Stop the Downward Spiral and Reclaim Your Motivation
Send us a Text Message.Oh, Crappy Day! We all experienced those days when waking up feels like being hit by a truck, and the idea of tackling our to-do list is daunting. It's as if a heavy cloud has descended, making even simple tasks feel overwhelming.  Fortunately, psychology has a lot to say about  why we feel this way and, more importantly, what we can do about it.Feeling overwhelmed and unmotivated often results from a mix of psychological factors. One main contributor is burnout – a state of emotional, mental, and physical exhaustion due to prolonged stress. When we push ourselves too hard without adequate rest and self-care, our bodies and minds rebel, leaving us drained. Recognizing this, we can take steps to avoid the prolonging of these low times by setting up a support system to prevent it from escalating. We can keep crappy moments from turning into crappy days, weeks or even months. We may not get to choose not ever to experience "negative" emotions, challenges, or hard times. We do get to choose not to perpetuate our problems by lingering there for too long. "We may encounter many defeats, but we must not be defeated." - Maya AngelouSupport the Show.Do BOTH of us a favor ...CLICK HERE and join me on the journey to see what we are capable of when we Default to Extraordinary!

We can learn from our mistakes and grow as individuals by assessing our efforts.

Overcoming Fatigue and Overwhelm: Success Strategy to Change the Narrative
Send us a Text Message.It's easy to fall into the trap of fatigue. What starts as a harmless intention to relax for a bit can quickly spiral into a marathon of late-night streaming sessions. Before we know it, we're burning the midnight oil, juggling multiple responsibilities, and relying on caffeine to keep us going.Research reveals a compelling link between fatigue and impaired decision-making. When fatigued, our cognitive resources become depleted, making it challenging to process information, evaluate options, and make sound judgments. Sleep deprivation, a common cause of fatigue, disrupts neural networks responsible for executive functions, such as reasoning and problem-solving.You are not alone in this, but you also don't have accept this as a given part of a normal day in your busy, successful life. Fatigue may be a universal human experience, but it doesn't have to dictate our lives. By adopting proactive strategies and prioritizing self-care, we can reclaim our energy, focus, and vitality.Want to “workshop” your success strategy with me?

STOP Working On Self Improvement and Looking For Happiness, It's Closer That You Think.
Send us a Text Message.The human mind can engage in mind wandering, which can improve memory consolidation, problem-solving, and creative thinking, as well as reduce stress levels. However, prolonged mind wandering can lead to negative emotions such as stress, anxiety, and depression. Happiness is a complex mix of both mental and brain-related factors. It is important to maintain a balance between mind wandering and staying focused. Incorporating mindfulness meditation, setting realistic goals, avoiding multitasking, creating mindful rituals, and embracing self-awareness are all ways to cultivate a happier life. Pursuing well-being, a combination of happiness, health, and purpose, is a key human aspiration, even if we define well-being in different ways. What would it look like if you believed that it is all already inside you - what if you could work toward your goals without any “sense of worth” without having to bolster a sense of self-confidence, without it meaning anything about the core of who you are, if you life matter or not. What if you could just work on your goals, work on skills, and show up knowing how extraordinary you are, knowing how much you matter? And then go out and create something beautiful - music, art, business, competency, caring... whatever it is that makes your heart sing - as you get up every day and default to yes - your extraordinary self?Take the challenge! Take a week off from working on yourself in any way don’t try to change it improve or fix yourself just enjoy hanging out with your work your hobbies and your loved ones too. If you can’t bring yourself to take a whole week off take a few days off and three if you can’t bring yourself to take a few days off just take one Let me know how it goes:  https://www.speakpipe.com/defaulttoyesSupport the Show.Do BOTH of us a favor ...CLICK HERE and join me on the journey to see what we are capable of when we Default to Extraordinary!

Common Sense is Not Always Common Practice - Closing the Gap Between What We Know and What We DO

Common Sense is Not Always Common Practice - Closing the Gap Between What We Know and What We DO
Send us a Text Message.Ever wondered why common sense is not always put into action? Despite being defined as the practical ability to perceive and understand things, following common sense isn't as straightforward as it seems. Common sense isn't always common practice. Different perspectives, competing priorities, and a lack of knowledge or skills can keep up from practicing what we know. Laziness, stubbornness, or a desire to go against the norm may also contribute to the gap between common sense and common practice. While it may not always be easy, striving to follow common sense is crucial for making good decisions and leading a fulfilling life.In this episode: Psychological Insights: Our brains are wired to prioritize short-term rewards over long-term gains, a phenomenon known as temporal discounting. Breaking free from these patterns requires a conscious effort to override our default modes. Social and environmental factors play a pivotal role in shaping our behaviors. Understanding these psychological intricacies is essential in designing strategies to turn common sense into common practice.3-Step Framework: To bridge the gap between common sense and common practice, a three-step framework can be applied:Mindful Awareness:Begin by cultivating mindful awareness of your habits and choices. This self-awareness lays the foundation for intentional change.Behavioral Modification: Armed with self-awareness, focus on modifying one behavior at a time.  Behavioral science suggests that incremental changes are more likely to lead to lasting habits, as they are easier for the brain to accept and integrate.Positive Reinforcement and Social Support: Implement positive reinforcement and leverage social support to solidify the desired changes. Celebrate small victories, no matter how insignificant they may seem. Social support not only provides accountability but also fosters a sense of belonging and shared commitment.Conclusion: By taking intentional steps to align our actions with our knowledge, we can unlock the extraordinary potential within ourselves, living a life that is not just informed by common sense but actively shaped by it.If you are ready for the next step on your journey of personal growth, join me and other like minded women, nurses and entrepreneurs - Support the Show.Do BOTH of us a favor ...CLICK HERE and join me on the journey to see what we are capable of when we Default to Extraordinary!
