We’re Destructible & Replaceable

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

I wanted to share this article because I can really understand how doing business can get in the way of health. I’ve felt some of what Mr. Wadhwa describes in this article. It is so easy to feel that you must go faster and faster and work harder and harder to get ahead. It’s also easy to think that there is a sense of urgency in everything we do. What happens when we realize that we are not  indestructible and that we can be replaced?

Resolutions to Reflect on the Good You Already Do

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

It’s a new year and with it are the resolutions to try harder  or do something more or better than we did last year.

What if we don’t stop striving for improvement but in addition give ourselves a break by reflecting on what we already do well.

Just think of the relief in knowing that you’re already doing a good job. Sure there’s always room for improvement but there is already plenty of emphasis put on doing more better faster.

Why not have resolutions more in line with breathe easier live calmer and you’re already doing a heck of a job?

Give yourself a break. Take time for you.

The time we take for ourselves and our families are the gifts we get in life. These moments are the best that life has to offer.

Happy New Year!

When You Feel You Can’t Take it Anymore…

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Anxiety and stress definitely can take a toll on us.

We can get to a point where we feel we absolutely CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE and as long as we’ve got a plan we don’t have to.

But what if you don’t have a plan and you truly can’t take it anymore?

You’ve got to put a plan in place so you know where you’re aiming–you’ve got a target.

Say you can’t take your job any more. More than anything you want to walk through the door and announce to the boss and anyone else within earshot–I QUIT!

Well, hold on.

Take steps to create an action plan so  you can say I quit without shouting  because you know what your next step will be.

Do some research.

Make phone calls, set up informational interviews, get a job coach, seek counseling. Go to your local state employment office where there are resources to help you. Go to your local community college and speak with an adviser. Taking one simple action will lead you to another–don’t panic, set a pace.

If it’s a relationship–

Seek help and guidance

Don’t go it alone

If you’re in danger–call a local shelter, social service agency, the police if needed or the National Domestic Violence Hotline 1.800.799.SAFE

Make life work for you by taking reasonable action steps. No job, relationship,  living situation, or other circumstance is worth sticking with if you’re miserable and/or not safe.

Take actions that will work for you given your own unique set of circumstances.

Stress–A Silent Killer?

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Do you believe stress is a silent killer?

I sure do.

I think most of us try to cover up the fact that we’re stressed at all which usually makes it worse.

I found this article and would like to share it. Maybe it will eliminate some stress–at least for the time it takes to read it.
