Working parents can enjoy stress relief

Working parents can enjoy stress relief so that
they can focus for success.
Maryanne took the summer off to get away from practicing the basics of stress relief. The art of enjoying stress relief requires effort and dedication.

Let me explain.

Maryanne used to attend regular weekly classes and practices the basics of meditation. During the summer however, Maryanne did not attend classes for over 3 months. She thought that she could take a holiday from classes (meditation classes) without any consequences because Maryanne was having fun doing “what she wanted to do.”

Consequence of not practising

3 months later Maryanne discovered that she was very tired, had 2 sinus infections as well as a cold and to top it off, her back “went out.” She was also experiencing physical pain and felt as though she was stuck.

Practising Again

After returning to class for 1 week Maryanne realized that she spent very little time doing the basic (practicing regular meditation) and paid the dangerous penalty of excruciating pain and discomfort.

Confession

Maryanne confessed that she had made all kinds of excuses for not being at class and also became aware that it is time to stop making excuses and get on with enjoying her life.


So what is the moral of the story?
Stress relief is a part of living and you cannot take a “holiday” from living.

Meditation and stress relief

Mary is a newbie to meditation and stress relief. Mary was listening to her meditation CD but did not understand that she was experiencing stress relief.

Let me explain.

While Mary was listening to her Meditation CD she kept on falling in and out of sleep. However, when Mary finished listening to the CD she was full of energy. She was so full of energy she could not sleep.

When you slow down, take a break and breathe, you body will do whatever it needs to do to heal itself.

So when you start to meditate whether you fall asleep, sleep and snore or fall in and out of sleep, this is just a message telling you what you body needs at that moment.

So what is the moral of the story?

Your body needs to take a break so that you can stop and recharge your energy and have more time to enjoy with your family.

Busy Business people can get more done through better communication

Busy Business people can get more done through better communication and have more fun as a result.

Let me explain.

Today I visited the hospital to teach my weekly Relaxation at the bedside for Heart, Stroke and Cancer patients. I met Harry. Harry’s Mom did not speak English so I needed Harry as an interpreter.

It was more practical for me to teach Harry the relaxation process so that he could in turn teach his mom.

Wait! There is a problem.

Harry was sitting in a chair hands tightly folded. His feet were planted firmly to the ground, solid as a rock, close to each other at a 90 degree angle and his face was tense like a pain in the neck. I asked Harry if it were better for me to teach him the relaxation process so that he could teach his mom.

Harry agreed and I proceeded to take him through the Relaxation process. You guessed it. Harry was tense like a fish out of water and unable to do the exercise.

I casually continued to talk to Harry (about all the wonderful things he enjoyed doing with his mom) and eventually like a beautiful flower within 5 minutes, Harry’s hands quietly unfolded and his legs shifted gently from a 90 degree to a 45 degree angle and Harry smiled from ear to ear. Harry was so tense and the idea of experiencing relaxation within 5 minutes seemed impossibility.

Harry thanked me for being patient with him so that he could be more patient with himself and his mom.

Lessons about Communication The next time you are communicating with someone and you don’t seem to be making process, stop and shift into a casual, positive conversation (like the weather) to help them lose their tense perspective.This good deed, if practiced regularly will allow you to become a better communicator. Taking this moment (small chat) will stop you from forcing things to happen because no one is responsive in a tense state of mind.

So what is the moral of the story?

When you learn to relax and focus on getting other people to “unfold their hands” then you will begin to touch people in amazing ways and feel the joy of bringing a smile to an unhappy face.

Stress relief strategies for ending a relationship

Stress relief strategies for ending a relationship can allow you to you
to focus for success.
Let me explain

Mary experienced stress relief when she ended her relationship with her fiancé. She felt free of the demands of contributing to making the relationship a success. However, materially Mary was holding on to an asset although she said she wanted out and her request was accepted.

Mary was still clinging to what she thought her fiancé owed her. If you claim you are finished with a situation you need to let it go. You may not want to let go because you have been accustomed to putting conditions on people and situations. (I will only do this for you if you do this for me.)

Letting go unconditionally

However you need to let go unconditionally. What this means is that you give what you give without any strings attached. You see, in relationships this is easier said than done. When you end a relationship your emotions are usually out of whack because you are angry.

When I got divorce I was angry for many reasons. I was happy the relationship ended but I was still angry. I was angry at myself for spending so many years satisfying my family and neglecting myself. So my challenge was that I had put too many conditions on myself.

I was not unconditional with myself. Only through therapy and having a private practice have I understood what it feels like to be unconditional.

So what is the moral of the story?

Letting go takes time and patience. Letting go unconditionally allows you to open up your heart so that you can forgive and accept past circumstances and behaviors as life lessons.

Working Moms and Stay at home Moms can easily stay focused and avoid stress

Working Moms and Stay at home Moms can easily stay focused and avoid stress so that they focus for success. Do you easily lose Focus?

