Happy break up season!

‘Tis the Season…to Break Up!
I swear I’m not making this up! The period of January 2nd through February 12th is infamously known as “break-up season,” and if you don’t believe me, just ask any divorce attorney. Interestingly, early-year splits are not limited to the romance department, but apply to a variety of areas—job changes, business partner dissolutions, or “turning over a new leaf” in your lifestyle/health goals (like eating differently to lose weight, for instance).In the case of romantic  break-ups, people generally wait until after the holidays to make this type of change since, let’s face it, no one wants to be alone or dealing with major upheavals during this time of year. However, with Valentine’s Day looming, it makes sense to cut off the relationship before it arrives, thus avoiding having to buy an expensive gift for someone with whom you see no future. Regarding the job situation, seeds of dissatisfaction are often planted during the January to mid-February timeframe, even if it takes a while to find another job and actually leave.

What is so different about these particular six weeks?

I explained the relationship rationale already, but in other areas, there are a number of factors contributing to beginning-of-the-year restlessness. Firstly, the longer periods of darkness lead to mild depression for some people, causing more introspection and reflection. We may become more acutely aware of certain life issues and feelings, and think to ourselves, “I’m not happy. Why is that?”

Another aspect of the post-New Year’s period is that many of us—even with the bustle of the holidays—have had some time off from work and the chance to reconnect with family. If you’ve been over-extending yourself on the job, you might painfully sense what you’ve been missing by working so much. Again, this can cause you to question your life’s direction and whether you want to continue on your current course. Often the answer is “no,” and hence the desire for change.

Even though “’Tis the season,” major change is still not easy, even if you’re moving away from something that is harmful or limiting you. This is especially true in the case of leaving a bad relationship in hopes of finding a better match. After leaving what is old, familiar, and yet unsatisfying, you may be on your own for quite some time before a new relationship presents itself. Or you may be walking away from a job that you hated to begin a new one someplace else. What if this one is even worse? It feels risky, like jumping off an edge into the unknown.

At this point, it helps to remember that part of any great success story is what preceded the final victory…the self-centered boyfriend or girlfriend you had to walk away from, the demeaning treatment you got at your old job, the dozens of rejections before your business plan finally got backing. It takes courage, and lots of it, along with a degree of tolerance for the unfamiliar, to abandon what you’re accustomed to and break new ground. But unless you push aside the stuff in your life that isn’t working, it takes up the parking spot where your new life could be.

Having said all that don’t be afraid to call a lawyer for advice if your breakup involves anything legal.  I cannot tell you how many ugly stories of being taken advantage of that I have heard in my office that started  with the person saying “I was trying to be nice so I didn’t call a lawyer and it cost me a fortune.”

Now don’t read this and think that I’m telling you to dump your boyfriend, quit your job, or fire your business partner. These are your decisions, obviously, but don’t be terribly surprised if you find yourself doing some bigger-picture life evaluation right after the holidays. I encourage you to entertain those thoughts just a little, because who knows—they may be the seeds of inspiration leading to your next huge win!

The 5 stages of Grief

5 Stages of Grief

Denial/disbelief: Done

Anger: Been there, still there

Bargaining: Not sure really.

Depression: Yep, got it.

Acceptance: yes, still working on that one.

Even if your guy won hardly any person woke up feeling good about this process and truly excited about who we elected and that’s something we need to look at as a country.  How our candidates get chosen, why do we still need the electoral collage rather than just going with the popular vote and why isn’t election day a national holiday so no one has to choose between and paycheck and participating in our election.

And on an even deeper level we need to look at the racism, misogyny and general hatred that is dividing our country and causing us to elect someone endorsed by the KKK.

All things I think as a nation we need to look at so that we can heal the deep wounding and issues this election brought to the surface for us all to see.

In the meantime, know that those 5 stages are not linear meaning you won’t go down the list you will bounce around a bit.  Anger especially is going to be an issue for many of us for a while so everyone needs to watch themselves as we process our grief.  I say this after having picked a fight with husband this morning over something ridiculously stupid..willing to bet I am not the only one.

So, for now take my advice

No twitter, news or anything with more conflict than you would see on cupcake wars.

Put on some classical music (I recommend Chopin’s nocturnes)  while taking a long bubble bath
And lastly (and know you will likely never hear this advice from me again) go buy some ice crème…the good stuff not that skinny cow c*** and enjoy and know that this too shall pass.

Oh, and tell someone you love them. The world could use a lot more love right now.

