Mindfulness Techniques For Anxious Moms

by James West

If you experience anxiety, it can wreck how you show up in your life and as a mom. Anxiety (the type I’m referring to here) is feeling fear plus an uncertainty about the future. It’s this combination of fear with the unknown that the brain runs wild with. For example, if your child doesn’t get accepted into a specific school, your brain on default might start to think about the future unknowns with respect to their education, causing you to feel anxious. The good news is

[GreenBiz publishes a range of perspectives on the transition to a clean economy. The views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect the position of GreenBiz.] For society as a whole it is an absolute must that businesses look to become more sustainable. Simply put, the planet and its people will not survive if we don’t change our ways, and become more sustainable in our consumption.

Circularity's potentially planet-saving power

by John Stapel

This article originally appeared in our Circularity Weekly newsletter. Subscribe to the newsletter here. During a recent visit to Los Angeles, I was preoccupied with thoughts about our species’ addiction to consumption.

How often has your inbox been hit by "loss and damage" of late?

Blue carbon will be the next frontier of carbon crediting

Moving beyond the diversity checkbox

by John Stapel

In the early days of facial recognition and wearable devices, products from HP, Google and Apple often had a hard time identifying or entirely misidentified Black people. These companies unintentionally developed racially biased technology, a failure that spotlighted the risks and challenges of letting loose AI and other automated, decision-making technologies built on biased code. During GreenBiz’s VERGE 22 last week, Anthony Oni, managing partner and CEO of the Elevate Future Fund at Energy

Building A Connection Bank With Your Kids

by Ann deBruyn

So often we are teaching, helping, and parenting our kids so that they can be “good” members of society, and so much of that requires us to teach them how to be in our world, and do things our way.

Credit Card And Debt Scripts

by Donna Ryder

In this article we will break down “credit card scripts”, what they are, why people use them, and how they can be dangerous. The reality of talking about credit card debt can be difficult. It’s one of the biggest credit card mistakes, to avoid it.

How Adobe built an all-electric office tower

by Donna Ryder

Investing is the single most effective way to get rich. By opening an investment account, you have access to the biggest money-making vehicle in the history of the world: the stock market.  But a lot of you believe you have to do some complex, fancy work to invest… or that you have to have a lot of money to make the most of investing.  This is not true: You don’t have to be the smartest person in the room to invest, you don’t have to be a millionaire, and you don’t have to fo

How To Buy a Car

by Donna Ryder

Part of my rich life is buying as much coffee as I want. I never sweat small purchases like that. A car, however, is one of the biggest personal expenses that I’ll ever make.

Mom Guilt

by Ann deBruyn

Guilt is a feeling that comes from your thinking that you have done something wrong. Sometimes guilt can be useful, depending on why you’re feeling guilty, but other times, it can be hindering. And when it comes to being a mom, Mom Guilt is a phrase we use to describe feeling guilty in relation to our kids. As moms, we take this feeling of guilt we create in our thoughts, and we make it mean that we are bad moms. It doesn’t just show up when we make mistakes, it comes up when we didn’t eve

How to Invest in Index Funds (Get invested in 5 min)

by Donna Ryder

Knowing how to invest in stocks is an important step you can take to achieve financial freedom. It’s a statement backed by TONS of research. The best way to invest in stocks is through index funds.

Having a mindfulness routine paired with self care is one of the best ways to take care of your mental, emotional, and spiritual health. It goes beyond treating yourself to a new outfit, having ice cream, or taking a bubble bath. It’s understanding how your brain and body work, so you can bring awareness to how you show up in the world (I call this doing the “inner work”).

How to Get More Out of the Great Resignation

by Donna Ryder

The Great Resignation, as it’s become known, has been a wake-up call for employers and a shift in consciousness among workers. During the pandemic, employees realized that they were no longer willing to accept certain circumstances in their job, leading many to quit resulting in a shortage of labor. One of the primary reasons behind the Great Resignation was low wages, with many workers quitting simply because they were underpaid and often overworked. To ascertain how many workers ha

Your Self Identity

by Ann deBruyn

Did you know that you can be anybody you want to be? Whether you are a woman, a wife, or a mom, you are not defined by those roles.

We automatically think that we are who we are, we have been that way since birth, so we need to continue to be that way. We think it’s the only choice. But it’s not. Th

It’s an employee’s market right now. Here’s how to make the most of it.

by Donna Ryder

Less than two years ago, I was giving advice on finding a job in an employer’s market.  I said to shift your mindset from that of a job seeker to that of a Top Performer.

You want to evaluate the company in the same way they’re evaluating you.  In an employer’s market, you might feel that you’re at a disadvantage because there are so many other people competing for the same job.  Don’t!  Rathe
