That feeling where you were so immersed and absorbed in the activity that you lost track of time. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the author of “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience,” has described this state as “flow” where [...]

Why You Shouldn’t Be Making New Year’s Resolutions and What to Do Instead

Let’s get real. According to a recent study by the University of Scranton, only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s Resolution(s). Realistically speaking, I’m not surprised given that we live in a short-attention span, instant gratification, quick-fix society. Becoming our best and achieving our goals is a committed journey and steady climb to the [...]

Daily Inspo: Play Offense

Now that the Summer Olympics are well under way in RIO, I thought a good topic to discuss in today’s Daily Inspo is Playing Offense in Life--Cultivating an Offensive Mindset. So what does that mean exactly? Well in sports, when a team is playing offense they’re sole objective is to score- they have the ball [...]

Daily Inspo: Refueling on Your Road Trip

I love to think of our journey in life as a road trip. Being that I’ve taken so many road trips lately (you can read my Healthy Eating Tips for a Southern Road Trip here!), this analogy seems fitting right now. The aspect of this analogy that I want to dive into today is the [...]

Daily Inspo: Don’t Hope. Expect.

Hey, Strong Girl! Take a moment to reflect on your life right now. Is there anything you’ve been hoping that may happen? Do you remember a recent conversation where you’ve said, “hopefully, x, y and z will happen?” Or, where you’ve responded to someone with these 3 little words, “I hope so.” We’re all guilty [...]

Daily Inspo: Life Happens For You
