Have you ever gotton lost and start to panic?
This being lost may be physically where you don't know how to get home again, or it may be lost in your life, feeling unsure of where to go to next, or how to move forward.
The natural tendency when this happens is to run faster, circle around, get flustered as you try and find your way.
Not only are you physically racing around but your mind is also racing along at a mile a minute.
Everything speeds up in a panic to try and get you to back to something familiar.
What can you do when this happens?
STOP, BREATHE, and REGROUP

Do you procrastinate and often find a myriad of excuses as to why you have not got things done?
Do you feel overwhelmed with the many things you have on your “to do” list and wonder how you will ever get started doing them let alone get them all done.
Many people blame a lack of time as the reason why they do not get things completed on their list. Granted, time is precious and there are many demands on all of us. However, sometimes the size of the list can often be the biggest reason why people do not get things done. They just don’t know where to start. What I have outlined are 5 simple steps that can help you tackle some of your list? So let’s begin.

Do you have a tremendous amount of mind chatter that goes on beneath the surface? Many people have self talk conversations that are negative abusive statements such as “you should”, “why did you do that” and “what is wrong with you?” These can lead to feelings of stress and overwhelm as we try and quiet the mind. Wouldn’t it be nice to speak with gentleness and kindness to yourself? To be loving and respectful of all you say and do.

This past weekend I had the opportunity to participate in a Mastermind Retreat with my business coach, Melanie Benson Strick, and 5 other heart based entrepreneurs. It was great learning.
One of the expressions that I heard throughout the retreat was the concept of "Living my life - Full Out".
What does this really mean? How does this relate to my work with families?
My work focuses on helping families transform from stress, depression and overwhelm to a life with more balance, less stress and more peace.

A recent survey of parents indicated that the top three challenges they face in raising their kids (regardless of age) are:
- Knowing what to do when their kids challenge their authority
- How to handle the sibling rivalry and fighting that goes on in the home
- How to motivate their kids without overstressing them

Children come into this world innocent and beautiful, ready to discover their lives. Parents are excited and in awe of the ability to influence the lives of their children. However, when the realities of life hit, the challenges can be many and there is no instruction book on how to get through everything. This reality can be anything from finances, lifestyle, career expectations, to our ways of handling the different things that happen in our lives. The Family Guidance System (FGS) is here to help you find your way through the chaos of this crazy world.

As a mom, there was nothing more challenging for me that finding the balance between my career and my family. I was working full time as a nurse in the Intensive Care Unit when my son was born. I took a maternity leave for 3 months to be at home with him. The thought of leaving him in a day care after that time was too much to bear. My husband’s job was in transition and this created the opportunity for me to stay at home full time with our son. We were incredibly lucky to have this happen.

Are you ready to parent your teens with confidence?
Over my personal as well as professional life I have been on a quest to be a better parent. From the birth of our son some 30 years ago to the tumultuous teen years of our youngest daughter, there have been many bumps on my parenting journey. I have studied probably every parenting course known to man, I studied human growth and development throughout my nursing education and career, and I have not only parented my own children but have supported hundreds of parents in being the best that they can be. In addition to all of this, I have had my own journey into myself and how to be the best person I could be. Waking up to what I can do to change how I react to my teenagers behavior has been an amazing part of my life's journey. All of this education, and life experience have been the fuel that has sparked the "Parent your Teens with Confidence" online program. Check out my website http://www.destressrevolution.com/yourteens to receive your free "Parent your Teens with Confidence" webinar. This Free one hour webinar is designed to give you some ideas about how you can parent your teens differently yet effectively.

When you look ahead to summer, the knowledge that there will be less structure to your days can be very appealing. Imagining lazy days of sitting in the back yard or at the beach relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends tends to dominate our thoughts.

As the children head back to school after a long summer off many parents welcome the change. However, with this change comes the need to get back into the routine. There are dance classes, hockey practices, piano lessons, as well as the need for time for homework, getting to bed earlier, making healthy lunches, healthy dinners, and somehow in the midst of everything creating some quality family time.To top it all off, our work environments also pick up speed in September. Most people are back to work after summer vacation and the workplace hums with new ideas, projects, additional workload and other things. Are you ready for the change? How do you want this school year to be for your children? How do you want this time to be for you? Creating the balance you want can be challenging. All of these demands can lead to stress on the family, on you and your relationships.

What is a martyr? Someone who sacrifices their needs for the needs of others. Now this seems like a noble thing to do. Aren’t many of us conditioned from a young age to sacrifice ourselves for the good of others. Plus, the reality is that as a mother, there are times when it is absolutely essential to put our needs lower down on the list because we have babies and children to feed, change, organize etc.

For those of us who are parents, the idea that our kids are not finding effective ways of coping with stress is scary. When you see all of the problems with childhood obesity, anxiety, depression, eating disorders etc. there is often a fear that we are not doing enough for our kids to help them with the challenges they face.

It is a beautiful day outside. I love the sunshine, the buds on the trees and the smells and sounds of spring. Ah it is great to be alive.
I was reading a blog yesterday “6 tips for being a CEO and not ruining your kids life I hope” and could really empathize with Penelope who is a busy working mom/CEO and is trying to balance it all while keeping her children nurtured and safe. In the treadmill of life it can truly be a challenge. What I noticed most about the blog were the reactions from others to what she did. There were those that totally sympathized and empathized with her dilemma and those that judged and condemned her for her actions and decisions.
