How To Stay Social – #coffeetalkmonday

Happy #coffeetalkmonday! Coffee talk Monday is the typical Monday morning when you’re still wishing it was the weekend and hoping that chugging coffee will help ease the pain of weekday reality.

Today’s topic is all about staying social when all you want to do is stay home and in your comfort zone. This topic is important for winter especially because when it gets dark at 5pm, we now have an automatic excuse to stay home because like isn’t it almost bed time? Ok, maybe I’m the only one who uses that excuse.

Staying SOCIAL does not necessarily mean being with PEOPLE. That’s the first thing you have to realize.

We naturally get into patterns without even realizing it and breaking the patterns can be difficult. Everyone knows the pattern of not going to the gym leads to paying for a Planet Fitness membership for 2 years for no reason at all.

As introverts, it is easy for us to get in the pattern of staying home and in our comfort zone. Here are some tips and tricks to break that habit.

1. Plan 1 thing to do a night

Have SOMETHING to do to keep you busy and hold yourself accountable. This could be going grocery shopping, going for a walk, window shopping, going to the library and going to the gym are just a few ideas.

2. Start a TV series with a friend

Every week alternate places to watch the series. One week have your friend over and the next week go to her/his house. This will get you into a pattern of holding yourself accountable for that particular night while not always watching Netflix alone. Eventually start to include other people in your Netflix night. When you add one person to the mix at a time, you’ll be more comfortable building up to a large group of people while still being comfy, curled up on the couch. You don’t have to go out to have fun…we all know that! Make the most of your Netflix night and bring a dish to your friends house. It will give you something to do and each week it will be fun to try new foods even from the comfort of your own home.

3. Go somewhere new

Always go to the same coffee shop? Always get lunch at the same place? Go somewhere NEW. This ties back to the “routines” I was talking about earlier. Going somewhere new is not only exciting but you could potentially meet someone new there. Gain a friend at a coffee shop or take in different sights at a local lunch spot. Getting yourself out there is the first step so you might as well spice it up and try something new…even if it’s for a few minutes!

My challenge to you is to implement one of the above items into your week, this week. See where it takes you, who you’ll meet or what new series is waiting for you on Netflix.

Coming up with a business name is harder than you think.

Trying to determine a name for your new business is like trying to get out of bed when you’re exhausted…it’s impossible.

I was sitting there staring at a blank piece of paper waiting for words to appear and have magic take over. Nothing happened.

Like the genius that I am, I knew what I needed to do. Go shopping. I left the house and eased my mind of the pressure by pampering myself with trying on all the latest fall fashion. Would you believe it actually helped?

Sometimes when we are under pressure we simply shut down. Our mind slows and the creativity goes out the window. It wasn’t until I left the house that my mind starting flooding with ideas again.

FIND YO’ NICHE! That’s what everyone tells you but sometimes the hardest things to figure out are within. That’s when I stepped back and said girlfriend you have to write down characteristics about yourself to find your niche.

First thing on my list was in big bold letters.

INTROVERT.

And with that my list was done. I couldn’t find anything more rewarding than helping other people just like me.

I’ve created a quick Q&A for you below because I’m home alone (naturally) and entertaining myself by talking to myself.

Q: If you are an introvert, how could you help another introvert?
A: Introverts feel most comfortable with another introvert. We just vibe. Taking my wealth of knowledge and giving it to someone who I know is listening and open to change is the best of both worlds. Together, we will come up with the best plan for you in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere.

Q: What services will you offer?
A: 1 on 1 coaching will be one of my main services to start with. A monthly success package with everything you need to succeed in your goals will be my next service. Many more to come after that!

Q: Will you do any in person coaching?
A: YES! I will be doing in coaching meet-ups for anyone in the NH/MA area.

Q: What will I get out of coaching? Why is it for me?
A: Feeling empowered is one of the best gifts someone can give you. It awakens your soul, your mind, your body and plans for your future. A coaching session will give you a guide and ideas to plan out an outcome that is achievable for you. You will have a listening ear to your struggles, understanding how to cope with the struggle, planning out a resolution and working towards the end result.

Want to join a community of introvert girls just like you? I have created a facebook group called Introverted Girl Boss and will be posting tons of content there. Make sure to join the group!

Your body doesn’t speak English.

Your body doesn’t speak English.

It is so important to pay attention to signs your body is giving you because let’s be real, it can’t speak to you. Although that would solve a lot of problems.

If you’ve ever experienced any of the following things, it’s a sign from your body.

-I’m always tired
-I’m craving candy
-My mood is up and down
-I have anxiety
-I could eat all day
-I can’t sleep
-I’m gaining weight
-My skin is acting up

Why gut health is SO important!

