#14 - Caity Curtis - Improv, Mindfulness and Creativity

Caity Curtis has made a career for herself being an improvisor and improv teacher. In our conversation, we talk about improv and what it tells us about ourselves and how it teaches us to let go of our inner chatter.

There is a lot of cross over in the art of improv and creating positive visions for your life. We explore the intersection of improv, creativity and also life coaching.

Caity believes in putting a variety of voices on stage and has made it her mission to do so this year as the Associate Artistic Director of the board for the Winnipeg Improv Festival.

#12 - The Stories We Tell Ourselves

#12 - The Stories We Tell Ourselves

Our beliefs are formed from stories. We take little meanings from our experiences and decide to take them as truth. Unconsciously of course. Until we over come the story by happening around it or actively change it, we are unknowingly controlled by these little rules. 

 

I discover stories about myself often. I try my best, when I discover a story that is negatively serving me to decide not to believe it. If it is just a story, I can choose to believe a new story. It is up to me what I believe and what rule influences my decisions. 

 

Today I unveiled a new story.

#11 - Becoming a Visionary with Powerful Visualization

#11 - Becoming a Visionary with Powerful Visualization

We can't create the life of our dreams if we don't have a clear picture of what that looks like! People who are considered visionaries are able to paint a vivid dream with exact details, share it with others, and keep it in sight while they continue to take action until it becomes a reality. It's a skill that anyone can learn.

In this episode, I'll walk you through why visualizations are so powerful and how to create one for your own dreams. There is a guided visualization to create your ideal day. 

Let me know what you created by leaving a comment below!

#10 - Kristjanna Oleson - Self-Care and Honouring Yourself by Paying Attention

Kristjanna is an educator, musician, reiki healer and intentional-living junkie. She is passionate about putting herself first and encouraging others to do the same. She believes if we all spent time on self-care first, there would be a lot less illness, stress and negativity in the world.

In our conversation, we discuss self-care and what that really means and looks like. Listening to your body, listening to your authentic voice, and how to slow down and start putting ourselves first. We even cover that frightful topic of saying "No!".

This is a great message for women to listen to - so share it with your girlfriends and send them some love!

#09 - Start Before You're Ready, FOCUS, and Trust that the Universe Has Your Back

#05 - Letting Go of Expectations and Moving into Fun Flow

#05 - Letting Go of Expectations and Moving into Fun Flow

The end of the year is often a time of reflection on the past and desires for the future. But if we approach it from an angle of expectation, where we thought we should be at this time, what results we wanted to have, we can really stress ourselves out if our reality looks a little different. 

I caught myself trying to fit the present moment into expectations instead of playing and flowing naturally with what is. 

This is just a little reminder to help you let go of expectations with me.

#03 - What is Life Coaching?

#03 - What is Life Coaching?

In this episode I’ll give you a intro to what life coaching is. It’s not just this hippy-dippy, touchy-feely woo woo stuff. It is actual practical resources and processes to help you achieve the goals you want to reach.  

A life coach is a lot like a sports coach (it is branched off of sports coaching). Being a figure skating coach, I can easily draw the similarities and each experience improves the other.  

In skating, I wear different hats. I am a teacher of skills, I am a critic, I am a choreographer, I am a goal setter, I am a planner, I am a guide, I am a manager and I am a cheerleader. 

With life coaching, I am a listener, I am a questioner, I am a goal setter, I am a planner, I am a guide, I am a manager, I am a cheerleader.

#01 - My Story Evolving from a Negative to Positive Mindset

Three years ago I found myself at my lowest point mentally. I was full of anxieties and fear and had formed a really negative mindset about my reality. It took a wake up call for me to start looking around and questioning what was going on. Why was I feeling so bad? How could I change it?

In this episode I'll share with you how I picked up myself up, dusted myself off and started to make positive shifts to my mindset and world around me.

We create our reality and can create a life we truly love if we are willing to turn inwards and listen.
