How You Can Find Gratitude in Discomfort

How You Can Find Gratitude in Discomfort

Let’s be frank: They say that 50% of the life we live in this world doesn’t fall on the positive side of the spectrum. That means for every fun evening at a restaurant with friends, there’s a TV dinner alone at home. For every three days vacation, there’s three spent with a cold or the flu. For every positive experience or action in our life, there is an equal and opposite negative one. Now, that can simply be an hour spent bored on your phone or a meal burned on the stove — it doesn’t have to be something terrible. But it isn’t something positive.

Finding Strength in Being Soft

Finding Strength in Being Soft

At some point in my life, I learned the lesson that vulnerability was weakness.

Whether that was admitting failure, showing my emotions, needing to depend on another person…it all screamed weak to me.

Why You Need to Fill Your Bucket List with Abundance

Why You Need to Fill Your Bucket List with Abundance

Who has a list of things they want in life? Probably all of us, whether it’s a physical list or one we know in our head. We all want that one car, the home of our dreams, vacations across the globe, a rockin’ body, and a million dollars. We want more: more money, more time, more things, more days off, more, more, more.

But how often do we talk about the things that we want that we already have?

Why You Should Give Your Subconscious the Middle Finger

Why You Should Give Your Subconscious the Middle Finger

I’m going to start by making a very simple, but clear distinction: You are not the voice inside your head. You are not your subconscious. And you have the choice whether or not to listen to it. 

How I Incorporate Self Care into My Life

How I Incorporate Self Care into My Life

This is not a list of self care tips for taking care of you (although if it inspires you, bonus!). This is a list of how I have shifted, grown, overcome, and inspired myself to take care of me. This is a list of the best self care tips for Katrina Widener, life coach. And Katrina Widener, person. It’s one of the top questions I get: “How do you incorporate self care into your own routine when your job is to take care of others?”

How to Build a Life You Don't Need to Escape From

How to Build a Life You Don't Need to Escape From

And I want to be clear: While self care plays into balance, that isn’t the entire story. When I talk about balance, I mean building a life that you enjoy, that you don’t need to escape from. Where your day-to-day is aligned with who you are more than who you aren’t. Where enjoying a stiff drink after work or winding down with a hot bath aren’t the way you hide from the rest of your day. But how do you do it?

What is Imposter Syndrome?

What is Imposter Syndrome?

When I first started talking about imposter syndrome in podcasts, on social media, or on the blog, I got a lot of people with the same response.

“Wait, what is imposter syndrome?!”


I had no idea that it wasn’t a topic widely known. I assumed that the people I was coming into contact with knew what I was talking about. So rather than assume others know what it is, I decided to answer the question myself.

Creating Quiet Before Bedtime

Creating Quiet Before Bedtime

Finding time to be mindful in our day-to-day lives is already important, but we often forget that it's even more essential to do it right before closing our eyes for the night. You hear experts talk about living in the moment, practicing meditation when you wake up, and enjoying an hour of yoga each day. But no one focuses on the fact that we should be getting at least an hour of peace before bed -- to get in the right headspace for a good night's sleep, to prepare ourselves for the next day, and to reflect on what happened in the hours previously.
