Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Stress Less. Charge Your Life   Leave a comment

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” George Bernard Shaw

Reducing your stress has the implications of strengthening your immune system and lowering your cortisol levels, which in turn reduces inflammation and improves your overall health.

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather these last few days and have been coloring in one of the coloring books I purchased when I was in Barcelona for a week’s vacation last November. I flipped through the pages, found a design I liked by Joan Fabre’ I Oliver, and have been keeping the book on my living room counter, open to the page I’m coloring, to give me easy access. Each time I walk by, I take a peek, and when I feel inspired, stop for a minute or two or five and color another piece. I just finished coloring in the sides with Faber Castell’s Middle Purple Pink! When I finished the section, I stood for a moment and noticed how light, calm and healthy I felt.

We often think of reducing stress as a stressful thing to do – and something we have to work at. But what if we had a paradigm shift and saw stress as an opportunity to be more playful?

THIS WEEK’S TNT

Do something every day that makes you smile,  lights you up and brings a sense of joy and playfulness.

Then stop and notice how good you feel and let the positive sensations soak in.

Doing so on a regular basis will reduce your stress and improve your sense of happiness.

With love,

Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Just Say “No”   Leave a comment

“Although it may feel uncomfortable to think about saying no, it’s important to remember that each time you say yes to someone, or something else, you say no to you and your priorities.” – Oprah Winfrey

We want to be kind. We want to be loved. We want to give because it feels good, and we want to be generous with our gifts, talents, abilities and time. But how often do we say “yes” to requests from friends, colleagues, family members, and others, when we know, within our heart of hearts, that it means taking time away from caring for ourselves?

Saying “no” can conjure up feelings of guilt and shame, because we may think it’s self-centered, and be afraid that others may judge us. But people learn how to treat us by how we treat ourselves.

Giving and receiving is an art of balance. But how can we achieve it? Change begins with awareness. Are you aware of how often you say “yes” when you would rather say “no?” The answer may surprise you!

THIS WEEK’S TNT

This week, make not of how many times you say “yes,” when you would rather say “no.”

Keep a record in a small notebook or make a list on your phone.

Notice how you feel when you say “yes” to something you don’t want to do.

Do you feel resentful, angry, frustrated, stressed, or exhausted?

Your body is giving you clues!

At the end of the week, add up the number of entries in your notebook.

Then,  make a list of five things you would like to say “no” to.

Start with something small.

You don’t need to explain or justify yourself.

Don’t know what to say?

Here’s a rule of thumb you can follow:

Say what you mean. Mean what you say. But don’t say it mean.

Learning to say “no” takes practice. But you can learn how to say it.

The more you practice, the easier it will become.

You will feel better, and while some relationships may fall away, others will deepen and grow.

As always, I would love to hear your comments about how this week’s TNT worked for you and what it is you discovered.

With love, Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Adjust Your Sails   Leave a comment

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean

Change can be scary, and fear of the unknown can keep us stuck in our tracks. To the outside world we may appear to be happy and comfortable. But are we?

As you many of you know, I made a major change in my life earlier this year when I relocated to Trieste, Italy. Sure, I had fear, anxiety and doubts. Who wouldn’t? After all, I was moving away from friends and family and creating a total life overhaul. It took two years to get here, but one day, one step at a time, I made it. And so can you. Your dreams may be different than mine – perhaps you would like to learn a new skill, take an art or dance class, change jobs, begin or end a relationship or pursue any number of goals that you have put on the back burner.

Our brains are hardwired to think the worst. It’s a survival mechanism inherited from our ancestors and designed to keep us alive when lions, tigers and dinosaurs threatened our very existence. Despite the news, which focuses on sensationalism and negativity, statistics show that the world is safer today than it was in the past, yet we are conditioned to think the opposite.***

So what to do? And how do you adjust your sails to reach your desired destination when fear is keeping you anchored to your comfort zone? Is the change you would like to make really as threatening as it seems? To whom or what are you listening to? The ancient part of your brain or your inner wisdom, which is always for your greater good and happiness?

THIS WEEK’S TNT

Set aside some quiet time. Have paper and pen handy. Take a few deep breaths and answer the following questions:

What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but were afraid of doing?

What’s the worst that could happen if you do it?

What’s holding you back?

Are the obstacles that are holding you back real, or thoughts you’ve come to believe are true?

What’s one thing you can do to move forward?

