7 Tips for Starting Conversations as a Self Conscious Millennial

In Career, Friends, Happiness, Life Coach, Personal Growth, Relationships by Chelsea Connors1 Comment

Oh the art of conversation starting. Let’s talk about it! It’s pretty common to feel unsettled about your friendships by your mid twenties. People start changing, growing, and moving more and more towards who they’re going to be as adults.  This means that friends you thought you’d have for life could begin to feel kind of like strangers. It’s really normal to start feeling like all of a sudden you don’t enjoy the same old shit you used to. We may be placed in new environments and situations that make you feel unsure. Most of the time this goes one of two ways: We keep hanging out with the same old people that don’t really make us feel full, happy or complete because it’s easy and convenient. We swirl in a pool of doubt and loneliness feeling like we don’t even know how to talk to new people anymore and therefor …

My Anti Suck It Up Approach to Life

In Abundance, Career, Friends, Happiness, Life Coach, Personal Growth, Positivity by Chelsea Connors1 Comment

You’ll probably never hear me tell you to “suck it up” when it comes to your life – not your job, relationship, your body, your stress levels, your social life, etc. Nada!  Sure, there are times when we have to do things we’re not thrilled about doing but I think the idea of sucking up a lifetime of misery is simply unacceptable and an unhelpful approach to living life wholeheartedly.  So many of us are raised to believe that we should to go to school, get a job, find a partner, have a family and “make it work” and that that is the right way to do life and if you find you’re unhappy, sorry bout it! Tough shit.  In other words, if you don’t like the path you’ve chosen, suck. it. up. It’s too late. I just can’t get on board with this blasphemous, unhealthy and unhelpful approach to …

How to Turn FOMO into JOMO

In Friends, Happiness, Health, Life Coach, Mental Health, Personal Growth, Positivity by Chelsea Connors0 Comments

Ready to kick FOMO to the curb for good so you can start actually enjoying your free time? Start here! FOMO – lovingly defined as the fear of missing out. That sneaky, sneaky feeling so many of us get at the thought of claiming a night in, saying no to brunch or opting out of a weekend trip. That ache in your gut that has you feeling like sad sally on the outskirts watching life go by.  “But what if I miss something important? What if they have fun without me?! Doesn’t being alone or staying in make me a loser?”  Oh. the. worry.  FOMO can really lead us to a spiral of self doubt and anxiety. FOMO impacts so many clients that I work with, and so profoundly, that they find themselves living lives they don’t enjoy, surrounded by people they don’t actually value… OR they feel absolutely drained …

Tools & Apps I’m Loving Lately!

In Career, Happiness, Health, Life Coach, Mental Health, Mindfulness, Personal Growth, Therapy, wellness by Chelsea Connors0 Comments

I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday where my doctor needed to use some fancy technology to take a look down my throat at the cysts on my vocal cords (If you’re new here, that’s a thing I’m going through at the moment). The computer system had a glitch and while we waited for the entire system to reboot we chatted about how amazing technology is — when it works LOLZ.  I know we’ve all had the experience when technology DOESN’T work and how frustrating that can be.  But more times than not, technology shows up for us and there are SO many ways we can use it as support in our lives.  I use lots of tools to help me feel good, and support me on my mission to live life to my fullest ability.  I wanted to share some of these resources with you so you can benefit and live your …
