Reframing with Paula Sacco

Reframing with Paula Sacco
“Choosing to look at at a situation with a different perspective or different way can change everything.”
- Paula Sacco

On this episode of the Plan Simple Meals Podcast, I’m really excited to talk with Paula Sacco, a certified professional coach who specializes in helping women rediscover, reimagine and redesign their lives in order to fulfill new purposes and connections.

Paula is the mom of three teens, and we talked about what it’s like with older kids. She talks about how friendships change as our kids get older. Sometimes we need to make more of an effort to get together when we aren’t seeing friends at kids activities regularly or because we or our friends get more involved in work.

Friendships aren’t the only thing that changes. Our perception of time changes too. Paula works with a lot of women who want to figure out how to make more time in their lives for themselves and what they want to do—and then as kids get older it turns into almost too much time.

We talk about:

  • How kids health issues can be a way into changing our eating
  • The need to revisit how we eat when new changes occur in our bodies
  • Making a point to sit down for family meals
  • Regularly putting good food in front of the kids so they learn to eat well based on their bodies
  • How things change when you take care of yourself
  • Why it’s important to pay attention to how you talk to yourself
  • The radical self-care of getting away
  • Looking at your life going forward and what you want it to look like

    Doable Changes

    SET AN INTENTION. Decide what you want your reality to be, like I am a neat person who always puts things away. Write it on a note card. Keep that by your desk and by your bed. Look at it at different points throughout your day.

    CONNECT REGULARLY WITH FRIENDS. Pick a day, say the third Wednesday of every month, and invite your friends—no RSVPs, just people coming as often as they can. Meet for coffee or to talk about goals, but get together.

    FIND YOUR WHY. If you want to make a change, knowing why can help you get there. For example, you know “I should workout” why is that important? Keep asking that over and over until you get to that core of why it’s important to you.

    From Overwhelm to Ease

Paula loves building a community of women who transform their lives by focusing more on their individual passions and goals.
