How to Live a Happy Life

How to Live a Happy Life

SSo… You’ve checked all the boxes. You got a good education. You settled down and got married. You pursued the career. You even bought the house, had the kids, the whole thing. And yet, you still wake up some days wondering, “Is this all there is? Is this it?” And maybe you even ask yourself, “What can’t I just be fucking HAPPY!? What is the secret to happiness!!?”

I mean, you SHOULD be, right? You checked all those god-damned boxes. You did all the things. All the things that are supposed to yield happiness and somehow you’re still coming up empty. I mean… WTF!?

You wouldn’t believe how incredibly common this is. Like, staggeringly common. We live in a society that tells us how we should live our lives and in turn, how we should feel about it. So, you get to this stage of the game and you’re like, wait a minute, why don’t I feel happy?

In this week’s episode, I spill 6 suuuuper common ways you may be stifling your own happiness and ALL of them are typically done subconsciously… so yeah, you prob have no idea you’re even doing them! Have a listen and get your happy back. Boom.

This pod explores:

  • Why your value system is EVERYTHING and probably the biggest factor in your personal joy (even though it’s such a YAWN! topic… I get it)
  • Why your routine and auto-pilot schedule may be squashing your happiness + how to shift it
  • How to navigate the constant need for approval… ugh
  • How to make choices on purpose instead of constantly residing in SHOULDsville, USA



Join me for a 12-week, group coaching immersion designed to take you from struggling in the land of “shoulds”, guilt trips, and comparison to flying on the wings of confidence, courage, and self-love.

Imagine waking up feeling confident and proud of yourself! Hello!

Or how about telling someone “No, I’m not available for your event” and feeling Not. An. Ounce. Of. Guilt. Plus, now your time is all freed up for mani/pedis and mimosas.

Listen, when you actually LIKE who you are, you’ll finally start the biz you’ve been too fearful to start, finally get back in shape + love your hot bod at the same time, and/or have time for the shit you really want in your life: like finally signing up for roller derby or planning that trip to Italy. #grazie

Get ready to get waaaay more done, alleviate massive stress, and feel Waaaay. Fucking. Happier.
