My favourite way to start the day 🌤 @fiveminutejournal

Traditions, memories, moments, connections. Some things are priceless. 🌟 What are you focusing on this holiday season?

New business cards for a new chapter! I’m really looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings career-wise— Finishing up my Ph.D. (It is possible, I promise!) creating new content for @psych_today, and some pretty amazing speaking engagements. But it’s the opportunities I can’t predict that I’m most excited about 💭. Do you have big plans for 2018? Let me know 👇🏼.
P.S. In case you missed it in my stories earlier this week, you can now sign up on my website to receive updates and news on my latest friendship + wellness tips ➡️ Link in bio.

Some of my favourite wellness ladies (@aeriallynn @fittybritttty @shaylaquinn @thetruespoon @paosfitworld @whatrobineats) have put together an amazing challenge that celebrates the different ways we practice gratitude and show ourselves some love. ✨ Today I’m sharing one of the practices that has made the biggest difference in my life— walking! Whether it’s waking up a little bit earlier so that I can walk to work 🌤 or just taking a few minutes for a stroll around the block, walking is such an important part of my self-care routine and has made a big difference in my ability to be present and connected. It’s my time to reflect on my goals and the things I am grateful for. It’s also my time to slow down and disconnect from my need to always be productive or “on”.
It’s simple. As it should be! The more easily we can incorporate changes into our lives, the more likely they are to last. If you have found a way to incorporate gratitude into your own life, I’d love to hear about it 👇🏼#withgratitudeandgrace

Remember what really matters when it’s all said and done 🙌🏼

What to do when life gives you lemons and your friends lemonade 🍋? I’m sharing how you can manage friendship envy in my latest for @psych_today (Link in bio). Is this something you’ve faced in your friendships? How did you manage to cope?

Good morning! Back to reality and feeling recharged after our Canadian adventure 🇨🇦. Thanks so much for all of your👌🏼recommendations and for following along as I had fun playing travel blogger!
Slowly working my way through my inbox this morning and getting excited about how many updates I have that I can’t wait to share with you! I also realized that I have a few spots open in my writing schedule. So if you have any questions about friendships or want to learn more about how to handle a difficult friendship situation, feel free to leave a comment or send me a DM!

That feeling when you just know you’ll be back...

My new happy place 💛. What’s yours?

We arrived in Tofino yesterday. Our trip has been building to this... Everywhere we went, all we heard was "Just wait for Tofino". We're here during *storm watching season*. And as much as I love thundershowers, we weren't entirely sure whether this was a real thing or the most clever marketing ploy. Well, this morning we woke up to one impressive storm 🌨 and it's safe to say we are hooked!
There really is something to be said for the healing powers of nature and I'm really looking forward to taking it all in over the next few days!
In the meantime, I recently shared a few tips for coping with anxiety with @bustle and the lovely @kalememaybe. Getting outside is obviously at the top of my list but there are a few others to check out if you're looking for "anxiety hacks" we can all use when we can't escape to places like Tofino.
You can find the link to the article (and some of my other recent interviews) on the Press page of my website --> Link in bio.

Appreciating the little things. Like this quiet moment on a rocky shore. Next up 🔜 Tofino.

No better feeling than being able to cross something off of your bucket list. ✔️Today, I can finally say that I've seen orcas in the wild! We also had a few close encounters with humpbacks, sea lions, and the sweetest little otter.
Whale watching has got to be one of my favourite things to do when traveling. Riding the waves and swells, breathing in the salty air, and scanning the horizon for spouts and splashes. For me, there's no better way to practice mindfulness and gratitude! Do you have a favourite thing you do when traveling? What are you hoping to cross off your bucket list next? I'd love to hear about your travel traditions and goals 👇🏼

Grabbed our coffees from the cutest little cart this morning before hitting the road to Victoria ☕️🚗

KELOWNA. Thank you for another perfect day 🍷.

An incredible (and foggy) morning hiking the trestles at Myra Canyon followed by an afternoon and evening of great food and even better wine. Kelowna, you are something else!

