Aligning your life with your purpose leads to fulfillment at work and home because you are able to recognize the ways your actions connect to what you value. What’s Your Purpose? Having specific goals that guide the way you life can feel a bit daunting, especially if you don’t know what your purpose is. To help you have a better understanding of your values and how you define your purpose, begin by asking yourself a few questions.

You Need a Theme Song

While music, in general, offers much value, having a theme song is a great way to remind us of our goals and keep us trudging along in those difficult moments. Popping in your ear buds and cranking up “your song” reminds us who we are, why we’re here, and what we want to do. It allows us to express our emotions while giving us a much-needed boost to transcend the moment.

Strengthen Your Meaning and Purpose in Times of Struggle

Our personal and professional lives are constantly changing and evolving. To boot, many women hold multiple jobs. For example, women may hold a formal job or career (that brings home an income) in addition to informal, often unnoticed “behind the scenes” work that is unpaid. Many of us are raising children or caring for aging parents, both of which involve spending earned income!

Kakeibo: The Art of Financial Mindfulness

By Gina Messina, Ph.D. About a year ago, a friend introduced me to Kakeibo, the Japanese art of budgeting and applying mindfulness to our spending, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. You see, I am a major contributor to our consumeristic culture. I see something shiny and I think I have to have it. A friend jokes that she hates going shopping with me because I have to pick up and touch everything on the shelves (although I’ve eliminated that practice due to COVID!).  Like so many of us, I am easily persuaded by marketing tactics. Now that we so rarely spend cash, it feels like I can simply swipe a card, click a button, or use my fingerprint and suddenly I have a new…

Refocus on Your Ambitions, Create a Vision Board

Vision is crucial to our success. Driving your car during heavy snow or rainstorm isn’t comfortable, especially when you have old windshield wipers screeching back and forth. Or, if you experience the double whammy: the bad wipers and the “Oh no! I’m almost out of windshield wiper fluid” moment. You can’t see as clearly as you need to and panic sets in. For our own safety and sanity, you may decide to pull over to the side of the road until the storm passes. The experience of being caught in a heavy storm while driving can be a metaphor for life — it can feel scary, may take special maneuvering, and sometimes causes you to stop and re-evaluate the situation. You may even find yourself…

How to Find Motivation When You Feel Like Giving Up

How to Find Motivation When You Feel Like Giving Up. We’ve all been there: we know we want to accomplish something, but we just can’t seem to make ourselves do it. Maybe you want to start an exercise regimen, or spend less time on your phone. You know you want to do this, and at the same time, you don’t feel very motivated. Especially with the new year approaching, many of us are making goals for ourselves that we want to be able to accomplish. So how can you keep up the motivation, even when you feel like giving up?
