Fear is simply a label we place on a situation we do not feel capable of handling successfully. It is your body’s response to our thought life and can flow from past situations which fuel feelings of threat and inability to handle a situation. As we remember we have a God given ability to rise above perceived threats, which in some cases includes healthy boundaries and pulling in the necessary resources so that we return to a place of safety and positive connection, which is the case in real physical and emotional attack, we will step out of the fear hauntings which rob us of the ability to experience life satisfaction and consistent joy.   Below is an NLP (Nuero-linguistic Programming) technique you can use to eliminate the emotional/biological reaction you have to a fear or anxiety:   This is a technique you can use to eliminate the emotional/biological reaction you have to a fear or anxiety:   Close your eyes, take three deep breaths, using the gift of your imagination imagine yourself siting in a movie theater in front of a blank screen.   Take a movie clip from something you fear; it could be from your past or … Continue reading

My friend Lindy who is a rock star movement expert recently reminded me that movement is our natural state of being implemented by our ancestors, exercise was created by man when we stopped moving. Movement is also a natural stress relieving practice in life. Make the most of your transitions this week and incorporate movement in the midst of your daily transitions. When moving from point A to point B simply maximize your movement: instead of walk, skip or jog; take the stairs a few times before going to your destination.   It doesn’t have to be a huge chunk of time out of your day. Simply make the moments work for you when you are in them. Movement of any kind enhances productivity and oxygenates the body: 90% of our biological energy is oxygen fueled. What if you can flip into the mindset of simply saying: “Today, I am going to increase my ability to recognize optimal opportunities to move more through out the day…and have fun doing it.” For example today I was feeling pressure in my body and rather than pushing through my “to-do” list I stood up and went out in my backyard and jumped and … Continue reading

4  Stress Relief Tips Used Around the World 1. India: Pranayama Breathing Techniques => Sitting with your legs comfortable crossed, preferably on a pillow your palms open and facing up. Inhale deeply through your nose focusing on filling up your lungs and stomach with air. Exhale through your nose as your lungs release air and stomach pulls in as you exhale relax. Consciously focus in on each breath. Imagine breathing in the presence of God down to your cellular level and exhaling any worry, doubt or fear: Breathe in the Holy Spirit…exhale negative concerns. Repeat 10x. We breathe about 10-12 deep breaths per min. normally we breathe 20 – 25 x per min bringing in about 500 cc’s of air going into our lungs, 1/3 or ¼ of our lungs in use. When you do this breathing technique you bring in 6 x more air going in with each breath in (3000 cc’s). Respiration instruments slow down breathing to lower blood pressure. When we breathe shallow, respiration goes up because brain says we need more O2. Many studies link the cause of heart attack, stroke, asthma, panic disorders, cancer to lack of O2.

Enjoy a quick look into the fuel behind the mental muck that occupies way to much head space and self-care systems worth your attention for mental clarity and high functioning.   Basically, 90 % of your actions and responses in life flow from what is referred to in NLP as your SHIP: Strategies/Habits/Impulses/Programs (I will give you more insight into your SHIP in the near future).   10% of your conscious mind is driven by your WAR: Willpower/Analytics/Reason AND FOUR physical conditions/emotions that quickly paralyze your ability to use your WAR for your highest good and the good of those concerned:   Hunger Anger Lonely Tired Sick   Perhaps you are all too familiar with your HALT?  Plus the “S”. In college when I didn’t eat enough of the right things or at the best time to fuel my body my friends would say, “Look out, here comes the gremlin.” My mind would flip into a crazy impatient, reactive zone that would often result in a lot of clean up. After I ate, my mental clarity would return along with the ability to choose a response that better aligned with the person I am committed to being in this world. … Continue reading

The Following Excerpt is Taken from Lauren’s International Best Selling Book NOW Available in Ebook: Click Here for More Behind the scenes of stress   “What am I afraid of?”   Behind every experience of anger is a fear. The next time you feel angry, ask yourself, “What if I fail?” Know that your definition of failure flows directly from your belief system (as explored in Chapter 3, “Messages We Get Growing Up”). What would you dare to do in life if you knew you could not fail? ~ Unknown   “What will other people think?”   When we worry about what other people will think, we end up becoming our own publicist and exhaust ourselves every day protecting our reputation. We stress out doing daily damage control when we could be putting that energy toward learning, growing, and creating solutions.   “What am I worried about?”   The German word for “worry” means “to strangle” and the Greek word for “worry” means “to divide the mind.” The word “doubt” means to be uncertain about something. Most of the time, stress is felt when you doubt yourself and your ability to handle a situation. Jesus spoke about the craze of … Continue reading

Nearly 80% of all doctor visits are stress-related and 43% of adults are sick because of stress.[1] A landmark 20-year study conducted by the University of London concluded that unmanaged reactions to stress were a more dangerous risk factor for cancer and heart disease than either cigarette smoking or high cholesterol foods.[2] Get the picture? Workplace stress not only costs money; it costs lives. Stress is a silent killer and one of the top stressors that occur in the workplace: “Oh no, what if I lose my job? I stress out every time I have to speak, travel, complete a project by a deadline, or have a performance review.” Anxiety shuts down the brains ability to tune into available options for solution. A mental tip to help solve workplace anxiety: What if you know that no matter what situation you find yourself in at … Continue reading
