Episode #089 - The New Version of the Happy Hour

WELCOME TO EPISODE #089 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

The moment you hear the words “happy hour” you immediately think of a bunch of friends or co-workers sitting around having a drink at around 5:05pm (or sooner depending on how the week went.)

This podcast will change the imagery you think of when hearing those words, but it also will change your life for the better.

In this episode, I will discuss the new version of a “happy hour” which is dedicated to your self care and will help you raise your levels of happiness, focus and energy throughout a hectic week.

By dedicating this time for yourself and deliberately implementing happiness into your week, it becomes the best meeting you’ll have.

For those that don’t think they have the time, I give you a fool proof way to find the time.

Episode #085 - Redefine Your Happiness

WELCOME TO EPISODE #085 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

When we are born, we’re pretty limited in our emotions and even more so limited in what causes our happiness or sadness.

As we grow and experience life, we create this unique collection of things, experiences, sounds, sights, people, etc. that bring us joy.

However, in the age of social media when we’re too busy scrolling other peoples’ lives, we have lost touch with what makes us happy in our core.

In this episode, I will give you an incredibly simple trick to redefine your happiness and use that trick to bring bliss into every single day of your life moving forward.

Episode #079 - The Constant Process of Improvement

WELCOME TO EPISODE #079 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

It’s that time of year again: Resolution Season!

The time where we reflect on the past year and focus on what we’re going to change or improve in the new year. Typically it’s a huge life change and/or ridding ourselves of our decade long bad habit.

But what if you shifted your mindset with the understanding that it would bring longer lasting change, goal achievement and life happiness?

By treating our lives like a homeowner treats their house, you can get more done throughout the year and find the time to enjoy your progress at the same time.

Whether you’re changing the lightbulb of life or replacing the exploding water heater of your career, all of life’s to-do list is much more manageable with a few minor tweaks.
