4 Anxiety Relief Tips for Parents with Empty Nest Syndrome

To those parents dealing with the anxiety of Empty Nest Syndrome....you are NOT alone.

So many of us are facing the change of having our babies leave the nest- be it for kindergarten or for college.  It all brings with it the same chord-cutting discomfort. It's actually got a name - the empty nest syndrome.

 

I have found the following tips helpful for managing the intensity of the time.

1. Write a list of the things you are excited about for your child's new time- new friends, new skills, new activities, new stories, new challenges through which they develop their strength and character....As you write- visualize and feel the excitement of their success.

2. Write a list of the things you are excited about for yourself - skip dinner when you want to, eat whatever you want, list the books you want to read, the movies you want to watch, the new classes you want to take...it's time to be all about YOU. (This applies for the young mom too- be intentional about your hours of...

Manifesting Tool That Works Magic

This is a great manifesting tool / process that works with the Law of Attraction AND your brain to create physiological and energetic boosts in your body.

 

So much of my work in helping people master their emotions, is about switching out  fear and doubt, and turning on  power and hope.  I have many tools in my toolbox for doing this, but this is one of my favorites.

It's literally a rocket of power-boosting energy.  It raises your vibration really fast, and is just a joy to do. The cool part? Not only are you manifesting with the Law of Attraction the whole time you're doing it, but you're also working with the bartender in your brain. You're getting your brain to secrete "Happy" chemicals into your bloodstream. I'm talking about dopamine, endorphin, oxytocin and serotonin.  What I refer to as the Power Martini (as opposed to the Puny Martini).

So here's how it works:

1.Pick a goal that you want to manifest and write it at the top of a page. In...

3 Ways Kissing Can Reduce Stress

Kissing...It's a fabulous way to reduce stress!

We all love it - the way it feels, the way it looks, the memories it sparks, the physical sensations it fills us with. OOO eeeee... Kissing rocks, lets face it! A make-out sesh can work magic with the old bartender in our brains that I'm always talking about.  Kissing orders us up some awesome cocktails. Check this out!

  1. The physical excitement may prompt your brain to release dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure.  (Who doesn't want more of that?)
  2. While that's going on, other parts of your brain are quieting down negative emotions that might have been rattling around.
  3. Another benefit of a luscious lip-lock is that your pituitary gland releases oxytocin - the "bonding hormone".  Kick up the oxytocin level and you feel relaxed and content, and even more!  Your body starts to reduce stress, induces sleep, helps socialization, and fosters generosity. What's not to like?

So my advice people?-...

Enhance Visualization for Goal Achievement with Neuroscience

When visualizing, use neuroscience to engage more of your senses for goal achievement. 

 

We all know that visualization is a critical part of achieving our goals. Not all of us know how to amp up the experience to engage more of our brain's support. Things happen so fast for those of us who have our brains in the game.

Here are four simple way to make things even more powerful than just visualizing alone. Use some neuroscience magic and turn on more brain centers by engaging as many senses as possible.

Enhance visualization requires the senses.

1. Sound: Use one amazing piece of music that always ramps up your joy and energy. I am a composer and create my own music. One of my favorite pieces I created for a joy boost I captured during the creation process for YouTube. You can listen to it here. Using the same piece of music every time, means that you are training your brain to connect to the energy of your dreams. You're in training even when you listen to it just at...
