An Exercise in Listening

Just because we are in our bodies does not mean we always know what it’s saying.
It can also be easy to push past what our bodies are telling us when we’re at a loss.
Our overwhelming exhaustion can be ignored when we have commitments to meet.
The unsettled feeling in our gut can be explained away as indigestion.
But our bodies are also highly sophisticated machines that can do so much more than we give credit for, often times. So are you listening?

I absolutely hated running. My legs aren’t very long. I was never very athletic. Anyone I ever saw running looked like they were ready to collapse. I just knew I hated it, which is interesting because I’d never really done it.

This year, as a resolution, I started getting ready to run a 5K mostly because I was tired of saying I couldn’t do something. The surprising thing? I actually love running! I’m still not very fast and my legs have yet to grow any longer, but it turns out I don’t hate it at all. Just the other day I purchased my first pair of real running shoes and I could not be more ecstatic.  Continue reading

“You’re short on ears and long on mouth.”
-John Wayne

We all know how possible it is to be completely surrounded by people and still feel alone.
Physical proximity counts for a lot less if that presence isn’t felt through knowing and being known. At the same time, our brains are receiving and processing information lightning fast. Out attentions dart from a person to our phone to the car driving by to the sound we heard behind us. Listening takes focus. And because of that, listening can be one of the best and easiest ways to convey that you care. Continue reading

Living with Intent: 6 Steps to Living a Healthier, More Joyful & Purposeful Life


About two years ago, I approached my father (Deepak Chopra) with a confession. I told him I was generally exhausted, over caffeinated and my sugar addiction was out of control.  I realized I was overscheduled trying to balance my role as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur with, my start-up social media company.

My father looked shell shocked, and it took a few moments for him to transition from concerned father to Deepak Chopra, the person that thousands go to for health advice. Continue reading

I found myself sitting at a business lunch highly frustrated without knowing how I got that way. Had someone said something to make me mad? Was I mad at someone? Was I mad about the service? Or maybe something that had happened en route to lunch?
It sounds like a lot of questions about a simple feeling but recently I’ve started taking a moment to inventory a situation when I’m frustrated. Continue reading
