Today I’m diving into one of my favorite books, Atomic Habits by James Clear! I have a ridiculous amount of takeaways from this book - the whole thing is underlined, dog-eared, and annotated…my grandma (who reveres books!) would be a little aghast at how marked up this book is, but I think it’s just a testament to how much I’ve learned! 😉One of my favorite takeaways from Atomic Habits is the Goldilocks Rule, which tells us that humans experience peak motivation when working on tasks that are right on the edge of our current abilities. So it’s not too easy, not too hard, but just right (just like Goldilocks!).So if you have found yourself:🌟 lacking motivation🌟 feeling stuck in pursuit of your goals🌟 losing steam🌟 having a hard time showing up for yourself…then today’s episode was recorded just for you, friend. I found James’ insights to be super encouraging, inspiring, and most importantly, actionable. So tune in today if you too are ready to pursue goals of just manageable difficulty in order to create and sustain motivation!ResourcesFull Show NotesLove LetterLBD Collective Health Coaching Services @mskatehouse Atomic Habits by James ClearConnect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram
This is the hardest episode I've ever recorded, but it's deeply important to me to show up for you authentically. Usually, that's as the "happiness and joy" podcaster, but I now also need to honor when I'm in a season that's heavy and grief-filled. Because I'm learning that joy and grief are two sides of the same coin, and they're both part of our human experience. So I'm going to hold space within me, and here on the podcast, for both.So it's in David's memory, and to honor all that he taught me, that I record this episode for him, for me, and for you today. I'm still deeply in this season of grief, but there are beautiful things I learned from David that I feel are important to share. Things like embracing the current moment, enjoying the simple pleasures of life, and how we're all capable of sharing love.If after listening, you too want to support David's Memorial Fund at the Naples Zoo, you're welcome to do so at with a note that it's "In memory of David Freyhof." With infinite love, I bring this episode to you, friend.
Earlier this week we connected with Talia Joy of the Awakening Her Podcast, and we shared a conversation all about manifestation, the law of attraction, and what it’s like to experience this world as an empath or as a highly sensitive person.One of my takeaways from our conversations was feeling empowered. Empowered to fully step into myself, and what I might have once seen as a quirk before, I now know is part of me being, and I’m learning to embrace being a highly sensitive person. There’s a freedom in no longer apologizing for what makes you different, and instead celebrating it within myself.And it’s my hope that today’s meditation, which is inspired by an Instagram post I saw from @marcandangel, gives you some of that freedom and permission to love yourself just as you are too.ResourcesFull Show NotesLove LetterLBD Collective Health Coaching Services @mskatehouse Connect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram

In light of May being mental health awareness month, I’m excited to sit down and speak with Lynn Jimenez, a licensed clinical social worker, who specializes in mindfulness practices and stress reduction, and is the founder of Connect Flow Grow.For years Lynn experienced anxiety but thought that the tightness in her chest, thumping heart, and racing mind were her baseline setting. It was only when she was diagnosed with anxiety that she realized things could be different...that she didn’t have to feel this way all of the time.Which is when mindfulness practices entered her life in a big way. She started only saying yes to the things that didn’t raise her stress levels, she prioritized her physical outlets like CrossFit and Yoga, spent time outside daily, ate well (think fewer processed foods, more whole foods), meditated, and journaled.And you know what? It helped!So friend, if you too are ready to reduce stress with a clear mindfulness practice, press play and let’s learn from Lynn together.ResourcesShow NotesLove LetterLBD Collective Health Coaching Services @mskatehouse Connect with Lynn JimenezConnect Flow Grow@connectflowgrowLynn’s ResourcesBroken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow” by Elizabeth LesserThe Artist’s Way by Julia CameronWhat Happened to You?: Conversation on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing by Oprah Winfrey and Bruce D PerryThe Deepest Well: Healing the Long-Term Effects of Childhood Trauma and Adversity by Nadine Burke Harris, MDThe Lotus by Amirah MorrisConnect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram
I have big goals I’m working towards and I really do love being productive, marking things off my to-do list, and making progress.But sometimes I can get so caught up in what the future holds that I forget to “be where my feet are.” Because of that, I have to be extra purposeful in my mindfulness practices so I’m actually here to experience life for myself and with my boys and my husband.I was recently wrestling with feelings of doing and being enough, and then it was like the universe was speaking to me because I kept hearing little whisperings along the lines of, “you are enough.”One of those little nudges was when I read this Instagram post from Laura Jane Jones @laurajaneillustrations, which is all about knowing that you’re doing your best and that your best is enough.So if you’re ready to ditch weighing your self-worth by your productivity and instead desire to honor that you’re doing your best (which is always enough), then I invite you to slow down and meditate with me today.

