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 #042 - Own Your Om | The Immediate Benefits of Meditation

WELCOME TO EPISODE #042 OF THE ENRICH YOUR SOUL PODCAST

With the hustle and bustle of your daily life, it's critical that you carve out time for self-care. One of the easiest and most effective things you can do is meditate.

While it's often seen as a religious act, meditation is nothing more than a focused practice of mindfulness and calm. Having practiced meditation for over 15 years, I can sense the times where I practice more regularly vs. not. The events in my life also skew more positive, rewarding and challenges seem less daunting.

Add in the fact that it's proven to benefit your health by reducing mortality by 50%, lowering your heart rate and reducing stress, there's no reason not to give it a shot.

In this episode I'll share how it's impacted my life and how I've helped hundreds of others realize the benefit of including 30 minutes of meditation a day into your life.

There are numerous apps that can also help you get started and stay consistent with your meditation including Calm, Headspace and Meditation Studio. 

I also discuss sharing my personal meditation playlist, which will be growing, so please follow it below.