Are you ready to do it?

What’s one action you can take this week to pursue it?

As always, I would love to hear your comments.

With love, Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) More Will Be Revealed   Leave a comment

Dear Friends,

I began writing “this week’s” blog last week. Like many of you, my emotions have been up and down after last Tuesday’s election. After a tumultuous campaign season, although it’s only been a week since the election, it feels more like years.

I voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary.  Perhaps you did, as well, or were a Hillary or Trump supporter.  Regardless of who we voted for, one thing is certain – we share a common goal – our desire for love, contentment and happiness is universal.

I am dismayed by the violence of protestors – whether they be for or against Donald Trump. The emotions we are experiencing – on all sides – must be channeled constructively for true and lasting change.

As I reflect on the conflict here, at home, and around the world, I can’t help but think of our brains’ primitive survival mechanism to fight or flee: an automatic response that fuels conflict and war – both interpersonal and global, when we perceive a threat. When we act on automatic pilot, we forget that we have a choice for how we respond – but it takes  but it takes discipline and effort. (Think of the last time you reacted to something a loved one said? It’s easy to let ourselves get triggered.)

So with emotions flying high, how do we reconnect – person to person – and find our common ground? How do we listen, with respect and understanding, to what our brothers and sisters are saying without getting lost in a web of fear and hate? Communication is our greatest ally, when we allow ourselves to listen to what one another is saying – underneath the rhetoric.

What goes up must come down. Change is a never ending cycle. Call me naive, but what we perceive as the worst-case scenario now, can bring deep healing and change in the future. As spiritual leaders have told us throughout the centuries, change begins within ourselves. We are not powerless, but how we use our power is essential for the good of all concerned.

Who do we wish to be in the midst of our current political climate, knowing that the energy we put out has an effect on ourselves and the world at large? Our thoughts, behaviors and emotions contribute to love or fear. What do we wish to create in spite of what others are doing?

As Martin Luther King Jr. so graciously wrote in his book Strength To Love in 1963 applies just as much, if not more, now:

“At the center of nonviolence stands then principle of love. The non-violent resister would contend that in the struggle for human dignity the oppressed people of the world must not succumb to the temptation of becoming bitter and indulging in hate campaigns. To retaliate in kind would do nothing but intensify the existence of hate in the universe. Along the way of life, someone must have the sense and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can only be done by projecting the ethic of love to the center of our lives.”

As I contemplate Dr. King’s words, I feel a sense of expansion, and am filled with peace and love. If it feels right to you, I invite you to let his words resonate deep within you. And, should you feel inspired to take action on local or global issues, how do you wish to contribute? Tune in to your heart and listen. If time and resources are not within your current means, sending love is just as powerful an action as others.

In times of doubt or fear, which we are all likely to experience, here are four ways to reconnect to strength and love:

1.  Respond. When tempted to react to what you see or hear, take a breath, walk away, and take a moment to calm down. So often, in the heat of emotion, we are tempted to lash out and react, creating fear and suffering for ourselves and others. Giving yourself the time and space required to calm down will allow you to respond with greater confidence and power.

2.  Take Inspired Action. Quiet the mind and listen to your heart. Your actions will be more effective and your decisions more impactful.

3.  Develop Loving Backbone: Don’t worry about what others are doing or saying. Take a stand for the values you believe in without getting caught in a wave of emotion, blame or judgment. Let the wisdom of your inner voice guide you.

4.  Self-Care. When feeling anxious or out of sorts, ask yourself what you need to do to restore harmony and balance. Then honor yourself and take appropriate actions.

Although our state of affairs may look dire and confusing at the moment, we can only see a small fraction of the picture. More will be revealed.

With love,

Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) 5 Ways to Recognize Your Ego and Regain Your Balance. Plus, Special Offer   Leave a comment

Preamble

Do you suffer from fear and anxiety? Or have a hard time getting to sleep at night because you’re too busy worrying? Fear, anxiety and worry are interconnected and share a common thread. In this week’s TNT, you will learn about a spiritual principle to calm your mind and regain your peace and balance. If you would like support on your journey, scroll down to learn about a special savings on a 90-minute Discovery Coaching session.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) 5 Ways to Recognize Your Ego and Regain Your Balance

“There is a healer in you, rooted in and always connected to your spirit. To know this healer and make it work in your life you must (once again) get your ego out of the way.” – Wayne W. Dyer

The ego can be persnickety. Masking itself as wisdom, truth, and intelligence, it often pulls us off our path and creates unnecessary anxiety. While it’s important to make informed decisions, holding ourselves back from the changes we wish to make is another story!

