This week our challenge seems easy enough, however, sometimes we don’t know when or how to “let it go”… However, once we do, we find release, relief and often times the missing peace we have been craving. One way we can move from stressed to blessed is by letting go what we no longer need or believe to be true. Picture yours elf holding a glass of water in the air. Now what if I asked you to hold … [Read more...] about Week 6 ~ Connect by letting it go
Reach out and TOUCH… This week your challenge is to connect via TOUCH. This can be accomplished in many ways. Recently when dealing with a client who suffers from terrible anxiety I found this “trick” that was suggested to help ground you and shake you out of an anxious moment. The tip said you should find 5 things you can see, 4 things you can TOUCH, 3 things you can hear, 2 … [Read more...] about Week 5 ~ Connect via TOUCH
This week your challenge is to disconnect! What an odd way to get connected right? Well, as many of you know, last year my family had created a cool family ritual we called DETOX TUESDAYS.

This week our challenge is to shut it all down and LISTEN. This week I challenge you to … [Read more...] about Week 3 ~ Connect through listening
Now that we are on our way to 15 weeks of feeling blessed (not stressed) I can reveal our theme. This year’s theme is “CONNECT”. Even though we are the most connected social community in history, we still find ourselves feeling disconnected, stressed out and sometimes all alone. Which is why I felt motivated to introduce the theme of CONNECTing. Over the next 14 weeks I hope to … [Read more...] about Week 2 ~ Connecting through Sight
WEEK 1: Reconnecting to what you have. I always start week one the same…. WHAT ARE YOU GRATEFUL FOR? I once read that if you write down 5 things you are grateful for every day, in 2 months your life will be completely changed! Really??? Well then, I guess this is the perfect way to begin our first challenge. If we operate out of abundance and gratitude, life will continue to … [Read more...] about 2015 – 15 Week Challenge From Stressed to Blessed – Week 1
Last week the kids started back to school! A brand new school year! Lots of possibilities. Lots of hopes. Lots of excitement. It got me thinking about the parallels of New Years Eve and School Years Eve. New Years resolutions and School Years resolutions. If you have read my earlier winter blogs, you know that I am ANTI new years resolutions in January. It’s cold. I’m tired. My house is … [Read more...] about Forget new year resolutions…Time for school year resolutions!
