Are you a calm creature in your yoga class, then get home and yell at your kids?
Do you ever read an inspirational book or blog and think, “Yes! That makes total sense, and I’m going to start doing that!” Then life gets busy and it never quite happens?
Do you ever feel like you’re two different people living in the same body? Saying one thing, doing another?
I wrote about this in a guest blog on Tiny Buddha last week titled ‘How to Be Your Best Version of You a Lot More Often’.
It received a huge response from women all over the world. It seems I’m not the only one who suffers from this Jekyll and Hyde affliction.
Thankfully I’ve discovered a way to become more even keeled. It involves figuring out what brings out my best and worst qualities so I can bring more (or less) triggers into (or out of) my life.
Of course, as the Queen of Getting It Out of Your Head and Onto Paper, I’ve created a printable Action Sheet to help you brainstorm what brings out your best and worst so you can hatch a simple plan to be your Best Self more often.

A greater sense of self-awareness is always the key to unlocking more happiness and fullfillment. Once you understand what makes you tick (and what ticks you off!) you can be your Best Self more consistently.
I know that my Best Version of Me is kind, loving, patient, calm, positive, playful and fun! But it’s hard to be any of those things when I’m overwhelmed, rushed, running late, tired or don’t have enough ME time.
You can read about how I used this self-knowledge to turn things around for myself. Sure, my poor version of me still emerges more often than I’d like, but my Best Version has a chance to shine a LOT more often. I love feeling like my Best Me. (My family loves that side of me too.)
