As Life Opens Up

As life is opening up more and more now, it seems like a good time to check in. How are you doing? I was recently re-reading an article I wrote in March 2020 right after COVID-19 was declared a world pandemic. It’s about how to use our inner resources in challenging times. Interestingly, I found it still quite relevant, even though “things” are opening up and the infection rates are way down due to the diligence of the shut downs and the vaccination programs in place. So why would this time now be challenging if…

An Exercise in Gratitude

100 Things You Are Grateful For (or would be grateful to receive in future) This exercise is simple; just think and write out 100 things you are grateful for (or would be grateful to have some day). “100 things??”, you say! “Wow that’s a lot!” It may seem to be…and that may be the point. Too often, we are not used to using our minds and hearts to be aware of all we are grateful for in our lives. When you begin this exercise, it may be easy to come up with 20 items on…

Grateful We Survived!

My husband and I recently had an experience that was rather scary and to say the least-stressful. We were driving down the freeway in the HOV lane doing 69 mph when the car-a 2015 Subaru Outback that has been well maintained-went into a screeching skidding stop! My husband did not have his foot on the brake. He was able to pull over to the shoulder, but we were still sticking out in the HOV lane a bit, as the shoulder was not really wide at that place. We were very fortunate that no one was…

Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy Is Your Awareness Connector for Change

It’s interesting that Stress Awareness Month has been held every April Since 1992. Even though its focus is on increasing the public’s awareness about stress and its health implications, we still need to keep bringing more awareness to this chronic health issue after all these years. If anything, it seems like there are more and more articles, websites, help lines, etc on this very prevalent topic. No doubt, people experienced stress in various forms long before our so called “modern culture” has, yet we are now more entrenched in environments that have us feeling overwhelmed…

Why Your Mind is Your Best Weight Loss Tool

Did you know that the battle for fitness is waged in the mind? It is. It doesn’t matter how many diet books you buy, what kind of gym membership you have or how great of a calorie counter you are– all of these things take a back seat to the importance of your mindset when it comes to shedding pounds and getting fit. This is because losing weight is not something that happens overnight, and it is not something that comes about as the result of one, big decision. Losing weight is a series of decisions.…

Making the decision comes first!

If you or someone you know has struggled with getting rid of excess weight has gone down the “COVID Weight Gain” tunnel, then I know you’ll appreciate the next article. I’ve had my own experience with weight gain struggles over the years. It was never a lot of weight-maybe 10-12 pounds, but since I’m a small person, that 10-12 pounds made a big difference for me. And, it happened slowly…so it wasn’t an overnight realization. Along the way, as I did notice some upticks on the scale, I’d tell myself-oh well it’s an age thing…it’s…
