Personal

It’s about you and your life

Joyful

Misery and wellbeing are
mutually exclusive

Generous

Our ability to thrive creates opportunity for others to do the same

WE EMPOWER PEOPLE to realize wellbeing
in the life THEY are living right now

Operating in the foundational truth that wellbeing is an amplification of your joy, connection, and self care. We reject the myth that wellbeing is a destination only achieved when one becomes good enough, disciplined enough, or any other better version of oneself.

Your wellbeing is like a light that you carry in your soul. If can be amplified or diminished. It is fluid. It is here and now. It is with you.  To realize wellbeing, you begin to respond to and nourish that light on a daily basis. 

Meeting each month has helped me better understand my tendencies and how to work with them (as opposed to against them) while still achieving improvement. I leave each session with a bit of a different perspective on the topic at hand, but specific enough to result in noticeable changes in my habits.

Working with Realize Wellbeing, I never feel judged- you meet me where I am and help me get to where I want to be. Every time we meet, I walk away with an “aha!” moment that I can then apply to my life. If it were stressful, time-consuming or not helpful, I wouldn’t be using your advice. It’s so personalized to me, that it is easy to incorporate into my life. And it works! It’s fun and stress free–which ensures I will use the tools you give me.

That's it. That's all there is. ⁠⁠

To realize wellbeing on a daily basis you must remember it is an iterative process. You try and learn. You fail. You pivot. You move inward, deeper with yourself. Then you keep doing that every day for the rest of your life.

It’s a myth that there is a secret solution to ultimate happiness, health, and wellbeing. Find teachers and professionals who trust in your resilience, who honor that you know best about your needs, who help you develop your self trust. They will walk with you all the way home.

Put your feet on the ground today. Try again.

PS: we provide coaching that allows you to design the life of your dreams. 70% of the people we work with report an increase in their overall wellbeing. If you’ve been considering support, we’d love to walk with you. DM me.

Happy Valentine’s Day loves. Thank you for following me here. Thank you for creating a community where we can all bring our whole, messy, broken selves and remember that we all deserve wellbeing. ...

From a small corner in my house I have delivered over 100 presentations on the topic of Restorative Wellbeing. Human Resource managers need a new way to support their employees’ wellbeing.

Organizations that care deeply for their employees want to give them the tools for restoration and resilience.

For the past five years I have studied the damaging ways we unintentionally harm people by sending them chasing for their health and well-being.

It’s time we lead in a new way to support a better society. DM me if you have a group you’d like to receive this life giving training.

Just a few small things to nourish yourself can make all the difference. You don't need a major plan. You just need to honor your whole self. ⁠⁠

Some days... yesterday I provided my Restorative Wellbeing presentation and received such incredible feedback that it fed my soul. Then I took seven neighborhood kids on a two mile hike in the woods. We had the most epic fun.

Today my cat ate a kid toy and we had to take her to the vet, I got some crummy feedback from a colleague, and my kids had a meltdown.

I have routinely failed at wellness programs that require rigid routines. My soul needs me to nourish it, not control it.

Today I went on a hike to center in my perseverance. Day by day: that’s how we do wellbeing.

This is my Great Great Grandmother Helena Magdalena. Until a few weeks ago my family didn’t have a photo of her.

In 1869 at the age of 3 she came here from Germany. Shortly after they arrived her mother died in childbirth and she was placed in an orphanage.

I don’t know much about her, but I can imagine the hardships she must have faced. She lived through two world wars and a Great Depression.

What I know about her daughter and grand-daughter and great grand son (my dad), I know that she must have found a way to prioritize love.

She was a midwife for her community, and master gardener who used her talents to feed as many people as possible in the Great Depression.

Her well-being was about survival and community. There were no diets or fitness plans. There were no skin care products or concerns of aging.
There were no child enrichment programs. There was none of that. And yet, she lived to be 88.

This is the kind of health I want. I live with immense safety and privilege. I want to go out at the end of my life having cared greatly for my people with a smile on my face and a giant bouquet of flowers that I grew myself.

Another major theme of my work. Your job is not to be good, it is to become. ⁠⁠

Depression update:
Thanks to the science of mental health drugs...I no longer feel like I might cry at any moment. I no longer feel exhausted after just a few tasks. I no longer have spontaneous negative thoughts about how awful everything is- when it isn’t.

I want to thank my physician for believing me. Dr. Boury with @thechristhospital asked me all the right questions. She even asked me if I was in a household where my spouse was equally sharing the load!
She was kind, thorough, and compassionate. This is the kind of care women need.

I also want to thank everyone who reminded me how important this conversation is. If you are struggling, reach out or get help. If your Dr. struggles with stigma, get a new one.

At some point in our culture, leisure became about fitness, food became about diet and control, and everything became about personal achievement. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I want my leisure back. I want to move my body without wondering how impactful it is to my cardio. I want to eat without wondering how it impacts my calorie intake. I want to rest without wondering if it will impact my quarterly goals. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Let's reclaim leisure.⁠⁠

This is what depression looks like. Not what you’d think. Yesterday I had a photo shoot for a new project. I felt fierce and also like I was about to crumble inside. I also went to the Dr and advocated for my mental health. I did not feel fierce, even though I was more badass in that moment.

I advocated for my mental health because I had too many days where I thought I should go back to bed and try again tomorrow (we all need those from time to time, but when it becomes a regular feeling it’s worth noting). I found most days I had no drive. I felt routinely like there was a well of tears waiting to burst forth from just behind my eyes.

If we’re going to talk about our wellbeing here, then we’re going to talk about all of it. I want you to know if you need help, it’s okay to get it. It does not make you weak. It does not mean you’re a failure.

This year has been epically hard. You are amazingly resilient, as am I. Sometimes that resilience comes in the form of mental health drugs and therapy.

I used to say that self care was an act of celebration that you exist. But, most days celebration just doesn't seem tangible. All of my therapist friends keep saying that our brains aren't hardwired for this. I believe them and I appreciate that they keep reminding me. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
So this year, self care is an act of insistence on your survival. Yes. That seem appropriate for this year. Let's go with that. Self Care = Survival. ⁠⁠

This is perhaps one of the greatest themes of my work. The conventional narrative is that our wellbeing is dependent on our personal behaviors. That just doesn't hold in real life- especially in a global pandemic. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Please remember that your wellbeing is a result of a multitude of factors in your life. It's okay to grant yourself some grace. ⁠⠀

No. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
This is a word I am getting so good at saying. If the ask negatively impacts my wellbeing or capacity for self care then the answer is no. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I thought I was good at boundaries before, but the past twelve months showed me just how much more I needed to say no to. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
No I will not get involved in a conversation with your family.⁠⠀
No I will not weigh in on someone else's COVID decisions.⁠⠀
No I will not attend that virtual happy hour. ⁠⠀
No I will not get you another snack.⁠⠀
No I will not listen to you complain about picking up your toys. ⁠⠀
No I will not sacrifice my self care hour.⁠⠀

Feeling fiery. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Too many women I work with feel like failures. The reality is that the invisible load that is inherently expected of women is unsustainable. It's time to understand this for what it is. We need system change to flourish. If the system won't change then we'll have to set better boundaries. ⁠⠀
