The Stories We Tell

We are made up of our memories and the stories we tell about both ourselves and our experiences in the world. When it comes to personal growth and evolution, I believe it is crucial to take a close look at these stories and be as honest as possible in our assessment of them. Here’s why: […]

WST 113: Transcendence and Descendence

philosophy, health, wellness, politics

Seems to me we’re either trying to transcend this existence or descend into enough distraction to get us through the day. What if happiness is in between? And, more importantly, what if all this was something my dog told me? SMALL STEP INTENSIVE PRIVATE COACHING: BOOK A FREE 15 MINUTE CALL WITH ME TO FIND […]

Put You in Your Place

If you know me, you know I don’t go in for the woo woo. It’s not that I don’t think there’s the possibility of magic, the supernatural and what not. It’s that I simply don’t care. As in, it makes no difference to me one way or the other. So, with that said, this post […]

That Time I Turned Off YouTube Comments.

You know when you do something that feels so right on the money that you say to yourself “I should’ve done this years ago!”? That happened to me a month ago when I returned to YouTube. But, being back on YouTube wasn’t what was ‘so right.’ It was my decision to turn off the comment […]

WST 092: I am, therefore I think

philosophy, health, wellness, politics

I pull a little switcheroo on “I think, therefore I am” because it’s the right thing to do. I then follow that up with a little diatribe on the phrase “cooler heads prevail.” But fret not. I remember to discuss Liam Hemsworth’s kidney stones. Support me (please): Patreon Find me: sidgarzahillman.com SmallSteppers.com stanfordinn.com (resort) Podcast […]

The Thriving Mind.

Perhaps it’s good to briefly write about the mechanics of stress. Short story: Stress is a good thing when delivered to us in a measured way. I call it the Goldilocks of Stress. Just the right amount, just the right quality. And yes, that goes for chairs, beds and porridge too. Too much stress and […]

Are you a Sideliner or a Backburner?

Because of what I do, I’m hyper aware of trends, behaviors, and habits in the happy living arena. I pay close attention to what works and doesn’t work for people, and especially what stops people from living life on their terms. (My approach removes these obstacles, but I gotta know what we’re up against, dig?) […]
