My job is not to talk about the light.

I woke up this morning and I did the first thing I do every morning…I reached for my phone. And I saw in my inbox that there was another post about light. I contemplated not reading it, but like chips or pot, I find it really hard to say no if it’s in front of me so I read the …

How to be rich when you feel poor.

1.When you wake up, after you do your “have to’s “kids to school, face washed, peed etc) before email, putting on pants or one quick facebook browse, get on the floor and move your body for 20 minutes. Set a timer. Yoga, stretching, rolling around, pretend yer a snake for all I care – just move your damn body before …

Just 15 minutes a day of being nice to myself…

Put the oxygen mask on yourself before you put it on your kids. Oprah calls it ‘radical self care.” It’s not about “treating yo’self.” It’s about survival. …and if you’re in need of some inspiration. This is what ME TIME could look like.

I’m Titrating Right Now.

Titrate: Verb: To continuously measure and adjust the balance of a physiological function.  One of the perks of having my own radio show is that I get to talk to whomever I want about whatever I want. This means most of my interviews are about emotions, drug-use and dirty jokes. I’ve always been fascinated with “going there”. You know? Going …

Burn Out Is Radical

The telltale signs of burn-out are: 1. You can’t do more than one thing at a time. If you try to do more than one thing at a time you start to freak out and get anxiety. 2. You are excited as hell to crawl into bed at night and it hurts to wake up to an alarm. 3. If …

The Work of Pleasure

This is the third year I’ve travelled to the Big Island of Hawaii to facilitate a woman’s retreat. As I write this I’m sitting in a sports bra with some sweaty shorts on, underneath a big fan. We’re on “time off” this afternoon. Some of the women have gone to the beach to swim,  one is napping in a hammock …

For the Depressed Motherfuc*ers at Christmas.

It’s Dec 20th and I just went for a walk with my family. It was sunny out and we walked for about an hour and a half straight. On the stroll I didn’t see one happy person. Every Single Fucking Person had that sad, dead Christmas look in their eyes. And it made me feel a whole lot better. First …

Yoga Mom (the video)

Hey Ma! Videos of young, lithe, childfree women doing yoga in their panties got ya down? Make you feel like eating a bag of sour-cream-and-bacon chips at 9am? Or maybe quitting for good? Here’s the prescription. This shit is for real. xo, Em  

What Happens When You Die?

Where Do You Go When You Die? And I don’t mean into the ground. I know this is an unanswerable question and I know there is probably no fulfilling answer. I also know that wars are waged over this conversation but I’d still like to hear your beliefs. Because I believe it’s not really about the truth, it’s more about …

Should I push or should I flow? The eternal question.

I’m a pusher. I’m pushy. This is my nature. It’s who I’ve been my entire life. It’s exhausting to be a pusher but it’s also exhilarating. There’s not much more satisfying then ticking off my to do list. There is such a sweet pleasure in letting my head hit the pillow and knowing that I worked today. I made something. …
