Mini Coaching Sessions Call…

Ashley’s question: I would like more tips on time management and ways to get enough sleep and still get everything done- specifically Mandy, like tips you have on how to make sure you don’t miss treatments and can still get places on time and still get enough sleep to function- I used to be really good at it and over the last year I have lost my abilities.


  • What are the things that make it difficult for you to stay on task right now?
  • When things were going well with this – what were you doing?
  • What is your schedule full of right now?


  1. Anticipate your excuses and set up boundaries for them (i.e. I get tired and lazy and don’t want to do my treatment when I’m relaxing on the couch sometimes. So, we bought a cheap $75 nebulizer on Ebay and it stays in the living room so that I get my breathing treatment done.)
  2. Day of REST!!!!
  3. Give yourself GRACE – some seasons are more hectic than others. If that’s the season you are in because of school, etc. then give yourself grace to let go of some things for a season so you can be your best in the current season you are in!
