What makes a habit or routine in your life a good one? Well, for me… it’s one that helps keep you on track and living your BEST life.
The ones that uplift you, nourish your mind body soul and spirit. It’s the daily, little choices that shape who you are.
My guest today is Melissa Monte, the host of the Mind Love podcast and she’s simplifying how to set habits & routines to help you live your best life.
In this episode, you will learn:
- What are energy frequencies and how do you boost yours?
- What part does “disruption” play in squashing your limiting beliefs?
- What is a “Power List” and how does it work, simply?
Her story of childhood trauma and overcoming a eating disorder, depression and anxiety is incredibly powerful and I hope you find simple, practical tips if you struggle from mental health issues as well.
I dare say EVERY creative entrepreneur will hit a slump (big or small) at some point in their business. Let’s start a conversation on mental health, get to the core of what’s REALLY going on and start the path towards healing.

Favorite quotes from this episode:
[04:58] “You just kind of plug away at life, you do your thing. You watch your reality TV shows at night and eat your junk food and you sort of sit in your routine and play life a bit safe. But then, once you start to read a book or listen to a podcast or go, ‘hey, actually things can be different.’ Things could be way better.“ – Mary
[08:43] “When you start to become in tune with your own energy and what brings you energy or drains your energy, then it starts to be easier to do. It starts to be almost a fun game of figuring out who you are and what brings you joy” – Melissa
[13:25] “You can feel when you are in a room with somebody who is draining your energy, you can feel when you’re doing something that’s draining your energy, it’s probably a really big sign that those aren’t your people. That’s not what you’re supposed to be doing.” – Melissa
[22:01] “There is absolute power in writing your goal [down] every single day and writing it in a way that says, ‘I have already completed this.’ It’s like you’re retraining your brain to realize that yes, this is possible. Even if it’s a crazy big goal.” – Mary
[29:49] “It’s really important [to notice] how you attach your words because your words are a powerful thing. And if I only say words like, ‘I am powerful, I am strong, I am, I can do anything.’ These, these have a really powerful effect on the way you view yourself and ultimately, the way you view the world. “ – Melissa
