your friends, family, and yourself?

If so, you’re certainly not alone. In this day and age, most of us are familiar with that frazzled feeling of being overworked and overwhelmed. We are busier than ever and yet we find ourselves struggling to find the time to do the things that will help move us to our bigger goals, dreams, and life vision. We think time is the enemy holding us back from reaching our goals and enjoying the quality of life we desire. We tell ourselves that we will start pursuing our dreams “when life settles down”, but that day never seems to come. 

I have always wrestled with time and consider myself to be a recovering busy-ness addict and time-abuser. I have always blamed “lack of time” for my lack of productivity and lack of peace. Even today, the words, “I don’t have enough time” always sit on the tip of my tongue and it has taken me years to break the habit of giving the knee-jerk response of “busy” when asked how I’m doing. But this unhealthy relationship with time has led me to discover a new passion and obsession – life, time, and productivity hacking! 

There is so much to learn about the way our brains and bodies can best utilize the 24 hours we are all given each day. I find the concept of brain and body optimization to be absolutely thrilling. I mean, don’t we all want to feel like Bradley Cooper in Limitless? But until they create a nootropic like NZT that won’t cause time blackouts, limping, or death (if you haven’t seen Limitless, add to it your “movies to watch” list right now), we must be heal our relationship with time so that we may optimize our lives and start living our dreams. 

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach my first “Optimize Your Life” class this coming Saturday, September 13th at 4:30pm at Happiness U. I am so excited about this subject and I have designed this class to help you shift from “overwhelmed and busy” to “efficient, productive, and inspired” so that you no longer have to feel like time is the enemy. 

In this 90-minute workshop, I will share tips, tools, strategies, and resources to optimize your life and maximize your time. You’ll learn how to manage the technology in your life (instead of having it manage you) and discover how fun and easy it can be to outsource and automate lower-level tasks and stuff you just don’t want to do. I will share my favorite, easy-to-implement physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual hacks that can help you be more efficient so that you do more of what you and create more time for work, play, travel, fun, or all of the above!

Remember, it’s not about having time, it’s about CREATING time! When I feel those old patterns of “time blaming” and “time frustration” popping up, I take a deep breath and remind myself that I have all the time in the world to do everything I want to and more, because I CREATE TIME. Today, as you go about your day, evaluate your relationship is with time and take a simple inventory of how you are spending each moment of your 24 hours. Remember, with or without NZT, you are LIMITLESS!

Hope you can create time to join me this Saturday! Register here:
