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. Since relationships are such a stressor for us women, I brought certified confidence and relationship coach, Alex Streisand, back on The Stress Less Show to talk all about this relationship killer…

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 Cope with the Stress of Caregiving

How to Cope with the Stress of Caregiving

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that getting older is filled with a lot of stress. When we are kids, our parents and parental figures often act as our protectors from the day to day stresses and responsibilities that are now commonplace in our lives - bills, work, insurance, you name it. Our parents take care of us, so we can feel free to explore and learn about the world. However, one thing that we don’t always like to talk about getting older is the stress that comes from having to become caregivers in life, for our aging parents, chronically ill loved ones, and more. It can be overwhelming to manage caregiving responsibilities with our own daily lives, and it inevitably affects everyone at some point as time goes on. That is why this week on The Stress Less Show, we are talking about how to manage the stress that comes with caregiving…

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.

That is why this month on The Stress Less Show, our theme is all about family obligations. To start us off this week, I brought parent and teen coach, Tracey Lukes, on the show to talk about managing stress in our relationships with our kids.

How to Navigate Organizational Changes

How to Navigate Organizational Changes

Organizational changes - these two words are very common in corporate America and for a lot of people, they come with a lot of stress, fear, and panic attached to them. Changes in your organization can result in layoffs, demotions, promotions, relocations, you name it! All of those possibilities have their own challenges attached to them so it is only natural that you might be overwhelmed by just the thought of a reorganization at work.

How to Start and Stick to Budgeting

How to Start and Stick to Budgeting

This week on the Stress-Less Show, we are talking about Budgeting. I know, your head may still be spinning from all the numbers you spent pouring over on tax day, but now is a perfect time to start crafting a budget that you can stick to so that tax season is a little less stressful. Money Mindset Expert and Certified CPA, Mala Dukhi of Wise Women Smart Money, is back on the show to talk all about how and why to start budgeting.

Let’s be honest: Budgeting is not most people’s idea of a good time. It requires taking a look at your bank accounts and debts and unfortunately, that makes it really easy for most of us to just avoid altogether. Mala noted that “Most people that I've talked to avoid looking at their numbers and the more you avoid the more anxiety and stress you're going to have. So…
