I don’t want COVID to dictate my life for the rest of 2020. Do you? Here’s the thing: it’s not too late to make this year better.
What needs to happen? BEHAVIORAL MASTERY: Learning to take control of what you DO everyday.
It's the key to becoming BETTER than before this pandemic.
The truth is there are things that are out of your control and we can’t change that.
BUT... The things that are in your control (what you think, how you feel, and what you do) that can change and will change with the Better Than Before Program.
How do I know?
Since the pandemic started, over 1,000 people have gone through the program. [Scroll down to hear their stories.]
Also, I’ve been teaching wellbeing and resilience for 15+ years. As a Master Certified Coach, and Well-being Expert, I love helping people learn the skills and practices they need to make their lives better.
I've helped our Better Than Before Members (affectionately known as BTBers) get through the darkest days of quarantine, uncertainty, and loss using positive psychology research and DAILY support. I want to show you how to do it too and build your...
and social health.
The kind of change that forms a strong foundation for the rest of your life.
What’s the secret formula? Daily LIVE support + play + mindfulness + science-based tools + community support.
✅30 days. ✅30 practices. ✅A community of like-minded, like-hearted people who have your back every step of the way as you take small steps that make MASSIVE changes in your physical, mental, emotional, and social health!
Are you ready to commit to 30 days of practice with me?
I hope so! Because I am SO here for helping you create a complete transformation of your body, mind, and spirit that lasts you the rest of your life.
Starts Monday September 21 through October 21st - JOIN AT ANY TIME

"But how do you know I can make a meaningful change in 30 days?"
I'm not a psychic ... but I am a positive psychology and well-being expert. AND, I have already helped over a thousand people do just that during the peak of the pandemic.
I specialize in the science of how the mind and body tick. I've spent close to 15 years teaching well-being and resilience skills, and training practitioners all over the world to do the same. I know how to help you hack your mind and your body to get you through to the other side of this.
As a Master Certified Coach, I know how to help you craft out a vision of a future version of you that will walk out of your no-longer-quarantined-home better than before this started. A physically stronger you, with a healthier immune system, increased control over your nervous system, awareness of your breath, stronger lungs, a greater sense of gratitude, stronger ties to the people that matter most .... and that’s just a shortlist of the options!
And, beyond helping you imagine it, I know how to help you take the actions to make that happen.
One of the first things we do is recognize that thoughts impact how you feel and what you do. Counting down helps you tell your brain, "We can get through this," and "Hang in there, we only have 10 days left." It keeps you focused on the task at hand, rather than worrying about what might be.
Fear and anxiety are emotions that biologically make us want to retreat, run away and hide. This is a natural response when faced with a difficult circumstance, it is not the only option. You can learn to control your fear response and focus on problem-solving and taking action.
"OK. How will this work?"
I want to offer you, what my colleague used to call, "A Daily Dose of Vitamin eM." 🙂
I will host a 1-hour gathering EVERY WEEKDAY on Zoom for 30 days starting Monday, September 21st at 11am ET.
If you're like most people that I know who are quarantined, you've already lost track of what day of the week it is. You've lost your daily routine, your commute, and your live community. You're already thinking that you're going to lose your mind. These daily sessions will give you centering, structure, hope, positivity, and resilience skills.
And, while I may be the vitamin, I'm not the secret sauce. The secret sauce is the people that are drawn to a community like this and are up for a challenge like that. These are people that don't want to be a victim of their circumstance, and, they want to be of support to others.
"What happens on the Zoom calls?"
I will guide you through a series of activities to focus you for the day. Each meeting will have a combination of reflective writing, conversations with people in breakout groups, visualization, mindfulness, movement, and play! (That’s right, remember play? It’s an integral part of making it through times like these!)
Every day, I will teach you one self-care strategy to help you stay physically, mentally, or emotionally fit. We'll cover everything from eye-stretching exercises to counter the negative impact of eye strain... (needing eye-glasses post-COVID-19 is not a #BetterThanBefore!)... to breathing exercises for strengthening your lung capacity in case, God forbid, you get sick. We’ll also focus on simple tricks for increased productivity and vitality throughout your day. (Say goodbye to the quarantine blahs!)
All the meetings are recorded, if you can't make it live to the calls, you can still participate in the value of the community. We'll have discussions, celebrations, and check-ins on Facebook.
Every day, you'll get to meet a different fascinating, and caring human on the planet through the breakout group activities.
Every day, you'll commit to one personal action that you will take towards a Better Than Before you. And, every day, we will do one small act as a community.
But wait, there's more!
When you sign up, we'll first take your baseline: A quick, 5-min measurement of your overall wellbeing. Then, we’ll focus on creating habits for a better you.
When the program kicks off, everyone will support each other in habit change. We’ll pick one behavior that you will commit to improving and doing 30 of in 30 days. (Mine will be push-ups.) Together, we'll kick off Day One with one of the behavior (in my case... one push-up). On Day Two, we'll do two. And we’ll work our way up until, by day 30, you're doing 30 or whatever the behavior is.
We're going to help you "Want what you WANT TO WANT!"
If you're not already here... you'll get there soon... Your mind is going to fill with things that you "want to want" but you "don't actually want."
You'll want to want to exercise ... but you won't want to exercise. You'll want to want to get up and make a healthy meal for yourself ... but since it’s just you around, you instead want to eat some of the junk food you have stored that's easier to access. All of this is normal, human, hibernating behavior. The only problem is, you're not a bear.
It's not easy. But it's not impossible—especially if you remember that we're all in this together!
If there is one thing that people are learning the most through this crisis, it's the basic tenant of positive psychology which is, "Other people matter!" The key to coming out of the crisis #BetterThanBefore is not isolating while you socially distance and find innovative ways to learn, grow and prosper.
"If you feel like you're going through hell, just keep going!"
Ready to build a strong and powerful foundation that’s going to last you the rest of your life, looooong after this crisis is over?
