You are Stronger Than You Think: Emotional Strength During a Pandemic

You are Stronger Than You Think: Emotional Strength During a Pandemic

I went to Sam’s Club yesterday. It was the first time I’ve been outside of my neighborhood in two weeks because of this pandemic. I was excited to be able to get out and see something, even though it’s only 5 minutes from my house. But I was also nervous to be out with others because there were still a lot of people out and about. As I got out of my car and started walking to the entrance, I…

Feeling Stressed? Look at What You’re Talking About

I know stress levels are higher than ever right now. There are so many unknowns in the world that it’s hard to not feel worried. But I think it’s also time that we get ourselves in check.

Wow, it’s been a hot minute since Stuck in Your Rut has been active. I’ve never wanted it to really shut it down but had shifted my focus towards my content marketing clients through my business Rising River Marketing. I found I was struggling to balance all that I wanted to accomplish (can anyone relate). I had to make some choices for my own mental health. But 2020 hit and it hit hard.

What Does an Adventurous Life Really Look Like?

What Does an Adventurous Life Really Look Like?

A few days ago someone told my husband about a change that they wanted to make in their life. He knows that my husband and I have had a crazy couple of years picking up and moving out of state and that we’re getting ready to do it again. He told my husband that he just isn’t “adventurous” like we are. Last week I was also scrolling through my Facebook feed from the past few years and noticed that someone…

5 Thoughts That Are Keeping You Stuck

5 Thoughts That Are Keeping You Stuck

Back in 2010, I started to focus a lot on personal development. Some areas of my life had completely fallen apart. I didn’t know what to do, what had gone wrong, or why I was having so many problems. Then, I learned about the power of my thoughts. And, for the first time ever, I realized that I could control what I thought about. I had no idea!
