Finding Time for Self-Care in Our Busy Lives

DSCN6767 (2)

What do you struggle with in maintaining your self-confidence? What obstacles get in the way, preventing you from achieving your personal best?

These were the questions ending my last blog post, “Practice the Skill of Self-Confidence.” Many readers emailed me saying that Dr. Joseph’s insights were very powerful and that practising self-confidence on a daily basis was one of their goals.  Yet, the readers also expressed a common obstacle: their busy schedules made it challenging for them to incorporate the repeated practice of self-confidence into their personal routines. Can you relate to this?

Therefore, to continue the conversation, I reached out to Dr. Nina Savelle-Rocklin to share her Record Worthy Practice with us.  She is a mom, wife, and “busy” professional. Despite her packed schedule, she has been a mentor to me, giving me lots of advice through sharing her personal insight. Dr. Nina (as she is known) is a psychoanalyst, an author, an award-winning blogger, and the creator of the ‘Win the Diet War’ program. In the past, Dr. Nina has been on the blog sharing her insights; we’ve also been following each other on Twitter since we have similar professional interests. I emailed her to ask how she finds time to incorporate self-care into her busy schedule.  (more…)

Blog Your Passion

Are you looking for inspiration this summer to turn your dreams into reality?


I thought this reader’s inquiry would resonate with you. I know from experience that if one person asks a question, there are usually others out there who could benefit from the advice. So with permission, I’m sharing her email.

Hi Arianna, I was googling life coaching type blogs, and I’ve found yours, and I love your style of writing. I was originally searching for inspiration, as I’m a psychology graduate who is hoping to do something a bit more creative than the usual office job. May I ask, do you have any advice for establishing yourself as a life blogger so to speak? Any advice you could give me would be so appreciated.”

Establishing Yourself as a Life Blogger is about speaking from the heart, sharing your passion with others, and building community.

When people are looking for inspiration, instead of only going outward to others for answers, dig deep and look within. Write your posts as if you are speaking from your heart. Remember, people are coming to your blog to connect with you and hear your thoughts. Blogging is a conversation where you start talking and people respond.
