How to Transform Your Relationship with Trauma

How to Transform Your Relationship with Trauma

Trauma has a way of making us feel so alone and isolated. After we experience something so painful or tragic, it can feel like all we can do is be stuck inside of our trauma. How can we get out? How can anyone understand? However, the reality is that we can change the way we relate to our trauma. We can heal ourselves and we can heal our ability to relate to others. That is why I have brought on spiritual teacher and author, MaryJo Briggs Austin, on The Stress Less Show this week to share her story and provide a few great tips on how we can stop feeling stuck inside our trauma and transform ourselves for a happier and more joyful life. ..

How to Move Beyond Trauma

How to Move Beyond Trauma

If you have been following me for a while, you are probably familiar with my story. I began my journey into stress management after a childhood trauma led me to develop PTSD and suffer from years of anxiety, stress, night terrors, and more.

That is why this month on The Stress Less Show, we are focusing on how to deal with trauma and tragedy in our lives. This week, owner of Transfire Photography, Heather Manwaring, joined me on the show to share her story of healing from trauma and what she has done to help others and herself move forward…

How to Find The Right Therapy For You and Find Your Happy

How to Find The Right Therapy For You and Find Your Happy

Even though mental health has been starting to enter mainstream conversations these days, there is one area I think needs more attention: therapy. I’ll be the first one in the room to admit that I have a therapist I see regularly, but a lot of us out there I know still struggle with the idea of seeing a therapist. It can be overwhelming to try to push aside our preconceived notions of therapy and find a therapist - especially when we are struggling with mental health concerns or trauma in our lives. That is why for our last episode on mental health, I brought Ida Mae Devers, co-owner of Philly Family Life Counseling, on The Stress Less Show to share her thoughts on finding the right therapy for you so you can find your own happiness…

A major presentation at work, moving to a new city, planning a wedding, going out on a first date - what do all of these things have in common?

How to Get Ahead in Your Career As An Introvert

How to Get Ahead in Your Career As An Introvert

Often, it seems as if we live in an extroverted world, especially when it comes to our jobs. When we think about CEOs, managers and business leaders, we think of charismatic and energetic individuals who can strike up a conversation with everyone they meet. So when it comes to getting ahead in our careers, it can often feel like an uphill battle if we are not extroverted. That’s why I am so glad that founder of Boldly Quiet Consulting, Lorraine McCamley, came on this week’s episode of The Stress Less Show to help all of the introverts out there get ahead in their professional lives…

How to Cultivate a Healthy Relationship With Your Salary

September is finally here, fall is coming, and that means that we have a new theme on The Stress Less Show! This month, we are focusing on one of the top stressors in the US for women - and it’s a big one! We are talking all about job security. Feeling secure in our jobs is a major concern for both men and us women and a lot of that has to do with everyone’s favorite thing to talk about - money and salary.

Getting paid what we are worth and having enough money to provide for ourselves and our families can be an overwhelming challenge at times, leading us to work ourselves way past our breaking point. We have that fear in the back of our minds reminding us of all of our student loans, credit card debt, car payments, the list goes on. The cycle of earning money and spending it all never seems to end.

That is why I brought on Executive Coach, Erin Owen, to discuss our mindset around the money and salary we make, and the opportunities we have in our careers…

How to Stay in Recovery from Addiction

How to Stay in Recovery from Addiction

To say that facing addiction can be stressful is a major understatement. Recovery from addiction to drugs and alcohol often stirs up fear, shame, guilt, anxiety, the list goes on. It takes a lot of strength to admit that we are struggling and seek help from a recovery program or expert, but that is only half the battle. When we leave a recovery program, the question that must be faced is: what comes next? Fortunately, recovery coach Mie Potter of Finding Peace came on to this week’s episode of The Stress Less Show to discuss how we can stick to our recovery even after leaving a rehabilitation program…

