Is your child experiencing anxiety?

Has your child’s behavior taken a turn? Could it be anxiety? I KNOW, the word anxiety can mean a million things and it can be really confusing. But it’s important for parents to have an idea of where their kiddos are. Every child has their thing especially during different seasons of their life. It’s important...

Do it anyway.

No matter what you do, what you say, there will be judgment. Do it anyway.Say it anyway. If you talk about success too much, you’re cocky If you don’t, you’re stand-offish and unapproachable If you say no to “Can I pick your brain?” messages, you’re a jerk and have become “too good” If you share...

Take Your Power Back and Empower Your Family

There is a storm blowing out there … and it’s creeping into my practice. Which means it’s creeping into each of you too. I have a unique perspective here in that I see hundreds of people every week, and I place my hands on all of them. I literally feel that energy. It’s a crappy...

Trauma & the Brain, is this you?

Ok folks. We need to talk about trauma. Wait. I know what you’re thinking: “Not me! I haven’t had any trauma since I was a kid,” or “Nope. I’ve never been traumatized.” I’m sorry if I’m the first to tell you, but you have been. And while I’m glad that you don’t appear to be...

Comparison: living someone else’s story, values and priorities

COMPARISON: One of the biggest personal reasons for me to create The Aligned Life. As I move through my own journey of self-acceptance, I realize the huge struggle we are going through. My first major life stressor was moving when I was 13. Comparison became my long-term narcissistic boyfriend, the creep that I didn’t think...

The Dog’s Tail

The dog’s tail You can tell when a dog is uncomfortable by where its tail goes. Straight down. Between the legs. Submissive. The same happens when we’re uncomfortable. Our pelvis tucks under, our midback lumps forward and our eyes look down. DEFEAT. As soon as you believe it, you become it. Stand up. Lean in....

Be Your Own Friend

As Callyn and I are recording podcasts, the latest ones are about her injury + rehab. Instead of the story focusing on heartbreak and loss, it’s all about life and growth. She found herself as a person, not an athlete and a bunch of other labels or things she was good at. I see this...

Permission Rules

Permission = Rules by someone else Who do you ask permission from first – your best friend, spouse, kids, mom, dad, teacher, counselor, coach? Or you? I’ve lived many years making “kinda” decisions with the option to modify or change my opinion at any moment, depending on whose I liked more – mine, theirs or...

Does Passive = Going with the flow?

Being adaptable is not the same as sacrificing who you are for something or someone else. Going with the flow doesn’t mean someone grabbed your tongue or that you don’t have a voice or opinion. This may show up if you say yes to something that didn’t feel right and feel that pit in your...

Earn the Flat Road

These words make me so proud.   Earn ease after dis-ease. Earn the fruits after the labor. Earn the reward after the effort.   I’m on our bike at home and the 4 minutes hill climb sucks: Resistance 55-65, Cadence 70-80. I’m halfway there and know that in 10 seconds Jenn is going to instruct to turn...
