Reinvigorating Your Passion

What Do You Do if You Can’t Find Your Passion? Original Article by Elizabeth Gilbert for O, The Oprah Magazine on November 2010. Creative Commons License. Passion fizzles, gets too overwhelming, and sometimes leaves you all together. Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, gives her thoughts on how to overcome a lack of passion, something that we all struggle with time to time.

Instead, take a break and pursue something new that’s been on your mind, ... Read More »

Mindfulness for the Busy

Mindfulness for the Busy

Mindfulness for People Who Are Too Busy to Meditate Written by Maria Gonzalez for Harvard Business Review on March 31, 2014. Creative Commons Licensing. Mindfulness has become almost a buzz-word. But what is it, really? Mindfulness is, quite simply, the skill of being present and aware, moment by moment, regardless of circumstances. For instance, researchers have found that mindfulness can reprogram the brain to be more rational and less emotional. When faced with a decision, meditators showed increased activity in the posterior insula of the brain, which has been linked to rational decision making. This allowed them to make decisions based more on fact ... Read More »

Sleeping Enough: Self-awareness is a Competitive Advantage Published by Tony Schwartz for The Energy Project on March 19, 2014. Creative Commons Licensing.

Work Life Balance: The Integration

Work Life Balance: The Integration

A Major Shift In Work Life Balance? Written by Maria Gamb for Forbes.com on December 17, 2013. Creative Commons Licensing. Over the past few months I have been doing a great deal of travel, speaking to a number of associations on the subject of leadership, gender communications and increasing productivity in the workplace.  As I scanned the list of co-existing speakers I have begun to notice something very important.  There is very little discussion on work life balance anymore. Yes, there are always segments on health, nutrition and stress relief. But, where are the work life balance seminars that have become a hallmark ... Read More »

Methods to Avoid Secondhand Stress

Methods to Avoid Secondhand Stress

Protecting Yourself from Secondhand Stress Written by Jan Bruce for GPS for the Soul on February 25, 2014. Creative Commons Licensing. Empathy is a wonderful thing. In fact, it’s an essential characteristic of resilience. Understanding what makes people tick, and most importantly, what they need, is what connects you with others, which in turn bolsters your ability to weather life’s rough patches. But being attuned to others’ emotions means that you’re potentially leaving yourself wide open to their frantic, messy, grousing, all-around unpleasant feelings, too. Think of the last time you sat down with a coworker or friend who was ... Read More »

The mere presence of mobile devices hurts the quality of your relationship. Many of us have had the frustrating experience of being in the middle of a conversation with someone, only to have that person answer a phone call or respond to a text. It can be discouraging to feel like you’re competing with a cell phone for someone’s attention…and losing.

Do You Know Your Purpose?

Do You Know Your Purpose?

5 Reasons Most People Never Discover Their Purpose Written by Shelley Prevost for INC on August 29th, 2013. Creative Commons Licensing. Living and working with purpose is a process of self-discovery–and one most of us never let ourselves undergo. “The deepest form of despair is to choose to be another than himself.” Soren Kierkegaard After my last post on How to Know if You’re Working (and Living) with Purpose, I had the opportunity to hear from a handful of readers about their fear that the path they’ve chosen isn’t the right one. We are lured into thinking that the purpose of life equals upward social mobility, ... Read More »

8 Ways to Perfect Your Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance and You Written by Ilya Pozin for TNW on August 7, 2013. Creative Commons licensing. Sometimes, busy workdays can feel like a marathon with the finish line still miles away. You enter the office early to find a mountain of work waiting for you, a full inbox, and a calendar blocked out with meetings. It’s no wonder so many employees have grown accustomed to staying late and taking work home. In a recent study by Accenture, work-life balance — ahead of money, recognition, and autonomy — was the key determinant for more than half of men and women in regards to whether ... Read More »

Five Ways to Manage Stress In A Relationship

Managing Stress in Relationships Written by Tamara Lackey for All in One Life on July 6th, 2013. Stress is a part of life. We all know that. And it should be a part of life. It’s actually a good thing that we can respond to stressful situations instinctively. If you’re going for a hike in the hills and a mountain lion suddenly appears, you are going to feel stress. Your instincts kick in and take over; and, in multiple ways, your body becomes your mind. Every cell heightens to respond to pure stress. Once the mountain lion disappears, however – ... Read More »

Awareness and Spending All Day With You

Awareness and Spending All Day With You

A Day With Yourself Written by Tamara Lackey for All in One Life on July 5, 2013. Imagine if you could spend the day with yourself, doing everything you would normally do on your own with YOU by your side.  From getting ready in the morning to eating breakfast (and hearing yourself chewing) to making a flippant joke with a friend to rushing to get to an appointment to losing your temper – all the way to plopping on the couch and zoning out, then finally climbing up to bed.  Oh, and that would include listening, intently, to everything you ...