What Accomplishment are you not Giving Yourself Credit for?

accomplishEvery day in my office, I see people who have accomplished amazing things! But rather than celebrate their achievements, they usually negate them with some statement that begins, “Yeah, but…”

“I have a PhD in mechanical engineering and recently got promoted BUT none of that really matters because I can’t seem to lose these last 20 pounds.”

“I am a medical doctor with a thriving practice BUT I have $100,000 in student loan debt…”

I’ll be honest here—I, too, downplay my accomplishments, which is one reason I understand the problem so well. Here’s one of my own examples: I wrote an excellent book about emotional eating called Feed Your Real Hunger. It earned great reviews, was a finalist in a writing contest, and is very well-written…BUT sales of the book were kind of underwhelming, so in some ways it feels like a failure.

Really, now. Who cares that much about 20 pounds? And most people have at least some debt, but how many are saving lives every day? Lastly, very few people write and publish books, even bad ones, so why focus on sales numbers? (I’m talking to myself here)

It seems like women are particularly prone to diminishing their triumphs. I once had a client who grew up in abject poverty, often going to bed hungry. When she came from her country of origin to the U.S. at the age of 12, she spoke very little English. This same disadvantaged woman overcame all of that and went on to be the first person in her family to get a college education. Then she blew past that and got a master’s degree, all while working two jobs, living with three roommates, and basically having no personal life for six years. How could she possibly have a “Yeah, but…”? According to her, she felt like a failure because she had a really hard time with public speaking. In her words, “I still feel like that confused 12-year-old girl who doesn’t understand what the teacher is saying to me.”

It doesn’t help any that the world will try to knock you down and convince you that even a one-in-a-million feat doesn’t really count. Unfortunately, the success of others often has the effect of bringing peoples’ insecurities to the surface, and the more they can criticize and discount, the less they have to face up to their own shortcomings. The thing is, life is not a bank statement where you look at your success-to-failure ratio to determine net worth. Life is something else far more satisfying than that.

To Be Creative, Go Play!

“Think about it deeply, then forget it, and an idea will jump up in your face.”
~ Don Draper to Peggy Olsen, TV episode of “Mad Men”

Most of us face challenges all day long, the solutions for which require at least some creativity on our part. What most people don’t realize is that “creativity” and “anxiety” are not friends. Anxiety significantly blocks your creative ability, causing you to miss solutions—even the most obvious ones—to any problem you face.

If you find yourself mulling over something too much, consider the wisdom from the quote above. Forget about the issue for the moment, and go see a movie, take a walk, or play with your animals. The key is to play, which is like a vitamin for building creativity. When you fortify your creative side, fresh options seem to appear like magic!

Think of your creativity as being a bit like a child, one who likes to play and responds very well when things are fun. Few of us are allow ourselves enough playtime, and the result is a lot of stress.

I practice playing myself, as you can see below:
Jill with a Goat
Yes, that’s me—a grown-up without a child in tow, who waited in line with a bunch of kids so I could get my picture taken with a baby goat. It sounded like fun!

If you are sitting around worrying about a problem, I cannot stress enough (pardon the pun) that you need to go play. The choices are clear: worry and misery, or fun and problem-solving. Decide for yourself that you are worth the happier option…you may be amazed at what opens up for you.

So often when things get difficult out there I get a lot more calls for sleep deprivation.  This short 6 minute meditation will help you go into a deep sleep and stay there for the night.

Some of you will recognize this because I put at the end of your recording if you ask for a sleep process.  It’s a client favorite and my friend Augie Augusto put cute cat pictures in the background to make it a video rather than just a audio file.  Decided to use You-Tube’s bandwidth rather than my own.

Hope you enjoy it.  Be warned..it does work so don’t try it while driving.

Reclaim Your Childhood

Posted by healthyhabi | Posted in healing, Uncategorized | Posted on 10-08-2015

Reclaim Your Childhood

Many of us were denied things as children that would have helped us feel happier and more fulfilled as adults. Things like the ability to express ourselves through artistic interests like dance, drama, painting, or cooking, or not being allowing to pursue interests like astrology or tarot cards for religious reasons. For various reasons, parents can fail to see the need for freedom of expression, may not have the resources available to pursue these interests, or don’t want their children exploring the world that way. Often one sex is not allowed a particular interest because of cultural or religious beliefs like “girls don’t play hockey,” or “boys don’t cook.”

Denial of a child’s natural inclinations and interests can create and leave lasting resentment toward the parents, as well as a strong sense of sadness about “what could have been” if the child had been allowed to pursue his/her passions.

