Ditch the Holiday Stress, Family Drama, and Conflict

Nov 21, 2020

Are you someone who experiences stress or anxiety around the holidays because of family conflict or drama? I hear from so many who want to enjoy the holidays but don’t because of pressure, drama, and longstanding conflict that arises.

 

If you can relate, continue reading and consider changing this for good. First of all, this is a year where many people will not be able to experience the holidays as they normally do. While this is unfortunate, consider if it could also be an opportunity for you to change any negative dynamics. Really think this through. Are there people you don’t enjoy seeing who you can avoid seeing this year? Do you usually have to drive around to many houses so that you make sure you meet everyone’s expectations that you see everyone, while experiencing stress and pressure the entire time? Do you usually host large meals, trying to make everything perfect for everyone? Take a step back and consider if you want to do something different...

How to Eat Mindfully for Weight Loss

Nov 05, 2020

Do you eat mindfully? Mindful eating is a way of eating that helps you be more in control of your eating habits without feeling judgement or shame the way you sometimes do when “dieting”. It involves maintaining in-the-moment awareness of what you are consuming. Unlike a diet, mindful eating does not involve “rules of eating”. It is about observing what you are eating and then observing the experience of eating it.

 

There are many benefits to mindful eating. It can help you slow down your eating, support weight loss, help reduce binge eating, improve digestion, change your overall relationship with food, help you appreciate your food more and help you make better food choices overall.  When you are mindful about what you are eating, you are paying close attention to what you are putting into your body and why. Because you are looking at why you are eating, you will begin to raise your awareness about when you are eating for emotional reasons,...

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Stress Level.

Oct 28, 2020

On a scale from 1 to 10 (with 1 being none and 10 being explosive), where would you rate your stress level right now? Having a high stress level ongoing is toxic for your mind and body. High stress levels can cause people to overeat, to overdrink, to have difficulty focusing, to make poor decisions, to have difficulty sleeping, and can increase people’s risk for heart and other health problems.

 

I believe there are two ways of reducing stress levels. One is a quicker fix, but not a permanent fix. The second is more of a long-term fix. I will share them both and if you are someone who experiences high levels of stress ongoing, I would encourage you to try them both.

 

Quicker fixes for managing stress.

The following suggestions are things you can do when you are experiencing stress. Engaging in these activities will help calm your system down or help you release tension or help distract you from your thoughts that are causing you to feel stress. These are all great...

How do you Achieve a Goal? One Step at a Time!

Oct 22, 2020

How do you hike up a big mountain? One step at a time. How do you run a marathon? One step at a time. How do you achieve a goal? One step at a time. It’s the same process. The steps can be slow and sometimes you might fall or backslide but if you keep taking steps in the right direction you will eventually get there.

 

In hiking a mountain, if you stop, you will be standing still in the middle of nowhere, looking up at what you could have achieved. Eventually you will have to make the choice to regroup and start climbing again or start hiking back down the mountain. The longer you stay standing, the less likely you will start pushing up the mountain again.

 

In running a marathon, if you stop you will watch other runners pass by you and you will never get to that finish line. The more you think about how tired you are, how much your feet hurt, how much further behind you are than others, or how much further you have to go, the less likely you will be to start running...

How to Manage Brain Fog

How to Manage Brain Fog

 

Brain fog is real for many people and it can impact overall functioning and productivity. Brain fog can occur as a result of lack of sleep, a poor diet, poor gut health and food sensitivities, medication you are taking, alcohol or other non-prescribed substances, thyroid issues, mental health concerns like depression and anxiety, stress, hormone changes or vitamin deficiencies. If you feel like you often have brain fog, you should speak to your doctor. You don’t have to feel like this ongoing.

 

If you need to wait to see your doctor, some first steps for getting relief from bring fog are:

 

Get 8 hours of quality sleep per night. So many people try to convince themselves that they can function on five or six hours of sleep per night and don’t realize the negative impact this is having on their overall functioning. Research consistently proves that adults need eight hours of sleep each night to function at their best. Anything...

Great Leadership is Not About a Title: 8 Tips for Becoming More of a Servant Leader

Sep 24, 2020

As Simon Sinek said, “A boss has the title, a leader has the people”. I agree with this completely. Bosses are caught up in their ego, while leaders are caught up in the success of their employees. Leadership is about how someone interacts with their team and inspires them to join together to work towards a common goal. Every member of a team should feel like they have a voice and that they are leaders in some way and leaders should be concerned with impact, not status.

Have you ever worked with someone who did not even take the time to get to know their employees? Have you ever worked with someone who never asked for feedback or input from those “below” them? Or how about someone who would just not show up for meetings without having the courtesy to let others know they would not be attending? In my opinion, these are not qualities of good leadership. These are the qualities of someone who is taking their most valuable assets, their employees, for granted....

Do you Feel Like you are on the Verge of Burnout?

Sep 17, 2020

Do you feel like you are getting close to being burned out? Or…are you already burned out? I think there is a lot of pressure out there for us to work, work, work, work and work more. Regardless of whether you are working in the home or outside of the home, for many it feels like there is always pressure to do more and to get more done. Many people spin their wheels and feel so busy, yet never feel satisfied that they are actually accomplishing anything that is rewarding.

 

In some organizations or industries, it is frowned upon when someone wants to take time to do something non-work related. In some places, not sleeping much at night is seen as a badge of honor. People brag that they worked on the weekend or took a very early morning flight to get to a meeting, leaving them with little sleep. People brag that they did not use their vacation time or that they “worked all night”. Some people make it a point to send emails very late at night and very early in...

Perfectionism Will Cost You Your Dreams

Sep 10, 2020

Are you a perfectionist? I was…at least much of the time. The definition of perfectionism is “the refusal to accept any standard short of perfection”. That may seem like a great way to be however, it can prevent you from moving forward in pursuing your goals. When you always strive for perfection, you may never actually make forward progress because you are always striving to learn “one more thing”, to make something better before putting it out into the world or to continue to plan something instead of executing it. When you strive for perfection, you are working toward an ideal that is unattainable and therefore end up achieving less than others who do not try to live up to a perfectionist standard.

 

It has been said, and I agree, that perfectionism can be a form of procrastination. If you keep looking to perfect something, then it actually never gets “done”. You keep thinking about it, tweaking it, and working on it without ever...

Let's talk about embarrassment, guilt and shame.

Aug 29, 2020

We often think about these three feelings the same way, however, they are really quite different emotional states to which all humans are subjected. I think we can all agree that we would prefer to avoid all three! They are generally considered to be negative feelings and for some, they can linger for a long time or even a lifetime.

 Embarrassment

Embarrassment is an uncomfortable feeling you experience when you fear that something about you will be / or has been seen by others. It occurs when we fear that others see something other than the image of ourselves that we want them to see and believe. Embarrassment occurs when you trip and fall in front of others, you have something stuck in your teeth, the zipper on your pants is open, you forget what you are going to say when speaking to a group of people or you feel uncomfortable about your body or a pimple on your your face.

 

Per the examples above, embarrassing situations can be related to something about your physical...