Yes you can quickly lose focus and avoid the state of the experience of stress relief.

Let me explain.

Joan was enjoying a marvelous day of being in the moment by herself. The phone rang, Joan answered the phone, and it was her friend Sue. Joan quickly discovers that Sue was all stressed out. Joan instantly became stress out as well.

Wait there is more.

Joan believes that she should focus on solving other people’s problems. So on the phone she immediately took over shifting from her state of incredible stress relief to a state of depression (quickly trying to solve a problem she knows nothing about) in order to solve Sue’s problem.

As working moms or stay at home moms you are responsible for your actions.Your actions can create the havoc of stress or the serenity of peace and tranquility.

It is not your responsibility

You need to understand that people create stress through their actions and it is not your responsibility to rescue them.

Consequence of staying focused

Allowing your friends or love ones to make mistakes helps them to learn their life lessons. If however you constantly smoother your friends and love ones by providing solutions to all of their problems then it is like putting a candle snuffer over a lit candle.

Guilty of stopping growth and avoiding stress relief

You are unknowingly depriving you friends and love ones of the joys of living, putting out their light of growth, stress relief and life lessons. Life lessons which are needed to become the backbone for their spiritual growth.

So what is the moral of the story?

Staying focused allows you to maintain your b>balance and avoid the trap of preventing your friends and love ones from making mistakes and learning their life lessons.

Stress Relief and Weight loss

Mary was struggling with stress relief and weight loss problem for a long time.

Let me explain

Mary craved other people’s opinion to make her feel good and experience stress relief. She went to the hair dresser and got her hair done in an amazing style. She really felt she could relax and focus after leaving the hairdresser. However if no one noticed her hair style or paid her a compliment she would go into a depressed state because  she felt no one cared to noticed. This behavior made Mary gain weight. She actually started binging on chocolate and putting on weight.
I introduce Mary to a meditation which allowed her to see herself stunningly attractive having lost weight.
 

You see Mary had never considered herself beautiful before. After Mary had given herself incredible compliments in the meditation she remembered what it felt like to lose weight and enjoy stress relief.

When she understood and was given permission to find a quiet place of relaxation (to imagine herself looking really sexy at her ideal weight) and the ability to hear the wonderful compliments she gave herself, she experienced how much energy and self confidence she now has as she did this exercises more often.

This little exercise allowed Mary to regain her self confidence and eliminate her need for other people’s opinion to make her feel good.

This exercise works well if you habitually need other people to tell you how well you look.

So what is the moral of the story?

If you are not aware of your beauty within then you will need other people to make you feel good about yourself.

6 (six) step action plan to focus for success and find more time

The 6 (Six) step action plan to focus for success and find more time is
very simple if you follow all the steps. In my private practice most
people tend to ignore step #6.

Let me explain.

Mary wanted to set goals to begin the New Year and enjoy
stress relief. In order for your plan to be successful there
are 5 steps you need to take.

Your plan must be SMARTV;

1. Specific 2. Measurable3. Achievable

4. Realistic5. Timed

6. Visualized.

Mary’s goal was to make $60,000.00.

1. Specific – You need to know specifically how you are going to make
that money. What profession or activity are you involved in?

2. Measurable – Your goal is $60,000.00, so how much do you have to
make per month? $60,000.00 divided by 12 = $5000.00. Per month.

Per Week

How much do you have to make per week to achieve your goal $ 5000.00
divided by 4 =$1250 per week?

Per Day

How much do you have to make per day (excluding weekend) to achieve your
goal is $1250 divided by 5 = $250.00 per day?

3. Achievable - In your profession or activity is it realistic for
you to make $1250.00 per week or $250.00 per day of a 5 day week?

If your weekly or daily numbers are unrealistic you will have to reconsider
your overall goal because they are not realistic.

4. Realistic – A University education can take 2 to 4 years to complete.
If your vocation requires that you complete your program before you enter your
profession, then it would be unrealistic to think you can start you internship
within your first year of studies if you’re are required
to complete your university education first.

5. Timed – Your goal must also be achievable in a certain
time frame. You may start with a year but may discover that because
it is unrealistic you need to change your time to 1 1/2 or 2 years to make your
goal measurable and achievable.

6. Visualized – Lastly you need to visualize yourself actually
accomplishing you goal. It is very important that this visualization be
done with feeling. You have to experience the feeling of accomplishment, what
does that looks like? Your positive self talk rather than negative self talk is also necessary.

This visualization needs be done as soon as you have decided on your
goal which is specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed.
Visualization is often overlooked but when incorporated into your
goal setting process it is like the icing on the cake or the cement
that holds the plan together.

You also need to understand that there will always be people who will
tell you it is impossible to achieve your goal. So in 2007 surround yourself
with positive people who encourage to achieve your goals.