While you can’t rewrite your history, you can reclaim those passions and allow yourself to have what was denied to you as a child. In almost every community you can find adult dance classes, sports groups, art classes, or even acting classes. With a credit card and an internet connection, you can buy just about any book on any subject ever made and have it shipped to your home.

You can even take classes on astrology, intuition development, or mediumship. I attended one of James Van Praagh’s classes once, and a 75 year old woman stood up and told the group she was taking the class for the first time because she wanted “to learn how to talk to dead people while she was still alive.” Loved it!

It is never too late to pursue your dreams. I went to a 40th birthday celebration with a bunch of friends once, and the birthday girl made the announcement that she was going back to school to be a doctor. Another person in the group said, “You realize by the time you’re totally finished you’ll be 50.”

My friend replied, “I’ll be fifty anyway, so I may as well do what I want.”

I thought that was the most awesome answer I had ever heard.

While there is still breathe in your body and you have the ability to use your limbs, you are still capable of creating the life you want for yourself. Reclaim your childhood dreams, and if they still sound like fun, pursue them. I have yet to hear someone in my office regret pursing a dream no matter how unattainable it seemed. I have, however, heard plenty of people regret NOT pursuing something. Don’t be one of those people with regrets, and if you are, come in. I would love to see you. If you are not, go out and have some fun. If your version of fun is a pottery class near the beach, maybe I will see you there! Love yourself enough to release your past and pursue your dreams. You never know where they will take you.

How I Learned to Love Sales

How I Learned to Love Sales  

When I was 18, I fell in love for the first time. No, not with a guy but with a used red 1984 Honda CRX. Remember those? I saw it parked out front of a local VW dealership. It was truly love at first sight, but like many first loves, there was a problem. It cost more than I had, which meant I needed a parent to co-sign. I needed my dad’s permission to buy a sports car— and that was not going to happen.

I explained my plight to a 60-ish old school car salesman, and he said, “Just bring him in, and I’ll take care of it.” I had to con my dad to even come look at the Honda “Civic,” and it was a nearly instant “no” until the salesman arrived. “Sir, I can see she really likes this car, but what do you think?”

“I think no.”  The salesman is undaunted and said, “I agree with you, and I was going to try and talk her out of it.”

I thought, “WHAT is he doing?! That traitor. I thought he had my back.”

Then, he proceeded, “You see, that particular year Honda made 2 engines. This car has the smaller one, which means she will have a tough time getting it over 70 downhill with a tailwind(Sadly, this was true). She said she likes to camp, but with this car, she will only ever get to bring one friend. Her boyfriend will hate it because as you can see… (he winked to me—nudge to dad) no back seat.” I left the dealership an hour later with keys in hand.

Now it could be argued that he manipulated my dad, but he hadn’t said anything that wasn’t completely true. He simply helped my father see that this car solved some problems for me and my dad that my dad didn’t realize needed solving. The experience taught me to have a bit of respect for the sales profession for the first time.

Selling is about helping people solve problems. Some problems are big, like the need for a reliable car that won’t get your teen killed. Some are small, like the need for a comfortable chair or a place to have a healthy quiet meal that’s not too crowded. All of these problems are important to someone.

Business owners who are not naturally salespeople have a tough time understanding this. They don’t realize how important the problem they help solve can be to the person who has it. As a result, they don’t put themselves out there enough, don’t charge enough, feel bad asking for payment, and in general, don’t promote what they do well enough. If you are not putting yourself out there, you are holding out on those who really need your special brand of service.

Some problems save money, some make money for others, and some just make a person feel good about themselves for a little while (like getting your nails done). That is worth a whole lot in a world programmed to make you feel bad.

Even if you are not in sales, you, as a person, have something special to share—something unique that this world needs that only you can provide. Are you well compensated by asking for what you need? Do you feel guilty asking for money or even recognition for what you do everyday that makes life better for those around you? If you are, you need to start by recognizing yourself. Take note of how valuable what you do is, how much it makes the world better, and how many problems you solve just by being you, even if it’s just being a great companion to your life partner or dealing with the cats so your spouse doesn’t have to.

*Make a list of all the problems you solve and look at it from an outsider’s perspective. Do you ask for enough compensation? Are there more ways you can connect with the people who most need what you have to offer? Work on trying to really get into the FEELing space of realizing how much of what you do helps others.

