Do you know that we don’t know how to take it easy? In our wired society of being connected via our cell phones, Wi-Fi, email and internet; we have forgotten the importance of just “being”. There is this urge to “do” constantly to the point that we feel lost if we are not doing something.
Sex and money cause the most overall stress in relationships. This week’s blog is going to cover some basics about money and relationship and what you can do to manage your stress about it! 1) Money makes you more of who you are: meaning, whatever your money issues or beliefs are, you bring them with you into your relationships. It’s almost always the case that whatever values and beliefs you have about money, you will die with—unless you’re willing to do the work and get to the root of them and make some changes!
Despite the occasional temporary setback, my life is good, and I’m grateful. It wasn’t always that way, however. At 18, just after I left for college, I was essentially orphaned, and have had to go from no education or support to finding a purpose, supporting myself through a PhD, and developing four businesses to do that. I also recovered from an abusive marriage, and now have been happily married for 23 years, and in successful private practice since 1978. Before I could succeed, I needed to learn to support myself emotionally as well as financially.
How can I feel better about my body, even though I’m not yet at my goal weight? By Joy Bufalini Certified Body Breakthrough Coach http://thinwithin.com/joy What are your thoughts on being grateful for you body as it is RIGHT NOW? It probably seems easy to imagine being grateful if you had the body like "so and so" or you weighed "x" amount. But appreciating even those problem areas of your body – your legs, your stomach, your arms? How is that possible?
Starve yourself or spend hours in the gym? What’s a girl to do to have a healthy, sexy body? You can argue whether diet or exercise is more effective in your weight loss. Fact is that both matter. You need both. Just like you need all the ingredients to bake up a recipe. Leave something out and it's not going to taste right. To promote successful weight loss you also need all the pieces to mix together. Diet and exercise do not work alone.
In the 1700s the prominent belief was that people would have to be threatened and punished to do good deeds for one another. The common saying was that people had to “be threatened with hell, and promised heaven” in order to be positive players in society. Along came Frances Hutcheson, philosopher and teacher, who noticed that people are at their happiest when they are helping another human being. It was recognized that stepping outside of oneself and not being self-absorbed lead to the happiest of times.
You've read all the articles, watched all the videos, heard all the love songs and listened to all the webinars. You've racked your brain or searched on google for your favorite love quote from Shakespeare and you're still stuck on what to give to Mr Wonderful or even Mr Potentially Wonderful for Valentine's Day.
It always seems like one person wants their partner to have the ability to read their mind. This is what they tell me in my office : "He should KNOW what I like/want/need without me having to tell him. If I have to tell him what I want, well, then it doesn't mean as much when he gives it to me." The funny thing is that some couples seem to be very good at mind reading. But are they really?
The Morning After For many of my readers today is the Morning After Christmas. The day when all the hoopla that has been the focus of attention is over. There is often a mixed feeling of relief and let down coming together all at once. Some cultures have addressed this issue by making a special Holiday to finish off the festivities. Boxing Day is the one I am familiar with, having been a part of an Irish family for many years in my first marriage.
Will this New Year be just like the others? Every New Year we make the same resolutions and don’t stick to them. It’s not necessarily because we don’t have the discipline. It’s probably because these New Year’s resolutions are based on us believing that we are just not good enough as we are. Think about it: if you were that comfortable with who you were and wanted to make certain changes to your body, wouldn’t you be better able to fulfill these resolutions?
Great dress? Check. Wonderful New Year's Eve gathering to attend? Check. Hot guy on your arm? Check. Champagne for the toast? Check. New Year's resolutions created and posted on the fridge, laying on your nightstand or inside of your iPhone? Check. Then you are all set to ring in 2012, right? Hmm...not so much.
