How to Get Better at Not Caring What Others Think

This is actually an article I’ve been wanting to write for a long time – probably years actually. It’s a topic I’ve thought about since middle school, and something I’ve wanted to conquer since forever. I kept pushing off writing it because I didn’t think I was *there* yet, or always felt like I still cared a little bit. and I mean, I do. I think we’d all be lying…

5 Ways to Switch Your Brain Off At Night

Y’all have probably gathered by now that I’m very into getting good sleep and having a strong nightly routine. My sleep and the routine I rely on to help me get that sleep are two things I really try not to sacrifice no matter what day of the week it is. But it occurred to me recently that I haven’t shared much about what I do before my routine – you know, what…

How to Actually Learn From the Info We Consume

What I’m writing about today actually has me fired up and I’ve been SUPER excited to share this post. Does that make me a #nerd? Anyways, it’s something I think about often – how much I consume information and don’t necessarily let it sink it. Sure, I’ll learn some stuff, but am I really utilizing that information I just consumed as much as possible? Usually not. Unless I journal hardcore…

What Likable People Have in Common

Do you ever wonder what others think about you? Not in the comparison or I need to be perfect kind of way, but more the self-improvement kind of way. Like, you want to make sure you’re being a good friend, but it can be kind of awkward to out of nowhere ask one of your girlfriends, “Hey, am I a good friend?” Plus, if your friend has feedback, all the…

25 Things You *Should* Be Doing At 25

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably realized by now that #adulting is actually way harder than we all thought it was when we were kids. I honestly still don’t feel like an “adult” most days, I just read a lot of self-help books (I HIGHLY recommend it) that help keep me in check. Seriously though, there’s a list a million things long that I feel like I should have…

Before we dive in, I just want to say that these are not what defines a confident woman, just some of the habits she might practice on a daily basis.

5 December Expenses I’m Budgeting For

Does anyone else think that November flew by? Like somehow it should still be October in my mind? But here we are, December! Did you guys enjoy the blast post at the beginning of last month talking about budgeting in November? Based on the analytics on my end, it seemed like you did! So I decided to bring it back for December and share my thoughts on how we can prepare…

8 Things You Can Do Every Day to Be More Confident

One of the things I’m most thankful for in life is that my parents worked to raise us as confident people. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still something I struggle with EVERY SINGLE DAY, but it’s always been instilled in me. That I’m good enough. That I’m loved. And even though I know that in the back of my head, it doesn’t mean I don’t question decisions and feel like…

How to Prioritize When Everything Is Important

So many successful people talk about the importance of prioritizing and how it’s such a necessary skill in being able to get things done. But I’m over here, nodding my head, like yes yes yes. Okay totally. I agree, but the question is: HOW? How do I actually prioritize when literally everything feels (and seems) important? I clearly can’t do it all at once. Even though I still struggle with this, I’ve learned a lot along the way. So here is exactly what I do when I need to figure out how to prioritize my overwhelming list of things to do, step-by-step.

How To Be A Good Roommate

When the word “roommate” comes to mind, a positive association doesn’t always come with it. And it’s totally understandable why. Many of us have had at least one not-so-great experience with a roommate – I’ve for sure had my fair share of not-so-ideal roommates experiences as well. Luckily, I’m in a great situation now, but I’ve definitely learned a lot along the way.

Getting The Right Things Done: Important vs. Urgent

Prioritizing your to-do list (and life) is obviously a personal process, but that doesn’t mean you should start from scratch. There’s a lot to learn from smart people who did great things and got a lot of *ish* done. I basically stalk successful people. Just kidding, but what I mean is that I love learning how they think and how they get things done. It helps me to see the world differently, improve my own processes, and think outside the box.

Why Time Management Is So Important For Success

I’m not going to pretend I’m a pro at managing my time or anything like that… and if you follow me on Insta Story this is probably obvious, but I tend to perform a heck of a lot better when I know the WHY behind things I’m doing. Some intention ya know? So what I share in this post is really going to help you get a handle on why managing your time effectively is important and what you stand to gain from it — at least that’s what learning the WHY has done for me.

How and Why to Do a Self-Assessment of Your Life [Free Download!]

Doing my annual review each year always reminds me of how football coaches have to watch (and study!) game replay tapes. Like video replays, data doesn’t lie. The important part here is that you look at what happened without bias or judgement; simply identify the facts. This can be challenging though because a lot of the time your perception and/or memory doesn’t always match up perfectly with reality. It’s important…

Self Awareness & Why You Should Pay More Attention To Yourself

At its core, self-awareness means understanding your emotions, strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, and beliefs – and how they impact YOU, your world, and those around you. Sounds great, right? But also a little elusive too. So like, HOW does one become self-aware? And why should you invest in doing so? Well, let’s talk about it.

The Key To a Healthy Complexion with SK-II

   As you’ve probably noticed from the content I’ve been publishing on my blog this year, I’m trying my best to become a healthier person. Throughout my early twenties I didn’t feel a huge need or pull to focus on health, mainly because it seems like that’s just done for you. You have a faster metabolism, are still strong from sports played in high school or college, your skin is…

4 Signs It’s Time To Slow Your Roll

I know I sound like a broken record, but it’s been way too easy to get overwhelmed these days. I think it was a month-long funk mixed with just feeling pretty blah about work (and life to be honest) for much of June and July. I know that sounds negative (I don’t mean to be – just being honest), but I also think that sometimes when we run ourselves too hard,…

How to Improve Your Self-Discipline

For some reason, the idea of discipline has always really interested me. There are people who seem to kill the discipline game - those friends that never eat bad food, stick to their calendar exactly, train for a marathon every single day, etc...and then there are the rest of us.