“Change is uncomfortable. It’s helpful to understand the process we go through emotionally when we are faced with change so we won’t be derailed by it.”                                                             - Excerpt from The 12 Week Year -Today we’re diving into the five emotions we all experience when implementing change. They’re what makes up the EMOC (emotional cycle of change), and they go like this:⭐ Uninformed Optimism⭐ Informed Pessimism⭐ The Valley of Despair⭐ Informed Optimism⭐ SuccessThe third experience, known as the Valley of Despair, is our main focus during this mini podcast episode. Because I would argue that if you’re aware that this feeling will occur when making shifts in your own life, then you’ll be more likely to stick with it and see the new habit, skill, or change through to the end. So if you’re ready to have a plan in place for when things get challenging (and they will!) then pop in those ear buds and let's get motivated to stay the course together.ResourcesFull Show NotesLove Letter Sign-UpJoin The LBD Collective Health Coaching with Kate @mskatehouse The 12 Week Year by Brian P Morgan and Michael LenningtonAtomic Habits by James ClearConnect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram

Have you heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals? Traditionally, this is the approach to goal-setting we’ve been taught. S.M.A.R.T. goals are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time bound.But what if there were another way to approach goal setting? One that didn’t delay feelings of success for the very end, but one that celebrated who you were becoming in the pursuit of your goals, each and every day?Well that is exactly what my personal business coach Amelia Travis teaches us today when she shares her approach to D.E.E.P. goal setting, which involves goals that are:Desire-basedEmotionally-informedEnergy-alignedPleasureableSo if you’re ready to shift from outcome-based goals to ones that are identity-based, then pop in your earbuds and press play. ResourcesFull Show NotesLove Letter Sign-UpJoin The LBD Collective Health Coaching with Kate @mskatehouse Book RecommendationsAtomic Habits by James ClearFeminine Genius: The Provocative Path to Waking Up and Turning On the Wisdom of Being a Woman by LiYana SilverPatriarchy Stress Disorder: The Invisible Barrier to Women’s Happiness and Fulfillment by Valerie ReinWild Power: Discover the Magic of Your Menstrual Cycle and Awaken the Feminine Path to Power by Sjanie Wurlitzer and Alexandra PopeConnect with Amelia TravisInstagram @ameliatravisAmelia Travis Connect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram
“Your mindset is a set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation.” verywellmind.comIf you have spent any amount of time online then you have probably heard about mindset. Sometimes mindset can feel a little intangible which is why I took a deep dive this month in the LBD Collective into learning what exactly mindset means and why it does actually matter.I like to equate the idea of mindset to going to the doctor’s office for an eye exam. Your doctor puts different lenses in front of your eyes, and you have to say which prescription is best. Each set of lenses may be marginally different, but you have to figure out which one is the best fit. And I feel as if mindset is similar to those lenses. Your mindset is the lens through which you view the world, and you have the ability to shift them until you find the one that best benefits you.In today’s conversation, we’ll talk about the six most studied mindsets paying particular attention to the growth vs fixed mindset, and how these mindsets exist on a continuum. Then we finish with how to move towards a growth mindset, why it matters, and the five different ways to shift your mindset going forward.ResourcesFull Show NotesLove Letter Sign-UpJoin The LBD Collective Health Coaching with Kate @mskatehouse Connect with Liz Chapman - Podcast ManagerWebsiteInstagram
