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...

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

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...

3 Experts Weigh In: How To Make Time For What Matters Most

There are a few simple questions you can ask yourself — even on the go — that will help you take back your time for what’s really important to you. Summer is such a busy time it can be hard to make time for what matters most. Even the long summer days don’t seem to be enough for the extra time we all need and want.

This week I’m sharing the advice of 3 expert authors, each with a unique...
