Confidence for the Win!

Win your confidence

Too often we focus on our mistakes or what could be done better. This is one of the reasons for low self-trust and confidence (especially amongst women). What we should be doing instead is seeing and celebrating the many many things we do well every single day! Recognizing successes from different sources is a powerful tool I’ve used for over a decade both with myself and my clients to increase confidence and foster the habit of positivity towards themselves and others.

The Journey to Sustainable Eating

Our family recycles plastic, paper, bottles, and food waste. We don’t own a car.
