As the holiday season approaches, it is a time of year that we can easily get off track from doing the daily habits that keep us healthy.
Here are two unexpected health benefits that you can enjoy and do regularly as you get into the spirit of the holiday season…
Through out the festive season, do you end up feeling and as though you are in a perpetual state of doing?
Most of us can relate to being exhausted when the big day comes and even being a bit resentful about all the work that seems to come with the season. The bustle of the yule tide activities, parties, and commitments can leave you feeling as though there is not enough time, money, nor sleep. At the same time, you might feel as though there is too much food, drink and expectations! Left unchecked, it doesn’t take long before you can start feeling as though you are ‘doing the season’ instead of ‘experiencing the celebration’.Read More
Do you know of anyone in a relationship who says yes to everything? Whether this be with a significant other, family member, friend or work colleague; do they agree with absolutely everything the other person in the relationship says, wants, or does?
If your answer is yes, is the relationship balanced, fair, respectful, trusting, and honest? If your answer is yes again …I will stick my neck out here and say that this kind of relationship exists only in the movies!
Disagreement is inevitable. Compromise is often necessary to achieve resolution. However compromise isn't always healthy.Read More
One of the common issues that many of my clients want to overcome is procrastination. When the important things aren’t getting done and the to-do list keeps growing, it is frustrating to feel like you will never be on top of things.

Do you ever feel like you are hanging on too tight…I mean hanging on to the next thing you need to do, want to do or must do? At times, I find myself moving and maneuvering through the day with the precision of a racing car driver. Determined to achieve the desired outcomes envisioned, I exhaust myself in the pursuit! Willfully hanging on too tight to the steering wheel of life is not only physically tiring, but it is spiritually destructive.Read More
There is a quote by Earl Nightingale that states ”You are now, and you do become, what you think about.” There have been numerous studies that concur that this is largely true. So why is it that many people believe that they are victims of the events or circumstances that have occurred in the past? Why is it that they are willing to accept that what they have, who they are, and what their future holds is limited to far less than what they ideally want? They don't need to.Read More
As humans, sometimes we complicate life and forget about the simple things that bring delight and richness to life. Observing the innocence of children, their essence, purity and authenticity, their ability to be present in the moment, which is anything but complicated, isn’t it something that we can all learn from?Read More
Do you try to make all the wrongs right with comments like, “Perhaps you could have done it differently” or “They didn’t mean to hurt your feelings”, or “I guess they aren’t ready to talk”? Being present to someone else’s unfolding drama can feel overwhelming; as discomfort and fear build, anticipating a tsunami of emotion to come, we can find ourselves working hard to deescalate the situation and reach for higher ground being unsure as to what you should say or do. But is this the support they need?Read More
Your feelings have been hurt. Your friend has reacted to something you said in such away that has made you feel like you are not trusted. She has been one of your closest friends for years and you have been a loyal and faithful friend. Because of this, you feel hurt and avoid her. As time goes by your hurt feelings turn into resentment. The relationship is suffering badly.
Likely, a very common culprit has been at play damaging this relationship. Do you know what it is?Read More
Sometimes life throws you curveballs that you aren’t expecting where situations show up where you don’t feel the least bit prepared. I am sure that you would agree as you think of situations in your life where things didn’t go as planned because of circumstances out of your control! Disappointment can be like a heavy black cloud. What do you do to move through it?Read More