As a side note, I had that car for over 10 years and 170K miles with no breakdowns until the end. You better believe that salesman’s efforts solved some pretty big problems in my life.

Relationship Advice For Couples

Relationship Advice For Couples

Over the years, I have seen lots of married people in my office come in for all sorts of issues, many of them relationship concerns, and in that time, I have noticed a few things that I think are important to share.

First, I will preface this by saying, these are not hard and steady rules. Even in my practice I have seen exceptions, but these are common trends to consider.

The kiss of death in relationships:

Not sleeping in the same bed for any reason. Not a good sign. Even if the person claims it’s because someone snores, that never seems to go well for long.

Having kids when the relationship is on shaky ground. Bad idea. A child highlights a couple’s relationship weaknesses and turns a crack into a crevice very quickly. Some people think having kids will save their relationship, but in my experience, the opposite happens.

Not seeing each other. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder…” of someone else. I don’t know how military families survive deployment. They often don’t. Not being around your partner very much is never good for a relationship.

Making your whole life revolve around him and/or the kids. Everyone in the household needs and deserves their own interests, and it’s important for Mom to make sure she has her own things going on so she’s not depending on her children and husband for life satisfaction. Making your life all about them tends to make you more needy, and that is never healthy for a relationship’s longevity. Plus, it makes women terribly unhappy in the long run.

Drug, alcohol or sex addiction. Addictions ruin families, destroy your financial future and make enemies out of life partners. If this is an issue in the family, seek help right away.

Exes and step kids. Think long and hard if you are dating someone with a child because no matter how much you love that person or their children, the ex will always be a part of your relationship. That can make a marriage feel a bit crowded. Make an honest assessment to ensure you can handle this before you sign up for “Till death…” It’s not selfish to say it doesn’t work for you.

Things that are not necessarily the kiss of death:

– Cheating. It sounds like an instant end, but I have commonly heard from people that someone cheating was the best thing that happened to their relationship. It forced them to look at the problems in their partnership and work on their relationship. Many couples are able to survive this and thrive after.

Sexual Dysfunction. For either party, these issues can be resolved, and often the process of working together as a couple on these issues makes the couple stronger than before.

Workaholics. Sounds bad and sometimes it is the kiss of death, but if both people are working hard at their own things, they can still have a lovely, happy partnership. Problems tend to arise when one person is a stay at home partner, and the other is always gone.

Again, these are observations, not hard and steady rules. Do keep in mind, people typically come in because something’s not working well. As I have seen these same issues over and over again, I wanted to share what I have learned. Hope this gives you some insight. Feel free to share any advice you might have.

How I overcame my fear of public speaking

Posted by healthyhabi | Posted in healing | Posted on 01-09-2015

Tags: , , , ,

0

I was standing in front of a group of medical doctors about to give a speech on enzymes that my college physiology professor helped me write the day before. I remember thinking, “Is it too late to quit this job?” I wasn’t the first choice to give this speech. I was the third, but I was there now standing in front of the crowd. So yes, it was a bit too late to quit.

Two weeks earlier, I had started a job as an invoice clerk for a vitamin company. Someone figured out pretty quickly that people love to buy things from me so I got moved to sales. A trade show in Colorado that was coming up had us all busy helping my boss’s boss prepare to give a speech to a group of medical doctors—a notoriously unfriendly crowd. My boss’s boss got sick, and then my boss quit… Someone had to fly to Vail, Colorado to give the speech and spend the week selling vitamins at the show. For some reason, I—a 23 year old nursing student and new hire—seemed like the right choice. Those fools!

When approached about doing this, I gave the only answer someone who both needed the money desperately and was new on the job could give, ”Sure, no problem. I can handle it.” In my dreams maybe, but in reality, I was freaked out.

I threw up twice on the plane ride over, intentionally left my glasses on the table so I could not see the crowd while giving my speech and gave a 5 minute presentation in 90 seconds flat, but most importantly, I survived. Later, one of the doctors came up to me and commented that I seemed so at ease. She wanted to know how I became so comfortable with public speaking. I said, “I am an actress in my spare time (a total lie) and apparently, a VERY good one.”

Prior to that experience, I felt scared even using my company’s intercom system because I didn’t like hearing my voice vibrate throughout the whole building. After completing that public presentation, I could have sung “Yankee Doodle” on the intercom and been fine.

That’s what happens when you reach out of your comfort zone and up the next rung on the ladder to do something more difficult. Suddenly, everything below that level becomes easy.

