Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

When you say goodbyes, you say hello to the new. 

As an entrepreneur in the healing profession and a woman looking to balance work, love and self-care. It becomes vitally important to your overall health that you learn how to say goodbye.

It’s especially a good at time as 2018 wraps up to think about how you can become more DELIBERATE, more FOCUSED in the coming year on what is ESSENTIAL to you and allow yourself to say goodbye to the unimportant things that busy you, take up your time, and cause your work and relationships with yourself and others to suffer. That’s what I call radical self-care.

Celebrate Your Power to Choose and Overcome Learned Helplessness

Have you forgotten about your ability to choose? How do we do this?

When I was studying psychology at UCSB for my undergrad degree, I learned about a study conducted in the 1960’s by the famous psychologist Martin Seligman, which clearly illustrates why and how we forget our ability to choose. 

Should I Book That Ticket to Paris?

Should I Book That Ticket to Paris?

Did you know that each day you make about 35,000 decision? No wonder many of you suffer from decision fatigue. And when you are tired and worried you usually opt for the easy and familiar.

But what I know for sure is that indecision and the easy choice are both fear-based, and unlikely getting you that irresistible life you desire. 

Just yesterday, one of my clients had an opportunity come her way that she immediately thought, “I’m definitely not ready for this.” It happened to be the opportunity to speak at a women's retreat in Paris. Before even considering that this may be a huge step in the right direction, fear seized her and she shut it down immediately. But I ask her to reconsider with my magic weapon lie detector question.

The Best Stocking Stuffer Hands Down: Your Internal GPS System.

Did you know that you can use the wisdom of your body to guide you in decision making? From what outfit to wear today, to what man to marry. 

It can be such a busy time, the holidays, and though it’s always important to quiet the mind and feel the body, it’s especially important when life outside ourselves get hectic. 

Do You Have Decision Fatigue?

Do You Have Decision Fatigue?

I’ve been observing from clients lately, and me too really, that a lot of us busyaholics are in a place of “decision fatigue.”

What's decision fatigue anyway?

When you have a lot going on, which for us busyaholics feels like almost always, and you’re not making decisions about things that are on your mind. You’re ruminating over and over about the many different decisions you have to make, yet you may not even be aware of it, or just slightly aware. It might come in the form of a repetitive thought like, "oh no, and what am I going to do about the holidays?" And the energy you’re putting into having unanswered questions on your back burner is tiring you out.
