The ultimate journaling exercise for a purposeful and motivated 2017

The end of the calendar year is a great time to reflect on the past 12 months. It’s also a great to re-asses where’ we’re at and set new goals and intentions for how we’d like to move forward.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve loved helping my coaching clients to map out and plan their amazing 2017’s. Because, as the saying goes, ‘a goal without a plan is just a wish!’.

Video | How to stop procrastinating

The procrastination fairy casts her spell on all of us sometimes - and it seems like every day technology gives us another way to procrastinate!

To kick procrastination's butt, we need to train our brain to be able to focus in on one thing at a time instead of constantly searching for higher levels of stimulation. Why? Because not only do we get more done, but it keeps our stress levels way down! If you're someone who gets anxious or overwhelmed, it's likely your brain craves a too-high level of stimulation - ie. checking your phone while watching TV or having the urge to look at Instagram mid convo.
