Trusting Your Intuition and Spreading Holiday Cheer


I hope you’re having a wonderful, albeit out-of-the-ordinary holiday season so far. Before we hop into today’s note, I want to share with you this week’s episode of the Everyday Happy Show podcast, which is all about listening to, trusting, and building your intuition.

Our intuition is like a secret weapon — it can spare us a ton of pain, sorrow, and sometimes regret. It can even save our lives by telling us to make an appointment with the doctor or get a second opinion.

That’s why I’m so excited for this week’s episode where I’m talking with Kim Chestney, intuition expert and author of Radical Intuition.

I hope our conversation inspires you to listen to and trust your intuition more than ever before.

Listen and enjoy here! 

Now onto today’s note … 

This holiday season may feel different without your usual ugly sweater parties and caroling door to door, but there are lots of things you still can do that will bring you (and others!) joy.

 Here are some easy ways to spread cheer this year and bring good tidings to the special people in your life.

Bake a big batch of cookies and decorate them like you did when you were a kid. Then box them up and place them on your friends’ and neighbors’ doorsteps.

Schedule a virtual Christmas caroling Zoom event. Invite your aunt, neighbors, co-workers — whomever — and create a playlist so you can belt out your favorite holiday tunes. At the very least, laughs will probably be had. 🙂 

Whip up festive cocktails. Then, meet a friend in her driveway or backyard for a socially distanced holiday happy hour.

Buy gifts for children in need. Check out Toys for Tots or the Make-A-Wish Foundation for ways to donate.

Write hand-written holiday notes. Take some time this year to send personalized letters to family and friends — they’ll love hearing from you and feel extra special. 

Passing along good cheer this time of year will make your friends, family and loved ones feel more merry and bright — and you’ll get some warm and fuzzy feelings too.  

 Here’s to making spirits bright!

What’s one thing you could do that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a big leap in your life?

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.

Here’s how:
