Why you can't let comparison steal your joy

March 12, 2020

It’s a natural instinct to compare yourself to other people, from when you were very young to now. Does that kid have better toys? Did Aaron get a higher score on that test? Why didn’t I get accepted to that college too? I just got a new job, but my friend still has a better one.

Bring on the spring! Music to inspire a fresh start.

February 27, 2020

It’s not uncommon to do a deep clean of our homes this time of year. Many of us feel the urge to spring clean — opening windows, bringing in the fresh air, and getting rid of that pile of clothes accumulating in the corner of the closet. But just as we spring clean our homes, it never hurts to spring clean our minds.

Sorry, not sorry. Why apologizing all the time is a bad idea.

Sorry, not sorry. Why apologizing all the time is a bad idea.

February 20, 2020

You may not think you over apologize, but how often do you say sorry when something was clearly out of your control, like when you sneeze, or you walk through a door at the same time as someone else, or when someone spills their coffee on their new shirt?

How to have difficult conversations

How to have difficult conversations

January 30, 2020

Difficult conversations, those talks we don’t really want to have, aren’t fun. From asking your parents for that one gift that was just out of reach, to breaking off a relationship, to navigating the manager/employee dynamic, tough discussions are just that — tough. But with a little preparation and connection to your empathic side, you can make difficult conversations a little easier.

Three ways to be a more empathetic leader

January 23, 2020

And, if you don’t take time to understand what you’re feeling, how can you lead yourself?