In my career as a hypnotherapist I have since given countless speeches, presentations, radio show interviews and even a few you-tube videos and I sometimes get nervous, but it doesn’t keep me from wanting to get my message out there and doing it anyway. Still, I know that if something is hard for me, in order to make it easier, I reach for the next higher rung on the ladder and do that. This is why I started my own Blog Talk radio show interviewing guests about how to create the body and life they want using the power of their mind—I wanted to stop being nervous about being a guest on someone else’s show!

If you want to get out of the box of fear you have put yourself in, try doing the next harder thing on the ladder, the one that’s a big stretch. I guarantee you will be able to handle it, and I know that everything you previously thought was hard will suddenly become a lot easier. You will become a stronger, more amazing person because of it. I’ll meet you up there since I’m looking for my next thing too.

Love yourself enough to allow yourself to truly realize your full potential by always reaching and growing.

Help! I have to spend Christmas with the Anti-Christ

Posted by healthyhabi | Posted in healing, Uncategorized | Posted on 12-04-2014

I have to spend Christmas with the Anti-Christ

One of my clients showed up with the above dilemma asking for advice. Since I know she has several people in her life who qualify for that title, I had her explain whom exactly she was referring to. “Oh, my mother-in-law,” she replied. “A woman whose complete narcissism and thinly veiled contempt for me make spending the holidays so much fun.“

She continued, “My mother-in-law spends the first 10 minutes or so complaining about how my husband and I had to spend Christmas Eve with my parents rather than be with her. She says, ‘It’s not fair. You go there every year.’ That’s right, we do. So why would this year be any different? She needs to just get over it. My brother-in-law, who usually shows up very late, walks in and almost immediately pretends to fall asleep on the couch while my husband is usually assigned some bogus task like taking boxes out of one place and moving them to another. He actually likes this because now he’s out of the room leaving me to listen to his mother’s 1-2 hour bitter monologue. She weaves a very impressive web of negativity; if it were smoke, it would canvas and darken the entire sky. She complains about everyone and everything she has ever encountered. She has absolutely no interest in anything I might say. In fact, if I calmly said, ‘The house is on fire,’ she would say, ‘That’s nice,’ and go back to her monologue.”

“Don’t you have a sister in law,” I ask.

“Oh, her. I think I’ve only met her twice because every family event she calls in with some reason why she can’t make it. My husband and I bet each other on what the excuse will be. My money is on a headache. My husband says she’ll have cold since she used headache last year. Back to my mother-in-law, please don’t tell me to ‘Kill her with kindness’. It seems wrong that we as a family have to spend the most holy of holidays with people who clearly dislike each other’s company so very much?”

Well, I am sure this is the part where I am supposed to tell her about learning to get along or some other spiritual principle, but I bet she’s already heard that lecture. Instead, I tell her the truth as I see it.

“Why don’t you call in sick too?” She says she doesn’t want to. So I have to ask, “Do you kind of like being there?”

She ponders for a second and says, “Maybe a bit, in a Real Housewives kind of way. It is somewhat entertaining to see what drama emerges from these events, and my mother-in-law loves to make up or extremely exaggerate stories. My husband and I compare notes later and try to figure out what she said that might actually be true.”

“So you do have fun?”

“Yes, I guess so, but I feel like I shouldn’t enjoy this. It seems sacrilegious, and it’s not always fun, especially when my mother-in-law doesn’t feel like waiting until I am completely out of the room before she starts complaining about me and making up “did you hear what she said” stories.”

“But doesn’t it make a great story?”

“Yes,” my client says. “But who can I tell it to besides you?” (and my entire database, but she doesn’t know that part yet) *This story was shared with permission.

I respond with the following suggestion, “How about you invite some friends over to your house for a December 26th white elephant gift party where you trade family drama stories as well as crazy gifts?”

“Wow, that would actually be fun. I might do that, thanks!” (Still waiting for my invite)

You aren’t likely going to fix your family dynamic before the holiday. Instead of spending it being mad and annoyed, see it as a truly unscripted ridiculous reality show. If that doesn’t work, my radio show guest Jackleen Holton shared some great tips on how to lovingly deal with family over the holidays. Click HERE to listen.

Don’t let it bother you so much. It is not worth getting upset about. Enjoy the eggnog.

It’s been my pleasure to be of service to you this past year, and thank you all for sharing your inspiring, funny and sometimes very sad stories. I feel truly honored that you shared them with me, and I wish you all great joy and peace during the holidays and in the years to come.

Thank you for a wonderful year.

Sincerely,
