How to change your life with the law of attraction. Manifest your biggest dreams and turn them into a reality in three simple steps! Plus, I give examples about how the law of attraction has worked in my life, before I even knew what it was!

  I did it, you guys! I made my first Youtube video for this blog!! In the last few months of exploring and learning about personal development, manifesting and the Law of Attraction are topics that have come up frequently. A friend of mine asked me if I had heard about manifesting before, but I was officially introduced to the idea in my favorite book, You Are A Badass. It’s all about the power of your mindset, and how if you raise your frequencies to a high and positive level, the Universe will respond with exactly what you need. Don’t believe me? I break thisRead More →

What's the difference between self-care and laziness? There's a fine line between taking a mental health break, and simply being lazy. I break down the differences between the two so you can help recognize your patterns and see if there's anything you need to change in your self-care routine!

The other day I received an Instagram message from a follower who was still learning about self-care and what works best for her. She mentioned that she sometimes finds herself using “self-care” as an excuse, instead of an act of self-love. I could definitely relate to her experience. I’m not perfect. Even though I’ve had a longer experience practicing self-care, I unfortunately still occasionally find myself using self-care as an excuse to be lazy. For example, sometimes I find myself binge-watching a new show instead of working on my blog. Even though I know I had the energy and time to work on my priorities,Read More →

9 ways to be a badass and live your best life - what I learned after reading "You Are a Badass" by Jen Sincero. This book is a must read for anyone and everyone!

As I started diving into the personal development world, I kept seeing this bright yellow book everywhere I looked. It had quite a memorable title: You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. I’d find it on Instagram, Pinterest, in Target, Barnes and Noble…literally everywhere! One day I was feeling rather down and defeated about where I was in life. I was still in my full-time corporate job but knew I needed to start moving forward towards something else. Nothing was panning out – none of the jobs in my area sounded right, andRead More →

What I would have told myself as a recent college grad by guest author, Kristen. - Sara Katherine

Guest Post by Kristen from Sophisticated Gal It feels like not long ago I was going to one of my Advertising courses in college, spending countless hours on our final project that determined my grade in the class and if I would graduate. Fast forward three years and here I am settling into my career, looking back on the lessons I’ve learned since starting my “big girl” job in the real world. Since I started my career, I have learned so much about what it means to have a job in the “real world”. When you’re in college, they don’t really teach you what itRead More →

Why surrounding yourself with positive people can change your life - Sara Katherine

“Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, nourishing, and uplifting people – people who believe in you, encourage you to go after your dreams, and applaud your victories.” – Jack Canfield Once you graduate college, you have a higher flexibility to pick your friends as an adult. Instead of going to class every day and seeing the same people, you have the opportunity to seek out certain types of friends or cut off those who you don’t want in your life. While it’s sometimes challenging to find friends as an adult, this is a fantastic chance to surround yourself with positive and uplifting people.Read More →

My top 5 most recommended guided meditations for both beginners and veterans to help improve mental health, mindfulness, and contribute to your overall self-care - Sara Katherine

Meditation is growing in popularity as the self-care and mental health awareness movement grows among society, and for good reasons!

Meditating regularly can benefit your life in numerous ways. For example, not only can it reduce stress, but it can help increase your attention span, strengthen your immunity levels, improve your metabolism, sleep better, and so much more!  I definitely noticed an immediate improvement in my overall life when IRead More →

10 easy ways to start adding single tasking to your life, and how it can help improve your overall productivity and mindfulness

I don’t know about you, but I have terrible habit of multi-tasking. You’re probably thinking, “Multi-tasking is a bad thing? You’re getting more done at once, right?” Unless you’re fantastic about following through with EVERYTHING you’re doing while multi-tasking, odds are it’s taking you longer to actually finish any projects or tasks you start. Your focus and energy is spread too thin when you’re working on simultaneous activities. Imagine the overall amount of progress you make when you’re focusing on three or four tasks at a time. You aren’t actually moving forward on those projects compared to focusing on one at a time. For example,Read More →

Self-Care needs to be a top priority in your life. Here's why! (Plus a FREE simple guide to daily self-care!)

A little over a year ago, self-care was not on my radar. I was tackling life head-first, exploring full-time career options, enjoying a newer relationship, and experiencing post-college life. It was an interesting phase for me; I had just finished an internship and didn’t have any specific goals for my next step. Overall I was enjoying the freedom, but my inner overachiever was screaming for more. Throughout the summer, I spent countless hours applying for jobs, prepping for interviews, investing time in friendships and my relationship, and working nearly full-time hours every week at my current job. Also, can’t forget the regular day-to-day errands andRead More →

Adulting is hard. Anxiety makes it harder. It almost feels like no matter how many obstacles you conquer, another mountain immediately arrives. Your to-do list feels endless. However, you know you can’t back down if you want to accomplish your goals. Completing this never-ending list of adult tasks isn’t easy.  When I was first experiencing adulting anxiety in full swing after college, the strategy I was using to completing my goals wasn’t working. I needed to find a solution to conquering the anxiety and stress. I developed a few habits that were extremely effective. Of course, these tactics don’t completely alleviate stress and anxiety forever, but they certainly help keep my emotionsRead More →
