A good self-awareness practice teaches you a tremendous amount about yourself. Sadly, some people take the insights they gain through, yoga, meditation and contemplation and decide their past and their patterns equate to "character flaws" they can never escape.

If you have low-grade anxiety, you know it's not much fun. In my life, I have spent a lot of time thinking about the worst possible scenario and often thought it was a productive use of my time and energy.

If you have ever struggled wondering what to do with this pent up low grade anxiety, this might be the episode for you. I can't pretend it isn't personal, and I won't tell you I can wrap it up in a nice bow, but it will give you some new perspective that I hope supports you as you find your way forward.

Tell me what you do with your everyday anxiety in the comments below and please share this with anyone you think may benefit.

The idea of going on retreat is very intriguing. Imagine days or even weeks immersed in a practice like yoga or meditation, reconnecting with yourself while in the presence of other like minded people.

To many people this sounds like an incredible idea, but the truth is, all retreats are not created equal.

Ep 9: Alive With Purpose and Getting Motivated

In the last show I shared with you some of my productivity secrets, but would it surprise you to hear that I often don't feel like getting things done?

My goals and my purpose are important to me, but I don't always love all the little steps it takes to get there. 

And if you have big dreams I am sure that sometimes you too feel unmotivated to do the work it takes to realize your purpose.

However, over the years, I have learned to just expect that when my calendar notification goes off to tell me its time to get down to business, I probably won't feel like it.

So when I wake up feeling unmotivated, here is my personal routine to hit the reset button and get things done!

Life can be very overwhelming. There are so many things pulling at your attention that it can be a challenge to stay focused on what is important AND follow through on your cherished projects.

When people find out I am a writer, sometimes they will share that they have always wanted to write a book but can't find the time. I always respond with,

In part two of our conversation, Jeff Carreira shares his relationship to the state of fear and anxiety AND some very practical ways he uses those periods of time.

We also talk about how The Practice of No Problem can teach you to stay expansive in the face of the unknown and the positive effects this can have on your life.

Finally, we talk about some of the insights learned from having Jeff work with me during one of the most personally challenging experiences of my life. 

I was so inspired during this conversation and have since listened to it over and over again to tap into all of the wisdom that Jeff offers us. I hope this episode helps to spark your own passion for meditation.

You are in for a treat today. 

Let me introduce you to Jeff Carreira. Jeff is a spiritual teacher who has an incredible approach to life and the place of meditation within it.

Jeff has also personally been a huge supporter to me during some difficult moments in my life and helped me take something very scary and turn it into a new a beautiful possibility.

In this, part one of our talk, Jeff shares his insights on meditation and what he calls "The Practice of No Problem." Having followed his teaching for years I can say that this is one of the most powerful and accessible forms of meditation out there.

It is especially applicable for people like us who have very full lives and are trying to live in purposeful ways despite how "busy" we are.
