Mother’s Day – once a year? Hell No! It should be every week!

Taking just a couple of hours each week for yourself could make you much healthier, happier and able to love those around you even more…

The one thing I see in my clinic every day – more than anything else – is stressed-out women. They are constantly struggling to manage their families, work, relationships, finances, and homes. I feel for them because this stress is really affecting their health – and their relationships – and their own happiness and joy. They tell me that they rush to get up in the morning to get the kids ready, then rush them off to school, then rush off to work, and rush through their day only to return home to rush to prepare dinner, clean the house and get the children ready for bed. They collapse, exhausted at the end of the day – only to repeat the same process – tomorrow, and the next day, and the one after that…

Do you know how they feel? Perhaps you know exactly how they feel. If so, you’re the person I want to talk to today because I think that I can help you. Read more

Here are my thoughts and insights on this topic…

Most busy women don’t take care of themselves in as much as they take care of others…

Not a day goes by where I don’t find myself asking clients “So how are you taking care of yourself during this time? What are you doing to support yourself?” Sometimes I get a blank stare, sometimes a confused look paired with “what do you mean?” Other times I get “I don’t have time for me.” It is rare that the response is “Well, I set aside time every day to make sure that my needs are meet, I ensure that I do things that I Read more
