Three Ways to Beat Holiday Stress

The holidays are usually stressful for many people as it is. This year everyone is feeling the stress more than usual. Right? Right.

The current state of the world is so far outside of our control. What you and I can control is how we respond to the stresses that we're all collectively facing. Times like these are when having a wellness practice is your best ally.

These are practices that have served me well during some of the most challenging times in my life. Making my health a priority has been my ace card.

Ways to Get Out of a Rut FAST

There was a time in my life when I wanted to get healthier but instead I would drive to the Dairy Queen drive thru.

Then I'd feel like crap for my addiction to sugar and ice cream. This was long before I learned about the harm caused by dairy products. Fast forward to today. If you offered me a million dollars to hit that drive thru I'd say no.

What changed? My mindset. In the years since my food addiction days I changed my mindset around food, my body and what's really important to me. The techniques I used to get there are the same techniques that can help you get unstuck.

Awareness

Before you can transform anything you have to become aware. What's bothering you about your current state? How is it impacting your life? How is it making you feel?

It's very easy to be on auto pilot in life. In fact we're encouraged to be on auto pilot. That keeps things at the status quo. But when you start to think about what your real wants and desires are, you may find yourself wanting...

Four Ways to Banish Stress

In this, the strangest year ever I have many conversations with friends and colleagues about stress.

Many people are feeling it, understandably so. However if being stressed out fixed anything I'd tell you to load up on it. Stress fixes nothing, and instead robs you having some joy in your life. 

There are many things you can do to combat stress but in this week's blog I want to share some of the top ways (in my opinion) to bring down your stress levels. While a stress response is normal to life's challenges, most people live in a constant stress state that is damaging to their long term health. 

There are some simple and practical ways to bring your stress levels under control.

1) Sleep

Two Secrets to Flowing Through Grief

Anyone else feeling like 2020 can go away?

Is it just me? Didn't think so. 

This past Saturday my cat of 11 years went out to explore and so far she hasn't come home. She's an indoor/outdoor cat and goes out almost daily to check out where the wild things are. But she always comes home. Except this time she hasn't come back (so far). 

It's really upset me. I am in tears. I miss having her around and know her daily routine as well as I know my own. I love my companion animals as I love any person in my life. I felt waves of grief and overwhelm come over me. The worst part of her being gone is not knowing what happened to her, if she's okay and if she'll ever come back. As much as my heart hurts for her, I'm reminded once again about how impermanent life is. That no one we love belongs to us. We're always in flux.
