Troubleshooting Your Healing Process

After years of applying mind-body healing tools in my life and coaching others around using their mind-body connection to feel better, I’ve finally condensed what I know into practical and digestible pieces. We read about the mind-body connection, we hear more and more about it these days, and it sounds good. But the practical application Read More

The Art of Waiting

I will admit it. Patience is not exactly one of my strengths. According to the Kolbe Index  I’m a Quick Start. This just means that my tendency is to dive into things headfirst and get going, ASAP. I pretty much do everything this way. On the one hand, it does mean I get a lot Read More

The Key to Creating Change – Being a Good Spy

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite books was Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhigh. I loved Harriet. I emulated her in every way, practicing my spy techniques daily. I drove my parents nuts by appearing any time they were trying to have a private conversation. They joked that they couldn’t keep a Read More

Overeating and the Pregnant Revelations

For what seems like my entire life, I have struggled with overeating and not liking my body. That can’t actually be true, since I remember being five years old and definitely not caring about things like that, but by age ten, I’d definitely decided my body wasn’t attractive. I ate food to calm myself, to Read More

Strong is the New Skinny

The other day I went to coffee with my personal trainer, and we were chatting about fitness, the urge women have to do endless, hideous (in my opinion, of course) hours of cardio exercise instead of strength training, and our cultural viewpoint around women with muscles and strength. She mentioned she was giving a workshop Read More

My Body Image Journey: The Inside Story

I was reading fellow coach Jeannette Maw’s blog post about her belly spell this week (The belly spell really cracked me up! Soooo funny! I love Jeannette!) and it inspired this post. I have struggled for many years – my entire life, actually – with body image issues. I can remember clearly when I first Read More

Let Yourself Off the Hook – 3 Steps to Instant Stress Relief

Self-pressure is my term for the mental expectations you have about yourself that differ from what you really need in this moment. It’s an instant stress-creator. Self-pressure can seem very subtle until you get used to noticing it. For example, I often decide I’m going to work out X number of days in a week, Read More

3 Simple Steps to Calm Your Inner Perfectionist

Just about once or twice a day, my tendency toward perfectionism rears its head. It’s a trait I’ve had from birth, according to my mother. I’ve become well-acquainted both with its usefulness and how it often gets in my way. When I first read Dr. John Sarno’s book, The Mindbody Prescription, I recognized myself in Read More

Remembering What You Forgot

This weekend, I was feeling a little disconnected, stressed, and tense. My shoulders were inching up around my ears and clearly holding some kind of emotion. I knew it was time to walk my talk, so I mind-body coached myself. This experience reminded me that I haven’t written much about what I call mind-body maintenance. Read More
