Helping Your Kids Thrive At Home

Shari, a mother of two, and I talked recently, and our session quickly turned to how her kids, 11 and 4, are handling being at home — and how Shari and her husband are doing as well. Together we created a list of ways to help her kids thrive during the current stay-at-home order. Take Charge Of Your Current Situation Our new normal of physical distancing is going to be with us for a while. If you’ve been limping along or holding your breath for the order for a return to school, stop kidding yourself. Don’t wait a moment longer to create a new way of living at home that helps you...

Curbing Corona Anxiety

Yes, it’s an overwhelming and stressful time. But you can curb your anxiety around the coronavirus, even when so much is unknown and unpredictable right now. What’s the open secret of how to do that? Lean in, use your tools (or get some), and face this situation, and yourself, head-on. Here’s how: Feed on Facts, Not Fiction Stick to a few trusted news sources for information and stop believing everything you read on social media.

A Gentle Tool To Reflect On Your Year

A Gentle Tool To Reflect On Your Year

Here we are at the end of a year and a decade, the perfect time to take a few minutes to use a gentle tool to reflect on your year. Perhaps you already journal, practice gratitude, look for the lessons of the past year or create an affirmation or word for the coming year. The tool I’m offering today is a little different than any of those valuable practices, and it can be used by children as well as adults anytime and every day if you like. I can’t take credit for thinking of this tool. I learned it from a friend’s Dad over a game of Bananagrams at Thanksgiving time. (You...

Back To Basics: 10 Spiritual Laws To Remember and Practice

I had a session with a client recently and at one point we were talking about her meditation practice. She’s only been practicing for a short time, but she’s doing it daily and seeing the benefits. However, at this session, she mentioned her difficulty in “getting rid of her thoughts” and “getting her mind to be quiet.” We talked about how this is not really how the mind is built, nor is it a realistic goal of meditation. She said, “Oh, yes, I guess I forgot that,” which I thought was such a sweet and gentle acknowledgement of where she’d...

How To Use Your Strengths To Create A Resilient Life

Resilient people don’t shy away from difficult or uncomfortable situations that they know they must deal with to create the life they want. Take Susan for example. She came to me recently to talk about wanting to go from full-time to part-time work as a massage therapist. While she’s clear on her why — more time for travel and family — Susan is anxious about dealing with her client’s reactions when she invites them to move on to other practitioners. There are a lot of nuances to making this sort of transition, but two main areas are involved. The logistics of Susan’s schedule changes and the...

I Found A Tick and Other Reasons To Become More Resilient

I Found A Tick and Other Reasons To Become More Resilient

It’s just a little, little thing, a tick, but, oh, how it focuses the mind. I found a tick on my forearm this past weekend, while I was down in West Virginia. (Or, West By God Virginia, as it’s more rightly called.) The first thing I did, without even thinking, was to start breathing deeply. I felt my belly and my feet. I probably said, “Oh, S#it” a few times, too. Just some things to get over the initial stress reaction. Because you see, I have chronic Lyme disease in my central nervous system, which they didn’t discover until after I’d had it for at least 2 years. So there are still...

How To Define Your Ideal Customer So They Can Find You

To reach your ideal customer — the people who need your services the most — and help them find you, you have to be able to define who that person is. I know what you’re thinking, you work with all kinds of people on so many types of issues! I hear that from business coaching clients all the time. But if you’re marketing to everyone, you’re reaching no one. You’ve got to define your ideal customer so you can speak directly to them, and so they are more likely to see themselves working with you and getting the benefits and results you can provide.
