How to Plan Your Unstoppable Year Ahead

How to Plan Your Unstoppable Year Ahead

Even though we are already halfway through January, it's not too late to plan out our goals, dreams and desires for the year ahead. Having a clear plan helps to direct the Universe. It also makes our days flow with more ease and allows us to make decisions from a place of alignment.

Once we know what we want to accomplish, we can then work with the natural energies of our cycle, as well as factor in key astrological and numerology dates, to map out how we will manifest our intentions.

I want to share with you how I've been planning out my unstoppable year for 2019, (my planning is still in process, and will probably continue until Chinese New Year in February). I use a combination of woo-woo new age tools along with practical coaching strategies. I will also use many of these tools ongoing throughout the year when I check-in, reflect and review throughout the year- especially on new and full moons.

5 Signs You’re Burning-Out and How to Stop It

5 Signs You’re Burning-Out and How to Stop It

You might think that burnout is something that only happens to other people, busier people, more important people. But let me tell you that burnout is a very real problem, especially for solopreneurs.

Maybe burnout affects us ambitious entrepreneurial women because we have such a soul connection with our business and our success in our work lies solely on our shoulders.

I know I have done my fair share of 14+ hour days as a business owner over the years (especially during times like launching) even though one of the reasons for starting my own business was to have freedom and NOT be tied to my computer all day!

Focusing so much attention on your business is not actually a wise decision- not if you want to achieve a work/life balance that makes you and your family happy. Even if you’re single, making time for self-care and relaxation will improve your overall health and mental wellbeing and your ability to work on your business successfully.

So let’s look at some of the signs to look for that indicate you might be headed toward burnout. If you can relate to any of these, then it’s time to reassess things in your life right now, because burnout is difficult (and costly!) to recover from!

12 Healthy Habits Every Entrepreneur Needs to Have to Be Unstoppable

12 Healthy Habits Every Entrepreneur Needs to Have to Be Unstoppable

Let’s face it, as entrepreneurs our lives are pretty hectic! If your days are like mine, then they are jam-packed and non-stop from the time you wake up until you finally close the lid of your laptop and go to bed.

There’s getting you and your family up and ready in the morning, then working hard all day, planning healthy meals, doing activities for the kids after school, working on your business once the house is finally quiet well into the late night (especially during launches!)…then there are unexpected  things like our kid gets sick, or we have an unexpected deadline at the same time as a we are trying to get our weekly blog post out, or our partner needs to go out of town for his work, leaving us to manage everything on our own…..it’s not a wonder we push ourselves into the brink of burnout.

Being burnout and suffering adrenal fatigue is the opposite to being an Unstoppable woman who can go about her day feeling radiant, with boundless energy and endless inspiration. The good news is, by managing stress in a positive way, these negative consequences can be avoided and you can be on top of your game to do it all.

The general key is to practice self-care. I talk about the importance of self-care all the time, but that’s because a lot of stressors in our life can be eliminated or decreased by following a simple routine that puts our health and wellness first.

Read on for the 12 healthy habits to help you manage the stress, prevent the overwhelm and have the energy you need to be unstoppable!

10 Ways to Break-Free From Stress for Women Who Hate to Meditate

10 Ways to Break-Free From Stress for Women Who Hate to Meditate

Meditation is great for relieving and dealing with stress, and all of the issues that come along with it. But it's not the only way to get there.

The whole purpose of meditating is to calm the mind and emotions and relax our physical body too. I know for some people, finding the time and learning how to meditate can lead to more stress and anxiety, especially if it feels “too hard” or like it’s “not working”.

Luckily for you, there are other ways to minimise stress that don’t involve meditating. So let’s talk about some of the other things to try if meditation is not exactly your thing

4 Surprising Reasons Why You’re Gaining Weight

4 Surprising Reasons Why You’re Gaining Weight

This blog post is for you, if you feel like you are doing everything “right” but your body seems to be functioning “all wrong”.

This information is for you if you’re positive that you're not eating more food or “junkier” food but you're still gaining weight.

This is for you if you feel bigger than ever, even though you are eating intuitively, only when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full and really listening to what your body needs (and definitely not bingeing), but your clothes no longer fit you and you’ve gone up one or two dress sizes in a matter of months.

You might be asking yourself, how is this possible? Am I totally crazy?

Darling, you definitely are NOT crazy!

And here's why.

Whilst in theory the whole “calories in, calories out” argument makes sense, it’s an overly simplistic view of weight.

There's definitely more to the story than just what you're eating. For sure you can’t out-exercise a bad diet, but even following a healthy diet can still mean you have difficulty in losing weight and you can even gain weight despite being “good”.

A lot of this comes right down to your metabolic rate which is affected by things like your activity level, history of dieting, body composition, and even what you eat. Unexplained weight gain is usually a message from our body- which means we need to stop and listen to what it’s telling us so we can rectify things.

How to Keep a Positive Mindset and Clear Negativity as an Entrepreneur

How to Keep a Positive Mindset and Clear Negativity as an Entrepreneur

Without a doubt, so much of our success and wellbeing as an entrepreneur really comes down to our mindset. Being able to ward off negativity when it strikes, and to keep a positive attitude in all areas of our life, is what can make or break it for us.

Now of course, we are only human. It is completely normal for negative thoughts to creep into our day-to-day life and to cause little bumps in our lives. Its when these thoughts become a pattern that they become not only harder to shake, but they can also affect our ambition and ability to navigate through our daily tasks as fluidly as wed like.

Negative thought patterns can also affect our sleep, motivation, productivity, emotional strength and stability. Negative energy has this way of being able to pull us down, and the unconscious mind works in such powerful ways that it can diminish our happiness and make us feel badly about certain things in our life.

Sometimes, our mindset can be affected by stress and overwhelm in trying to juggle everything in our business and life. Other times our moods can swing due to our menstrual cycles, the lunar cycle or even just the weather getting us down. It may seem like there is no good reason to be feeling negative, whilst other times it might be very clear what has caused the shift in mood and thinking.
