At the start of the New Year, we often make goals about our career, health, or relationships. Unfortunately by the end of January, too many of us give up on those goals. Not because we’re lazy or we didn’t really want the things, it’s because we don’t believe we can actually have them.
We often blame it on not enough time or discipline, when in reality it’s neither of these things. The truth is we don’t actually believe we can create what we want.
It’s okay not to believe in yourself (at least some of the time).
I know we hear a [...]
I spent a lot of time in the last two years wishing my life could go back to normal. Some days I longed for normal so badly that it made me cry. It wasn’t that I was just in pain from being injured in an accident; it was the frustration that I could no longer do some of the things that were normal to me.
In my career as a mind-body coach I watch people long for normal all the time. Many of my current clients suffer from IBS or digestive disorders. They talk often about wanting a normal life. [...]
Happy almost end of summer In the past the end of summer was very sad for me because it felt like an ending. This summer feels very different to me because it’s like a whole new beginning.
As many of you know, the last two years have been quite difficult for me. But they led to great things like a greater focus on health and wellness in my business and learning how to use my emotions in ways that can benefit my life in positive ways.
They’ve also led to great people and places, and experiences that [...]
Resistance isn’t always bad, in fact it can teach us crucial things about what isn’t working for us. However, when it gets in the way of allowing us to accept and move forward, it needs to be released.
This came to me when I purposely avoided creating intentions and decided to let the first few weeks of January sink in and let the intentions form themselves. Then when the time was right I decided I was going to create my intention in the form of a word this year and that word is: release.
When it came to me it seemed [...]
I am well.
I heard this from Wayne Dwyer at 3 am on a night when I had turned on the TV because sleep just wasn’t happening.
Three simple words yet so powerful.
For people struggling with IBS the words “ I am well” don’t often cross your mind. But they should.
You see if you focus on “I am well” you take your attention off what is wrong with you.
Simple yet so hard.
Because were so used to seeing what’s wrong with our body and trying to fix it.
And no matter how hard we try we can’t control our body.
But we can control [...]
I’ve been there too. I spent many years living with IBS and I know how it can impact all parts of your life from career to relationships. I also know how the stress around IBS symptoms can rule your life. It’s understandable… it’s hard to try new things when you are fearful about having a flare-up. But you don’t have to limit your life, there is something you can do about it.
In my free e-book, “IBS Manifesto: Creating Less Stress and More Freedom While Living With IBS “, I discuss 5 tools to help you start living a more [...]
