Sandra Halling Notable Quotes 

“There are moments where we need to focus on strength and there are moments where we need to focus on flexibility. And it really is about picking what we’re going to focus on and getting ourselves to shift gears later.”
Sandra Halling

“I would really encourage you to adopt that self-compassion to say; every action matters, every step forward matters, and I’m going to acknowledge every one of those actions and steps forward.”
Sandra Halling

“There’s sort of a productivity muscle that we can strengthen by allowing ourselves to have just a little bit of structure in our day and using that structure to create clarity about the bigger picture goal and then tying our daily actions into that bigger picture goal.”
Sandra Halling