As you read the list below, make note of the ones you relate to:

  1. Do you find yourself worrying about the future?
  2. Have difficulty making decisions because you’re afraid of making a mistake?
  3. Would like to make a change in your personal or professional life, but procrastinate?
  4. Do you tell yourself you don’t have the skills or resources to pursue your goals and dreams?
  5. Do you wake up in the morning feeling depressed or dreading the day?

If you checked one or more of the above, your ego is getting in the way!

Fear, worry, stress, and other low frequency emotions, zap our energy, affect our health, and are rooted in the ego – or what Buddhists call “the little mind” – which projects doom and gloom into the future and prevents us from living our best lives. And the more fearful we become, the more we condition our minds to believe our projections are real.

I had an epiphany yesterday when I realized I had been feeling overly anxious about a change I’ve been wanting to make. Then, as if the gods waved a magic wand while I was meditating, I recalled this beautiful principle from Dr. Mikao Usui, an enlightened master who discovered the healing art of Reiki.

The principle below is one of five spiritual precepts I learned during my First Degree Reiki Training in 1984, while living in Seattle.  I felt an immediate sense of relief as I repeated the words; the worry vanished, and I felt a deep sense of peace, joy, and happiness.  I was living in the present.

The precept serves as a guide for living. Open your heart and try it.

“Just for today, I will not worry.”

If you would like to feel more peaceful and create a brighter future, it would be my pleasure to work with you.

I invite you to take advantage of this month’s special offer: A 39% savings on a 90-minute Discovery Session. Please see the details below.***

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Breakdowns   Leave a comment

Preamble

Ever have one of those days, months or years? Do you feel like you’ve been living under a dark cloud, and that nothing is working out? Don’t fret! Today’s TNT will help you discover your breakthrough!

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Breakdowns

“When we are concerned with something bigger than ourselves, our fears are greatly diminished.  We sense ourselves as being part of a bigger whole – we are not alone, and perhaps for the first time, are aware of a sense of purpose.” – Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.

Every breakdown has a breakthrough. For the last year or so, I’ve been noticing a variety of mishaps – from the handle on my refrigerator unexpectedly breaking off when attempting to open it, to my car not starting, computers crashing and getting a fourth printer in the space of a year.

Situations, such as these, can be incredibly frustrating (I know!) and create a lot of stress and anxiety. Today, while walking to an appointment, I was reminded that breakdowns are not the end of the story! While we may not know when, or how, or what the breakthrough will be, we can true that there is something bigger wanting to unfold in our lives.

The next time you experience a series of breakdowns, ask yourself what life is wanting to tell you.  You might like to journal on the question, or simply sit and meditate and be open to the answer that’s revealed, then write it down so you can read it when you need a reminder.

Pay attention to where life is taking you and follow the energy’s flow. Trust that things working out for you are signs leading to your breakthrough.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) The Art of Caring   Leave a comment

Preamble

Having spent seven years caring for my elderly father, I used to think caregiving was a term explicity used when caring for an elderly or ailing family member. However, my concept of caregiving began to change when a friend called me to task and proclaimed that as a mom, she was a caregiver, too.  Her comment got me thinking.

I have since realized that caregiving takes many forms and spans across multiple professions, including those who care for our health, well-being and communities: therapists, doctors, healthcare providers, healers, aids, coaches, police officers, fire fighters, and members of our armed forces, among others.

This week’s TNT provides practical tips for anyone involved in the art of caring.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool): The Art of Caring

 

As a caregiver, you may find the balance between caring for the needs of your loved one and yourself difficult. You may wrestle with guilt, remorse, anger, frustration, and resentment, and then judge or berate yourself for feeling that way.  And over the long haul, your own health and well-being may suffer. Having been my father’s primary caregiver, and coached many a client and friend, I speak from personal experience. There are several things you can do, however, to maintain (or regain!) your sense of balance.

The following tips will help to nourish your body, mind and soul, and in the process, serve to prevent burnout.

* Take a breath break!

