Bad days. Nobody is immune to them. I, for one, am no stranger to stressful situations in life. As an entrepreneur who has navigated the ups and downs of the business world whilst raising a young family, I have felt both the ecstatic rewards and the “oh my god, this is so hard!” of my reality.

During the tough times, the “type A” in me wants to control the outcome and is not satisfied with anything less than perfection. But the “zen” in me says, “Chill out, lady!” Luckily, she mostly calls the shots these days. She realizes that each struggle is an opportunity to learn and to grow fully into who we’re meant to be. Each disappointment is a life test. We’re constantly being asked, “How bad do you really want this?” Instead of allowing feelings of defeat to set in, we must allow the subtle guidance of the Universe to lead the way. Instead of resisting and controlling, we must go with the flow.

The Power of Breathe: Pranayama Conscious Breathing

After a few weeks off (more on that soon – busy bee) I’m excited to share a new Mindful Monday with you today.  In this episode, I share a simple yet powerful technique that you can access anytime and anywhere that is going to allow you to step fully into your power.  Our breathe is something that we often take for granted, but it is literally our life force.  Without our next breathe, we cease to exist.  We’re never really taught how to breathe, though.  (Because it’s so natural, right?) But, focused breathe can get us through tough times, it can take us from stress to calm, it can help us become more focused, grounded, centered, happy. All good things, right?  And, it’s easier than you think. Check out the video to learn some easy breathe work and mantra to elevate your mind, body, and spirit.  These are the same breathing techniques used in yoga and meditation, but they are super beneficial in everyday life.

Business & LIfe Coaching for Ambitious Women EntrepreneursWhen I first took the scary plunge of quitting my job and starting my own company back in 2008, I recall not really knowing exactly what I was doing. I mean, I had tons of experience in sales & marketing, but the whole rest of how-to-run-a-business was all brand spanking new to me. I had passion and heart and let it lead the way. But, I had a lot to figure out. And, I took my sweet time looking over the edge of that cliff before I finally dove in.  I was about to take a serious crash course in business and life.

Although surrounded by a great network of supportive friends and family, we didn’t always talk in great detail about my business ventures. Totally understandable. It’s not that exciting of a topic to someone on the outside.  Still, I craved a posse that would not only take interest in business conversation, but totally “get” me on that level.  I needed some peeps that I could open up to about my fears as well as share my successes.  I desired support, understanding, and to be heard.

Run your day like a boss!

Click  here to sign up for the free tele-seminar on August 15th, 2014 @ 12pm: Time Management Tips & Strategies: How to run your day instead of letting your day run you!

If you’re like most of my readers, you probably find yourself juggling many passions & priorities in your life: career, family, & personal growth … all whilst rockin’ the world.  You have big dreams and aspirations, after all. But, despite your Monday Morning Brain Dumpsuper-hero visions, you’re allotted the same 24 hours each day as the rest of us.  And, frankly, sometimes it’s just not enough!

The struggle is real. And, I can totally relate. Running two businesses and raising two young daughters, I’ve often wished for a cloning machine so that I could get twice as much done.  My husband scoffed at that idea (he says one of me is plenty) :) So, instead, I’ve had to adopt some systems and practices over the years to maximize precious time and get more done. This means more intent & focus, less time stressing, more time writing, enjoying life, and reaping the sweet reward of accomplishing what was set out to do. Pretty magical.

(This is one of my articles that was recently published on Huffington Post and has since received over 11k likes on Facebook alone.  So happy that these words have resonated with so many! In case you missed it, I wanted to share on my personal site as well! xx)

Our thoughts, actions and behaviors play a powerful role in what type of energy we attract into our lives. That’s the good news. It’s also the bad news. Oftentimes, we find ourselves participating in negative behavior patterns, even if at a subconscious level. Like a giant lightning rod in a crazy thunderstorm, we become super-attractors… bringing in even more bad energy. These toxic habits can steal the joy right out from under our nose… and nobody wants that. However, once we identify the joy blockers in our lives, we can work on creating new habits which bring more positive energy to us. Here are a few of the biggest offenders and how to overcome them.

Did you know that, on average, we check our smart phones 150 times per day?  If we average 16 waking hours per day, that’s 9.4 times per hour, or approximately every 6 minutes. Crazy, right?! How on earth can we get anything done with that sort of distraction in our life?? It’s difficult, if not impossible, to stay mindful and in the present moment when we are so pre-occupied with what’s going on with our emails, text messages, and social media feeds.

I guarantee that nobody on their death bed has ever said, “If only I had more likes on Facebook” or “I wish I had spent more time watching other people live their lives online.”  No way!  As a matter fact, the typical sayings are more “I wish I had worked less, played more, spent more time with friends and family.”  This is what life is all about … not a lit up screen!

Inspiration often comes from surprising and unexpected sources.  The key is to be open.

I often blog with happiness tips and life lessons, inspiring others to live joyfully in the moment.  This, however, does not mean I get a free pass from funky-days of my own.  As a matter of fact, last week, I received a rejection letter from a  New York City Literay Agent that I was hoping would be interested in my forthcoming book, Type A Zen.  In her letter, she wrote that I had excellent advice, a powerful story, and a charming platform.  However, in a nutshell, she did not think my idea was unique enough or my platform large enough to stand out in this crowded space, and, therefore, she would not be able to help me sell it to a publisher.

Wahhh!!

Got stress?? Umm, yeah.  Who doesn’t?  Am I right?!

In our daily lives, we all have so much thrown at us that we can easily be jolted out of our happy little groove.  But, I believe the quality of our life is not determined by the absence of stress (aka, the impossible), but rather how we deal with these trying moments.

This week, I share some simple mindset tools and practices with the Savor community that you can easily adopt into your own life to go from stressed to blissful in no time, regardless of the outside circumstances.  You too can live your dream, make an impact, and say Om!

Go here to read “Got Stress – How to Bring more Zen into Your Life” now.  And, let us know which of the tools you will adopt into your routine.  And, if you have your own zen tips, please do share!
