JumpStart - Patience

JumpStart - Patience

April 18, 2020

16th Century French monk and writer François Rabelais said, “He who can have patience, can compass anything.”

Back then, the word “compass” wasn’t just used as a noun (a tool to help you find where you’re going), “compass” was also used as a verb (meaning “to get around”).

Therefore, Rabelais saying “If you have patience you can get around anything.”

During the extension of the quarantine for many of us, it’s easy to get angry, disappointed, and frustrated, however we can’t take the easy route.

Patience isn’t just waiting, it’s waiting in a good mood and that mood is up to all of us.

In this JumpStart we talk about ways to have patience during this time of uncertainty so we can all get around it and enjoy happier times that lie ahead.

JumpStart - The Theory of Dirty Dishes

JumpStart - The Theory of Dirty Dishes

April 17, 2020

Have you heard about the theory of broken windows?

The theory states that policing minor crimes such as breaking a window in a vacant building creates an atmosphere of lawfulness that permeates an entire neighborhood.

One broken window unpunished or replaced, the theory states, invites more.

The same is true for you and me during the pandemic.

One dirty dish in the sink invites more until soon you feel overwhelmed by disorder.

Well, today’s the day to put some order back in your life so you feel less stressed, more in control, and HAPPIER!

JumpStart - Your Load

JumpStart - Your Load

April 16, 2020

19th Century poet Ian MacLaren wrote, “Be kind. Everyone you meet is carrying a heavy burden.”

That statement is more true now than ever.

Did you know that according to psychologists, each of us has what's called an allostatic load -- think of a stress thermostat where if things get too stressful for you, you find ways to relax and shut down.

AND, the allostatic load also works the other way -- believe it or not, if we don't feel sufficiently stressed our minds will find something to be upset or worry about.

The mind then finds something annoying, irritating, or bothersome so allostatic load feels adequately upset.

These days on top of our pre-existing allostatic load we pile on a global pandemic and quarantine and you've got a powder keg about to explode.

So, what can you do on a daily basis to lighten your stress?

In this JumpStart, I give you 3 little secrets you can do every day, starting right now, to help you feel less stressed, more chill, and even more focussed.

JumpStart - Social Anxiety

JumpStart - Social Anxiety

April 15, 2020

Something crazy that occurred to me is, “ I wonder if people with severe social anxiety are benefiting from not having to go to work with others?“

I don’t mean that to sound insensitive – – and today I want to address my own social anxiety – – yes, I experience social anxiety as well, and how you might emerge back into society with less of it.

In this jumpstart, I’m going to let you in on the things I personally do on a day-to-day basis to feel less stressed and get more accomplished with less conflict with other people.

JumpStart - Integrtiy

JumpStart - Integrtiy

April 14, 2020

C.S. Lewis said, "Integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is watching."

Well, during the quarantine we find ourselves at home with no one watching and so, how is your level of integrity?

Are you living in integrity by consuming (both mentally and physically) what's going to nourish you are you indulging in junk food?

Who are you now that no one's watching?

Who you are now is, more than likely, who you secretly are so begin to choose who you are now with intention.

Be in integrity with your goals and highest aspirations now and it will be easier when you're back in public surrounded by people.

JumpStart - Like Attracts Like

JumpStart - Like Attracts Like

April 13, 2020

One of the great benefits of people having to separate for a while during the Covid 19 epidemic is that we have an opportunity to make new and better choices going forward.

Most of our habits have been up-ended and we keep and which we discard.

The same is true with people.

Some people are upbeat, encouraging, optimistic, happy, and excited about life -- they're the Winnie the Poohs of our world.

Then, there are the Eeyores who always feel down, have something to worry about, somehow see the weeds and miss the flowers.

Like attracts like, so when the quarantine is lifted (and any time for that matter) seek out the Poohs and avoid the Eeyores.

Because you'll soon become like whoever you're with!

JumpStart- See Me

JumpStart- See Me

April 11, 2020

During this time of social distancing, we get the struggle of not being able to be with the ones we love.

But do we fully embrace the challenge we, as social animals, are having with not BEING SEEN?

We not only have a need to be around other people, but we also have a STRONG social NEED to be seen by them!

And unfortunately, the person who's acknowledgment, love, and validation we need the most is the one we get if from the least -- ourselves!

As you're practicing social distancing it's vital now more than ever, to practice personal intimacy by giving yourself love, attention, and appreciation on a daily basis.

Get started NOW truly seeing AND loving yourself.

JumpStart - Mouse Taming

JumpStart - Mouse Taming

April 7, 2020

 

How you ever wondered why the Hindu God Lord Ganesha is often shown with his foot on or near a mouse?

 

The mouse represents our negative, critical, ego-based thoughts and Ganesha is showing that it takes vigilance to keep the persistent mouse from slowly chewing up our life.

 

The bad news is that the mice never goes away — ever.

 

The good news is that we can tame them such that these negative thoughts cease to rule our consciousness.

 

In this LIVE JumpStart, we’ll explore how to tame our ego thoughts and stay happy and upbeat especially during this time of change and isolation.

 

Be sure and SHARE this with the people you care about!
