The Daily Unwind

Has your life become one big blur?

You know you weren’t put on this earth to just get through the day. Deep down, you know you’re smarter than this, that you are able to accomplish great things.

You may even know what to do to get off the low-energy treadmill your life has become, but you can’t find the resolve to make it happen. It’s like you’re thinking, “I’ll deal with liking my life later, when I’m not so exhausted.”

Stop. This is not you.

What if now is the time to lift your head up and see a bigger view? The vision is there. You just need some support and some structure to bring it into focus.

 

I’ve been there. Once upon a time, I was a smartypants book editor and high-flying Internet producer who made a fearless leap into freelance journalism, covering wellness and yoga (which I practiced and taught). I even authored a book on handling stressful situations with ease.

Then I had 2 kids in 2 years. Thanks in large part to the Great Recession, my career evaporated before my very eyes. I was adrift in my own small, claustrophobic world. The biggest vision I could muster for myself was what to cook for dinner.

It took over a year of feeling overwhelmed by the tiniest details before I knew I had to make a change.

 

Here’s what worked for me: Taking small snippets of time to do something that got my mind and body back on speaking terms – whether it was something formal, like a yoga pose, or something mundane, like sweeping with total absorption. I also got support and structure from a wide network of people: my babysitter, my friends, my yoga teachers, and eventually, a coach.

If you’ve been struggling to get more engaged in your own wellbeing, don’t feel bad. You don’t need to do it alone. In fact, you can’t. Because when your day feels like you’re being dragged behind a horse, you need help to get back in the saddle.

The Daily Unwind can help. I designed this program to be exactly what I wished I’d had when I was crawling out of my rock bottom. I keep things simple and straight-forward. I base everything on my own real-world experience. And although I have a calming presence, I always keep it light and fun.

 

Here’s what people are saying about the program:

“The Daily Unwind is liking taking a deep breath in your inbox (if that’s even possible).” – Judi Ketteler

“Keep the videos coming! I am addicted to the supported heart opener – I may have to do it everyday from now on.” – LeeAnn Spear

 

Imagine doing one thing each day – in 5 minutes or less – that helps you:

  • Think more clearly
  • Feel flexible, strong, and at home in your body
  • Stop automatically screaming at your kids
  • Sleep better at night, because your body won’t be aching and your thoughts won’t be swirling
  • Gain the ability to reflect before your react to the people in your life, improving your relationships and lowering your stress levels
  • Feel more content and happy with your messy, marvelous life
  • Hear your intuition, so you can make decisions with ease and begin to follow the whispers of your heart instead of the demands of the clock, the kids, the boss, the DVR (Celebrity Wife Swap, anyone?)

 

If you’re ready to re-claim your own inner sense of serenity, don’t wait anymore.

 

 

 

But wait! I hardly have time to brush my teeth! How am I going to add one more thing to my to-do list?

All of the practices included in the Daily Unwind take 5 minutes or less. Some will take mere seconds. In exchange for those 5 minutes, you get 24 hours of greater clarity and calm. That’s a pretty gosh darn good deal.

I also keep it as simple as possible for you: Each day, I’ll send you an email with a quick video to give you the visual and a link to an audio file that contains simple and clear instructions for one tiny thing you can do in the next 24 hours that will have a big impact on how you feel in your mind, body, and soul. You’ll also receive an invite to join a private Facebook group where you can ask me questions and get support from your fellow Daily Unwinders.

 

And I can really make a big difference in only a few minutes a day?

If you’re consistent with your efforts, oh heck yes you can. Over the course of 30 days, you’ll build your self-care muscles and learn how to:

  • Recognize when your stress starts to spike so you can do something about it before you freak out
  • Let unimportant things slide (at least temporarily) and create some time to do something nice for yourself
  • Access that wise inner voice that usually gets drowned out in the chaos of daily life
  • Trust that when you regularly take time for even a simple mind-body practice, everything flows more easily — you’re more effective, and your efforts take less of a toll on your health and sanity.

OK, sounds good. How much we talking?

Your total investment is $97, about the monthly cost of a daily latte habit. (Trust me, knowing that you’ve got your own back when it comes to reducing stress and getting in touch with what really matters to you is better than latte.)
