Giving “Thanks” Is Healthy

It’s that time of year again when family and friends gather to celebrate and give “Thanks” for their blessings in life.

I understand that not all holidays are easy for some of us. The festivities of the season can trigger memories that can make us feel melancholy and reflect back on a time when life may have been very different.

But consider this – If we can manage to adopt an attitude of gratitude and see things with a grateful heart, there’s something very beneficial we can experience.

Forbes magazine reports that it has been scientifically proven that giving thanks can improve your physical well-being. According to the source, a 2012 study showed that “grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and they report feeling healthier than other people.”

Also, one of the unexpected outcomes of expressing gratitude is that it boosts personal happiness.

This Thanksgiving, no matter what your circumstances, I wish you the blessings of an open heart to give thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving!

HOW TO TRUST IN THE MIDST OF TRANSITION

We hear it all the time – “Just Let Go Man!  Let It Go”!
But for the person who is holding on for dear life, well that’s another story – because it seems impossible to do.
When we hold on for too long, sub-consciously we are saying, ‘I have a deep belief about something and I’m not letting go until, well, until it becomes the truth or something changes my mind.’
The problem is in the midst of this “bargaining” phase, we become stuck and do not allow life to carry us to new places.  Instead we push life into our own making and can miss many opportunities.
So, what is the secret to letting go?
The secret to letting go is believing that you will be okay once you do.  I understand this is easier said than done. But it’s the truth.
I’m sure it would. I say this with confidence because I am living it.  In my upcoming tel-class I will be sharing with you how I got through the most difficult of times and how you can too.  I will also be inviting you to a workshop that I am hosting in January of 2018.  My goal is to prepare you now so you can schedule your plans accordingly to attend this ground-breaking event.
Please join me in this upcoming tel-class to learn more!

THE SECRET TO LETTING GO (WHEN YOU’RE HOLDING ON TOO TIGHT)

THE SECRET TO LETTING GO (When You’re Holding On Too Tight)

It’s been said that, “nothing lasts forever.”  Perhaps that’s why we desperately hold on so tight.

We know there is a cycle to life; that our youth vanishes, our children grow up, our parents age, and one day we will pass on.  Yet, we try to hold on even tighter.

Of course, the more we hold on, the more pain we feel as things fade, disappear, and die around us. And sometimes the tighter our grasp, the more these things happen.

Think about this in the context of a relationship.  Imagine someone who is exceptionally clingy. They are so preoccupied with all the terrible things they think can go wrong, that they miss the opportunity to fully love.  Eventually, the relationship has no recourse but to end.

What about the person who holds on for dear life to their physical things? Instead of enjoying and making use of what they already have, they are too busy acquiring more out of fear something will happen to their existing stuff.  Control now replaces the caring of their things.

If we probe further, there is usually a story that is deeply connected to why we insist on holding on so tight.  A story, no doubt, that could benefit from healing.
The secret to letting go is believing that you will be okay once you do.  I understand this is easier said than done. But it’s the truth.
If you knew for certain that all would be okay if you let go, wouldn’t it make a huge difference in your life?  I’m sure it would.   I say this with confidence because I am living it.
In my upcoming tel-class I will be sharing with you how I got through the most difficult of times and how you can too.
I will also be inviting you to a workshop that I am hosting in January of 2018.  My goal is to prepare you now so you can schedule your plans accordingly to attend this ground-breaking event.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CLUTTER

For over 20 years, I have been speaking on the subject matter of organizing.  Although the topic of wellness is now in the forefront, I still circle back around to the benefits of living an organized lifestyle.  Yet, it doesn’t seem to matter where I speak, who is in the audience, or how I broach the subject matter, there is always something heavy on people’s minds.

That heaviness I believe derives from the perplexity of clutter.  Most people are constantly battling the war on clutter without success.  This leaves them feeling defeated, overwhelmed and downright exhausted.  It begs the question, over and over, What’s the secret to curing clutter?
 
Take yesterday for example.  I was speaking at the Health Expo in New York and  people wanted to know the answers to many of these questions:
  
How do I get a handle on my stuff?  
How can I clear out my clutter for good?
Why does my clutter come back?
Why does my clutter get the best of me?
 
So I told them the truth about clutter.  Before I explained what that truth was, I said that most people probably have heard it before and others may not  like what they are about to hear. But that doesn’t  mean it’s not the truth.
You see, there really is a way to curing clutter.  But it’s not what most people think.
The reality is, that most of us go outside ourselves to seek the answers to our questions.  We have a difficult time believing that the power we need to be successful is within us. So we blame outside circumstances on our inability to win the battle and continually look for the secret elixir that is going to cure the clutter.
The truth is …  the cure for your clutter is well within our grasp.
It all starts by first acknowledging that clutter is ruling our life.  And if we want the chaos of clutter to stop, we must see this as something that is very important in our life. When something is truly important, it ranks as a high priority for us to take action.  That action then requires follow-through until the completion stage.
The problem is, however, that most people find this extremely difficult to do.  They lack the follow-up skills that are necessary.  The good news is, just like organizing, it is a skill set that can be learned.  But again, just like organizing, in order to be successful, you need to have SUPPORT.
My Clutter Coaching Program provides you with a bullet-proof plan of action and a model that will keep you motivated, committed and accountable to curing your clutter.
If you are struggling with clutter and you are at a point in your life where you can honestly say that you are ready to win the war by making it your number one PRIORITY, then I would like to hear from you.
Just hit “Reply” to this email and tell me why you feel you are ready.  Include your phone number and I will reach out to you for a complimentary Discovery Session.    You have nothing to lose but your clutter.

I hope to hear from you soon!
