Did November creep up on anyone else?! There are just two months left in 2023, so it’s time to end the year strong and intentional! In this episode, I share a year-end review process that you can use to celebrate your past accomplishments, identify life lessons, build self-trust, and make the most of the next two months! Year-end review questions: What intentions/goals/resolutions (if any) did you set last year? Did you stick to your resolution or intention? Did you reach your goal? What worked last year? Challenge yourself to think of 10 – 15 accomplishments and other things you can celebrate from the past year. What didn’t work? Why didn’t these things work? What thoughts or beliefs led you to this outcome? What life lessons did you learn? You can find the full show notes here.

We all do it. We repeat the same ol' habits and the same ol' problems show up in our lives again and again. But you can change the way you show up in your relationships, work, health journey, etc. by understanding the ways that your past experiences are influencing your current life. In this episode, I share how to recognize when you’re living in the past and what to do to overcome this and move forward. It’s time to switch off autopilot and start intentionally creating the life you want! Reflection questions mentioned in the episode: What types of situations do I typically overreact or underreact to? What unhealthy patterns do I keep repeating? What coping mechanisms do I typically reach for?

Have you constantly been told that comparing yourself to others is a bad thing? I disagree. We human beings are wired for comparison, so trying to banish it from our lives is a losing battle. It’s natural, neutral, and not a problem unless we use comparison to put ourselves down or inflate our egos. In this episode, I share how we can instead use our brain's tendency to compare for good and as fuel for our personal growth. If you often compare yourself to others and feel bad about it this episode is for you! Reflection Questions: What, exactly am I comparing here? In what ways, specifically, do I feel like I don’t measure up? What does this person have or achieved that I want? What actions did they take to achieve this or get this? What thoughts caused them to take those actions? I’m currently reading (and loving!) Katie Silcox’s new book, Glow-Worthy: Practices for Awakening Your Inner Light and Loving Yourself as You Are—Broken, Beautiful, and Sacred. Learn more about Nidhi Pandya here.

If you struggle with low self-worth you’re not alone! We often think that the next promotion, publication, certification, award, or relationship will finally make us feel worthy. But once the initial good feelings wear off, we’re back where we started… searching for the next thing to boost our self-worth. This endless, depleting cycle of trying to validate our worth inevitably leads to burnout and resentment. Luckily, your worth isn’t based on external achievements. You can develop unshakable self-worth right now - just as you are. Tune in for today’s self-worth pep talk!

For so long I fought against my period. I wanted to be “on” and super productive all the time. But a woman’s hormones ebb and flow in a predictable way over the course of her monthly cycle. These hormones affect our energy levels, skin, nutritional needs, mood, mindset, motivation, sex drive… everything! So in this episode, I share how we can work WITH our menstrual cycles and align our lives with the moon cycle. The moon cycle orchestrates the tides of the ocean and the tides of our minds and bodies. By the end of this two-part series, you’ll more deeply understand your body and you’ll know how to tap into the powers of each phase of your cycle (and the moon cycle) to plan your life and thrive!

Sunlight exposure regulates our hormones, strengthens our bones, and improves our skin. So it’s not a surprise that the sun is revered in Ayurveda and other ancient health systems. Every aspect of our health and well-being is influenced by the rhythms of the sun, and yet most of us spend the majority of our time indoors. Today I help you tap into the benefits of sunlight and teach you how to practice Ayurvedic sun bath therapy, Surya Snan.

We are each born with a unique, perfect balance of the 5 elements of nature in our bodies. Many nature-based cultures and traditions, including Ayurveda, have identified these five elements as ether, air, fire, water, and earth. As we grow up we’re exposed to different challenges, climates, relationships, seasons, etc. that cause our bodies and minds to go out of balance. These imbalances lead to physical and emotional health issues. So in this episode, I talk about how to reconnect with your true nature and return your body, mind, and spirit back to balance. This week, I chat about the first two elements (ether and air) and next week I’ll cover fire, water, and earth. Find the full show notes here.
