You Can Improve Your Relationship

It seems the two most difficult jobs in life are creating successful relationships with our significant others and parenting children, yet neither come with any formal training. It’s as if people believe that we are born with an inherent ability to do these two things. Yet, look around us. In the US, the divorce rate is slightly over fifty percent! Couples go through life getting along when times are good, but fighting with, ignoring, or leaving each other when things get tough. There are plenty of reasons people hesitate to seek help....

Who do you LOVE?

After my husband died, February was the worst month of the year for me. It’s the month of LOVE, but Valentine’s Day suddenly became the worst holiday. The advertisements seemed to be nonstop: buy the one you love this, and take the one you love to that. But I didn’t have anyone who loved me… did I? Valentine’s Day has become the holiday for lovers to focus on each other, declaring their undying love while treating each other extra-special on this special day. However, Valentine’s Day usually turns out to be the holiday when women...

Change

One thing in life is certain: things never stay the same. If you are hoping for a consistent status quo, then I’m afraid you will be disappointed. Just think back to how things were five years ago and you will realize that, even in such a short time, there is so much that has changed. I’m sure some of you know people who refuse to adapt to the computer age, ‘old timers’ who would rather use word processors or typewriters. What’s up with that? Well, when change comes, we have several options, some of which are more adaptive than...

A Dozen Stress Reducers for You

A Dozen Stress Reducers for You

If you are familiar with the concept of InsideOut Thinking, then you already know that I don’t conceptualize stress as something that exists outside of you. Instead, it’s a behavior you create to help you get something you want. The only way to reduce stress is to empower yourself into taking control of what you can control: your actions and your thoughts. You may not believe you can control what you think, but it’s possible with patience, persistence, and practice. Gaining control over your thoughts and actions is critical to...

The Toxic Type Of Stress That Threatens Great Relationships

According to The New Zealand Herald, a new study says “getting irritated about the small things in life is just as bad for your health as eating a poor diet or failing to exercise.” I see couples who stress out about things, large and small, in their relationships. People get upset about not having dirty clothes in the hamper, their partner not keeping their car neater/cleaner, how their partners spend their money, sex, and how they discipline the children. I do a little tweaking to the well-known Serenity Prayer that when...

Balance Changes Everything

Balance Changes Everything

In the periodic table, unbalanced elements do not exist. The make-up of our universe requires a perfect balance of protons and electrons. In chemistry class, I learned how this Law of Balance applies to our physical environment. What I didn’t learn back then is how it also applies to the metaphysical world. One of the most interesting and helpful concepts of InsideOut Empowerment is that events are just like these physical elements—they are totally balanced, creating complete symmetry. All day long, our minds experience what’s happening...

How The Science Of Broken Heart Syndrome Can Help You Survive Your Worst Breakup

Posted by on Jan 13, 2018 in Grief and Loss, love | Comments Off on How The Science Of Broken Heart Syndrome Can Help You Survive Your Worst Breakup

5 steps to rule your emotions — rather than let your emotions rule you. In doing my research for this article, I found several articles discussing how there really is a thing called “Broken Heart Syndrome” that can be identified in scans of the heart. People complaining of a ‘broken heart’ experience symptoms similar to a heart attack, complete with the pain and distress. While they are not the associated arterial blockages normally associated with heart attack, the heart becomes misshapen causing interference with its...