How to Tap Into the Power of Lucid Dreaming

How to Tap Into the Power of Lucid Dreaming

Dreams are mysterious things. They can be funny, embarrassing, heartbreaking, and even terrifying; but how many of us really understand what is really going on with our dreams? We have been talking about physical heath on The Stress Less Show this month and getting enough sleep is a huge part of taking care of our health. However, sometimes our dreams get in the way of our ability to get a full night’s rest. The fear, worry and maybe even trauma from our waking life seeps into our subconscious and manifests in night terrors and nightmares. That is why I brought on the creator of the app Dream Catcher, Evan Stites-Clayton, to share how lucid dreaming can be a powerful tool we can put in our toolbox to deal with our dreams and nightmares…

How to Stop Emotional Eating and Heal Your Relationship with Food

How to Stop Emotional Eating and Heal Your Relationship with Food

How many of us have done this: we just got home from the WORST day ever. Our boss screamed at us again, we were late to everything, and by the time we get home, the only thing we can think about doing is plunging face-first into a huge tub of ice cream and whatever else we have in our kitchens. We all have those comfort foods we love to turn to when we aren’t feeling great. However, while it may make you feel good for a moment, food is not going to make all that stress go away. This week on The Stress Less Show, we are talking about food and emotional eating - a huge issue for so many of us out there. I brought Jessica Procini, founder of Escape From Emotional Eating, on the show to help us learn how to stop using food as a way to cope with our stress…

We’re taking a little bit of a different approach to stress in this week’s episode of The Stress Less Show. A lot of us view stress as being public enemy #1 in our lives.

How to Find Yourself

How to Find Yourself

You have to love yourself before you can love anyone else. How many times have we all heard that before? It may be a cliche but truly knowing yourself and accepting who you are is a critical part of a healthy relationship. This month on The Stress Less Show, we’ve been talking all about relationships and this week’s episode was all about the most important relationship we have in our lives - the one we have with ourselves - because the relationship we have with ourselves affects everything else we do.

How to Stop Criticizing Your Partner

How to Stop Criticizing Your Partner

Criticism - it is one of the top killers of relationships everywhere. How many of us have stories of really horrible fights with partners because they criticized our work or we criticized the way they clean the bathroom. While it is important to express ourselves in a relationship, harsh criticism can really hurt and cause a major strain on our relationship.

How to Strengthen Your Relationship Through Appreciation

How to Strengthen Your Relationship Through Appreciation

It’s always about the little things. How many times have we come home from a long day at work or spent all day cleaning the house and taking the kids to and from school and playdates, just for our partners to barely bat an eye? A major breaking point in relationships often arises when we feel like our partner is taking us for granted and not appreciating our value. We want to be valued for the work and time we put into our responsibilities and relationships, yet so many of us aren’t getting that and we don’t know why. Since this month’s theme on The Stress Less Show is all about relationships - one of the top stressors in America for women - I brought on Certified Relationship and Confidence Coach, Alex Streisand, to talk all about appreciation in relationships…

How to Prevent Money From Affecting Your Relationship

How to Prevent Money From Affecting Your Relationship

I’m no relationship expert, but I’m willing to bet that money has probably broken up a lot more marriages and relationships than any of us would care to admit. No one likes having those money conversations, but when we are in a serious relationship, talking finances starts to become the giant green elephant in the room that we can’t keep avoiding. This month, our topic on The Stress Less Show is Relationships - one of the top stressors in America for women - and we really can’t talk about addressing stress in our relationships without talking about combining finances. So, this week, I brought financial expert, Kristy Runzer, to talk more about the process of addressing money in our relationships…

How to Regain Control of Your Household Chores

How to Regain Control of Your Household Chores

Laundry, taking out the trash, loading the dishwasher - what do these things have in common? They all have the tendency to drive us crazy! Taking care of chores around our homes can be one of those persistent stressors. They have to be done repeatedly and when we have a million other things to take care of at work and in our lives, it can be easy to put off cleaning the house for one day...or two or twenty. The longer we keep pushing off our household chores, the more difficult they become and we then have to spend an entire day buried in dirty clothes and dishes. It happens to all of us, which is why this week on the Stress Less Show, I brought on organizational expert, Sarah Grace of Embrace Your Space NYC, to talk all about household chores…

It’s that time of year! June is here, the weather is heating up, and that means school is out for the summer! We all love summer vacations and quality family time, but let’s face it, no one knows how to push our buttons more than our family. Between kids being at home more often and planning trips and beach days with the family, the summer can mean sun and stress for a lot of us.
