life lessons from Grandma susie


There’s probably no better way to learn valuable life lessons than looking to our elders. As a follow-up to our previous episode entitled Second Chances at Life and Love , we had a chance to reflect on what we learned, actions we’re taking and ideas for you. Lanee thought back to her Grandma Susie who held the key to some major inspiration! Interestingly, it wasn’t just about what she did in her youth, but what she did in her later years that gave us some potentially life-changing lessons. Click play for some timeless “Grandma Susie motivation” and many other marvelous takeaways from our previous guest, author Jeanne Hussin.

Tips to help you fall asleep


Trouble falling asleep or getting back to sleep after waking in the middle of the night is something most  people deal with at some point in their lives. Whether it’s a minor annoyance or an every-night issue for you, we think you’ll find this short episode helpful. It was inspired by our guest, sleep expert and therapist Katelyn Anderson on the podcast How to Finally Get a Good Night’s Sleep. In it, she talked about the intersection between mental health and sleep and dished out a ton of helpful advice. An important caveat that many of us miss with sleeping tips (like anything else) is that if it’s difficult to fit into our lifestyle, the chance of success decreases. In this mini-episode, we tell you what happened when we tried out some of the tactics she gave us and added some of our own. We hope that you get some ideas and inspiration that you can customize for yourself.  Take a few minutes to listen now, and it just may help to you to sleep better tonight!

What Do You Want to Be Known For?


What do you want to be known for? It’s an interesting and profound question to ask yourself. In this mini-episode, a follow-up to our episode with Coach and Consultant Heather Wolfson,  Opening the Door to What's Next in Your Life, we did just that. Many of us are investigating or full-out heading into new opportunities right now; but are we asking ourselves the right questions and making the right preparations before we jump in? Is it going to serve our values and enhance what we want to be known for? In this episode, we used what we learned from Heather and took an honest look at this for ourselves. Our goal is to help you learn to do the same. Plus, we have a few tips to help you zoom in on the next right step in your journey. 

Learning When to Say No to Yourself


Part of setting healthy boundaries involves those you set with yourself. When we interviewed coach Leslie Hoerner in our last podcast titled Finding Balance Through Boundaries, one of the topics that came up was saying no to ourselves. It had a big personal impact on us both because we had typically thought setting boundaries was all about pointing outward. While setting boundaries definitely includes (and maybe even emphasizes) our relationships and how may need to set limits with others, it’s also about those “no’s” we have to say to ourselves. Of  course doing that is not usually easy; but Leslie gave us some sound strategies to help. This episode is what happened when we followed Leslie’s tips. Hopefully, it helps you too!  

Quick Home Hacks


Here’s what happened when we decided to try some of the tips our last guest gave us for home décor and organization.  We hope these little hacks/ideas will inspire you! Thanks to our guest,  Meah Pace (5 Easy Ways to Turn Your House Into a Home Sweet Home)  and our guest from last season’s Organization 101, Nadia Audette. We were able to incorporate ideas from both. Enjoying your home is such a boost for your state of mind!  Check out the full episodes for more details.