Did you know that their is over 200 side effects of poor gut health?

Do me a favor and go to google and just type in gut health and see what comes up. You’d think the most common side effects would be digestive issues like constipation or bloating. While both are in fact side effects on the list, the most common side effect is anxiety and depression. Who would have thought?

Since I’ve begun this journey my goal is to share my life changing results with….everyone. I purchased a product from a company that I honestly did not know much about. I thought I’ll lose some weight and that will be that. I call it the best mistake I’ve ever made!

When I received a package of plant based supplements, I read the instructions, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. I remember I took the first product (of 3) that night and woke up a new person. I AM NOT KIDDING.

I always had insomnia and natural anxiety at night considering I live alone. That next morning I woke up and realized I NEVER woke up once that night- at all, whatsoever. I remember being so confused and saying what the heck did I take that was so magical.

I’ll be taking you on my journey with me to a life of health and happiness. I never thought it was in my cards but here I am, on a Saturday evening creating as many social media platforms that I can so I can share this with EVERYONE.

HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN DECEMBER!

I think I’m half bear because once winter comes around all I want to do is hibernate. I get extremely lazy put off things that I need to do and stop working out. All things that I SHOULD be doing.

Considering today is December 1st these are the things that I will be doing for the rest of the month to hold myself accountable and be more productive.

WAKE UP 3060 MINUTES EARLY!

I don’t know about you but when it is dark out I struggle to get out of bed. I associate the dark with sleep and can’t wrap my head around the fact that I could be waking up and doing something productive. Isn’t sleep productive? HELLUR!? Waking up 30 minutes earlier every single day to do something for yourself, that could be making a homemade breakfast or working out or tidying up around the house before the day even starts. You’ll find that the feeling of accomplishment starts before your workday. That accomplishment will follow you all day and lead you to more accomplishments and better things.

WRITE DOWN DAILY GOALS!

Writing down daily goals will keep you on track and you will be more productive during the day. Also sidenote, you could do this in the morning during your 30 minutes of your time. Write down simple things like take out the trash, clean your room, get groceries, etc. The more you get done during the day the more accomplished she’ll feel the less you have to pile all of the chores during one day and feel overwhelmed.

START A PIGGYBANK

I know that sounds funny depending on your age maybe like, really a piggy bank?! I promise you won’t regret this. Decided figure amount that you like to take out every single paycheck. Write this number down if you have to or you can make a calendar reminder just don’t forget about it. Take out as little as $20 every single paycheck. If you get paid biweekly $40 extra a month. If you do the month by yourself something special something that you wanted. It’s a reward for holding yourself accountable and sticking to your goal. The next month increase your amount to $30 and so on and so forth. This will help you start saving money rewarding yourself and you’ll be happier, believe me.

What are your goals for December? Do you follow any of these practices that I’ve mentioned? Are you also super lazy or is that just me? Let me know in the comments below!

Stay cool my friend, stay cool.

Voice to text for the W🏆

Let’s be honest I am that girl.  You know that girl that thinks that she can be a creative writer but actually she can she can just talk, she can talk a lot.  And yes I’m writing this entire thing with voice to text because I’m in bed and I don’t want to waste extra energy I just want to talk. Another thing that we should clear up right now before you know we get too deep into this blog is that my grammar and you know like paragraphs and all that fun stuff yeah I’m just kind of like going with it. I’m not here to judge you when you’re writing and I hope that you’re not your judge me on mine because quite frankly I don’t really care.

I’ve always wanted to start a blog and document my life and share cool things that happened to me like once every year.  However with blog post comes a lot of writing and I hate writing it’s really boring.  One thing  I got from my dad though is I sure do love to talk. So that’s what I’m doing talking you and my cat. He always listens to me.

A little bit about myself, my name is Jessica you can call me Jessica. I’m 26 and I live in New England with my cat Martin. I’m forever single waiting  on my dream man to come in and sweep me off my feet or at least push my wheelchair around when I’m older. Whatever works I guess.  I have a love for travel and adventure I’m always on the go. The last year I really spent exploring and getting away when everyone is settling down and having children. It’s my way of accomplishing something when everyone else is getting hitched.

My goal for this blog is to share my traveling adventures, my life updates (more like struggles) and some helpful hints on dealing with men these days.  The next 487 post will be about dealing with men these days because that’s how awful they are.

If you have got this far, congratulations. I applaud you, seriously I’m clapping right now.  I’ll be back again this week with another blog update and hopefully some good laughs.

Stay cool my friends, stay cool.
