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…Continue

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

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…Continue

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of…

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…Continue

So how did you do?
One week ago, I challenged you, along with myself, to see if we could collectively stop the habit of using Reality TV Parenting as a way of spending time with our kids. Borne of my own guilt of using the latest episode of Survivor or anything on The Food…

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

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…Continue

I have a confession to make. I am addicted to my iPhone. I can’t leave the house without it. I am always on it. I love it. Sometimes I think my husband regrets the day he said I should get an iPhone. The list of reasons why, as a busy mom, I love my iPhone include: Read the list here

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…Continue

However, it's difficult knowing when to stop working when you're just starting

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.…Continue
