Beating Holiday Stress Tip #2: Stop Doing List

by on December 17, 2014

beating holiday stress video 2

What is a Stop Doing List? The last few days I’ve been bombarded with emails, articles, and newsletters, and they all talk about the same topic: avoiding holiday stress and burnout. I can easily get overwhelmed just from reading all of it!  It seems “holiday stress” has become an epidemic. Simply watch a TV commercial. You will see and hear the high-speed, high-level “busyness.” Yes, the background scenes are well “decorated” with perfect trees, gorgeous feasts, and festive Christmas music, but just watching those commercials can wear me out.

To help you feel more joy and less holiday stress, I have created a few short videos where I share FUN and SIMPLE tips that are easy for you to apply.

In this “Beating Holiday Stress” video, I’d like to share with you a very simple practice that can alter your holiday experience: Create a “Stop Doing List.”

Have you been to the mall recently? It is super-packed, no parking, and people are running around like crazy. Stress is in the air! Let’s stop the epidemic and get back to what’s really important.

Wait a minute…you’re thinking that’s just the opposite of what I need! I need to get organized and have a daily “to-do” list. ...


Beating Holiday Stress Tip #1: Change your shoulds to wants

by on December 16, 2014

beating holiday stress

The holidays are a busy and stressful time for many people. Holiday Stress is in the air, and it’s contagious! Even if your intention is to fully enjoy the season despite the stress, there is so much to do during the month of December that it can be overwhelming: attending parties, decorating, baking, gift shopping, card sending, and the list goes on…

The last thing you want is to start the new year completely drained; you want to create some Balanced Moments in your life right now – but how?

To help you feel more joy and less holiday stress, I have created a few short videos where I share FUN and SIMPLE tips that are easy for you to apply.

In the first “Beating Holiday Stress” video, you and I will have a conversation around changing your shoulds to wants.

When you do something because you have to or you “should,” or maybe because it is expected of you, it creates negative energy and it might drain you and make you feel stuck. You can easily get unstuck by changing you attitude to a more positive one.

To shift your negative attitude to more positive so you can get to action, do one ...


Why is self-love so difficult?

by on November 18, 2014

Why is self-love so difficult

In the past, I was driven to be a high-achiever, always striving to create a successful and fulfilled life. Service was one of my most important values, but years of being in service taught me to take care of myself only when everybody else had been taken care of. The problem was that the more I gave to others, the less I gave to myself. I became unhappy and unhealthy, and knew inside that something had to change. It took me years of self-discovery and personal growth to learn the meaning of self-love. From all the years of hard work and discovery, I now have no doubt that self-love is the essence of healthy relationships with others.

Think about it for a minute: when you’re being hard on yourself, when you beat yourself up for something you haven’t done, or even something you have, when you look in the mirror and you don’t love the person you see, can you be as loving, kind, and compassionate as you want to be for others?

You cannot create healthy intimate or even social relationships that satisfy you unless you fall in love with yourself first.

We must ask ourselves, why is it so much easier ...


How to Feel Less Overwhelmed – There’s More to Life Than Laundry!

by on October 27, 2014

Overflowing laundry basket

My clients are always asking me how they can feel less overwhelmed. One client shared with me recently how she got frustrated with the basket of sheets sitting in her hallway, waiting to be folded. Every time she walked past the basket she’d think to herself, “I should fold those” and then she’d feel overwhelmed. She already had 100 other things on her to-do list! When I asked her how she normally deals with laundry, she shared that they actually have a system in place where every weekend her husband and her kids fold the laundry in order to share the load. She realized that even though they actually have a good system in place, she still obsesses about the basket. She decided that from now on she will leave the basket inside the laundry room and close the door, trusting in her family members and the system, and choosing to release responsibility over it.

What’s the secret to feel less overwhelmed?

Let’s look at the basket of laundry as a metaphor.

We as women tend to carry many hats. We are typically the family chauffeur, the laundress, and the house cleaner…in essence, “the chief cook and bottle washer.” Though we excel at ...
