Are You REALLY ‘Fine’? How to Manage Your COVID-19 Mindset

I don’t know about you, but I am not ‘fine’. I am angry, disappointed, frustrated, bored, hopeful, and probably 12 other emotions, but ‘fine’ isn’t one of them. To be honest, the last few weeks have really been a mental struggle for me. Given that I’m a coach, you’d think I’d have this whole mindset thing locked down! How about you? What are YOU feeling?...

The Midlife Mindset: It’s Not All Rainbows and Unicorns

“I believe that happiness is a choice no matter the trials and tribulations we are going through. I have chosen to embrace these changes and dive into finding things that bring me joy. For example, I had five children and enjoyed raising them. Now they are all grown. So instead of focusing on the sadness of that, I decided that because I enjoyed my children so...

What Tiger Woods Teaches Us About Midlife, Grace and Redemption

This past Sunday, Tiger Woods found himself in what many considered an impossible situation; leading the Masters golf tournament on the 18th green. And when the last putt fell, there he was, fist pumping, hugging his family and accepting his 5th green championship jacket. It was pure joy to watch. Who would have predicted this? Maybe you’re not a golf fan, but that’s really not...

How To Create Happy Hormones Through Healthy Habit Changes

In my last post, I wrote about the importance of having a healthy mindset around the entire menopause transition. It’s really easy to get caught up in the muck of negative thinking and find yourself with a severe case of health anxiety. That’s why I believe that managing your mindset is THE first step in creating your Hormone Harmony Action Plan. Step 2 in your...

How Negative Thinking Impacts Hormone Imbalances

One of the questions I am asked on a regular basis is, “Will my hormone imbalances get better when I reach menopause?” And the answer is… it depends. For many women, the fall of hormones to post-menopausal levels is all they they need to feel like a new normal has arrived. For others, estrogen dominance symptoms continue because of ongoing hormone imbalances that are related...

Changing the Face of 50: Let’s Teach Our Daughters Differently

One of the participants in my Fit, Fabulous and Fierce over 40 class said something a couple of weeks ago that really struck me. She said, “The weight gain thing in menopause isn’t the worst part of it. The worst part is looking in the mirror and seeing how old I look. I hate how I look.” A long-time friend who recently spent time with...

7 Ways to Break Free from Midlife Mindset Muck

“The biggest problem I’ve had since menopause is lack of passion/interest/direction in my life.” “I feel frozen somehow.” “ I seem to have lost myself.” “ I don’t know what’s normal and what’s not. I focus on every little thing about my body.” These are common comments I hear from my clients and the ladies in the Hormone Harmony Club. It’s almost as if their...

Insomnia has sapped her mojo and family responsibilities are weighing her down. She wanted to know what she could do to feel better RIGHT-THIS-VERY-MINUTE! Here’s what I told her. “Put on...

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...
