Magnesium...Miracle Mineral?

Have you ever heard the question, “what’s the matter with you, do you have rocks in your head?” I must admit that as a kid, I heard that more than once. I was a little “day dreamy”, and often lacked complete focus on what I was doing at the time. Happily, most of that focus problem has subsided (please don’t ask my wife!). The good thing is, however, I still have rocks in my head…and so do you. Without them, our brains couldn’t form a thought. They’re called minerals and without them, we…

Life Balance - Having second thoughts about how you're spending your time?

eople take information in via different modes, so although the bulk of my posts are in written form, here is a video mini-coaching session on life balance.  This was the result of a client (a wife and mom and business owner) who was worrying out loud about the amount of hours she has been spending at the office.

 

Enjoy, and I'd love to hear your feedback. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvMYCPZK4pk

Myth Buster: The Perfect Balance

Balancing work and home life is what we all strive for: we multi-task, we organize, we cut to the chase, we learn the tricks.  But you know what?  Having that perfect balance is an urban myth. 



 

Let’s think about this for a minute.  Balancing by its nature is risky business.  Tightrope walkers balance, gymnasts balance, window washers balance.  This isn’t for everyone.  Sure most…

What Type Of Thinker Are You, Learning About The Mind From Temple Grandin

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours.  She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures.  Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards.  The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.  

Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple…

Trying to "Have it All" and Feeling Guilty About it, Too

When I started this blog recently, my first post was about the quest that many women go on in order to "have it all."

What exactly does that mean?

Well, for the most part, it means that http://bit.ly/gsU2EN

Meditative Injuries

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know I’ve been struggling to find balance in my life. Last October, I made a solo trip to an Arizona spa for four days in order to reclaim myself. I spent the majority of my trip learning how to meditate and how the practice could enhance my life. Like any A-type personality, I took notes and attempted to schedule my day around meditation. If you have seen Julia Roberts in Eat Pray…

Join Mama w/MAMABlogger365 initiative ~ Gwyneth Paltrow, Stress & Strategies, raising awareness for M.O.M.

It’s so easy to turn inward when we think about motherhood and what it means and how we do it every day. But even celebrities are not immune to trying to do it all – of course, their circumstances and list of daily to-do’s are different, but in essence, maybe not so much, as evidenced by…

Hello Peace... Welcome Back...

There was a time when I felt like my life was turned upside down. I had so many obstacles coming in my direction at one time: divorce, single parent to a toddler, increased bills and less money, bankrupt business, loss of a close friendship... Wow, that takes energy just thinking about it and when all of this came crashing at me at once, I completely lost balance and damn near my sanity.

These life experiences have taught me that we all have to go through obstacles in life, but the effects… Continue

Lately, I have really been trying to be mindful, and have a mind-body connection because I feel disconnected inside. Logically I know stress can kill, but I put so much of myself into others, most days I often run on empty.…
