A week by week breakdown of the MYL curriculum

In less than two weeks, we’ll be starting the Master Your Life 8 Week Program for the 3rd year in a row. I can’t believe we’re just days away!

I want to take some time to be completely transparent with you about what you can expect from the program, week to week. Sometimes we need to really understand the details in order to feel into whether or not something is right for us. 

So today, I’m spelling out exactly what you can expect from MYL.

Just to go over the basics first, here’s a recap on HOW the information is delivered: 

— The program is 8 weeks long beginning Sunday, October 15th and ending December 10th
— Each week, we study a new area of Self-Care (outlined below)
— Every Friday, you will get access to a 45-minute audio lesson (with me speaking) and a gorgeous exploration workbook. They will cover the topic for that following week.
— You’ll be able to download and go through the audio + workbook in your own time, whatever works for you.
 Tuesday evenings + Friday mornings, we all meet on a group conference call. This is your time to ask questions and be personally coached by me. Most people only dial into one of the weekly calls, two are provided just for your convenience to accommodate schedules (feel free to dial into both for extra support).
— Each week, the structure repeats. Except for week 5. Week 5 is “Integration Week”, a super important week for you to relax and let the material you’ve learned settle in. It’s also a great time to play catch up on anything you missed! This year, we also have our Alumni leading breakout calls in small groups to give you even more support from people who have been in your shoes. 

And now, here’s a breakdown of what you can expect to learn in each week. 

I wanted to really paint a picture for you! Here goes… 

WEEK ONE: Handle your emotions with grace

Life has constant ups and downs, and my goal is to leave you in a place where you have full confidence that you can get through anything. The bad days, the breakups, the bad body image days, the surprises, the vulnerable conversations. I want you to know, deep in your bones, that you can handle it. During this week, we’ll cover why so many of us are disconnected and scared of our feelings, and you’ll get clear on which feelings are hardest for you to handle. I’ll also share openly about which feelings I find hardest to handle, too. I then go into giving you TEN strategies for gracefully handling your feelings in really healthy ways. Basically, I am helping you build a “toolbox” to draw from any time a hard feeling hits. You’ll learn how to handle these feelings with beautiful compassion, softness, and strength.

WEEK TWO: Heal your mind

Your mind is incredibly, incredibly powerful. A shift in your thoughts and mindset can create an entirely new way you live your life. Yes, it’s that powerful. In this week, I’ll be breaking down your inner critic and showing you how to take a step back and get to know these “voices in your head”. You’ll reallllly get to know your inner critic – but not in a “I hate my inner critic!” kind of way, more of in a loving way. It’s so important to understand what your inner critic is doing and why. Then, we’ll focus a lot on how to strengthen the connection with your intuition, or higher self. This is where things get fun! I offer you 5 powerful ways to connect, listen to and turn up the volume on your intuition so you can live with way more power, confidence, and ease.

WEEK THREE: Love and adore your physical body

This is one of the most beautiful, deep, heartfelt weeks of the program. As women, we all struggle with our bodies at some point. How can we not, especially in the society we live in? I am so fiercely committed to allowing MY own body to ebb and flow while maintaining respect, connection and love for her, AND helping you do the same. This week we are going deep. Your body is CRAVING love and acceptance from you, and I’m showing you how to create this. We are breaking down body stories and beliefs that are keeping you insecure and small, I’m giving you a way to make peace with any “extra weight” you’re carrying around (this one brought several people last year to tears… in the best way possible), and giving you over 20 experiential ways to slowly start building that passionate, strong connection between you and your body. We’re also going over “exercise” this week – and especially how to rethink it so it’s joyful and fun. 

WEEK FOUR: Create a free, normal and fun relationship with food

This week, I break down exactly why dieting doesn’t work. You know I really don’t believe in dieting, so I’m painting the picture of exactly why… and why it’s NOT your fault that you find yourself deep in a pint of ice cream every time you try to diet. So, if not dieting, then what? The rest of this week’s lesson is all focused on how to create an EASY, free relationship with food. This is based on principles of intuitive eating, with my own tweaks and strategies layered on top of it. I give you some really fun exercises to start exploring how YOU want to eat and what you actually LIKE, how to think about hunger and fullness, how to have fun with food and still feel good in your body at the same time, how to take “trigger foods” (like ice cream and bread) off of a pedestal, and most of all… how to keep it SIMPLE. Yes, simple. This does not have to be so complicated, I promise! (I know, you probably feel like it IS, but I will walk you through this…). We’ll also dive into cooking, recipes, batch booking, and how to physically care for your body through food. I’ve brought in Natural Foods Chef, Michelle Kabler, as a guest this week to help us out and provide bonus material all about cooking + recipes + how to plan for your week.  

WEEK FIVE: Integration week!

Take a break, chill out, play catch up, get support from me and your Alumni Leaders, and let your mind + body absorb the material.

WEEK SIX: Organize your schedule and revamp your environment

Do you LOVE most of your days? Or do you find yourself exhausted, overwhelmed, turning to food for excitement, or pulled in directions you just don’t want to be pulled in? A big part of Self-Care is how we manage our schedules and our energy. Our days add up and create our lives, but so many of us just operate on auto-pilot instead of intentionally DESIGNING our lives. This week, I’m showing you how to take your power back and design a schedule that works for YOU. We’re going to get creative. We’re going to dive deep into personal boundaries. We’re going to get real about what makes you THRIVE and how to DEFEND that. After this week, you’re going to be living your day-to-day in a way that feels more in-control, calm, spacious, FUN, and in line with your values. I also brought in guest expert, Beth Penn, who teaches us all about organization and simplifying, and strategies to clear out various corners of our lives to make room for a calm mind and what’s truly important. 

WEEK SEVEN: Care for your soul by taking an honest look at your career

You spend most of your waking hours at your job, so this is a very important area of Self-Care. We’re starting off by looking at your level of happiness at your current job. I’ll talk about how to take responsibility for making your job as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible and doing what’s in your power to make it the best possible experience. We’ll go into how to know when to stay or when to go based on what you most value, and then we’ll dive into soul-searching exercises for figuring out what’s next, if you are looking to figure out that next step. This process is very thought-provoking and useful to come back to again and again. I’m also bringing in guest expert Romy Rost, Career & Leadership Coach. She will be on our weekly coaching call to provide you with hands-on support and answering your specific questions. 

WEEK EIGHT: Improve your relationships for consistent love

As humans, we are WIRED for connection. It is something we so deeply crave. We want to be seen, to be known, to feel accepted for all of who we are. While we crave that deep connection and love, so many of us block that kind of love without even realizing it. This week, I’m explaining how relationships are mirrors into ourselves, the ways we subconsciously block love and connection with others, and then we go into how to connect deeper and create more fulfilling relationships. You’ll learn a lot about all relationships, but also specifically romantic relationships – our romantic relationships are the ones that are our greatest teachers and most profound opportunities to grow!

There you have it!

That’s the premise of the program. As you can see, all of these topics are so important to explore in order to live a life in which you feel fulfilled, happy, LIT UP, grounded, and strong.

I also want to remind you that I am fully there to support you. I clear most of my calendar in the Fall just to focus on my MYL ladies, so I’ll be right there by your side. 

I would love to have you in the program. As soon as you enroll, you get access to a short Jumpstart pre-course to whet your palette, plus the Facebook Group so you can start meeting the other women in the group.
