Too Much Stress!

August 7, 2019

This was a sad weekend. After hearing the horrific news about the shooting in El Paso, I also got a few calls from friends who were feeling anxiety as well as a client who is struggling from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

It seemed where ever I turned someone was experiencing some sort of distress. It is estimated that 1/3 of the children today suffer from some sort of anxiety disorder. That means that they have a hard time regulating their emotions. What is driving their behaviors?

I can remember when I was around 9 years old and in the 4th grade, I forgot my homework and the teacher made me go sit in the back of a 3rd grade class to teach me a lesson. Well needless to say I was humiliated, stressed and felt completely horrible. I balled my eyes out and was afraid to tell my parents about this, so I just kept it to myself. I became fearful of many things after that. These are some of the things that can cause anxiety in children.

Children will develop all sorts of disorders from events where they don’t feel safe and protected. Besides the children today are more disconnected from nature. The internet and social media can create social isolation from bullying. Lack of exercise and movement as well as the diets and environmental factors  are also causing psychological disturbances within children. Parents are stressed out too,having to juggle so many things on their plate.  And children as well as adults are being bombarded with way to much stimulation.

So what can you do? Go outside, connect with nature, play, communicate in a loving way. Shut off the TV or computer, put down your phones and move, dance or do some form of physical activity. Eat more fruits and vegetables and get rid of the proceeded foods. Engage in more social activities.

There are many natural approaches to anxiety rather than medication. I know I found them, and I know you can too.

Our Intention Creates Our Reality

March 16, 2016

intentionWe are all powerful creators and when we set our intention on what we want to create we can manifest that desire. Yesterday, I was on a plane flying home from California and I had such an enjoyable conversation with the person sitting next to me. We made a real connection. My intention before boarding the plane was to sit next to someone who was open for conversation and friendly. Well, I definitely got what I asked for. It was a small intention, however if it turned out that the person was not friendly, well it would have been a whole other experience. Then again, I wanted to set another intention for my train ride home from the airport.I wanted to met a new person and share our contact information. You know what? Presto, it happened. I met a beautiful woman from Panama who was looking for help getting on the correct train and was a little afraid of asking anyone. She approached me, and soon we were talking and sharing things about our family, country and other things. We exchanged contact information too! Our intentions create our reality. What intention do you have for your day? Before getting out of bed, declare that this will be a good day and wonderful things are coming your way. Then go about your day and notice what happens. Set the intention before you do anything and marvelous things await you…