Although breathing is involuntary, and something we inherently do, we often create physical and emotional tension by unconsciously holding our breath when under stress. (Can you relate?) This disrupts our biochemistry, prevents oxygen from nourishing the cells, and builds toxins in the body. The simple act of breathing will improve your health, reduce anxiety, and help you respond, rather than react, when in crises or feeling under duress.

To implement, simply stop at various times throughout the day to tune in to your body and notice your breathing.  If you are holding your breath, stop what you are doing and take a moment to consciously breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. As your breathe in, notice the air as it touches your  nostrils. Repeat two more times, then notice any changes you may feel (more relaxed for instance, or a release of tension). Set the alarm on your phone or other device to check again in 30 minutes. It’s as simple as that!  Applied often enough, it will become a habit.

* Get inspired!

I get it. We’re all busy. But inspiration rocks! And surely, you can find 10-minutes (ok, five will do for starters) to nourish your spirit and prepare for the day. Read something you love, stop to smell a flower or admire something beautiful on the way to work, sing, dance or listen to music. There are 1440 minutes in a day. You can rest assured you’re entitled to at leat five of them!

Inspiration feeds the body, mind, and soul and releases endorphins that will energize and strengthen you.  Not only that, your self-esteem will get a face lift to boot, and you’ll be better able to maintain your sense of optimism and creativity. Important components in the art of self-care and balance.

* Make a date!

Thank Julia Cameron, author of The Artist’s Way for this one.

Take time for yourself once week to go on a dream date. If you need to start slow, even an hour or two will do much to improve your mood, enhance your health and enrich your relationships. Get your nails done, visit your favorite museum, or take yourself out to lunch. In other words – take some time out to enjoy and replenish yourself!

Don’t think you have time? Or financial resources? I can dig it. Sit and make a list of all the things you like to do that are low-cost or free. Then, block the time out in your calendar, as you would a “real” date and do it! You are important!

(Tip: If you like museums, check to see if the ones in your community offer a free or “pay as you wish” day. Many local colleges also offer low cost, fun programs.)

* Set boundaries

We all overextend ourselves at one point in time or another. After all, our nature is to give. The problem occurs when we overextend ourselves on a regular basis, and our giving becomes hazardous to our sense of well-being.

For instance, you’ve likely heard the story (true or not) about the mother whose child gets lodged under a car after being run over by a distracted driver. Frightened for her child, she digs deep within herself and finds the strength to lift the car in order to save him. That’s an awesome feat! But if it happened everyday, once a week or even once a month, she would either be a superwoman or burn out from exhaustion. The same holds true when you are consistently stretched beyond the limits of what you can naturally give, with no relief to help or support you.

We want to give our best.  We love the people to whom we give care. And let’s face it, it’s sometimes hard to say no. We don’t want to disappoint or may fear disapproval. Or, on the other hand, we may be afraid to give up control (guilty!) because we believe that we can do whatever needs to be done better than anyone else. Well, that might be true, but it’s equally true that there are extremely capable people who would be willing and able to help – with or without a fee – if you allow yourself to ask them.

Maintaining a sense of balance requires that you are clear with yourself and others about what you can and cannot do. For instance, while caring for my elderly father, I would often feel remorse because he spent so much time alone, and I was concerned that he didn’t have enough stimulation or company. It was neither healthy nor possible for me to be the only one to visit him, so I did a little research and found a community organization that offered a free home visitation program– and voila!  The organization set up weekly visits and provided a host of other services that we hadn’t even inquired about.

It may take a little ingenuity, but if I was able to do it, you could do it, too! Asking for support doesn’t make you weak – rather it demonstrates your strength and courage.

Family members, friends, neighbors, churches and community organizations are there to help. One important caveat: Don’t get attached to who (or who does not!) respond. Sometimes, the help you need will come from the most unlikely places! Be open and willing to receive it.

* Have fun!

Along with keeping your weekly dates, make sure you plan to have a little fun on a regular basis. Having fun invigorates, inspires, increases the endorphins that lift our spirits and keeps us feeling strong and healthy. In his book, Anatomy of an Illness, Norman Cousins talks about healing himself from cancer by, among other things, watching episodes of The Three Stooges. Laughter heals. It’s also good for circulation and stimulates the body’s organs. (Ever hear of Laughing Yoga?)

* Connect with Others

Coffee with a friend or a chat on the phone can be medicine for the soul.  Why not sweeten your live with a little natural sugar!

As always, I would love to hear your comments!
