You Mean I’m Learning Resilience Again?

No matter your particular style, we all reveal patterns under stress. In this blog I’ll talk about ways to feel more resilient and create more resourcefulness in your stressful situation—whatever that situation may be.

Your style under stress may be to go numb; to be unrelenting in your pursuit of “the goal” and therefore never take a break; to do things in spurts; to get 75% of the job done and […]

Courage

This week, as I was walking into the Denver Health Hospital to see a patient, I noticed the most heart-warming phenomenon: real-life examples of courage and support. I saw people walking ever so slowly, hand in hand, as they made their way to the entrance of the hospital. An adult woman and what appeared to be her mother. A mother and her adolescent son. There were sweet exchanges of straightening […]

The Benefits of Slowing Down

I was a young parent who felt like she was rushing through life. I wanted to get things done and feel productive. At the time, I had no concept of the potential benefits of slowing down.

Sometimes I wonder if I didn’t receive some kind of internal payoff or validation for my level of productivity. I could point to lots of reasons or stories to explain why I might have become […]

Be You!

When It’s Best to Simply Be You!

I am at the Steam Espresso Coffee Bar to do some writing. I sit down with my tea and cake and as I settle into my writing space, I look up and notice that all the other singletons in the back room of the coffee shop are facing me.

Another way of saying this is that I was facing what appeared the “wrong direction.” I […]

What is your Parachute?

When you’ve run through your life too hard, what is the warning sign you listen to that tells you it’s time to decelerate? What is the rip cord that signals your parachute to open, enabling you to slow down?

I recently noticed that my elbows and hands were chronically tight and manifesting a variety of symptoms. Initially, because I was so busy, I did the bare minimum to manage the ailments. […]

Making a Decision

Making a decision is easy and efficient for some people; while for others it is fraught with self-doubt and second guessing. What is your decision making style? Are you able to trust yourself at times like these?

To those who struggle with making decisions, thoughts of self-doubt may sound like “I’m sick to my stomach thinking about this,” “I’m scared to death I will make the wrong decision,” “What if this is […]

Parenthood and Self-Care

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with a group called The Mothers of Boys in Denver. It is a wonderful organization that brings mothers together who have three or more boys and no girls. They help, support and educate mothers about boys and their unique mothering challenge. Given that in this family setting, the mother is the only female in the entire household, it makes her […]

Moving from Sickness to Health

The key to true healing is not necessarily more medicine or more procedures, but the changes people make in their lives…. To move from sickness to health, a patient has to come to an awareness that the ability to heal lies within, that sometimes illness is a wake-up call for change.

Panic Attacks – The Earthquake and Its Aftershocks

Panic attacks are a constellation of symptoms that are the body’s response to a single overwhelming stress-filled situation. While the effects of stressful events can build up to a panic attack, sometimes it is a single event that finally has the body reaching a breaking point. Knowing your trigger is the key to overcoming panic attacks.

A full-blown panic attack includes a combination of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath or hyperventilation
  • Heart […]
