How to Start a Resolution Revolution

It’s that time again. The wrapping paper and bows are put away…and next up on the to-do list is New Year’s resolutions. Right? And so it starts. “I have to lose 10 lbs.” “I should go the gym more often.” “I ought to become vegan.” The parade of “shoulds”, “musts” and “oughts” gets longer and longer as the beginning of January gets closer. At the...

Give Yourself the Gift of Good Health

I was talking to a prospective client a couple of weeks ago and she made a comment that has really stuck with me. I asked her what was motivating her to start taking good care of herself.

Hello Tradition! Meet Transition…

So, here we are again. Surrounded by family and friends during a time of year that is loaded with tradition, high expectations, anxiety, overwhelm, and the potential for enough drama to fill the theaters in Times Square. Fun, huh? I’ve been tap dancing with my own expectations this week…trying to keep myself at an objective, safe 30,000 foot level, but finding myself face-planted in the...

The Art of Receiving

I never really thought about receiving very much. And when I did, it usually was related to material gifts. But a Mastermind group meeting a few years changed all that. One of my groupmates was taking her turn telling all of us about what she was creating in her already-successful. We were all amazed and were telling her how wonderful it all was. But, she...

Dr. Anna’s 8-Step Happy, Healthy Holiday Survival Guide

If you’re experiencing holiday anxiety, consider cutting back on or eliminating caffeine. It only adds to that jittery feeling! Try substituting decaf, water, herbal teas, mineral water with lemon or coconut water.  Eat before you head out to a party. That way you’ll be less tempted to graze through all the “nervous food” (as my friend Christine calls it).  If you’re drinking alcohol, alternate alcoholic...

Adrenals Misbehaving? How to Tell Frazzled from Fine

Every day, a wide range of physical and psychological stressors — a demanding job, raising a family, relationship dynamics, lack of sleep, financial pressures, suboptimal nutrition, dieting, unresolved emotional distress — signal the adrenal glands to produce stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol). This is helpful up to a point (because it helps us get our to-do lists done), but when our adrenal glands are required...

7 Reasons Why Going Complaint-Free is a Mojo Lifter

Ever notice how being around a bunch of chronic complainers just sucks the life right out of you? Or how gossip feeds on itself and creates negative energy?  Yeah, me too. Unfortunately, you can’t control the people around you. But you can control yourself. Going complaint free isn’t easy, but it has a lot of benefits. Gossiping, whining and complaining are habits.

Don’t Just Do Something, Stand There!

Where do you get your best ideas? In the shower? On vacation? When you’re doing nothing? What….NOTHING???? Who DOES that? Our society does not encourage doing “nothingness”. We work too much, eat too quickly, socialize too little, drive and sit in traffic for too many hours, don’t get enough sleep and feel harried too much of the time. We wear our overwhelm and crazy-busyness like Girl Scout...

Can You Pick Your Girls out of a Line-Up?

Breast self-exam (BSE) has been widely hailed as a practice that helps women find breast cancer early—with the idea that finding it early will save lives. There’s just one problem: No study ever has found that BSE reduces breast cancer deaths. That’s why after years of supporting BSE, the American Cancer Society revised its breast cancer screening guidelines in 2003 and now calls BSE “optional”....
