One Tweak A Week to Reach Your Dreams show art One Tweak A Week to Reach Your Dreams

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Today is a simple mantra: “one tweak each week”   Last week, I started working out again (after not really moving my body much for GULP, 4 YEARS!). I had 2 babies and a pandemic and a move/remodel. But my baby is almost 3 years old, and there’s no excuses, plus I feel like crap!   So I signed up for Orange Theory Fitness and made a commitment to myself to work out for 5 days. Last week was my first week, but I ate like crap - we’re talking 5 indulgent meals a day at about 3000 calories. So, although I was working out like an athlete, I was eating like a lumberjack!   I...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Today’s episode is about completion.    HUH? What does this have to do with self-love or mindfulness?    When we don’t complete our tasks, it chips at our self worth. If we have a running list of all the things we need to do, this ever growing list can feel overwhelming, anxiety inducing and stressful.   Completion of our tasks builds self worth, confidence and relieves stress.   Journal:  What projects or tasks have I left unfinished? (this could be as simple as finishing reading a book, or sending out an email to a larger project or dream) What...

I just finished my book! Well, my 2nd draft of this book (that I started 11 years ago!?, and just recently picked it back up). Life is always speaking to us…are we listening? In today’s intention and reflection, I’ll guide you to look back at your challenges and see what Life was trying to teach you. What are you experiencing NOW that you can learn from? I finished my book with my own reflection of my challenges:  my divorce taught me to learn to love myself so I could find love again burnout and the uncertainty of a major career change taught me to really know myself and find my...

LUXURY + ABUNDANCE show art LUXURY + ABUNDANCE

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

This week’s podcast is about giving yourself permission to experience more abundance and luxury AND to do something that feels luxurious each day.  Jake and I finally celebrated my birthday night out in a luxurious hotel nearby. We went to dinner and sat by the hotel fire and connected. It was a Monday and we arrived to the hotel at 5pm and left at 9:30am for work, but that one night felt very luxurious. Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a night away from the kids in 4 years or maybe it’s because I’m a mom of a 2 and 5 year old, and “luxury” these days is removing my toe...

Tune into your Truth (meditation) show art Tune into your Truth (meditation)

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Last week I had the opportunity to be a guest speaker at a weekend long writers retreat, and you know what I learned?   We are not alone in our fears and we have the same universal desires to feel seen, connected, signifiant.    What’s the ONE thing that gets in the way?   Our Itty-Bitty-shitty-Committee!   I’m writing about it in my book. I speak and teach alot about quieting it? WHY?   Because if we listen to it, it will sabotage our dreams, demolish our self worth and just keep us stuck in scarcity and fear.   In this week’s MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST...

The ONLY question you need to ask yourself show art The ONLY question you need to ask yourself

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Setting a new year’s goal, resolution or an intention can get complicated. Our mind wants to figure it all out, work backwards to make our goal happen.   In today’s meditation, you just need to ask your heart ONE question to gain crystal clear, potent clarity.   💫 What do I want? 💫   Resist the need to ask Why, When or How questions right now. These tend to be answered from our mind to try to figure out a solution or plan.   Just ask: What do I want most? And How do I want to feel?   Let yourself get quiet and listen to the whisper of your heart.  ...

Notice the Sparkle show art Notice the Sparkle

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

A few weeks ago, we took a drive up to Mount Rainier with the kids and on our way up, Hunter, my 5-year old exclaimed, “WOW look at the snow sparkling!” The bright white walls of snow piled on the side of the highway indeed were glistening in the sunshine like tiny crystals sparkling. I wouldn’t have noticed it, but children are so present they notice every detail of Life. What if we could sprinkle a little bit of that childlike wonder and presence throughout our day? So often we miss the little moments of sparkle because we’re lost in our mind. When we recycle past stories, rehash...

Hi there!

I hope you had a wonderful summer and are feeling rested and renewed. I know I am! 

It’s so good to be back with you! This season, I’m sharing excerpts from my book: How to quiet the Itty-Bitty-Shitty-Committee coming out in 2024. This is vulnerable for me to share, but I truly hope each week’s intention, lesson or meditation helps you on your journey to know and love yourself.

**  If this is helpful and speak to your heart, please do me a favor and let me know – a quick DM on instagram, email me on audreysuttonmills.com  and you can help me so much by rating, review and share this podcast.

--------

Today’s podcast is about quieting our inner critic, that negative voice that pulls us down an emotional elevator into believing in scarcity that we’re not good enough and we don’t have enough. 

You’re in alignment with your Itty-Bitty-Shitty-Committee whenever you feel inferior or superior to someone or something.

Today we’ll explore 3 ways to quiet the inner critic:

1.     Notice when you start to buy into it’s limiting beliefs and negative dialogue. When you’re in consciousness, you’re in choice and can choose a new way of talking to yourself.

2.      Question the IBSC. Ask– is this really true about me? Or is this a learned behavior or a conditioned pattern? 

3.     Create a negative mantra to halt spiraling into limiting beliefs and patterns.

This week’s invitation is to be mindful of how you talk to yourself, and use the mindfulness tools to notice your inner dialogue, question it and use the negative mantra to choose a new belief to serve you.

Each time you recognize a familiar destructive pattern and choose instead to be kinder towards yourself, you rewire any limiting beliefs and shift your patterns.

I hope this has been helpful and I can’t wait to hear how these doable tools are helping you know and love yourself.

Remember, friend ,you are enough and you matter!
