Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom or somewhere in between, you surely feel pulled in many different directions. Women today can barely catch a break between caring for their little humans, their partners, and their homes. Today, Sunit discusses how to "balance" motherhood and why achieving true balance shouldn't be the goal. She shares what to strive for instead, how to become more efficient and productive by journaling and time blocking, and other tips to help you make the most out of this precious life.
Boundaries are an important thing for us to establish in our lives to protect ourselves from harm. Physical boundaries are much more easily understood than emotional and situational ones, however. In today's episode, Sunit discusses what boundaries are, and what they are not, as well as who they are for (they are for you, not other people). She shares the 3 steps you can take to establish boundaries in your life, and talks about why others overstepping our boundaries is OUR fault. Self love is an important part of self care, and having boundaries is an important step to to self love.
So many of us are walking around wounded, never having dealt with the various things that have brought us pain in the past. Sunit addresses why we live in a culture where we don't want to address our pain, and what we can start doing to move on from that. She shares the 5 steps you can take to owning the difficult things you go through and actually make them part of your story.
Sunit shares why feeling pain is important, and also how we can change the future as mothers, by raising kids who are comfortable not being happy all the time.
Listen in as she reminds us that pain serves a purpose, and how to use it to be your strength instead of your weakness.
Why do we shy away from rising up? Why do we like to stay in our comfort zone? What is the key to dreaming big and seeing all our hopes come to life? Today Sunit talks about what it means to stay small, why we stay small, and why it's important to dream big. She also talks about what dreaming big really means and what it requires. If you have ever found yourself wishing you could make your daydreams a reality, you may first need to establish what or WHO has held you back from doing so. Once you understand that your brain prefers to be comfortable, and that those naysayers NEED you to stay small to feel good about themselves, you can then move forward with confidence that you are on the right path!
This week, Sunit dives into the differences between spirituality and religion and answers the question, can you be both spiritual and religious? She also talks about what we lose out on when we say we are only spiritual. We might be connecting in deeper with ourselves, but how are we connecting in with our like minded tribe and community? We have access to more luxuries and advancements than ever before in life, and more than ever, many people are identifying with spirituality and a need to connect deeper to themselves, so why then are we unhappier than we have ever been? Could it be that us falling away from organized religion and going to common places of worship is distancing us from what really matters most in life? Listen in and see where you fall on this topic!
In this episode, Sunit talks about what guides us as we move through life. She discusses the fact that much of how we operate is dependent on how we are programmed from day 1. Our programming comes from our parents, our surroundings, our culture, our society, our education..etc. We are taught our belief systems and we don't question anything because we don't have the capacity to question as babies. But these things eventually dictate our belief system, which becomes our values. These things eventually trickle down into limiting beliefs, which are the beliefs we have that can hold us back. She discusses some of the most commonly held beliefs today, and encourages us to think about where they come from and why we believe them. She talks about objectively questioning cultural and societal beliefs, as well as commonly held thoughts like:
Traditional Schooling and University
Our thoughts and beliefs around retirement and saving for retirement
Winning is good and better than losing (everyone is a winner)
We shouldn't hurt other people's feelings
Being happy is always the goal
Tune in and ask yourself...what do i believe about these things? And why? And what else do i believe to be true that maybe isn't? And how is it dictating how I show up in the world?

Sunit shares how she plans out her year, then drills down to the months, weeks and days. She shares how to assess how last year went so that you can do more of what worked, and fix what didn't. She encourages you to establish more boundaries, and say no to what doesn't serve you. She explains how to plan ahead and take a little extra time up front to save yourself headache and time.

In this solo episode, Sunit talks about the power of saying thank you and ending the conversation there. How often do you receive a compliment about something and find yourself brushing it off? Or being self deprecating? Or excusing it somehow? Why cant we just own what we bring to the table? Why do we feel the need to add a "but" or some type of explanation after the fact? We do this with everything, including, our appearance, what we are wearing, our children, our work, the list goes on. Owning our worth and what we bring to the table, regardless of how big or small, regardless of whether it feels superficial or not, is a key to developing that self love that many of us lack. It is also a key piece for success. Listen in and see if this resonates with you, and use this holiday season to shift your mindset around it!
