3 Tips to Starting Anew! When a new year occurs or anytime in our lives when we are ready for a change, even when we want that change, it can feel scary and uncomfortable. Letting go of the past can sometimes be a difficult task. Old habits from our past, that are embedded heavily into our subconscious minds, can feel like concrete that is there to stay. But when we choose to focus on the new beginning that moving forward offers us, as opposed to what we are letting go of, it can make the…

Set up Healthy Boundaries

Quote: “Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.” Stephen Covey Tool # 6 of the Refresh, Reset & Reconnect Series: Set up Healthy Boundaries When you set up healthy boundaries, you are telling yourself that you care about you!

So, “Mrs. Claus,” as I’ve been referred to at times, has learned to set some healthy boundaries to keep her sanity during these holiday…

I think that is a good way to describe how powerful our imaginations really are! When we worry, we are imagining all the “what if” scenarios, aren’t we? And, our imaginations can really conjure up some pretty horrific stories, that’s for sure. Now, a little bit of worry or concern, which might be a better reframe, about a person’s well being,…

What Lights You Up?!

This next-level tool/practice/strategy will help you identify and focus on what really energizes you, inspires you and gets you in your “zone!” It’s tiring, stressful and anxiety-producing to be consistently ruled by your own “should’s, have to’s, and musts. Not only are all those “shoulds” and their cousins draining your energy, but they also keep you from feeling any juice in your life. Life without that zing and/or lightness can feel awfully overwhelming and burdensome. So, it’s time to create a “What Lights Me Up” list! By creating this type of list, you will become…
