“This is the real secret of life—to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize that it is play.” -Alan Watts
You cannot fail at blazing your OWN trail & following your bliss. The deeper you go in your craft, the more fear fades & love is simply all there is.
Tune in to learn why it’s important as a new online coach to literally practice speaking what you desire, not just in your perfectly curated writing for social media… but also, and especially, the messaging happening between your ears 😉
In a culture hyper-focused on productivity, performance, and pressure to excel, play can be seen as a waste of time. Why would you waste your precious time and energy goofing off when you could be striving towards your goals?
As children, play is something that comes natural to you. You aren’t taught to do it, it’s just something you do! As you come of age, you’re sent to school, work, maybe to college, and are taught to be a productive and responsible member of society. Play becomes a thing of the past.
Overtime, agitation and stress begin to build up. You feel spread thin, like you can’t keep up with your never ending to-do list, leaving you rushed, bitter, and with no time to do what you actually love!
Tune into this episode to remember what it means to play, something you were born to do!
In a society that expects you to always be on, doing, and productive, rest can be seen as a radical, revolutionary act. If you’re someone who often lets rest and relaxation fall to the back-burner of your to-do list, this episode has been made for you! Yoga Nidra, also known as NSDR or non-sleep deep rest is a self-care practice which originated in India and has been developed for over thousands of years. It’s been gaining traction and coming closer to the spotlight in the West over the last couple years and it is my goal with this episode to continue bringing light to the gift that is Yoga Nidra.
Courtney Bishop takes you through a guided meditation to help you feel into the depths of life, be fulfilled by it, and therefore able to give from overflow within your craft. You’ll walk away from this episode with a greater sense of clarity, connection, and ease as you approach the rest of your day, week, and even year.
Courtney helps you understand what’s blocking you from being able to hone your concentration so you can more precisely create the coaching biz, athletic accomplishments and lifestyle of your dreams with ease & joy!
Courtney walks you through a guided meditation to tap into the most loving moments of your life, feel your heart opening, and celebrate all you’ve been through and all you are becoming.
Courtney illuminates a perspective on how to approach eating and your relationship with food that is not widely discussed in strength and conditioning circles. Many athletes see nutrition as a vehicle to achieving a better outcome in their sport, whether that’s physique and/or performance related. And while common nutrition approaches (i.e. tracking calories and/or macronutrients, keto, intermittent fasting, plant-based, nutrient timing) are effective at producing desired outcomes like gaining muscle mass and losing body fat, there is a holistic perspective that is largely missed en route to said outcomes. Tune in to learn something new for yourself, and to use with clients to aid them in their process AND goals.
Courtney shares 21 thoughtfully crafted affirmations for you to try on to attract more beauty, ease, and joy so you can live a deep and aligned lifestyle as a New Coach and/or driven athlete.
