"Changing Thoughts....Changes Feelings...Changes Your Life!"
We have all said it, "I am going to get back on track next week." Next week comes and we have an excuse why it needs to wait ONE MORE day. The excuse trap becomes our best friend and we end up on the endless road of excuses keeping us stuck in the comfortable zone.
The trick to stopping this viscous cycle is to create awareness about your comfortable zone and BE HONEST...no more lies!! This is usually the most difficult step because it's easier to just keep doing things the way we have always done things without any rhyme or reason. This is true even if what we are doing doesn't get us the results we want but simply because it's easy. This is normal behavior for ALL humans. We try to take the path of least resistance and in this case it means what is comfortable NOT the uncomfortable road (new habits).
By going to the uncomfortable zone and doing something different we have a chance to see results! After all the uncomfortable zone is where all the growth happens! It starts...
The new normal for many people is trying to figure out how to work from home with kids. It doesn't matter the age of your children, all ages presents it's challenges. I have a 15 year old at home and he definitely believes he knows more than me and he doesn't need any structure. The parents with first through fifth graders at home are struggling with completely different issues. As I talk to my clients, I hear frustration from ages 2 to 21!
Working from home already has its unique challenges like: HOW DO WE GET ALL OUR WORK DONE WITH ONLY A COMPUTER? We are finding out some things are not available without in person contact. Also video meetings have their own frustrations like connection issues, interruptions, and not being able to read body language. Yes there are perks working from home but I am definitely seeing there are frustrations.
This all would be easier to handle if we didn't have the added stress of children at home needing help with school, food and...
So many us have been affected by the Covid-19. There are many reasons why fear sets in: the possibility of the vulnerable loved ones getting sick like: children, elderly or those with weakened immune system, who will be quarantined and if so, for how long, how will this affect the economy or my pocket book, how will this impact us globally. Yes no one wants to get sick but the illness is not what will affect us the most this year, its the financial stress this will put on everyone. Most people will recover but the hit this will have on the entire world is hard to wrap our brains around. When we start to think about how this POTENTIALLY could affect us, we have a choice to allow fear or love guide us. Your choice! These thoughts have power! Fear is normal to have and actually is there as a checks and balance to ensure you take the time to think about our choices. Fear also can be crippling. Fear only becomes...
How do we get fear?
If you have read any of my post you will know I talk about the 60,000 thoughts we have each day. Most of the those thoughts we do not speak. This means we have ALOT of private conversations in our head influencing how we feel about what's happening to us and directly affecting what we do. This is the key to making a lasting change in ANY area of our lives. Our mind has POWER! When we realize change starts with understanding those private conversations we have in our head...this is when you stop the destructive cycle of allowing life to HAPPEN to you and start leading!
Fear or Courage Directing Your Life?
Today I am talking about how we stop allowing fear to control our lives. So many factors of our life need action and we have a choice to allow fear or courage to direct us. Your choice! We all know this is truth because we have all had amazing ideas and after some time thinking about it we come up with a million excuses as to why we CAN'T. Fear is the...
Laughter is the best medicine!
Last week was a rough week as my father in law went into the hospital with brain injury and is in serious condition. I went over to a friends house Saturday eve and I laughed until my face and stomach hurt. I didn't want to go because I was exhausted but I did and it was well worth the energy it took to get out the door.
When was the last time you sat down and uncontrollably laughed? We all need this medicine for many reasons and below I have listed a few but I want to relate laughter to getting you unstuck! We have all experienced times where we felt stuck in an area of our life. The stuck feeling usually can make us feel stressed.
Stress shows up different for everyone like:
Where? poor sleeping, debt, difficult relationships and/or work pressures. How we choose to respond will make the difference in getting ourselves unstuck in life. And our response to stress is directly linked to how happy we are.
How we describe...
How Do We Lose The Weight Forever?
This statistic is alarming. Most of us at some point in our life have been on a mission to lose weight or become healthier in our choices so we have more energy, have a world wide health scare or have some event where we want to look our best. The facts are 80% of people who lose at least 10% of their body weight gain the weight back if not more. What is the missing link in this? I believe most people do not consider the power of our thoughts keeping us stuck in destructive patterns with our health. This essential piece of the puzzle is important because it helps you understand why you are choosing the fast food instead of the fruits and veggies or sitting on the couch instead of exercising.
First, really think about it and ask yourself the most important health question: Why do you want to be healthy? Next, ask yourself: What happens once you achieve your why?
Lets give an example: You decide to lose 30 pounds for a...
