TLS #165: Flowing with families/full-time jobs, homesickness, & LWIO

2016-09-06 Tall

Today’s Lively Show is covering a wide array of flow related questions many listeners have shared on Instagram this September.

We’ll be diving into flow in regards to families, full-time jobs, fighting through difficulties, and super long commutes. I’ll be sharing how I think flow can be applied to each of these circumstances and more.

Plus, I’m also sharing what I’d take with me on a deserted island, how I’ve meshed with European locals on my travels, and what I do to eat healthy while traveling.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking for a fun mix of questions and answers, or anyone who wants to hear more about how flow can apply to stable life circumstances.  

PS – I wanted you to be the first to know that I will be hosting a special intention setting workshop this Thursday (9/8) – Be sure to save yourself a spot by clicking here
