In this podcast, I’m sharing a new technique that I’ve been using to become more present, aware, and mindful – which is leading me to generate more happiness in my life because this method is allowing me to call up memories, sensations, and feelings when I desire them. Imprinting. Have you ever wanted to be more present? In this podcast, I’m introducing you to the idea of imprinting, and how you can do it so that you can create more joy in your life.

Done with Dieting Episode #105: Healing Trauma with Denita Bremer

Since the pandemic, we’ve been hearing a lot about trauma. It can feel confusing because for many of us, we were raised by parents who didn’t believe that they had the luxury of being able to deal with it.

Done with Dieting Episode #100: Letters To My Future Selves

A phrase that has been popping up for me recently has been, “who you are becoming is far more important than what you are doing. And yet, it’s what you are doing that is shaping who you are becoming.” You can’t change your past. However, you can actively shape who you desire to be. Your past experiences do not determine what you can accomplish in life moving forward. We can change who we are becoming – and chart out a future that we want instead of letting the choices of the day determine our future. In this super vulnerable episode, I’ve started a project where I’m publicly stating my goals for the next 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 3 years, 5 years, and 10 years – and then as those milestones come to pass, I’ll reflect on how things have changed, what I learned, and who I had to Read More . . .
