Five Ways to be More of a Warrior and Less of a Worrier

Do you ever find yourself falling into negative thought patterns and worrying about the future? I hear a lot of people talking about this concept of 'monkey mind' where we loose control of our thoughts and our mind seems to go off on it's own little journey into a dark cave and cause us an unnecessary amount of anxiety and stress.

How to Stop Comparing Yourself

"Comparison is the thief of joy.” - I think this quote from Theodore Roosevelt is pretty fitting for this post because I wanted to share a little story and some advice around self-comparison. ⁣⁣ When I was in high school, I would always worry about not being the best and fearing I'd disappear into someone else’s shadow.
