Adapting New Habits during a New Normal…

Is your anxiety level higher than usual, due to the pandemic and the natural course of actions, that has been taking place over the past several months?  With very few businesses returning to a full time office setting any time soon, most individuals will continue to work from home. This means that certain things that you did before this “new normal”, may no longer be working for you now. This new season will require new adjustments and change.  It may be time to shed some ineffective habits and adapt some new ones, that may be more relevant for this season.

With Thanksgiving safely behind us, the holiday season is well on its way. The thoughts of gift giving, holiday dinners, parties, shopping, and creating an overall sense of comfort, joy and happiness with family and friends, are all a part of what is expectant of the holidays.  Although this is a season of giving, joy, laughter, fun and happiness, for a small percentage of individuals, this can be a season that is dreaded, often with signs of depression, anxiety and heartache. This is  commonly known as the holiday blues. This is often a time when loneliness, sadness and other types of...

Ladies First

As the leader of a women’s empowerment group, I try to engage my clients by having them realize, that there has to come a time when they will have to take control of their lives, and put themselves first.  With the increasing demands from our jobs and family responsibilities many of my clients and myself included tend to take a back sit, while taking care of everyone else’s needs.  With this in mind, health issues may get neglected, and other aspects of an overall well being.  As my clients verbalize their concerns, and daily challenges, my usual response to them is ” what good will you be...
