Whose Boxes Are You Checking?

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

I used to think I needed to check SO many boxes. I mindlessly pursued the next “thing” because it was what was “normal” to me. It was what I thought other people expected.  Everything from college, to spending years pursuing a 9-5 job, to marriage, to how much sleep I should expect to get, to how busy I “should” be, it all went without question. I just accepted the struggle and hustle for what’s next because it was all I knew. It’s how everyone I knew lived their lives. At some point, I felt like I was working so hard, and nothing was working. I was not happy. …

Letting Go of Anger & Resentment

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

Ohhh, anger. Why oh why do we have such a complex relationship with anger?! Here’s the thing – when I think about anger, I immediately think of pain. Let me tell you why. I truly believe that most of our anger can be rooted back to hurt in one way or another, whether it’s crossed boundaries that built to resentment, feeling taken advantage of, repeated disappointment or betrayal. Whatever it may be, our anger is usually a good sign that we’ve been hurt.  Resentment comes when we try to push away how we really feel. Do that long enough, and …

Sleep Hacks for the Insomniac in You

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

So many of my clients describe feeling tired and depleted ALL THE TIME. When I ask them about their relationship with sleep or how their sleep hygiene is, I’m often met with a blank stare. Changing your relationship with/habits around sleep is one of THE most beneficial things you can do for your young adult self – in all aspect. Career, relationships, health, you name it!!  Listen, I get it…I’ve struggled with sleep since the time I came out of the womb. Seriously, ask my mom. It was not fun for her (or me).  A normal night used to look …

In Career, Friends, Happiness, Life Coach, Personal Growth, Relationships by Chelsea Connors3 Comments

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.

My Anti Suck It Up Approach to Life

In Abundance, Career, Friends, Happiness, Life Coach, Personal Growth, Positivity by Chelsea Connors5 Comments

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 …

Tools & Apps I’m Loving Lately!

In Career, Happiness, Health, Life Coach, Mental Health, Mindfulness, Personal Growth, Therapy, wellness by Chelsea Connors1 Comment

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 …