Not exactly the view I had in mind but no less beautiful 🚣🏼‍♀️❄️

And we've arrived! So grateful to be exploring our beautiful country on this thanksgiving weekend 🇨🇦. It's amazing what a change of pace and some gorgeous scenery can do for our mental well-being. A quick stop at Horseshoe Canyon before heading to the museum to check out the dinosaurs!

Today on @psych_today, I’m sharing some of the reasons you should consider using friendship apps if you’re looking to make new friends and expand your social circle (Link in bio).
Glad to be able to share some of my favourites, including @bumblebff, @peanut, @ilikevina, @tourlina, @meetmeapp, and @whistle.app. Have you used any of these? Do you have others to share? Let me know in the comments below 👇🏼.
With all of the hate, divisiveness, and fear that seems to surround us these days, I’m also grateful that my work focuses on bringing others together.

You should have a best friend. You don’t have enough friends. You are a “bad” friend. Find out why these kinds of thoughts are so counterproductive and so FALSE in my recent article on friendship myths for @psych_today (Link in bio).
P.S. In case you missed this week’s news, I officially launched my new website- miriamkirmayer.com. 🎉 If you’re looking for ideas on how to make, keep, or strengthen your friendships as an adult, make sure to check out my recent articles & interviews. #FriendshipFriday

#TravelThursday… That’s a thing, right? Beyond excited to share that I’ll be heading out West in just over a week. I’ve seen so much of the U.S. but haven’t explored all that Canada has to offer 🇨🇦. We’ll be stopping in Calgary (to see the dinosaurs, of course) and driving as far a Tofino (which I’m pretty sure is the most magical place on earth). Really looking forward to a little bit of a reset and to being surrounded by glacial lakes, giant redwoods, amazing wild (crossing my fingers we see moose & orcas 🤞🏼), and the pacific ocean.
I hope you’ll join me and follow along! And if anyone has suggestions For Banff, Jasper, Kelowna, Victoria, Tofino, or Vancouver, I’d LOVE to hear from you! Always happy to trade recs for Montreal!
P.S. 📷 is from my lovely sister @arigotz. She really does take the most beautiful photos!

“Big life events and milestones, like getting married, can bring out strong personalities, unexpected conflicts, and unresolved issues. And while bringing two families together is special in so many ways, it can also create more opportunities for clashes and stress.”
I recently shared a few tips for talking to your partner about family-related wedding planning stress with @TheEverygirl_. I hope it’s a helpful read, whether it’s something you’re struggling with now or are just looking for a few tips on how to handle family dynamics with your partner. Read more on @TheEverygirl_ (link in bio).

Treating myself to a smoothie bowl to celebrate my #blogiversary and combat this hot hot heat ☀️ @rejuicenutrition.
P.S. There's an exciting announcement over on Facebook @casualtoclose! If we aren't connected there yet, it would mean so much to me if you'd come check it out!

I’ve been little absent recently. With the one year anniversary of @casualtoclose coming up (tomorrow!), I’ve been taking it all in and thinking about what exactly I wanted to share.
So much has happened over the past year. It has been unbelievably exciting to see certain goals and dreams being realized. I’ve braved the fast-paced world of television and radio, written for one of my favourite sites, @TheEverygirl_ , and now have my own blog with @psych_today. It’s truly amazing to see just how far you can go when you set your mind to something, are passionate about what you are doing, and have the love and support of some pretty incredible friends, colleagues, and strangers.
On that note, this past year has also been extremely trying for some pretty significant personal/family reasons. I am so grateful for having this creative outlet and a way to move forward when everything else felt incredibly backwards.
It’s one thing to write and give talks + workshops about friendships. But it’s another thing entirely to really experience the profound impact our friends actually have on our lives. With that, thank you to each and every one of you for helping me make lemonade out of 🍋s and for making this adventure that much more meaningful! Looking forward to all that’s to come ☀️
